(NaturalNews) Methylcobolamin (Methyl-B12) as a vitamin is a very important treatment for individuals - children, teenagers and adults - on the autism-spectrum. It is also useful for people with other issues as well including attention deficit, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, sensory processing and speech/language problems. Why is it so important, and why should you be using it as a supportive treatment? Because Methyl-B12 is known to significantly help with higher cognitive function such as speech and language development, focusing and attention, improved environmental awareness, and more willingness to engage socially.

How does Methyl-B12 do this, and why should it be considered as an essential therapy for those on the autism-spectrum? The bottom line is that it works
well for many individuals.

Methyl-B12 supports an important biochemical system in our body called methylation. Methylation chemistry is critical for a variety of essential physiological effects including proper sequencing and production of brain chemistry such as dopamine and serotonin which are necessary for motor coordination, mood and focusing. Methylation supports healthy brain cell function by augmenting the production of glutathione which is necessary to protect the cells against toxins, i.e. heavy metals, chemicals.

This process of glutathione production helps our body get rid of toxins. It also supports normal immune function and helps protect the brain against oxidative stress which causes tissue damage. Methylation supports healthy cells throughout the body and brain to increase their communication capabilities. This is particularly important in the brain where cell-to-cell communication is critical for proper brain function. Methylation also augments the integrity of our DNA which is crucial for our overall health and survival. Without methyation and the physiological support of Methyl-B12 our ability to function from a cognitive and speech/language standpoint would be greatly compromised.

Individuals on the autism-spectrum almost universally have a biochemical imbalance in their methylation chemistry which Methyl-B12 helps to support. The problem is that many are not accessing their own body's stores of Methyl-B12 or the pathways that supports Methyl-B12 function are damaged and not working correctly. Hence the use of Methyl-B12 as a supplemental therapy (subcutaneous injection being the most ideal - discussed in detail in my book Methyl B12 for Autism: www.MethylB12forAutism.com ) is critical to help get individuals on the autism-spectrum back on track to improve their overall cognitive abilities, and for some on the road to eventual recovery.
