Multivitamin/Mineral Plus Probiotics Supplement Associated With Lower Stress and Fatigue Levels

Stress and fatigue are usually thought of as psychological issues, but they can also be a result of oxidative stress caused by chronic stress exposure. A recent study suggests that supplements containing probiotics, magnesium, vitamins, and minerals may help lower stress and fatigue, even one month after people stop taking it.

Participants in the study included 242 people with a mean age of 38.6, 79.8% of whom were women. Over the course of one month, they were given a supplement containing the probiotics Lacobacillus gasseri PA 16/8, Bifidobacterium bifidum MF 20/5, and Bifidobacterium longum SP 07/3 as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9, B12, C, and iron, magnesium, and selenium.

At the conclusion of the one-month supplementation period, the participants reported any incidences that induced stress or fatigue. At that time, the researchers noted an average reduction of 22.7% in stress levels, as measured by the Perceived Stress Scale. They also noted an average 45% reduction in fatigue.

The participants also filled out a follow-up self-questionnaire one month after stopping the supplements, at which point the researchers discovered that the stress and fatigue reducing effects were still present.

Researchers from Merck Medication Familiale in France conducted the study. It was published in the December 2016 issue of Panminerva Medica.

While probiotics are most commonly linked to improving digestion and gut health, they have also been shown to have other health benefits, including a stronger immune system, and a reduced risk of chronic disease.

Previous studies have shown that multivitamins and minerals may aid in weight loss, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and boost general physical health. Other studies have also shown that the cells of people who routinely take multivitamins have a younger biological age.
