Spectrum Support I is a metabolic and neuronutrient support liquid vitamin and mineral formula designed for children and adults who do not need the greater intensity of the Spectrum Support II and III products. It contains the same synergistic blend of 33 vitamins, minerals, accessory nutrients and herbs as our other spectrum support formulas, but with lower doses of B6, B12 and folinic acid. Spectrum Support I is also an excellent choice for family members of those on the spectrum.
Spectrum Support I contains two bottles:
Part A - Vitamins and Part B - Minerals.
One set of two 32-ounce bottles provides over a two month supply for a 25 pound child, a one month supply for a 50 pound child, or a 23-day supply for a 100 pound child. The supplements are in the form of a kid-friendly, easy to dose liquid suspension. The vitamins are flavored with natural lemon and lime flavor extracts and low-glycemic index vegetable glycerine. They are also available without lemon and lime flavor extracts. Minerals are not flavored.
Spectrum Support I Vitamins and Minerals are designed to be mixed together and given 3 times a day, with meals, either in juice or other beverage, or alone with a glass of water afterward.
Many customers ask for our help in choosing between our formulas. The fundamental difference between SSI and SSII is that SSII provides higher doses of B vitamins and other nutrients than Spectrum Support I. Both formulas contain a sophisticated blend of 50 vitamins, minerals, accessory nutrients and herbs formulated to normalize and enhance metabolic function. The herbs in Spectrum Support I support digestion, digestive tract integrity, blood sugar regulation, detoxification, immune function, vascular integrity and circulation, as well as enhanced cerebral oxygenation and neurological function. We find that as people on the spectrum improve, they require less of some nutrients. Spectrum Support I is designed to provide for these support needs, without overloading their bodies.
The main difference between SSI and our Ultra-Sensitive Formula is that the Ultra- Sensitive Formula does not contain herbs, flavorings, or ingredients that may irritate the most sensitive systems. SSI is a lower-dose product generally, but does contain the valuable herbs and nutrients that have been removed from the Sensitive Formulas. SSI is appropriate for individuals who need a lower general level of support, and are able to absorb and utilize these nutrients. Many people with attention and focus difficulties find Spectrum Support I incredibly helpful!
ABOUT THE MINERALS
The Spectrum Support Minerals are chemically bound to amino acids to enhance cellular energy production. These minerals are extremely well absorbed, utilized, and tolerated, more so than minerals bound to sulfate, oxide, carbonate, or chloride. All our mineral formulas do not contain iron or copper, as many individuals on the spectrum have issues with metals. Supplementation of copper and iron should be based on individual need, working with a medical practitioner. Our Spectrum Support Minerals are made without any added flavors; they are not available in Lemon Lime.
Spectrum Support I is a good start-up choice for the following:
- People with attention or focus difficulties, who not have more involved digestive or neurological challenges.
- A person on the autistic spectrum who is on the way to recovery and no longer needs higher doses of the B vitamins.
- An individual who has problems taking B vitamins in higher doses.
We suggest that those starting with Spectrum Support I give a trial of Spectrum Support II with PAK after a few months, to see if the child could benefit from the extra nutritional support. Children can then transition over time to SSII and SSIII over time, as desired. The suggested dosage is based upon specific ratios of milligrams of the nutrients to kilograms of body weight and can be adjusted for anyone from 25 to 200 pounds. Introduction or transition to Spectrum Support I is done gradually, over a period of 16 days to allow the body to adjust to the new
formula and the nutritional support it provides.
ABOUT THE LIQUID SUSPENSION
The nutrients in these supplements are broken down into extremely small particles in a gentle, technologically advanced liquid suspension formula which is readily absorbed in the digestive tract and better utilized throughout the body than conventional powders, capsules, tablets or standard liquid solutions.
Our formulas are distinctive for what is left OUT as well as IN: We have never used added sugar, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or sodium benzoate preservative in our supplements and we never will.
