Impact of a Healthy Digestive System on the Skin

By Sheetal Rawal

In Ayurveda, the health of the digestive system is everything. It is the foundation upon which the health of your skin and hair is built. Along with this comes the importance of gut health and skin problems related to unhealthy gut. Gut toxicity builds up over a period of time due to poor lifestyle choices and food pollution, amongst other reasons. Once a particular threshold of toxicity is reached, an intense toll is taken upon your general health and the health of your skin and hair.

In this episode of the podcast, Sheetal will discuss some important lifestyle errors that you may be making unintentionally to hamper gut health and your skin. For example, eating food with excess growth hormones, pesticides, flavor enhancers and color may lead to nutrition deficiencies and gut health problems. In one case, protein synthesis suffers due to a zinc deficiency. Paying attention and actively working to avoid these behaviors will help you detoxify your gut and improve your overall health. An Apsara product that also aids in reducing the outward appearance of gut toxicity on the skin, is the Sandalwood Facial Serum.
