Recommended Nature’s Sunshine Products
I highly recommend Nature’s Sunshine Products for anyone with Autism. It’s helped my daughter immensely. The three products listed below are the ones I suggest to start with:
- Assists in the digestion of all types of food, with the exception of dairy.
- Protease is the enzyme that digests protein; amylase digests carbohydrates and lipase digests lipids (fats).
- Pancreatin is necessary for protein, lipid and carbohydrate digestion.
- Mycozyme metabolizes carbohydrates.
- Bromelain, pepsin, and betaine HCl all help break down protein.
- Bile salts assist the digestion of lipids.
How It Works:
These enhance the digestive process, with the additional support of natural food enzymes, by supplementing the natural production of hydrochloric acid, bile salts and digestive enzymes.
Each tablet contains:
Protease activity* 300,000 units
Amylase activity* 30,000 units
Lipase activity* 1,500 units
*From: Pancreatin (180 mg), mycozyme (90 mg), bromelain (50 mg), papain (45 mg), lipase (15 mg).
Also contains pepsin (200 mg), betaine HCl (162 mg), and bile salt (40 mg).
As an aid in the digestion of food, use one or two tablets during or after meals.

How It Works:
Probiotics, commonly called “friendly bacteria”, are live microorganisms that exert
many beneficial health effects. They provide essential functions in the body and help maintain our overall health. But factors such as stress, environmental conditions, poor diet or use of antibiotics can affect the natural balance of these friendly microbes.
Probiotic 11 contains 11 strains of important, gut-beneficial organisms for promotion
of gut health and immune functions. This product is recommended to populate the
intestinal tract with a variety of beneficial microorganisms that may be removed in
colon cleansing or after times of intestinal stress.
Medicinal: Each capsule contains the friendly bacteria
Lactobacillus rhamnosus 800 million; Bifidobacterium bifidum 600 million; L. Acidophilus 600 million; L. plantarum 600 million; B. infantis 400 million; B. longum 400 million; L. casei 400 million; L. salivarius 400 million.
Non-medicinal: gelatin capsule (gelatin, water), inulin, fructooligosaccharides (FOS), Lactobacillus bulgaricus 600 million; Streptococcus thermophilus 600 million; L. helveticus 600 million; magnesium stearate (vegetable source)
NOTE: Due to a labelling requirement from Health Canada, L. Bulgaricus, S. thermophilus and L. helveticus are listed in the non-medicinal ingredients. They are in fact three of the 11 active species of probiotics in this formulation.
(Adults, adolescents, and children older than 1 year): Take 1 to 2 capsules once per day. Take with a meal.
Risk Information: Do not use if you are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea or severe abdominal pain. Do not use if you have an immune-compromised condition (e.g. AIDS, lymphoma, patients undergoing long-term corticosteroid treatment).
