Probiotics are essential in human physiology. They play a vital role in providing immunity, producing Vitamin K, relieving lactose intolerance and shortening diarrhea. Besides; it promises the management of Atopy and other incurable conditions. Not only for humans but probiotics are also beneficial for other species including marine and cattle due to the Ecophysiological responses. Unfortunately, probiotics are much neglected by the wide use of antibiotics and other drugs which not only disturbs but kills them completely. As a result; an individual is more vulnerable to a wide range of critical conditions that could have been avoided otherwise. These potential benefits of probiotics require much attention of the healthy consumer while in the main market for over the counter remedies. To prove these effects in treating and preventing particular diseases and increase the acceptance of probiotics by the general population more clinical studies should be conducted in this area.
