Nutrition Info

3) Ingredients of Synaptol

Synaptol includes the following ingredients:

  • Aconitum fer
  • Adrenalinum
  • Aesculus hipp, flos
  • Apis mel
  • Arg nit
  • Avena
  • Baptisia
  • Cochlearia arm
  • Phosphorus
  • Scleranthus an, flos
  • Scutellaria
  • Sumbul
  • Viola od

All the active ingredients in Synaptol are listed in the US Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia. Most are herbs known to help with concentration and mood.

Apis mel is obtained from honey bees and useful in treating insect and snake bites as well as headaches and painful urination. It’s also known to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties.

Homeopaths believe that remedies should be customized based on the patient’s physical and mental characteristics.

Therefore, if an individual is short-tempered and impatient, apis mellifica may be useful, especially if the symptoms mentioned above concern feelings of pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Pros & Cons

4) Synaptol: Pros and Cons

  • The producer offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee
  • It does not contain stimulants
  • It does not have side effects often seen with other ADD/ADHD medication
  • Undisclosed doses per ingredient
Side Effects

5) Synaptol Side Effects

There’s this rare thing among homeopaths called homeopathic aggravation, or when the symptoms worsen upon intake. They take this as a good sign that the remedy is working.

However, they recommend halving your dose until symptoms abate.


6) Synaptol Product Warnings

Homeopathy is still a controversial topic, so err on the side of caution.

Where to Buy?

7) Where to Buy Synaptol?

You can buy Synaptol from the official Hello Life website or through various online supplement stores.


8) Synaptol Price

A bottle of Synaptol (30 day supply) costs $19.95. If you buy two or more, you get 10% off.

How To Take

9) How to Take Synaptol

The daily intake recommended is 1 ml twice per day if the patient weighs more than 50 lbs, and 0.5 ml twice per day if they weigh 30-50 lbs.

The manufacturer advises that you take one dose in the morning and the second one in the evening.

Final Thoughts

10) Final Thoughts on Synaptol

It’s difficult to assess whether Synaptol works for ADHD and similar disorders because it relies on homeopathy, a controversial topic in the health and medical community.

As with everything, only take Synaptol if you have your doctor’s permission to do so, especially if you’re taking medications that may have unfortunate interactions with the remedy’s ingredients.

I have 5 yr old twins and they are so hyper. Although both I and my husband noticed they became a bit calmer after we started giving them Synaptol that was about it. It was nothing too drastic.


I ordered Synaptol for my 9 yrs old. While before he was distracted by the slightest noise, now his grades went up from C and below to B+. We’ve been giving him this product for three months now and I am going to order some more. I am so relieved!

i just started this on my daughter that has been diagnosed with adhd and i have seen a dramatic change in her focus and studies. Definitely recommend this product to anyone!


I’m 52 yrs old and found this product a few years back. It’s nothing short of a miracle for me. When I take Synaptol I feel normal. I can think and create and get projects finished. Something I’ve had trouble doing my whole life, which made me feel like a loser. And I was always judged by others for starting but never finishing things I’d started. My head is clear and I feel good. It’s safe and has no side effects. I don’t even need a full eyedropper to feel good. I’ve also been using Homeopathic remedies since I was 30. I would highly recommend this to anyone, specially parents whose children are on dangerous pharmaceuticals. Drugs are not the answer. Diet change also helps.

This article is bogus and misleading. There is no official designation such as as “FDA
A certified. There is FDA Approved but not certified.

Iulian (Editor)

Synaptol used to be advertised as “FDA Certified.” However, recently, the company has changed that claim to “FDA Certified Ingredients.” Technically, Hello Life claims that all the ingredients used in this formula are from a homeopathic compendium that FDA recognizes (HPUS). It doesn’t mean the FDA approved these ingredients as safe, it only means that the FDA accepts them as homeopathic, which doesn’t mean much.

FDA procedures and certifications are quite complex.

-FDA Approved – only available for synthetic drugs and prescription medication;
-FDA Certified – applies to manufacturing facilities (foods and food-grade products);
-FDA Recognized – usually refers to class 2 medical equipment;
-FDA Registered – standard marketing practice; it shows that the manufacturing company has notified the FDA regarding a new dietary supplement.

Regardless of the terminology, it is a moot point as the FDA doesn’t regulate dietary supplements. We hope that clears up some confusion you might have had.

To Z Cole…I’m so glad to have a psychiatrists view and I think you being interested in natural medicine is something more psychiatrists should be interested in. I believe theres a true correlation that some patients need and do well with certain homeopathic remedies and some need others. My daughter, now 18, diagnosed in Sept 16 with ADHD, has gone through 4 difrerent ADHD meds with no success whatsoever. In between trying those meds, we tried several homeo remedies. She responded very well to Synaptol, noticing a difference almost immediately. She also did well with the supplement Brain Boost. Those 2 together got her through her Senior year of high school and is now heading to college. They of course are not as effective as some meds, but having a daughter drugged, with heart palpitations, in zombie like state, a ball of nerves and panicky, is not exactly what I call effedtive medicine. At least there are no side effects with these supplements and it helps her get by.

your review is very helpful and encouraging. My 16 years old Son was recently diagnosed with ADHD. I am looking for alternative therapy with no side effects. Just want to understand about whether you gave both synaptol and brain boost together every day? please help answer this question

It's working for us

Told by Doctor this would not work. Tried it anyway on my 12 now 13 year old child. Went from struggling with 6th grade to super student in 7th. Now she is more confident, honors student and play 2nd chair flute in the band. Don’t know for sure but it seems to work for her and we are on our 3 shipment.


Does she take 1 tablet twice a day like instructed? Just wondering for my own 13 year old.

This is “woo” medicine. It is based on the principal that “Less is More” and the delusion that “water has memory” WHen homeopathy was introduced man didn’t have the medical sciences we have today. This product may have one molecule of whatever the active ingredient is. The balance is just water!!


DO NOT USE SYNAPTOL. I never write reviews however, I do not want others to get scammed like I did. They are praying on parents who are at their wits end and will try anything to help their children, They are selling “snake oil” I bought it tried for 3 months and it nothing! Got a call from the school saying my son was even more distracted and less focussed. When I called customer service they said well sorry it didnt work its not for everyone and we cant help you. no refund on their horrible product so I am now stuck with 3 unopened bottles. Their solution give it to a friend who may need it. Werent they listnening IT DOESNT WORK!!! Please do not buy this.

I had the same experience

Reply to  Mindy

I used it and I noticed a calming effect on my normal racing brain. Had a friend try also and had positive feelings gave more energy but very subtle. I would recommend this product as there are no side effects


Vivance is a better option


I believe it is working for me, being a 42 year old male. I’ve tried nearly everything from straterra and adderall to the homeopathics and nootropics like piracetam and focusfactor with little success. I’m not going to say its such a phenomenal difference taking it, but I do believe it is working to the extent that when I need to really bare down to focus and concentrate it makes it easier. The ability to hold a thought and shape it, and evaluate it at different angles is what I really desire since my job is a software engineer. I think it does work me, but like so many other alternatives, it depends on the person. If nothing else has worked, why not give it a try.

Hi, I am wondering, as an adult, how much do you take daily? I have the dissolvable tablets, but it says 50 lbs and up 1 tablet. Do you find one is enough twice a day? Thank you in advance!


This stuff is ineffective. It does not work. I have been on it for 30 days, taking it, on average, twice a day like it says on the label. It is a waste of money.


I am considering trying this for my 13 ear old son. We reluctantly tried medication and while it did help him with school work he had so many negative side effects we had to take him off. the fact that he hated the way it made him feel and that he is a cardiac patient also made it very difficult to give him the traditional medication too. My issue id that being a Cardiac patient I always check with his Cardiologist before trying anything and I am quite sure there have been no studies for his particular subgroup. How can I know that it is safe for him?

Hello L Hughes –
I was wondering how your son was doing? Have you tried Synaptol and taken your son off of Concerta? I am curious because my 9 yr old has ADHD and we had the same issue you did with concerta regaring the anger. We have also tried aderal and straterra. I would love to hear if your son is doing well on Synaptol. Thanks and take care.

As a psychiatrist interested in natural medicine, looks more like an immune system stabilizer; if it works, it’s probably for those who have some kind of occult inflammatory process going on(possibly gut allergy?) that may affect neurons and stresses the endocrine system etc etc which has further inhibitory effects on higher cortical function. Given how frequently this is a promotor or symptoms rarely recognized by allopaths, seems like a reasonable thing to try.

We are thinking of trying this product for our 14 yr old son. He has trouble in school with focus and attention,and acting out(figiting n the like). I’ve read some of the reviews and can identify with almost all, especially the,”LOOK..A SQUIRREL!!” analogy. So many things going through one mind at one time? We need something to help with the “Follow Through”…. of thought and work. Still reserching with added renew of hope in this product.
