Probiotics Send Signals From Your Gut to Your Skin
November 11, 2010
Much more is known about how probiotics work in your gut than is known about their effects elsewhere in your body. But new research shows that there may be signals coming from these gut microorganisms that are sent to your skin and mucosa.
According to Professor Christine Lang, the potential benefits of skin probiotics would depend on how each microorganism is selected, and the specific effects that they have on the skin.
"For now, [Lang] said that it was important to find how different probiotic microorganisms affect the skin microflora."
