My sons natural immunity was very less and used to be on courses of antibiotics twice every month. Then after reading through forums and many remedies I tried for my son failed, I tried this. My son was regularly consuming this for 6 months. During this period he never caught the flues even when others around him fell sick. I think OLE helped his body with necessary immunity to fight illness. Then recently I became a bit careless in restocking it. Busy with my new job he went without it for a week. We fell sick. Then he caught the flu from us and then came the fever with very very dried up lips. I had few days ago quickly ordered this again from iherb(when we had fallen sick). and thankfully it arrived in my home in 5 days(i stay in India). On the night of the 3rd day of his fever i started giving him this again. On the 4th day also the fever was there. but we were surpressing this with crocin. on the 5th day there was no fever, but however after our families advice we took him to the doctor. the doctor suggested 3 bloodtests- For dengue, malaria and typhoid. The antibodies came out very high for dengue which meant that the recent fever was due to dengue. but since he was not sick at that time the doctor told us to manage it at home, and asked us to bring him to casuality when we see some warning signs. We took blood tests twice for platelet count and in the second it had increased.. The doc said that now he is out of danger as his platelet count had started increasing.... When I heard all the cases of dengue around me , many many had got dengue,,, some succumbed to it, some were hospitalised and took a long long time to recover.. when I see my son, who in a week, was back to his active self, without the need for being hospitalised,,,,,,, I strongly feel that second to God, its Barleans OLE which I have thank... I will never be without it again for a while..

I got this for my 3.1 year old son who has got lot of floating stools which I heard are related to fat indigestion. I started with 100 mcg of this once a day and now he is on about 250 mcg of this once a day for the last 1 week. For the past few days, he is absorbing words and songs very quickly even though he has heard it only once. I attribute it to after starting this supplement. He still cannot pronounce a certain sounds properly like "k", "l", "v", but I'll wait for a couple of more months to see if it helps with his apraxia also.
My son has multiple food intolerances and an extremely sensitive gut. So this is a must have for him. Its saved many a days. I am never without it at home or eatouts.

I wanted to get a protein powder for my son as a morning beverage and since life time kids was out of stock at that time, I thought I would give this a try after reading good reviews. The label states 4 spoons to get 15 gms of protein. But 2 scoops itself is too detoxifying and the insoluble fiber in the hemp caused digestive issues even when used with enzymes. 1 spoon of the hemp powder is fine, but that contains less protein, so it has to be mixed with another protein powder like rice for the extra protein. And anyone in India, don't buy this, hemp supplements can alert the Indian customs and we all know what happens when things get stuck at our customs..........I got this after countless phone calls to DHL and finally a detailed explanation to the customs and after 3 weeks of waiting period. Not worth it!.
I give this twice a week for my son with a teaspoon of demerara sugar and 2 scoops of stevia. He eats it without any protest. Good fiber and protein content.
This is a good sweetener. Its not bitter but it does leave an after taste. But my son has no issue drinking the green juice I make when this is added.

The ingredient mix in this protein powder is good. It contains calcium, magnesium, efas with the aminos which are essential for childs growth. Most of the gfcf protein powders are not kid friendly - ie they either contain only the aminos , or aminos+efas, but dont have the extra calcium, magnesium. Its too early for me to say if it helped my sons growth since he has been using it since only 2 weeks. Initially when I gave it it seemed to give him loose floating stools. He is a gut sensitive kid. When I gave him this with enzymes there was no such problem. The texture is grainy and the taste is a bit heavy, but he seems to be ok with it. I give this to him first thing when he gets up in the morning.
