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, MaricaAllergies
