Study Shows Probiotics May Alleviate Symptoms of Autism and ADHD
The importance of healthy gut bacteria for healthy immunity and healthy brain function is crucial. Pregnant women must not only eat nutritious food, but those that are especially low in sugars and processed carbohydrates. Foods high in sugar and processed carbohydrates will reduce the number of good bacteria in the gut , bacteria that fight off infection and keep the brain healthy too. The growing baby is directly affected by the mother’s diet and, of course, by his own diet throughout his life.
Believe it or not, the bacteria in the gut dictates much of the brain’s ability to function at optimum capacity. In the third trimester of pregnancy, the fetus is especially susceptible to the invasion of bad bacteria which causes issues such as candida or yeast overgrowth and is now shown in studies to be linked to autism and ADHD.
A new study shows how taking probiotics can alleviate the symptoms of autism and ADHD by building the good, healthy bacteria in the gut. This allows both the body and brain to function better, alleviating symptoms such as anxiety, aggression, headaches, stomachaches, cognitive abilities, and much more.
One of the high quality probiotics that I like best is Dr. Ohhira’s from Essential Formulas. They are small softgels that can be punctured and squeezed out for children who cannot swallow pills. The company Pharmax also makes a great product for babies called HLC Neonate that comes in a powder form just for infants and small children.
I address this issue in detail in my book, Naturally Recovering Autism.
