In brief: Nothing Proven

Although there is ongoing research, so far nothing has been proven to help this problem do not believe unsubstatiated claims or advertising.
If these things were so successful, don't you think all trained pediatricians would recommend them. Also , very few of these herbal products have any safety trials. Buyer beware!

In brief: Maybe

Gingko biloba is currently being investigated for that purpose.
Studies are not definitive, and there is ongoing research into this. What the dose should be for children is unknown, as well as how much is safe. Good quality omega three supplements are used by some for this purpose also, and they are readily available and provide multiple health benefits to skin, brain, and cardiovascular system.
