Psychobiotics

Psychobiotics are probiotic bacteria that when eaten in appropriate doses have an effect on the intestinal axis of the brain and have a beneficial effect on the mental health of patients suffering from mental illness and alleviate the symptoms of depression, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue. The term psychobiotic was created by psychiatrist Ted Dinan and neurologist John F. Cryan.                     Probiotic bacteria with psycho-biotic effects.

Lactobacillus helveticus i Bifidobacterium longum have an effect on the reduction of cortisol - a hormone released in response to stress, often found at elevated concentrations in patients suffering from depression. They also reduce the inflammation in the body.
Lactobacillus i Bifidobacterium -they actively secrete the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), the deficiency of which is associated with the occurrence of depression. The consumption of bitter chocolate leads to an increase in the amount of both bacterial families in the gut through the prebiotic action of the polyphenols.
Bifidobacterium infantis - is able to change the level of serotonin in the body. Some bacterial strains are able to produce other neurotransmitters, such as noradrenaline or dopamine
Lactobacillus reuteri - administered in the form of yogurt or in the form of supplements has the effect of improving the well-being, appearance and general health and increasing the level of oxytocin.

Lactobacillus acidophilus has a positive effect on the function of the cannabinoid receptors in the spinal cord responsible for regulating the perception of pain. B. infantis, L. reuteri and several other strains of probiotic bacteria reduce inflammation in the body, which usually co-occur with depression. They are also responsible for controlling appetite by increasing the concentration of the leptin hormone and inhibiting the secretion of ghrelin, which results in sending a satiety signal to the brain.

Lactobacillus rhamnosusreduces feelings of anxiety and depression. It affects the brain through the vagus nerve, increasing the secretion of the GABA neurotransmitter.

1. Lactobacillus-acidophilus

One of the most valuable probiotic strains. He belongs to the group of psychobiotics. It prevents the development of harmful microorganisms in the digestive tract, in addition, it participates in the production of niacin, folic acid and vitamin B6. It has the ability to convert lactose into lactic acid, which in people with hypolactasia supports the process of dietary treatment. They have superoxide dismutase that is responsible for the removal of reactive oxygen species. Stimulates immune mechanisms positively, Regulates bowel work. It eliminates toxic substances from the body.

2. Lactobacillus casei

It is competitive against Salmonella typhimurium (Bacterial diptera). It has an effect that prevents transformation of procaccinogens to active carcinogens. It is beneficial in patients with traveler\'s diarrhea, with antibiotic dependent diarrhea and with recurrent intestinal inflammation caused by Clostridium difficile.

3. Bifidobacterium bifidum

Antagonist interaction with Bacteroides strains has been demonstrated. They can inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for the conversion of procaccinogens to carcinogens or bind and inactivate carcinogens. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, this may be particularly useful in the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), e.g. Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis.

4. Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus

Beneficial anticonviral activity has been found, effective action both in preventing remissions of inflammatory bowel states. They are able to produce lactase enzyme and thus facilitate the digestion and absorption of lactose from dairy products.

They can effectively prevent urogenital infections. They are able to colonize the gastrointestinal tract also of newborns, including premature babies. It belongs to the natural microbionts of human milk It inhibits the growth of some Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, fungi and protozoa. It also produces cobalamin. Used to treat acute diarrhoea in children, e.g. viral cancer. It has the inhibiting properties of H. pylori multiplication. The decreased inflammatory response in patients with CH. Lesniowski Crohn and Ulcerative enteritis. In adults, constipation increased the frequency of defecation. It reduces the incidence of respiratory infections. It has been shown that L. reuteri can be used in the prevention of caries because it combats the germicidal Streptococcus mutant. The exact supplementation of L. reuteri can also be successfully used in women in the prophylaxis of inflammatory states within the reproductive organs. There are reports of the potential anti-cancer effect of L. reuteri.

6. Lactobacillus rhamnosus

It can alleviate the clinical symptoms of inflammation in the digestive system and atopic dermatitis. The use of LGG has a positive effect on the therapeutic effect in patients with traveler\'s diarrhea, with diarrhea depending on antibiotic therapy and recurrent intestinal inflammation caused by Clostridium difficile. Milk fermented by LGG reduces the permeability defects caused by exposure to cow\'s milk proteins or rotavirus infection. LGG has a proven beneficial effect on local intestinal resistance. It increases the concentration of IgA and cells that secrete immunoglobulins in the intestinal mucosa. It also stimulates the local release of interferon. They can effectively prevent urogenital infections.

7. Lactobacillus paracasei

It inhibits the development of Salmonella enterica and Heliobacter pylori. It has the ability to break down lactose. He can reduce the number of bacteria in the oral cavity - Streptococcus mutants. It inhibits the growth of intestinal pathogens and supports the immune system. Lactobacillus paracasei supports the fight against obesity. It helps in combating respiratory infections and reduces allergic reactions.

8. Lactobacillus plantarum

Lactobacillus plantarum produces hydrogen peroxide that kills pathogens. Lactobacillus plantarum is also resistant to most antibiotics. Lactobacillus plantarum reduces or prevents inflammation of the lining of the intestinal mucosa in people with Crohn\'s disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis. It has a positive effect on reducing the reduction of systolic blood pressure and LDL-cholesterol as a result of metabolic changes in inflammation of the blood vessels.

9. Bifidobacterium lactis

A significant positive effect of B. lactis usage in the prevention of allergies. Attention! Bifidobacterium lactis protects intestinal epithelial cells from damage by gliadin. Although Bifidobacterium lactis doesn\'t eliminate the allergic reaction to gluten, this protective effect is helpful in treating and preventing the progression of the disease, e.g. in Celiac. Using B.lactis in the research, there was an improvement in the frequency of bowel movements, stool consistency and a passage through the gastrointestinal tract. They are able to produce lactase enzyme and thus facilitate the digestion and absorption of lactose from dairy products. They can survive in the acidic environment of the stomach (similar to Lactobacillus acidophilus). It shows an antagonistic action against Escherichia coli strains, Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium difficile, Salmonella typhi, Shigella dysenteriae and from the Staphylococcus and Proteus genus. It can be used preventively in salmonella poisoning.

10. Bifidobacterium Longum

Bifidobacterium longum has antioxidant activity. The anti-inflammatory. It reduces the symptoms of allergies and colds. It reduces pain and inflammation in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis. It lives mainly in the colon where it produces lactic acid, thus creating an acidic environment, and low pH causes that pathogenic bacteria do not multiply in the intestine.

11. Bifidobacterium breve

It produces acetic and lactic acids by digesting plant fibers. By reducing the pH of the digestive tract, it helps to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria and supports the immune system. B. breve is used to treat diarrhea, flatulence and reduce intestinal irritation. It is also used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and in the treatment of allergic diseases. Contributes to the prevention of fungal infections caused by Candida Albicans. It inhibits E. coli infections. Used for the effective treatment of oral Candida in the elderly. Bifidobacterium breve administered orally helps to modify metabolic functions in adults and can help to reduce obesity.

it colonises the digestive tract and inhibits the growth and spread of pathogenic bacteria. Used in patients with Crohn\'s disease and ulcerative colitis. By digesting carbohydrates it changes them to acid chemical compounds (lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide). It creates an unfriendly environment for bacterial pathogens.

13. Lactobacillus fermentum

It is used in the reduction of respiratory diseases and in the treatment of urogenital infections in women. Resistant to low pH of the human digestive tract. It reduces cholesterol levels better than other species of Lactobacillus. Antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. (may help protect against oxidative tissue damage by some foods.) Ability to control or prevent salmonella infections

14. Lactobacillus bulgaricus

Lactobacillus bulgaricus are able to produce lactase enzyme and thus facilitate the digestion and absorption of lactose from dairy products. Can be used to support the treatment of certain digestive disorders in the gastrointestinal disease, such as IBS, IBD and Crohn. It is able to withstand extreme environmental conditions in the stomach. It is also used in the treatment of antibiotic diarrhea and to strengthen the immune system, eg in the treatment of Lyme disease.

15. Lactobacillus helveticus

It belongs to the group of psycho-biotic bacteria. Clinical studies have shown that L.helveticus helps to improve the mood and improves the quality and length of sleep. They are used to support the proper work of the digestive system, stimulate the immune system, prevent the spread of dangerous bacteria and viruses and have anti-inflammatory effects. Lactobacillus Helveticus. The studies showed an antihypertensive effect. L.helveticus act as an inhibitor of the angiotensin-converting enzyme and this mechanism reduces blood pressure. It shows positive effect on calcium metabolism. It has an antibacterial effect by displacing pathogenic strains.

16. Bifidobacterium infantis

It belongs to the group of psychobiotics. It has the ability to reduce some inflammatory processes associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Ulcerative Colitis (IBD) and Crohn\'s Disease. Among probiotic bacteria, bifidobacterium infantis is one of the leaders in the processes of strengthening the function and creating a protective barrier of intestinal cells. In malabsorption and intestinal leak syndrome, it brings significant acceleration of intestinal regeneration, supporting dietary treatment. Antagonistic activity against the pathogenic Escherichia coli bacterium

17. Lactobacillus gasseri

We can use it to strengthen the immune system, support weight reduction in a slimming diet, reduce chronic inflammation of the intestines and alleviate the allergy symptom. Produce hydrogen peroxide and lactic acid in the gut. It also produces bacteriocins that help fight Staphylococcus aureus infections. (Bacteriocins are bacterial toxins (positive in this case) that prevent the development of other competitive bacteria and pathogens, used in the treatment of obesity, support abdominal fat reduction, inhibit weight gain and accelerate metabolism. Clinical studies published in 2013 in British The Journal of Nutrition showed that the Lactobacillus gasseri strain significantly reduced the abdominal fat content in relation to the control group not receiving supplementation with this probiotic. Current laboratory tests show potential anti-allergic and anti-asthmatic effects as well as the use of the strain in the treatment of kidney stones, but require further research trials.

18. Lactobacillus salivarius

It is used in the treatment of asthma and allergic skin diseases such as eczema, atopic dermatitis. It is useful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome as an anti-inflammatory and soothing bloating. It is currently being studied because of its potential anticancer properties. It has extremely strong homing properties of the intestinal walls in the place where there are pathogens with which it competes, thanks to which it is used for natural eradication of pathogens and building a bridgehead for colonization for other saprophytic bacteria in the intestines. Supports protein digestion and produces B vitamins and vitamin K It inhibits the growth of Candida Albicans.

Prebiotics

The action of the probiotic can be enhanced by administering it together with the prebiotic. Prebiotic is a food ingredient not digestible in the digestive tract, stimulating selective growth or activity of specific intestinal strains, thus influencing the improvement of health.

Prebiotics are fermented by well-defined microorganisms, and dietary fiber is used by most groups of microorganisms living in the colon.

The most well-known prebiotic compounds include inulin, oligofructose, fructooligosaccharides, galactose derivatives and β-glucan derivatives.

Prebiotic polysaccharides are used in foods with reduced calorific value and in diabetic products. They are odorless.

19. Fructooligosaccharides

Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are short-chain prebiotics that are a natural food for probiotic bacteria.

20. Inulin

A soluble fraction of fiber, belongs to the best prebiotics in the world. Inulin has a positive effect on the immune system of the intestine and is recommended for people suffering from celiac disease. In addition, it was found that inulin reduces the glycemic index of foods. It also has the effect of reducing lactose intolerance and prevents diarrhea, reduces the content of ammonia in the intestines and improves the kidneys\' ability to excrete nitrogen. Inulin belongs to compounds that inhibit the development of osteoporosis. Increasing the supply of this ingredient in the diet improves the absorption of calcium. The hypolipidemic properties are of great importance in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, as well as increasing the absorption of selected minerals, including improving the condition of the skeleton. Inulin, which is a low-calorie compound and at the same time serves as a substitute for starch-like carbohydrates, may be an important dietary element in nutrition of people who are overweight and obese.

21. Vital fiber - Degreased golden linseed

Flax seeds/linseed contain numerous biologically active ingredients with health-promoting properties, valuable from the nutritional point of view omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, dietary fibers, lignans, vitamins (C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and folic acid) and ingredients mineral (Ca, Mg, P, Cu, P, Zn). The ratio of omega 6: omega 3 is very advantageous (0,3: 1) It is an excellent source of dietary fiber. It consists of an insoluble and water-soluble fraction (pectin, sluice and rubber). Insoluble fiber has laxative properties and prevents constipation, mainly by increasing the mass of faeces and shortens the time of intestinal transit. Water-soluble fiber, on the other hand, helps maintain a balanced level of postprandial glycemia and lowers blood cholesterol. The ratio of soluble to insoluble fibre in flax seeds is about 40:60. Flax seeds contain about 800 times more lignans compared to other vegetable sources. They have both antioxidant and phytoestrogens properties

22. Natural vitamin B complex

B vitamins supplementation is essential for the proper functioning of the body. Scientific research has proven that vitamins from this group are responsible for the correct proceedings of important biochemical processes and their deficiency leads to the development of many diseases. The results of the research indicate the relationship between the intake of foods rich in B vitamins and their preventive role related to antioxidant properties.

23. Zinc

Zinc has many functions in the human body, for example: maintaining the skin and hair in good condition. It is a part of numerous enzymes, and an important component of many proteins, it takes part in protein synthesis as well as in the stabilisation of cell membranes and the skeletal system. The zinc is necessary for proper taste and smell sensation, proper functioning of the immune system, proper growth and sexual development as well as synthesis and proper functioning of some hormones, eg insulin. It also has antioxidant properties and as an antagonist of cadmium and lead, it detoxifies these metals.

24. Selenium

Selenium is responsible for the correct course of many physiological and biochemical processes occurring in the human body. It occurs mainly in the form of selenomethionine and selenocysteine. This element is a component of about 20 enzymes, among others glutathione peroxidase, which is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes from the harmful effects of peroxides. It is a powerful antioxidant and together with vitamin E has a protective role against the harmful effects of free radicals. Selenium is essential for the proper synthesis, activation and metabolism of thyroid hormones. It plays a role in the proper functioning of the immune system. There are reports that with a sufficiently high intake, selenium may reduce the risk of developing some cancers. The positive role of this micronutrient in the prevention of inflammatory, cardiovascular and neurological diseases is also indicated. In addition, selenium reduces the toxic effects of xenobiotics, especially heavy metals, forming stable complexes with them, which reduces their toxicity. It is also indicated the relationship between insufficient selenium in the body and, for example, weakened immunity, the risk of certain cancers, the development of ischemic heart disease or neurodegenerative diseases. Selenium deficiency was also observed, among others in people with AIDS, phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis, in people with acute pancreatitis, rheumatoid arthritis or depression.
