Attend is marketed as a homeopathic product with multiple benefits on brain cognitive functions, mood, and stress-related disorders. The manufacturer claims Attend supports focus and concentration and promotes mental alertness and a healthy brain.
Also, the supplement aids in achieving and maintaining a balanced mood, especially during stressful periods (characterized by nervousness, frustration or hyperactivity). Last but not least, the product promises to help maintain proper information processing, understanding, and retrieval.
The product is suited for both children and adults of all ages. According to the manufacturer, the product has no side effects, it is non-toxic and contains no stimulants. Moreover, it is gluten-free, which decreases the risks of allergic reactions. Moreover, the manufacturer claims that the supplement will not cause drowsiness.
Vaxa, the manufacturing company, was established in 1987 and currently markets homeopathic remedies and various dietary supplements designed to promote optimal health and well-being.

Attend is a mixture of over 50 ingredients, including vitamins, herbal extracts, minerals and other types of nutrients and chemicals. The most common ingredients that are easily recognizable and to some extent scientifically researched are Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidylserine, L-Tyrosine, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Avena Sativa, and Valerian. Other ingredients, however, are unknown to us and there is little information available on them.
A large number of ingredients does not necessarily mean the product is effective. In the absence of actual evidence to prove its effectiveness, this large number of ingredients is a disadvantage and requires precaution. The brain and body are bombarded with a collection of vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, amino acids and other substances in a combination that wasn’t tested for safety.
However, consumer reviews have reported some positive effects (improved mood, better concentration, a useful remedy for ADHD related symptoms, etc). The initial dosage is 3 capsules taken twice a day for 30-45 days or as directed by a physician. The recommended dosage for maintenance is 2 to 4 capsules a day.
- Vaxa is a successful international company, well established on the homeopathic drug market;

- Large number of ingredients, some of which were not tested or researched;
- The formula is non-FDA approved;
- The manufacturer brings no evidence to support their claims.
Attend may at first convince you of its potential effectiveness by throwing in a long list of potential benefits and an even longer list of ingredients (around 90 ingredients). However, our readers should be aware that the combination of Attend is not researched and no evidence of its effectiveness exists. There is, however, a significant number of positive consumer reviews which confirm some of the benefits claimed by the manufacturer. Also, the company offers a 1-year money back guarantee which entitles the buyer to a full refund (less shipping and handling fees).
Still, it is our belief that an accurate diagnosis and an accurate health evaluation are essential steps towards achieving the desired results. All the more so since some of the ingredients (vitamins, amino acids, minerals, etc.) play an essential role in the optimal functioning of the body and imbalances may be harmful. We, therefore, recommend that medical advice is sought prior to starting treatment.
