PS128 helps balance dopamine, serotonin, BDNF, cortisol, as well as other molecules via the microbiota-gut-brain axis. Imbalance of these neurotransmitters and hormones can affect our mental health, impair neurodevelopment, or allow neurodegeneration. PS128 has been shown in studies to ameliorate or even reverse many related harmful conditions.

A component of traditional fermented Taiwanese mustard greens, the Lactobacillus plantarum strain PS128 was isolated in 2007. Professor Ying-Chieh Tsai's research team at National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan tested nearly 1000 types of lactobacilli before discovering it. Preclinical models first proved PS128's psychobiotic properties, and now clinical studies are confirming its benefits to humans.
