Yeah, at first I thought this theory was a bit quackish (had a friend 10 years a go that was trying to explain to me the brain gut connection). However, the more I read the more sense it makes.

For instance, I was reading on the gut's response to the supplement (amino acid) GABA. The supplement was said 'not to work' because it didn't cross the blood brain barrier.

However, I read a recent article suggesting that gut bacteria easily could convert GABA into Ketones (which have psychoactive effects) which readily cross the BBB. Perhaps this is how GABA works. It's not a placebo for me (that I know of).
