Today, more and more women are suffering from stress and anxiety from the overwhelming responsibilities of daily life, however there’s good news because certain probiotic formulations can help reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety. According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, a probiotic formulation containing the Proprietary Institut Rosell-Lallemand strains of Lactobacillus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium Rosell-175, significantly reduces symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Montreal, Quebec. February 2, 2011. Today, more and more women are suffering from stress and anxiety from the overwhelming responsibilities of daily life, however there’s good news because certain probiotic formulations can help reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety. According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, a probiotic formulation containing the Proprietary Institut Rosell-Lallemand strains of Lactobacillus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium Rosell-175, significantly reduces symptoms of stress and anxiety. Probiotic Sticks come packaged in single-dose sticks of naturally flavoured powder that dissolves quickly in the mouth, and can be taken anywhere without water and at any time of the day, even between meals when gastric pH is at its lowest. Jamieson Laboratories Canada is the distributor of this probiotic formulation developed by Institut Rosell-Lallemand under the brand name “Probiotic Sticks”, which are available wherever Jamieson products are sold across Canada.

Today, consumers recognize that probiotics are a natural choice for an increasing number of health symptoms and are often a more holistic option to prescription medication. Although the benefits of probiotics were discovered centuries ago, it is only in the last few years that clinicians and some leading medical experts, as well as manufacturers, are becoming increasingly aware of the potential of probiotics. “As more and more research is done, I am confident that probiotics will grow very fast,” says Isabelle Champié, Global Marketing Director for Institut Rosell-Lallemand. “As one of my colleagues said at a recent conference, ‘we can tell that probiotics are now teenagers!’”

Innovative probiotic studies

This new clinical study is based on the effects of a one-month administration of the probiotic formulation contained in Jamieson’s Probiotic Sticks, on anxiety, depression, stress and coping strategies in healthy human volunteers. The study involved 55 stressed but otherwise healthy subjects that had undergone a range of psychological self-assessment tests and a biomarker for stress and anxiety (24 hour urinary free cortisol monitoring). In a previous randomized study, it was also shown as the first probiotic preparation to efficiently reduce stress-induced gastrointestinal symptoms in chronic stress sufferers.

The authors of the new study concluded:

“These results provide further evidence that gut microflora plays a role in stress, anxiety, and depression, perhaps via the enteric nervous system as well as centrally. Subject to the confirmation of these results, probiotics might offer a useful novel therapeutic approach to neuropathologic disorders and/or as adjunct therapies in psychiatric disorders”.

Study Details

The randomized study showed that daily administration of the probiotic formulation used in Jamieson’s Probiotic Sticks for one month, had a beneficial effect on general signs of anxiety and depression (in particular the somatisation, depression and anger-hostility components, as shown by Hopkins Symptom Checklist-90 test) in mildly stressed population. The probiotic formulation also improved the subject’s ability to cope with the stress of everyday events (Coping Checklists test). Results of the self-assessment tests were correlated by a decrease of urinary free cortisol levels in the probiotic treated group, a biomarker for stress and anxiety. The investigators reported that it was the first time that free cortisol level was monitored during a probiotic study.

A study I can attest to!
This I can say has been the case for me. I lived a very stressed and over-worked lifestyle in London for many years and this eventually took its toll on my body both physically and mentally. I started taking probiotics on a daily basis and also really looked at my diet. Things have improved considerably since, my energy levels are fantastic even after a long day in the office. I can't recommend probiotics enough. These guys in particular...
