There is an ingredient which is found in vegetables such as broccoli which can actually help kids with autism and it is called Sulforaphane. With a disturbing rate of 1 out of 45 children having this condition, we are open to anything that will help especially when it is holistic. This compound is found to help with verbal skills and overall communication which is lacking with this disease. A study conducted over the period of 18 weeks in autistic people ranging from 13-27 and treated with this natural compound showed a high percent of positive functions. So this approach should be on everybody’s radar. Other compounds in natural foods are being studied and considered as well.
- Sulforaphane is a natural compound found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli.
- Recent research indicates that consuming large amounts of this phytochemical can improve the symptoms associated with children’s autism.
- Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) showed that eating foods rich in sulforaphane can enhance the social skills, ability to verbally communicate, and general behavior of children.
“This steady spike in the number of autistic children has been linked with the similarly increasing schedule of vaccination, with each new vaccine shot adding a fresh batch of toxins that damage the nervous system.”
