It has been found that that administration of a probiotic bacterial strain may improve sleep quality and reduce the number of episodes of wakefulness in individuals suffering from sleep alterations and/or insomnia and, specifically, induce a more mature sleep pattern in infants and young children.
Preclinical evidence indicates that the benefits on body weight translate into favorable metabolic effects. The probiotic bacterial strains, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains, have been consistently shown with beneficial effects on glucose homeostasis.
Probiotics are an effective way of enhancing the diversity and health of the microbiome in pregnant women. Probiotics given prenatally are an essential way for mothers to safeguard their health during their pregnancy as well as the health of their babies.
As a type of bacteriotherapy, probiotics provide a decrease in CFU counts of cariogenic pathogens. They are associated with decreased CFU counts of cariogenic pathogens and the inhibition of periodontal pathogens. Furthermore, they modulate the inflammatory response and produce substances.
Clinical trials have shown that these probiotics can play a positive role in restoring vaginal microecology and treating BV. Probiotics also avoid the abuse of antibiotics, which can cause drug-resistant bacteria to appear. Probiotics have no side effects and have great value in this application.
The human gut hosts an enormous number of microorganisms whose composition affects the epithelial barrier functions and the gut immune system. Prebiotics and probiotics exert beneficial effects by modulating gut microbiota and the immune system.
Probiotics represent a low-cost, large-scale alternative solution to prevent or decrease H. pylori colonization. Several mechanisms have been hypothesized based on in vitro studies of host intestinal epithelial or immune cell responses to probiotic strains. Probiotic bacteria can inhibit H. pylori by either immunological or non-immunological mechanisms.
Probiotics may exhibit antiallergic effects by degrading or structurally modifying enteral antigens, stabilizing aberrant microbiota, and improving the gut-barrier function. They can also regulate the secretion of pro-inflammatory mediators and development of the immune system.
