The gut-skin connection: how altered gut function affects the skin | Chris Kresser

#Probiotics improve #skin conditions Another line of evidence suggesting a connection between the #gut and skin is the observation that probiotics improve skin conditions. Oral probiotics have been shown to decrease #lipopolysaccharide, improve intestinal barrier function and reduce #inflammation. he main function of the skin is to act as a physical, chemical and antimicrobial defense system. Studies have shown that bothstress and gut inflammation can impair the integrity and protective function of the epidermal barrier. This in turn leads to a decrease in antimicrobial peptides produced in the skin, and an increase in the severity of infection and inflammation in the skin. another recent study of 56 patients with acne showed that the consumption of a #Lactobacillus #fermented #dairy #beverage improved clinical aspects of acne over a 12-week period.
