Probiotics and Psoriasis
Support and advice about probiotics and psoriasis.
Kefir is a probiotic drink that can be made with water and sugar or milk. The kefir grains are specific to the type of kefir, water or milk. Milk kefir is similiar to yogurt. In addition to the probiotic benefit the kefir also ferments things you put in it like turmeric increasing their bioavailabilty. I believe fermented turmeric, ginger, and pineapple in kombucha cleared up my psoriasis. Some people use turmeric powder in teas and drinks with limited results. The problem is the concentration of the key ingredient curcumin is low in the powders and the bioavailability is low. I believe fermenting the juices from things like ginger, turmeric, galangal, and lemon grass may be much more effective in providing beneficial results than taking them in powder or pill form.

People with psoriasis often have higher amounts of inflammation-causing bacteria in their intestine, so there are a lot of conversations around probiotics and their effect on psoriasis.
