Research Shows Link Between Probiotic and Prebiotic Use and Clearer Skin in Acne and Rosacea Sufferers

Share Article

Probiotics, the friendly “germs” that live in the digestive tract, have long been associated with healthy digestion, but recent research is now showing that probiotic and prebiotic use has a beneficial effect on skin health, and acne and rosacea in particular. GI for Life's unique probiotic formula provides the probiotic bacterial strains recommended by dermatologists for healthier skin, as well as prebiotics and enzymes to help the probiotics work more effectively.

We created our probiotic formula to provide relief and get the intestinal balance back in order. Ours is different from other products on the market because ours contains PREbiotics and Enzymes to help the Probiotics work more effectively.

The Role of Digestion and Gut Health as It Relates to Healthy Skin and Acne

A recent news release by the American Academy of Dermatology discussed the complex nature of how probiotics and prebiotics can influence and interfere with the development of acne and rosacea. The model of how that works is referred to as the “gut-brain-skin axis.” The gut refers to diet and the brain refers to stress levels, so that the less healthy one's diet and more stress one is under influences the gut chemistry to shift the gut bacteria flora to an unhealthy one. The unhealthy environment causes the gut to leak, which releases toxins into the bloodstream. This is thought to lead to flare ups of acne and rosacea.

Oral Probiotics Can Counter Effect the “Gut-Brain-Skin Axis”

By taking oral prebiotics and probiotics such as by eating yogurt or a daily supplement containing live cultures, one can influence skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. The probiotics form a lining on the gut wall of healthy bacteria which acts like a barrier to the harmful bacteria, reducing inflammation and skin breakouts.

GI for Life Produces a High Quality Probiotic Supplement Formulated With Enzymes and Prebiotics

Our Probiotics Formula is specifically developed by board-certified gastroenterologists to help support the healthy balance and growth of good intestinal bacteria. Denise Lustberg discusses how the GI for Life Probiotics formula is different from everything else available: “We created our probiotic formula to provide relief and get the intestinal flora balance back in order. Our GI for Life formula is different from other products in the market because we wanted to make certain that our product contained PREbiotics and Enzymes, as well as probiotics. This gives the probiotic bacteria an opportunity to flourish and exert their influence more productively.”
