What are the Drug Facts and Ingredients of Brillia?
Visit Brillia's Targeted Ingredients & Drug Facts page for this information and to review the label.
Why should I give Brillia to my child?
Brillia is an impactful and safe non-prescription alternative to prescription pharmaceuticals and does not have harmful side effects. Brillia helps reduce the symptoms of anxiety and/or hyperactivity, consequently helping improve attention and focus. Brillia is able to be used by children, teen and adults with a variety of diagnoses, or no official diagnoses at all, as long as they suffer from anxiety or hyperactivity.
Is it okay to take Brillia with other supplements/medications?
Based on our clinical studies and research, Brillia does not have any contraindications with other supplements or medications.
Does Brillia contain gluten?
No — Brillia is gluten free.
What do I do if my child takes more than the recommended full dose?
It is recommended to not take any more Brillia for that day and to drink lots of fluids to flush the extra medication out of the system. We recommend keeping Brillia in a safe place that your child cannot access and checking with your pediatrician if you have any questions about a specific health condition.
Is Brillia regulated by the FDA?
Homeopathic non-prescription over-the-counter products such as Brillia are regulated somewhat differently than other drug products, and rather than an “approval” process they must go through a review and registration process by the FDA. This process includes providing substantive documentation, with clinical trials and studies, of the claims that the product makes, abiding by FDA standards and regulations (e.g., for quality and labeling), and going through a proper registration process detailing active ingredients and inactive ingredients in order to be allowed to be sold in the U.S. This product has been available for almost 10 years with great success and history supporting its efficacy as well as its safety.
What is Brillia's active ingredient?
The active ingredient of Brillia is antibodies to the brain-specific S100 protein (S100B). This protein is an important regulator of many different intracellular and extracellular brain processes, e.g. various enzymes activities, calcium homeostasis, communication between neurons, etc. Since almost all mental and neurological diseases as well as temporal stress-induced conditions are accompanied by disturbance of the above-mentioned processes, especially communication between neurons, the normalization of these processes is considered to be a prospective way to treat people with such undesirable conditions. Brillia is an antibody conjugated to the S100B protein and does not alter the concentration of the S100B protein in the bloodstream. Brillia's efficacy stems from its ability to regulate the activity of the S100B protein and does not alter its concentration. In order for a protein to have an effect in the body, it needs to bind to its target, such as an enzyme. Proteins have very specific conformations that ensure that only the correct protein binds to the correct target molecule. Once the protein correctly orients itself into the active site of the target molecule, this is when the protein causes an effect in the body. When Brillia binds to the S100B protein, the overall shape of the protein is altered, hindering its ability to bind to its target molecule and thereby controlling its activity in the body. In short, Brillia stops the S100B protein from acting in the body by changing its shape, consequently regulating levels of anxiety and hyperactivity.
What are the Brillia dosage instructions for children?
Brillia’s recommended dose depends on the severity of your child’s symptoms as you would rate them: moderate or severe. If you are not sure, we recommend you start with the moderate dosage, which means one pill in the morning, one mid-day and one in the evening at least 2 hours before bedtime. Moderate and severe require 3 doses spread out as evenly as possible throughout the day. We understand that can be a bit challenging with the school schedule. However, it is still recommended to take 3 doses even if two of them might end up being a little closer together instead of doubling up on a dose. So for your child’s case, we recommend one dose in the morning, one as soon after school as possible, and one about 2 hours before bedtime.
Are there any harmful side effects to taking Brillia?
Brillia has no known harmful side effects, short term or long term. Brillia is not habit forming, it does not cause drowsiness or depression, and it does not mask the personality, it does not affect appetite, it does not cause weight loss and has no contraindications with any other supplements or medications that may be taken at the same time, so you can add it to the regimen without worry.
What happens if I forget to take Brillia on a regular basis?
Brillia is a gentle product and has a cumulative effect so it needs to be taken every day consistently to build up in the system and to maintain a steady flow of the product into the system. There are no harmful side effects if a dose is missed — but it may lessen the efficacy if too many doses are missed.
How can the results of taking Brillia be maximized?
Brillia is most effective when paired with the utilization of our five pillars. We recommend a holistic approach and encourage adults, parents and children to include healthier lifestyle choices in this process including ways to improve nutrition, getting a better night's sleep, practicing mindfulness/relaxation techniques and controlling screen time. We have lots of advice in blogs from parents and professionals on our website with recommendations on how to achieve these. They are more geared toward younger children, but they can definitely help adults as well. Brillia Resource Center >
For adults, it’s never too late to modify lifestyle choices for the better. These can have an impactful effect on these symptoms. And for children and teens, the goal is that as the child matures, they will make these healthier lifestyle choices a habit and start to learn behavioral ways to control their symptoms and need less and less of a product. But even if they do, Brillia can continue to offer them this additional support for as long as they need it, without harmful side effects.
When will I see results from using Brillia?
Brillia is a gentle product and has a cumulative effect. The success rate also depends on how well you are able to stay consistent with the program, make sure the Brillia pill is taken properly (by letting it melt in the mouth and not chewing or swallowing it), and how well you pick the dosage to make sure that enough of the active ingredient is in the system to show results. We do have wonderful feedback from many parents who are using Brillia and seeing results. Some see results in the first 2-3 weeks, and for others it can take longer. To encourage you to commit and be patient, we offer a full money back guarantee if you do not see the results you are looking for at the end of the 3 month period.
How long do I continue to take Brillia?
Our studies have shown the highest efficacy with the regimen of 3-months on and 1-month off. The 4th month off is a rest period where you can focus on the other pillars of the program (proper nutrition, adequate sleep, practicing child-friendly mindfulness/relaxation techniques and controlling screen time). There should be no regression during the 4th month, because Brillia continues to stay in the system. And then you can start another 3 months on. Some are afraid to stop during the fourth month, worried that the symptoms will come back. There is no harm in continuing on without stopping if that is what works best for you or your child. There are also no side effects to taking or stopping Brillia. So we recommend that if you are going to try taking the 4th month off to evaluate how you or your child do during this month to decide if it’s a good choice for you.
