Many parents look for a comprehensive, well rounded, good combination supplement. They want something that covers vitamins, something that covers antioxidants as well as something that will also cover minerals. I have seen really good success with my patients with a supplement that is called Syndion or Syndion SF. Syndion was created by a person named Jim Adams. Jim Adams is a PhD researcher from Arizona State University who has been involved in the biomedical community for autism for many, many years. Syndion is a liquid supplement that has vitamins, minerals and antioxidants so you are able to cover all three very critical supplement categories in one easy supplement.
The website also has information such as dosing information that is based on the child's weight to determine how much to take. Usually Syndion is taken twice a day and can easily be mixed with a variety of juices. So for some children who have issues with different tastes, you can try different juice flavors to see which works best. Syndion is a great product especially for children who have a hard time swallowing pills, has issues with swallowing in general or has issues with regards to the taste of certain things. Syndion really provides good support for the very important things that are commonly lacking in people who have autism, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
When you go to implement a new supplement such as Syndion, you may see improvements in areas such as better language, more increased eye contact, or maybe your child will begin to recognize more things in their environment more. You could also see a better mood or greater comprehension, there could be a wide range of improvements that are seen but what is usually happening is that Syndion is helping with those major areas that are affected by Autism. These areas tend to be socialization skills, the issue of language and communication, higher cognitive functioning skills, attention and focusing ability and sometimes the self-stimulatory behaviors and the stereotypical behaviors. Not any one supplement will do everything we are wanting to do, but as a comprehensive multi-vitamin, mineral and antioxidant to provide the needed nutrients, Syndion is a wonderful place to start.
