Even a small dysbiosis in your gut, can lead to skin, mental health, immune and several other issues. It’s that big of a ripple effect! So now you get why keeping your gut mitochondria happy and healthy should be your number one priority?
Your gut is the main gateway for nutrients to enter your body and so getting it to functioning to an optimum level, is key. If it's blocked or can't process certain foods, then you lose out on vital nutrients and nourishment. So even if you’re eating really clean nourishing food, your body will not be able to absorb it.
When it comes to your skin issues, it’s a pretty good bet that either your hormones or your gut is causing the trouble. The100 trillion microorganisms in your tummy are the direct line of communication between your gut, skin and immune system.
Keeping your skin moisturized is key. When you allow your skin to dry out, it reduces elasticity. This means that when stretched, your skin will crack. The cracks are big enough to allow infectious microbes to pass through.
