Clinical Application of Synbiotics

Research on the next generation of microbiome supportive nutrients, combining pro- and prebiotics as synbiotics, to enhance human health has accelerated in the past 10 years, but how does the collective research translate to practical clinical applications? In this session, we will review the current understanding on the effects of probiotics, prebiotics, and synbiotics on human health, discuss the mechanisms of beneficial actions of synbiotics and explore the clinical application of synbiotics to support microbiome balance.
