Does Synaptol Work as a Natural Treatment for ADHD?

Natural treatment for ADHD  Synaptol™ by HelloLife™ is a homeopathic all natural treatment for ADHD designed to improve concentration and attention span. But is Synaptol a good alternative to ADD / ADHD stimulant medications such as Ritalin, Focalin, or Strattera?

Based on the actual user comments below, it may be worth a try as a natural treatment for adult ADHD or childhood ADHD.

I don't have ADD/ADHD, but the disorder concerns me. People who cannot concentrate have trouble learning new information and recalling what they've already learned. It is certainly true that you cannot understand or remember what wasn't recorded in your brain in the first place.

Ritalin and the other stimulant medications have bad side effects including insomnia, upset stomach, headaches, dizziness, mood changes, increased heart rate, and even drug dependence. The parents of children with ADD/ADHD (as well as adult sufferers) could use something that relieves the symptoms without harsh side effects.

Note: If you have already decided on Synaptol but have questions, you might find it helpful to speak to a HelloLife representative.

Herbal supplements and other types of "natural" adhd medicine comes to mind. The problem with natural products is that you never know who to believe. Every website, salesperson, and manufacturer will tell you their own product is wonderful.

Actual User Comments

Here is a strategy I use when I want to know whether a product really works:  I perform a search of forums and blog posts, looking for actual user comments.

I realize that I'm not the only one who does this. But you have to be careful - there are salespeople posing as users who really aren't users. Sometimes it's obvious, like when they say, "... XYZ product is the greatest product ever created as a natural treatment for ADHD [or insert other condition here]!!" followed by an affiliate link. Other salespeople are more subtle and you can be fooled.

So what real comments did I find about Synaptol? Did most users find Synaptol to be effective as a natural treatment for ADHD?

  • Bad experiences.  I found comments from two users who complained that Synaptol caused an upset stomach. Several others had no problems but said Synaptol did not seem to improve their ADD/ADHD or concentration.
  • Skeptical.  I found quite a few comments from people who have not tried it but were skeptical (not surprising).
  • Good experiences.  I found several positive comments that in my opinion seemed to be from actual customers - real people who either have ADD/ADHD or have children with ADD/ADHD.

Below is a sample of the positive customer feedback I found. These are the people who found that, as a natural treatment for ADHD, Synaptol did work:

"I have been on Synaptol for 5 months now combined with a diet of natural foods... I've improved like 4x better than what I was."
Portion of actual user review on Forum

"I have a 9 year old son who has been on it for about a month now ... it does seem to be starting to work... he does seem to be calming down and is more tolerable to be with."
Portion of actual user review on Forum

"My son is 12 and has been on synaptol for 2 weeks now, and I have to say that this product is remarkable... he was put on ritalin at age 6 and two years ago took him off because of side effects. Now he is doing so well.... "
Portion of actual user review on Forum

"My 10 year old son has ADHD... We are now experimenting with Synaptol... It has been just a week and already we are seeing signs of improvement."
Portion of actual user review on Caring Mommy Blog (

"... my husband grew up with ADHD, and still has very strong symptoms... Synaptol is truly an answer to our prayers. He is sleeping better than in years, eating more, and is able to focus his attention better than me!"
Portion of actual user review on Forum

"I'm a 25 year old male with problems focusing and getting to sleep because my mind does not shut off. I found Synaptol a month ago, and I have to say it is great.... now I'm not thinking about 10 different things at once and can focus on what I need to get done."
Portion of actual user review on Forum

"I first noticed a change in him after about 4 days and he just keeps getting better... even his teachers have noticed a difference in him as has have his dad and older brothers..."
Portion of actual user review on Forum

The manufacturer, HelloLife, specifically advertises Synaptol as a homeopathic natural treatment for ADHD. The list of benefits on their sales page includes:

  • Safely and quickly relieves ADD / ADHD symptoms including hyperactivity, inattentiveness, poor concentration, and difficulty reading and writing.

  • Balances energy levels and provides therapeutic support for optimal overall health and vitality.

  • Provides fast, all-natural ADD / ADHD symptom relief with no negative side effects.

The user comments I found were from parents and sufferers who had purchased Synaptol to combat ADHD. These comments represent first-hand experience using it themselves as a treatment for adult ADHD or to combat their child's symptoms.

Finding those positive comments was encouraging. Next I did some background research on the manufacturer.

Return Policy

If you're still not sure whether you can trust the effectiveness of Synaptol as a natural treatment for ADHD, the HelloLife return policy might put your mind at ease.

Here is their product guarantee in a nutshell: 60-day money back guarantee on up to two bottles of opened product or any number of unopened products still in their factory-sealed containers, minus a 20% restocking fee. Shipping and handling are not refunded.

You have 60 days from when your product was shipped to return it for a refund. We do not process returns or refunds past this 60 day period. All returns are charged a restocking fee. This fee will be 20% of the total product purchase price. We do not refund the cost of shipping or handling.

So you can get most of your money back if you don't like the product, or if as a natural treatment for ADHD it doesn't seem to work for you or your child. They do ask that you try Synaptol for 30 days first (reasonable). If you don't try it for at least a few weeks, you won't really know whether or not it worked!

That's the story. I'll leave it up to you to weigh the pros and cons. If you're fed up with the bad side effects of the stimulant ADHD medicines, Synaptol might be worth a try.
