Attention Deficit Hyper Disorder (ADHD)
AFA + ADHD
EFA, or essential fatty acids Omega 3’s are linked to multiple increases in many brain functions, mood and attention focus. Docosahexaenoic acid DHA, eicosapentaenoic acid EPA and alpha-linolenic acid ALA, essentially modulate the effects of ADHD; they make the dopamine that is available more able to bind to receptors on neurons therefore work.
AFA contains the exact 20 amino acids essential for life in a tiny cell, a highly digestible form that easily crosses into the blood brain barrier. Of particular interest to those with ADHD or anyone seeking increasing cognitive function are tyrosine, phenylalanine, tryptophan and histidine, arginine, methionine, cysteine and glutamic acid perfectly balanced and 97% bioavailable. AFA is a protein brain fuel that when taken daily is a potent driver toward health. AFA supplementation may allow those currently on ADHD meds to lower their doses and function well, or possibly eliminate them entirely. AFA is a curative potent food, so it is 100% safe for children and adults and because of this doses can vary. AFA is a strong detox agent removing heavy metal toxins while also bio stimulating every cell in the body.
