If you've been frustrated with your skin (acne, rosacea, eczema, etc...), I'm willing to bet you would benefit from a little "gut bug juice" ๐Ÿ˜‰ ... . Check out ๐Ÿ“ธ #regram post by Super Smart Esthetician ๐Ÿค“ @shannon_esti (you wanna follow her, she gets it!) ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ if you've got leaky gut and gut microbiome imbalance your skin will usually show it! ~~~~~ "Do you just work on your skin from the outside in, or do you work inside out as well? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ . . Iโ€™m doing a moisturizing face mask and kicking back some kombucha right now, so Iโ€™m doing a little of both. The mask is vitalizing, brightening with vitamin C and deep moisturizing to repair the lipid layer. All super important for getting a glow and keeping skin healthy during harsh winter months. . . Working on my gut health is also super important for keeping the skin healthy. There is a proven link between the healthy biome that should exist in the gut and the one that should exist on the surface of your skin. Research is showing more and more links between chronic acne, rosacea, and even eczema and psoriasis. Kombucha, like this bevvie here that I brewed myself (pretty simple to do!) is packed with probiotics and antioxidants that can help rebalance the gut microbiome. Plus, these are some things I noticed when I tried a kombucha challenge๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป ... . ๐Ÿฆ Decreased sugar cravings. ๐Ÿฆ Improved digestion ๐Ÿฆ Better sleep ๐Ÿฆ Boosted mood . . Try a kombucha challenge with me! You can start by drinking a half a kombucha a day for two weeks. Let me know how you feel, and how you look!" . . #FxMed #nutritionist #pharmacist #foodiefarmacist #kitchenfarmacy #foodisfuel #skinthatglows #FunctionalMedicine #functionalnutrition #nutrition

I find this absolutely fascinating ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿคฏ... goes to show that even though there's some reliable generalizations we can make, there bound to be variations on the "perfect diet" for individuals based on genetic and enviromental factors. . @drkarafitzgerald presented today at @instituteforfxmed #immune2019 on #essentialfattyacids ... . Another ๐Ÿšจ NERD ALERT ๐Ÿšจ is definitly iin order๐Ÿค“ . . ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝBackground: EPA/DHA are "essential" fats because we cannot make them, therefore we must eat them in our diet (fish, enriched eggs, etc...). . ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝPlant-based foods like flax contain ALA with needs to be converted into EPA/DHA by a set of enzymes ... these enzymes (factories) are usually not converting at a rate high enough to keep up with the demand for the end product (EPA/DHA). . ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ In this slide, KF talks about a 2016 study on South Asians who eat a primarily vegetarian diet... and here's where it gets good ๐Ÿค“. . ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝIn this study, they found that these folks had a higher than average conversion of ALA to EPA/DHA - their enzyme "factories" worked faster than usual due to the presence of a specific genetic variant ๐Ÿงฌ. . (Incidentally, nutrition nerds ๐Ÿค“, this also means that they are at higher risk of converting to inflammatory Arochadonic Acid ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ leading to increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes- often observed in this population when eating a more westernized, processed diet high in omega 6 fats) . ๐Ÿค” This makes me wonder, if in the near future as we learn more about these sorts of variations we can start to pinpoint why there's so much conflict about the "perfect diet" . . #FxMed #nutritionist #pharmacist #foodiefarmacist #farmacynotpharmacy #eatyourveggies #nutrigenomics #genetics #FunctionalMedicine #functionalnutrition #nutrition #eathealthyfats #personalizedmedicine #kitchenfarmacy #foodfacts #plantbasednutrition #foodismedicine
