The Probiomagic

Epsita Mukherjee


The exact location or composition of gut is not yet known to the human It has a vague usage in the colloquial language and scientifically contains the system of microbial flora that is ultimately responsible for increasing the potential of our immune system. It is the study of more “good bacteria” as it is called commonly and higher the composition of our gut microbiome, better is our capability of fighting the various ranges of infection. Alleviation of the disease progression calls for higher probiotic enrichment in our gut, which is ideally possible by the intake of various milk-based products. Starting from pediatrics to odontology, probiotics play a very important role. Newer researches are being conducted for the same every day. To infer the crucial roles of therapeutics and their prophylactic roles in children, documentation efficiencies are being checked on the treatment of infectious gastroenteritis, diarrhea and others. Mostly probiotics are known to be good bacteria but in rare cases they are also known to cause several bacteria–host interactions or unwanted side effects too. Out of the many probiotics being talked and read about every day, few commonly advisable ones include Lactobacillus, Saccharomyces, Bifidobacterium and others. These probiotics are especially advisable in cases of extreme indigestion, low metabolism, skin issues and other digestive disorders. However, it has been found that people with low or compromised immune systems are ideally supposed to avoid the intake of probiotics to prevent further bacterial infection. One of the most common consumables includes yoghurt, which is a milk-based product, including fermentation of many friendly bacteria like Lactobacillus. The present article presents an overall comprehensive review about few unknown tales of the action of probiotics.
