Gut Feelings

This study compares other studies on gut bacteria and anxiety.  Improving diet worked notably better than merely introducing probiotic cultures.  Regrettably I could not find details about the more effective diets.

The researchers conclude: "We find that more than half of the studies included showed it was positive to treat anxiety symptoms by regulation of intestinal microbiota.

"There are two kinds of interventions (probiotic and non-probiotic interventions) to regulate intestinal microbiota, and it should be highlighted that the non-probiotic interventions were more effective than the probiotic interventions. More studies are needed to clarify this conclusion since we still cannot run meta-analysis so far."
