VitaSpectrum 180 vcaps by Klaire Labs
VitaSpectrum by Klaire Labs is a comprehensive, multiple vitamin/mineral supplement containing 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 narrow dietary sources of essential nutrients. VitaSpectrum by Klaire Labs addresses these inadequacies by supplying a balanced amount 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. VitaSpectrum is free of most common allergens, including dairy, wheat, corn, eggs, yeast, and gluten. No sugar, maltodextrin, stearates, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, salicylates, or preservatives are used.
This formula complies with Gluten-Free/Casein-Free (GFCF) and Specific Carbohydrate Diets (SCD). For maximum tolerance and versatility as a foundational nutritional program, herbal ingredients are avoided. This formula is similar to VitaSpectrum Powder by Klaire Labs, but the amount of calcium and magnesium in VitaSpectrum have been reduced to adapt the formula into six medium-size capsules instead.
