On January 21, 2014, Probiotic Action commented on newly research, the article, published on, cited new research conducted by the Royal Institute of Technology, the University of British Columbia, the University of York, and the University of Michigan Medical School, which indicated that “one specific type of gut bacteria, Bacteroidetes, is responsible for digesting a type of complex sugar known as xyloglucans. This sugar comprises up to one-fourth the dry weight of dietary fruit and vegetables, including onions, lettuce and tomatoes, and fully understanding the processes by which microbiota digest complex carbohydrates can help shed new insight on several different nutritional issues, such as the effect of prebiotics and probiotics on the body.”

Probiotic Action spokesperson Fernando Perez thinks that the new breakthrough could be a significant development in the continued understanding of probiotics and their effect on the body. He says, “This is another critical breakthrough in the integration of probiotics into the everyday diet. As this article says, the more that we understand how the human digestive system works, the better we can tailor our diets and supplements to make up for any deficiencies or health conditions. Probiotics are widely recognized as an important component in staying healthy. Discovering which enzymes break down and process which foods could be critical to understanding of our immune systems.”

Perez continues, “While we use probiotics as a critical component in our natural acne remedies products, they can also help people to achieve a level of health that they normally wouldn’t be able to. Keeping the level of healthy bacteria in the stomach at its optimal point is critical for everyone’s health. Studies like this one will continue to emphasize just how integral probiotics are to our health.”

Probiotic Action, a pioneer in natural treatment for acne, follows all probiotic-associated products to collect information in order to help educate the public on the power of probiotics for skin care and overall health. For more information, please visit
