Stress definitely increases gut permeability to allow microbial metabolites to enter the bloodstream. Yogurt contains limited amounts of probiotics, but they will have little effect on improving the barrier between the gut and the blood.  On the other hand, prebiotics and polyphenols have a much stronger benefit.  Therefore instead of the yogurt for breakfast, think of a bowl of slow-cooked oatmeal (rich in fermentable fiber) with a small amount of blueberries to provide polyphenols and a 6-8 egg white omelette to provide adequate protein to stabilize blood sugar levels. This combination will have a far better effect on depression than yogurt.
