Healthy gut function is associated with normal central nervous system (CNS) function. Hormones, neurotransmitters, and immunological factors released from the gut are known to send signals to the brain either directly or via autonomic neurons. Recently, studies have emerged focusing on variations in the microbiome and the effect on various CNS disorders, including, but not limited to anxiety, depressive disorders, schizophrenia, and autism. Anxiety, Gut Microbiome, and Nutraceuticals: Recent Trends and Clinical Evidence is focused on understanding the role of gut microbiomes on anxiety and how it can be treated using various nutraceuticals. It covers recent trends and clinical evidence in application of nutraceuticals in treating anxiety and related disorders.
