The gut and the brain are intimately involved in each other's function and health. The gut and brain communicate via several routes, including the nervous system, the immune system, hormones and other biochemicals. The micro-organisms in the digestive system are becoming more recognized as key regulators of gut action, and therefore, by extension, these microflora are important for brain health as well. Could probiotics be helpful for the brain? This presentation will discuss these subjects as well as specific probiotic applications, criteria for use, and what to keep in mind when helping patients toward wellness.
