Review time. It is time to get real about all things autism. Supplements and other items are super expensive, but are they worth it? Here, I buy them and review them for you. This is not sponsored. Nobody has paid me for my opinion. I will present my view based on working with parents in 17 different countries so far and the science of autism. Okay, let’s review Bioray NDF Tummy.
I bought Bioray NDF Tummy and think it has great packaging. It’s really colorful. The box is super nice. Everything is cheerful and marketing is absolutely great.
They send free samples. They give you all these brochures and things like that to learn about their other products. I definitely always love free samples, but it is a little weird to get a sample when you’re buying supplements.
What does NDF Tummy do?
On their website, they have certain claims and they have claims on the box too. Their website says that NDF Tummy
- pushes bad bugs out of the gastrointestinal tract and bowel
- has naturally occurring trace minerals, vitamins, and chlorella
- has the first probiotic lysate liquid
- supports IgA and IgM for your immune system, and
- it safely removes heavy metals and chemicals.
The box claims that
- this remedy helps immune response in the GI tract,
- supports gut-brain connection,
- improves speech and communication, and
- decreases tummy issues.
There are asterisks along all of these claims, and it says ‘These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.’
Typical with supplements. Unless there’s some type of clinical trial, you have to be very careful about what you claim your product can do.
This sounds great, right? We would want that for our children. It’s like, Yes, click, I’ll buy for sure.
- probiotic lysates of maybe 10 or 12 common probiotics.
- lactobacillus Rhamnosus,
- Bifidobacterium Bifidum,
- Bifidobacterium Infantis. These are very common probiotics here.
- Micronized chlorella
What does it look like on the inside?
The directions are to take one millimeter per 50 pounds of body weight, one to two times per day. Okay, so what does it look like?
It is yellowish in color. I put one millimeter, in about four ounces of water, ballpark, and it definitely changes the color. It becomes more cloudy and a little yellow. It tastes kind of pleasant, but there definitely is a little bit of an aftertaste. It can grow on you, for sure. It’s fruity. I think it’s raspberry flavor. It’s not overpowering, but you can’t pass this off. It’s going to change the flavor.
Is this an opt or a drop?
Well, in the beginning, to have as something gentle, it’s definitely an opt to get the momentum going. One thing that is a big problem with probiotics, is starting too much too fast. This would be a really gentle way to introduce probiotics to your child. I would probably keep it on hand just because it’s a nice overall multistrain probiotic. That’s definitely useful at certain times in the autism journey.
The chlorella in here does detox, but when you really want to focus on detox, you want to use the detox element on its own. You might want to have just chlorella on hand, or there are also so many other detox elements.
It’s not for real advanced moves. If you wanted to increase a certain population of bacteria, this is not what I would recommend.
Some younger kids don’t know how to swallow pills, so this is a great liquid option for that as well.
The price is about $30, and it would last, I think, about 30 days. A month’s supply, $30 for probiotics. It’s reasonable.
This would be an opt in the beginning, and it certainly would be something that I would keep on hand, especially if my child couldn’t swallow pills. Or if your child likes the taste, then definitely keep it on hand. This would be a really great option for a general gentle multistrain. But in general, it’s an opt, but it’s not some super-special-oh-my-God-must-have.
