pro­bi­otics for dan­druff

Better Nutrition - - TREND WATCH -

Bac­te­ria live on our skin as well as in our gut, and pro­bi­otics can aff ect skin health, even on the scalp. A Euro­pean study found that a specifi c strain of pro­bi­otics ( Lac­to­bacil­lus para­ca­sei ST11, not cur­rently avail­able in the U. S.) sig­nifi cantly re­duced dan­druff in men when taken daily for two months. Other pro­bi­otics have not been tested for dan­druff but could po­ten­tially help. Small stud­ies and anec­do­tal ev­i­dence show that a com­bi­na­tion of pro­bi­otics, avail­able in many sup­ple­ments, can help to treat acne.
