To put it simply: they’re probiotics and prebiotics for the brain.Psychobiotics are probiotics and prebiotics for the brain.Psychobiotics are able to influence brain function because the brain and the gut microbiota are in constant crosstalk through the gut-brain axis. By modulating the composition or the metabolism of the gut microbiota, psychobiotics change signaling from the gut to the brain. And because this signaling impacts brain activity, it is

How Our Second Brain Affects Mood, Immune Function, and CognitionYour gut is home to trillions of bacteria and other microbes that communicate with your brain. This communication occurs in large part via the vagus nerve and is part of the gut-brain axis. These findings and more have earned our gut microbiome the nickname ‚Äúthe second¬†brain.‚ÄĚToday, Naveen Jain, Founder of Viome, is here to help us understand how our second brain affects mood, immune function, and cognition.An Overview of The Gut MicrobiomeCan you give us a high-level overview of the gut microbiome?The microbiota is the entire collection of microbes living in
