This is what Ethical Nutrients have to tell us about eczema.
What Is Eczema?

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is an inflammatory skin condition that results in red, painful, dry and itchy skin. These symptoms are not easy to live with by any means, yet so many people who suffer from eczema put up with these symptoms every single day. In more severe cases, eczema can even cause the skin to weep, bleed and crust over. This skin disorder can sometimes be unsightly, is often uncomfortable, and will almost always have an impact on the sufferer's quality of life.
Who suffers from eczema?

As with many conditions, the onset and severity of eczema varies from person to person. Many people are under the assumption that eczema only affects infants and children, however, this is not the case. Although eczema most commonly appears in young children, many of whom "grow out of it" eczema sufferers can continue to be haunted by this condition into their adult life. Additionally, people who thought they were lucky enough to escape the dreadful effects of eczema during their childhood may develop the condition as an adult.
How can I stop eczema ruling my life?

Although eczema can be a difficult condition to live with for both kids and adults alike, it is important not to let eczema rule your life. Eczema is often seen in people with a personal or family history of allergic conditions such as hayfever, asthma or eczema. It is these immune imbalances that must be addressed when looking at the treatment and prevention of eczema.

One factor that plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of a well-functioning immune system is a healthy balance of good bacteria within the digestive system. Good bacteria, also known as probiotics, inhabit the bowel and are responsible for maintaining optimal digestive function, supporting immune function and improving general health and wellbeing. Supplementing with probiotics can help to enhance the level of good bacteria within the intestines and restore balance if the gut flora is disturbed.

Which probiotic should I be taking?

With the wide range of probiotic supplements currently on the market, it is important to choose one that is specific for dealing with your health concerns. Many people may be aware of the positive effects of taking a probiotic supplement for their overall health, however, what many people do not realise is that different probiotic strains have different actions within the body. This means there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to probiotic supplements. Different people will benefit from different probiotic formulas depending on what strains are present. There is one probiotic strain - Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (also known as LGG) - that is well recognised for its beneficial effects in eczema. This particular strain of bacteria is one of the most extensively studied probiotic organisms and has a documented safety record.

Research shows that Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) can help to alleviate the symptoms of eczema such as itching. It may also reduce the incidence of children developing eczema and other atopic conditions including allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and food allergies. When given to pregnant and breastfeeding women, studies have found Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) helps to protect their children from developing these conditions. This probiotic strain is available in both the Ethical Nutrients Eczema Shield powder and the new Ethical Nutrients Eczema Relief Capsules.

Eczema Shield vs. Eczema Relief

Now that you know the benefits of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG), the next step is selecting the product most suitable for you. Eczema Shield is a powdered formula containing 20 billion Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) organisms per dose. This easy-to-take powder is very useful for formula fed infants (simply add 1/2 teaspoon into their formula) and children who have difficulty swallowing Capsules. It is also recommended for pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers, who would like to reduce the likelihood of their child developing eczema or another atopic condition.

For those who prefer to take a Capsule, Ethical Nutrients Eczema Relief is now available. Each Capsule contains 10 billion Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) organisms. A dose of two Capsules a day is recommended to help reduce the symptoms of eczema.
What else can I do to keep eczema away?

There are many factors that may be involved in eczema onset and severity. Making minor dietary and lifestyle changes can do wonders to assist in the management of eczema symptoms. Some positive changes you can make include:

*Consume a healthy well balanced diet that is rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and essential fatty acids such as those from cold water fish, nuts and seeds.

*Replace inflammatory saturated fats from foods such as meat products, poultry and dairy with the anti-inflammatory poly-unsaturated fats such as those from deep sea fish, avocado, olive oil, nuts and seeds.

*Identify and avoid any foods that you might be sensitive to, as they may trigger or exacerbate eczema symptoms.

*Aim to drink 1.5 - 2.0 litres of water daily to help support the detoxifying capacity of the body.

*Avoid exposure to toxins and chemicals that may aggravate eczema symptoms such as those found in many household cleaning products and skin care products. When possible, opt for bio-degradable cleaning fluids and skin care products based on natural ingredients such as vitamin E and olive oil.

What's next?

Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.

Used in Europe for many years, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) is one of the most extensively studied probiotic strains. In a clinical trial, LGG was shown to be effective in helping reduce eczema in children at high risk. The trial was conducted on 159 pregnant women with at least one first-degree relative with eczema or allergic rhinitis. The results showed that the infants whose mothers were given LGG during their pregnancy and breast feeding reduced the incidence of eczema by 47% compared to the infants in the placebo group. Studies have shown that talking LGG in infancy may be beneficial in decreasing the symptoms of eczema such as itching and sleeplessness.
