Nutrivene products- the foundation of Targeted Nutritional Intervention (TNI)
NUTRIVENE DAILY FORMULA
NuTriVene-D is the main supplement in the treatment of Down syndrome, and the one to start with. It was developed by a team of researchers and scientists. It’s purpose is to provide nutritional agents, such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids, in specific forms and amounts to help offset or manage several of the genes over-expressing in Trisomy 21/ Down syndrome.
“The Daytime Formula targets all the aberrant nutritional needs of kids with DS. It corrects the damage to the folate/methyl cycle caused by the over expression of the CBS gene. It provides all of the missing precursors for normal thyroid function. It provides nutrients found in low quantities necessary for immune response. It targets oxidative stress caused by the over expression of SOD1. There are there antioxidant enzymes in the oxidative triad that must be in levels sufficient to work in synergy. When they do not work, the cells fill up with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide then becomes the most deadly free radical known to man, the hydroxyl free radical. So, in addition to providing other antioxidants, Nutrivene Daytime Formula upregulates the two antioxidant enzymes that are NOT located on chromosome 21, Catalase and Glutathione Peroxidase and therefore far too low for the triad to function. But by up regulating them as much as possible, this triad functions much better. The Daytime Formula normalizes the child’s biochemistry as much as possible in the exact levels required.”

If you have an infant, start with the NuTriVene Daily Formula. It comes with dosage information, as dosage is based on the weight of your child. I recommend starting at 1/4 of the dose for your child, and gradually work up to the full dose. The full dose split into 2 doses a day ensures your child has better blood saturation of the product.
There are 2 other parts of NuTriVene, the NuTriVene Daily Enzymes and the NuTriVene NightTime Formula.
The NuTriVene enzymes are digestive enzymes. These help to break down food so that it is more easily digested, and nutrients are better absorbed and assimilated by the body. For infants, do not start this product until solids are introduced….however infants on formula may benefit from this product. Infants with acid reflux may have a worsening of reflux with this product. Dosage recommendations come with this product.
To use, you can open up the capsule and sprinkle into or onto food, until your child is old enough to swallow pills. Our webstore also carries some other digestive enzyme options, including a chewable one!
NuTriVene NightTime formula helps provide nutrients to support growth hormone and serotonin production.
Growth hormone can be deficient in people with T21. This product makes sure the nutrients are available for the pituitary gland to make growth hormone. The nutrients also help the body make serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can help with sleep, which is often low in children with T21/Ds. Tis will better aid children with Ds to get into REM sleep- which is crucial for growth and development. Dosage recommendations come with the product.
Please note that while all people with Trisomy 21 have genes that are over-expressing, each person still has an individual and unique biochemistry, and may be best served by working with a practitioner who specializes in TNI, to customize a specific protocol.
