Often, customers remark how Autism Coach supplements work better than comparable products by other manufacturers. We carefully select products that have the highest quality ingredients and avoid products containing potentially harmful preservatives, additives, flowing agents, and fillers.

Sometimes, in conversation, a customer will indicate that a supplement hasn't worked for them or their child in a past. Unfortunately, the lack of effectiveness may not be due to the active ingredient, but due to the inferior quality of a cheaper raw material used by a particular manufacturer, the potentially harmful additives that are included either as flavor enhancers, binders, stabilizers, fillers or by-products, or that the active ingredients themselves are diluted to save money and there is less of them per dose than is stated on the label (which is illegal, but has been found consistently when supplements are subjected to laboratory tests through consumer organizations).

For example, we carefully developed our first iteration of Liquid Carnosine Plus over a two-year period. Many candidates for the raw materials were rejected because they contained manufacturing by-products such as high levels of heavy metals (such as arsenic and lead), carcinogenic solvents (such as toulene), and hidden fillers (such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein - which by law may also contain MSG - which is considered neuro-toxic by many in the autism community). Needless to say, these by-products were consistently found in the cheaper, inferior versions of the raw materials that many manufacturers use to keep costs down and profit margins up. And needless to say, Liquid Carnosine Plus contains only the more expensive and purest ingredients.

Also, as an aside, some products that indicate they are soy or corn free, may be actually derived from soy or corn, but the soy or corn proteins have been filtered to the point that the manufacturers consider them soy or corn free. Unfortunately, some sensitive individuals within the autism spectrum may still react to these ingredients. For example, Xanthan gum, commonly used as a binder in many liquid supplements claiming to be free of corn, actually is a corn derivative. Also, any product with "natural flavors" or "natural flavoring" on the label is likely to contain gluten as forms of gluten are used as drying agents for virtually all flavorings.
