People with ADHD have an Imbalance or Dysfunction in the Regulation of Neurotransmitters

Studies have shown that people with ADHD have an imbalance or dysfunction in the regulation of brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.[1], [2] Like Vayarin, Accentrate® addresses lipid imbalances by providing EPA and DHA conjugated to phospholipids, additionally, Accentrate supports proper neurotransmitter regulation by providing additional vitamins and minerals including vitamins B12, B( and B6, vitamin D3 and magnesium.  Accentrates ingredients include: L-methylfolate is the active, bioavailable form of B9 and folate…


Why do the EPA / DHA doses seem low?

Oftentimes people with ADHD are recommended to take Omega-3 fatty acids (O3FA), specifically EPA and DHA. Most EPA and DHA supplements are derived from fish oil. When EPA and DHA are extracted from fish oil, the O2FA are either in triglyceride form, or ethyl ester form. These are apples to oranges when compared to the phospholipid form. What is the difference? First of all, it’s important to know, that EPA…

Is ADHD Real?

It isn’t uncommon to hear some people suggest that ADHD is not a real condition, rather it’s just a spoiled child or bad parenting. This simply is not true, and it’s demonstrably false. Science has definitely shown that ADHD is a condition. Forgetting the self-interest of the pharmaceutical industry, there are scores of scientific research from academia studying ADHD. Academia has studied the behavior of children, genetics, environment, nutrition, blood…

Genetics vs Environment

You may hear people concerned about allowing their children to play video games, watch tv, or play on a tablet because if they do it too much, they will “get ADHD.” You don’t “get ADHD.” You have it, or you don’t. It’s in your genetics. However, the severity of ADHD ranges from mild to severe. And improving your environment can decrease the severity of the ADHD symptoms. When a child…

ADHD Stimulant Drug Side Effects

Often children with ADHD are prescribed stimulant medication. Most children that take stimulant drugs end up taking them over a prolonged period of time, even up to many years. These stimulants cause the brain to release increased amounts of neurotransmitters that help with attention and focus. Unfortunately, these stimulants often have undesirable side-effects while children are using them. Some side-effects include: loss of appetite, insomnia, stomach problems, irritability, headaches, and…


Fatty Acid Metabolism in ADHD

“The etiology of ADHD is generally acknowledged to be complex and multifactorial. Suggested contributory factors have been diet, nutrition, and in particular abnormalities in the metabolism of the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids.”[1] Omega-3 and omega-6 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (“LCPUFA”) are of critical importance for normal brain development and function. During fetal life, large amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 LCPUFA, especially docosahexaenoic acid (“DHA”) and arachidonic acid (“AA”)…

Dysfunction in Neurotransmitter Regulation

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a complex disorder that has multiple causes, this includes genetics in combination with environmental factors. ADHD has been blamed on bad parenting, or a “bad” attitude. However, brain-imaging studies have shown that children with ADHD have an underlying neurological dysfunction, which likely accounts for their behavior. In the one sense, these children’s brains have yet to come fully “on-line.” It has been suggested that…
