Friends for over a decade, Alice Mackintosh (an expert nutritional therapist) and Rosie Speight (city professional) have journeyed through university years into a hectic London lifestyle together.
During a particularly grueling year in her demanding job in The City of London, Rosie suffered a bout of troublesome acne after coming off the contraceptive pill ahead of starting a family. Without a suitable offering in health food shops and not wanting to turn to conventional medicine to clear it up, she consulted Alice. Rosie ate well, kept fit and did her best to look after herself.
Alice put together a supplement regime of 8 different products, only available through a specialist practitioner. Within weeks, not only was Rosie’s acne clearing up and her scars healing, her energy and concentration levels were drastically improved, as was her digestion and sleep – she felt the best she had in years. It was only then that she really realised how sub-par she’d been feeling on a day-to-day basis, something that so many of us put with given our busy lives.
Following this experience, it became clear that there was a distinct lack of high quality, effective supplements that made a difference readily available on the market.
With Alice’s expertise in the science of supplements coupled with Rosie’s direct experience of what busy people really want and need, Equi London was born.
A new approach to supplementation, bridging the gap of accessible and reliable information whilst cutting through the misleading and judgmental conversation.
They decided to create two super powder products ‘Fundamental‘ and ‘Beautiful‘ aimed at boosting the health and skincare needs of busy urban professionals, who, just like them, work hard and play hard, but are also health-conscious.
In a perfect world, we’d get everything from our diet, but busy modern life makes that near impossible – for so many reasons, from over farmed and nutrient depleted soils, to grabbing lunch on-the-go and enjoying some of the finer things in life! Equi is designed to fill in the gaps on the days your diet isn’t perfect, so that you don’t have to settle for feeling sub-par.
Equi nutritional supplements are based around the ‘Equi Eight’ philosophy which divides the body into systems, all of which contribute equally to keeping us strong and healthy. By nourishing and realigning each system, our vitamin supplements balance the body, promote optimal function and restore total harmony.
Using this approach they have created supplements that perform like no other, working uniquely with each person to target their specific needs and underlying requirements.

*Nutrient Reference Value
Formulated by Alice Mackintosh
Free from: Ingredients are free of gluten (product made in a facility that may handle gluten), artificial colours, artificial flavouring, preservatives and artificial sweeteners. No added sugars.
Mix a scoop of powder with water, juice or add to a smoothie and take with breakfast or lunch. Though the powders can be taken first thing, we recommend starting off having with food.
Ideally aim to avoid hot drinks for 10 minutes before and after to preserve the natural goodness, active enzymes and probiotics.
I use supplements daily to help support my body. I particularly like powder supplements as they are easily absorbed by the body and jam packed with nutrients. Each scoop contains the same as about 15 to 20 capsules would. They are also very versatile.. you can mix with water, juice or add to a smoothie.
When I test out supplements I like to use them exclusively so I can give an accurate testimonial. I normally take a separate probiotic, supergreens, fish oil and vitamin supplements so it was great having to take just one product.
I took 1 scoop of ‘Beautiful’ daily mixed with water. It is easy to mix and I really enjoy the taste which is pomegranate flavour. I have tried it mixed with juice and a smoothie, but I actually prefer it in plain water.
Now onto my results….
I noticed a massive difference in my skin. I normally suffer from breakouts before and during my periods but I have to say I didn’t while using this. My skin is calmer, more balanced and radiant. I totally skipped using foundation on my days out which is great!
My hair looks and feels healthy, my digestion is great and I’m sleeping better.
Overall I feel less stressed and have lots more energy which is much needed trying to juggle everything with my 2 little munchkins.
I hope you enjoyed the post.
