According to scientist-dermatologists, a major factor of skin health is attributed to the intestinal health. Accumulation of toxins in the intestine and compromised intestinal microbial balance can be a detrimental factor for skin health.
Why skin ‘feels’ bad?
A scope of negative factors in our life affects our health and beauty. Part of them are due to our lifestyle and habits (alcohol, nicotine, refined, freeze-dried and artificial products, medicines etc.), and part of it from the environment (pollution, stress etc.). But each of the factors has solely exerts a negative effect on the beneficial intestinal microflora and allows the growth of conditioned pathogenic flora; these processes affect our skin condition.
Supplement for beauty
Lactofiltrum is a unique two-component product containing prebiotic (lactulose) and a sorbent (lignin). Hydrolyzed lignin is a natural fiber derived from plant cell walls that possesses a high sorption force and non-specific detoxifying activity. Lignin ties up toxins, metabolites and allergens from the intestinal tract and is excreted unchanged from our body within 24 hours.
The second component of Lactofiltrum is lactulose, a disaccharide consisting of one molecule of galactose and one of fructose, hence also called galactofructose. Lactulose is fermented by the beneficial bacteria in our intestine promoting their growth, what we also know as bifidogenic effect. The growth of these beneficial bacteria is translated an increased production of beneficial short chain fatty acids that are essential of human health, as they regulate the colonic acidity and act possess anti-inflammatory properties.
A unique research was conducted at the Faculty of Skin and Venereal Diseases (Department of Dermatovenereology and Dermatooncology) of Moscow Regional Research and Clinical Institute evaluating the influence of Lactofiltrum on skin quality/ condition.
The study was conducted on thirty (30) volunteers (women of 25-27 years old) and compared the abundance of Staphylococcus Aureus, pre vs post supplementation with Lactofiltrum vs control group.
The volunteers in the Lactofiltrum group exhibited a dramatic decrease in Staphylococcus Aureus counts on their skin and normalization of disturbed automicroflora, that indicates an improvement of the skin’s defense mechanism. The control group had experienced no change.
