Abstract

The link between the gut-brain-axis and the causation of mental illnesses has been studied with an increased interest during the last few decades. There is also emerging evidence that the gut microorganisms prescribed as prebiotics and probiotics have the ability to restore normal microbial balance and hence have a potential role in the prevention and treatment of mental illnesses.
