Probiotics are live microorganisms. They are safe, natural ingredients that can be taken as dietary supplements and incorporated into the regular diet. Clinically studied and known for their beneficial impact on the host’s immune system and gut functions, the idea of using probiotics to improve psychological well-being through the brain-gut axis first appeared in 1880. It was not until 2006 that this idea was tested in preclinical studies.
