About Focus Formulations Products

Many children and adults with autism suffer from a spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders that impair social communication, and are often accompanied by the lack of focus, presence of repetitive behaviors, restrictive interests and disrupted sleep. Studies suggests that these symptoms are often associated with dysregulation in the autonomic nervous system[1].

A gentle, natural treatment is now available to help balance two parts of the autonomic nervous system – the sympathetic nervous system "fight or flight" and the parasympathetic nervous system "rest and digest". Typically, sympathetic nervous activity rises during the day allowing us to work, learn and stay focused. As night approaches, parasympathetic activity rises allowing our bodies to prepare for rest and restorative activity. An imbalance between these two systems often presents as an inability to concentrate and focus during the day and an inability to obtain restful sleep at night. Severe disruption can even lead to angry outbursts, severe anxiety and mood swings.

Focus Formulations products provide the necessary neurotransmitter precursors that support a healthy maintenance of the autonomic nervous system allowing for improved focus and concentration during the day and restful sleep at night.

Ingredients and Their Functions

Choline bitartrate

a precursor to acetylcholine a neurotransmitter that controls memory and several cognitive processes.

Theobromine

possesses anti-oxidant properties and has several beneficial actions on the brain including stimulation in areas of the brain involved in learning and memory.

L-Glutamic Acid

major neurotransmitter that provides fuel for the brain and stimulates mental alertness and improved memory function.

N-Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL

an essential amino acid that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and produce neurotransmitters that moderate cognitive functions.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

potent anti-oxidant that works in conjunction with N-acetyl L-carnitine to supplement healthy brain function.

Magnesium

a calming mineral that helps to decrease cortisol. Increased cortisol levels can result in anxiety and restlessness.

GABA

a neuro-inhibitory transmitter which naturally calms nervous activity.

Valerian Root

an herb that is generally recognized as safe (GRAS). Helps the body to use GABA more effectively and helps to regulate nerve cells.

5 HTP

precursor to serotonin. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, mood and anxiety.
