New Downs is a unique nutritional supplement formulated by a Naturopathic Doctor and a mother of a child with Down Syndrome.
“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” – Confucius.
Enhance Physical and Cognitive Growth To The Child’s Best Potential
New Downs is an antioxidant dietary supplement intended for individuals with Down Syndrome (DS). It is a complete vitamin mineral formula using high quality natural vitamins and minerals. The vitamin and minerals are more absorbent than any other formulations.
Methyl donor amino acids are added to the formulation to help quench the increased oxidative damage that occurs in individuals with DS.
New Downs nutritional supplement has the maximum amount of antioxidants specific for individuals with DS. Individuals with DS have a greater need for antioxidants due to the extra chromosome 21. This chromosome carries the gene for superoxide dismutase (SOD). When there are 3 copies of the SOD gene, there are more hydrogen peroxide molecules generated which the body can not handle. This leads to faster depletion of glutathione and other antioxidants. This leads to faster aging, decreased cognition, decreased growth, increased risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. An elevation of SOD activity interferes with the transport of protein. Which are needed for neurotransmitter and hormone production. Since neurotransmitter uptake plays an important role in many processes of the central nervous system, SOD gene-dosage may contribute to the neurobiological abnormalities of DS.

Increase growth to realize best potential height
Individuals with Down syndrome have a separate growth chart. The shorter height may be due to decreased thyroid function and/or poor intake or poor absorption of nutrition. When a good quality nutritional supplement, such as New Downs is incorporated into a dietary regime, growth can realize it’s full potential.
Support complete digestive system
Digestive issues are common in people with Down syndrome. The symptoms can be constipation, weight gain or food intolerances. The high quality of ingredients in this formulation ensures that the supplement is easily absorbed by the digestive system. Once these nutritional supplements are absorbed, they can be delivered to the organ system that require them.
Boost immune system defenses
Upper respiratory tract infections and ear infections are common in individuals with Down syndrome. Immune supporting nutrients such as: vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and carotenoids will provide the necessary tools to the immune system to help prevent and treat these infections.
Accelerate cognitive development
Intellect, speech, social skills are all aspects of cognition. DHA, EPA, phosphatidylcholine and TMG have been shown to enhance aspects of cognition.
Enhance nervous system
Gross motor, fine motor and speech are all aspects of the nervous system. Nutrients that support the nervous system, are 5-MTHF, methylcobalamin, zinc, magnesium, DHA and EPA are an integral part of the New Downs formulation.
