This study focuses on the impacts of probiotics on covid-19 infection. Probiotics have the ability for enhancing gastrointestinal tract health, modulating the immune system and reducing the occurrence of allergy in susceptible people.
In addition, probiotics are capable of supporting the host's immune system to fight viral infections. There is a relationship between COVID-19 disease and intestinal dysbiosis, also there are close links between gastrointestinal tract and respiratory tract infection.
Probiotics can restore the composition of the gut microbiota “eubiosis”, also regulating the immune response in respiratory tract infection and acts as an anti-inflammatory that can reduce the inflammation/cytokine storm and other symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea) in COVID-19 infection.
Also, strains that are related to the lactic acid bacteria (probiotic) might change the human intestine/gut microbiota through opportunistic bacteria growth suppression. Thus, stimulation and administration of the activity and growth of probiotic strains in intestine/gut might be specified as possible method for controlling food borne enteric pathogens.
There were numerous health advantages to the probiotics elsewhere in the gut; the probiotics have exposed for improving the immunity, reducing severity regarding specific allergic conditions and deliberate a few anti carcinogenic characteristics.
