Abstract: The word probiotic is derived from the Greek, meaning “for life’’, and has acquired several meanings over the years. It is a term used to describe substances secreted by one organism that stimulate the growth of another. It thus meant the exact opposite of antibiotic. In another words organisms and substances which contribute to intestinal microbial balance are known are probiotics. This definition relates probiotics to the intestinal microflora. Thus, probiotics is a live microbial feed supplement that beneficially affects the host animal by improving its intestinal microbial balance. The live-culture of natural and beneficial Bacilli can be introduced into an animal gut in massive numbers to supplement those already present. The increasing level of beneficial organisms in the gut can crowd out the existing pathogens by their proliferation and establishment in the gut. The recent definition of probiotics is given as a viable mono or mixed culture of organisms which, when applied to animals or man beneficially affects the host by improving the properties of indigenous flora.
