Supplements during pregnancy
We found most pregnancy vitamins and supplements were missing key nutrients, both for mother and baby. For example, Choline is crucial for healthy brain development, yet in a recent study 60% of us are deficient, and folate is a far more effective form of folic acid. Our formula contains the 26 best available ingredients - for more balanced hormones, skin, energy and complete wellness, whilst equally supporting healthy development. And, no nasties either - no chemicals, fillers or binders.

How should I take Equi?
- We recommend you have your daily scoop or capsules after food - ideally breakfast or lunch.
- The powders have been specifically designed to taste good naturally mixed with water, however are suitable to be added to a smoothie or juice.
- For maximum taste and smoothness, we recommend powders are consumed in a shaker. These are available to buy here.
- It's up to you how much water you take it with, but generally we recommend around 200ml cold water (tastes better when from the fridge!) per daily dose. Mix very well before drinking and have it immediately.
- Ideally aim to avoid hot drinks for 10 minutes before and after to preserve the natural goodness, active enzymes and probiotics.
- If you have found you are sensitive to supplements in the past, or have complex health issues and intolerances we recommend starting with half a scoop or less, and building the dose up over the course of 2-4 weeks.
What can I expect when I start taking Equi products?
Our products have been formulated to make a noticeably positive difference to your health, using a powerful blend of ingredients to support and nourish every part of your unique and complex functioning in accordance with our Equi Eight Philosophy.
Equi supplements contain a unique set of ingredients designed to address imbalances, re-harmonise the body and in so doing, get you feeling your best. If you have struggled with health issues in the past this can be a sign that some underlying functions are compromised which can take some time to rebalance.
Negative symptoms are uncommon, but as with all supplements it is possible to notice changes in digestion and energy levels as your body adapts to your new regime, especially if you have never taken supplements before. Once things rebalance, the body generally begins to thrive and you feel lighter, brighter, more energised and productive.
You should reduce dose by half or more if you do notice any changes. Symptoms should not last more than a week, but if they persist we recommend stopping and speaking to your doctor. If you experience severe symptoms of any kind, stop taking Equi products and seek medical advice immediately.
How long will it be until I notice changes?
If you take Equi consistently you can expect to notice a number of positive impacts quite quickly, however this will depend on the person and their specific needs, circumstances and health. We generally expect energy to increase quickly, along with concentration, alertness and immunity. If you take the Beauty Formula daily, skin often feels brighter and more dewy within 2 weeks, with spots and troublesome skin clearing up in around 4-6 weeks.
Our 1 month long trial with 30 participants demonstrated:
- 80% reported better energy levels within 3 weeks
-85% reported brighter, clearer skin
What Equi products can I take whilst pregnant/breastfeeding?
We do not recommend taking Beauty, Original (capsules and powder) or Lean Formulas, Immunity Edition, or Glow Edition when pregnant or breastfeeding. However we have specifically formulated Pregnancy Formula to take throughout fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
If you are in any doubt about taking this, are on medication or have pre exiting conditions then speak to your doctor first.
Started taking this supplement 2 months before we got pregnant. It has all the vitamins recommended, plus the best form of folic acid. The Equi team were so knowledgeable and brilliant at answering all the questions I had when doing my research. I honestly feel like I am glowing. Now 5 months pregnant and this has been my easiest pregnancy by far. This product has definitely made a difference so thank you so much
I’ve been taking Equi Pregnancy since before conception & it has been great. It really helped me in the early months where I suffered with nausea & low energy & there was a noticeable improvement in how I felt in comparison to the previous supplements I took in my 1st pregnancy (Equi really was so much better!). I noticed really positive impacts on gut health & also on my skin - which is great in later months of pregnancy when you don’t feel you look your best!
I've been taking the Equi Pregnancy formula for most of my pregnancy and I've been feeling great.
I had a bit of morning sickness and low energy in the first trimester but apart from that have felt great. My skin has been clear this time around and my immunity has been surprisingly good too, which I definitely put down to taking these.
I plan to take them when breastfeeding for an extra boost.
