Probiotics Reduce Stress & Anxiety

'For daily wellbeing' probiotic strains show potential for Stress - October 2010

Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 & Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, two of the probiotics in For every day, were demonstrated to be beneficial in an innovative new trial linking gut health and stress levels.  Published in the British Journal of Nutrition, this clinical trial found that the two probiotic strains are able to cause beneficial psychological effects in humans. ' These results provide further evidence that gut microflora play a role in stress, anxety and depression' the French scietinist reported.

Volunteers were administered with either the two For daily wellbeing probiotic strains, or a placebo, every day for 30 days, and then tested for stress and anxiety levels.  The probiotic group showed significant improvement in psychological distress, depression, anger-hostility and anxiety. L. acidophilus Rosell-52 was also shown to help improve sleep in elderly subjects.  Evidence in this area is preliminary, yet very promising!

Probiotics ease stress-related gut problems - January 2008

Leading probiotic firm, Lallemand, led a double-blind study which randomly assigned either probiotics or placebos to 75 volunteers from 18 to 60 years old. Participants who received probiotics Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 reported considerable reduction in abdominal pain and nausea or vomiting compared to participants in the control group. Authors of the study at the Institut Rosell commented that this probiotic supplement could act on the intestinal microflora, the epithelial barrier, and the immune system in order to improve gastrointestinal problems induced by stress.

Posted on Tuesday January 24, 2017

Back down to earth with a bump: the January detox and what alcohol does to the gut and liver
Posted on Friday January 06, 2017

If anything defines the seasonal period then it might be said to be indulgence. All that rich food, piled up on plate after plate and meal after meal. And, of course, all that alcohol too. Alcoholic consumption spikes at this time of year and, although there’s nothing wrong with having a good time and unwinding […]
