Introducing SUPERGENES™: the newest launch from the pioneers of inner beauty.
SUPERGENES™ is an innovative new range of intensive herbal probiotics, made from evidence-based herbs and evidence-based probiotics.
Each product in the SUPERGENES™ range is comprised of pure, traditional and science-based formulas to support your beauty and wellbeing needs. There are five SUPERGENES to choose from: SLEEP SUPPORT, MENOPAUSAL BALANCE, PMS SUPPORT, STRESS & ANXIETY RELIEF and HEALTHY HAIR & NAILS.
How does SUPERGENES™ support each targeted health concern? These are the ingredients you need to know.
Across The SUPERGENES™ Range
SUPERGENES™ are intensive herbal probiotics—and we think this makes them pretty unique. This means that every SUPERGENES™ product contains three things: medicinal herbs, nutrients and our exclusive GUT5Y™ probiotic strains. This combination of traditional and science-based ingredients makes SUPERGENES™ an innovative solution to modern health, beauty and wellbeing concerns.
SUPERGENES™ capsules do not contain magnesium stearate or bovine gelatine; we have used rice hulls instead. Similarly, we have used hypromellose in place of bovine gelatine. Sometimes, what we leave out is just as important as what we put in.
