BrightSpark is advertised as a 100% natural homeopathic remedy specially created to reduce the symptoms of hyperactivity and to improve concentration in children. Although BrightSpark is designed for children, the manufacturer claims that this brain supplement can be effective for people all ages.

The manufacturer is the US-based company Native Remedies. The company produces and markets over 250 herbal and homeopathic remedies, designed to treat or relieve a wide variety of health concerns and conditions for people of all genders and ages.

According to the manufacturer, BrightSpark is 100% safe and non addictive. Sadly, Native Remedies show little evidence to support these claims.

BrightSpark is not a very fast acting brain supplement and most consumers should notice the first improvements after 3 to 6 weeks of use. However, some consumers may notice improvements immediately.

Native Remedies claims that the formula should prove particularly beneficial for children who suffer from ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and any other conditions that manifest through over-excitability, restlessness, and frenetic, sudden outbursts (behavioral issues).


1) BrightSpark Quick Facts

BrightSpark is a homeopathic remedy containing Hyoscyamus, Arsen iod, Tuberculinum, Vertarum alb and lactose. Homeopathy is a medicinal structural system which aims to treat people with highly diluted substances, with the purpose of determining the body heal through its own means. The principle of “like treats like,” which is at the core of homeopathy, claims that certain substances that in large doses would normally harm the patient causing unwanted symptoms can be used in smaller, safe amounts to treat the same symptoms.

Hyoscyamus has been used as a remedy which acts on the nervous system, intellect and cerebral activities with depressive or manic manifestations, over-excitability, acts of violence, phobias, restlessness, and general disruptive behavior.

Arsen iod is used to promote balance, to treat over-sensitivity, insecurity and anxiety. This homeopathic remedy is often recommended for people who tend to be restless, easily irritable and hyperactive, or excitable and impatient with sudden outbursts.


2) Details on BrightSpark Ingredients and Uses

BrightSpark includes the following ingredients: Hyoscyamus (30C), Arsen iod (30C), Tuberculinum (30C), Veratrum alb (30C), and lactose.

3) Does BrightSpark Work?

BrightSpark is a natural homeopathic remedy aimed to relieve symptoms of different types of attention disorders especially in children, but also in adults. Its claims include calming hyperactive children, improving focus and concentration, balancing mood and reducing involuntary twitching, spasms or noises.

One of the active ingredients of BrightSpark is Hyoscyamus, extracted from a plant known as henbane, which has a history of medicinal use. It has been known to help relieve over-excitability, restlessness and provide general relief from involuntary twitching or grunting. Henbane extract is also recommended as an excellent remedy for people having paranoid characteristics and enduring behavioral problems. It is also prescribed to treat physical disorders associated with uncontrolled trembling and also for bouts of dry coughing or for treating specific types of seizures or convulsions.

Another ingredient of BrightSpark is Arsen iod, a chemically prepared ingredient obtained from metallic arsenic and iodine, perfectly safe due to the high dilution of the arsenic. Arsen iod has been intensely used in treating attention disorders in children, primarily to promote a sense of balance, reducing temper tantrums and frustration.

The other ingredients in the BrighSpark formula are Verta alb, an ingredient prepared from a perennial plant from the Lily or Melanthiaceae family, which is a calming homeopathic substance used for relieving anxiety and soothing tension, and Tuberculinum, a homeopathic medicine that is prepared from sterilized bacteria, traditionally used for allergy-related complaints but can also be used to soothe irritability and for those with a flustered disposition.

The daily dosage of BrightSpark is two tablets taken three times on an empty stomach. There is also an initial dose of 1 tablet taken every hour for 6 hours on an empty stomach where possible. For the best results, this product should only be taken as indicated. The manufacturer also advises against strong mint-flavored candy, as it may reduce the benefits of the remedy. The product has no known side-effects.

BrightSpark reviews are available on the manufacturer’s website. What users mention includes: A complete turnaround since taking BrightSpark /I am impressed with the amazing results after one week, my ten-year-old can concentrate for more than 30 minutes / I see notable improvements at school and home chores, I am grateful for this formula.

Final Thoughts

8) Final Thoughts on BrightSpark

BrightSpark is a homeopathic remedy designed to relieve the symptoms of hyperactivity in children. The product also improves concentration and is supposed to have a number of other related benefits. Native Remedies, however, does not make any reference to clinical trials or research to support these claims. Also, the product received some mixed consumer reviews, some of the consumers complaining that the product has not delivered on its promises. The manufacturer does however offer a full refund on the purchase price, should the product be returned to them within one year time frame.

Overall, BrightSpark does look promising and it may offer the promised benefits. While online reviews are mixed, we can’t deny the fact that BrightSpark does seem to work for some consumers.

Over the Christmas holidays I didn’t give him Brightspark because there wasn’t any school. Shortly I noticed his behaviors changed, more irritated and more hyper. At that time I couldn’t figure out what happened then I realized I stopped giving him the Brightspark. and started him on it.

I was terrified when my son was diagnosed with ADHD. Not because of the health issue itself, but due to the drugs that are usually prescribed. I purchased a bottle of this homeopathic formula for him and even though I was doubtful, it worked wonders. Thank you!

My daughter has ADHD and it’s extremely difficult for her to stay still and focused in school and while doing her homework. BrightSpark helps her stay calmer and concentrate better.


The article was extremely helpful, thank you. For my grandson has several problems,along with ADHD, one of many things,That went hay wire, at birth.


My 5yo has been taking BrightSpark for about 3 weeks now. I noticed a difference in her right away. She seemed to slow down a bit and focus better. Also, she has Encopresis (bowl issues, soiling) and she has gone 2 full weeks without 1 single accident. Coincidence? I am all ready to buy a refill of these pills and she says they taste like chocolate.


ADHD is a brain disorder. Children in dysfunctional/ chaotic family systems as well as children in non-dysfunctional family systems have the disorder as well. Behavioral interventions are suggested to help the child and family function to capacity however, with researched medication or/homeopathic remedies that can help the child to sustain attention/focus, the child can learn how to manage symptoms, he/she will be able to interact with peers learning social skills and will be more likely befriended by their peers. Put a hyperactive, disruptive kid in the classroom and kids tend to shy away from those distracting behaviors.


My son is a HS student and he has an ADHD. He was never medicated but we started a Focus formula for an attention issues and we just introduced a Bright Spark for a better effects. The results we are getting are just opposite. He became very disruptive, angry, disrespectful even violent. He was never like this before. I don’t think I will ever give him an another dose of this product. Does anyone have similar respond to Bright Spark?

We just started our 5 year old son about 3 days ago and we are seeing him being more erratic, disrespectful, high strung than before. We have mixed feeling but we have been told it takes several weeks for the benefits to appear. Has this happened to anyone else? We are wondering if we should continue.

Reply to  Izabela

Yes. Our ADHD gson did very well on Brightspark initially but now he’s grown aggressive and violent. Loved Brightspark before but just can’t continue. Dropping it today.

My son, 11, never medicated before. Started BrightSpark. He only received 3-4 doses.
By day 2, his teacher asked what was going on with my son. He was described as being more irritable, more off focus, angry, and defiant. Teacher stated he had been doing well and trying hard the past few weeks.
He got in trouble twice in a matter of 3 days.
My son even asked what was the new white pill he had taken. He stated he thinks it made him more easily angered.
However, he was able to complete an long assignment without fussing.
I think Brightspark helped some with attention but it had adverse aggression side effects……
