Question Has anyone tried "Attend"

Has anyone tried "Attend" with any success? It seems to have a lot of good stuff in it, much more than B'Calmd. I would like some feedback before I order it and try if for my son.

Many thanks!

Re: Has anyone tried "Attend"

It actually has way LESS than beCalmd. Sure there are more ingrediants, but they are at doses so low that it would be almost impossible to expect a "normal" person to have good results using this much less a person who has ADD/ADHD.

Ever wonder why they dont list the amounts of their ingrediants on the web page?

Re: Has anyone tried "Attend"

Well when you go you will notice that the ingrediant amounts are not there. NO WEBSITE that sells this product lists the amounts of the ingrediants. So, after noticing this I emailed the ATTEND company. I told them that I was considering buying a large amount of the product but ONLY if they would send me a list of the ingrediants and the amounts of each ingrediant. They emailed me back and said no, asked if they could do anything else to get me to buy it, I said no thanks, not interested if I dont even know what Im getting, so they reluctantly sent me the list of ingrediants and amounts. Here it is:

Re: Has anyone tried "Attend"

Thanks so much Free Spirit for doing such good research. What other supplements would you suggest to go along with B'Calmed? My son has a pretty hearty case of ADHD and I hate to keep increasing his meds, but, what alternative is really going to work that he doesn't end up taking 25 vitamins a day?

beCalmd along with Omega3. Then add on others or switch to others if needed. Its trial and error just like meds but when the right combo is found it can be absolutely wonderful.

Have you read about Amens 6 ADD subtypes? Which subtype is your son?
