Probiotics, sleep and brain health

Improving the gut microbiota could improve sleep quality, as the gut bacteria also produce melatonin that the brain uses to regulate sleep.

Probiotics have a long history of improving digestive and immune health, but every day researchers are uncovering more about how probiotics can improve other aspects of life outside the gut, including skin health, women’s health, muscle health and brain health. Gut bacteria can not only affect the gut, but also the mind. The gut microbiome can influence neural development, brain chemistry and emotional behavior.
