Prebiotics and the health benefits of fiber: current regulatory status, future research, and goals.

Prebiotics may improve nutrient uptake and general health.


Prebiotics and dietary fiber reduced the risk of developing diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and irritable bowel syndrome, according to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition. Experts analyzed data from published literatures at a workshop conducted by Life Sciences Research Organization . They observed that high intake of prebiotics was associated with increased assimilation of minerals and low obesity risk. These experts concluded that prebiotics contributed positively to the improvement of general health and well-being. However, further research still needs to be conducted to provide more convincing evidence that will help overcome the obstacles hindering the acceptance of claims that prebiotics are beneficial to human health by regulatory bodies.
