    UNIVERSITY STUDY ON AUTISM SUPPLEMENTS
    Vitamin C Levels at End of StudyBacked by primary research
    Your kid is now a year old but still not babbling… don’t even show any gesture… Being one and a half year old the kid is not uttering any word… and do not say two-words phrase at the age of two…If these symptoms matches with your child’s behavior then parents, it can make you worried. This behavioral change in your child could be Autism. Various mineral and vitamin supplements for autism are said to be more efficient to curb this disorder. Vitamins for autistic child are highly effective and are the sources of improvement from various nutritional and metabolic disorder. Even medical experts suggest mineral and vitamin supplements for autism. But the dosage and amount of these vitamin supplements for autism must be definite. Also, the solubility and digestion of these vitamins for memory supplements in matters a lot. Taking everything into consideration Brainchild Nutritionals offers Spectrum Support liquid vitamins and minerals.

    A research study on our vitamin supplements for autism showed promising and positive result. Our Spectrum Support liquid vitamins and minerals were used in a double blinded pilot study which was done by the University of Arizona and published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2004.

    A Study on Effective Vitamin Supplements for Autism
    The goal of this study was to “determine the effect of a moderate-dose multivitamin/mineral supplement on children with autistic spectrum disorder”. Blood levels of several nutrients were measured at the conclusion of the study and mothers of the subjects were asked to complete a questionnaire, with respect to the children’s behavior, sleep, language, etc.

    One group of children was given placebo supplements, also made at our lab, using the exact same inactive ingredients as the real ones, plus natural hibiscus for color, and the other group took our actual vitamins and minerals. The parents and children were double-blinded, so that they did not know which group they were a part of.

    The results of the study indicated increases in levels of vitamins B6 and C over a 12-week period, and also statistically significant improvements in sleep and GI problems, Total Vitamin B6as reported by parents of those children in the group taking the vitamin supplements for autism, but not the group taking placebos. These very satisfying results confirmed that our supplements were best vitamins for kids. The result showed excellent absorption and utilization of nutrients in our liquid vitamin and mineral supplements, even in children with autism who typically present with multiple imbalances, gut issues and challenges with nutrient absorption and utilization.

    As an additional note regarding total vitamin B6 levels, it should be noted that vitamin B6 is classically found at high levels in children with autism, as a result of defective pyridoxal kinase and B6 conversion processes. Because their bodies do not convert B6 to usable forms efficiently, these children therefore have a functional need for high supplemented doses of vitamin B6. Multiple studies have verified both this clinical finding and the benefit to children with autism of moderate to high doses of vitamin B6.

    The #1 Rule for Successful AutismSupplementation:

    “Start Low, Go Slow – One new thing at a time”

    The Importance of Biomedical Health in Autism

    We’re glad you found us! If you have a newly-diagnosed child on the spectrum, you may be hearing a dizzying array of advice. We want to help you find your way.

    Raising a child with autism can be compared to balancing on a three-legged stool, with Behavior, Biomedical Health and School Support as the three supportive legs. If any of them is weak, it makes the others not work as well. If you can work on all three areas, especially the weakest, “balance” gets much easier.

    If you have a not-yet-diagnosed child, who is showing signs of needing nutritional support for brain health and digestion, we welcome you as well. You will most likely find many useful tips in this page.

    At BrainChild Nutritionals we believe that biomedical, behavioral and school can all work together, and help to support each other. Conversely, if things are way off balance in one area, other areas rapidly become unstable. At various periods of your children’s life, you will probably find yourself devoting larger amounts of time and effort to working on one area over the others. It has been our experience that making lasting progress in the behavioral area is much easier when you are also supporting your child’s health biomedically. Achieving real success at school is also easier with biomedical support. So we believe that it’s crucial to spend time at some point on all three, and that once you get at handle on each one, the others will become easier to manage.

    “At BrainChild Nutritionals we believe that biomedical, behavioral and school can all work together, and help to support each other. Conversely, if things are way off balance in one area, other areas rapidly become unstable.”

    Our focus here at BrainChild, of course, is on the biomedical side of things. Our goal is to support your child’s nutritional and physical health, which can help them make behavioral and educational progress that really sticks. We’ve seen over and over that this is possible, through the use of appropriate, high quality nutritional supplements and the support of family, friends, experienced practitioners, and all of us here at BrainChild Nutritionals.

    As you may know, the biomedical approach to helping children on the spectrum often includes quite a lot of supplements. This is partly because the children’s digestive systems are so out of balance that they cannot absorb nutrients well, particularly at the beginning. It’s also because so many of their body processes aren’t working very well to do what a normal body does on its own.

    The idea is to get enough of what the body needs to absorb well and be utilized as intended, so that the body can slowly start functioning better, and eventually pick up some of the work itself and need less help. Another goal is to help support the gut to perform more effectively, absorbing nutrients better from food and supplements.

    Supplementation can seem complicated. Understanding what each kind of supplement is supposed to help with, and getting them in place takes some time, planning, and most of all, patience. We know you can do it, and we look forward to helping you learn how.

    Autism Supplementation 101

    1. Vitamins and Minerals

    Typically, children on the spectrum do not absorb nutrients well because their digestive systems are not working very well. Often, they eat a very limited list of foods. B vitamins are particularly important because they are crucial for optimal brain health. Minerals, particularly magnesium, zinc, selenium and trace minerals, can be crucial as well.

    Some parents and teachers report children “waking up” or becoming less brain-fogged when they start taking well-absorbed vitamins and minerals such as ours. This suggests that these kids were literally starving for these nutrients, and may not have been able to absorb and utilize them from diet alone.

    2. Probiotics

    A healthy digestive system contains good flora, which is “good” bacteria that helps with digestive function. If you think of the gut like a garden, the good flora is the plants, worms and helpful insects and the bad flora is weeds and destructive bugs. Probiotics are essentially “seeds” to grow more good flora. Probiotics add good bacteria, and help it to “take root” and grow (colonize), bringing the gut back in balance. If children have serious yeast overgrowth and other gut dysbiosis, probiotics alone may not be enough to rectify the situation. Measures such as our Natural Candida Program may be needed to return a healthy bacterial balance to the digestive tract.

    3. Essential Fatty Acids (Fish Oil)

    Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are considered “essential” because they are needed throughout the human life cycle, cannot be produced in the human body, and therefore must be provided through the diet. EFAs help with brain and nerve development, cellular communication, oxygenation, metabolism and immune response. In children on the spectrum, Omega-3 EFAs such as DHA and EPA are particularly important for the brain, the immune system, and to help fight inflammation. Many studies show that EFA supplementation can also help with positive mood and attention.

    4. Digestive Enzymes

    Our bodies make digestive enzymes to help break down the food we eat. The better food is broken down, the better our bodies can absorb the nutrients in it, and the easier it is for us to get rid of the rest as waste. Kids on the spectrum commonly have low levels of stomach acid and dysfunctional food processing throughout the gut. These children can also have special dietary needs, such as intolerances to proteins such as gluten (in wheat) and casein (in dairy). Dietary enzymes can help break down aggravating proteins and aid digestion. A by-product of better protein digestion is often noted as an improvement in mood and disposition in these children. However, it should be noted that enzymes are not a cure or treatment for any medical condition. Enzymes simply support good digestive function, which can help anyone’s mood and disposition!

    Our focus here at BrainChild, of course, is on the biomedical side of things. Our goal is to support your child’s nutritional and physical health, which can help them make behavioral and educational progress that really sticks. We’ve seen over and over that this is possible, through the use of appropriate, high quality nutritional and natural supplements and the support of family, friends, experienced practitioners, and all of us here at BrainChild Nutritionals.

    HELPING WITH VITAMIN AND MINERAL SUPPORT -ADHD VITAMIN AND MINERAL
    Is Your Smart Child Struggling in School?

    Raising a child with ADHD can be a dizzying process: trying to balance school, tutoring, family activities, and find ways to help your child stay calm and focused at the same time! ADD/ADHD attention difficulties are most often treated using medication, school programs or tutoring. But despite all these efforts, many parents see little improvement in the learning disabilities at the heart of the problem. You may be surprised to learn how much good nutritional support can help. Studies show that targeted nutrition for ADHD can result in significant symptom improvement.

    ADHD involves neurotransmitter imbalances. Often, children with ADHD also have deficiencies or imbalances in critical nutrients that are used to make these neurotransmitters in the body. If we test children with ADHD, we often see that they are not very efficient at digesting and utilizing their food, and may even have parasites, candida or other signs of more serious gut imbalances.

    Supporting the nutritional needs of a child with ADHD can really help educational and behavior interventions “stick”. Solid nutritional support for ADHD includes support for the brain, gut and metabolism. We want to help you find great nutritional tools to help balance your child’s body. On this page, you will learn about all natural adhd supplements that are nutritional support for ADHD.

    This is why we have developed the

    ADHD Multi Kit!

    More Information about Vitamins and ADHD

    B-Complex Vitamins

    All the vitamin B works together synergistically to support critical functions in the brain. All of the B-complex vitamins are co-factors to each other – that is, they help each other to be absorbed and utilized properly by the body. In studies, B-complex vitamins have been shown to reduce hyperactivity symptoms and increase serotonin in children with ADHD, resulting in calmer, happier children! (2)

    Vitamin B6

    B6 is necessary for the production and utilization of neurotransmitters which help regulate mood and brain function. Symptoms of vitamin B6 deficiency include irritability, short attention spans and short term memory loss. Vitamin B6 autism is a well known disorder that depends on its intake and digestion. B6 also helps with carbohydrate metabolism, which can help reduce carb cravings and crashes. Shown in studies to improve hyperactivity symptoms. (1), (2)

    Vitamin B3

    Vitamin B3 may help reduce the severity of behavioral problems, loss of cognitive function and hyperactivity that commonly accompany ADHD. This vitamin also calms your nervous system, so it may curb restlessness and irritability. Vitamin B3 helps with delivery of magnesium, vitamin C, zinc and calcium to the brain

    Vitamin B12

    Vitamin B12 is needed in the body for making and regulating neurotransmitters. Involved in the production and maintenance of the myelin sheath (the protective coating on nerve cells, the “wiring” of the brain), essential fatty acid metabolism and energy production. Vitamin B12 deficiency produces some ADHD-like symptoms such as confusion and memory loss.

    Vitamins B1 and B2

    Vitamin B1 and B2 help deliver glucose to the nervous system and brain. Glucose is the brain’s “fuel”, and these vitamins help make sure it has a steady supply

    Vitamin C

    Studies have shown vitamin C to improve cognition and alertness. Vitamin C is heavily concentrated in the brain and crucial to brain function. The earliest sign of vitamin C deficiency is confusion and depression.

    Antioxidants

    Antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C and E and Bioflavonoids, protect the cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can damage fats, and its main target is the brain. People under a lot of stress, like our kids with ADHD, have particularly high needs for antioxidants, to help support their body in dealing with the effects of stress.

    More Information about Minerals and ADHD

    Magnesium

    85% of all Americans are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is very calming, and has been called the “anti-stress” mineral. Low magnesium and stress reinforce each other: Stress of any kind lowers magnesium levels, and low magnesium levels increase stress on the body. In studies, children with ADHD who were deficient in magnesium showed significant improvement in hyperactivity after taking magnesium supplements (3), (10).

    Magnesium is essential for energy production, cell replication and integrity, detoxification, glutathione synthesis, muscular/neurological function, and maintaining body pH balance.

    Magnesium deficiency has long been thought to play a significant role in the auditory sensitivity or insensitivity common with children with ADHD. This may occur with a predominance of calcium that can create a magnesium deficiency, facilitating an increased release of glutamate, and resulting in an over-stimulation of the auditory nerve.

    One great way to add extra magnesium to your child’s life is to add a cup of calming Epsom Salts to their bath, as a gentle way to start slowing down for bedtime at night. Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate) are safe and non-toxic, but please do not allow your children to drink the bath water!

    Zinc

    Zinc is an important factor in the metabolism of neurotransmitters, prostaglandins, and for maintaining brain structure and function. The expression, “No zinc, no think” is not without merit. Many studies have shown that zinc supplementation is helpful with memory, thinking and I.Q. Dopamine is one of the most important factors in the pathophysiology of hyperactivity disorder, and the hormone melatonin has an important role in the regulation of dopamine. Because zinc is necessary in the metabolism of melatonin, it makes sense that zinc is a very important factor in the treatment of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Oysters are a particularly rich food source of zinc.

    Studies have shown behavioral improvements in response to zinc supplementation. In one six-week double blind and placebo controlled study, children taking 15mg of zinc sulfate + methylphenidate scored significantly higher on a Parent and Teacher Rating Scale than those taking methylphenidate alone. (4) Another study showed significant behavioral improvement when children were given all natural adhd supplements of zinc, magnesium and calcium (10).

    FISH OIL

    Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) help with brain and nerve development, cellular communication, oxygenation, metabolism and immune response. In children with ADHD, Omega-3 EFAs such as DHA and EPA are particularly important for the brain, the immune system, and to help fight inflammation. Many studies show that EFA supplementation can also help with positive mood and attention. (5) EFAs are considered “essential” because they are needed throughout the human life cycle, cannot be produced in the human body, and therefore must be provided through the diet.

    PROBIOTICS

    Unlike in Autism, most children with ADHD do not exhibit gut symptoms. However, according to Dr. Michael Lyon in his book Is Your Child’s Brain Starving? (9), most people with ADHD have little good bacteria and high amounts of harmful bacteria in their stomach. Dr. Lyon conducted research on 75 patients with ADHD and discovered that a third of the children in his study had pathogenic yeast, or harmful bacteria. Dr. Lyon believes that by adding probiotics to the diets of individuals with ADHD, the potentially harmful bacteria will decrease and the symptoms of ADHD will also be reduced.

    For this reason, it makes sense to include a good broad-spectrum probiotic in the all natural adhd supplements regimen of any child with ADHD. Any child with ADHD who improves when starting probiotics, or shows gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating or gas should be tested for parasites and other intestinal problems, and may benefit from the use of a more intense probiotic. A great test to learn more about gut issues is called a CDSA (Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis with Parasitology), available from Direct Labs and many naturopathic doctors (ND’s)
