Many have artificial colors and preservatives. We buy ours thru Neurobiologix . Com . These are designed by a leading brain specialist . They are pharmaceutical. Grade the best you can buy without a prescription.

My son is on a few different vitamins, but not for his Autism.  He has Cystic Fibrosis, and he takes Aquadek (vitamins A, D, E, and K...the vitamins found in fats) because he is pancreatic insufficient and doesn't digest the fat in foods. He also takes Vitamin D.   Both come from a pharmacy though.  Good luck!

We make sure our supplements are VERY clean. The last thing we want is to give them a healthy supplement that has something that would cause issues in their little bodies. We buy from Whole Foods, Klaire Labs/ProThera, Amazon (for very specific brands that are cheaper there), and Enymedica.com for Digest Gold.

I get some right from Violet's dan doctor, other ones I get from a local health food store (you do need to read every label, some contain dairy, gluten or soy, even some decent brands) and I order Neuroprotek from their Amazon store. Nordic Naturals is a great brand for fish oil.  If you had to pick one place to order stuff from, it would be Kirkman Labs, its very high quality and geared to autism. It would take me ages to get stuff from Kirkmans, because I'm in Canada, but I bet if you're in the US it would be quick.
