1) What is Focus Attention?

Focus Attention combines many of the B complex Vitamins with herbal ingredients and other nutrients in a formula designed to support a number of brain functions and processes for increased performance.

DMAE is a precursor of Acetylcholine, although there is no conclusive evidence. Acetylcholine is a key brain neurotransmitter which plays an important role in memory, especially long term and learning. Double-blind clinical trials have shown DMAE to significantly improve of learning abilities in children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or some other form of learning disability.

When taking DMAE, some consumers have been experiencing drowsiness, elevated blood pressure, weight loss and insomnia. Additionally, some manufacturers recommend caution when using DMAE by people with epilepsy or a history of convulsions.

Grape seed extract has powerful antioxidant properties, hence protest the body from free radical damage. It may work to prevent certain conditions (such as cardiac health, blood vessel health, age related macular degeneration) or it can slow the progression of others (liver damage, oxidative stress damage, etc). Although an exact daily dosage has not been established, doses of between 100-300 milligrams per day have been used in studies and are prescribed in some European countries. It is considered generally safe but side effects may appear (headache, itchy scalp, nausea or dizziness).

Adults and children over the age of 12 are advised taking 3 level scoops to 2 oz. water twice daily. Children aged between 4 and 12 years should add approximately 2 level scoops to 1.5 oz. water twice daily, whereas children 3 years old should not exceed 1 level scoop to 1 oz. water taken twice daily.

First of all I want to point out that I’m a REAL customer who actually purchased and used this product. I found it effective, a good overall deal. I think it’s a good supplement for those without any serious deficiencies or disorders.


I went through some personal difficulties recently. I was exhausted. My PA told me about this product and within 2 weeks I noticed the first improvements.


Sonar focus attention has worked great for me! I feel like I have a better quality of life and more mentally energized and able to focus… But still can’t figure out why on some days it seems to give me a headache … Maybe coincidental.
