Probiotics and Eczema

Probiotics and Eczema

You may be one of the many that suffers from Aptomic Dermatitis, or commonly called Eczema. This skin condition is brought upon by a multitude of factors that include irritants, stress, allergies, or even genetics. The road to determining the specific cause can be aggravating and varies by case, however if you’re able to narrow it down to allergies, gluten being the most common, adding additional probiotics to your diet may help alleviate symptoms. 

Studies have shown that keeping adequate levels of probiotics in your gut, can lead to lesser symptoms and reactions to food allergies. This is because probiotics help regulate what nutrients and materials are absorbed into the body through your intestinal lining. If your eczema is triggered by food allergies, the extra help from daily probiotic intake can help reduce flare ups and reactions. 

How to add more Probiotics to your diet:

  • Taking a daily probiotic supplement, such as Ele, is an easy and simple way to ensure you’re getting the right dosage of live cultures and strains to balance your microbiome. 

  • Eat naturally probiotic rich foods. Foods like yogurts, kefir, sauerkraut, and pickles are healthy snacks as well as excellent sources of probiotics that can give your gut a helping hand. Other good options include sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, and miso.
