Abstract

The rise of drug resistance in microbial populations has led researches to find new natural alternatives that can be used safely in both humans and animals. Probiotics, prebiotics and synbiotics have been used for several years as growth promoters and as preventive measures against several pathogens with advantageous results in livestock. Of late, postbiotics which are derivatives of probiotic cultures, have been used in humans, animals and poultry. Postbiotics have been classified as promising alternatives to antimicrobials due to their multiple benefits on livestock health and performance. They are regarded as immune-stimulators, anti- inflammatory, anti-oxidants and ant-microbial, as well as growth promoters. Robust and long term studies are required in this area of research.
