6 Comments & Reviews: Accentrate™

  1. We wanted to report an extreme adverse side effect of bruising as a result from taking Accentrate. Our nine year old daughter took Vayarin for almost a year when Vayarin stopped producing the product. During the time she took Vayarin, she did not experience any adverse side effects from Vayarin.
    Based on a recommendation from our pediatrician, we switched to Accentrate as a replacement for Vayarin. Our daughter started taking Accentrate, one softgel supplement per day. About a week later, we noticed a small bruise on her forehead. She did not recall anything that would have caused a bruise. Two days later, we noticed bruising on her stomach and back, so we took her to the emergency room. All of her bloodwork came back normal, and she was referred to follow-up with her pediatrician. The only thing that had changed since the bruising started was starting to take Accentrate, so we immediately stopped the supplement. The bruising started to fade and no new bruises appeared.
    Based on research we performed, several websites state that possible side effects of some of the ingredients in Accentrate (e.g., EPA, DHA) can be bruising easily (see links below as examples). Bruising is not listed as a side effect on the Accentrate packaging or website.
    We provided the information to Fenix Health Science, the maker of Accentrate, and requested that the supplement be evaluated for additional adverse side effects and that information, including bruising, be reported and available for other potential customers.

  2. My daughter was on Vayarin for about a year and a half. We saw some positive results. When they stopped selling, we switched to Accentrate. She’s been taking it for almost 2 years. We do the quarterly plan, which brings the cost down to $40/month or so. She is an older teen, so is responsible for taking her meds every day with just a reminder if needed. She is also on Vyvanse, as an FYI. She feels like the Vyvanse helps her focus and she can feel the difference in 30mg vs 40mg. I feel like the Accentrate kind of levels her out. She is less emotional and better able to handle anxiety-inducing situations. Her OCD tendancies have also lessened dramatically since being on Accentrate. We can 100% tell when she has skipped the Accentrate – even if she’s taken her Vyvanse that day!

    I highly recommend Accentrate and suggest you use it for a full month to see differences. HOWEVER, we recently got the “chewable” form because the regular pill is difficult for her to swallow. She said the outer shell of the chewable is like plastic and tastes terrible. We are going to try to return the remaining unopened bottles because it’s that bad.

  3. Use with caution. My son started this and developed a severe allergic reaction after about 10 days. He has was on Vayarin for a year and we saw positive benefits. He has also taken a children’s Mvi/min supplement for years. We are pretty certain it was the extremely high level of B vitamins in this product.

  4. My son has been taking Accentrate for the last four months. We’ve noticed improvement and have not felt that medication is necessary right now. The first benefits we noticed were calming in his behavior. He had fewer mood outbursts. He still did, but to a noticeably lessor extent.
    We have found recently, that we do not have to hassle him to sit and do his home work or reading either.
    His ADHD is still noticeable, but much more manageable. And we are happy that we do not have to medicate at this point.

  5. The ingredients in this product are exactly what are used to treat MTHFR genetic polymorphisms, common in kids with ADHD and autism. My son takes all of the methylated vitamins in this for MTHFR.

  6. My son has been on Accentrate since June 2018. He is doing very well. He was hyperactive and would get easily agitated. The first thing we noticed was that he had significantly calmed down after a week of taking Accentrate. We didn’t notice improvements in focus or attention until later in September. but this might also be because he wasn’t in school in June or July. We’ve continually reordered because we feel it helps. It’s nice to take one pill instead of multiple supplements.
