The article on the Huffington Post reported the findings from a study conducted at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) involving mice who had been bred specifically to have autism-like symptoms. These mice, when treated with probiotic therapy, “were more communicative, less anxious and less likely to engage in repetitive digging behavior.” Furthermore, these mice were found to have “leaky” gastrointestinal tracts. The probiotics helped correct this issue as well.

Probiotic Action spokesperson Fernando Perez says that these findings are remarkable but urges the same caution that the Caltech researchers did. He says, “It’s not surprising that probiotics can help treat a myriad of ailments, including autism. While there is a great deal more research to be done, these findings are incredibly encouraging. Autism is an incredibly complex condition, and treating the spectrum effectively will be a complex process.”

Perez remains optimistic though, saying, “Probiotic Action utilizes probiotics for acne treatment as we believe it to be the best acne treatment available but who knows? In 10 or 20 years, we could hear about using probiotics for treating autism.”

Probiotic Action, a pioneer in natural skin care treatments, follows all probiotic-associated products to collect information in order to help educate the public on the power of probiotics for skin care and overall health. For more information, please visit
