Probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics are the new concepts that have been developed to amend the target gastrointestinal microflora balance required for growth and development. Globally awareness about theprobiotic foods israpidly increasing and consumers are now very much conscious about their health and the food that they eat. Evidence for various beneficial roles of the intestinal microbiota in human health and disease is expanding rapidly. Perturbation of the intestinal microbiota may lead to chronic diseases such as autoimmune diseases, colon cancers, gastric ulcers, cardiovascular disease, functional bowel diseases, and obesity. Several scientific research studies rendering that the gut health in general is a key sector for maintaining the overall health of people, whose microbiota plays a key role in metabolism and nutrient absorption. A large of number of research organization are working on several aspects including Genomics and bioinformatics of probiotic microorganisms to produce multifunctional probiotic with one organisms or the mixture of several strains. Some effects attributed to selected probiotics or prebiotics have been proved by clinical trials, while others have been acquired on the basis of in vitro tests which need to be replicated in vivo in order to be validated. In Indian context so far Yakult a big brand of Probiotic foods sold in metro city against the huge increasing demands. Probiotic microorganisms especially Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium have been suggested to be associated with a number of health benefits. The present review is a collection of scientific information to enrich probiotic research and development internationally.

Keywords: Probiotics,Prebiotic,Human Health, Research and Development.
