Functional Vitamin B2 Deficiency in Autism
Author(s): Gregory Russell-Jones
Functional vitamin B2 levels were assessed in 600 children with autism aged between two and 30 years old. Every child assessed was found to have functional vitamin B2 deficiency. The deficiency appears to have stemmed from deficiencies in Iodine, Selenium and/or Molybdenum as was found in a previous report by this lab. Functional vitamin B2 is a known essential co-factor in the maintenance of the activity of vitamin B12, and potentially this would also mean that each child was deficient in functional vitamin B12 – a known predisposing factor for autism.
