How the S-100 Protein Affects Your Child's Ability to Focus, and What You Can Do About It

Parents of children who struggle with focus know all too well how difficult it is to navigate the complex web of scientific research, jargon and opinions. It’s challenging to stay up-to-date with all the information, much less understand how it can help your child. This is especially true for brain science.

If you have a child who suffers from focus challenges, then you need to pay attention to one very important group of proteins: the S-100 group.

It can be difficult for lay people to sift through the science around these proteins. The information that’s out there is generally very technical. Nonetheless, what’s become clear to researchers is that there are links between the S-100 proteins and how the brain regulates focus and attention. Researchers discovered that when certain S-100 proteins become overactive, the patient has a lowered ability to focus and a shortened attention span.

So, what exactly are S-100 proteins? Are they bad for you? What does it really mean if your child has overactive proteins?

To put it simply, S-100 proteins are naturally occurring proteins in the brain that interact with a group of cells involved with physiological function. That is to say, they are part of normal human body chemistry, and they affect behaviors.

In recent years, S-100 proteins have become the subject of much research, and links have been found to diseases like Alzheimer’s and even certain cancers.  In particular research has linked overactive S-100 proteins with hyperactivity, lack of focus and increased anxiety.

That’s not to say the overactive S-100 proteins are the single cause of these issues. However, they are a strong indicator of struggles with attention and focus, so researchers began developing a S-100 antibody to counteract overactive protein production.

Why stay away from pharmaceutical options? Mostly because pharmaceuticals only address the symptoms of those with attention issues. Instead of working to eradicate the problem altogether, the drugs work to mute the behaviors. Additionally, pharmaceuticals often introduce negative side effects that complicate your child’s life, rather than relieve it. Mild side effects include headaches, weight loss or blurred vision, but it can get worse. With homeopathic antibody options, like Brillia, you can bypass negative side effects altogether, while at the same time fixing the root cause of the symptoms.

Brillia tablets are designed to combat overactive S-100 proteins. Not a lifetime commitment to a drug, rather a single part of a complete holistic strategy, the antibodies in Brillia counteract the overactive S-100 protein internally. This allows you and your child to work on external lifestyle changes. Changes like putting your child on a consistent sleep schedule. Or giving their brain and body the rest they need to maintain sustained focus. Or allowing your whole family to participate in mindfulness meditation to learn how to regulate impulse behaviors. Or decreasing the amount of sugar your child eats every day.

If these lifestyle changes sound like advice for a slew of other ailments, it’s because they are. A holistic approach to health is the foundation of most prevention. Simple, healthy changes give your body the energy it needs to function the right way; the way it should. You rarely need a complicated pharmaceutical answer. You only need good choices and a kickstart toward a healthy lifestyle.
