ASD patients are at high risk for microbiome imbalances where fiber metabolism produces abnormally high amounts of the short chain fatty acid, Propionic Acid and insufficient levels of beneficial Butyric Acid.* High levels of Propionate cross the gut-blood-brain barrier creating a toxic environment impacting brain development and function.* GI symptoms from this imbalance can overlap with ASD symptoms such as alterations in behavior, cognition, language impairment and sleep disturbance.
AuRx® effectively replenishes the inadequate Butyric Acid supplies, thereby reducing Propionic Acid production and toxicity supporting gut-brain balance.*
