Can A Healthy Gut Flora Possibly Make You Age Less?

Do you know why your anti aging skin care is not working for you? As you age, you need to look beyond the skin. What would be your reaction if I tell you that introducing bacteria into your gut may help you age less over time? It is true that consuming probiotics or good bacteria improves the appearance of your skin, keeps you in good shape, and prevent as well as treat certain skin conditions.

 

I know this is promising. I never would want to look old, sickly and filled with ugly wrinkles. I want to grow old gracefully, healthy, and happy! And yes, of course, I embraced the fact that beauty always comes from within.

 

Here is the simplest anti aging secret you will ever encounter in your life. Believe it or not, it is just a matter of maintaining your gut bacteria balance. You have to try this, because this is what I unknowingly been doing all through these years!

 

Maintaining a balance between the good and bad bacteria in your gut promotes a clearer, glowing skin with less signs of aging. The probiotics introduce healthy bacteria to increase your good bacteria and create a barrier that can prevent as well as reduce inflammation.

 

Why is gut health important to aging? A healthy gut flora can prevent and treat acne, eczema, rosacea, and protects the skin from the effects of aging in an exciting new way.

 

Researchers found the probiotics along with a host of other microorganisms as a newly recognized organ that can potentially help in your aging skin care. Recent research showed that your diet and subsequently the microorganisms present in your gut can affect how well you age.

 

The gut in your bacteria can be your best friend or your worst enemy depending on how well you feed the good bacteria to their best health. Several studies have been coming out that explores the connection between the gut flora and practically every aspect of the human health.

 

During the study, they found out that the health of your gut plays an important role in helping your body produce and synthesize vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. So, if you have acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema, it could be an issue of an unbalanced gut bacteria.

 

Beauty comes from the inside. The effect of nutrition on skin aging has been a common field of interest among humans since ancient times to present.

 

The more chemicals, toxins, sugar and artificial junk you put into your mouth, the lower would be your gut diversity. Not to mention the scary fact, that taking even one dose of antibiotics may permanently reduce the diversity of the gut bacteria.

 

Antibiotics are designed to kill bad bacteria in the body, but they also could likely kill the good bacteria in the process, which may greatly reduce the overall diversity of your microbiome.

 

That is why it is so critical for those who suffer from eczema, acne, psoriasis, rosacea, seborrhea, and poor complexion problems to flush unfriendly bacteria and undesirable microbes out and thus, help improve skin conditions and complexion problems.

 

With literally hundreds of species of bacteria in the human body’s microbiome, it is critical that one should maintain a proper balance of species. If you have too much of one species, or not enough of the other, the microbiome becomes unbalanced and leads to serious health issues, including inflammation and aging.

 

You should look into immunity beyond the gut and learn how antibiotics can kill off good gut bacteria and make you more susceptible to infection. The white cells are absolutely critical to fight infection and life threatening diseases.

 

Inflammation is the hallmark of obesity and chronic disease, including aging. Skin and complexion problems have been associated with the body’s sluggish detoxification processes and an increase in the toxins or impurities in the bloodstream.

 

Intestinal permeability, called as the leaky gut, causes both systemic and local inflammation, which in turn contributes to skin disease as well as premature aging.

 

Studies have shown that both stress and gut inflammation can impair the integrity and protective function of the epidermal barrier, which leads to a decrease in antimicrobial peptides produced in the skin, and thus also, increases the severity of infection and inflammation in the skin.

 

The gut microbiota influences lipids and tissue fatty acid profiles, and may influence sebum production as wells as the fatty acid composition of the sebum.

 

This may explain why a Russian study found that 54% of acne patients have significant alterations to the gut flora, and a Chinese study involving patients with seborrheic dermatitis also noted disruptions in the normal gut flora.

 

Age onset decline is very tightly linked to changes within the community of gut microbes. In the quest to determine why some people remain in good physical and mental health until a very old age and others don’t, scientists suggest that a factor of healthy aging could be found in the gut.

 

Researchers have determined that your gut bugs, also known as gut microbiota, gut microbiome or gut bacteria, determine your rate of aging. Bad nutrition causes your gut to change, especially if you are eating a diet high in sugar, processed foods, and junk.

 

Various lifestyle factors influence gut bacteria, such as the antibiotics, infections, surgery, lack of sleep, stress, chemical exposure and environmental pollutants. When your body is in a state of low grade chronic inflammation, it causes a rapid decline in aging and the development of disease.

 

 

Anti wrinkle treatment

Good bacteria in the gut can help eliminate the toxins and free radicals that can damage the skin and cause the early signs of aging.

 

Diet in particular, can influence the health status and how fast a person shows the signs of aging in later life. An age related reduction in gastric acid production, coupled with increased basal gastric inflammation, can lead to lower micronutrient absorption from the diet.

 

Moreover, the impact of aging on the gut microbiota was found to be country-specific which is in turn influenced by specific diets and lifestyles.

 

A recent study has revealed the capability of the intestinal microbiota to alter and reshape its composition rapidly by variation of the diet for a short time (five consecutive days).

 

In modern diet patterns, several studies have suggested that variations in the gut microbiota due to animal based diets could be responsible for alteration in bile acid biosynthesis.

 

 

Probiotics

Taking probiotics, either through supplements or by eating food high in probiotics (such as kefir or other fermented foods), and improving the diet to include more fiber and less sugar and fat can help return the gut to health.

 

The probiotics will then create a barrier that lines the gut and prevents leaking and inflammation caused by it. Aging is defined as the deterioration of physiological functions accompanied by the development of age.

 

Based on several studies a connection between the human gut microbiota and aging is becoming evident. In one of the largest microbiota studies conducted in humans, researchers have shown a potential link between healthy aging and a healthy gut.

 

If you are serious about looking and feeling your best, then it is time to add beneficial probiotics to your diet. Fermented foods and beverages are the perfect way to obtain the probiotics your body needs.

 

Ageing and getting those deep wrinkles can be just a factor of diet and lifestyle. The link between a healthy gut bacteria and aging skin care is less understood. Maintaining a healthy gut microbiota is especially important to healthy aging and keeping a pretty face!
