How should I take Equi?
- Though the powders can be taken first thing, we recommend you start by having your daily scoop with food.
- The powders have been specifically designed to taste good naturally mixed with water, however are suitable to be added to a smoothie or juice.
- It's up to you how much water you take it with, but generally we recommend around 200ml cold water per scoop. Mix very well before drinking.
- Ideally aim to avoid hot drinks for 10 minutes before and after to preserve the natural goodness, active enzymes and probiotics.
- Over the course of a month, you can build up to two doses per day per if required, splitting the dose morning and afternoon. The energising nature of the formulations may keep you awake if you take after 6pm.
- 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.
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 Beautiful 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 within 3 weeks
I have been sensitive to supplements in the past, will I be OK taking Equi?
We suggest that if you have been sensitive to supplements in the past, have complex health issues or intolerances that you start with a lower dose initially and build up over the course of 2-4 weeks whilst your body adapts to this nourishing and energising formulation.
If you are in any doubt, or have a pre-existing condition, we recommend speaking to your doctor before taking the product.
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. In order to address this and make lasting changes, you may notice some changeable symptoms when you first start taking Equi supplements.
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.
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 immedietely.
Is Equi best with or without food?
Some of the ingredients in Equi are best absorbed without food, however most people find supplements sit better just before, or after eating, especially first thing in the morning.
We therefore recommend starting by having them before/after/with breakfast or lunch or adding it to a smoothie. If you have found taking vitamins away from food makes you feel nauseas then we don’t recommend having it on an empty stomach. If you do try it without food and feel slightly nauseas then we recommend eating something as this normally makes it pass almost immediately.

My skin breaks out when I take supplements, will Equi do the same?
The skin communicates closely with the rest of the body and works synergistically with all organs, meaning it is common to notice changes depending on hormones, digestion, immunity and also during times of stress. Though most people only experience positive effects, if you have had skin problems in the past and are sensitive it is possible to get the odd breakout in the first week of taking the product as it works to rebalance and harmonise internal function.
Breakouts are also possible when we support detoxification, or experience ‘die-off’ symptoms in the gut whilst bacteria rebalance to make room for healthier strains of bacteria to flourish. If this occurs, it can be a sign that things needed to be addressed and rebalanced in order to get truly sustainable, long term results. You may wish to reduce the dose to half a teaspoon and build it up if you are worried about bad breakouts.
The body generally finds equilibrium after around two weeks, at which point it begins to thrive, leaving you lighter and brighter and more energised, whilst revealing a glowing radiant complexion.
I have bad skin– will Equi products help me manage it?
Skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis can be tricky to manage, with many resorting to strong creams and medications to help combat the issues. These sometimes work but often are only a temporary solution and can cause many side effects along the way.
Troublesome skin conditions are commonly linked with deficiencies in certain nutrients, as well as imbalances deeper inside the body. Hormonal strife, poor digestion, stress, lack of sleep and imbalanced immunity are all strongly associated with skin conditions and so to truly manage problems effectively and sustainably, it is vital to support all the inner functioning’s of the body.
Beautiful is deigned to do this, offering a 360° approach to supplementation. In doing so, many skin problems resolve but it is important to be patient as the true cure is rarely an overnight job. The body can take some time to readjust and this will vary from person to person depending on their unique issues, circumstances and requirements.
If you suffer with a skin problem, we recommend starting with one scoop and building up to x2 over the course of 2-4 weeks to ensure you are getting optimal levels of all the important skin-loving ingredients, as well as alkalising superfoods, balancing herbs and anti-inflammatory probiotics.
We also strongly recommend ensuring general good skin practises to speed up the process, such as eating plenty of colourful fresh vegetables, lean proteins, essential fats and gluten free wholegrains. Many also find eating a dairy and sugar-free diet helps clear up many tricky conditions. It is also vital to ensure you properly remove make up (use mineral based foundation, if you must) with a double cleanse and tone. Get plenty of sleep and ensure you remain hydrated.
