Damaged Skin Directly Harms Your Gut

A new study provides "direct evidence of a skin-gut axis" which proves how important the skin is for whole body health

Damage to the skin not only alters composition and microbial behaviour in the gut microbiome, but disrupts intestinal immune defence. 

This is the finding from groundbreaking new research by scientists at the University of San Diego which shows how the skin directly affects the gut. 

"...the skin... can cause dysbiosis of the gut and influence susceptibility to disease."

However, this study provides direct evidence that the skin could be just as important as the gut for whole body health.
