Journal of Probiotics & Health is one of the top leading journals in biomedical engineering which publishes novel research articles after rigorous peer-review process by at least 2 expert reviewers of the associated fields.
Probiotics and health are interesting fields which are concerned with the application of Aging, Neural mechanism, Probiotics, Prebiotics, Dietary component, Synbiotics, Host Immune System, Food chemistry. It involves developing devices and procedures that solve medical and health-related problems by combining their knowledge of biology and medicine with engineering principles and practices. Probiotics and health requires the analytical tools and broad physical knowledge of modern engineering and science, fundamental understanding of the biological or physiological system, and familiarity with recent technological breakthroughs.
The original definition of prebiotics was that they are food ingredients which are indigestible in the upper GI tract and reach the colon to beneficially influence the host by selectively promoting the growth and/or activity of certain bacteria in the colon. Given the large number of bacterial strains present in the GI tract, some of which are non-cultivable, the definition was revised to âa selectively fermented ingredient that allows specific changes, both in the composition and/or activity in the gastrointestinal microflora that confers benefits upon host well-being and healthâ. Consumers often take in moderate levels of prebiotics naturally from many fruits and vegetables including leeks, Jerusalem artichokes, chicory, onion, garlic, banana, and asparagus, but the levels of prebiotics in these food sources are generally too low to exhibit any significant effect on the composition of intestinal microflora.

OMICS is devoted to the prompt publication of original findings of the highest scientific priority and value that provide novel mechanistic insights, represent a clear advance over previous Studies and have the potential to generate exciting future research.
