My daughter is 8 years old & her concentration is a bit poor. She gets easily distracted & a bit on the hyper side. I would like to know if there is anything herbal I can give her because the school has recommended I put her on Ritalin but I’m not really keen on going that root.Brain Health
Hi, Vital IQ Boost was recommended for my daughter to help with concentration and focussing during exam time. She works really hard and does well at school,but places a lot of stress on herself. I read that you can supplement IQ Boost with 1x B complex capsule to help calm nerves. I would like to know if you would also recommend using the IQ Boost and supplementing it with the B complex. My daughter turns 11 in June – also should I give only 1 or 2 IQ capsules per day? I have asked at various pharmacies, but they seem unsure. Kind regards, MaricaBrain Health

My daughter (15) started taking your Iron supplements a week ago. Within a day she got very itchy. Could this be caused by the Iron? How long does it take for the Iron to pass out of her system?I would appreciate your advice.Thank you, ClairBrain Health
My daughter is writing her final matric exams. I have bought Vital IQ BOOST for her. The dosage is 2 capsules daily. Must she take 2 capsules at once or 1 capsule twice a day. What time of day would you recommend that she have them? Also is this a good product for her to be taking or would you recommend that she take something else? Thank you.
My 9 year old has been prescribed with straterra 18mg. First it was ritalin, but we thought straterra was a non stimulant. We have not given it to her as side effects do not look too great. She lacks concentration, fine motor skills, memory. Please suggest a complete alternative.Kids

My son has failed this term grade 2 the school has insisted my son goes on some sort of concentration table as we refuse to put him on Retaline.
He has currently gone for a OT as well. As an overall assessment it is recommended by both assessments.
