People have as many as 100 trillion bacteria in the intestines, forming an ecosystem of friendly and harmful bacteria and yeast. A number of conditions, including ASD, are associated with imbalances in the gut’s bacterial “village.” Probiotics, or “good” bacteria, are a natural way to restore the balance of friendly bacteria in the gut. Studies have proven their usefulness in helping relieve food allergies and treating inflammatory bowel disease. Many parents of children with autism have reported vast improvements in their children’s behavior with the use of probiotic supplements.
Quality is particularly critical with probiotics due to shelf life, purity and potency concerns. The Autism Community Store carries only the highest quality probiotics, which are kept under constant refrigeration. In addition to the quality probiotics available through our website, we carry other premium brands, available only in our store.
