Entero-CR introduces live, beneficial bacteria and yeasts similar to those naturally present in your intestines. These probiotics help restore optimal microbial balance and a healthy gut—which is essential to good digestive and overall health.
For years, a person’s physical health and psychological well-being were looked at as two entirely separate issues. But today, more and more studies support the notion that the health of our gut microbiome plays a significant role in how we feel. This is due to the "communication network" that exists between the human gut and brain, called the gut-brain axis.
The gut-brain axis is both a physical and biochemical connection enabled by millions of neurons in our gut, which are linked to our brain via nerves in our nervous system. The largest of the nerves connecting our gut and brain is the vagus nerve, which communicates information about our body’s various functions from our gut to our brain and then back again.
One study on mice showed that certain strains of good gut bacteria can stimulate the production of a neurotransmitter called GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which helps control feelings of fear and anxiousness. Another study linked an inflammatory toxin produced by bad gut bacteria to severe depression, dementia and schizophrenia.
Since gut bacteria have been shown to affect mental health, it makes sense that enriching the gut microbiome with beneficial bacteria could have a positive impact on mood. In another study, 64% of people who supplemented their diet with the probiotic Bifidobacterium longum saw a reduction in their depression symptoms during the study period.
Entero-CR contains more than 15 different strains of good bacteria, including Bifidobacterium longum (the strain mentioned in the study above). With continued use, Entero-CR may help support your mood and emotional wellness, as well as aspects of your physical health.
