Some Considerations

Infants: Consult your health care provider (physician, naturopath, physician assistance, or nurse practitioner) as to the use and dosing in infants and toddlers under the weight of 22 lbs (10 kg). None of the ingredients are considerations in infants, but your provider should be consulted, particular for dosing.

Adults: SpectrumNeeds™ is for use by adults as well as by children. The wording of “your child” simply reflects the fact that in most cases with neurodevelopmental disorders, it is a parent that is reading and providing this product for their child, regardless of the age that the child may be.

Ask your doctor: It is generally recommended that your health care provider be aware of the usage of all dietary supplements, and SpectrumNeeds™ is not an exception. The involvement of health care providers can be of particular importance in order to discuss potential interactions with medications, other supplements, or medical conditions.

Reducing the number of supplements: SpectrumNeeds™ is designed to be safe when used in addition to the supplements that your child is already on. However, it may be possible and/or advisable to discontinue or lower the dose of one or more current supplements that your child is taking; ask your health care provider.

When we started our son (ASD, ADHD) on Spectrum Needs, we noticed an almost immediate calm come over our normally very active son. He was just CALM. Some of his sensory issues have diminished greatly. For the first time since he regressed into autism, I was able to cut his nails without protest. He previously screamed when making transitions from preferred activities. This week, he has found his words to say, we can go on the elevator another time. The first day he was on Spectrum Needs, he was able to verbalize much more elaborate statements. He spontaneously made unprompted comments such as Goodnight Mommy and stated that he liked his toy; he had never done these without prompting/modeling. It is like he can access his words more readily. His anxieties are much less, and he was able to sleep with a nightlight instead of his bedroom light for the first time in over a year. In short time, this product has made a huge positive difference in our son's everyday functioning. He is much happier, too. He has been singing while playing with his toys, which is also a first. It is so nice to see all of these positive changes.

has made an enormous impact on my well-being. His neurologist also noted that there is a tremendous improvement in his overall demeanor and significant reduction in hyperactivity.

My child was already on many of the supplements included in Spectrum Needs, via Dr. Boles. In addition, he now gets even more beneficial ingredients because of this product. The biggest benefit to our family is the time that is saved by drinking this supplement versus swallowing a bunch of pills. The taste is very palpable alone, and yet we generally mix the powder with juice or add some Crystal Lite flavor drops to the water. I am very thankful for this easy routine, especially at bedtime. I keep a journal of symptoms, and looking back to when we started Spectrum Needs until now, I noticed my son has had a remarkable decrease in nausea.

My 4 year old daughter loves the taste of this product! I feel it has also helped her become more focused and it has cut back on the number of vitamins and supplements she had been taking prior to trying this product!

I've been taking nuero needs for about three weeks now and am seeing an improvement in in the reduction of brain fog, increased contraction, energy and my moods are stabilizing. I was also told I'm a little bit more talkative. I'm not struggling as much to find the right words like I was and the confusion is has lessened. It feels like my brain and body is finally waking up. I am already taking the mito cocktail but this is so much easier to take and a lot less expensive. Thank you for making this product!

I am usually hesitant to try a new supplement for Harry because we have had some doozies, but the universe put day one, and by day two my husband noticed. That was during spring break. Harry is back to school this week and I got a note home joyfully noting how much speech he gained over the break! We have only been using it for a week - I am guessing it is the huge quantities of b12 and folate - but we never see much from supplements, especially in a short time frame. Very pleased here!

My daughter has done wonderful on this supplement and it has allowed us to cut down the number of individual supplements she was getting which is wonderful when dealing with a 3 year old. She likes the taste as well which is helpful for administration.

This is a great product. My 17yr old son takes it daily on his own initiative. He's an athlete and says it makes him feel good physically. I've noticed his mood is more balanced.
