Hard-to-Find but Commonly Needed Hypoallergenic Supplements

Many of our children with pediatric-onset symptoms of depression, schizophrenia, schizoaffective, bipolar, OCD, ADHD and autistic-spectrum have biological problems requiring nutritional supplements. But these same children often have food sensitivities to some ingredients commonly found in these supplements.

My younger daughter cannot consume gluten/wheat, dairy (casein), eggs, or soy.  She is also allergic to propylene glycol. Finding some supplements without these ingredients are difficult. We found that even if gluten or soy is not listed as an ingredient, it does not mean there is no gluten or soy in that product!
