Probiotics to support mental health

Probiotics have spurred many hopes and promises as a result of their interactions with the microbiome-gut-brain axis to help support mental health.

As a pioneer in the probiotic industry since 1934, Lallemand Health Solutions has committed to contribute strongly in this new field of research since 2006; documenting the specific benefits of three of its flagship probiotics with the publication of over 20 mechanistic studies and 6 clinical studies.

CEREBIOME® the most documented psychobiotic

CEREBIOME® (previously known as Probio’Stick®) is an innovative psychobiotic formulation combining Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell®-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell®-175 developed by the  Rosell® Institute for Microbiome and Probiotics by Lallemand.

CEREBIOME® is a unique and strongly documented psychobiotic formulation. It is the most documented psychobiotic with five clinical studies and over ten pre-clinical studies allowing to highlight eight mechanisms of action on the brain-gut axis. CEREBIOME® helps alleviate the physical and psychological symptoms of stress and feelings of anxiety. Such consistency of results is rare in this innovative field and has been acknowledge by the Canadiand and Brazilian health authorities with approved health claims on stress, anxiety and mood balance.

The incredible link between the gut and the brain: the microbiome-gut-brain axis

We have all experienced the incredible link between our brain and our gut. Just when we need to be at our best (i.e. an important event, an exam, the first day in a new job, a big meeting, etc.), our gut seems to have a mind of its own. Who is to blame? More and more scientific evidence points at the Brain-Gut axis, also known as our “second brain”, referenced amongst scientists as a bi-directional dialogue between our nervous and digestive systems.

As pioneer and expert in research on the brain-gut axis, Lallemand Health Solutions launches a new informative hub. To find out more about this innovative ingredient, visit and download the free white paper: Exploring the power of psychobiotics: New frontiers in research.
