Next time you’re feeling low – instead of reaching for that box of chocolates – you might want to grab a handful of lactobacilli. Research has found that probiotics containing that particular strain of bacteria may help boost your mood!
Certain bacteria like lactobacilli and bifidobacteria can act as neurotransmitters between your gut and your brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that help your nerves communicate with the rest of your body. This can have positive results on your mental health. Studies in mice show that gut flora – all that bacteria that lives in your intestines – is linked to the amount of serotonin (a feel-good chemical) in the blood stream; this directly affects your mood and mental well-being.
