has rolled out Skin Heroes, a pre and probiotic treatment that specifically targets the gut-skin axis, formulated for acne-prone (non-cystic) and dry skin. The company’s scientists have identified a proprietary combination of prebiotics and nine different probiotic strains that support the gut and promote clear, even and smooth skin. Hum Nutrition has recently concluded an eight week pilot study in which the Skin Heroes formula has shown to visibly reduce breakouts, decrease redness, improve skin hydration and balance the digestion.
The Skin Heroes supplements line specifically targets the gut-skin axis by balancing and nurturing the body's microbiome. To demonstrate the benefits of Skin Heroes, the company commissioned an 8 week consumer trial with 27 participants (23 completed) that was supervised by a dermatologist and a Registered Dietitian. At the end of the trial, 88% of the 23 participants that completed the study reported a decrease in the severity of their breakouts and 81% showed a more balanced digestion. Furthermore, skin hydration also improved, said the firm.
