Application of Probiotics and Their Potential Health Benefits
In this topic, “Application of Probiotics and Their Potential Health Benefits”, we would like to explore the ability of some bacteria to interfere with biochemical and physiological reactions in humans, favoring an equilibrium called eubiosis. In our organism, this delicate balance not only concerns the microbial composition, but also what contributes to their functionality. It follows that a break in this equilibrium can cause an uncontrolled proliferation of pathogenic species with consequent damage to the surrounding environment. To cause such dysbiosis, there is the reckless use of antibiotics, but also sexual activity, personal hygiene, and nutrition such as alcohol misuse. Restoring the balance of the microbiota can favor the conditions so that diseases associated with dysbiosis such as IBD, ulcerative colitis, allergies and neurological conditions, including autism, depression, anxiety, and stroke, do not develop. Nowadays, probiotic-containing foods, supplements, and medications have become a large part of our industry and are proven to offer potential health benefits. Medical colleagues, as well as biologists and chemists, are invited to disclose their preclinical and clinical studies to contribute to the characterization of these functional foods useful for manipulating the microbiota, contributing to the fight against certain diseases such as those mentioned above.
