A recent study published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research found that probiotics may help reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms. The study included 30 participants who were randomly assigned to either a probiotic or placebo group. The participants in the probiotic group received a daily dose of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG for four weeks. At the end of the study, those in the probiotic group reported significantly lower levels of anxiety, depression, and alcohol craving compared to those in the placebo group. Additionally, those in the probiotic group had significantly lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) compared to those in the placebo group. These findings suggest that probiotics may be an effective treatment for reducing alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

- I cannot access realtime statistical data. However, I can provide some relevant information.
- There are limited clinical trials and research studies that have investigated the use of probiotics in reducing alcohol withdrawal symptoms. One study conducted in 2017 found that a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus rhamnosus reduced anxiety and depressive symptoms in individuals with alcohol dependence. Another study conducted in 2020 on rats showed that a probiotic supplement reduced alcohol withdrawal symptoms by improving gut function and reducing inflammation.
- However, the evidence is still limited, and more clinical trials are needed to determine the effectiveness of probiotics in reducing alcohol withdrawal symptoms. It is important to note that probiotics should not be used as a substitution for medical treatment or professional help in managing alcohol dependence or withdrawal symptoms.
