      Why the Vita-Spectrum capsules instead of the powder? Just curious 🙂 We have been using Brainchild for 2+ years now, and I would love to save money, but also want to be certain we’re getting similar benefits. I haven’t compared the labels yet. Thanks!

      just one more question — will you give an update on how you get all these in? what do you mix them with, etc…? thanks!

      I went with the VitaSpectrum Capsules instead of the powder to make things easier. Also, I tried the capsules to see if they dissolved in water and it worked just great (some had reported it was chalky – I found it was not chalky at all) – the powder version does have more calcium than the capsules – I will try the powder version in the future the next time I order.

    4. Mom says:

      Honestly, I got tired of spending over a $100 bucks a month on a multi vitamin/mineral. With all of my son’s other supplements, we just don’t have that kind of money anymore.
      If I had seen any change in my son from the switch, I would have gone back to brainchild, but it’s been almost 2 months and I have not. I did add some additional b-12 in since it was higher in the brainchild – but since my son is on daily mb-12 shots, I’m not sure that was even necessary.

    5. Mom says:

      I mix them with water and pear juice. The taste difference from the brainchild to the vitaspectrum was completely obvious by the way my son started sucking everything down. I taste everything I add into his mix – that way I know what I have to start slow (based on taste) and what I can just add right in.

      regarding your CoQ10 note — we use Metagenics NanoCell-Q, which our DAN started us on, but now I order it from ourASDkids.com. It’s liquid, orange-flavored, and mixes in just fine, Ethan will drink it straight. here’s a link… http://www.ourkidsasd.com/products/1704%7CNanoCell-Q™-Metagenics

    7. Mom says:

      Thanks a bunch… will have to look into this one more. Not sure if I can do it because of the fructose though — but thanks!

    8. Summer says:

      Michelle, can you help me understand the benefits of dosing both CLO and Omega 3-6-9? Also, have you considered Nordic Natural’s CLO with added Vitamin D (1,000 IU), and if so you must feel the Carlson’s Vitamin D is a better choice?

      thanks!
      Summer

    9. Summer says:

      Michelle, just read the study on Nordic Natural’s site regarding Omega 3-6-9…. enough said! Just placed an order!

      Originally, I started with the Nordic Naturals stawberry kids CLO and when he did well on that, I switched to the NN Complete Omega 369 and have used this ever since because we’ve seen good results with it.
      Then, I added the High Vitamin CLO from Green Pasture because the A is natural and not synthetic, like the mycellized A’s are. So, in adding the CLO, I was able to reduce the amount of NN 369. The only reason I am giving Nicholas additional A (in the mycellized form) is because we are doing the high dose Vitamin A protocol. So he gets one drop of the mycellized A on top of one tsp of the High Dose CLO.

      I did look into the CLO with D, but ratio of DHA/EPA are reversed in what Nicholas gets. That one has higher DHA over EPA and the Complete has Higher EPA over DHA.
      Next time around, I may try either the Ultimate Omega or the Arctic D-CLO and see how that goes. (A while back, I ran out of the NN Complete 369 and could not find anyone with it in stock, so while I was waiting for it to arrive, I tried one with the opposite epa/dha ratio and Nicholas didn’t do as well on that. I do think that as things change, we have to try new supplements and see if there isn’t something that would work better, which is why I’ll order something different for next time and see what happens.)
      I hope that helps!!

      Hi Michelle!
      Can you help me to understand here what should be the best type of Enzymes for my little one? My son is allergic to Dairy & Soy [and I will say to any grain protein in general]…..If he eats too much garbanzos or quinoa he gets the same type of rash like he does get with soy it’s horrible!.. this rash more type of pimple leaves marks on his skin!…..
      Even tho he is on GF/CF/SF diet and not allergic to Wheat/gluten I would like him to eat gluten again [since he doesn’t get any rash or any kind of issues with it]….but I do think he needs enzymes, Would you help me to think which kind would be safe & the best for him…..sorry to bother I know you have you own things to worry……just let me know when ever you have a change!..
      Take care and keep up the Good WORK!
      🙂

      Vanessa, Are you absolutely sure he doesn’t have an allergy to gluten??
      I like the enzymes from Houston’s Enzymes and also from enzymedica. If you call Houston’s – they are great and can answer any questions you might have. I know they also have web-casts from time to time as well, so you can look into one of those. Both Houston and Enzymedica will send you samples as well. You can email Alessanra from Enzymedica as well: milagros205 at yahoo
