Hippocrates once said: let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. Recent research in clinical nutrition agrees with Hippocrates opinion about food and health and as general saying Tell me your food I will tell you who you are. It is obvious that food directly influence physical as well as mental health and thereby influence the physiology and behavioural aspects. Research showed that probiotics are used for mental health benefits to host. FAO/WHO (2002) defined probiotics as living bacteria that, which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host.
