Anthropometric Measurements and Beck’s Depression Inventory Scores of the Post Hoc Population at Baseline and Endpoint

Variables Probiotic (n = 28) Prebiotic (n = 25) Placebo (n = 25) P-value



Baseline End Baseline End Baseline End
Weight (kg) 72.2 ± 11.8 72.8 ± 12.7 73.0 ± 15.8 71.9 ± 16.2 73.4 ± 13.0 73.5 ± 13.9 0.940
BMI (kg/m2) 26.6 ± 4.2 26.5 ± 4.3 27.2 ± 5.1 26.8 ± 5.1 26.8 ± 4.5 27.1 ± 4.6 0.910
BDI scores 17.6 ± 9.9 9.8 ± 8.0 19.7 ± 10.3 14.1 ± 13.5 18.2 ± 10.4 15.9 ± 12.7 0.044
∆BDI score –7.5 ± 7.8 –4.7 ± 8.6 –2.1 ± 6.7 0.036

BMI, body mass index; BDI, Beck’s Depression Inventory; ∆BDI, BDI change from baseline.

BDI score was square root transformed. Data are expressed as mean ± SD.

P-values obtained from ANOVA/ANCOVA adjusted for baseline values. P < 0.05 is considered significant.
