Why is a healthy gut important to your well being? Natural probiotics in your diet.

There are people who go all out to ensure that their skin preserves it’s radiant beauty. They work out, eat well, take vitamins; even externally, in the form of skincare products rich in micro and macro-elements. This sometimes that’s not enough. Despite their best efforts, the way their skin looks leaves a lot to be desired. As it turns out, your intestines can have a bearing on your appearance. Research indicates a strong connection between the issues of the IG tract and various skin conditions. Why is this happening? Which kind of food can you eat when your gut doesn’t feel so well?

Why does a healthy gut make your skin healthy?

A healthy gut is an important factor to the functioning of the entire body. It is responsible, among other things, for eliminating toxins and other harmful compounds that we ingest through our food. It also plays a huge role when it comes to absorbing vitamins and micro-elements from what we ingest. Aside from that, a smooth running gut flora relieves inflammation throughout the body, including the skin, and strengthens the intestinal mucosa barrier. Otherwise, the high number of ‘bad’ bacteria would impair the functioning of the digestive system, leading to numerous inflammations, including skin ailments such as acne, eczema or even psoriasis. In this case, our body needs natural pre-and probiotics. Here are the most important:

  • • asparagus and avocados – when it comes to prebiotics, they are more valuable when eaten raw, as cooking them can destroy the beneficial properties of fibre. However, not all are as tasty as asparagus and avocados
  • • bananas – bananas have a very good impact on gut flora. They work great when combined with yogurt or kefir
  • • onion and garlic – these bulbs contain beneficial inulin
  • • dandelion greens – a very powerful probiotic
  • • kefir – this fermented cow and goat milk is rich in healthy microbes that strengthen the immune system and take care of your gut bacteria
  • • fermented vegetables – pickles, sauerkraut, beetroot, and more

Care is an important part of maintaining a beautiful and radiant complexion. The most important thing is to take care of what’s going on inside our own bodies. Be aware that any irregularity will appear on your face. That’s why intervention has to start from the inside. Combined with a healthy and active lifestyle along with decent personal care products, a healthy gut will leave your complexion spectacular and healthy for a long time to come.
