Probiotics are "friendly bacteria" naturally present in our intestinal tract. Their primary role is to support digestion and regularity as well as prevent pathogens from invading the intestinal tract. These live microorganisms are one of the body's primary natural defenses.
Stress is known to affect intestinal transit times and cause intestinal discomfort. Under stress, diarrhea or more frequent, loose stools may occur. Probiotics help preserve a healthy intestinal flora despite stress.
GABA is a neurotransmitter (a messenger in the brain) whose role is to decrease neuronal excitation. While probiotics reduce the intestinal impact of stress, GABA reduces stress’ impact on the brain for a targeted dual action.
