Science

Read the science behind what Equi products can do to support your body, helping you find your Equi-librium

Evidence Based Ingredients

We understand the power of your body in balance.

Your body has 10 interconnected systems, its pillars of health. When they are nourished and functioning optimally you are strong and energised, physically and mentally.

Put simply, you look and feel at your very best.

This is why all EQUI products work to support women’s bodies on a deep level that encourages complete internal balance.

Yes, they address specific needs, but they do so by taking a holistic, whole body, approach. This philosophy underpins every formulation we create because we are passionate that it is the most effective approach to supplementation.    

By precisely calibrating the ingredients we blend into each of our products, each of the body’s 10 systems are comprehensively nourished. Every ingredient we incorporate is selected for its benefits to the female body and carefully researched within the scientific database for its benefits and safety for women.

01 DIGESTION

Even a perfect diet cannot nourish the body fully if food is not broken down and absorbed. The gut houses 80% of your immune system and communicates directly with the nervous system and brain, making it central to total body wellbeing. Poor digestion can be be a factor with everything from bloating to acne, hormonal imbalances and weight gain.
