An emerging area of science is focused on the gut-skin axis; the relationship between the gut and the skin and its role in skin conditions, such as psoriasis. AxisBiotix™ has been exploring the relationship between the gut and the skin and the potential to introduce natural bacteria to the gut and to effect a direct improvement to the skin.
Our goal is to develop a specific and specialised range of natural bacterial blends that help to restore microbiome balance within the gut and, in doing so, help to alleviate symptoms associated with specific skin conditions.
Would you like to help us in our research?
AxisBiotix™ will be undertaking a consumer study in February 2021. It will be called the BRIGHT study. Participation will help us assess our AxisBiotix-Ps™ gut-skin health supplement and hopefully help future users.

The Gut-Skin Axis
The gut-skin axis explains the connections and relationship between our skin and our gut. Collectively, they play an important role in our health and changes in our gut are increasingly being linked to the progression and severity of a number of skin conditions.
One of the main regulators of the gut-skin axis is the microbiota of bacteria that live in our gut and play a role in digestion. Research is increasingly linking this microbiota to our immune system, a healthy intestinal barrier and the absorption of metabolites. An imbalance in any of these can lead to changes in our skin. Maintaining a balanced gut microbiota is, therefore, vital for our skin’s health.
Psoriasis is an immune condition which varies enormously from one person to the next. When someone has psoriasis, their skin replacement process speeds up. A process that should take around 28 days, instead completes in just a few days. This can result in the accumulation of skin cells which builds up to form raised plaques on the skin that are often flaky, scaly, red and itchy.
AxisBiotix-Ps™ is a blended gut-skin health supplement composed of natural bacteria. It has been scientifically designed to promote a healthy skin and in particular to help alleviate symptoms associated with conditions such as psoriasis. AxisBiotix-Ps™ comes in the form of a simple sachet, the contents of which are dissolved in water and taken on a daily basis as part of your normal routine to help care for your skin from within.
