Dandruff is a common and persistent inflammatory condition affecting skin rich in sebaceous glands such as the scalp.1,2 Besides the discomfort it causes, dandruff is also socially embarrassing often affecting an individual’s self-esteem.2 Supplementation with Lactobacillus paracasei has been proven safe and effective in significantly reducing the severity of signs and symptoms of moderate to severe dandruff.2,4 More specifically, research has shown a 70% reduction in score for free dandruff and 72% reduction in score for adherent dandruff after 56 days of probiotic use.2 The efficacy of Lactobacillus paracasei (ST 11) is potentially due to its positive impact on the skin barrier and skin immune system.2,5 HMF® Hair & Scalp is a dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free formula with no refrigeration necessary and guaranteed potency through expiration.
