A Systemic review of the Effect of Probiotics on Central Nervous System Functions

A Systemic review of the Effect of Probiotics on Central Nervous System Functions in Animals and Humans has provisionally concluded that B. longum, B. breve, B. infantis, L. helveticus, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum, and L. casei were most effective in improving CNS function, including psychiatric disease-associated functions (anxiety, depression, mood, stress response) and memory abilities. Doses between 10 Billion - 100 Billion CFU in durations of 2 weeks in animals and 4 weeks in humans have shown sufficient effects. These probiotics showed efficacy in improving psychiatric disorder-related behaviors including anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and memory abilities, including spatial and non-spatial memory. People with mental diseases, gastrointestinal disorders and psychiatric comorbidities, in general, appear to benefit from probiotic interventions. 🧬🧠
