L'axe intestin-peau : exploiter le pouvoir des fibres prébiotiques - MyPureSkin

The gut-skin axis: harnessing the power of prebiotic fibers

We often look for the secret to perfect skin in creams and serums, but is that really the solution? What if the path to a clear complexion and healthy skin went through the health of our intestines?

This is what we understand more and more, as research on the gut-skin axis advances and sheds light on the complex communication between our digestive system and our skin. Let's dive into the mechanisms through which incorporating prebiotic fiber into your diet can strengthen both your gut and your skin.

The gut-skin axis

The gut-skin axis is a captivating and complex mechanism that highlights the deep relationship between our gut health and the condition of our skin.

Indeed, when the delicate balance of the gut microbiota is disrupted, causing constant inflammation, it can regularly result in underlying health issues throughout the body. Firstly, the appearance of various skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis. In contrast, a well-nourished and healthy gut, enriched with essential prebiotic fibers, plays a crucial role in strengthening skin health by promoting the vitality of skin cells.

This will ultimately lead to a brighter, rejuvenated and even complexion. This complex interaction highlights the crucial importance of gut health not only in influencing the well-being of our skin, but also in shaping our overall health, vitality and sense of well-being.

Prebiotic fibers: essential food for our good bacteria

Prebiotic fiber plays a vital role in maintaining optimal gut health, a crucial but often underestimated aspect. These fibers, from fruits and vegetables, not only aid digestion but also serve as essential energy sources for the beneficial bacteria in our gut.

Among these, GOS (galactooligosaccharides) stand out for their remarkable ability to nourish and promote the growth of friendly bacteria, thus promoting a balanced and thriving intestinal environment. This support of the gut microbiota is a pillar of overall well-being, influencing digestive health, skin health and immune function. By promoting a diverse and thriving intestinal flora, prebiotic fibers contribute significantly to our health and vitality.

Particularly in the fight against one of the major elements of poor skin health: low-grade inflammation.

How to Reduce Low-Grade Inflammation

Chronic low-grade inflammation comes from exogenous factors such as diet and lifestyle. It is frequently identified as the “evil of the century” as an underlying and long-term trigger for a multitude of health problems, including skin problems such as acne, eczema or psoriasis.

The complex link between gut health and skin condition is well established in scientific research. By nourishing the gut with a wide range of prebiotic fibers from fruits, vegetables and whole grains, we create an environment that promotes beneficial gut bacteria. Which helps to modulate inflammation in the intestines and therefore in the entire body, leading to a more harmonious balance within the skin.

Optimal gut health not only helps reduce inflammation, but also promotes a radiant, clear complexion, reflecting inner well-being. Prioritizing a diet rich in prebiotic foods can thus play a vital role in developing a thriving intestinal ecosystem, thereby supporting skin health and overall vitality.

What visible benefits can you expect from consuming prebiotics?

Improve skin hydration

Dry, sun-damaged skin can be a particularly difficult problem to solve. However, using prebiotic fibers like galactooligosaccharides (GOS) has benefits that extend beyond digestive health. Emerging studies have demonstrated that these fibers not only improve subcutaneous water retention and de facto skin hydration, but also play an important role in strengthening the balance of your skin's microbiota. By strengthening this internal hydration mechanism, GOS can help reduce the damaging effects of sun exposure, helping to preserve the elasticity and vigor of your skin, promoting a radiant, healthy complexion.

Strengthen the skin's barrier function

Our skin barrier, composed of epithelial cells and lipids, is our first line of defense against environmental aggressors such as UV rays, air pollutants and pathogens. The role of the gut in strengthening this skin barrier is crucial: healthy gut microbial diversity promotes a stronger barrier, thereby reducing susceptibility to irritants and skin infections.

Prebiotic fibers such as GOS are essential because they serve as food for beneficial bacteria in the gut. By promoting the growth of these good bacteria, they improve intestinal health and help strengthen the skin's protective barrier.

Recent studies demonstrate that regular consumption of GOS allows the skin to strengthen and thus reduce photoaging due to UV rays by 21%.

MyCollagenGlow: when your diet boosts your skin health

With an intimate understanding of skin regeneration mechanisms, MyPureSkin has developed MyCollagenGlow, an anti-aging food supplement whose broad spectrum of action targets your skin directly and indirectly by:

  • Nourishing her from the inside;
  • Helping to protect it from sources of premature aging;
  • Helping to repair damage caused by oxidative stress and other pathogens.

To do this, MyCollagenGlow consists of:

  • Marine collagen peptides whose bioavailability is very high;
  • Prebiotic fibers, one of the key roles of which is the maintenance of a key element of your immune system: your intestinal flora (much more important than we think in the maintenance of the scalp);
  • Biotin (vitamin B8), whose concomitant action with that of other active ingredients stimulates the production of keratin by your body and increases the growth rate of hair follicles
  • Zinc, whose role in maintaining the quality of your hair has been highlighted by numerous studies;
  • A complex of vitamins B5, B6 and B12 whose synergistic integration with biotin significantly increases the results that vitamin B8 alone can offer;
  • Hyaluronic acid whose colossal storage capacity allows it to carry nearly 1000 times its weight in water (in order to guarantee your body excellent hydration);
  • Vitamin E whose antioxidant action helps protect your cells from oxidative stress (and therefore premature aging);
  • Beta-carotene, precursor of vitamin A, whose benefits extend from the ability to maintain clear vision to the preservation of cognitive functions and, of course, the quality of the scalp (by helping to preserve your cells from oxidative stress).

So, are you ready to try a first treatment of MyCollagenGlow ? Take care of your skin and health today by making the right choice: targeted nutrition that puts your health in the spotlight.
