Vitamin C reduces symptoms of autism

Vitamin C
One double blind 10 week trial reported excellent results in reduction of symptom severity with the use of 1 gram of vitamin C for every 20 lbs. of body weight. It may be that this positive benefit was a result of the well understood affects vitamin C has on a hormonal pathway typically damaged in autistic children. One side effect to be on the lookout for when using high dosage vitamin C is an increased potential for diarrhea. 7
