ADHD is a chronic condition that is usually identified in childhood. However, many people find out about it once they’ve already reached adulthood.  Either way, ADHD makes a mark over the course of many years. If ADHD is not controlled, it can lead to serious problems in personal relationships and the workplace.

With that said, the fact is that ADHD can also bring many gifts with it if the condition is managed appropriately. In people with ADHD, there sometimes seem to be two different motors working simultaneously. On the one hand, ADHD can give you what is called “hyperfocus.”  This may come across to a supervisor or co-workers as selective concentration or refusing to focus when you don’t feel like doing a particular task, but when harnessed to your advantage, the ability to dive deep into a subject or task is one of those ADHD “superpowers.”

At VAYA™, we believe the optimal management of adult ADHD requires an integrated health care approach, including medicines, behavioral therapy and balanced nutrition. Vayarin® Plus helps to manage the lipid imbalances known to be present in adult ADHD and can improve attention, emotional regulation and task monitoring, which is the ability to keep track of obligations and identify and correct mistakes.

Vayarin® (for children) and Vayarin® Plus (for adults and adolescents) are medical foods containing EPA-enriched PS-Omega-3 that is specially formulated with nutritional ingredients that are naturally sourced and have virtually no difference in side effects when compared to placebo. Although individual results may vary, give Vayarin® 30-90 days and Vayarin® Plus 30-60 days for the healthy lipids to reach optimal levels.  Once they have reached their optimal level both products provide 24/7 coverageunlike many stimulants which can wear off after each dose. Talk to your healthcare provider about Vayarin® or Vayarin® Plus today. 

The bottom line is that ADHD is quite a complex condition and striking the balance between creativity and reliability is a sure step to success at work and at home for adults living with it.
