Probiotics have been much documented for improving gut health. The consumption and research trends for probiotic microorganisms are increasing globally, attributed to increased consumer interest for natural health enhancing resources. Probiotics exert various health benefits mainly via the production of numerous metabolites. The constantly evolving concept of probiotic has led to the suggestion their metabolites may affect selected functions related to the recently hypothesized gut-brain-axis model. This has led to the possibilities of utilizing probiotics for anti-ageing properties.
