How to Ensure Brillia’s Effectiveness

If you’re thinking of trying Brillia or you just started taking the medication, there are some important steps you should take to ensure you get the most out of our holistic approach. At Brillia, we address symptoms like anxiety, inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity through a combination of lifestyle changes and homeopathic medication. Fundamental lifestyle choices like following a healthy diet and getting adequate sleep are not afterthoughts, but key components to our program, the 5 Pillars. Instead of merely treating symptoms as they arise, as all medications for anxiety and ADHD aim to do, Brillia gets to the root of these symptoms, merging behavioral science and neuroscience for a long-term plan that works. After all, no medication provides a complete cure. The key to minimizing your use of any type of medication, prescription or otherwise, is to establish lasting lifestyle changes that become ingrained habits. These changes are instrumental in managing symptoms and ultimately reducing the need for any medication.

Read on to find out more about how to ensure Brillia’s effectiveness and what makes us different from prescription ADHD and anxiety medication for kids and adults.

What is Brillia Used for?

Brillia’s active ingredient consists of antibodies to the brain-specific S100B protein, which plays a crucial role in how well your brain cells communicate with each other. High levels of the S100B protein have been found in people with ADHD, autism, anxiety, and depression.1 By binding to this protein and regulating its activity, Brillia stops the symptoms related to these conditions from occuring while normalizing monoamines like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, the very same brain chemicals targeted by prescription drugs. Brillia achieves this without making you drowsy, affecting your appetite, causing headaches, or masking your personality. 

Suitable for children, teens, and adults, Brillia does not require a prescription or an official diagnosis. The medication has been used successfully by individuals who have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, PTSD, OCD, ODD, autism, or just anxiety. As long as any of the listed symptoms below are present, Brillia can help. 

Brillia helps to reduce:

Brillia is a gentler, non-prescription alternative to prescription medication for anxiety or ADHD, or it can be used in tandem with prescription medication. Some people combine Brillia with prescription medication to avoid having to increase the dose of their current medication or to address secondary symptoms like anxiety (a common side effect of ADHD stimulant drugs). There is no danger in combining Brillia with other medications or supplements because Brillia is extremely targeted and has no contraindications.

Brillia’s Pillars: How it Works

Brillia’s 5 Pillars consist of the following:

  1. Proper nutrition
  2. Adequate sleep
  3. Mindfulness and relaxation
  4. Controlled screen time
  5. Taking Brillia for support

Each of these pillars is scientifically validated to reduce symptoms related to anxiety and ADHD, turning healthy lifestyle changes into habits so that you can eventually stop taking medication altogether (although you can take Brillia for as long as needed without ever needing to increase the dosage if it is providing support).

While Brillia’s program is not intended to replace professional advice from a therapist or doctor, it does help to control symptoms to optimize a person’s academic, social, and professional performance.

Why did we choose these lifestyle habits for our pillars? Consider these facts:

  • Research indicates that poor diet quality, physical inactivity, poor sleep habits, and sedentary behaviors have all been associated with ADHD diagnoses.2
  • Individuals with the highest score of healthy lifestyle (characterized by a healthy diet, low stress, regular exercise and not smoking) were 95% less likely to be anxious.3
  • Excessive screen time has been shown to exacerbate symptoms of ADHD in adolescents.4
  • Studies show that kids who spend the most time on their screens are statistically more likely to struggle with depression, anxiety, and social anxiety.5
  • Mindfulness techniques, like breathing exercises and meditation, have been clinically proven to be just as effective in reducing anxiety as prescription medication.6
  • Mindfulness has been shown to significantly improve symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and stress in adolescents and adults.7

How to Take Brillia Correctly

To get the best results, it’s important to take the three daily doses of Brillia as evenly spread out across the day as possible. As a gentle and cumulative product, Brillia needs to build up in the system over time; your body depends on a steady trickle of the active ingredient to maintain optimal levels. Moderate and severe doses require three doses spread out as evenly as possible throughout the day to provide this steady trickle. It usually takes around three to four weeks for optimal levels to be reached, but we suggest waiting for three months before deciding if the medication is suitable for you.

The recommended dosage is based on the severity of your symptoms as you would rate them, and it may take some experimentation to find the right dose for you or your child. There are three dosage options for adults (mild, moderate, or severe). For children and teens, we offer the same dosage options, but we recommend starting them on the moderate or severe dose for their first cycle because the mild dose is very gentle and only a small percentage of children see results with it. Once you start to notice results and the active ingredient has built up in the system, you can dose down to the mild dose to see if you can maintain the same results. If you notice that your child’s symptoms are starting to return with the mild dose, then you can return to the moderate dose. This method is recommended based on feedback we have received from parents with children who did not see the results they hoped to see with the mild dose. 

Just as important as finding the right dosage and taking Brillia consistently, is implementing the 5 Pillars. The medication works best when combined with healthy lifestyle habits, which help to establish a foundation for a balanced mind and body.

Brillia for Children & Teens

Brillia for Children & Teens is for children ages five to 18. We recognize that the dosage schedule of three times daily can sometimes be difficult for your child when they are in school. If they are unable to take their medication at school, be sure to have them take the second dose first thing when they get home, and the third dose two hours before bedtime, even if two doses might end up being taken a little closer together.

If you would rate your child’s symptoms as severe, start with the severe dosage, which requires them to take two pills in the morning, two mid-day, and two in the evening. 

Please note, if you do not see the improvement you’re hoping to see with the moderate dosage, there is no harm in trying the severe dosage, even if you would still rate your child’s symptoms as moderate. Keep in mind, once you do find the right dosage, you do not need to increase it over time to benefit from the medication. 

To ensure you get the most out of the medication, Brillia connects you with ongoing support every step of the way. When you purchase Brillia, you join a program that provides guidance through regular emails. These emails help you ensure you're using Brillia correctly, track your progress, and offer advice on adjusting your dosage. You'll also have access to our Customer Care Team available via email, phone, and chat seven days a week to assist you. Our goal is to help you achieve the best possible results with Brillia.

Brillia for Adults

Brillia for Adults is for adults ages 18 and up. Similar to our instructions for the children’s formulation, we also recommend that adults start with the moderate dosage if they are unsure how to rate their symptoms. 

The moderate dosage requires two pills three times a day, whereas the mild dosage requires one pill three times a day. When it comes to the severe dosage, you should take three pills in the morning, two pills mid-day, and three pills in the evening. 

Though the active ingredient in Brillia for Adults is the same as Brillia for Children & Teens, Brillia for Adults has a much stronger formulation. It’s important for children and teens to use the children’s version to allow for more gradual dosing changes if necessary. 

Is Brillia Effective?

To be clear, Brillia is not a "miracle cure" – such a thing doesn't exist. We also don't claim that Brillia is as effective as prescription medications. However, we do believe that, in many cases, incorporating Brillia within a holistic approach can effectively manage symptoms without the potential adverse effects associated with quickly prescribed prescription medications. If you find that Brillia is not a fit for you or your child, you can use our money-back guarantee.

How do we know Brillia works? For one, Brillia is clinically-proven to reduce symptoms associated with ADHD and anxiety. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, the medication was shown to have a “pronounced therapeutic effect in patients with mild to moderate ADHD” by helping to “neutralize” clinical manifestations of behavior and attention disturbances.8 Symptoms noted as being reduced included hyperactivity, cognitive deficit, and anxiety severity while improving school performance. These improvements were enough for the study authors to recommend Brillia as a monotherapy for individuals with ADHD. 

Other evidence that Brillia is effective comes from the positive reviews of actual Brillia users. Here are some of the remarks users have made about our medication: 

  • “Brillia worked beautifully, allowing me to focus and feel hopeful again. It felt subtle, not like the quick high and the crash and burn of meds. But, It really made a difference.” -Anna W. 
  • “Within 6-9 days of being on Brillia our sweet little boy came back. He is joyful for the first time in years.” -Megan M.
  • “Took a few weeks to notice the benefits but I noticed a big change in my anxiety. I was happy to know I could take it with my daily meds without any issues.” -Joyce W.
  • “I have a son that just turned 18...he had his fingers in his mouth chewing constantly on his nails, suffered from anxiety, couldn't focus, he had anger issues...after week one we started noticing results. After week three he was on his way to a much more calm, relaxed young man…” -Julie G.

Are There Negative Side Effects when Taking Brillia?

One major reason some Brillia users switch over Brillia after being on prescription medication is to avoid side effects. Brillia is not linked to any harmful side effects or contraindications. 

Brillia does contain lactose, which is used as a binding agent because it has no interaction with the active ingredient. If you have a sensitivity to lactose, this should be taken into consideration should you decide to try Brillia. It’s worth noting that lactose intolerance is not the same as a milk or dairy allergy. Some Brillia uses are using a lactose enzyme to control any reactions, such as gas or upset stomach. But the severity of symptoms will depend on your degree of sensitivity. You can always try Brillia to see if it’s tolerable and use our money-back guarantee if it is not. 

In clinical studies, some adverse effects were noted, but they were considered mild and rare.9 They included headaches and impaired glucose intolerance. However, these side effects did not require drug discontinuation or administration of other drugs.

Key Takeaways

In conclusion, to ensure Brillia works for you and your child, remember these tips:

  • Brillia is a holistic program, and the medication is just one part of it. Following the 5 Pillars — proper nutrition, adequate sleep, controlled screen time, and mindfulness–are key factors in reducing your symptoms and maximizing Brillia’s success.
  • Once you find your correct dosage, the medication should be taken consistently and spread out evenly across the day to ensure the active ingredient builds up in the system.
  • Brillia usually takes about three to four weeks to produce noticeable results, but we suggest waiting for three months before deciding if the medication is suitable for you.
