Regular price £38.99


BioSoothe is a unique combination of nutrients and plant extracts shown to exert anti-inflammatory effects in the human body. The ingredients have all been shown to scientifically modulate or impact the many inflammatory pathways that exist in the body. Our ingredients have been combined in clinically relevant doses and in highly absorbable nutrient forms to create a highly potent, science-led, and effective anti-inflammatory complex. It is suitable for any situation where excess inflammation may be an issue. BioSoothe works well combined with the anti-inflammatory effects of Omega 3, and in some cases a probiotic supplement.

*NRV = Nutrient Reference Value


Liposomal turmeric extract (Soya), Bromelain, Delayed release capsule (Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose), Resveratrol, Alpha lipoic acid, Boswellia serrata extract, Quercetin, Sodium butyrate, Organic turmeric powder, Zinc picolinate, Ginger root extract, Bamboo silica, Vegan vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol).

Sodium butyrate has a distinctive acidic smell which some may find unpleasant, however, we decided to include it as an ingredient as it has been shown to reduce gut inflammation and we feel its benefits outweigh any potential momentary discomfort when taking.

Evidence-based dose

How is BioSoothe different?

Other anti-inflammatory complexes only usually include a few of these anti-inflammatory nutrients, leading the consumer to have to purchase multiple products.

We include 9 active ingredients that influence at least one of the body’s processes for causing inflammation, so by combining a large number of ingredients - each of which acts on a separate inflammatory pathway - we have created a product that targets inflammation efficiently and effectively.



BioSoothe’s potent ingredients are packaged in delayed-release capsules. This is so that the ingredients reach the gut where they are released and can be most effective.

For daily use

Directions for use

Take 2 capsules per day with food. BioSoothe can be taken at any time of day but we recommend taking it in the morning just before breakfast.
