Spectrum Support II comes in two varieties: the original formula (P5P), and this formula here, the Spectrum Support II with PAK.
P5P and PAK are two different forms of the vitamin B6, a crucial nutrient for those on the spectrum.
The ONLY difference between the two forms of Spectrum Support II is that the original P5P form contains the active P5P (pyridoxal-5-phosphate) form of vitamin B6, and the PAK form contains the pyridoxine alpha ketoglutarate (PAK) form of vitamin B6 instead.
Pyridoxine must be converted to P5P for the body to use it, which means that the body gets several times as much effective vitamin B-6 per milligram of P5P than it does from PAK or other pyridoxine forms.
As you may have read, vitamin B6 can be extremely helpful to many children. However, depending on the individual child’s readiness to absorb nutrients and unique body chemistry, some can take P5P with excellent results, and others do better starting out with the less-active PAK form and working up to P5P if appropriate as their bodies can utilize it better. If your child is in the early stages of treatment, or if you do not know if they tolerate vitamin B-6 well, we suggest starting out with Spectrum Support with PAK, and working up to the P5P formula gradually. You can also purchase trial sizes of both formulas, and see which one seems to be the best fit.
