I am new to message boards - living in South Africa does not always provide one with the best options in technology, but nevertheless, I use the internet often and felt that I had to share my experience with people in the same situation as our family - so here goes:
My son is 12 years old and suffers from ADHD. He has been using Ritalin for about 3 years now. Suffering from ADHD, Ritalin helped somewhat for his hyperactivity and improved his concentration abilities, but he was still struggling in school to get his marks up. I was really concerned about this, because I knew he was capable of more and I know about all the side effects that Ritalin poses. He was only barely passing some of his subjects and still failing most of the others. I felt that I just had to do something to help my child in this situation - so much potential, but unable to achieve it properly. When I went to pick up a prescription of Ritalin (and I always don't like doing this), I asked the pharmacist if he had any suggestions, other than Ritalin, that I would help my son. He told me about a natural product Glutamag from a company called Natucor, which was specifically designed as a natural supplement to assist people suffering from ADHD and ADD. He suggested that I use it in addition to the Ritalin that my son is using and see how it goes.
Three weeks later, I not only noticed a considerable level of improvement in my son, but also got a call from his teacher who told me that my son's shown considerable improvement in class and in the quality of the work that he produced. It has been a year now since I visited my pharmacist that day. I waited this long to write about this, because I had to assure myself that Glutamag really worked. My son's marks in Mathematics have improved from an average of 45% to an average of 70%. My son is still using Ritalin, but in smaller dosages. Since he started using Glutamag as a supplement, he is achieving much closer to what we believe he is capable of.
I just thought I had to share this with all of you. There is more information available on this product on Natucor's website:
