Calocal D3/Pluss D3 (Vitamin D3)
Recuperative role of Vitamin D3 in autism spectrum disorder
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder of neurons, occurred as result of intricate interaction between genetic and environmental risk factors. Amid the environmental factors, vitamin D3 (cholecaliferol) appears to exhibit a significant role in the etiology of ASD, as it is essential for the development of brain. Vitamin D3 in reduced concentrations results in increased brain size, altered brain shape, and enlarged ventricles. Researchers have suggested that all these changes have been observed in patients with ASD. Vitamin D3 is transformed into a steroid; 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 in the liver. Elevated serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 can reduce the risk of autism.
