*** Testimonials on ADD - ADHD
=============================================================================== ADD On the subject of Attention Deficit Disorder, two of my children have this problem. My adult daughter has always complained about feeling detached and like she has a lot of difficulty staying focused on what people are saying ™ – also remembering things. When she started taking OPC-3 , she was amazed. She says that the cloud lifted from her brain and she felt like she could think clearly for the first time. My son, who is now 14 years old, has always had learning problems, difficulty paying attention, difficulty following directions, lost his temper very easily, and while he isn’t a classic hyperactive type, he does have some unusual behavior patterns. When we ™ ™ found out that OPC-3 could help with this, we immediately had him start taking it. Before OPC-3 , he had made little progress in his school work for the entire year before, and we weren’t sure what to do with him. In the ™ year after he started taking OPC-3 , he advanced five grade levels in his reading skills, and two grade levels in ™ math. He says that OPC-3 helps him think, and concentration is much easier. He also calmed down some and is in much better control of the rages that he used to have. Another nice little side benefit; he used to get ™ every virus that came along – it seemed that he was always sick. As soon as he started on OPC-3 , he was the healthiest one in the house, and with six children, that’s saying a lot. Gail Weekly Roseburg, OR =============================================================================== ADD/ADHD We have a son that was taking 20 mg of Ritalin a day, and that was barely getting him through the day. We took ™ him off Ritalin all together and he takes 2 capfuls of OPC-3 in the morning, about 15 minutes before he eats, and that gets him through the whole school day. There really is no set dose that will work on everyone, they all seem to react just a little differently. You will have to try a dosage and see how it works. We tried it on a nonschool day so we could see his behavior, and we got it on the first shot. Charles and Denise =============================================================================== ADD My son was diagnosed with ADD in 6 grade. He was put on Ritalin and had been on it for almost a year. He too started having the Ritalin side effects after about 8 months on meds, including mood swings when the meds ™ wore off. A friend told me about OPC-3 . I started him on it but didn’t notice a difference until about 2½ to 3 months in. Then I dropped his morning dose of Ritalin. No one at school noticed a difference without his meds. We noticed a difference in mood. When school ended last year, I stopped all meds, & replaced them with: 2 ™ caps of OPC-3 & 1 cap B-12 After a recent seminar by a doctor, I’ve added 1 cap of Calcium daily (mainly for the magnesium) and Vitamin C. He is now 13 and is completely off Ritalin. He still complains about drinking his Isotonix , but he does it out of force of habit. I made sure of it! Kids will fight anything new. Don’t let your customer give up because her son ® doesn’t like the taste. I did start out mixing his Isotonix with ½ water & ½ apple juice. Some concerns to share with your customer: Schools almost make it fun to be on meds at schools – my son got to leave class early to go to the office to get his Ritalin before lunch. Some kids, including my son, thought that was “cool”. I did not want my son entering high school on any medication. It just opens the door to the ease of taking other “drugs” – I know that sounds a bit crazy, but ADD & ADHD kids are much more impulsive/compulsive and therefore more susceptible to addictions (a documented fact). There are still concerns about long term effects of Ritalin type drugs. I saw side effects within 6-8 months. Good Luck Ginnie Esary Corvallis OR

=============================================================================== ADD I have twins who are 17 and weigh around 95 lbs. They have ADD, and they were put on Rydalin years ago and ™ I didn't like the way the Rydalin made them act so I decided to try the OPC-3 . They take two capfuls a day and ™ are doing great. They will tell anyone that with the OPC-3 they find they can pay attention more and retain what they are learning. They have also told me that when they read a book it is easier because they can remember ™ what they have read and don't have to read it over and over. I as a parent thank God for OPC-3 . Because of my success with this product I have shared it with many of my friends who have children with the same problem and all are doing great. I also have a customer whose son has ADHD and although he has recently started using ™ the OPC-3 she has told me there is a difference in him and will continue to use the product. She gave a big hug and thanked me for giving her son back!!! He is 10 and weighs around 80 lbs. Terri Bailey West VA =============================================================================== ADD One of my customers has a 4-year-old with ADD and has had tremendous results with OPC-3 and Calcium Plus. His psychiatrist has been very impressed with the improvement in his temperament and ability to cope with stress and emotions. He has actually been able to stop and think things through rather than “acting-out” all of his feelings. The psychiatrist was very impressed with the results of this non-drug therapy and recommended that his mother continue with what she has been doing. His daycare provider has seen significant changes in his ability to get along with the other children and respecting others’ feelings and rights. I know this isn’t very technical, but every little bit helps. He has only been on the product for a month. Shila Fisher Portland, OR =============================================================================== ADHD I had such a child – actually fraternal twins. One took 2 caps for a week and then dropped to 1 cap with a noticeable change in personality with the first week. Same age and approximate weight as your child. Now the ™ other twin is taking OPC-3 as well as the father! They buy 3 bottles a month and feel great. Go for it and be not afraid. Darilyn Dolimpio Carlisle, PA =============================================================================== ADHD My sister's son had a severe case of ADHD and was on prescription meds for three years and the problem worsened. She started intense research into the natural alternatives and she removed all sugar products from ™ ® Lance's diet and started him on OPC-3 and Mineral Blast . He went from a “C” and “D” student to an “A” and “B” student in about 3 months. She was able to wean him completely off the meds that he was on in 6 months. I ™ ® would suggest your friend try 2 caps of OPC-3 and 1 cap of Mineral Blast and see what happens. Also the sugar needs to be removed from his diet. Strangely enough, my nephew can now eat some sugar without feeling the consequences, but he stayed off sugar for about 8 months. Marjie Shires =============================================================================== ADD My son, Daniel, has been diagnosed as ADD for 3 years. On Ritalin and Dexedrine, he had a difficult time with side effects. And it didn’t seem to help him that much. He would be crazy on withdrawal from the medication. While it helped somewhat in school, it caused him to be depressed and even talk about suicide. In short, things looked pretty bleak. A 10 year old that you love, talking about suicide, is quite alarming.

Last summer, I tried the OPC-3 with testing by the head of the school’s Special Ed department. First, I took him off all medication for 3 weeks. Then he was tested for several hours with a battery of tests. This was the ™ baseline test. Then I gave him the OPC-3 (2 capfuls daily) for 45 days. Then he was retested. In 6 out of 8 categories, he improved. In 2 of the 6, the improvement was over 3 years! These categories of improvement were related to listening and verbal skills. ADD children have difficulty in following instructions. This is where he improved the most. Mr. Sandusky, the ™ head of special Ed, said this OPC-3 has definitely helped my son. I am currently giving him OPC-3 and a small dose of Cylert, an ADD medication. He seems to be doing very ™ well and is now main-streamed to a regular class. He is almost never depressed. I know that the OPC-3 has helped his depression dramatically. Since I have been giving him OPC-3 , he is a different kid. Thanks so much for telling me about this stuff. If I can be of help, please feel free to call me or have anyone else call. Sincerely, Steven & Judy Horovitz Shamong, NJ =============================================================================== ADHD I am writing to share my experience with Isotonix B-12 and OPC-3 . My son, who is eight years old has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyper Disorder) and he is also an Asthmatic. He was taking 60 mg of Rydalin per day for ADHD and varied medicines as needed for his Asthma condition. It is difficult enough for me to take daily medication, but to have to give it to my 8 year old was frustrating. Our life was coordinated around medications. Our school and after school program had to keep up with the demands of one child’s meds. By the end of May, daily trips to school and calls from the after school program, due to my son’s behavior, had pretty much dictated an increase in his medication again. I had heard of the positive effects of B-12 and OPC-3 through my sponsor Mike Homer. I hoped this would be ™ the answer to my prayers. My son is now taking B-12 and OPC-3 on a daily basis and his Rydalin has been cut in HALF! His grades have improved 100% and I have not received one phone call from his teacher this ® school year. And as a bonus, he has not had a severe Asthma attack since he started on the Isotonix . Considering he has had 6 hospital stays in the last 3 years due to Asthma, I would say this is as close to a 100% success rate as one can hope for. Market America truly changed my life and the life of my family. Their products are a blessing and will remain an important part of our life forever. Sincerely, Maureen Jock =============================================================================== ADD My son started on product when he was 11 years old and starting 5 grade. He was diagnosed with ADD and auditory processing disorder. He had been on Ritalin since 2nd grade after trying Bio-Feedback Treatments and allergy testing. He weighed 60 pounds for 2 years and in 4th grade claimed he had NO FRIENDS! A friend introduced me to the products, so I started him on B-12 and Multi Tech (no children’s back then). I was a little ™ nervous about OPC-3 , my husband was a pharmacist and never heard of it. After watching the video and ™ getting into the business, we started him on one dose of OPC-3 in the evening and took his evening dose of Ritalin away. In the first couple of weeks the first things I noticed was he remembered his teachers name. Previously it would take 2-3 months for that to occur. Also, he became more organized in his room. Actually sorting his toys instead of dumping them into one box. He also gained 20 pounds as well as having friends in his classroom. (He still has some as friends to this day. He just turned 18 a couple of weeks ago.) He was on it for about 6 months before I noticed at one of my other son's events that he was actually sitting still in a chair!! I knew then that it was really working!

The next year he started middle school and did not want to have to go to the clinic to take Ritalin, so I ™ experimented. I gave 1 10 mg Ritalin in the morning as well as OPC-3 , B-12 and Multi Tech. No complaints ™ from teachers. Over Christmas break, I took him off the Ritalin all together and kept him on the OPC-3 and other supplements. He did great! He even went to our Middle School retreat at our church and was voted BEST CAMPER by his peers. So when school started again, I took him off all Ritalin. I was going to see if I received any calls from the school. No calls!. He of course was behind in his academics all these years and we had IEP (Individualized Education Plan). In 9th grade, we had to have testing done to re-qualify for services. In a meeting with the psychologist, I asked for comparison in progress compared to the previous 3 years. The psychologist had to go thru the thick file to find the numbers. His remark was truly honest because it was not prepared, "I never have seen a child make this much progress in three years in their disability area for the last 15 years I have been working with high school students"! Well, I guess you know I thanked God for leading me to these products and for being willing to take a risk on something new! Last year when VitaMind came out and we had such great news on this product, I decided to experiment again. ™ I took him off the B-12 and put him on 1 VitaMind a day. I had noticed several improvements in his academics. The good news is that this week I received notice of a standardized writing assessment that my son did in 11 grade. This is one of his major disability areas. Previously his scores have been 1 and 2, which is deficient and flawed, but this year he scored a 4 which is proficient!! I can't tell you how important it is to get kids like my son on these products and stay with it!! It not only helps them to be successful but also helps them to have great self-esteem because it helps them to fit and be aware of the people around them! The bottom line is if you can get your child thru school with great self-esteem, they can do anything in life! Evelyn Sain Knoxville, TN =============================================================================== ADHD I am an ADHD adult, diagnosed 4 years ago when I was 43 years old. I always knew there was something different with me, but never could put my finger on it. The irony is we adopted a son, now 22 years old, who is severely ADHD. My symptoms of ADHD include: inattentiveness and "spaciness," internal restlessness (sometimes expressed in anxiety), some impulsiveness, racing thoughts, mental exhaustion, some mood swings (particularly depression as the days grow shorter in the fall), inability to concentrate at times, impatience, easily bored, some organizational difficulties, some
™

difficulty with getting lost when driving, procrastination, and difficulty in reading. On the other hand, I have some of the great characteristics typical ADD people have, but that is another topic!! When I was first diagnosed, I decided to go the medication route under the care of a psychiatrist. That is the route we took with our son, even though he experienced numerous side effects. My first approach was Ritalin. Although I know Ritalin has been a godsend for some people, I did not stay with it more than 3 months because of the side effects I did not like. Then I took the Zoloft approach and that did not last more than 3 days because the side effects were so severe. Finally I settled on Desipramine, which I took for about 18 months until I decided that I did not want to live with some of the more subtle side effects for the rest of my life. So with my family doctor's agreement, I discontinued its use. What was unnerving, however, was the fact that my doctor did not know one of the side effects I was experiencing was common with that drug! Several months later, after re-experiencing all the challenging symptoms of my ADHD, I decided to try some "natural" remedies, i.e., St. John's Wort, Ginkgo Biloba and Ginseng, using typical discount store type products. I got minimal results. About six months ago I was introduced to Market America; I was, needless to say, very skeptical when my upline sponsor suggested that the nutritional products, such as OPC, might help. I would know if they did in fact help since I had experienced some real relief when I was on the prescription drugs. For example, I had never known what it was like to be focused and not feeling "restless" or "anxious" all the time until I had taken Ritalin or Desipramine. The first time I experienced what that was like I was in tears. I can now say that a combination of MA nutritional products have produced the same relief, but thank God, without the side effects! The OPC has helped with the mental exhaustion and in combination with the MultiTech

and at times B12, I do not experience the restlessness and anxiety. The racing thoughts are more easily controlled and therefore concentrated focus comes with greater ease. In addition, I can read better because I am more focused and more able to control the intrusion of other thoughts when I am reading. As a result, I do not have to work as hard to read and subsequently do not get mentally exhausted as quickly trying to get through what I am reading. Overall I do not dread the shortening of days since my energy level stays up. If I can be of further help or someone would like to talk to me personally, please do not hesitate to put us in contact. Guy Dunham York, PA =============================================================================== ADD/ADHD I would like to thank you for your wonderful Isotonix® products: OPC-3 and Antioxidant Formula. My eightyear-old son was on a medication called Ritalin. It scared me to death to see him taking this medication because he was like a zombie and the medicine comatosed him. I was told to try him on your two products, which I did. Since that time, he no longer is taking the Ritalin and his health has improved all the way around. Once again, thank you so much for such an excellent product. Ruth Thomas Big Flats, New York =============================================================================== ADD/ADHD I have a granddaughter (now 8) who had difficulties in school right from get go. It was very frustrating. She never got her assignments done. She seemed to be paying attention but it was like she was stuck trying to get anything done. No focus, and she wrote many of her letters and numbers backwards. We had just started in Market America when she started in 2nd grade. After a few weeks her teacher called her parents for a conference. She was very concerned regarding Paula's problem. Never, ever could she complete any assignments? Of course, Paula was never diagnosed with anything because we never thought it was anything except for her IQ and mental abilities. Every night at home it was torment for Paula and the parents to do the assignments until around 9 PM and then in despair giving answers so Paula could go to bed. I had been slowly learning about the products when one ™ day it hit me that Paula could have ADD or some form of it and maybe OPC-3 could help her. We started her ™ (at age 7 and her sister age 5) on one capful of OPC-3 every morning beginning on a Thursday. We had been too busy to notice that the following week there were no incomplete assignments, just homework, until the next Thursday when the spelling list came home. Paula came in and just read them off like it was nothing and she also had a note from the teacher regarding the great change. Now Paula has made the honor roll at the end of this semester and we couldn't be happier. If we had never made a dime in this business, the results Paula had would have been worth everything. We also give both girls the Multi-Tech and a couple times a week some Mineral Blast . I also heard that Calcium is very beneficial for ADD and ADHD. Hilda Pritchard Colorado Springs =============================================================================== ADD I just wanted to share a Christmas card I received from one of my Northern California neighbors. Her 12 year old daughter, Jennifer, has Attention Deficit Disorder and has always had difficulty paying attention in school and at home. She was making poor choices in friends and neglecting her school work. I introduced her to OPC-3 and suggested she have Jennifer try it last June. Jennifer’s mom noticed an immediate difference in her daughter’s attention span and attitude. She made new friends this school year and, as you will read, is doing great in school for the first time.

I can’t begin to convey how proud I am to represent Market America’s products and how much it means to be able to help people improve their lives just by sharing these products. Receiving this Christmas card was the best gift I could ask for – reinforcing my belief that Market America is helping me not only reach my financial goals, but fulfilling my goals of making a positive impact in others’ lives as well. Thank you for your commitment to excellence and just know that all of your continued hard work is impacting thousands of people’s lives everyday! Warmest regards, Andrea K. Porter Christmas Card Inside – “Andrea, Thank you so much for introducing me to OPC-3 . It has helped Jennifer stay on task at school. Last year she was getting C’s & D’s. This year she is getting mostly A’s and some B’s. She is enjoying school much better this year. Thanks again, Valerie.” =============================================================================== ADD At the age of 6, it was suggested to us that our son Riley might be ADD. His teachers were seeing behavior consistent with Attention Deficit Disorder, and while we wanted to deny the possibility, we knew he was overly active, had a hard time paying attention in class, showed extreme frustration, adapted poorly to change and was beginning to have severe mood swings. While we were going through the evaluation process with our pediatrician, I began to find out as much about ADD as possible, hoping to help Riley control his behavior without medication. We were extremely concerned about the effect of drugs such as Ritalin, but wanted to do what was necessary for Riley, and I shared my concerns with my good friends, Lori and Scott Carpenter. Scott introduced me to OPC-3 in a rather indirect way – he knew someone who knew someone else who had success with this product for individuals with ADD. He passed along various emails, and I eventually found a distributor who was able to give me first-hand experience with the effect of OPC-3 on her ADD teenager. I purchased bottles of OPC-3 and B-12, and Riley and I began taking it together, even before we got back his test results. I figured, it can't hurt us, and if it helps him, all the better. We began our loading dose during spring break, so he could have the advantage of a week without school. The first morning after receiving his OPC-3, Riley disappeared into his bedroom. After about 20 minutes, I peeked in to see what he was doing – and he was lying quietly on his bed, reading a book. I had never seen him do this before !!! Within that first week, I saw many signs of decreased activity, even though I was prepared not to see results for up to two months. By the time he got back to school 10 days later, he was a changed child. His teachers noticed the difference immediately. He was able to sit in circle time without fidgeting all over the room, could remain at his desk for paperwork and no longer displayed frustrated and angry behavior toward his classmates. Today, Riley is a great student in first grade. (His test results were negative, by the way.) He is still very active and full of energy, but is cognizant enough of his behavior that he will ask for his “vitamin drink” at times when he knows he is “losing it”, or when he is facing a tasking day at school. Not once have we heard from his teachers about his “hyper behavior” – in fact, quite the contrary. Riley is in the top reading group, and joins a second grade class for math activities. OPC-3 has made an extreme difference in our family life, and I have my happy son back. I believe so strongly in the power of this pink stuff that I became a distributor in hopes of sharing the product with others in need. Jenn Bishop Fairfield, CA =============================================================================== ADHD-Might-a-Mins-Saline My son is 7 as well and he takes 1 OPC, 2 Might-A-Mins and eliminates white sugar from diet. Works wonders. No more dark circles under the eyes and reduces anxiety and aggression. He has made some great art pictures too.
