Thinkwell Absorbamax Formulation Tackles ADHD

Do you or your child have trouble concentrating? Does your memory seem to be letting you down more and more? Are your energy levels less than ideal? Thinkwell Absorbamax, provides highly concentrated doses of the essential fats Omega 3 and 6 which support mental alertness, concentration and increase energy levels. Thinkwell’s 50/6 marine fish oil formula delivers an unprecedented 50% EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid); the Omega 3 proven to have dramatic benefits in children suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and dyspraxia.

Anton Lawrenz, pharmacist by trade and developer of Thinkwell Absorbamax, says, “It is increasingly being recognised that essential fatty acids (EFA’s), which are not produced by the human body, are not obtained by the modern diet in sufficient doses. Research suggests that inadequate intake of EFA’s results in impaired concentration, fatigue and poor mental performance in adults. This results in a very similar condition to ADHD in children. Researchers suggest that ADHD children may be deficient in essential fatty acids because they absorb them poorly.”

Why is Thinkwell Absorbamax different to other Omega 3 and 6 products? Lawrenz believes that it is the use of lecithin that provides the difference in Thinkwell Absorbamax’s efficacy, coupled with the use of the best available fish oil, which provides a higher EPA concentration than any other product available in South Africa. He explains, “Having done comprehensive research on the subject, I concluded that lecithin has a vital role to play in how well the body absorbs a supplement, thanks to its unique emulsifying properties that aid the body in breaking down a product into tiny globules that are more easily metabolised and absorbed. Lecithin is used in the production of acetylcholine, a ‘mind and memory’ neurotransmitter. When choline levels fall too low (choline is a nutrient that is essential for cardiovascular and brain function and for cellular membrane composition and repair), the body synthesises acetylcholine at the expense of building nerve cells. Boosting choline is therefore essential for maintaining a healthy nervous system. The lecithin is also supplied in a blended state, thereby ensuring maximum absorption of all of the ingredients and therefore maximum benefit.”

Gelatine-free Thinkwell Absorbamax vegicaps are available in packs of 90 or 180 from pharmacies or health shops. Thinkwell Absorbamax is tested for stability and purity by Cardinal Health in the UK. It is manufactured and packed in a pharmaceutical grade factory, using GMP (good manufacturing practice) procedures. It is registered with the Medicines Control Council in South Africa and listed with the Australian TGA. Thinkwell Absorbamax is not tested on animals.
