Anyone looking for a healthy digestive system has come across probiotics, but they might not be the saving grace you’re thinking.
A team of researchers at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University have been studying the effects of probiotics, and believe their study to be the first linking probiotics to brain fogginess and the growth of bacteria in the digestive system.
According to their study, some patients experienced symptoms so severe they were unable to work and had to quit their jobs.
Recently, Dr. Oz addressed the study in a segment on his show. Oz invited core expert Dr. Roshini Raj, board certified gastroenterologist and internist, to help explain what researchers at Augusta University found in their study.
“This is a remarkable study because we have been talking about probiotics for years and how great they are,” said Raj. “The question is: Can you get too much of a good thing?”
