Prebiotics and Probiotics Book Excerpt:

Probiotic bacteria are found in the intestinal microbiota of the host and favor multiple metabolic reactions. Prebiotics provide food for probiotic bacteria and have an effect on their own performance in favor of host health. Numerous metabolic and immunological mechanisms are involved in its effects. Probiotics have been studied for several decades and their use for human consumption is still unclear. However, new types of molecules with prebiotic functions and components of probiotic bacteria with therapeutic potential are still being studied. The versatility of these molecules makes their incorporation into human food and animal diets feasible. This book is a compendium of recent scientific information on the use of probiotics and prebiotics for the benefit of human and animal health.

Prebiotics Book Excerpt:

Consumers are becoming more and more interested in foods that have a health benefit beyond basic nutrition. This is leading to the introduction of several probiotic and prebiotic containing foods in the marketplace. New practices are now being adopted by the food industry to develop and promote these types of functional foods with a greater shelf life. Prebiotics (inulin, gum acacia and honey) are foods or supplements that encourage the growth of "good" or "friendly" bacteria i.e. Lactobacillus which have beneficial effects during conditions like aging, gastrointestinal disorders, yeast infections, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, immune system slumps, and may be even colon cancer risk. In the human body, prebiotics nourish the microflora (probiotics) and encourage them to work more efficiently, keeping the human body healthy and strong. This monograph recapitulated practical approaches related to prebiotics as potential substrates for lactic cultures. The future of prebiotics remains extremely positive, with many sectors now reaping the benefits.

Probiotic Diet Book Excerpt:

Probiotics are living microorganisms that, when ingested, provide numerous health benefits. They're usually bacteria, but certain types of yeasts can also function as probiotics.You can get probiotics from supplements, as well as from foods prepared by bacterial fermentation. Probiotic foods include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, and kimchi. Probiotics should not be confused with prebiotics, which are dietary fibers that help feed the friendly bacteria already in your gut. Dozens of different probiotic bacteria offer health benefits.The most common groups include Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Each group comprises different species, and each species has many strains.Interestingly, different probiotics address different health conditions. Therefore, choosing the right type or type of probiotic is essential.Some supplements are known as broad-spectrum probiotics or multi-probiotics combine different species in the same product.Although the evidence is promising, more research is needed on the health benefits of probiotics.Importance of Microorganisms for Your GutThe complex community of microorganisms in your gut is called the gut flora or microbiota. Your gut contains hundreds of different types of microorganisms as many as 1,000, according to some estimations.This includes bacteria, yeasts, and viruses with bacteria making up the vast majority.Most of the gut flora is found in your colon, or large intestine, which is the last part of your digestive tract.Surprisingly, the metabolic activities of your gut flora resemble those of an organ. For this reason, some scientists refer to the gut flora as the "forgotten organ".Your gut flora performs many functions that are important for health. It manufactures vitamins, including vitamin K and some of the B vitamins.It also turns fibers into short-chain fats like butyrate, propionate, and acetate, which feed your gut wall and perform many metabolic functions.These fats also stimulate your immune system and strengthen your gut wall. This can help prevent unwanted substances from entering your body and provoking an immune response. However, not all organisms in your gut are friendly.Your gut flora is highly sensitive to your diet, and studies show that an unbalanced gut flora is linked to numerous diseases.These diseases include obesity, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, colorectal cancer, Alzheimer's and depression. Probiotics and prebiotic fibers can help correct this balance, ensuring that your "forgotten organ" is functioning optimally. Impact on Digestive HealthProbiotics are widely researched for their effects on digestive health. Strong evidence suggests that probiotic supplements can help cure antibiotic-associated diarrhea.When people take antibiotics, especially for long periods of time, they often experience diarrhea even long after the infection has been eradicated.This is because the antibiotics kill many of the natural bacteria in your gut, which shifts gut balance and allows harmful bacteria to thrive.Probiotics also combat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common digestive disorder, reducing gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and other symptoms.Some studies also note benefits against inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.What's more, probiotics may fight Helicobacter pylori infections, which are one of the main drivers of ulcers and stomach cancer.GET THIS BOOK NOW AND TO MORE ABOUT THIS

Probiotics and Prebiotics Bioactive Foods Book Excerpt:

Probiotics and prebiotics are important for human health. Probiotics are live bacteria that can provide various health benefits, and are found in certain foods or supplements. Prebiotics are substances that come from certain types of carbohydrates that humans cannot digest, but are food to the beneficial bacteria in the gut. The gut bacteria are jointly called gut microbiota and perform many vital functions in the body. Eating balanced amounts of both probiotics and prebiotics can help maintain the right balance of these bacteria. Gut microbiota gives protection from harmful bacteria and fungi. Studies have confirmed that these bacteria can improve the immune system functions, depression, obesity, etc. They also provide important nutrients to the cells lining the digestive tract. This book contains some path-breaking studies in the field of bioactive foods. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. As this field is emerging at a rapid pace, the contents of this book will help the readers understand the diferent aspects of probiotics and prebiotics.
