You have probably heard about it, the supplement LTO3 from Herb-e-Concept. At least, if you experience symptoms due to ADD / ADHD or high sensitivity. Because it turns out that mainly people in this target group with concentration problems, hyperactivity and mood complaints take LTO3. Numerous experiences show that both children and adults are greatly helped by it. Both in terms of concentration and general mental well-being. So, LTO3 appears to be a godsend for many but, it is also expensive. In this article, we therefore take a look at a potentially more affordable alternative.
The popularity of LTO3
So what makes LTO3 so popular? Simple, it is a 100% natural and organic product that has been found to work tremendously well for concentration, busyness of mind and mood for a lot of people. And all without any unpleasant side effects. For people who do experience (mild) side effects, it is often only short-lived and only for a few days during the start of use.
First, far from everyone knows about the existence of LTO3. This is partly because LTO3 is a natural supplement and therefore receives much less attention through official healthcare bodies than recognised medication. You do now hear more and more often that (private) psychologists, psychiatrists, paediatricians and coaches, naming LTO3 as first choice when talking about medication. But great awareness takes time, and so that will take some time.
Secondly, LTO3 does not always appear to work for everyone. In most cases, it is said some 95% of users, LTO3 has a positive impact on concentration, hyperactivity and mood, among other things. Often from the first few days of use, but for some 5% of people there appears to be no effect. Not a bad score, of course, because for Ritalin too, it only works well for around 70% of people with AD(H)D.
The cost of LTO3
Then, finally, there are the costs. And those do pose a problem for some people. Because LTO3 is a natural supplement, it is not covered by health insurance. Sometimes they do in a supplementary package, but for most people it turned out that the high premium cost did not outweigh the coverage.
In fact, the cost of this supplement is not small. 1 jar of LTO3 costs ?39.50 excluding shipping. For people who can easily afford this, this will not be a problem. They will be satisfied with a good-acting organic product that contains very high-quality ingredients and is produced to the highest standards. But there are also plenty of people where this cost is not feasible. Those simply cannot afford the price. That, of course, is a huge shame when you see how many people have already been helped thanks to LTO3. Therefore, we would like to take a look at a possible alternative.
To find a good alternative to LTO3, we will first briefly zoom in on the ingredients.
Ingredients in LTO3
The ingredients in LTO3® have been brought together in the right proportions in one product after a lot of research. This creates the synergistic effect where the ingredients reinforce each other's effects. But what exactly are the main ingredients in LTO3®?
Blue Skullcap is an herb that grows in colder, moist environments. It grows in the Netherlands and America, among other places. It is known for its positive influence on concentration and focus, among other things. The LTO3 formula contains 150 mg per dose (3 caps).
L-Theanine is a substance found in green tea leaves. It is known for its calming effects and is also associated with the soothing properties of a tea. However, from drinking tea, you will never get the amount of L-theanine that you get from this supplement. The LTO3 formula contains 300 mg of L-Theanine per dose (3 caps).
Herring roe (Sementis)
Sementis® is an extract of dried herring roe. It is organic and produced according to the strictest guidelines. It is therefore an extract from the eggs of a herring. Among other things, it contains the substance DHA, an important omega-3 fatty acid that is good for the brain and concentration. The LTO3 formula contains 300 mg of herring roe per dose (3 caps).
Economical alternative to LTO3
So to see what are good alternatives to LTO3, we need to find a product, or products, with the same active ingredients as the LTO3 formula. The active ingredients are: Blue Glow, L-Theanine and the fish oil from herring roe extract. This is partly true as Sementis is a mix of ingredients and cannot be used by just any product. Therefore, we have to look for an alternative here that is as close to it as possible.
After searching for a while, we came to the Dutch company ?Natural Performance? out which has a similar remedy in its range. The reviews on this are good, however, we cannot verify them ourselves. They have divided the ingredients into two different products and added a few more ingredients. These products come together in one package. You can see the package below:
Alpha Focus - Blue Skullcap, L-Theanine, B3 and B8
This supplement contains 300 mg of L-Theanine and 150 mg of Blue Skullcap per dosage of 2 capsules. However, they have added two more vitamins (B3 and B8) that are good for learning performance, memory and concentration, among others.
Ultra Omega-3 ? Good fish oil with high concentration of DHA
This supplement contains 1000 mg of fish oil per capsule, including 220 mg of DHA and 330 mg of EPA. These are both important omega-3 fatty acids that are good for the brain, among other things.
Where to buy?
This supplement pack consisting of two products is enough for 1 month and is priced slightly lower than the regular LTO3®. You pay ?29,95 excl. shipping. If you order for several months at once, you get another nice discount and also pay no shipping costs. Especially for people who are a bit strapped financially, this supplement pack can therefore be an interesting alternative to the regular LTO3® of Herb-e-Concept.
You can find out more about this supplement pack on their website at the link below. There, you can also order it online. They do not have a physical shop and are the only ones who sell it.
The choice is yours
LTO3 has become a world-renowned supplement that continues to grow in popularity. Many good reviews can be found about it. Customers of LTO3 are hugely satisfied with this remedy, which of course says something. We can confirm this from the many positive LTO3 experiences which were sent to us personally.
For many people, however, the price of the original LTO3 will be too high. For them, a cheaper alternative may be the way to go.
The Alternative supplements package from the company 'Naturally Perform' is an interesting alternative. However, it is a smaller company and only known in the Netherlands and Belgium. The reviews are very good though (9.3 average from 300+ reviews).
In my opinion, both means can work well, but you have to decide what you want to try. Both have their advantages. If you'd rather save some money or try something different, we recommend the alternative supplements package. But if you are very happy with LTO3 and can easily afford it, I would stick with the LTO3.
What do you all do or take for ADD / ADHD or HSP?
We are very curious about your opinion. Do you use regular LTO3 or an alternative or maybe something completely different? Maybe you benefit enormously from meditation or sports. Let us hear from you in the comments below. That way we can help each other and share our knowledge.
