The skin health supplement you need and why
03 Feb 2023
Our skin’s health is a fundamental part of our appearance, how others view us, and how we feel about ourselves.
Not only can it be considered important for aesthetics, but it is the body’s largest organ and the first barrier of defence against harmful pathogens entering the body. If the skin is compromised, your health can suffer, as well as your confidence.
That’s why we created the daily supplement Skin Health; we understand the importance of looking after your skin. Firstly, we must understand the gut-skin axis to understand the connection between gut health and the skin.
The Gut-Skin Axis
Many people attempt to heal their skin by targeting the symptom rather than the root cause of the issue. This temporary solution is similar to popping Sudocrem on a rash that needs a specialist ointment. It may make it appear better and less inflamed, but it won’t solve the issue and remove the rash forever.
Products you put on your skin to heal acne, fine lines, wrinkles, inflammation and collagen production often simply improve the appearance rather than solve the problem. Understanding the gut-skin axis will help you know why gut health is relevant here.
The gut-skin axis can be described as the relationship our gut has with the health and appearance of our skin. What goes on in the gut is crucial to understanding what goes on with the skin.
Our digestive tract (most notably our large intestine) is lined with bacteria that ferment the food we ingest to create proteins and molecules that control various processes within the body, including the function of our skin.1
The state of our microbiome is vital in regulating skin turnover, what is detoxified through the skin, inflammatory skin mediators, and so on! We require a healthy ratio of good to bad bacteria for our skin to function at its best.
If our gut has pathogenic bacterial overgrowth, it can affect the skin through metabolites produced by bad bacteria entering the bloodstream and presenting in the skin.2
If these harmful metabolites enter the bloodstream, they can present as rosacea, acne, inflammation, boils, psoriasis, eczema and a plethora of other common skin conditions.
What's so good about Skin Health?
Why should you choose to start taking our supplements? What makes us special? Well, to begin with, we use unique Multi-Layered Tablet Technology to ensure each ingredient is fully protected until your gut is ready to digest it, making for a superior absorption process. Essentially, we provide the ingredients that are really able to get to work and in the right places, too.
Each natural, sustainable tablet contains powerful, proven skin-boosting antioxidants, prebiotics, vitamins and botanicals, as well as more than 5 billion premium probiotics proven to positively impact the gut-skin axis in strain-specific, peer-reviewed clinical studies - in exactly their most effective dosages.
So, let’s delve a little deeper into the ingredients and just why they can be considered so special. The probiotic strain Lactobacillus Rhamnosus SP1 has been shown to reduce the appearance of acne and the symptoms of inflammation and irritation associated with eczema and psoriasis.
Another probiotic strain known as Lactobacillus Rhamnosus LB21 has been shown to reduce the appearance of atopic dermatitis by sending detoxifying and anti-inflammatory signals to your skin via the gut-skin axis.
Including iron and a blend of vitamins A, C, D, and E in our Skin Care formula positively impacts cell division and oxygen transport throughout the body. Supporting healthy oxygen transport reduces oxidative damage and wrinkles, and fine lines that can result from oxidative stress. Vitamins A, C, D, and E have also been shown to have photo-protective properties, which help reduce signs of sun damage and ageing.
Collagen production is crucial to maintaining a youthful look. Vitamin C is one of our favourite skin-loving vitamins for its contribution to regenerating a reduced form of vitamin E and normal collagen formation. It also increases the body’s ability to absorb iron.
So, what’s stopping you from giving Skin Health a go? Understanding the root cause of your skin issues can go a long way to helping you solve them, and your gut health might be that missing piece of information you’ve been searching for.
