Probiotic Strains May Modulate Brain Processing

Could Specific Probiotic Strains Modulate Brain Processing and Connectivity?

Research show how probiotic strains modulate brain processing and connectivity The interconnection between the gut microbiome and brain interactions for neurotransmitter expression, neurodevelopment, and behavior is a relatively new area of science. Rodent studies abound, which supports the basic level of knowledge that multi-strain probiotics can influence this connectivity, however human studies are limited. This study elevates the foundation of knowledge by lending greater understanding to whole-brain functionality and structural

David Scheiderer MD on Stress and the Microbiome

The science is growing showing that meta-inflammation and dysbiosis, may be linked to dysfunction of the gut-brain axis and thus affect mental health. It all comes down to stress and the microbiome. In this video presentation, from our partners at Holistic Primary Care, integrative psychiatrist, David Scheiderer, MD, reviews the science showing how medications, lifestyle and diet impact the gut-brain axis. He explains how gastrointestinal health, systemic inflammation and neuroinflammation

Multi-strain Probiotics May Lower Endotoxin Levels and Cardiometabolic Markers in Diabetics

Could probiotics decrease endotoxin levels and other cardiometabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)? This study set out to assess whether multi-strain probiotic supplementation could reduce endotoxin levels and consequently improve cardiometabolic profiles in metabolically-high risk populations. This 6-month, single-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial included 150 adult Saudi Arab participants [73 females (46 (63%) menopause), 77 males, aged 30–60 years old] with newly diagnosed T2DM. Of

Probiotics and Gut Microbiome Trigger Emotion and Mood Brain Signatures

Can probiotics alter the gut microbiome to shift emotion and mood brain signatures? The gut microbiota-brain axis plays an important role in gastrointestinal function and the regulation of mood, anxiety, and pain by communicating with the brain. Most studies have used animal models, however the following is a human double-blind study. This study provides multidimensional evidence that administration of a multi-strain probiotic (the probiotic studied is available in the United

Multi-Species Probiotics and Multi-drug Resistance Gram-Negative Bacteria

Drug resistance among the elderly is common, particularly for residents in long-term care facilities. Multi-species probiotics may provide a solution for patients prone to repeated infections because of multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria. ABSTRACT/ Residents in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) are frequently colonized by multi-drug resistant gram-negative bacteria, putting them at risk for subsequent infections. The researchers aimed to evaluate the effect of the multispecies probiotic (available in the United States

Scientific Review on Immunity and the Microbiome, a Symbiotic Partnership

When referring to immunity and the microbiome, the science often focuses on how the microbiota promote and calibrate all aspects of the immune system. However, as this study notes, “the immune system plays a fundamental role in shaping and preserving the ecology of the microbiota,” as well. It’s a symbiotic relationship. While commensals train the immune system and support functional tuning, the immune system supports, protects and preserves the microbiome.

Can Selected Probiotic Strains Reduce Risk of Eczema in High-Risk Children?

Skin and allergic diseases are on the rise in children. One hypothesis is that there is reduced exposure to microbial components early in life. There are five clinical studies currently available regarding the primary prevention of atopic eczema using probiotic bacteria for allergic diseases. And none have shown promising results, perhaps due to the selection of strains. This study chose three specific strains, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, and Lactococcus lactis
