Probiotics such as lactobacillus acidophilus are believed to lower cholesterol, and also help with diarrhea and bacterial vaginosis.
On the other hand, increased use of antibiotics can result in imbalance in microbiota and reduces the healthy bacterial activity as well. This is especially significant for small children who have low resistance to ailments like diarrhea. The global probiotic market is expected to chip in to meet the demand for healthy bacteria activity with heavy investments in promotional activity during the forecast period.

Growing advancements in tracking consumer activity online and large penetration of smartphones in the BRICS markets are expected to drive growth of the global probiotics market.
