PROBIOTICS AND THEIR POTENTIAL ANTIOXIDATIVE ACTIVITY

Human population in the XXI century is struggling with the increasing incidence of such diseases as obesity, diabetes, cancers, food allergies and many others. Recent studies have shown that oxidative stress caused by reactive oxygen species and free radicals, may underlie the occurrence of many diseases. Probiotics are known for their beneficial effects on health and are established as dietary adjuncts. Researchers are trying to find potential probiotic strains which can exhibit antioxidant

PROBIOTICS AND MAMMALIAN GASTROINTESTINAL IMMUNE SYSTEM

Probiotics are microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed. These are also food supplements or food products containing specified probiotic microorganisms. Probiotic microorganisms colonize the gastrointestinal tract of the host environment, reducing the risk of pathogenic bacteria growth and their potential impact on the regulation of host immune responses. They also have the ability to eliminate pathogenic bacteria. The administration of probiotic microorganisms in addition to

Are Probiotic Really Safe for Humans?

Probiotic bacteria have been used as a health-promoting factor for a very long time. Nowadays, products containing probiotic bacteria are becoming more and more popular on the market. The term probiotics refers to the products belonging to the following groups: probiotic drugs (medicinal products – live biotherapeutic products for human use), medical devices, probiotic foods (e.g. foods, food ingredients, dietary supplements or food for special medical purposes), directly fed microorganisms

Optimization of Mixed Solid-state Fermentation of Soybean Meal by Lactobacillus Species and Clostridium butyricum

Soybean meal is the main vegetable protein source in animal feed. Soybean meal contains several anti-nutritional factors, which directly affect digestion and absorption of soy protein, thereby reducing growth performance and value in animals. Fermented soybean meal is rich in probiotics and functional metabolites, which facilitates soybean protein digestion, absorption and utilization in piglets. However, the mixed solid-state fermentation (SSF) conditions of soybean meal remain to be optimized

MICROBIOME OF THE WOMEN’S GENITAL SYSTEM

most common are those of the genus Candida. Disorders of the homeostasis of the vaginal microbiota rely mainly on the change in the ratio between lactobacilli and pathogens, in favour of the latter [26, 71]. In order to restore the natural vaginal microbiota, vaginal probiotics consisting of various species of Lactobacillus, isolated from the vagina of healthy women, are used. 2. Microbiome of the baby in the prenatal and postnatal period Until recently, it was thought that the intrauterine

promising alternative to antibiotics (Musikasang et al. 2009; Carter et al. 2017). Probiotics have the potential of competitive exclusion of pathogens and growth-promoting effects by supporting the absorption of certain essential nutrients, thus increasing total body weight, feed intake, and feed conversion rate (Yeo et al. 2016; Angelakis 2017). Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are the most common probiotic bacteria used in food fermentation, and in taste and texture enhancement in fermented food products

PATHOGENICITY OF LACTOBACILLUS SP. – RISK FACTORS, IDENTIFICATION, ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

Lactobacilli are found in the mucous membrane of the mouth, in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and in the genitourinary tract. It is known that lactobacilli have a beneficial effect on our health and are used in the production of fermented milk, yoghurts, cheese, and probiotics. However, in this article I show that lactic acid bacteria also cause many diseases. Lactobacilli produce lactic acid which acidifies the environment. There are some factors increasing the risk of infection caused by

Broad Prebiotic Potential of Non-starch Polysaccharides from Oats (Avena sativa L.): an in vitro Study

Prebiotics inducing the growth or activity of beneficial intestinal bacteria – probiotics producing short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) have lately received wide recognition for their beneficial influence on host intestinal microbiota and metabolic health. Some non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) are defined as prebiotics and oats being one of richest sources of NSP in grains are considered as potentially having prebiotic effect. However, information on fermentation of specific NSP of oats is limited

Exopolysaccharides Produced by Lactobacillus rhamnosus KL 53A and Lactobacillus casei Fyos Affect Their Adhesion to Enterocytes

Probiotics promote and help to maintain beneficial microbiota composition of the gastrointestinal tract ecosystem and have a positive impact on the host’s health. Production of exopolysaccharides is an important feature of probiotic lactobacilli. It increases the chance of their survival in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes adhesion to the epithelium; therefore, exopolysaccharides are important for the process of colonization. Two lactic acid bacteria strains were used in this study
