Boosting our body’s immune system is often the best defense when it comes to protecting us from whatever the world throws our way.
Our exclusive Immunity Protocol is the exact go-to wellness strategy Dr. Cabral uses to enhance his own immunity, both seasonally or when traveling. This combination of vitamins provides the key nutrients required to protect and bolster our immune response to help keep us well and deter potential illness.
Alkalizing Vitamin C is Dr. Cabral's personal go-to powder for high dosage use. Each scoop contains approximately 2.5g and easily mixes with water or your favorite beverage and comes in a refreshing lemon flavor that adults and kids alike will love.
Vitamin C's role in immune enhancement has been strongly evidenced in supplementation research to increase natural killer cell activity, lymphocyte proliferation and immune balance. (1) Vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant, acting to neutralize free radical damage to cells, including DNA, lipids and proteins. As a free radical neutralizing agent, Vitamin C readily donates electrons to unstable molecules and breaks the chain of free radical damage to cells and tissues.(2)
Vitamin C supplementation has been studied for more than six decades for its role in supporting the body during immune challenges. It has been shown to stimulate both the production (3, 4) and function (5, 6) of white blood cells, especially neutrophils, lymphocytes and phagocytes.
Equilibrium Nutrition chose this specific form of Zinc for its wide range of physiological functions, including the support of the body’s immunity defense system and tissue development and repair. What makes it balanced is its very unique formulation that includes co-factors such as copper, which allow zinc to be used for long-term use without depleting its antagonist (copper).
Zinc plays an important role in supporting the body’s defense system, promoting healthy neutrophil, natural killer cell, and T-lymphocyte function.* Vitamin C and B6 are powerful antioxidants and act as synergistic partners with zinc in this formulation in order to enhance its absorption into the body where it needs it the most.
By using a smaller micro dose of these two cofactors Equilibrium Nutrition's Balanced Zinc is able to improve the overall benefits of an already powerful mineral.
While there are many factors which cause people to be deficient in Vitamin D, there is one thing that is certain -- when the body is low in Vitamin D it immediately lowers the immune system and therefore our defenses against bacteria, viruses and other diseases.
Vitamin D plays a major role in our human genome (DNA) and is responsible for over 500 processes in the body, including assisting with the absorption of other vitamins and minerals. In addition to protecting you from bacterial and viral invaders, low Vitamin D could leave you susceptible to autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, diabetes, cancer and more.
Our high-potency, single drop formula has been proven to be the most efficient by enhancing absorption and utilization by the body.
Alkalizing Vitamin C
Take the above 3 products daily during anytime you feel you need to boost immunity. Great to use seasonally or anytime you will be traveling.
For best results, Dr. Cabral recommends taking this in addition to the Daily Foundational Protocol, Level 2 which includes all the basic building blocks your body needs for optimal function year round.

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the EquiLife line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled EquiLife to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At EquiLife we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
Since I know you’re going to absolutely love and see & feel the difference by using the Equi.Life supplement line I’ve formulated for my private practice, my family, and online community I'm happy to offer you my “Empty Bottle Guarantee!”
This means if you don’t see or feel the results you were looking for, or just don’t believe this was the absolute best product in its class that you’ve ever used, simply ship back the empty bottles, within 60 days of your purchase, for 100% of your product purchase price (not including S&H).
My team and I firmly believe in putting our clients and customers first, and we only want the best for you in your wellness, weight loss & anti-aging goals!
Love the protocol so far can feel a difference in energy!
I wish this pkg came with Vit C in pill form as an option instead. Powder formula tastesike alkaseltzer. Have to chug it to get it down. Also, pills are more convenient, so i might buy them separately next time to get the pill Vit. C
Working like a charm, so happy to have found this!
I bought this to arm myself whilst I was visiting my dad in aged care, not wanting to catch even a cold. I found myself surrounded by people with coughs and runny noses but I believe by taking this every day I was able to avoid any symptoms of cold/flu and thankfully no Covid
Increased energy and no illnesses as of yet.
