Efalex is a natural product. It is a patented combination of Efamol Evening Primrose Oil, Fish Oil (tuna), Thyme Oil and Vitamin E (as a natural antioxidant).
Efalex provides the key Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) which are needed to maintain proper brain and visual function and co-ordination. It is a research based nutritional supplement to help combat some of the problems associated with learning disabilities and behavioural disorders. Efalex has been formulated to help eye and brain function. Studies show that certain EFAs have a critical role in that they are vital for optimal development and function of the cells of the retina in the eye and the brain.
The difficulties experienced by those with learning difficulties, in processing what their eyes and ears take in, has long been recognised. Efalex is the first supplement of its type to provide a natural and non habit-forming method of treatment to help maintain brain function and co-ordination.
Striking results from a major ongoing research programe on Dyslexia (DL), Dyspraxia (DP), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) show that EFA nutrition in Efalex can make a child less clumsy and more able to catch a ball within twelve weeks. These conditions are closely associated. Some children have only one of these disorders but many have two or three leading to problems which are extremely distressing both for the child and parents. Such problems often lead to school failure and disruptive behaviour.
