Experts say anxiety might be alleviated by regulating gut bacteria

Individuals who encounter anxiety symptoms may be helped by firmly taking actions to regulate the microorganisms within their gut using probiotic and non-probiotic food and supplements, suggests an assessment of studies published today into the journal General Psychiatry.

Anxiety symptoms are typical in individuals with mental diseases and a variety of physical disorders, especially in disorders which are associated with stress.

Previous research indicates that up to a 3rd of individuals will be impacted by anxiety symptoms during their lifetime.

Increasingly, studies have indicated that gut microbiota – the trillions of microorganisms in the gut which perform important functions into the immunity system and metabolism by giving essential inflammatory mediators, nutrients and vitamins – can help regulate brain functionality through something known as the gut-brain axis.

Recent research also implies that mental disorders could possibly be treated by regulating the intestinal microbiota, but there is no specific evidence to guide this.
