The microbiome refers to the collection of the trillions of microbes living in and on the human body. Bacteria dominate and many of them have evolved with humans over millions of years to play essential roles in our health. They play a supportive role in our immune systems, the strength of our gut barrier, aid in digestion and also make essential molecules and vitamins that we cannot make for ourselves. They are also known to play a role in crowding out pathogens and in helping us to stay healthy. Basically, we need our microbiome and the bacteria it contains and these bacteria need us.
Diet is one of the major factors that shapes our microbiome and its influence is seen from infancy to old age. All components of the diet influence the composition of our microbiome but in simple terms a diverse diet is good and fruits, vegetables and fibre are good in promoting a diverse and healthy microbiome.
People are also increasingly adding live bacteria to their diet either by eating specific foods or by taking supplements of live bacteria. These supplements are often sometimes called probiotics, that are live microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed.

A healthy and balanced microbiome is important for health and well-being. It is also increasingly being linked to our skin health through the gut-skin axis. A connection between our gut microbiome and skin health has been considered for over 70 years and more recently many aspects of this linkage have been validated. The AxisBiotix-Ps™ supplement has been designed to support this connection and to be the perfect daily supplement for skin health. Start caring for your skin from within!
You can’t just swallow a bunch of good bacteria and get a magically healthier microbiome and healthier skin. If a supplement doesn’t correctly balance a lot of different elements, you’re just flushing it down the drain. AxisBiotix-Ps™ is a blend of natural and live bacteria that have been specifically selected to help support skin health.
The AxisBiotix-Ps™ Complex
Each sachet contains stabilising agents and approximately 4 billion live bacteria selected to help your skin.
Maize Starch, Maltodextrin, Potassium Chloride, Hydrolysed Rice Protein, Magnesium Sulphate, Manganese Sulphate.
Absolutely! There are many different strains and types of bacteria, and we have researched and selected specific bacterial strains to include in AxisBiotix-Ps™ that are targeted to support and benefit skin health.
No. But we have included a specific number of live bacteria that we believe will have a benefit if taken as instructed. Consuming more will not have a negative effect but it will also not improve any benefits you see.
The bacteria in AxisBiotix-Ps™ do not need to be refrigerated to be keep alive. The blend has been designed to be easy to use and is stable at room temperature. The bacteria are in stasis, like being asleep, and are only woken up when you add them to a liquid as instructed.
AxisBiotix-Ps™ was created using specific conditions where the bacterial growth goes into a “sleeping mode”. The bacteria spring into action when they reach our gut, which provides the perfect conditions for them to get to work.
The most important thing is to take AxisBiotix-Ps™ at a time that will work for you. In order to give the bacteria in AxisBiotix-Ps™ the best environment we recommend you take the supplement either first thing in the morning or before you go to bed. Add the contents of the sachet in 100 mL (half a glass) of lukewarm water, stir and leave for 1 minute and then stir again gently before drinking.
Everyone is different, and has different challenges in maintaining their health. The time at which benefits may be noticed will consequently vary by the individual. Generally speaking, our skin cycles every 28 days and so it’s possible you may notice a benefit within this time period. If your health is already good, the blend may be more preventative and you may not notice immediate benefits. What’s important is that by taking AxisBiotix-Ps™ you give it the opportunity to help your skin.
‘Friendly’ bacteria supplements are only ‘visitors’ in your intestine and will disappear. So we believe it’s better to take a balanced approach and take regular supplements. For this reason, we have formulated AxisBotix-Ps™ for daily use and to fit in your routine.
Any supplement you take that you have not used before can lead to a re balancing of your guts. They influence some of the activities of your resident gut bacteria, and in doing so may impact how your gut feels. Bacteria supplements such as AxisBiotix-Ps™ in some people can cause an initial abdominal discomfort while your body gets used to the change. If this persists you should stop taking AxisBiotix-Ps™.
AxisBiotix-Ps™ is not currently suitable for people following either a Halal or vegan diet. AxisBiotix-Ps™ contains no animal products and is suitable for a vegetarian diet.
Your microbiome includes bacteria. These bacteria are sensitive to antibiotics, which may have been prescribed to you in order to treat an infection. As a natural bacteria blend, AxisBiotix-Ps™ is also sensitive to antibiotics and the use of antibiotics will inhibit its activity. Because we are studying your experience of AxisBiotix-Ps™ over a short period of time it is possible any antibiotics that you are using may affect your experience. So, if you are currently on a course of antibiotics then you should not take part in the study. Likewise, if at any point, during the study you start on a course of antibiotics then please let us know so we can advise you on what to do.
We have selected the ingredients in AxisBiotix -Ps™ carefully but if you have a known allergy or an intolerance to any of the ingredients, then you should not participate in the study.
There is no evidence that the modulation of our microbiota plays a role in COVID-19 patients but it’s a good question and scientists are beginning to investigate it.
