Taking probiotics orally can benefit our skin through the system called the gut-skin axis.


Ongoing skin microbiota research clearly elucidates the connection between skin microbial diversity and our skin’s immune system.


Even more surprising is the elegant connection between our G.I. immune system, G.I. microbiota and the skin health behavior.


This distant relationship (gut-skin axis) is mediated by a number of immune cells which seem to get their directive from G.I. microbiota, including probiotics.


Supplementing specific probiotics have shown numerous skin benefits and improved immune function in the skin.


Best Used For:
• Support normal skin microbiome 
• Support normal gut-skin-brain microbial axis
• Support of skin microbiome species diversity

• Bifidobacterium bifidum - A valuable species often in short supply in adults' G.I. tracts. Makes nascent B vitamins, helps regulate intestinal terrain, and helps digest milk products.


• Lacticaseibacillus paracasei - Science reports that this species produces biosurfactants which can interrupt pathogenic biofilm adherence to tissues.


• Bacillus licheniformis - A soil-based, gram-positive probiotic species famous for producing beneficial enzymes. Has detergent qualities and can help"digest' dirt and grime. As a component of the oral microbiome, it helps prevent teeth-cavities.


• Propionibacterium freudenreichii - Has documented beneficial effects on the gut microbiota and inflammation. Its presence within human intestinal microbiota is correlated with immuno-modulatory effects, mediated by both surface components and by secreted metabolites.


• Lacticaseibacillus case - When taken orally, L. casei showed marked improvement of skin barrier function. Also, analysis of clinical data revealed a significant reduction in skin flakiness on the patient's face .


• Ligilactobacillus salivarius - Studies have found that this probiotic can have a positive affect on mood and dally stress.


• Limosilactobacillus fermentum - Is a highly studied organism with robust influence on skin immune response. L. fermentum helps maintain skin health through immune education and normal inflammatory response.


• Bifidobacterium lactis - Research studies suggest Bifidobacterium species provide added benefits to overall skin microbial performance, resulting in lower skin dysbiosis and inflammatory responses.

• Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus - Studies provide evidence for the efficacy in the development of skin tight junctions and possibly also skin sensitization in young people. The absence of a similar effect for other probiotics indicates that benefits may be species specific.


• Lactobacillus sakei - Lactobacillus sakei, which was identified as a potentially protective species in sinus biomes. This occurs even in the context of depleted sinus bacterial communities.
Sinus mucosal health is highly dependent on the composition of the resident microbiota.


• Lactococcus lactis - Animal model Peer's patches and cervical lymph nodes indicated that the intake of L. lactis 11/19-B1 generally suppressed all subsets, Th1, Th2 and Th 17, instead of activating Treg.


• Micrococcus lutes - Among the most abundant phylum present on healthy skin, Micrococcus lutes is found as a commercial organism and is for the first time developed as a probiotic.
