There is some early evidence that certain strains of Lactobacillus fermentum may have synergistic effects with NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide).
Both reduce inflammation and influence key enzymes SOD2 and CAT in the skin and therefore may protect against skin damage caused by UV radiation, however further research is needed.
With skin ageing accelerated by inflammation and free radical damage, these two compounds offer a promising avenue for skin protection and repair.
The need to know
What are the benefits?
Skin health probiotic 10 billion CFU
Helps with inflammation and sensitivity skin
Supports skin longevity pathways
Works synergistically with NMN
Lactobacillus fermentum has shown its potential to reduce inflammation by curbing harmful molecules.
By lowering cholesterol synthesised in the liver, it reduces the levels of harmful molecules that incite inflammation.
Independent studies have underscored its skin benefits, which include anti-inflammatory actions, pigmentation reduction, and promoting the production of type I procollagen 1.
b) Role of NMN:
NMN amplifies NAD levels, which is crucial for cell health. This, in turn, increases the presence of vital enzymes like catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) in both the liver and skin.
These enzymes are pivotal in shielding against UV radiation damage and curtailing inflammation.
Furthermore, NMN empowers NAD-dependent sirtuin proteins, which are responsible for DNA maintenance and damage repair
How will I know its working?
Reduced Redness and Inflammation: Noticeable decrease in skin redness, irritation, or puffiness, showcasing the anti-inflammatory effects of Lactobacillus fermentum.
Enhanced Skin Elasticity: Your skin might feel more supple and have fewer fine lines, indicating the positive impact of NMN on skin cell health.
Improved Skin Sensitivity: A marked reduction in skin sensitivity after UV exposure.
When to take it?
Take 1 capsule daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.
For optimal results take alongside 500mg of NMN.
Serving Size 1 Vegetarian Capsule

Did you know?
Historical Staple: Lactobacillus fermentum has been an unintentional ally to humans for centuries. Before the advent of refrigeration, fermentation was a pivotal method to preserve food. Fermented foods, enriched with bacteria like Lactobacillus fermentum, have been staples in diets worldwide, from kimchi in Korea to sauerkraut in Germany.
Beyond Gut Health: While Lactobacillus fermentum is often recognised for its gut health benefits, recent studies suggest its potential in other areas of health too. For instance, this probiotic strain has been associated with improved skin health, reduced inflammation, and even a modulating effect on cholesterol levels in the body.
Natural Defender: Lactobacillus fermentum can produce antimicrobial substances that can inhibit harmful bacteria growth. This natural defence mechanism has made it a subject of interest in the development of natural preservatives and even potential treatments for bacterial infections.
