Methylcobalamin or Methyl B12 is a form of vitamin B12 that is considered to be more absorbable and effectively utilized than other forms of B12. Adequate levels of Methyl B12 are needed to protect nerve tissue and maintain the myelin sheaths that cover the nerve endings. Vitamin B-12 is required for proper digestion, absorption of foods, protein synthesis, and anemia prevention. Helping to metabolize fats and carbohydrates, it aids cell formulation and longevity. Vitamin B-12 promotes development of healthy red blood cells and maintenance of nerve tissue. Adequate levels of this vitamin is important for the creation of glutathione and to assist the body in detoxification.
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 narrows dietary sources of essential nutrients. Spectrum-Mate 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.
