Probiotics are a type of “good bacteria” that people can add to their diet via food and supplements. They balance out bad bacteria found in the gastrointestinal system and help primarily with digestion.
There are many types of bacteria that make up these probiotics, the most common being from lactobacillus genus and bacillus genus. Lactobacillus genus has been the most popular among markets until recently, with bacillus genus gaining attention in recent years. Other benefits of probiotics include:
- Protection from food-borne illnesses
- Lower cholesterol
- Prevention from urinary tract infections
- Immune system support
- Promotion of weight loss
Market Trends of Probiotics
Recent studies among health-conscious consumers show a growing interest in “functional foods”, or those that have added benefits. Probiotics are often considered a functional food, as supplements aid the body in other ways than basic nutrition.
Societal diseases like obesity and diabetes are causing an increase in health concerns related to digestion. These major factors are boosting probiotic sales both internationally and regionally as various audiences begin to see health-affirming effects of these supplements. Recent polls show probiotic use in individuals who do not have health issues as well.
Additionally, the growing market is receiving ongoing research regarding new bacterial strains for supplementation. This factual, considerable potential is assuring retailers all over the world that probiotic use will only grow in coming years.
