Source Naturals - Attentive Child - 60 Tablets
Source Naturals Attentive Child enhances mental concentration. Studies have shown that very active children may have special dietary needs. Source Naturals Attentive Child is designed to support your child's ability to focus - and kids love the sweet and tart taste! DMAE, a substance normally found in the brain, has been shown to help enhance mental concentration. Magnesium also plays a role in neuromuscular transmission and activity. L-Aspartate, an amino acid, acts as a neurotransmitter. Grape seed extract is rich in procyanidins, which have powerful antioxidant activity, and phosphatidylserine is a vital component of cell membranes, including those in the brain.
Comprehensive Brain Support
Parents want a safe and natural product to support their children’s ability to focus. Source Naturals studied the research and created a formula, based on the latest breakthroughs in cerebral and nervous system biochemistry. Attentive Child is a formula that can yield discernible effects for your child while she or he is taking it. Each ingredient in Attentive Child plays a role in brain and nervous system structure or functioning, or is involved in important biochemical pathways.
Neurotransmitters and Brain Metabolism
DMAE, a substance normally found in the brain, boosts brain metabolism and has been shown in numerous clinical studies to enhance concentration. It works without accelerating your child’s heart rate, blood pressure, or causing jittering or shaking. DMAE is a precursor to choline, which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, a molecule proven in clinical studies over the past 40 years to be associated with faster brain processing times.
DMAE can be thought of as a messenger molecule in the brain that has been found in research studies to exist in larger quantities when thinking is faster, less prevalent when thinking and memory are reduced. Action of the neurotransmitters within the brain is speeded up with increased acetylcholine levels.
Essential Fatty Acid Metabolism
Because 60% of the brain is composed of fat, fatty acid formation is critical to brain 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. Magnesium is necessary for the transmission of nerve signals, and, along with zinc, for the processing of essential fatty acids into other vital biochemicals. Lecithin contains four phospholipids—fatty acid building-block molecules in nerve cell membranes.
Nerve Cell Structure and Communication
Phosphatidylserine is vital in nerve cell communication and the electrical activity of the brain. This chemical can cross the blood–brain barrier easily. Phosphatidylserine is a fatty phosphorous containing (phospholipid) that is part of all healthy cell membranes. This is important because the electrical nerve impulse critical to most brain functions travels along the nerve cell membrane. Phosphatidylserine also increases production
of acetylcholine, “the thinking neurotransmitter.” Numerous studies have demonstrated that phosphatidylserine facilitates conduction of nerve impulses, assisting in cellto-cell communication.
The lipid-rich environment of the brain can oxidize and turn rancid, and so antioxidants are required to maintain its structural integrity and optimal functioning. Fat molecules are particularly prone to oxidation by free radicals found in environmental pollutants, and certain foods, or formed by the body's metabolic processes.
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals in the brain and throughout the body, and are absolutely critical to good health. Grape seed extract is a plant-derived antioxidant that protects the integrity of fatty acids in nerve cell membranes.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
