Research Has Shown a Strong Link Between Mitochondrial Function and Autism

Optimal brain function is highly dependent on the presence of multiple micronutrients. These include vitamins, minerals, cofactors, and other nutrients needed in small amounts. Micronutrients are fundamental for energy metabolism, free radical protection, detoxification, neurotransmission, and many other biological processes. When these functions are not working correctly, a wide range of brain disorders can arise, including:




Intellectual dysfunction

Energy is fundamental to life. Energy is needed by all cells and tissues to perform a wide range of biological functions. When energy metabolism is not working correctly (mitochondrial dysfunction), a wide range of disorders can arise as illustrated around DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man (left).

Abnormal Energy Metabolism (mitochondrial dysfunction) is common in autism. Research has found a degree of mitochondrial dysfunction within individuals diagnosed with autism. These studies are based on biochemistry, enzymology, genetics, and other modalities. Click here to see the data.

People with autism often positively respond to dietary supplementation. For decades, many progressive physicians have been advocating multiple dietary supplements for their patients with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Dietary supplementation, generally at higher dosing than that achievable by diet, can often improve mitochondrial function, mitigate many symptoms, and help to restore health.

Scientific Studies Have Shown Defiencies of Key Nutrients in People with Autism.
Supplementation of These Nutrients Can Be Helpful:
