VitaSpectrum Powder (citrus)
-Powdered multiple vitamin/mineral supplement for children with Autism Spectrum
Disorders. Natural citrus flavor.
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 carotenes, vitamin E tocopherols,
and vitamin D3 for optimal nutrient absorption and utilization. Iron and
copper, often contraindicated in ASD, are excluded. VitaSpectrum® is free of
common allergens, including milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts,
peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans. No starch, maltodextrin,
stearates, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or preservatives are used.
This powdered formula complies with Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) diets. For
maximum tolerance and versatility as a foundational nutritional program, herbal
ingredients are avoided. The pleasant, natural citrus flavored powder now has
an improved, finer texture that dissolves easily in liquids or can be mixed in
foods. A convenient measuring scoop is provided for accurate dosing.
