Welcome!


Thanks for visiting! My goal here is to discuss the latest scientific research to separate the good from all that "guff" in nutritional sciences and all aspects of human health. Because the more you Know, well...the more you Know!

Probiotics for Brain Health

Here's yet another study showing the brain/cognitive benefits of probiotics.In this newly published study, healthy women with no gastrointestinal or psychiatric symptoms were randomly assigned to groups given a fermented milk product with probiotic (FMPP), a non-fermented milk product, (the control group), or no intervention (a second control group) daily for 4 weeks.

Participants underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) before and after the intervention, to measure brain response to an emotional faces attention task and resting brain activity.

Results showed that four weeks of FMPP intake affected the activity of brain regions that control central processing of emotion and sensation.

I'm sure much more research on the gut-brain axis is going to be published in the coming months, so keep checking back (or subscribe to Know Guff by email) to stay up-to-date on this exciting field.
