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.
Ingredients: There are 33 active ingredients in SpectrumNeeds.
Non-active ingredients in SpectrumNeeds include all-natural flavor enhancers to encourage regular use. There are no artificial sweeteners, colors, 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.
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. 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.
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.
The product is 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.
SpectrumNeeds® has a “shelf life” or expiration date of 2 years and is located on the bottom of each container. However, once opened by breaking the vacuum seal lid, SpectrumNeeds® is designed to stay fresh for up to 90 days after opening and using the product.
Once opened, store SpectrumNeeds® in a cool dry place and keep SpectrumNeeds® away from warm, humid environments to help ensure effectiveness for longer periods after opening. Crystalline substances, including vitamin C, B vitamins, and other dietary supplements, are prone to a process called deliquescence, in which humidity causes a water-soluble solid to dissolve, which may result in clumping. Although safe, high humidity and extended periods of heat could be degrading the dietary supplement (SpectrumNeeds®) after opening the sealed container.
This product has a natural lemon flavor that many children love, but here are some tips:
- Mix with orange juice, another fruit juice, a smoothie, or any favorite beverage.
- Mix in food, such as oatmeal, mashed potatoes, pudding, even chocolate (real chocolate is a good antioxidant…)
- Try reducing or increasing the volume of fluid to mix with.
Yes, as long as that tube goes to the stomach. Most of the ingredients are absorbed in the small intestine, and may not be adequately absorbed with jejunal (intestinal) feedings. The volume of fluid added can be reduced for tube feedings, or SpectrumNeeds® can be mixed in with formula.
Increases Nutritional Support
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration the scientific research and clinical experience illustrating that people with autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders function better when certain nutrients are supplemented at high doses; This is WHY our product includes high doses of: carnitine, coenzyme Q10, magnesium, pyridoxine, vitamin B12, and vitamin D3
Promotes Mitochondrial Metabolism
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration the scientific research that reveals about one-half of individuals on the autism spectrum have mitochondrial deficiencies; This is WHY SpectrumNeeds® was devised with a blend of the nutrients that can assist in mitochondrial function (energy metabolism): acetyl L-carnitine, alpha ketoglutarate, alpha lipoic acid, L-carnitine, citrate, coenzyme Q10, L-creatine, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacinamide), B5 (pantothenate), B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal-5-phosphate), B7 (biotin), B12 (methylcobalamin), C, D3, and E
Corrects Dietary Deficiencies
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration that children on the autism spectrum often have diets that are deficient in many nutrients shown by low levels in blood or hair; This is WHY our product contains the following nutrients: biotin, choline, chromium, folate, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, pantothenate, pyridoxine, selenium, thiamine, zinc, and vitamins B12, C, D3, and E.
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration that a standard multivitamin supplement may not always be absorbed and utilized, This is WHY SpectrumNeeds® offers the active form of the vitamin in a bioavailable product: activated vitamin B6 as pyridoxal 5-phosphate, activated folate (B9) as 6S-5-L-methyltetrahydrofolate glucosamine and calcium folinate, and activated vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin.
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration that not everyone is the same; This is WHY the dosage of SpectrumNeeds® is tailored to the nutritional management of neurodevelopmental disorders, as well as to a person’s weight.
SpectrumNeeds® takes into consideration that the quality of vitamins and supplements is important; This is WHY SpectrumNeeds® is manufactured in the United States at a highly regulated current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) facility.
So much energy!
I have two autistic sons, so initially I got it for them. However, I have RA and fibromyalgia, so I decided to try the formula out. I can honestly say that it helps me fight through the symptoms of my fibromyalgia, and helps me be able to live a life outside of work and home. The flavor is not my favorite, but I can overlook that because of the results. I wish there was a capsule form because my boys won’t drink the powder. It’s a great product!
It’s so beneficial for my kid, Thanks!
I am making space in my budget for this product :)
