Minimize acne breakout and strengthen overall health

Answered by: Dr Ramzdhan

I was told that probiotics also help in minimizing acne breakout. May I inquire what kind of probiotic supplement should be taken to help prevent acne breakout? Also to help strengthen digestive system/stomach.

There are so many brands in the market, choosing one that is affordable but of good quality becomes very confusing.

Thank you.

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, it is not about which brand of probiotic is good as probiotic share the same purpose. The important issue is to choose which probiotic is suitable for you as certain probiotics have specific functions.

Probiotics that have been found to provide health benefits include various strains of Bifidobacterium , Lactobacillus and Saccharomyces . Many probiotic supplements contain a combination of different strains in the same supplement.

Most common probiotics for the digestive system is the lactobaccillus and Bifidobacterium which can be found in yogurt and dairy product. Any probiotics not under the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium genera might not be safe, and more research is needed before being used.
