About the Journal

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 & Health is an open access journal; all the articles are peer reviewed by eminent people in the field. Journal strives to publish and get a worthy impact factor by quick visibility through its open access guiding principle for world class research work. Among Probiotics & Health journals list journal of probiotics and health having good reach to researchers and scientific community.

Journal of Probiotics & Health is an academic journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the field and making them freely available through online without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide.

The Journal is using Editorial Managing System for quality peer-review process. Editorial Managing is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of the Journal or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

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. They may help keep healthy by decreasing the number of "bad" bacteria in your gut that can cause infections or inflammation and restoring the body's "good" versus "bad" bacterial balance, which then helps to keep your body functioning properly.

Colitis refers to an inflammation of colon. It may be associated with enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine), proctitis (inflammation of the rectum), or both. Symptoms of colitis may include: abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, bloody diarrhea, mucus in the stool, cramping.

Probiotic Foods

Probiotic foods are foods that contain live and active bacterial cultures. Probiotic foods also have benefit to the process of fermentation. Probiotics are widely used to prepare fermented dairy products such as yogurt or freeze-dried cultures. During fermentation, carbohydrates in the food are broken down into acids by various kinds of probiotic bacteria and/or yeast.

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. Prebiotics are considered functional foods, so-called because they provide health benefits that go beyond basic nutrition. Although they are also available in supplement form, prebiotics occur naturally in a number of common foods with high fiber content.

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. Gastroenterology is popularly known as GI (which stands for gastrointestinal). Diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract include the organs from mouth to anus, along the alimentary canal. Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms such as heartburn, indigestion/dyspepsia, bloating and constipation are common.

Bacterial Toxins

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. Bacterial toxins are exotoxins and endotoxins. Endotoxins are cell-associated substances that are structural components of bacteria. Most endotoxins are located in the cell envelope. Exotoxins are usually secreted by bacteria and act at a site removed from bacterial growth.

Food Fibre

Fiber is also known as roughage. It is the indigestible part of plant foods that pushes through our digestive system, absorbing water along the way and easing bowel movements. 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

An intestinal parasite lives in the intestines (guts). Intestinal parasites are usually protozoa (such as Giardia) or worms (such as pinworms or tapeworms) that get into the body and uses the intestine as shelter. 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

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. An autoimmune disease develops when immune system, which defends our body against disease, decides our healthy cells are foreign. As a result, our immune system attacks healthy cells. Depending on the type, an autoimmune disease can affect one or many different types of body tissue. It can also cause abnormal organ growth and changes in organ function.

Probiotics Side Effects

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 Benefits

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.

Probiotics for infants

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.

Probiotic Pills

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 for Women

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 and Weight Loss

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.

Natural Probiotics

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.

Probiotic Yogurt

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.

Prebiotics Sources

Prebiotic foods are like fuel for good bacteria. This process helps build a healthy microbiome, which is our defense system against toxins.They have certain fibrous carbohydrates that nourish the good bacteria to help it to grow.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.
