Link Between Probiotics and Alcoholism

Chronic alcoholics frequently have an increase in gut permeability, also called leaky gut syndrome.

This condition allows undigested food particles and colon bacteria to enter the bloodstream directly, which can trigger widespread inflammation.

In one study, the alcoholics with the highest degree of gut leakiness had the highest scores for depression, anxiety, and alcohol craving.

Active alcoholics were found to have distinctive intestinal probiotic populations, especially a decrease in probiotics known to reduce inflammation.

This imbalance of gut bacteria meant they were more susceptible to inflammatory diseases, including chronic fatigue syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
