Probiotic yogurt may help treat anxiety1st September 2011
Research carried out at University College, Cork, has discovered that bacteria found in yoghurt could stave off depression.
Scientists say that probiotics found in the dairy product have the potential to alter brain chemistry and may help in the treatment of anxiety and depression-related disorders. The scientists studied mice fed with the probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus and found they showed fewer signs of stress, anxiety and depression-related behaviour than those fed on broth. The results also showed significantly lower levels of the stress hormone corticosterone.
