Last week your featured article was about gut health and the importance of good nutrition. I found it very informative, and have been meaning to look at probiotic options for our family. Do you have any favorite probiotics that you recommend to families?

I’m so glad you found Erin’s article helpful! Healthy bodies are essential for healthy brain development, and we all can benefit from improved physical health and wellness. There are many excellent probiotic products available in the marketplace. One brand that we like and recommend is Theralac by Master Supplements. You can get either the capsule form or a children’s powder form. These are medical-grade products that we have found to work very well for our clients and our own personal families. You can find Master Supplements online at http://www.master-supplements.com. Remember that it is a good idea to rotate probiotics periodically so you get the benefits of multiple strains and amounts of various good bacteria. We have found the Master Supplements company to provide excellent customer service as well, which is always a bonus. I hope you find a probiotic product that works well for your family, as this can be an important component of treatment for Autism, help for ADHD, and supporting other neurodevelopmental disorders!
