New Study Indicates Link Between Gut Bacteria and Depression

Feb 04 2019
In a new study of the human microbiome, the complex ecosystem of microorganisms that exists inside a person’s body, researchers have found links between specific bacteria and depression. People with treatment-resistant depression had microbiomes that were less likely to contain serotonin- and dopamine-creating bacteria. Although more investigation is needed, this is a fascinating direction for future research. For more information on this study, please see this article in Forbes.
