New research: EMPowerplus better than placebo for kids with ADHD

A new fully blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled study out of New Zealand showed that Truehope EMPowerplus may have a positive effect on the mental health in children with ADHD.

Researchers published their findings last week in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.

The researchers randomly assigned the nearly 100 children, who were between the ages of 7 and 12, to one of two groups: a placebo group or a group taking EMPowerplus.

Both groups received standardized ADHD assessments. Researchers then collected data from clinicians, parents, participants, and teachers for various measures, including ADHD symptoms, general functioning, mood, aggression, and emotions.

Several interesting results emerged from the research:

  • The EMPowerplus group improved much to very much at twice the amount of the placebo group.
  • The EMPowerplus group had three times the meaningful improvement in inattention, compared to the placebo group.
  • EMPowerplus users also improved more than the placebo group in emotional regulation, aggression, and general functioning.

This is the latest research in nearly 3 dozen studies showing the positive mental health benefits of Truehope EMPowerplus.
