Can Probiotics affect my mental clarity?


If you’re suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, stress and/or mood disorders, you should know that new research has shown that stabilizing your gut health flora is vital if you are to maintain mental clarity. If the natural “good” gut bacteria are not healthy, it will eventually have an impact on your brain activity. Symptoms of mental illness became apparent in lab mice once their gut bacteria had been deregulated, leading to cognitive and behavioral changes. Mice who were naturally shy became more hyperactive, displaying similar symptoms of ADHD observed in children.


Why better mental health using Probiotics?


Our body’s diverse systems determine our capacity to memorize and focus. What we eat directly affects neurological functions and influences immune response. So underestimating our body’s ability to detoxify is like saying the Earth can’t clean itself. If our inherent system of detoxification is hindered, it can alter mental clarity, focus and memory. As in mice, disrupting the gut flora equilibrium changes brain chemistry over time, altering behavioral patterns. This is why probiotics may help regulate behavioral changes, and mood swings in people with gastrointestinal diseases; it may also help the brain operate in its optimal form.
Since autistic people are prone to more digestive ailments then average, logically, probiotics have shown stimulating research in the treatment of autism. Theoretically, 1 in 4 children with this condition have one chronic gastrointestinal symptom. A renowned study in 2006 involving probiotics in the treatment of autism was the trial run led by Professor Glenn Gibson at the University of Reading. A total of 40 children ages between 4 and 13 were given the probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum. The trial hadn’t lasted three full weeks before the parents began seeing positive effects, such as better stools, digestive health, and obvious mental and behavioral ameliorations. However, the study did not conclude which strain of the L. plantarum was used.


NOVA Probiotics: The sane brain strain


“We hear from patients time and time again, says lead author Dr. Kirsten Tillisch, that they never felt depressed or anxious until they started experiencing problems with their gut. Our study shows that the gut-brain connection is a two-way street… When we consider the implications of this work, the old sayings ‘you are what you eat’ and ‘gut feelings” take on new meaning’”. NOVA probiotics give you full control of your gut-brain highway, so you may control your life and clean your headlights for optimal mental clarity. You don’t want to be strained in the middle of a mental traffic jam.
