Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs probiotics?
Everyone eating a modern diet.
In a natural environment your digestive ecosystem’s holes are filled by a constant influx of microbes already digesting the food you eat. In modern food, these microbes have been removed.
Who should be careful around probiotics?
If you have pregnant, nursing, have had a colostomy performed, or are under active medical supervision, please consult to your doctor before taking any probiotics.
What results can I expect?
A noticeable improvement in digestive function. It’s nice.
What is the recommended dosage?
A single capsule every day, taken 2-5 minutes before a meal.
Should I refrigerate Equilibrium?
Equilibrium remains effective without refrigeration. Gluten, Dairy, and Wheat free, and no preservatives. 100% safe natural product with no chemicals fillers or blenders added. Consume with confidence.
Do you support international shipping?
We support fulfillment to the US domestic market, and will soon serve European Union countries. Inquire through our email or chat service for shipping to your country.
How does Equilibrium differ from other probiotics?
Short answer: Equilibrium was designed using better science.
Longer answer: The probiotics commonly found in stores were created before metagenomics. These probiotics contain 1-30 strains of milk-digesting bacteria and wheat-digesting yeast. Large portions of the population have a sufficiently unbalanced mircobiome that these blunt tools proved beneficial: but now, General Biotics offers a much better alternative..
Metagenomics and high throughput gene sequencing are prerequisite to fully understanding an entire microbial ecosystem and were not available until about 10 years ago. The applications of these new techniques are only now reaching consumer products.
Using modern methods, we can do a much better job achieving the digestive potential hinted at by normal probiotics. By reasoning directly about ecosystem-level metabolic function, we can provide ecosystem-level fixes. This leads to a more robust solution than can be found using narrow-purpose strains.
Is Equilibrium safe?
Yes. Both by design and as verified during manufacture.
- During strain selection we used probiotics common to both our ancestor’s diets and rural diets. These microbes are among the most well studied on the planet, and are safe for human consumption.
- During strain selection and the design of our manufacturing protocols we sought out negative opinions from a diverse group of researchers, professors, doctors, other supplement manufacturers, and biological engineers. We then adapted our designs to address any objections. Several of our harshest initial critics are now taking Equilibrium.
- We grow our microbes using standard protocols designed for research level microbiology.
- We perform tests for contamination and known pathogens throughout our growth and manufacturing process for extra peace of mind.
In short: we take safety very seriously and have implemented aggressive systems to ensure it. Look for our holographic Seal of Authenticity for all EQ Internet Purchases.
What ingredients are in Equilibrium?
115 Probiotic strains in their natural ratios, prebiotic (ground organic flaxseed), and delayed-release capsules (plant-derived hypromellose). All-natural and safe Probiotic ingredients for potency and efficacy, and the PreBiotic to encourages growth of beneficial bacteria in your colon.
What species and strains are in Equilibrium?
Due to its length, the strains list has its own page.
Where is Equilibrium made?
Equilibrium is made in the USA, and designed in California.
Will this product help me with my digestive disease?
While our product may help you, Equilibrium was not designed to treat any diseases. It was designed to provide key dietary microbes needed for proper digestive function.
We suggest you discuss probiotics with your doctor.
