Probiotics and emotional health
Clinical and pre-clinical studies indicate that gut microbes can support mood and behavior by affecting the gut-brain axis, a complex communication network that links your gut with your brain. And the two probiotics in this formula are particularly effective.In two randomized controlled trials, participants taking a blend of Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 reported significant mood, stress response and emotional balance support as compared to placebo. These strains relieved stress-related gastrointestinal discomfort as well.
We've developed a proprietary extract of the popular spice saffron that is standardized for the two compounds safranal and crocin, because compelling research indicates saffron compounds promote mood health. In five different clinical studies, participants taking daily saffron extract reported improved mood test scores as compared to placebo or other controls.
The highest level of standardization in the above clinical studies was 11% for crocin and 2% for safranal. Since those concentrations are not readily available on the market, we worked with our saffron sources to create a proprietary blend specifically for this formulation.
