Healthy Gut Support is designed to promote the health and barrier function of the gastrointestinal (GI) lining. Its unique formula includes nutrients that support the gut mucosal epithelium and heal & seal the causes of intestinal permeability. The purpose of the epithelium is to allow the digestion and absorption of dietary nutrients while keeping unwanted toxins, microbes and food particles from passing directly into the body. Healthy Gut Support includes a high dose of L-glutamine (4 g), which serves as nutrition for the gut lining. It provides 400 mg of deglycyrrhized licorice root extract (DGL) and 75 mg of aloe vera extract, both of which protect and promote the health of the gut mucosa. N-acetyl glucosamine and zinc boost GI integrity.
A healthy GI tract has an epithelial mucosal barrier (strong gut/intestinal wall) that prevents the passage of food antigens (proteins), toxins, and microorganisms from crossing into the bloodstream. Stress, overconsumption of alcohol, food intolerance, microbial imbalance and poor nutrition can affect the integrity of the epithelial barrier. The health of the GI tract is dependent on the modulation of these factors. The ingredients in Healthy Gut Support help regenerate and maintain GI enterocytes while supporting the health of the intestinal mucosal barrier.
DEGLYCYRRHIZED LICORICE ROOT EXTRACT (DGL)†
DGL is a form of licorice root that has been specially processed to contain only biologically active flavonoids, without glycyrrhizin. This allows for higher dosing of the active ingredient, which helps maintain a healthy mucosal surface. Traditionally used to support GI-related complaints,1 DGL has been shown to promote bacterial balance, protect the intestinal lining, and promote normal levels of inflammation. Studies have shown that glycyrrhetic acid blocks the activity of two enzymes involved in the metabolism of prostaglandins E and F2-alpha, resulting in extra protection for the gastric mucosa.1 Furthermore, 760 mg DGL a day given over a period of one month was shown to promote the health of the GI mucosa, compared to placebo.1 In addition, several large studies of over 100 subjects using similar dosages of DGL have shown that less negative effects occur in those taking DGL compared to placebo.2,3
ALOE VERA LEAF GEL EXTRACT†
A demulcent that has been used throughout history, aloe vera has long been known to promote a normal inflammatory response. Studies have shown aloe vera is specifically beneficial to the gastric mucosa, in part by its ability to balance stomach acid levels and promote healthy mucus production.4,5,6 One animal study examining the effects of aloe vera on gastric acid secretion and gastric mucosal health found aloe vera balanced acid secretion and, at low doses, protected mucosa from excess gastric acid.7
L-glutamine is a main source of fuel for the cells of the small intestines and essential to tissue repair throughout the body. Enterocytes use the amino acid to help maintain the health of the mucosa.8 Inflammatory signals released when the body is exposed to unwanted toxins and proteins can trigger cortisol to increase the breakdown and increased utilization of L-glutamine in the small intestines.9 When the body is under stress, L-glutamine has been shown to become a conditionally essential amino acid for the regeneration and protection of a healthy mucosal barrier.10
N-acetyl glucosamine is the acetylated form of glucosamine. It is a mucin precursor and has been shown to increase the production of mucus within the GI tract.11 Colonic mucus production has been shown to be deficient in individuals with GI challenges. Research has indicated that the step involving N-acetylation of glucosamine is also deficient in patients with intestinal challenges.12-13 This can result in a decrease of glycoproteins that protect the intestinal mucosa.13
Zinc is an essential mineral widely recognized for its role in gut and immune health. Zinc has been shown to strengthen GI barrier function by supporting the structure of tight junctions. Directions: Mix 1 scoop (6.9 grams) of Healthy Gut Support with water or the beverage of your choice, once daily or as recommended by your health care professional.

Daily Probiotic Support
After 3 years of searching for a dairy-free, no-histamine probiotic formulation, Dr. Cabral finally found it. This is the perfect probiotic for those who’ve experienced sensitive gut issues or anyone that just wants improved health (both mental & physical), as well as staying lean. This is the Daily Probiotic that Dr. Cabral personally uses every morning and recommends for ongoing healthy gut & weight maintenance. 50 Billion Live Probiotics Per Serving (2 capsules every morning)
SCIENTIFICALLY STUDIED TO BE THE BEST FOR DAILY USE
This formula is designed for daily use as part of a nutritional wellness, energy, or weight management program to reinforce and sustain a healthy balance of gut microbiota. Reduced microbiota diversity and diminished populations of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus may impact the body's weight and glucose metabolism. Dr. Cabral's Daily Probiotic Support Formula provides high numbers of 4 Lactobacillus and 3 Bifidobacterium species that may play a beneficial role in balancing energy extraction from the diet, producing bioactive substances that support healthy carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, sustaining gut barrier function, and modulating inflammation.
HELPS ENERGY EXTRACTION FROM FOODS
Evolving research shows that probiotic supplementation may assist in maintaining a healthy weight and glucose homeostasis by helping balance the gut microbiota. It has long been known that the gut microbiota extracts energy from dietary substances such as fiber that are indigestible by the host. Dysbiotic microbiota may promote weight gain by facilitating the absorption of excessive calories. Conversely, rebalancing the intestinal microbiota with probiotics may reduce the amount of energy extracted from foods for host absorption and thereby help support healthy body weight. The substantial amounts of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species in this formula support microbiota diversity and a healthy balance of microorganisms in the digestive tract.
PRODUCES CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID
Evidence indicates that probiotic strains, such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus, have been shown to synthesize and secrete conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid that has unique effects on fat metabolism. Studies demonstrate it exerts a favorable effect on the way the body burns and stores fat. CLA may provide benefit by decreasing adipocyte size, increasing adipocyte apoptosis, decreasing lipogenesis, and/or increasing fatty acid oxidation. In addition, the CLA produced by probiotics may also beneficially support healthy glucose metabolism. Dr. Cabral's Daily Probiotic Support provides a variety of probiotic species that promote CLA production within the intestinal tract.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY INFLAMMATION METABOLISM
One of the likeliest mechanisms by which bifidobacteria and lactobacilli support weight management is by directly binding lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in the gut lumen. This action may be one of the principal mechanisms by which probiotics support weight management and glucose metabolism.
The seven probiotic species in Dr. Cabral's Daily Probiotic Support work together to help modulate inflammation within the gut and also provide additional benefit by sustaining normal gut barrier function and normal microbiota balance.

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…

Functional Medicine Formulations
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
Zero Compromise Policy
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the Equilibrium Nutrition line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled Equilibrium to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Consistency & Freshness
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At Equilibrium Nutrition we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
