I found this article interesting tho it doesn't mention adhd. I have been skeptical of claims surrounding gut biome mostly because they have sounded so snake oily. However, there has been research done now, I do not know how rigorous that sounds a bit promising.

People eager to make money and have sycophants have created all manner of snake-oil media messages about the gut biome, but indeed, it is real, and rigorous, peer-reviewed clinical research is revealing how so—minus mysticism, pseudo-science, and other such claptrap.

I eat a lot of yogurt, and I’ll leave it at that. The less sugar, and the more live active cultures, the better.

And FWIW, The Atlantic is a fine publication, and not one wont to publish junk.


Thanks,

Wow, that's fascinating. I don't tend to eat yogurt because with the slight exception of the Greek stuff it's just like a vehicle for carbs and, well, I have the diabeetus. That being said, bagels aren't exactly low-cal and that is now my normal breakfast, so... maybe I'll switch out for a few weeks and see...

Certain probiotics are excellent. You pay for them.

There are other low carb alternatives. You'd have to make your own saurkraut but that's loaded with gut biome stuff. Look up probiotics and see what you can find
