According to an article on the website The Secret Life of Skin, “…the important [good bacteria] to consider in the context of skin health are Lactobacillus species and Bifidobacterium.” referring particularly to ridding the skin-biome of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacterium; the unwelcome bacteria that causes Acne. Results found that by introducing these important good bacteria to your gut-biome, while maintaining a good balanced diet, improved the skin’s condition. Each microbiome in your body, if you are not sure, is a community of microorganisms that exist to make the nutrients in your food available to organs.
So, what is missing from a perfectly good diet if the results don’t deliver a healthy glowing skin, free of acne, eczema, psoriasis or rosacea? The answer seems to be, at least to some measurable degree, found in our gut. Multiple studies, referenced in the linked article above, specify the bad bacteria responsible for acne as well as those healthy bacteria that combat them. These good bacteria can be acquired easily and introduced to your gut-biome in probiotics readily available on the market. Or you can drink the naturally cultured bacteria in a delicious drink that delivers those healthy bacteria and so many more called ‘Kefir’.
This seemingly magical drink is being tested globally with increasing results showing that it is the gut microbiome that needs to be focused on and that balanced biomes and friendly bacteria are the key to restoring immune balance and preventing chronic, AND chronically embarrassing, ailments like acne and other skin conditions.
You can make a huge difference to your healthy glow with as little as half a glass of milk or water kefir per day. Try it and let us know if you noticed any results, we would love to hear back from you. We at NuMESA believe in a healthy tummy, happy life!
