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.

This Journal of Probiotics & Health is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager System is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Probiotics & Health 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 online 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 & Health is an open access journal; all the articles are peer reviewed by eminent people in the field.

Among Probiotics & Health journals list journal of probiotics and health having good reach to researchers and scientific community.

 

An Introduction

Probiotics are live bacteria’s and yeasts that are good for your health. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. The root of the word probiotic comes from the Greek word “pro” meaning “promoting” and “biotic” meaning "life". The discovery of probiotics came about in the early 20th century, when Elie Metchnikoff, known as the "Father of Probiotics" had observed that rural dwellers in Bulgaria lived to very old ages despite extreme poverty and harsh climate. He theorized that health could be enhanced and senility delayed by manipulating the intestinal micro-biome with host-friendly bacteria found in sour milk.

Probiotics

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

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

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.

Synbiotics

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

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.

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.

Related journals of Probiotic side effects

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.

Journal of Probiotics & Health, Probiotic Reviews, Obesity & Weight Loss Therapy, Advances in Weight Loss Management & Medical Devices, Eating and Weight Disorders, Cardiometabolic Risk and Weight Management, Plant Foods for Human Nutrition.

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.

Prebiotic 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 2015 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
