Manufacturer's Product Description
Multiple vitamin/mineral powder for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
This comprehensive multiple vitamin/mineral supplement contains 28 highly bioavailable essential nutrients in amounts and ratios designed to address nutritional imbalances commonly observed in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Abnormal gastrointestinal function, including chronic diarrhea and malabsorption, affects a significant percentage of individuals with ASD and contributes to nutritional deficiencies. Food elimination diets and a tendency among patients to be highly selective eaters further narrow dietary sources of essential nutrients. VitaSpectrum™ addresses these inadequacies by supplying balanced amounts of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in forms that are typically well tolerated by patients with ASD. Active forms of folate, B12, and B6 are included along with naturally-sourced vitamins A, E, and D for optimal nutrient absorption and utilization. Iron and copper, often contraindicated in ASD, are excluded. VitaSpectrum™ is free of common allergens, including dairy, wheat, corn, eggs, yeast, and gluten. No sugar, maltodextrin, stearates, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, salicylates, or preservatives are used. This powdered formula complies with Gluten-Free/Casein Free (GFCF) and Specific Carbohydrate Diets (SCD™). For maximum tolerance and versatility as a foundational nutritional program, herbal ingredients are avoided. The pleasant, natural citrus flavored powder dissolves easily in liquids or can be mixed in foods. A convenient measuring scoop is provided for accurate dosing.
