Probiotics for Skin Health

Posted on June 07 2024, By: Margifox Distributors

Why should I take a probiotic?

Beginning with a probiotic is the optimal approach to harmonise gut and skin well-being. There are trillions of bacteria in and on our bodies, with over 2,000 species of gut bacteria identified so far. A diverse range of these bacteria is linked to good gut health. However, when the balance of gut bacteria is off – a condition known as dysbiosis – it can lead to poor digestion, fatigue, and problematic skin, among other problems. This imbalance is common in modern life, influenced by factors. Here are our skin health experts' top 5 culprits:

  1. Diet: Rich, sugary, and processed foods wreak havoc on your microbiome!

  2. Alcohol: Disrupts gut balance, leading to inflammation.

  3. Stress: High stress alters microbiome composition, but boosting good bacteria can help.

  4. Sleep: Irregular patterns negatively impact the microbiome.

  5. Hydration and Fibre: Essential for gut health. Load up on fibre-rich foods like Brussels sprouts.

A healthy gut helps us absorb nutrients better, which is great for our skin health. Research also shows that certain gut bacteria strains can directly benefit problematic skin in various ways. So, maintaining a diverse and healthy gut microbiome is key to healthy skin. Remember, taking care of your gut means taking care of your skin!

What is good gut bacteria?

Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli are commonly occurring bacteria in the human gut, known for their "good" or beneficial properties. They're frequently included in probiotic supplements and fermented foods such as yogurt. These microbes are vital for gut health, aiding in digestion and supporting the immune system. We recommend choosing beneficial bacteria supplements that are thoroughly researched and backed by scientific trials, with the highest possible quality ingredients, ensuring efficacy and the best results.

What is the best probiotic supplement?

The award-winning  Skin Clear Biome probiotic supplement includes four specific strains of bacteria, two of which are highlighted above, along with yeast and zinc. These ingredients were selected by our nutrition and scientific experts for their research-backed benefits on the underlying causes of problem-prone skin.

Bifidobacterium Bifidum: This is a species of the genus bifidobacterium and either lives in clusters, pairs, or even independently. This specific bacteria can help to improve mood, digestion, and reduce skin sensitivity and eczema.

Lactobacillus Helveticus: A species of lactic acid bacteria and naturally found in foods such as kombucha, kimchi and olives. It is known to have numerous health benefits, including helping to improve gut health, the skin's barrier and immune function.

Lactobacillus Paracasei: This is a species of lactic acid bacteria and is one of the most extensively documented strains. Which can assist in the digestion process, to absorb essential nutrients, and combat harmful organisms that could lead to illnesses.

Saccharomyces Boulardii: Did you know saccharomyces boulardii is not bacteria, it is actually a type of fungi or yeast and it's first reported study for skin was in 1989! It is known to assist in safeguarding an individual's gut flora while undergoing antibiotic therapy and contributes to the restoration of the microbiome afterward.

Zinc: Zinc is a vital nutrient for your body, it plays a role in hundreds of body biochemical reactions including digestion, immunity and cognitive function. Our bodies can’t produce or store it, so we need to consume regular sources. Supplements with zinc help nourish and maintain hair, nails and skin health*
