The Official Vitamin/Mineral Supplement of the Arizona State University Autism/Asperger's Research Program

ANRC Essentials Plus is an improved version of a vitamin/mineral supplement demonstrated to greatly improve the nutritional status of children and adults with autism in a major randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research study at Arizona State University (ASU).

"We used the results of several previous studies of individual nutrients to design a comprehensive multi-vitamin/mineral supplement that could improve many different aspects of nutritional status. We have been doing research on vitamins and minerals for children with autism for over 10 years, and we are very pleased to see that research culminate in the release of ANRC Essentials."

-Prof. James Adams, Ph.D., director of the Autism/Asperger's Research Program at Arizona State University

Many individuals that come to ANRC have core issues with socialization problems, language problems, behavioral problems, stereotypical behaviors, sensory issues, self-stimulatory behavior, etc. There can be a number of ways to intervene, whether it is through behavioral therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, etc. There are a wide variety of supplements obviously that are used and available to help treat some of the core problems.

Research on the development of ANRC Essentials

Physician Testimonial | Parent Testimonials

ANRC Essentials Plus contains over 30 important nutrients, including:

  • Many vitamins and minerals at doses determined to be optimal based on research studies.
  • Highly-bioavailable forms of all ingredients, so that they are well-absorbed.
  • Special ingredients for individuals with ASD.
    • Methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF as Quatrefolic®) – one of the most bioavailable forms of folic acid.
    • High amounts of vitamin B12, which works in conjunction with MTHF.
    • Strong antioxidant support.
    • Strong glutathione support.
    • Strong mitochondrial support.
    • Excellent source of sulfate, which is usually low in ASD.
    • L-Carnitine, to provide energy for the body and the brain.
    • Mixed vitamin E (primarily gamma-tocopherol, which is the primary form in fruits and vegetables).
    • Mixed carotenoids (the precursor for making vitamin A) and some pre-fromed vitamin A as retinyl.
    • Two forms of vitamin B6 (both pyridoxal HCl and P5P) for optimal B6 metabolism.
    • Lithium – many children with autism/ASD and their mothers have low levels of lithium. For more information see here.
    • Four forms of vitamin B3 (niacin, niacinamide, NADH, and nicotinamide riboside), to ensure substantial increase in NADH, the bioactive form of B3. Note that our previous study (Adams 2011) found NADH was significantly lower in ASD, and a recent study found nicotinamide riboside was significantly lower in children with ASD.
