    Probiotics in milk studied for impact on ADHD in children - CBC.ca

    Joan Allaby, the laboratory’s manager, is working with Anne Baccardax, a master's student in clinical psychology at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S.

    "There's been some past research that's shown benefits of probiotics on depression and anxiety in adults and there's also a link between the gut and the brain called the gut-brain axis," Baccardax said.

    "So that's kind of what our study's based on, the belief that the balance in your gut, if that gets out of line, that can actually affect what happens in your brain. So, we're theorizing that probiotics can help restore balance within the gut and in turn help some psychological symptoms."
