Probiotics are a nonpathogenic live microorganism that can provide diverse health benefits to the host. Prebiotics is non-digestible fiber compounds that induce the growth or activity of microorganisms. Taking probiotics plus prebiotics could bring diverse types of health benefits.
Probiotics are consumed in diverse ways including dairy product, food supplements and functional foods with specific health claims. Recently, many reports suggest that certain probiotic strains or multi-strain mixture have potent immunomodulatory activity in diverse disorders including allergic asthma, atopic dermatitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
However, some of the probiotic strains have an adverse effect on people with underlying health problems or immuno-compromised individuals. In addition, however, the efficacy of probiotic administration is quite different depending on the type of strains and the amounts of doses and the underlying mechanism of action is still unclear.
