Top 4 Supplements for Focus in Children and Adults

advice: wellness john gray

If you have ever suffered from an inability to focus, whether with full-blown symptoms of what’s commonly considered “ADHD” or a milder version, you probably know the depth of frustration, anxiety, and regret which so often accompanies this condition.

Ironically it is a condition affecting some of the most creative, brilliant, and innovative minds in today’s world.

As a result, millions of children, teens, and adults are overwhelmed, distracted, and sometimes immobilized by the ever-increasing stimulation and stress from our busy lives.

With these focus challenges, people may misunderstand and call you (or your child)  “flaky,” “irresponsible,” “troublesome,” or simply think you “don’t care.”

I know that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In fact, I wrote a whole book called Staying Focused in a Hyper World with natural and practical solutions for ADHD, memory, and brain performance. And in the video below, I’ll share some all-natural recommendations you can try today for an easier, more successful, and more fulfilling (school) year ahead.

In the post below, we're even highlighting 4 very special recommendations to get you started.

A Drug-Free (Judgment-Free) Solution to Focus Problems


Maybe you know what it’s like when you have a deadline to keep and you have every good intention of not disappointing people. You sit down to “get on with it” and then it starts: social media, email, getting a snack, texts, you find yourself lost in a seemingly unavoidable string of distractions, until you finally slink off to bed in defeat at the end of the day, with almost no real progress made.

This isn’t you. This isn’t your fault. And there is a solution that doesn’t involve prescription drugs or beating yourself up.

So let’s get into my top 4 recommendations to get you (or your child) started today on the path to focus, confidence, and success.

If you’d like to learn how to use these supplements or even which supplements to try in order to meet your particular wellness goals, you can find my recommended protocols here.


1. Bravo Super Probiotics (Yogurt, Capsules, Non-Dairy)

Probiotics are the natural medicine of the future. Each day, more research reveals that probiotics (beneficial microbes) regulate both the digestion of our food and healthy gut function. But, surprisingly, they are also the most powerful way to improve brain function.

For proper functioning and healing of the brain, different microbes produced in the gut are required to support each brain neuron. There is a direct connection between gut function and digestion to the optimal functioning of the brain.

Exposure to:

  • antibiotics and medications (both over-the-counter and prescription)
  • pesticides in our food
  • chronic stress and
  • added hormones in our meats…

...can kill and eliminate these positive and necessary good microbes in the gut. For optimal brain health and healing, we need to regularly replenish our gut with a wide variety of probiotics.


Bravo Super Probiotics have 42 different strains of beneficial microbes in a form that is most effectively used by the gut and brain.

It comes in three forms: homemade yogurt using Bravo powders and colostrum; Bravo capsules, which are made from Bravo yogurt; and Bravo non-dairy probiotic drink, which is also made at home. Both children and adults love the taste of the yogurt or the non-dairy drink. Many people report that in just three months, they can completely replenish the gut with beneficial probiotics and restore healthy gut function.

These special probiotics have a short shelf life, so they cannot be purchased already made in stores. They are so powerful that different healing centers and other healing modalities use them to support the treatment of a variety of conditions ranging from autism to cancer.

Imagine how great you’d feel in as little as three months?


 2. Grape Seed Extract

Wow. I remember the day I discovered this simple supplement and the huge impact it had on my brain immediately. This all-natural extract from grape seeds gives you more focus, clarity, comprehension, and sharpness nearly right away. It is a super antioxidant for the brain because it has the amazing ability to recycle vitamin C, thus, making vitamin C 50 times more powerful!

In addition, it increases blood flow to the brain, which supports brain healing as well as providing increased protection from toxicity. This is especially important for children, teens, and adults with focus issues because our poor diet and the toxicity in our environment create inflammation in the brain which inhibits optimal functioning. There are many antioxidants available but they don’t necessarily reduce inflammation in the brain. Grape seed extract targets brain activity directly. It’s a simple and powerful addition to your protocol.


 3. Cho-Wa Tea

I’ll admit, this tea is one of my favorite supports for my brain. In fact, every Friday when my daughter and I get together to write and develop MarsVenus content, we drink this tea all day. It gives us our super brain powers for focus, productivity, fun, and efficiency.

This quick and “easy to make tea” helps to restore normal adrenal function. It is packed with ten different special herbs from around the world known for centuries to provide stamina, feelings of euphoria, hormonal balance along with increased energy and focus. These special herbs are called adaptogens.

Adaptogens help you feel calm when you are stressed, and they give you energy when you are tired — without any negative side effects. Most importantly, they help to balance blood sugar levels. And yes, with a high-quality green tea as its base, even children can enjoy this special drink safely.


 4. Phosphatidylserine (PS)

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is the primary phospholipid found in brain cell membranes. This substance in the brain often declines with age which can cause the memory lapses and lack of focus that so many people associate with “aging.”

However, no matter what age you are, you can supplement with PS for incredible results. This super supplement is well-known to increase memory and the connectivity and cell communication in the brain making you more focused, but at the same time, more flexible.

All combined these 4 supplements will give the brain the unique and all-natural support it needs for better:

  • Focus
  • Clarity
  • Memory

So that you (or your child) can feel more confident, successful and at ease in life, work, or school.

I hope this list has helped you as you research the best natural solutions for you and your loved ones.

That feeling of knowing you can trust your mind to focus on tasks at hand and remember the small, important details in your life is priceless.
