Researcher Matthew Hilimire said that it is likely that the probiotics in the fermented foods are favorably changing the environment in the gut, and changes in the gut in turn influence social anxiety.

He added that he thinks that it is absolutely fascinating that the microorganisms in one's gut can influence his/ her mind. The study is published in the Psychiatry Research journal.
