I’ve always been passionate about creating beauty and wellbeing products to help you look and feel your best. In fact, this was the whole reason I founded The Beauty Chef way back in 2009.

Over the years, our team of experts and I have created a number of powders, elixirs and topical products to support your skin and gut microbiome so you can glow from the inside out. But we’ve never created a capsule… until now. 

Our newest launch SUPERGENES™ is a collection of five products—SLEEP SUPPORT, MENOPAUSAL BALANCE, PMS SUPPORT, STRESS & ANXIETY RELIEF and HEALTHY HAIR & NAILS—that target some of the most prevalent lifestyle problems using a carefully-selected combination of medicinal herbs, evidence-based probiotics and nutrients.

Throughout the course of our lives, there are a number of health concerns that can throw our bodies out of balance. Often, this can result in uncomfortable symptoms—for example: hot flashes during menopause or feeling restless during a period of mild anxiety—that can have a flow-on effect, causing issues with our skin and even knocking our self-confidence. Ultimately, this is what inspired me to create SUPERGENES™ as a targeted solution to help you become the best version of yourself and feel SUPER.


Over four years in the making, SUPERGENES™ is unlike anything we’ve created before. For starters, the range comes in capsule form—this was important to me during the product development process as I wanted to create a convenient delivery system so that SUPERGENES™ can slot easily into your existing wellness routine.

I’ve always been an advocate for therapeutic doses of herbs and evidence-based probiotics—and that’s why I created SUPERGENES™ as a powerful lifestyle solution comprised of intensive herbal probiotics. Our gut microbes have a profound effect on our bodies. Did you know that we have 150x more microbial genes than we have human genes? This means that when we nourish our gut and maintain a thriving microbiome, we can become SUPER.

Each product in the SUPERGENES™ collection contains an exclusive GUT5Y™ probiotic strain that is unique to that particular formula. These strains have been studied for their impact on human health and specifically selected to maximise benefits. 

At The Beauty Chef, we like to approach health concerns from a holistic point of view. In addition to our GUT5Y™ strains, each SUPERGENES™ product contains a selection of hand-picked herbal extracts and nutrients. For example: SLEEP SUPPORT is supercharged with California poppy, an ingredient traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine to help manage feelings of restlessness and provide relief from nervous tension. Whereas STRESS & ANXIETY RELIEF contains clinically studied Affron® to support general mental wellbeing and help relieve symptoms of stress.

We formulated the range with one goal in mind: to help you take charge of your health and discover your SUPER. We can’t wait for you to try SUPERGENES™!
