Bottom Line

8) Our Bottom Line

Clarocet Junior is a natural remedy which comes as a support for the mental and emotional balance of children. It is advertised as a safe and subtle support for those who are interested in improving certain aspects of the emotional well-being of their children, attention span and mental sharpness, concentration capacity and an optimal cognitive function. It is also helpful in relaxing anxious, moody and irritable children. However there is no evidence that whole formula was involved in any scientific study. In addition, being a dietary supplement, it is not FDA approved. In these cases and considering it is a product addressed to children it is always advised to inform the healthcare professional before starting a treatment.

Jessica is 12 and sometimes she gets all depressed and fatigued, especially in the afternoon. School has been a serious issue because of that, but with Clarocet Junior it’s getting better. She’s more energized and positive.

My oldest son suffers from concentration problems, undiagnosed so far. I’ve tried many supplements and even prescription medication, but I love Clarocet Junior because it has no side effects, it is safe and seems to work.
