The effects of probiotics on sleep and fatty acids
2014 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Probiotics are dietary supplements that contain bacteria that are potentially beneficial for the intestinal flora. The positive effects of probiotics are however not limited to the intestine. The use of probiotics is becoming more and more common and therefore needs to be studied more closely.The purpose of this study is to see how healthy individuals, in the age between 18 and 28 years old and with a BMI between 20 and 25, respond to the probiotic LactiPlus (also called FF8).Blood samples were collected before and after the subjects have eaten a standardized meal. The subject´s glucometabolic responses to food, sleep patterns and their fatty acid profile was analyzed in relation to the probiotic composition.Due to difficulties including study subjects, three subject completed the participation in the study. The three study subjects had similar sleeping habits, one had slightly higher fruit intake, the word and number memory were similar, but it was not possible to relate any data to the use of probiotics. It can be summarized that inclusion additional study subjects is needed.
