Progurt For Mental Disorders.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, March 17, 2015

“In the midst of winter, I found there was within me an invincible summer.” wrote Albert Camus, French Nobel Prize winning author, journalist and philosopher. We at Progurt embrace Camus philosophy and encourage all to strive to find beauty within their daily life and within their world.

The United States National Mental Health Association reports that 30%-70% of suicide victims have suffered from a form of depression. Men commit almost 75% of suicides, even though twice as many women attempt suicide. Bipolar disorder, depression, substance abuse and related health disorders are being reported in all age groups.

Progurt has been developed as a powerful probiotic to help rectify gut disorders, which may also, according to a Canadian study, be a key for helping with mental illness.

The Canadian study, the first of its kind, is now studying probiotics versus a placebo in 50 patients with bipolar disorder. Probiotics are “a novel area for exploration” for treating mental illness, researcher Dr. Valerie Taylor, a psychiatrist at Women’s College, told CTV News.

The key to improving treatments, and the lives of those suffering from mental illness, may lie in “looking outside the box and other body systems,” Taylor said.
