"ZooMind" is an alternative to "Vayarin" and "Zoom teva" which has been discontinued.
"ZooMind" is a new, safe, natural, dietary supplement that supports the treatment of ADHD by utilizing compounds that are familiar to the body.
Each capsule contains omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), L-tyrosine and phosphatidylserine in the following proportions:
- L-Tyrosine: 250 mg
- Phosphatidylserine: 75 mg
- Omega-3: 5 mg
L-Tyrosine is a precursor to dopamine and some other neurotransmitters that are involved in the regulation of attention and mood. Evidence suggests that supplementation with L-tyrosine may enhance cognitive performance and attention in stressful or demanding situations.
Phosphatidylserine is a structural component of brain cells (neurons) that can help enhance communication. It is required to produce neurotransmitters such as dopamine, which is involved in learning, memory, and mood. Dopamine deficiency is believed to be one of the primary triggers for ADHD.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) – particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – are essential omega-3 fatty acids. Deficiencies in omega-3 fatty acids are often observed in children with ADHD. Some studies suggest that omega-3 supplementation may positively impact ADHD symptoms, such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

"ZooMind" comes in capsule form.
Dosage: Recommended dose is two capsules daily with food.
If the daily dose has not been taken, the missing dose can be supplemented the next day (up to a daily dose of 4 capsules).
