    I understand it helps you to distinguish between their, there and they're.

    No it doesn't work. It is a scam so pill-producers can make money from gullible people. The way to improve your concentration is to regularly spend time studying. Take frequent breaks and slowly increase the length of time you study in one go over a number of months. If you feel your concentration wandering, go and take a walk or make a cup of tea.

    well it depends...if you believe it works, it works
    if you don't then it doesn't
    science has proved that it all BS!
    but it acts upon your mental ability to think that it is working....kinda like a placebo (don't know how to spell).

    I'm quite amused that you couldn't even concentrate for long enough to read an article about a subject you started a thread about!

    I'm helping people from Oxford university with an experiment where we give Vitamin C tablets and Fish Oils and such to Year 10s and the aim is to see if they perform better. One group is getting a placebo and one group getting the real thing. It's a double-blind study. I'm getting a reference from Oxford for helping :P

    My friend just took them for her A Levels, she says they worked but she's a gullible sort so I'm guessing placebo effect

    I have a better remedy for poor concentration, one that doesn't leave such a horrible taste in your mouth. It's called a good night's sleep.
