Yet more evidence continues to support the use of probiotics connected to learning, memory, and now anxiety. Researchers at the University of Cork in Ireland have compared two different types of Bifidobacterium and how they affect mouse behavior. In skill tests of object recognition, and spatial learning and memory, the mice that were given Bifidobacterium longum performed better.

In fact, another study at McMaster University in Canada in people suggests that probiotics may have an anti-anxiety effect and influence neuropsychological conditions.

Probiotics are the good bacteria that keep the bad bacteria “in check” in the intestines. Foods like yogurt and other fermented dairy foods contain the good bacteria. Bifidobacterium in particular can help prevent diarrhea, lower cholesterol, and stimulate the immune system to name a few.
