The Gut-Skin Axis
The gut and skin play key roles in immune health and are uniquely connected in purpose & function. The relationship between these major organs is referred to as the ‘gut-skin axis’ and multiple studies have linked gut health to skin health.
The main regulator between these organs is how the gut microbiome communicates with the skin. This is done by intricate interactions with the immune system and inflammation. Intestinal bacteria can enter the bloodstream, then accumulate and disrupt the skin microbiome.
Intestinal dysbiosis is a state of microbiome imbalance and contributes to common skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea. Although acne is caused by many factors, the gut microbiome can play a key role in the progression and severity of the disease.
Recent research has suggested that probiotics present hopeful potential in the role of prevention and management of various skin disorders. Probiotics are foods and supplements which contain a source of live bacteria that can have several benefits on the human body. Benefits include improved gut, mental and heart health as well as a boosted immune system.
Our Super Smoothies Berry Boss & Green Guru contain around 1 billion live and active bacteria Bacillus Coagulans to support the gut. They’re also high in fibre, vitamins and potassium!
