It alleviates depressive-like behavior and reduces inflammation level in mice with early life stress. This was then reported in a human study, where there was a reduction in depressive symptoms and levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) after an eight-week PS128 intervention in two patients with MDD (Chang et al., 2019). Promising. ⁣

This is a very beneficial bacteria, that microbiologists have found in Taiwanese pickled cabbage. It reduces body fat, stimulates the growth of muscle tissue and boost muscle strength and endurance capacity, based off experiments in mice (National Taiwan Sport University). ⁣

This four-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigated the effects of Lactobacillus plantarum PS128 (PS128) on boys with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) aged 7-15. Results showed that PS128 ameliorated opposition/defiance behaviors, and that the total score of SNAP-IV for younger children (aged 712) improved significantly compared with the placebo group. Additionally, several elements were also notably improved in the PS128 group after 28-day consumption of PS128 (Liu et al., 2019). ⁣


This probiotic appears very promising for a wide range of potential conditions. Keep a look out for more research in this space. Found in high amounts in pickled cabbage. DM me to join my free newsletter. ⁣
