Probiotics have shown significant human health benefits for the majority of human diseases. Probiotics are predicted to be useful in the prevention and therapy of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, cardiovascular dysfunctions, inflammatory bowel diseases, neurological disorders, and other chronic diseases. Significant advancements have been made in microbiome and probiotic research. These include the development of mechanism-based probiotics, novel delivery methods such as micro/nanocapsules and powders, the design of probiotic formulations in food and drinks, and other innovations.
This Special Issue will cover the state of the art of research in probiotics’ role in human health and disease. Both original research articles and reviews on this subject are welcome.
