As many as 9 million people have been diagnosed with ADHD. While the disorder is typically associated with children, the more that scientists study and understand it, the more apparent it is that ADHD is a lifelong condition.
There’s a lot of misunderstanding surrounding ADHD. Questions about overdiagnosis, misdiagnoses, and whether ADHD has increased over time or is simply finally being recognized are on the forefront of the mind for doctors, researchers, and scientists studying the condition.
But none of those questions really help the millions of children and adults who are suffering. For those people, the answer has long been “medicate or deal with it.”
Some scientists, though, believe that’s not a fair solution. They have long thought that there could be another answer, an answer that provides support for ADHD in a different way: through the use of OPCs.
What are OPCs and How Can They Help?
OPCs are super antioxidants found in nature that work together to heal the body from free radical damage, helping our body to combat diseases and ease the symptoms of others.
Researchers have been studying the potential uses of OPCs since their discovery in the 1700s. But could these natural antioxidants actually hold an answer for ADHD support?
Many scientists say the answer is yes!
Oxidative Stress and ADHD
While the true cause of ADHD remains unknown, there has long been a theory that oxidative stress could trigger ADHD symptoms. (Oxidative stress is when free radicals in the body attempt to search for stability, damaging healthy cells in the body along the way.)
One of the best ways to fight oxidative stress is through antioxidants, particularly OPCs.
Many studies have linked oxidative stress to ADHD. In 2013, a meta analysis of existing studies was conducted to verify the idea. The study found that there was a clear correlation between them.
It stands to reason that if oxidative stress can cause ADHD symptoms, and if OPCs can be used to battle oxidative stress and heal the body, then OPCs could also be used to alleviate ADHD symptoms.
A Scientific Look at OPCs and ADHD
The first major study to look at the relationship between OPCs and ADHD took place in 1998. In that study, OPCs helped improve focus and attention as much as traditional medication!
Further studies in 2006 confirmed both the link between oxidative stress and ADHD, and the fact that OPCs eased that oxidative stress and reduced damage to DNA in people with ADHD.
In the last few years, studies have continued to show the link between antioxidants and an ease of symptoms of ADHD.
So...What Does this Mean?
At the very least, it means that people who suffer from ADHD might have more options. For some people, that might look like an alternative to medication. For others, it could be a supplement to an existing medical plan.
It could well mean a complete change to ADHD support in the future!
What we do know is that science is consistently proving that OPCs offer relief for those suffering from free radical damage!
This is where OPCXtra comes in. It’s a combination of 6 powerful OPCs that work together to multiply each other’s effects and give your body the best combination so that it can start fighting off the effects of oxidative stress!
