I developed Focus 500 as a response to, or rebuttal of, drugs such a Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate, dextroamphetamine sulfate and amphetamine sulfate) that are designed to increase dopamine in the brain in order to increase concentration and focus. Unfortunately, like all pharmaceuticals, they are addictive and do not “fix the problem”. Drugs never fix or cures anything because they treat the symptoms of disease and health problems and not the underlining cause. They also come with a lot of side effects (See below).
Focus 500 is formulated with all natural ingredients to increase Focus and Concentration without the result of dependency or harmful side effects. It is a balanced blend of nutrients that feed the brain so it is able to function to its capacity. Unleash the full potential of your brain and bring your cognition to a level you didn’t know was possible.

Attention Deficit Disorder, ADD, according to the American Psychiatry Association, hereinafter noted as the APA, is a recent disease that supposedly afflicts over 5 million Americans, mostly young boys. ADD is generally characterized by hyperactivity, with tendencies toward fidgeting, loud outbursts, learning disabilities, and generally unruly behavior. It is perhaps the only disease in American history which may be legally diagnosed by people with no medical credentials whatsoever, including teachers, school counselors, aides, principals, even parents. No lab tests, blood tests, microscope studies, or definitive diagnostic tests exist for ADD.
Not every society has redefined the norms of childhood (and especially boyhood) in such a way that a large percentage of its children are diagnosed with a “mental disorder” called ADHD. Not every society has embraced mental steroids to enhance their children’s academic performance and control their behavior. They have found other ways to deal with the often annoying juiced-up energy level of childhood. – Time Magazine
In A Disease Called Childhood, Wedge examines the factors that have created a generation addicted to stimulant drugs. Instead of focusing only on treating symptoms, she looks at the various potential causes of hyperactivity and inattention in children, and behavioral and environmental—as opposed to strictly biological—treatments that have been proven to help. In the process, Wedge offers a new paradigm for child mental health—and a better, happier, and less medicated future for American children. – A Disease Called Childhood by Marilyn Wedge.
