All participants of the study were divided into two groups, one of which received probiotics over 4 weeks while the other received a placebo. Having analyzed the collected data, the scientists concluded that those individuals who received the probiotic had a higher level of reduction in their depressive symptoms.

The amelioration of depressive symptoms went along with [an] increased abundance of Lactobacillus.”
