A Spoonful of Yogurt a Day Keeps Your Sadness Away



It’s astonishing to know that simple things can change the whole outlook of life. This may sound ridiculous, but I am here to prove my point.

Rumination

To engage in deep reflective thought is termed as rumination. People chew on the same negative thoughts and consequences which brought them great distress, and this action precedes depression.

Scientists had this great idea, they wanted to find whether probiotics can help fight these negative thoughts. How cool of these scientists to cook up such great ideas.

Onto the theory we go. The researchers prepared a multispecies probiotic white powder and a similar looking placebo. 40 healthy people participated in this study.

Half of them received the probiotic powder and the other half received the placebo. The powder was placed in a sachet, and the participants were asked to mix it with lukewarm water or milk and eat it, each day for about 4 weeks.

They were asked to fill a questionnaire before and after the study. The results showed that the participants who received the probiotic powder had significantly reduced ruminative thoughts.

 To conclude, if you are feeling sad, or always thinking of some bitter experiences in your life, or just thinking about the negative happenings how far the frequency may be, try including probiotics in your diet.

To give you some examples, Dr. Edward. F. Group of Global Healing Centre suggests some wonderful probiotic foods. They include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, dark chocolate, micro algae, miso soup, pickles, Tempeh, kimchi and Kombucha tea.

If you are not familiar with certain foods, yogurt will be your best bet.

Take care,
