Caring for your mental health is as much important as caring for your physical health. Maybe, mental health is more important. But, we tend to care most about our physical health. We do regular gym, walking, exercise, but exercise for your mental health is also very much important. If not taken care properly, you may get mentally ill, and you might not even know about it.
Many people suffer from mental health issues, and they aren’t even aware of it. Some of the major mental disorders are clinical depression, bipolar disorder, dementia, and anxiety disorder. Most people suffer from Bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that may cause low depressive episodes to high manic episodes, and it may cause mood episodes as well. The exact cause of bipolar disorder is not known yet, but genetics, altered brain structure, environment, and chemistry may cause this mental disorder.
But, a research by Faith Dickerson from Sheppard Pratt Health System, Maryland US, shows that the probiotic supplement can help to reduce bipolar disorder. The researcher team had an experiment for six months with patients admitted for mania treatment and found that probiotic helps controlling moods and to improve the immune system. Those patients were randomly selected to receive either probiotic treatment or placebo, in addition to their regular treatments.
Probiotic organisms are non-pathogenic bacteria, when present in the gut flora, are likely to improve the mental health of the host. So, regularly have your probiotic supplement. Buttermilk is known to have probiotic supplements. So, savouring buttermilk can help you reducing bipolar disorder. You can get special probiotic supplements available in the market as well. Currently, the standard treatment for bipolar disorder is visiting a psychotherapist and get a psychotherapy and some prescribed medicines. But, after this research, probiotics will be added to the list of the treatment of bipolar disorder.
