Can Probiotics Treat Acne? Find it Out Here

Probiotics an effective alternative to treat acne

Researchers have found that probiotics may be an effective alternative to antibiotics to treat acne which are often caused due to chronic inflammation.

Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres which promote the growth of healthy bacteria (probiotics) in the intestine. Naturally one can obtain prebiotics from certain whole cereals, pulses, fruits and vegetables.

Chronic inflammation refers to a prolonged inflammatory response that involves a progressive change in the type of cells present at the site of inflammation.
It is characterised by the simultaneous destruction and repair of the tissue from the inflammatory process.

“As viable microbial dietary supplements, probiotics provide health benefits through fighting pathogens and maintaining the homeostasis of the gut and skin microbiome,” said study researchers from Rasoul Akram Hospital in Iran.

“Further research is recommended that looks into the long-term effects of probiotics on acne lesions given the short-term type of studies cited,” said senior author Masoumeh Mohamadi. (IANS)
