Fragile X Syndrome
This genetic condition causes intellectual disability, behavioral and learning challenges and various physical characteristics. In certain cases, it can be associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Our Natural Health Sciences Research & Development Laboratory’s highest priority research project is dedicated to discovering more ways in which nutrition may benefit people with Fragile X Syndrome.
Building on more than two decades of human clinical studies — such as a major double-blind trial at the Children’s Hospital, Denver, details of which were published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics in 1986 and which found that there were significant improvements in Fragile X children who had taken folic acid rather than a placebo — our R&D Lab strives to contribute to such life-changing discoveries.
Pharma Natural has developed a new dietary supplement product named Formula X4 that may reduce hyperactive behavior and improves social abilities in children affected with X syndrome. Based on targeted demographics, we are working with a community in Colombia where the X syndrome is prevalent to aid symptoms and improve lives.
