Autism is a bio-neurological developmental disability that generally appears before the age of 3. Autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Individuals with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.
Individuals with Autism often suffer from numerous physical ailments which may include: allergies, asthma, epilepsy, digestive disorders, persistent viral infections, feeding disorders, sensory integration dysfunction, sleeping disorders, and more.
Autism is diagnosed four times more often in boys than girls. Its prevalence is not affected by race, region, or socio-economic status. Since autism was first diagnosed in the U.S., the occurrence has climbed to an alarming one in 150 people across the country.
Autism does not affect life expectancy. Currently there is no cure for Autism, though with early intervention and treatment, the diverse symptoms related to autism can be greatly improved.
Autism is a physical condition linked to abnormal biology and chemistry in the brain. The exact causes of these abnormalities remain unknown, but this is a very active area of research. There are probably a combination of factors that lead to autism.
Genetic factors seem to be important. For example, identical twins are much more likely than fraternal twins or siblings to both have autism. Similarly, language abnormalities are more common in relatives of Autistic children. Chromosomal abnormalities and other nervous system (neurological) problems are also more common in families with Autism.
A number of other possible causes have been suspected, but not proven. They involve:
- Digestive tract changes
- Mercury poisoning
- The body's inability to properly use vitamins and minerals
- Vaccine sensitivity
Some children with autism appear to respond to a gluten-free or casein-free diet (all Intact Nutrition Products are Gluten Free and Casein Free). Gluten is found in foods containing wheat, rye, and barley. Casein is found in milk, cheese, and other dairy products. Not all experts agree that dietary changes will make a difference, and not all studies of this method have shown positive results.
If you are considering these or other dietary changes, talk to both a doctor who specializes in the digestive system (gastroenterologist) and a registered dietitian. You want to be sure that the child is still receiving enough calories, nutrients, and a balanced diet. Intact Digest™ is a supplement taken with your food.
The effects of toxins are so elusive, we often are unaware that we are being affected with a common toxin until we come down with a chronic disease and even then we may not know. Common causes of toxicity are excessive high fructose consumption; bacteria secreting ammonia, protein that is not being converted to urea due to high fructose consumption can cause the liver to be over worked.
Good Health Begins with Good Digestion. Intact Digest™ with Nutri-Mastic™ should be part of your daily diet. The key to Good Health is to ensure that the body always receives an adequate and balanced supply of anti-oxidants and all mineral (elements) that will be of potential benefit to maintaining or restoring your personal health and wellness. Although the body manufactures some vitamins, it cannot manufacture a single mineral. All tissue contains minerals which are vital to our "Health and Wellness". Without these vital nutrients, it would be impossible for the body to function. >> Read more about Nutri-Mastic™

All Intact Nutrition™ Brand Products Combined with our proprietary blend of Nutri-Mastic™ carry the best Magnesium that can be found. All Magnesium that is in Intact Nutrition™ Products comes from the sea, untouched and Ionically charged. IONIC MINERALS, and TRACE MINERALS, play an important role in the function of the liver, kidneys, boosting red blood cells, amino acids, enzymes and iron, mobilizes calcium, supports the digestive system, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, immune system, reduces stress and frustration, supports PH balance and promotes relaxation.* There are many studies that show positive results supplementing B6 and magnesium for Autistic children.**
Magnesium is an essential element which is a catalyst for more than 300 enzymatic reactions, in particular those involving ATP (Adenosine-5'-triphosphate). ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. Many aspects of cell metabolism are regulated by magnesium, such as DNA and RNA synthesis, cell growth, and cell reproduction. Magnesium also orchestrates the electric current that sparks through the miles of nerves in our body. Without magnesium, muscle and nerve functions are compromised and energy diminished. We are operating with the power turned off.
While you are finishing your latest meal, digestive enzymes are pouring into your small intestine from your liver, pancreas and gall bladder to break down the large macro-molecules into easily absorbable smaller particles. In order to process food as it passes through the intestines the body must absorb nutrients into the bloodstream as they are broken down into smaller micro-molecules. Minerals that are absorbed in their Ionic Form are electrically charged and have unique properties that distinguish them from each other and allow them to freely take part in biochemical communication throughout the body. These communications help nutrients to move to specific areas of the body, such as all the peristalsis muscles (involuntary muscles) such as the heart, lungs and digestive system which significantly help in all forms of digestive functions. >> See History of Mastic Gum

Tips for children's consumption; Parents of Autistic children know by experience that it is extremely difficult to fool their children at the best of times. Experience also tells us that Autistic children are very particular on what they eat and how it tastes. As shown in our dosage chart, children from 3 to 14 years should be given 3-4 drops per day. If you experience rejection, we suggest that you split the recommended dosage into two parts disguised in their favorite drink. Many children do not require this dosage variation but some do.
