LKM512 yogurt consumption improves the intestinal environment and induces the T-helper type 1 cytokine in adult patients with intractable atopic dermatitis
While many may find it strange that what happens in the gut affects the skin, this is a pretty well accepted route of treatment for many skin disorders. I’ve found that, in infants, adding in probiotics can very rapidly turn around eczema. In adults, where the patterns are much more ingrained, the results are not usually as dramatic.
This study finds that consumption of a specifically designed yogurt that contains probiotics can help with atopic dermatitis scores in adults.
