D M G - can decrease seizures in autistic children

Human and animal studies have shown potentially DMG can strengthen the immune system which is commonly malfunctioning in many autistic children, with an added benefit of potential decrease in seizure activity with the use of DMG. 5
While two studies reported no improvement with the use of DMG, one of these studies used only half the recommended dosage.

A more recent human double blind placebo controlled study involving 84 autistic children reported a significant reduction in many autistic symptoms including behaviour problems. 6

A similar product called TMG has been used by parents of autistic children very good results however there has been no published reports are studies on TMG. Essentially TMG is a precursor to DMG which then further breaks down to Sam E which is sometimes used to treat disorders such as depression.
