The Human Metagenome and Psychobiotics: A Vision for a Healthier Future

Sagnik Sagnik Sen

Abstract


Human gut microbiota has a very important role in regulation of levels of stress responses in the body and the development of the neurological and immunological systems. It is believed that by targeting specific bacteria in the microbiome and changing the way human gut is colonized, mental diseases can be treated.
This has given birth to the concept of psychobiotics, or bacteria used as drugs for psychiatric illnesses. There is huge scope of research on human subjects with psychobiotics for the proper profiling of these interventions and to understand their role as pharmacological interventions.
