GI health is directly affected by factors such as poor diet and a stressful lifestyle. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates and the low presence of fiber in the Western diet have been directly linked to the alteration of the GI microflora.1 Maintaining healthy microbial balance and keeping pathogenic microbes in check is an integral part of promoting optimal GI health and overall well-being. Candida albicans is one such organism. Maintaining normal levels of the unicellular yeast-like form of C. albicans and preventing it from converting to the invasive, filamentous form, can be a valuable strategy for patients with GI challenges. The body’s immune system is a complex and dynamic defense system, it requires optimal nutrition and abundant antioxidant support to help promote strong immune function.
Thyme Oil (Thymol)†
Thymol, the essential oil of thyme used in GI Balance, is standardized to contain up to 75% high-powered oil for enhanced GI support. In an in vitro study, thymol, as well as eugenol (essential oil from clove), interfered with the structure of the C. albicans cell membrane, causing cellular and metabolic changes to C. albicans. 2 In a similar study, thymol reduced the number of aggressive hyphal forms of C. albicans, compared to control.2,3 In-vitro studies show that thymol interferes with the production of C. albicans’s protective matrix (or biofilm), as well as the biofilms of mature C. albicans forms, thus creating an inhospitable environment for C. albicans to thrive.
4 Clove Oil (Eugenol)†
The clove oil used in GI Balance is standardized to contain up to 86% eugenol, a powerful antioxidant and potent microbial balancing agent in the GI system. In vitro, eugenol adversely affected the adherence of C. albicans as well as inhibited filamentous cell growth.5 In an in vitro study examining the effects of 30 different plant oils on C. albicans biofilm formation, clove oil was one of only four oils that showed significant biofilm reduction (28.57%) properties.6 In vitro, clove oil shows a strong ability to disrupt the normal metabolism of many GI pathogens. One in vitro study showed clove oil affects pathogenic organisms by promoting structural changes in the nucleus that limit cell replication.7 In addition, the essential oil of clove has been shown to have the highest ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value of any essential oil available. The ORAC value is a scale developed by scientists at the National Institute of Aging. The ORAC determines a compound’s ability to scavenge free radicals and thus reduce the burden of oxidative stress.
The oregano oil used in GI Balance is standardized to contain up to 75% carvacrol, a powerful antioxidant and potent microbial balancing agent in the GI system. In a study carried out in animals with microbial burden, carvacrol and eugenol significantly reduced the number of pathogenic organism CFUs (colony forming units) in the oral cavity compared to the non-treatment group. In addition, no conversion of the

The authors stated that both carvacrol and eugenol showed microbial balancing effects by limiting the replication of pathogenic organisms.8 A study examining the actions of oregano oil (600 mg/day for 6 weeks) in 13 adults, showed that carvacrol promoted a healthy microflora and the positive benefits were confirmed through stool analysis.
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…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
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:
- Heavy metals
- Standard dosages
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!
