Background

Definition

Etymologically, the term probiotic appears to be a composite of the Latin preposition pro ("for") and the Greek adjective βιωτικός (biotic), the latter deriving from the noun βίος (bios, "life").Miller et al British Journal of Nutrition, 2003 Lilly and Stillwell coined the term probiotic in 1965 and defined it as "a substance produced by one microorganism stimulating the growth of another microorganism" and understood a probiotic as opposite to an antibiotic.Rusch 2002 Over the course of time various definitions of probiotics have surfaced and the internationally adopted FAO/WHO definition was coined in 2001 which describes probiotics as
"Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host" FAO report 2002

The International Study Group on New Antimicrobial Strategies (ISGNAS), developed a concept for the detailed definition of probiotics in three categories.

1. Medical probiotics (drugs) - a microbial preparation which contains live and/or dead microorganisms including their components and products determined to be employed as a drug for therapeutic purposes.

2. Pharmaceutical probiotics (food supplements) - a microbial preparation designed for manufacture of food supplements.

3. Alimentary probiotics (food) - a microbial preparation designed for use in food fermentation or food production. The mode of action includes immunomodulation, host microflora modulation, and the modulation of metabolic processes. Rusch 2002

Science behind probiotics

An organism may be classified as a probiotic(in human beings) based on the following criteria.

Therapeutical use of probiotic formulations in clinical practice T.Lannitti et al Clinical Nutrition Journal, 2010

Of the probiotic microbes, the genera Bifidobacter and Lactobacillus are very prevalent. They restore the normal intestinal microflora after antibiotic treatment, produce digestive enzymes, improves food digestibility, suppresses food-borne pathogens.

Probiotics as food

Probiotics essentially work by helping to maintain and replenish these colonies of beneficial bacteria. They can be ingested through a variety of means, including daily capsules, yogurt shots, or enhanced dairy products. Capsules of probiotics are similar to capsules of any nutrient, and contain live bacteria within an easily digestible shell. Small yogurt shots, which contain less than one ounce of yogurt infused with high numbers of probiotics, can be taken once a day instead of the capsule. Significant numbers of probiotics have also become included in many types of milk, cheeses, and yogurts to help keep numbers of gut flora high. Probiotic effects ehow.com

Health benefits of probiotics

The world is full of microorganisms (including bacteria), and so are people's bodies -- in and on the skin, in the gut, and in other orifices. Friendly bacteria are vital to proper development of the immune system, to protection against microorganisms that could cause disease, and to the digestion and absorption of food and nutrients. Each person's mix of bacteria varies. Interactions between a person and the microorganisms in his body, and among the microorganisms themselves, can be crucial to the person's health and well-being.

This bacterial "balancing act" can be thrown off in two major ways:
1. By antibiotics, when they kill friendly bacteria in the gut along with unfriendly bacteria. Some people use probiotics to try to offset side effects from antibiotics like gas, cramping, or diarrhea. Similarly, some use them to ease symptoms of lactose intolerance -- a condition in which the gut lacks the enzyme needed to digest significant amounts of the major sugar in milk, and which also causes gastrointestinal symptoms.
2. "Unfriendly" microorganisms such as disease-causing bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and parasites can also upset the balance. Researchers are exploring whether probiotics could halt these unfriendly agents in the first place and/or suppress their growth and activity in conditions like:

  • Infectious diarrhea
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease)
  • Infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a bacterium that causes most ulcers and many types of chronic stomach inflammation
  • Tooth decay and periodontal disease
  • Vaginal infections
  • Stomach and respiratory infections that children acquire in daycare
  • Skin infections
  • TumoursProbiotics medicinenet.com

Probiotics contribute to well-being in various ways as shown in the figure

13 WO10096564 Dietary Supplements containing Polyunsaturated Omega-3 Fatty acids and Probiotic Bacteria with potential Gastrointestinal and Dermatological benefits This invention provides a new family of dietary supplements containing polyunsaturated fatty acids, a probiotic culture, and optionally hydrolyzed collagen. The prototype supplement contains cranberry seed oil as a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, along with Vitamin E. The prototype supplement also contains a special strain of Lactobacillus casei as well as fish collagen. Nutritional supplements of this invention can be provided in capsule or tablet form, or as a food item such as a chocolate confectionary. Each of the three ingredients confers benefits on their own, allowing the consumer to get three nutritional supplements in the convenience of a single product. The ingredients are also believed to work synergistically to achieve a wider and more durable overall effect.; In human clinical trials, consumption of the dietary supplement was associated subjective observations of improvement in softness and moisture of facial skin, reduction in wrinkles, and improvement in function of the gastrointestinal tract. 26-Aug-10 Koide Yoshiteru Probiohealth LLC [US]; Koide Yoshiteru [US]
