- Well-tolerated nutrient forms: Nutrient "families" are used to provide a wider range of nutritional activity. For example, natural vitamin A and vitamin E tocopherols are included to provide diverse antioxidant benefit.* Biologically active forms of folate, B12, and B6: Children on the autism spectrum have been shown to have a variety of metabolic abnormalities that include impaired methylation and transsulfuration biochemistry.* Significant amounts of the active forms of folate (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) and vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin) are used as they are easily absorbed and utilized by the body.* Together these two vitamins can assist proper methylation and help support normal homocysteine levels.* The active coenzyme form of vitamin B6 (known as P-5-P), is also included to support transsulfuration pathways.*
- Bioavailable minerals and trace elements: Many common forms of minerals used in supplements are not easy for the body to absorb. To address this concern, Kid's Optimal Multivitamin contains low molecular weight mineral compounds and other forms that are easily and comfortably digested.
- Non-allergenic ingredients: Kid's Optimal Multivitamin is free of common allergens including milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, and wheat/gluten. No artificial sweeteners, colorings, flavoring, or preservatives are used. Allergen note: the vitamin E tocopherols in this product are soy-derived, but the final product is highly purified and contains no detectable soy protein.
