The Gut Microbiome

The gut-skin axis is an area of intense research, due to the impact of the gut microbiome on inflammation and skin barrier function,[37–39] as well as features of skin aging.[40,41] While more research is needed to delineate these impacts, the gut microbiome is considered an important factor in inflammation. Diet serves as the foundation for healthy gut flora, particularly a focus on fiber-rich foods, which beneficially support the growth of good gut microbes.[42–44] Fermented and cultured foods, with beneficial live microbes, may also play a role,[45] while prebiotic and probiotic supplementation research is ongoing to determine potential efficacy as well as dosing strategies.
