Probiotic Bacteria help with Anxiety and Memory

A study at University College Cork, Ireland has found that a daily dose of a certain probiotic bacteria may help people manage mild anxiety and difficulties with memory. The probiotic bacterium is called Bifidobacterium longum 1714 and those who were on the capsules for one month had lower stress hormone levels and did better on memory tests than when they took a placebo. This suggests there may really be a pill for that!
