Probiotics, microbial, human health, aquaculture, animal



Probiotics, a term that means “promoting life” where living microbes function to regulate the microbiota of a host body compartment. Hence, it conferring health-promoting activities to the host. Current research has provided strong evidence that probiotics microorganisms are beneficial for human health, aquaculture and animal. The use of probiotics is increasing dramatically due to a better understanding of their beneficial effects. Consumption of probiotics increases with overall potential welfares such as antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal activity, immunomodulatory abilities to enhance the health and welfare of humans, aquaculture and animal. This review emphasized on revising the existing data for the potential beneficial effect of probiotics on human, aquatic and animal for different species of probiotics. This review could contribute towards future studied to further puzzle out the mechanisms of probiotics action. Hence, the selection criteria for potential probiotics will be well defined in the future.
