Yoghurt (Probiotics) and Skin

Yoghurt is an excellent food for improving the condition of the GI and skin. Probiotics, an ingredient of yoghurt, play an especially important role in these improvements.

There is a very close interaction between the gut and the skin, and for instance, diarrhea often worsens skin condition. For good gut health, the ingestion of yoghurt is a well-known precautionary approach. The ingredients of yoghurt are protein, fat, calcium, vitamins and probiotics. As a probiotic supplement, yoghurt provides various health benefits. The ingestion of yoghurt (probiotics) produces beneficial effects such as anti-inflammation and inhibitory effect on allergic reaction. These actions lead to the improvement of atopic dermatitis, acne, rosacea and photoaging. We focus on probiotics that benefit human skin health and live in the microflora of the healthy gut.

Yoghurt is a common fermented food. The ingredients of yoghurt are protein, fat, calcium, vitamins and probiotics. The ingestion of yoghurt or probiotics is a well-known precautionary approach for good gut health. As a probiotic supplement, yoghurt provides various health benefits. Probiotics promote human health such as gut health (improving diarrhea and constipation), improve immune function, promote healthy skin and have an inhibitory effect on allergies. The ingestion of yoghurt (probiotics) produces beneficial skin effects such as anti-inflammation, moisturization, and improvement of the immune situation. These actions play a role in antiinflammatory skin conditions, leading to the improvement of atopic dermatitis, acne, rosacea and photoaging. Studies in mice and skin models have shown decreases in proinflammatory cytokines, as well as improvements in skin hydration, TEWL, and the production of skin barrier proteins. We can say that probiotics (yoghurt) improve skin condition and the immunological skin situation through the above actions.
