Default Stress-Related Digestive Problems? Try Probiotics.

18/01/2008 - Gastrointestinal problems associated with stress may find relief from probiotic supplements, reports a new study from Lallemand.

Using a proprietary blend of probiotics, researchers report that abdominal pain and nausea/vomiting were reduced by the supplements, according to results of a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised study published in the journal Nutrition Research.

The research, in collaboration with scientists from Savoir-Faire & Cie and Proclaim, adds to the science behind Lallemand's Probio-Stick preparation containing Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175.

"The results indicate that Probio-Stick can provide a beneficial effect on the gastrointestinal symptoms experienced by individuals affected by chronic stress," wrote lead author Laurent Diop.

According to background information in the article, stress plays a key role in the development of symptoms linked to disease, including physical, gastrointestinal, and psychological symptoms.

Diop and co-workers recruited 75 volunteers aged between 18 and 60 and randomly assigned them to receive either the daily probiotic or a sensorially identical placebo for three weeks.

At the end of this period, the researchers report that abdominal pain and nausea/vomiting were significantly reduced in the group receiving the probiotics, compared to the placebo group.
