Selection of a probiotic that generates the neurotransmitter GABA for an Alpina milk shot

Yox with Mentalis is an Alpina product that includes vitamin B5, a micronutrient, B12, choline and the DARWIN─selected probiotic Lactobacillus brevis ─ which generates the neurotransmitter GABA, which plays an important role in behaviour, cognition and the body’s response to stress.


“Yox with Mentalis was born thanks to a process of innovation, supported by food science and technology. At Alpina we are committed to the country’s nutrition and, for this reason, we seek to develop foods with multiple functionalities that respond to the needs of consumers. We are very proud of this launch,” said Bernadette Klotz, Alpina’s scientific director.
