The gut and the skin are intimately connected, which is why fermented foods, beverages and probiotics come in at #6 on our Top 10 list of Skin Super Foods!
This probiotic elixir is specially formulated to contain approx 6 billion good bacteria across 8 different strains of probiotics …and the addition of Turmeric and Australian native bush foods makes this very much a skin super food!
Turmeric is #10 in our Top 10 Skin Super Foods. It contains curcumin and other antioxidants, as well as Vitamins B6, B3 and Vitamin C.
Turmeric is a powerful anti inflammatory ingredient that’s also rich in antioxidants, which makes it a great anti-aging superfood.
Beauty Benefits of Probiotics:
- Probiotics introduce beneficial bacteria and other microbes into the gut that can help to improve digestion, promote bowel regularity and heal the gut. Which means you’ll be better able to digest and absorb all of the nutrients needed for healthy, glowing skin
- Having good bacteria in the gut can help with the elimination of toxins and free radicals in the body that can otherwise damage skin and cause early signs of ageing
- Probiotics have been shown to reduce systemic inflammation and oxidative stress, reduce carb cravings, prevent blood sugar spikes, balance hormones and reduce insulin driven outbreaks of acne and other inflammatory skin conditions
- Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidus have been shown to be helpful for acne and there is some evidence to suggest probiotics might be helpful for rosacea as well as building collagen and protecting against early signs of ageing
- Probiotics can help protect skin against UV damage from the sun (which can contribute to early signs of ageing), more research is needed in this area
Beauty Benefits of Turmeric:
- Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant which helps to boost the activity of the body’s own antioxidant enzyme, glutathione
- Antioxidants can help reduce the oxidative stress on the body that can lead to premature aging and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles
- The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric have been shown to be helpful for soothing and calming the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and other skin issues that have a basis in inflammation
- Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce free radical damage from sun exposure
- Vitamin C is needed for collagen formation and tissue repair. It helps to rejuvenate the appearance of skin, speed wound healing and protects against early signs of ageing
The boys from Gelatin Australia teamed up with Chef Pete Evans and BJP Laboratories to create this Lemon Myrtle and Turmeric bio-fermented probiotic elixir.
Probiotics are known as good or healthy bacteria and are present in a number of different foods such as yoghurt, fermented drinks and sauerkraut.
The Fermentation Process
The process is performed under controlled conditions, using a carefully selected blend of lactic acid bacteria that:
- converts the sugar into lactic acid, resulting in a product that is 99% sugar free
- retains antioxidants by removing oxygen during fermenting as well as packaging
- creates shorter, more soluble molecules
This process ultimately changes the structure, creating a bio active concentrated elixir with Turmeric, Australian Lemon Myrtle, Black Pepper and Ginger. The elixir contains 6 Billion good bacteria measured by NKCA compared to a 25 Billion pure probiotic in each 15mL serve.
Associated strains of probiotics:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Bifidus (Bifidobacterium bifidum)
- Lactobacillus Bulgaricus
- Lactobacillus lactis

Made with all natural ingredients free from the use of pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilisers, preservatives, colourings, stabilisers or food acids.
