Powdered multiple vitamin/mineral supplement for children on the spectrum.
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
on the spectrum. Gastrointestinal
function, including transit time and
absorption issues, affects a significant percentage of individuals on
the spectrum and contributes to altered nutritional requirements.
Food elimination diets and a tendency 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 those on the spectrum. Bioactive forms of folate,
B12, and B6 are included along with naturally sourced carotenes,
vitamin E, and D for optimal nutrient absorption and utilization.
Iron and copper, often contraindicated in those on the spectrum,
are excluded. VitaSpectrum® is free of common allergens, including
milk/casein, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/ gluten,
yeast, and soybeans. No starch, maltodextrin, stearates,
artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or preservatives are used.
VitaSpectrum® formulas comply with Gluten-Free/Casein-Free
(GFCF) diets. For maximum tolerance and versatility as a
foundational nutritional program, herbal ingredients are avoided.
The pleasant, natural berry-pomegranate or citrus flavored powder
formulas dissolve easily in liquids or can be mixed in foods. A
convenient measuring scoop is provided for accurate dosing.
Adults or Children 4 or more years of age: 1 scoop daily with food. Children less than 4 years of age: As directed by a healthcare practitioner. Mix powder directly into room temperature or cold foods or beverages just before serving.
