Seaweed and behavioural conditions in children

Seagreens may have a role to play in the management of ADHD and hyperactivity in children. 2 food capsules or 1g of food granules was found to significantly help behaviour. Not only does Seagreens ensure the child has a broad range of nutrients in their diet but also, Seagreens contain glyco-muco-polysaccharides (long unbranched polysaccharides which form an important component of connective tissue especially near joints).

Seagreens can be used to aid the withdrawal from drugs such as Ritalin. Many parents dislike the effect Ritalin has on their child but find it difficult to manage their child’s behaviour without it. Seagreens products are completely natural with nothing added or taken away. They are milled at the point of harvest on the coast of the Outer Hebrides.

Increasing the daily dose from 2 capsules to 4 or increasing the food granules to 2 teaspoons (1/2 a gram) before, during and after the withdrawal from Ritalin can help the child come off Ritalin and stabilise behaviour. In some cases, it may be beneficial to keep the dosage at the higher level for 3-4 weeks after the withdrawal. Depending upon the severity of the child and the age, a higher dose may be required. Some children may be able to return to the 2 capsules a day or 1 teaspoon of the granules but each child is different. Seagreens is endorsed by the UK Hyperactive Children’s Support Group.
