When a friend sent me this short video she said, “I bet you'll cry” and she was right. Even if you don't know anyone who is somewhere on the autism spectrum (don't we all though?), this will make your heart SO happy:
The implications go so far beyond just autistic kids, anyone who suspects a gut imbalance needs this probiotic: those with anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, kids with learning or behavior issues, chronic fungal infections, frequent illnesses, auto-immune disorders — all health problems are connected to an unhealthy gut, because that's where our immune system mostly resides.

It's all we take now, because I love knowing that it's the only kind of probiotic that gets past stomach acid all the way to the gut where it can actually do it's job. If you're curious and want to know more, keep reading for a little Q & A…
I got in touch with Shari, the Mom you heard from in the video, and asked her a few questions:
Me: I really was moved by the video about your son and how much he's improved, thank God! As a Mom too, that makes my heart so happy for your family!!!! I have a few questions for you if you don't mind…
1. It sounds like the probiotic was the main reason for Ian's health improvements, but in anticipation of what my readers may wonder after watching the video, was there anything else that you changed at about the same time as you started giving him this probiotic/antioxidant?
Shari: No – because we weren't sure if he was having seizures. I NEVER try more than one new supplement at a time. I come from a medical family and learned this early on.
2. How much did you give him, just one pill a day?
Shari: Yes, Just one capsule a day. The same time every day.
3. I know you said it dissolves nicely in liquids, is there any taste to it?
Shari: No taste! Yes, you can add it to hot and cold foods/drinks, as I said in the video, and you can cook with it too!
4. How long did it take before you saw his health improvements?
Shari: It was less than a week for things to begin to change.
5. Do you know anyone else who saw changes like you saw in Ian after starting out, friends who then tried it too and also saw health improvements?
Shari: Yes, too many to mention! I actually had an illness years ago which caused me to seek out the “best” probiotic for myself, as well as my son. After discovering this probiotic – I actually have more energy now. Which is good because I'm 50 years old! We knew that healing the gut was key in Ian's recovery. As you probably know – the gut is known as “the second brain” (the enteric nervous system). When the gut is healed – proper assimilation takes place and much needed nutrients are transported to where it needs to go. With a challenged gut – everything just moves through like a plane that has a direct flight with no layover!
Next I had a question for Tina, from the company who makes the probiotic…
Me: Can you elaborate on how heat *does not* harm all the beneficial stuff in this product?
Tina: The strains used are in spore form until they get into the intestines at which time they go into a vegetative cell state (where they become alive). When they are in spore form they are dormant which is why they don't get harmed by heat. In fact, that's how they have the ability to remain stable in the presence of antibiotics. When they sense a hostile environment (i.e. an antibiotic) , they go back into spore form.
Do you have any more questions? If so, ask in the comments and I'll track down answers for you!
