The bioactive peptides are protein fragments which have a positive impact on the intestinal
homeostasis. Intestinal homeostasis depends on the diverse functions of intestinal barrier including the
microbiological, physical, chemical and immunological barriers. Defects in intestinal barrier function
are associated with intestinal diseases. In this review, we will present current knowledge of the crosstalk
between bioactive peptides and intestinal barrier during gut homeostasis.
