Starts in the Gut
Starts in the Gut
Our gut and our skin are in constant communication in a relationship known as the gut-skin axis.
To keep our body working in harmony messages are sent in response to external stimulus between our gut, our microbiome, and our skin to help regulate our immune, nervous and endocrine systems.
The gut and microbiome support the healthy functioning of every other cell in our body – including in our skin. The microbiome (that is, the 100 trillion organisms living on our skin and in our gut) is comprised of many species of microorganisms – mainly bacteria, some ‘good’ and some ‘bad’.
When we are healthy, our microbiome lives together in harmony and balance to support our overall health and wellbeing.
Lifestyle factors such as a poor diet, lack of sleep, chronic stress, drugs, alcohol and some medications can disrupt the delicate balance of the microbiome.
This imbalance, or ‘dysbiosis’, can lead to poor digestion, inflammation, oxidative stress, poor nutrient absorption and toxin build-up.
- Skin sensitivity and inflammatory skin conditions
- Acne, blemishes and breakouts
- Premature skin ageing and breakdown of collagen and elastin
- Skin barrier breakdown and skin dehydration
- Poor wound healing and post inflammatory pigmentation
In fact, research continues to highlight the link between a disrupted gut and skin conditions:
"As a sufferer of IBS, endo and adult-onset acne, the Ultimate elixir is a god-send. Ingestible collagen and probiotics are a staple in my routine but this high-quality product combines both of these plus additional skin and gut enhancing ingredients, making it an incredibly convenient option.
Since taking OPTY.NC daily, I have noticed much fewer breakouts and increased healing time of the skin. My skin is visibly more radiant, giving me the confidence to go make-up free most days now. I know this product will be a staple in my routine now, and I would recommend to anyone who is interested in improving their gut and skin health."
"Over the past few years my skin has become unstable - where I once had perfectly clear skin, I now get a few big, cystic spots each month. I'm left with post-acne hyperpigmentation that I've struggled to fade.
Since incorporating OPTY.NC into my daily routine, I've noticed the redness start to fade, less breakouts, and my skin feels plump and hydrated."
