ABOUT JUVIA and our mission for gut health


JUVIA was created as a result of decades of world-leading studies and scientific research projects carried out by our founders - Professor John Hunter and Dr Rosemary Waring. While it’s been many years in the making, we believe the end result was worth every second.


It started with research

In 2016, Prof John Hunter’s work with Dr Rosemary Waring had resulted in a supplement that could be used to reduce digestive symptoms in racehorses. Prof. Hunter has had work published in The British Medical Journal, The American Journal of Gastroenterology, and more. Sarah, who works with Prof Hunter, decided she’d try it for herself, becoming the first person to take JUVIA.

“Within days I felt different. I couldn’t believe the difference, honestly.” Sarah explains. “I told Prof Hunter what I’d done and that's how the story of JUVIA began. It has changed my life and I would not be without it now. I feel fitter and less stressed as I don’t have to worry what I eat or where the nearest loo is.”

Born at The Royal Institution of Great Britain

The Royal Institution is home to numerous groundbreaking discoveries and has had an instrumental role in the advancement of science since its founding in 1799.

We're honoured to call this incredible building our birthplace and we're just as passionate about connecting people to science as the RI has been for the last 200 years.

Erme being poured onto a spoon


ERME is the key ingredient in JUVIA. It’s a completely unique and natural ingredient that is rich in vitamins and minerals and contains active enzymes that break down carbohydrates in your diet. 

Whether you have gut concerns or not, ERME is beneficial for everyone as it rebalances your gut, promotes good bacteria and reduces toxins.

Research on ERME’s efficacy regarding various gut health conditions can be found in a range of medical journals, such as this pilot study in The British Medical Journal.

A bright, healthy, future

We’ll never rest in our mission to understand the gut microbiome. We’re consistently pursuing new studies and research and are grateful for all those within the scientific community helping us on our journey.

Right now, we’re working on something really exciting that will make JUVIA even tastier and easier to take, but it’s a secret for now so stay tuned! For us, JUVIA is a natural part of our daily health routine and we’re dedicated to making it easy for you to include in yours too.
