Según su definición original, un probiótico es un suplemento alimentario microbiano vivo que afecta beneficiosamente al animal huésped, mejorando su equilibrio microbiano intestinal1. Las definiciones recientes son más generales, y omiten el aspecto del equilibrio intestinal. Por ejemplo, Salminen et al2 definen un probiótico como «un ingrediente alimentario microbiano vivo que es beneficioso para la salud». Un microorganismo probiótico debe ser no patogénico y no tóxico y, asimismo, resistente… Expand

Probiotics as Functional Foods
The generalities of probiotics, the main metabolites byWhich they exert a beneficial effect, as well as the mechanisms by which they protect against various diseases are described. Expand
Advances in Probiotics for Sustainable Food and Medicine
Probiotics constitute beneficial microorganisms or their components reported for their health benefits to the hosts. A plethora of research conducted over the past three decades resulted inExpand


Lactobacilli, anticarcinogenic activities and human intestinal microflora.
Certain strains of lactobacilli might lower the colon cancer risk in humans, as in rats and humans given L. acidophilus, which significantly reduced the mutagen excretion after consumption of fried meat. Expand
Probiotics, cecal microflora, and aberrant crypts in the rat colon.
The results suggest that there is variability in the effects of bifidobacteria and L. acidophilus administration on both aberrant crypt formation and C. perfringens. Expand
Probiotics in human medicine.
The revised definition of the term 'probiotic' was revised and the evidence for the effect of live preparations on the human host was considered and some evidence from work with animals is presented which is helpful in understanding the potential benefits of this sort of treatment. Expand
Dietary modulation of the human colonic microbiota: introducing the concept of prebiotics.
By combining the rationale of pro- and prebiotics, the concept of synbiotics is proposed to characterize some colonic foods with interesting nutritional properties that make these compounds candidates for classification as health-enhancing functional food ingredients. Expand
Effects of Fructooligosaccharides on Intestinal Flora and Human Health
Clinical studies showed that fructooligosaccharides administration improved the intestinal flora, with subsequent relief of constipation, improved blood lipids in hyperlipidemia , and suppressed the production of intestinal putrefactive substances. Expand
Impact of Lactobacillus acidophilus Supplements on the Faecal Microflora and Soluble Faecal Bile Acids in Colon Cancer Patients
The supplementation of the fermented milk seemed to be nutritionally advantageous for the colon cancer patients and there was a trend towards a decrease in faecal bile acids in the aqueous phase. Expand
Effects of Administration of TOS and Bifidobacterium breve 4006 on the Human Fecal Flora
It is concluded that TOS, a new growth factor derived from lactose for Bifidobacterium, is a typical bifidus factor. Expand
The effect of consumption of milk fermented by Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota on the intestinal microflora and immune parameters in humans
The results suggest that consumption of L. casei Shirota-fermented milk is able to modulate the composition and metabolic activity of the intestinal flora and indicate that it does not influence the immune system of healthy immunocompetent males. Expand
Lactobacillus- and bifidobacterium-mediated antigenotoxicity in the colon of rats.
These studies show that most, but not all, LAB tested could strongly inhibit genotoxicity in the GI tract of the rat and that viable LAB organisms are required for the protective effect in vivo. Expand
Antigenotoxic properties of lactic acid bacteria in the S. typhimurium mutagenicity assay.
The results imply that some bacteria used in milk processing have an antimutagenic potential and that this property is specific for the bacterial strain. Expand
