Studies show that the developing brains of children on the spectrum have specific nutritional needs, which is why we designed My Spectrum Heroes. It is difficult to encourage healthy food choices in kids, so we decided to fill the nutritional gaps with the highest quality nutritional supplements to give you peace of mind.
Yes, My Spectrum Heroes Nutritional Supplements are formulated to be free from gluten, casein, soy, GMO’s, added sugar, artificial colors and flavors, and preservatives. In other words, just the good stuff!
Do to the fact that many children on the spectrum have sensory issues and/or trouble swallowing, we designed My Spectrum Heroes™ Multivitamin Mineral Plus to be in a powder form so it can be easily mixed in water or your child’s favorite drink. It can even be added to a soft serve food like yogurt, pudding, or purees
We formulated My Spectrum Heroes™ Multivitamin Mineral Plus without added flavoring since many children have sensitivities to those additives. Due to the nature of ingredients, it may have a slight “vitamin” taste, but the mild taste is easily masked by juice or diluted in water. You can even mix it in a smoothie, yogurt, or similar food as well. Keep in mind that it will turn the liquid orange due to the B vitamin Riboflavin.
Since every child has his/her own unique biochemistry, this can be a difficult question to answer. Depending on if and what deficiencies your child may have, repleting them can have so many positive results from immediately to over several weeks of consistent intake. It all really depends on each individual. Our goal was to design supplements to help fill the nutritional gaps that many children on the spectrum are experiencing.
Some of our kiddos have sensitive tummies and taking supplements with meals helps prevent upset stomach. It is not mandatory to take with food, just suggested. If your child does not experience an upset stomach then it is just fine for them to take without food.
My Spectrum Heroes Nutritional Supplements were formulated based on scientific research and clinical trials that show common nutrient deficiencies in children with ASD. We designed our supplement to ensure that your child is getting adequate amounts of nutrients to help promote optimal health and development. However, our supplement is not intended to treat, diagnose, prevent, or cure disease. If you have any concerns, please consult your physician.
It is common for urine to be a brighter yellow color when taking My Spectrum Heroes Multivitamin Mineral Plus due to the B vitamins. In particular, vitamin B2- Riboflavin, (the “flavin” portion comes from the Latin word “flavus” meaning “yellow”.) If it is extremely bright, this could indicate your child is not drinking enough water. Drinking plenty of water can dilute this bright color if it is bothersome.
My Spectrum Heroes™ Multivitamin Mineral Plus was formulated based on research and clinical trials that showed efficacy in individuals with autism, but the superior ingredients found in that product can be beneficial to a great many individuals. The high potency amounts of ingredients were chosen based on those studies, so we recommend starting at a lower dosage for all other individuals. Choose the dosage recommendation for the next weight down. For example, if your child is 95 pounds, use the dosage for the 60-91 pound.
