Fiber for Autism?

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

In addition to a recent video podcast about autism and nourishing the gut-brain-axis, I did an interview with NewsMax about a similar topic.

Parents ask me all the time about WHAT fibers they can buy and WHERE they can find them.

The specific prebiotic fibers that were used in the recent autism clinical trials used BiMuno GOS (galacto-oligo-saccharide) or SunFiber (galactomannan) – and two products from Amare Global contain BOTH BiMuno and SunFiber (MentaBiotics and Kids FundaMentals).

Obviously, there is a lot more happening with autism spectrum disorders than “just” a lack of prebiotic fiber – but this new research is making new tools available to combine with other lifestyle interventions and help move us all in the right direction.
