- How does it work?
Attentive Child contains an array of nutrients that help children calm down and mentally focus. It contains DMAE, a substance normally found in the brain, shown to help enhance mental concentration. Magnesium activates over 300 different processes in the body including muscle function, activation of B vitamins, relaxation of muscles and functioning of the nervous system. Magnesium plays a calming role in neuromuscular transmission and activity. l-Aspartate, an amino acid, acts as a neurotransmitter to stimulate receptors that are thought to play a role in learning and memory. Grape seed extract is rich in procyanidins, which have powerful antioxidant activity, and phosphatidylserine is a vital component of nerve cell membranes, where electric signals are transmitted. Both have lipid components that protect cellular function with antioxidant activity.
- What brain functions are addressed?
Attentive Child supports healthy brain metabolism, so necessary for the young. It provides the building blocks of brain cell membranes, nerve cell communication, and essential fatty acid metabolism.
- How does essential fatty acid metabolism affect the brain?
Because 60 percent of the brain is composed of necessary fats, fatty acid formation is critical to brain and cognitive function. Attentive Child contains the nutrients the body requires to transform essential fatty acids from the diet into other vital fatty acids and important biological compounds. Attentive Child contains nutrients to help metabolize and convert fatty acids into useful compounds.
