answer to post 249///very confused


i seem to be abit confused by your answer because recently i posted a question asking you about my son that got learning difficulties and you recommended the same prodect called EyeQ

i know posted a question about my 3 year old daughter that is very hyper active and i need something to help her relax and you recommended the same product which is for 2 totally different problems or does this EyeQ just work for everything.

Although it may seem confusing, the ingredients found in this product helps for both.

Best of luck!

Tanya, Omega 3 (Eye-Q) does help for both. Another alternative is either Melatone Syrup (Available from Sportron) which works out cheaper and has all the fatty acids including magnesium and zinc - which is often helpful for very active children and concentration difficulties. It does not taste great (neither does EyeQ), so you might have to give a smartie as a reward. Also remeber to shake the bottle well otherwise the ingredients dont mix well and all the fishy oil is on top. I have also heard the Biostrath works for the same things.

Just a word of caution - the supplements did not help much for my 6 year old who was very hyperactive and had learning difficulties in school. He was eventually put on Ritalin and he is doing amasing. He is a normal playful boy without that constant jumping around etc. Hoewever, my 5 year old is also at times very active and can sit still and concentrate and I found that the Melatone did help him with the over activity.

Your daughter is to young for doctors to consider Ritalin, so certainly give the supplemnts a try. You need to use it for a while - like a month, before you really notice the difference.

Good luck
