probiotics for dandruff
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.
