Why is JUVIA so unique?


  • ERME, our natural ingredient, derived from barley
  • Preservative (potassium sorbate)

Our unique natural plant-based ingredient ERME™ is derived from barley and contains active digestive enzymes that break down carbohydrates before they can cause any problems in your gut. 

It's backed by 14 studies conducted over 10 years with consistent results and was founded by Professor John Hunter, a leading gastroenterologist and author of ‘Irritable Bowel Solutions’. Now let’s take a closer look at what makes this supplement so effective...  

JUVIA is made up of barley malt extract and preservative (potassium sorbate) and is specially prepared at carefully controlled temperatures to preserve the activity of the 15+ enzymes that germinating barley contains. In regular malted barley the enzymes are destroyed during the malting process. These enzymes are what make the magic work in your gut!

Barley malt is known to contain a cocktail of naturally-occuring vitamins and minerals, such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc and Copper. These vitamins and minerals contribute to normal functioning of the nervous system, metabolism, immune system, psychological and muscle function and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue. They also contribute to the maintenance of normal teeth and bones, blood pressure as well as hair and skin pigmentation.

JUVIA is derived from barley grain which contains gluten. For people with gluten sensitivity, JUVIA should be fine to take and can even help so you'll be able to eat gluten again, but each person is different so please stay in tune with your body's needs. 


JUVIA is not suitable for people with coeliac disease or a gluten allergy (please note that gluten intolerance is NOT an allergy).


Yes JUVIA does have active ingredients – the enzymes it contains which are produced as barley germinates to allow the growing plant to access the nutrients contained in the grain.
