Natural Formula Holds Promise for Autism

The all-natural supplement ADD-care was originally meant to target the executive functioning of the brain by increasing dopamine and establishing proper electrical polarity in the body, both of which are deficient in people with ADD/ADHD. Previous to ADD-care, this could only be accomplished by stimulants such as Adderall or Ritalin. In research at the Amen Clinic, the brain scans supported target areas.

However, it was found that acetylcholine, GABA and serotonin, all neurotransmitters, or brain chemicals involved in mental health conditions, were also dramatically increased. Due to these findings, the subsequent patent suggested that ADD-care may well have a positive effect for ADD, depression, anxiety, obsessive thoughts and compulsions, general memory, Parkinson’s and the autistic spectrum.

At present, only a few medications are used for autism, including SSRI antidepressants and antipsychotics, which may cause uncomfortable side effects. ADD-care contains no stimulants and has a calming, yet focusing action without side effects. Parents have reported that their child with autism responded positively to the homeopathic formula. The traditional anticonvulsants and antipsychotics tend to work on the GABA pathway. ADD-care contains the natural amino acid GABA, which is the precursor to the neurotransmitter GABA, and therefore naturally assists in calming someone that is easily over-stimulated, which is a cardinal feature of autism.
