Probiotics and Prebiotics Influence Neuropsychological Conditions – 6 Surprising Facts About Microbes In Your Gut – KAREN FOSTER

Researchers have long suggested a link between the gut-brain axis and neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism, depression, and eating disorders. Using probiotics and prebiotics to alter the gut microbiota and influence the gut-brain axis may open up new ways of influencing neuropsychological conditions, says a new review. The majority of the science for probiotics has focused on gut health, but as …
