Research says yes! Two recent ground breaking studies have shown that certain PROBIOTIC bacterias have powerful mood lifting effects. L. helveticus, B. longum and L. casei were the probiotics that were found to have a profound effect on the brain. According to Michael Messaoudi, Ph.D., lead author in one of the studies, “Probiotics decrease the protein molecules that cause psychological distress.” Within two months of taking these probiotics 73 percent of the women in the study were less anxious, slept better, felt calmer, less depressed and were better able to cope with life.
The issue….. Yogurts do not have these strains of probiotics….. But Nature’s Way to the rescue. “Nature’s Way Primadophilus Opitma” has all three in one pill. One pill, two months…. Worth a try for better brain health!
