The gut contributes to 70% of our immune system, where we metabolise hormones & make nutrients, create detoxifying enzymes and neutralise viruses. All of these agents can profoundly affect our life.
Imagine what would happen to our complexion and overall health and wellbeing If we’re not getting enough nutrients or digesting our food properly due to poor gut health, our skin won't receive the nutrition it needs to support. This affects skin elasticity and collagen production and will manifest in dull, lacklustre skin with poor tone. Similarly, if we are not detoxifying properly, the skin – as the body’s largest elimination organ – will suffer.
To achieve a healthy gut, we need to support good bacteria in our digestive system. Bacteria pretty much run the show! The gut is home to trillions of microbes that outnumber the body’s cells by 10 to 1.
We co-exist with about millions of different species of bacteria. But, there are good bacteria as well. Just think of the good bacteria as your skin and body’s very best helpers. More and more studies are showing how the nature of that bacteria can affect our health, our skin, and the way we feel. To look and feel our best, we aim for a predominance of good bacteria over the bad bacteria
Studies show that where there is gut inflammation, there will be skin inflammation. Studies also show that people who have a healthier gut, may have a healthier fatty acid profile in their skin, meaning their skin is more moisturised, hydrated and protected.
Studies show that our gut bacteria can also influence our mood, weight, blood sugar levels and our body's ability to fight infections.
Take care of your guts and energize the function with nutritious food and supplements and use the RASA skin care regime to double the action for a glowing skin. The RASA range takes its name from the feelings that are very "Indian". In Sanskrit, it means a response of the mind, a vital feeling - the spice of life. The emphasis is on naturally inspired products using traditional recipes from age old AYURVEDIC Wisdom.
