My 4 year old was diagnosed with ADHD about 1 year ago, and her doctor of course told me to think about trying out different medications so when it came time for her to go to school she would be ready. Living with ADHD and trying different medications my whole life with myself I knew what effects they really had on people and how they made me felt, I couldnt imagine putting one of my babies threw that unless I absolutly HAD to. So I started doing some research and I came across a company by the name of Advocare. Advocare is a premiere health and welness company that just celebrated their 20th anniversary. After digging deeper I found a article on a study that Texas Tech University had done on children with ADHD and Spark (sugar-free energy drink) that is suitable for children. After reading I ordered products for myself, and after falling in love with them I allowed Bailey to try them. Within a couple days of her drinking a Spark in the morning her teachers were asking me what I was doing, and what ever it was, it was working.

For anyone who would like a copy of this article please dont hesistate to email message me! I am now a distributor for Advocare and would be more than willing to help anyone out!

Thanks :)

Hi, my name is Virginia and my 7 year old was diagnosed with ADHD last year. I also have not medicated him based on what other people have told me and what I have read about the side effects. But, lately his hyper-ness and inability to focus have gotten worse. I am always asking parents for advice but kept getting the same responses; "he probably needs meds" or "He'll grow out of it". I felt so helpless and I didn't want to just sit back and watch my sons behavior decline. So, I finally asked my husband to get involved and ask some of his co-workers, who are teachers, if they have kids of their own who have ADHD, and if so, how do they help them. He asked one teacher and she recommended Spark Energy Drink which she gives to her 12 year old. I started to research it and came across Texas Techs research and other testimonials and I am convinced I want to try it. I just have a few questions:
1. You said you give it to your 4 year old, is there Spark for kids under 12? I noticed recommended age is 12 and up. If not, how much do you give her?
2. Have you seen any side effects in her?
3. Where can we buy Spark?

I just started my 12 year old son on Advocare Spark. I am truly hoping to see the same effects as what the Ritalin was doing for him. I have hated using ADHD meds on my baby.

Can you please email a copy of the article to me, syndilu3@yahoo.com. I am very interested in alternative treatments. Avoiding meds is the route we wish to take if all possible.

I have been searching for that article and cannot find it. Would you please email me the article at acogdill09@gmail.com? I appreciate it.

This is news to me as I am an Advocare Distributor and I haven't heard of this until I recently started researching alternative treatment for ADD. Our 10 year old daughter was tested, by a child psychologist, for ADD last year and the results were "below the line" to consider her a child with Attention Disorder.

This year, due to academic and home struggles, we requested that the school do additional testing and we received the results yesterday. She has several traits/characteristics of ADD, but not enough to be considered for "special" services, but there is another way to communicate with different teachers about her learning style and certain things that they can do to help her. Either way, we are running out of options and need to try something to help her be able to stay focused.

We have an appointment scheduled with her pediatrician in a couple of weeks. I would like to bring a copy of this study to the appointment to see if it would be okay to try that before meds. Another product, IntelliQ, is what I like to take with my Spark to help me stay focused and mentally strong. I would like to see if my daughter can take that as well.

I have a very dear friend that struggles with A.D.D. and has recently been taking her medicine with coffee... my AdvoCare consultant gave her son Spark and he too struggles with A.D.D, so I dug dipper into research to help my friend. This is a really good and helpful way, thanks so much!

Is it safe for a 5 year old to drink? I noticed that the product has an age of 12 years and up on it. My email address is magana_maritza@yahoo.com. Thank you!
