SpectrumNeeds® is a nutritional supplement containing vitamins, minerals, and activated cofactors used to optimize the nutritional status of children and adults with autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders (including ADD/ADHD), used to stimulate specific biological pathways in order to promote health.*
SpectrumNeeds® includes nutrients that:
- Constitute an excellent broad basis of essential micro-nutrition.
- Promote mitochondrial energy metabolism.
- Generate essential cofactors, such as coenzyme A.
- Provide strong antioxidant support for free radical removal.
- Remove harmful metabolites, including certain organic acids.
- Enhance methylation needs, and thereby assist in gene regulation.
- Facilitate selected neurotransmission, including GABA receptors.
- Protect the nervous system, including by reducing NMDA glutamate receptor activity.
- Assist in the regulation of insulin control.
- Improve small vessel circulation in the brain.
Intended Population: SpectrumNeeds® is designed to be used by all individuals regardless of age, gender, presence or type of neurodevelopmental conditions, common comorbidities, severity of disease, DNA sequence information, medications, or other supplements taken. The formulation is in particular tailored to the dietary needs of children and adults on the autistic spectrum and related neurodevelopmental disorders. In particular, SpectrumNeeds® includes many essential nutrients that are often deficient in individuals with an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). However, SpectrumNeeds® can be taken by all individuals who desire a basis of excellent nutritional and dietary interventions to promote improved metabolism, methylation, and neurotransmission.
Ingredients: There are 33 active ingredients in SpectrumNeeds®.
Non-active ingredients in SpectrumNeeds® include all natural flavour enhancers to encourage regular use. There are no artificial sweeteners, colours or fillers. The product is also free of gluten, casein/milk, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, egg, fish and shellfish. There are no ingredients at or near dosages considered to be toxic.
Infants: Consult your health care provider (physician, naturopath, physician assistance, or nurse practitioner) as to the use and dosing in infants and toddlers under the weight of 22 lbs (10 kg). None of the ingredients are considerations in infants, but your provider should be consulted, particular for dosing.
Adults: SpectrumNeeds® is for use by adults as well as by children. The wording of “your child” simply reflects the fact that in most cases with neurodevelopmental disorders, it is a parent that is reading and providing this product for their child, regardless of the age that the child may be.
Ask your doctor: It is generally recommended that your health care provider be aware of the usage of all dietary supplements, and SpectrumNeeds® is not an exception. The involvement of health care providers can be of particular importance in order to discuss potential interactions with medications, other supplements, or medical conditions.
Reducing the number of supplements: SpectrumNeeds® is designed to be safe when used in addition to the supplements that your child is already on. However, it may be possible and/or advisable to discontinue or lower the dose of one or more current supplements that your child is taking; ask your healthcare provider.
