Objectives: A growing body of evidence suggests that the microbiome plays an important role in mental health. Few studies have examined how probiotic supplementation affects sleep quality. The current study investigated the impact of probiotics on self-reported sleep quality and the role of anxiety in moderating this relationship. The study also assessed the role of vagal tone in mediating probiotic-induced improvements in self-reported sleep quality. Methods: Forty-three undergraduates at the…

Effects of the probiotic Bifidobacterium infantis in the maternal separation model of depression
Findings point to a more influential role for bifidobacteria in neural function, and suggest that probiotics may have broader therapeutic applications than previously considered.
Impact of consuming a milk drink containing a probiotic on mood and cognition
The consumption of a probiotic-containing yoghurt improved the mood of those whose mood was initially poor, and this improvement in mood was not, however, associated with an increased frequency of defaecation.
The probiotic Bifidobacteria infantis: An assessment of potential antidepressant properties in the rat.
The attenuation of pro-inflammatory immune responses, and the elevation of the serotonergic precursor, tryptophan by bifidobacteria treatment, provides encouraging evidence in support of the proposition that this probiotic may possess antidepressant properties.
Children's sleep and autonomic function: low sleep quality has an impact on heart rate variability.
Low sleep quality but not parent-reported low sleep duration leads to an unhealthier heart rate variability pattern (sympathetic over parasympathetic dominance), which stresses the importance of good sleep quality for cardiovascular health in children.
Assessment of psychotropic-like properties of a probiotic formulation (Lactobacillus helveticus R0052 and Bifidobacterium longum R0175) in rats and human subjects
Daily subchronic administration of PF significantly reduced anxiety-like behaviour in rats and alleviated psychological distress in volunteers, as measured particularly by the HSCL-90 scale.
The evidence base of sleep restriction therapy for treating insomnia disorder.
Standalone sleep restriction therapy is efficacious for the treatment of chronic insomnia for sleep diary continuity variables, but studies are insufficient to evaluate the full impact on objective sleep variables.
