Patent "Prepare milk drink for autistic children " No. 27334
The autistic patient has metabolic problems and suffers from allergy to casein (source of milk and its products) and gluten (origin of wheat). Therefore, the doctor recommends not to use these products, which deprives them of the important nutritional value of these products because it is rich in its content of essential amino acids - Carbohydrates - Fat - Mineral elements such as calcium, magnesium and other important elements of body building at this stage Accordingly, the research team of the National Research Center (NRC) has been interested in preparing a milk drink for autistic children, rich in nutritional value such as natural milk and rich in omega-3 content (very important in building and developing the brain and used by doctors as therapeutic capsules). (25.4%), social communication (21.4%), deep sleep (7.14%), appetite for food (25%), visual communication (10.7%), and reduction of some of the characteristics Symptoms (extra nerve activity 25% - non-neuronal movements Frequent refractory 14.2% - neural 10.7%). It is advisable to take this drink not only for autistic children, but healthy children can eat it as well as all consumers in general (young, old), where it is rich in nutritional value and rich in omega-3 content.
