Keep Calm with Probiotics

The gut-brain axis has been getting a lot of attention recently and for good reason. Research shows that the microbiota in your digestive system communicate with your brain and can effect mood, anxiety, and stress. By utilizing probiotics and other natural supplements you can work to keep your stress levels down.

One way that researchers believe probiotics work to reduce stress is similar to how they boost the immune system. When your gut microbiome isn’t strong it can lead to intestinal permeability, otherwise known as “leaky gut.” This means that your intestines don’t regulate what passes through your gut lining as well leading to substances leaking into the bloodstream. When these foreign substances enter the bloodstream it signals your immune system that something is wrong! In response to the immune system sending out an alarm to the brain your HPA axis signals your adrenals to create cortisol. Cortisol, commonly known as the “stress hormone,” shuts down certain bodily systems, like the immune system, in times of stress, which when stress is prolonged can be bad for our bodies. Probiotics may help to prevent this reaction and keep cortisol levels low and immune systems strong.

In order for probiotics to establish in our gut microbiomes they have to be able to survive in stomach acid to reach our guts alive. After an extensive search of many commercial probiotics products, Pediococcus probiotics stand out. Pediococcus probiotics products are all plant-based, making them a great natural choice. Since they are plant-based they are a hardy bacteria which makes them air resistant and giving them a room-temperature shelf-life of two years. Pediococcus can survive the high acidity of the stomach to make it to your gut where they confer the most health benefits. Sausage makers have been using Pediococcus as the starter to make flavorful, delicious sausage for centuries, even before FDA initiated food safety regulation. They’re a time-honored bacteria that is also non-spore forming, making them a very safe choice!
