I am based in Pakistan and want to know how to make Brocolli Seed Sprout extract and how much dose is to be used for My Autustic son aged 10.5 years. Alternately where I can I get readymade Brocolli Seed Sprout Extract.

01 Nov 2018
hello Bilal best places on the internet buy supplements are iherb , vitacost ,or possibly even ebay . BUT if you want the best way to give to your son you can buy the organic seeds of broccoli and sprout them alone and feed them to him .
also some coconut oil and astragalus are generally good for autism and its a good idea to take a good quality food based multivitamin and minerals are also very important make sure he has enough of potassium magnesium selenium sulfur iodine and some sea salt (or pink himalayan salt ).

Hi, my son (14 years old) has autism- with delayed speech, drooling, slow movement and eyes problem. As at now, he has no body deformation. The major issue is with the brain. He can't do any activities by himself. Kindly recommend best combination of herbs to help him completely overcome mental and nervous disorders.
