Could Specific Probiotic Strains Modulate Brain Processing and Connectivity?

Probiotic Strains May Modulate Brain Processing

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, howeverRead …
