Benefiting Mental Health
Our microbiome-gut-brain axis is related to a variety of physical, mental, and neurological conditions and disorders. Certain bacteria within our gut microbiome can yield specific mental health benefits. They are referred to as psychobiotics.
Research into the benefits and mechanisms of pyschobiotics is quickly progressing, and this group of probiotics is a safe option for those with refractory diseases and for maintaining mental wellbeing.
Psychobiotic clinical trials have shown positive outcomes for symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety, autism, Parkinson’s disease, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, cognitive disorders, Tourette syndrome, and more.
For the Mind...
Probiotics have commonly been used to aid digestion, immunity, and metabolism. Recently, psychobiotics such as PS128 have expanded these indications to include nervous function and mental health.
Scientific evidence has shown taking Lactobacillus plantarum PS128 can benefit mood, behavioral disorders, and neuromuscular function. Its mechanisms of action are thought to include modulation of dopamine, serotonin, BDNF, and cortisol levels.
In addition, PS128 may improve athletic performance and recovery, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy immune and gastrointestinal function, resulting in benefits to those with irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive conditions.
PS128 has been patented in the EU, the US, Japan, South Korea, China, and Taiwan.
