Bifidobacterium are one of the major genera’s of probiotic bacteria that make up the gastrointestinal tract microbiota in mammals. They help the host perform essential functions such as digestion and staving off harmful bacteria.
Streptococcus is heterogeneous group of Gram-positive bacteria, has broad significance in medicine and industry. The probiotic specie thermophilus is characterised by its rapid growth and active fermentation properties of milk which is one of two original strains used to make yogurt.
Lactobacillus is the largest genus within the group of lactic acid bacteria and plays an important role in human health. Lactobacillus is the most common probiotic found in food, and it is diverse in its application to maintain human life and well-being.
Other genera’s that offer diverse probiotic species which are beneficial to enhance life and restore imbalance to the human microbiome. In light of the increasing benefits probiotics can offer, technological advances are being made as more and more research is being conducted to recognise their uses.
The human body is comprised of diverse micro-ecosystems of bacteria, each which have unique and varying functions within the body. Most of these bacteria are beneficial – these ‘good’ bacteria are known as probiotics. Probiotics can assist your body to produce vitamins, absorb nutrients from your food, and even help regulate your mood. Probiotic bacteria can also serve as placeholders, taking up room by colonising within your digestive tract so that other bacteria can’t settle in, multiply, and create chaos for your system.
Today an increase in knowledge of functional foods and beverages has led to develop foods and drinks with health benefits beyond adequate nutrition. The presence of probiotics in commercial food products and beverages has been claimed for certain health benefits. This has led to industries focusing on different applications of probiotics in food products and creating a new generation of ‘probiotic health’ foods and drinks.
Healthy people should be the first to take probiotics, because it makes their general health better and defends them from diverse kinds of illnesses. Probiotics display numerous health benefits beyond providing basic nutritional value. These evidences have been established by scientific testing and clinical trials in humans or animals.
Probiotics applications have been extended from human applications to diversity of agricultural application. Agricultural applications include animal feed developing fortified feed with intestinal microbiota to benefit the animals, in plants probiotics products can be used as biofertilizers, plant strengtheners, phytostimulators, and biopesticides.
