What Are Probiotics?
In India, the Probiotics Manufacturing Unit defines probiotics as live microorganisms that confer health benefits to the host when administered adequately. Alternatively, probiotics have been explained as live microbial supplements that beneficially
affect the host by improving its intestinal microbial balance. Probiotics are used to improve the health of both animals and humans through the modulation of the intestinal microbiota. It is of great significance to promote the development of human gastro intestinal nutrition and health by regulating the host mucosal and systemic immune function or regulating the balance of intestinal flora.

Meeting Global Standards In Probiotics Quality
The manufacturing units of Fido Pharma at Hyderabad (Telangana) and Panchkula (Haryana) are designed to meet international standards of product quality and environmental protection. The manufacturing set-up of the firm is GMP Compliant and ensures quality at all levels, from inventory to delivery of products.
