Probiotics are becoming more and more prominent in the press. This weekend’s Mail on Sunday’s You magazine featured an article on the importance of healthy gut bacteria for boosting mood as well as health and weight loss.

The two strains mentioned as being found to be beneficial for mood are Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 & Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, and are found in our 'For every day' probiotic, which was featured in the article as the best probiotic for stress.

Unbelievable you may think that we are now talking about taking probiotics for stress, but a
s described in the article, it actually makes a lot of sense when you know that our gut bacteria actually produces key neurotransmitters including serotonin, our feel good neurotransmitter, and GABA, which calms us.

Interestingly the article also mentioned that psychobiotics can work inversely too. So having the wrong kinds of bacteria in our gut can make us feel less than happy. This all points to how important it is to look after our little bugs and ensure they are the right ones doing the right job.
