Growing importance of gut microflora in diagnosing gastrointestinal disorders propel the human microbiome market

In the last two decades diligent research activities conducted in the nutraceutical and medical food industries has proven the therapeutic importance of human microbiota. There are millions of microbial gut flora which are either symbiotic or pathogenic in nature are present in the human intestine. Symbionts are very helpful in the digestion and absorption of nutrients, synthesis of certain amino acids and aid in building the immune system. Probiotics mimic these helpful microbial gut flora to maintain proper homeostasis of the human health. Researchers throughout the globe have concluded that microbes finding safe harbor in the human gut habitat can be harnessed to detect diseases ranging from acute infection to chronic inflammatory conditions.
