Journal of Probiotics & Health (JPH) is a Peer reviewed journal that includes a wide range of research on Probiotics, gastrointestinal infections, gut-microbiota, study of impact of microflora on health, and its role in control of diseases, digestive system & microbes, fermentation process, etc. and creates a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal. The editorial office promises a peer reviewing of the submitted manuscripts to maintain quality.

Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for health, especially digestive system. Probiotics are called "helpful" bacteria because they help keep our gut healthy. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling growth of harmful bacteria.
Colitis refers to an inflammation of colon. Symptoms of colitis may include: abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, bloody diarrhea, mucus in the stool, cramping.
Probiotic foods are foods that contain live and active bacterial cultures. Probiotic foods also have benefit to the process of fermentation.
Prebiotics are usually in the form of oligosaccharides, which may occur naturally but can also be added as dietary supplements to foods, beverages, and infant formula. Chicory root is considered the richest natural source.
When probiotics and prebiotics are combined, they form a synbiotic. Fermented dairy products, such as yogurt and kefir, are considered synbiotic because they contain live bacteria and the fuel they need to thrive.
Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine focused on the digestive system and its disorders. Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract include the organs from mouth to anus, along the alimentary canal.
Bacterial toxins are toxins produced by micro-organisms, including bacteria and fungi. These toxins promote infection and disease by directly damaging host tissues and by disabling the immune system.
Fiber is of vital importance to digestion; it helps the body move food through the digestive tract, reduces serum cholesterol, and contributes to disease protection.
Intestinal parasites are parasites that can infect the gastro-intestinal tract of humans and other animals. An intestinal parasite can damage or sicken its host via an infection.
Autoimmune diseases arise from an abnormal immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. This may be restricted to certain organs or involve a particular tissue in different places.
Probiotic microorganisms can be found in both supplement form and as components of foods and beverages. Probiotics are found in foods such as yogurt, while prebiotics are found in whole grains, bananas, onions, garlic, honey and artichokes.
Probiotics side effects, if they occur, tend to be mild and digestive (such as gas or bloating). Probiotics might cause infections that need to be treated with antibiotics, especially in people with underlying health conditions.
Probiotics are said to restore the balance of bacteria in the gut when it has become disrupted through long-term antibiotic use or gastrointestinal disease. They are usually consumed as Supplements and are referred to as “Good Bacteria.”
Probiotics may be beneficial for brain function. Yakult is a delicious probiotic drink that helps improve digestion and helps build Immunity. Probiotics help lower blood pressure.
Perturbation of bacterial microflora of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may play an important role in the pathophysiology of some GI disorders. They may restore normal bacterial microflora and effect the functioning of the GI tract.
Infant probiotic use reduces risk of gastrointestinal disorders. During the first 6 months of a child's life, infant colic, acid reflux and constipation are the common gastrointestinal disorders.
Probiotics are "friendly bacteria" that are similar to organisms that occur naturally in the digestive tract. Certain strains or types of probiotics have been linked to all sorts of health benefits, from helping with irritable bowel syndrome and traveler's diarrhea to boosting the immune system.
Probiotics are one of the best supplements for women—particularly those concerned with urinary and vaginal health. Bacteria reach these areas by migrating out of the body from the colon; by virtue of proximity, they re-colonize in the vagina and urinary tract.
Probiotics may help slim down because they make the intestinal walls less permeable. To get the slimming effect, eating more foods that contain probiotics (like yogurt) and following a healthy diet helps low in fat and high in fiber.
Probiotics may ease anxiety and depression. The microbes living in the human gut not only affect people's physical health, they may also influence mental health, according to a growing body.
Kraut, Kvass, Kombucha are some of the natural probiotics. Adding probiotic rich foods and drinks to the diet is an easy way to give gut bacteria a boost and to keep the digestive system in proper balance.
Nowadays dog foods and biscuits are added with dessicated probiotic strains specific to dogs to improve their well being and growth.
Yogurt or curds are rich in lactobacilli and they act natural probiotics. Recently some food companies started adding special strains of probiotics like bifidobacteria and other firmicutes in the yogurts to make them much more healthy.
The dessicated probiotic bacteria have been made into capsules and pills to be used as a suppliment.
Till now there are no reports of probiotic bacterial side ffects. Howevever rational usage of probiotic bacteria are highly recommended.
Prebiotics are microfibre oligosaccharides which act as carbon source for probiotic bacteria. Probiotics are bacteria which play a role in the wellbeing of gastrointestinal tracts by competetive inhibition of putrefying bacteria.
Fruits, vegetables, milk, yogurts, honey and tubers are rich in prebiotic oligosaccharide sugars.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 then, impact factor=Y/X.
