Answering Your Skin and Gut Health Questions
As you probably know, the gut plays a SUBSTANTIAL role in the health and well-being of countless systems in the body– this even extends to the outside of our bodies as well!
When things in our gut are running smoothly, we can see it in our clear, radiant skin– on the other hand, skin issues can often indicate that our insides need help.
Your skin is a window to what’s going on inside.
Here are some examples of the gut and skin connection at work:What do gut imbalances have to do with skin conditions?
Your gut contains TRILLIONS of beneficial bacteria which play a vital role in digestion, immune function, and nutrient absorption. However, when imbalances present as too little beneficial bacteria and/or too much bad bacteria, we can see inflammation that manifests on the skin as acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc.
For example, There are certain species of bacteria that we test for through GUT TESTING that are associated with acne. If the expensive creams and topicals you are using to clear acne are not working, time to rethink the root cause of your frustrating skin challenges.How does leaky gut cause issues with your skin?
Leaky gut occurs when the gut lining becomes compromised, which causes unwanted substances like undigested food particles, toxins, and bacteria to enter the bloodstream. This warrants an inflammatory response that can affect distant areas of the body, including the skin.
You must heal your gut in order to heal your skin!How is nutrient absorption related to your skin?
Ongoing skin issues are deeply connected to many nutrient deficiencies, such as vitamin A, vitamin D, zinc, and essential fatty acids.
Your gut is responsible for absorbing the nutrients from the food you eat, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and more. If your gut health is less than optimal, then your ability to absorb these essential nutrients can be impaired, leading to deficiencies that affect your skin's health and appearance.
Therefore, knowing this gut and skin connection is ESSENTIAL if you want a happy gut and healthy, glowy skin!
