Kirkman® is pleased to offer this comprehensive nutritional supplement that incorporates a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional factors.  Many parents find it difficult to give their child a multitude of different supplements daily or several times a day, and other parents are unsure of which nutritional supplement regimen to follow. Some parents may be waiting for laboratory or physician's reports that will eventually be a guide to a supplement program.  In this case, a broad-spectrum dietary supplement is suggested in the interim.  Spectrum Complete™ Powder helps solve all of these issues .

Spectrum Complete™ II also offers an alternative to Kirkman's Super Nu-Thera® product line that contains higher dosages of vitamin B-6.  Some children do not respond to the high B-6 or to Super Nu-Thera®, in general, but those individuals still need a very comprehensive, high quality supplement.  Spectrum Complete™ fills that role with nutrients in highly absorbable forms.  Those parents who want to use Spectrum Complete™ and who also want higher B-6 levels can supplement with additional B-6 or pyridoxal 5-phosphate.

Summarizing the above discussion, Spectrum Complete™ II should find valuable application in the following situations:

     •  Parents new to supplementation who want to start with one comprehensive product.
     •  Compliance situations where parents find it very difficult to get multiple supplements into their children.

     •  When parents are awaiting laboratory and/or physician's reports to guide them in setting up a supplement

     •  When high vitamin B-6 products such as Super Nu-Thera® are not effective.

     •  As a comprehensive foundation to supplementation, to which other products can be added per testing results
        or a doctor's instructions.

     •  As an alternative to less complete products being offered by other supplement companies.

What are the unique properties of Spectrum Complete™ II and what are the ingredients that make it so comprehensive?
Spectrum Complete™ contains all of the B-vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins, and minerals children require.  Other specialty nutrients are also present.  Some of the unique potencies, ingredients and properties of Spectrum Complete™ are:

     •  A full spectrum of immune system supporting ingredients, including vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium,
        coenzyme Q10, and beta glucan.

     •  Pro-vitamin A from mixed carotenoids, as well as the regular standard form, vitamin A acetate.  These mixed
        carotenoids consist of beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthan, which are powerful antioxidants and free radical
        scavengers.  It is important to also include a substantial amount of non-carotenoid vitamin A, such as the

     •  In addition to beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthan, the powerful antioxidants coenzyme Q10 and grapeseed
        extract are present.

     •  Choline, which is essential in the manufacture of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

     •  Inositol, taurine and glycine, which are required for liver support.  Inositol is also necessary for proper nerve,
        brain, and muscle function.
     •  Taurine and glycine help maintain the neurotransmitters in the brain and produce a calming effect on the
     •  Glycine is needed by the body to stimulate glutathione production.
     •  Molybdenum, which is important in sulfur metabolism and may help support the PST system.  Molybdenum
        may also be important in supporting healthy copper levels.

     •  Selenium, which is included for its immune system supporting properties

     •  Chromium picolinate, which is included as a chromium source.

     •  DMAE, which is included to aid in focusing.

     •  Higher vitamin B-12 potencies are present.  Since vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble nutrient that does not
        accumulate to toxic levels in the body, Kirkman® feels this higher level of B-12 is warranted.

Will I need to use any other supplements with Spectrum Complete™ II ?
This depends on your child, your child's diet, and the nutritional regimen agreed upon with your child's physician.  Individuals on a casein free diet will require extra calcium to bring daily intakes up to 800-1000 mg. daily.
Kirkman® does not include any herbal components in Spectrum Complete™ II.  Though some herbs do have a place in supplementation, clinical studies are incomplete.  Additionally, since herbs are natural products grown in varying environmental conditions, the potential for certain individuals to be sensitive to a given herb is too great, in our opinion.  We feel herbs should be supplemented on an individual basis.
How much should I take/give?
We recommend the following:
 Children 20-25 lbs                1/2 teaspoon daily
 Children 26-60 pounds         1 teaspoon daily
 Children 61-75 pounds         1 1/2 teaspoons daily
 Children 76-120 pounds       2 teaspoons daily
 Larger children and adults     2 1/2-3 teaspoons daily
