Good news from Minnesota and California

A Minnesota mother who called in today reported that, although she is still working out the kinks in which supplements to use and in what level for her 9th grade son, she is starting to see improvements in her son’s behavior and school performance. The transition to high school has been a difficult one, the mother continued, but the transition was made easier by using the Attend and Neuran products. Thanks Minnesota Mom for your comments!

Another mother, this one from California, called to order Attend. She was a regular customer who suddenly stopped ordering a few months ago. "Her grades dropped," California Mom said. "Do you think her not being on Attend could have caused that?" I think she knows the answer. Welcome back California Mom!

One of the most satisfying aspects of running the phone lines is hearing stories like these. The day the success stories stop is the day I quit. Keep calling. I like my job!

Until Monday – many blessings to you all. Have a great weekend and don’t forget to give your kids a hug.

L-Carnitine Shown Effective for Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder

A recent study shows that supplementing with L-carnitine decreases attention problems and aggressive behavior in boys with ADHD. In this double-blind study, 24 boys between the ages of 6 and 13 years received L-carnitine or a placebo. The amount of L-carnitine used was 100 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight per day, with a maximum of 4 grams per day.

Reducing ADHD behavior is one of mayn L-carnitine benefits. In his book, The Carnitine Miracle, Robert Crayhon says " Nearly one-third of all deaths related to heart disease occur because of arrhythmias. L-carnitine is a valuable nutrient for the control of arrhythmias ..."
Clinical studies demonstrate the effectiveness of supplementary L-carnitine for weight management, the improvement of exercise performance and maintenance of a healthy heart.

L-carnitine is a darling in athletic circles for its ability to burn fat for energy for some time. Additionally, less pain and more endurance are also associated with supplementing with L-carnitine.

And to further the upside, there appears to be no downside to supplementing with L-carnitine. That said, L-carnitine can cause stomach upset if taken on an empty stomach.
