Single-strain Probiotic (30 Capsules)
28 Day Skin Acidophilus probiotic supplement
28 Day Skin Acidophilus probiotic supplement with 10 billion friendly bacteria per capsule - equivalent to 20 pots of probiotic yoghurt, but without the added sugar, dairy and fat. Each capsule provides a strain of friendly lactic bacteria called Lactobacillus Acidophilus which boosts the existing population found in a healthy gut, and offers full-spectrum support of the upper and lower bowel.
Probiotics help maintain a healthy digestive system by augmenting the body's natural intestinal microbial population beyond the amount already existing to help inhibit pathogens.
How they help my skin
Probiotics have been shown to reduce levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a hormone-like substance that drives breakouts. Excessive production of IGF-1 increases inflammation as well as sebum production, a key causes of breakouts. (1)
A recent study (2010) showed decreases in acne inflammatory lesion count by 38.6%, total lesion count by 23.1%, and acne grade by 20.3% compared with a placebo over a twelve-week period when the patients consumed Lactobacillus-fermented milk. (2)
