What does Focus ADDult contain?
Focus ADDult is a 100% herbal formula which contains the following carefully selected herbs in therapeutic dosage:
Centella asiatica (also known as Gotu cola)
Found wild in moist areas throughout Africa and Asia, this herb is traditionally used as a tonic to support a healthy brain and nervous system. Centella asiatica is recommended to facilitate mental clarity, healthy brain function and a generally balanced mood. This medicinal herb is so highly respected in Ayurvedic medicine for its effect on the mind that it is even said to increase knowledge of Brahman - the supreme reality! Centella asiatica is also a favorite food of elephants and, as we all know, elephants never forget! Recent studies have suggested that Centella asiatica improves cerebral blood flow (CBF) and circulation in general (Pointel JP, Boccalon H, Cloarec M, Ledevehat C, Joubert M. Angiology 1987;38[1 Pt 1]:46-50), thereby allowing oxygen-rich blood to penetrate deep into the brain. Studies have also suggested that this herb may be beneficial as a mood tonic (Bradwejn J, Zhou Y, Koszycki D, Shlik J. J Clin Psychopharmacol. 2000;20:680-684).
Rosmarinus officinalis (Also known as Rosemary)
The ancients were well acquainted with this herb which had a reputation for strengthening memory. In Shakespeare's 'Hamlet', Prince Hamlet's ode to his love Ophelia includes a mention of ".rosemary, that's for remembrance" - demonstrating the general prevailing folk knowledge of the time, which recognized Rosemary as a tonic for sound memory. Rosemary is well-known in modern herbalism as an all round tonic and energizer. Like Centella asiatica, studies have also suggested that Rosemary can promote healthy cerebral blood flow (CBF) (Pointel JP, Boccalon H, Cloarec M, Ledevehat C, Joubert M. Angiology 1987;38[1 Pt 1]:46-50). In addition, recent laboratory analysis has found that Rosemary contains acetyl-cholinesterase inhibitors, chemicals that prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine in the brain (al-Sereiti MR, Abu-Amer KM, Sen P. Pharmacology of rosemary [Rosmarinus officinalis Linn.] and its therapeutic potentials. Indian J Exp Biol. 1999;37:124-130). Acetylcholine is a brain chemical which is involved in memory functioning, and deficiency in this chemical has been linked to serious mental diseases affecting memory.
Panax Ginseng (Also known as Asian Ginseng)
This herb has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 5000 years. Regarded by the Chinese as the 'king' of herbs, it is one of the most prized and expensive Chinese herbs. A three-month study showed a significant increase in subjective "quality-of-life" scores among ginseng users (Marasco C, Vargas R, Salas V, Begona I. Double-blind study of a multivitamin complexes supplemented with ginseng extract. Drugs Exp Clin Res. 1996;22:323-329). Similarly college-aged volunteers who took 100 mg of ginseng twice daily for 12 weeks experienced a statistical improvement in the speed at which they were able to perform mathematical calculations (D'Angelo R, Grimaldi M, Caravaggi M, et al. A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study on the effect of a standardized ginseng extract on psychomotor performance in healthy volunteers. J Ethnopharmacol. 1986;16:15-22). Soviet scientist, Dr. Brekham, identified it as a superior adaptogen, normalizing body functions, reducing stress and preventing disease (Brekham, I.I. Eleutherococcus. Leningrad: Nauka Publishing House. 1968). Further studies demonstrated that mice fed with Panax ginseng were able to learn tasks quicker, perform at a faster rate and make fewer mistakes (Iljutjecok, R.J., Tjaplygina, S.R. "The Effect of a Preparation of Eleutherococcus Senticosus on Memory in Mice." The Dept. of Physiology, Academy of Sciences of the Soviet Union, Novosibirsk. 1978). Panax ginseng should not be confused with either Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosis) or American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius).
