Probiotic comes from the Greek word pro, meaning “promoting” and biotic, meaning “life.”Probiotics is live microorganisms that, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and bifidobacteria are the most common types of microbes used as probiotics, but certain yeasts and bacilli may also be used. Probiotics are commonly consumed as part of fermented foods with specially added active live cultures, such as in yogurt, soy yogurt, or as dietary supplements.
