Probiotic May Reduce Wrinkles, Improve Skin Elasticity in Women

As we age, our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic, leading to wrinkles. A recent study suggests that supplements of the probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum HY7714 may help improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles in women with dry skin.


Participants in the study included 110 women between the ages of 41 and 59 with dry skin and wrinkles. They were given either a placebo or 10 billion CFUs of Lactobacillus plantarum HY7714 daily for 12 weeks.


At the conclusion of the study, the supplement group had significantly higher skin hydration measures in the face and hands, when compared with the placebo. They also had less transepidermal water loss in the face and forearm, a significant reduction in wrinkle depth, a 17% improvement in skin gloss, and 22% improvement in elasticity.


Researchers from Korea Yakult conducted the study. It was published on December 28, 2016, in the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology.


Lactobacillus plantarum HY7714 is a probiotic that is associated with skin health. It is commonly found in fermented foods, including sauerkraut, pickles, brined olives, Korean kimchi, Nigerian Ogi, sourdough, as well as other fermented plant material. You can also find it in some cheeses, fermented sausages, and stockfish.
