Aging is the inevitable biological event associated with several physiological, behavioral, and lifestyle events, but people do not wish to become old. The market for anti-aging products is growing gradually, and customers are aware of active principles in the cosmetics. The probiotics are known for several health benefits; especially probiotics regulate the gut health and immune system. Recent studies emphasized the role of probiotics, and probiotic-containing fermented products in cosmetics…

A Review on Role of Microbiome in Obesity and Antiobesity Properties of Probiotic Supplements

The literature survey revealed that the antiobese activity of probiotics might be associated with their ability to alter the intestinal microbiota, remodeling of energy metabolism, alter the expression of genes related to thermogenesis, glucose metabolism, and lipid metabolism,and change the parasympathetic nerve activity.

Age-Related NAFLD: The Use of Probiotics as a Supportive Therapeutic Intervention

Gut microbiota restoration might be a complementary approach for treating non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and intervention of prebiotics and fecal microbiota transplantation, as well as probiotics will provide novel therapeutic approaches.

Natural Compounds and Products from an Anti-Aging Perspective

This review focuses on supporting the antioxidant system of the organism by balancing the diet through the consumption of the necessary amount of natural ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), essential amino acids, probiotics, plants’ fibers, nutritional supplements, polyphenols, some phytoextracts, and drinking water.

Novel Insights into the Role of Probiotics in Respiratory Infections, Allergies, Cancer, and Neurological Abnormalities

The major biological mechanism by which probiotic bacteriotherapy expresses its anti-viral, anti-allergic, anticancer, and neuro-stimulatory effects is described, including safe probiotic therapies aiming to medicate respiratory infections, allergies, cancer, and neurological disorders.

The Role of Probiotics in Colorectal Cancer Management

The manuscript summarizes the influence of probiotic supplementation on the health status of CRC patients and discusses the possible mechanism behind the protective effect of probiotics against CRC.

A Mini-Review of Human Studies on Cholesterol-Lowering Properties of Probiotics

The literature survey indorses additional studies on the cholesterol-lowering property of probiotics, which could help to reduce the risk of CVD and other dyslipidemia associated health issues.

Do Probiotics Improve the Health Status of Individuals with Diabetes Mellitus? A Review on Outcomes of Clinical Trials

The detailed literature survey revealed that the consumption of probiotic supplementation significantly improved the overall health condition of diabetic patients, and the probiotic intervention improved the fasting blood glucose, insulin sensitivity, and systemic inflammatory and antioxidant status in type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients.

Effect of Probiotics Supplementations on Health Status of Athletes

Probiotic supplementation improved the intestinal permeability, immune system, intestinal microbiota, inflammatory system, reduced the severity and incidence of respiratory tract infections, and duration of gastrointestinal symptoms and the literature survey summarized the effect of probiotic supplementation on health status of athletes.



Gut microbiota and aging.

Looking at the mutual influence between microbiota products, inflammation mediators and immune system, the modulation of gut microbiota may help to facilitate a physiological and non-pathological aging process and, perhaps, to contrast the progression of degenerating mechanisms.

Microbial Targets for the Development of Functional Foods Accordingly with Nutritional and Immune Parameters Altered in the Elderly

The elderly people in this study presented reduced levels of Faecalibacterium genus and Bacteroides and Blautia coccoides groups and increased Lactobacillus group, as well as reducing levels of fecal short-chain fatty acids when compared to younger adults.

Nutrition and the gut microbiome in the elderly

The present review aims at summarizing the current knowledge on intestinal microbiota alterations and other functions impaired in the elderly and to analyze tools for implementing nutritional strategies, through the use of probiotics, prebiotics or specific nutrients in order to counterbalance such alterations.

Dietary supplements containing prebiotics, probiotics and a combination of both of these, synbiotics show promising results with these supplements, although further longer‐term investigations are required to substantiate their use in elderly healthcare fields.

Gut microbiome and aging: Physiological and mechanistic insights

The present review summarizes the evidences related to the age-associated changes in intestinal microbiota and vice-versa, mechanisms involved in this bi-directional relationship, and the prospective for development of microbiota-based interventions such as probiotics for healthy aging.

Anti-Aging Effects of Probiotics.

Reports demonstrate that probiotics can restore acidic skin pH, alleviate oxidative stress, attenuate photoaging, improve skin barrier function, and enhance hair quality.

A comprehensive review on clinical outcome of probiotic and synbiotic therapy for inflammatory bowel diseases

The possible mechanism of inflammatory bowel disease development, probiotics, the clinical outcome of probiotics and synbiotic interventions for ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, as well as the adverse effect of probiotic treatments are summarized.

Human intestinal microbiota and healthy ageing

The effect of age and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on human intestinal microbiota composition.

The microbiota of a previously well-defined group of elderly subjects aged between 70 and 85 years were further compared with young adults by two DNA-based techniques: percentage guanine+cytosine (%G+C) profiling and 16S rDNA sequencing, and remarkable changes in microbiota were described.

The human intestinal microbiome at extreme ages of life. Dietary intervention as a way to counteract alterations

The current knowledge on intestinal microbiota alterations at extreme stages of life and tools for designing differentiated nutritional strategies by the use of probiotics, prebiotics and specific nutrients in order to restore a balanced microbiota and to improve immune and nutritional status are summarized.
