Streszczenie. Stan wiedzy na temat znaczenia mikroflory jelitowej w utrzymaniu odporności organizmu stale rośnie. Artykuł opisuje funkcje mikroflory przewodu pokarmowego w organizmie i przykłady zastosowań szczepów probiotycznych. Omówiono także pozytywne efekty oddziaływania drobnoustrojów probiotycznych na utrzymanie homeostazy przewodu pokarmowego oraz funkcjonowanie całego organizmu. Probiotyki stabilizują zaburzenia funkcjonowania bariery jelitowej oraz wpływają na metabolizm jelitowy.

Słowa kluczowe: probiotyki, mikroflora jelitowa, żywienie zwierząt, pasza.

Summary. Increasing knowledge underlines the important role of the intestinal flora for maintaining health and in the prevention of diseases. This paper describes microbial population of the gastro-intestinal tract, functional role and practical application of viable microbial cultures, so-called probiotics. Probiotics offer dietary means to support the balance of intestinal flora. They may be used to counteract local immunological dysfunctions, to stabilise the gut mucosal barrier function, to prevent infectious succession of pathogenic microorganisms or to influence intestinal metabolism.

Key words:   probiotics, intestinal microflora, animal nutrition, feed.
