Apparently, these nutraceuticals are used to prevent colon cancer by breaking down the enzymes which contribute it. The results which have been proven for the prebiotics and probiotics on the health and diet benefits made this topic to get elite on this conference “Nutraceuticals and food sciences” as one of the main track of this scientific session and further it deals with an interesting topics like prebiotics and probiotics role in skin and oral health, human GIT (lactobacillus sps..) and nutrition (fructo-oligosaccharide). Side effects and the risk has been placed in the sub-tracks. Transparency market research says that probiotics supplements is kept on increasing overdeveloped countries, which account for about $27.9 billion out of 2011 and expected to reach $44.9 billion by 2018, developing at a CAGR of 6.8% from the period of 2013 to 2018.
