Lactobacilli are normal inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of many mammalian hosts. Their administration as probiotics in functional foods is currently a frequent practice, mainly because of their benefits to host health. It is therefore of interest to study the impact of administration of exogenous strains of Lactobacillus normally used as probiotics upon endogenous microbial populations. For this purpose, fecal and intestinal tissue samples were analyzed in a mouse model fed with… CONTINUE READING
