Combined Vitamin B6-Magnesium Treatment in Autism Spectrum Disorder

By Nye, Chad; Brice, Alejandro

Summary

This online abstract summarizes a research review conducted to determine whether taking supplements of Vitamin B6 (combined with magnesium to reduce side effects) improves the behavior of children with autism. Results of the studies in the review were inconclusive. As such, the authors do not support the use of Vitamin B6 as an autism intervention.
