Licorice Root Extract
Therapeutic use of licorice root goes way back to ancient Egypt, where it was made into a sweet healing drink for pharaohs.
Licorice Root has also been used in traditional Chinese, Greek and Middle eastern medicine to reduce inflammation, soothe an upset stomach as well as treat respiratory issues.
Today, many experts use licorice root to handle ailments like heartburn, and acid reflux.
A recent 2 year study discovered that licorice root was more effective at reducing heartburn symptoms in adults than commonly used antacids.
Quercetin heals the microbiome by sealing holes in the delicate gut lining and by increasing the expression of ‘tight junctions proteins’.
These proteins regulate our intestinal leakage by connecting membrane cells, thus only allowing the nutrients that we need in, and keeping everything else out.
Quercetin also stabilizes ‘MAST’ cells, reducing the release of histamines, reducing food allergies, damages to the gut lining, hives and other skin irritations.
In rats given DSS (a substance that causes colon damage), treatment with quercetin restores barrier integrity and partially heals colitis.
Rats given another substance to cause colitis and treated with Quercetin preserved normal fluid absorption (which is altered by colitis), counteracted Glutathione (our “master antioxidant”) depletion and colonic damage within 2 days.
Quercetin has many incredible effects on energy metabolism to suppress fat formation, boost fat burning and help speed weight loss. Quercetin switches off some genes needed for fat storage, and switches on other genes so that levels of SIRT1 protein which regulates cell metabolism and the rate at which fat is burned in the liver, in fat cells and in muscles.
Quercetin is also great at crushing cravings to support reaching your weight-related goals. Quercetin also unlocks the fat burning properties of our next ingredient, Resveratrol.
In 2016, a study in the European Journal of Nutrition discovered that when Quercetin and Resveratrol are taken together, the combined fat loss effect was far greater than taking them individually.
Resveratrol is one of the compounds responsible for the "French Paradox". At a time when dietary saturated fats were believed to contribute to heart disease, researchers were shocked to find that France, with its high intake of fatty foods, had less heart attack deaths than those in the US and the UK.
Using data from 17 different countries, it was discovered that consumption of red wine that provided a powerful “protective” benefit and anti-aging properties. Upon further research, scientists later realized that the polyphenol Resveratrol which provided the most protection.
You would need to drink 150 glasses of wine just to get the same benefits as taking one capsule of Emma.
Laboratory studies show that resveratrol can block the formation of new fat cells, reduce the accumulation of fat in white fat cells and enhance fat burning efficiency. Resveratrol activate genes which stimulate fat burning and increase metabolic heat – also known as thermogenesis, providing a powerful weight loss boost.
A study from 2018 found that Berberine improved the composition of the gut microbiome. More specifically, results showed that Berberine increased the abundance of the highly beneficial strain known as Akkermansia.
This wonderful strain has been connected to lower obesity, less inflammation, less cravings, lower risk of diabetes and better overall digestion health.
In fact, a 2020 study published in The Aging Cell Journal:
Berberine extended the lifespan of mice by a shocking
80% from 85.5 days to 154 days
In addition to improving fur density, extending healthy lifespan, and boosting overall rejuvenation.
And that’s not all, the same study showed a decrease in toxic metabolic byproducts and a lower incidence of cytokines and chemokines. These gut toxins have been linked to many inflammatory conditions.
Berberine also improves insulin sensitivity in muscle cells by 40%
Star Anise has been shown to possess powerful antibacterial properties and may be beneficial in protecting against these harmful strains of bacteria.
One clinical test tube study demonstrated that Star Anise blocked the growth of E. coli, a type of bacteria that causes many dangerous symptoms like severe stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting.
Another study published in the Journal of Medicinal and Food demonstrated that Star Anise exhibited antibacterial activities against a whopping 67 strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
It’s one of several ingredients in Emma designed to lower disease causing bacterial strains while boosting healthy bacteria strains at the same time.
Chicory Root Inulin
If you’re looking to ‘power wash’ your insides, and get your bowels moving again, you’ll be pleased to see Chicory Root Inulin on the label.
It will help keep your midsection lean and trim by reducing embarrassing bloating and constipation.
The Inulin in Chicory Root fiber is a powerful prebiotic, which means it feeds the good bacteria inside your gut.
Those good gut bacteria release molecules that help you better digest food as well as get things unstuck and speed up movement throughout your digestive tract.
The Inulin in Chicory Root has been shown to stimulate the growth of superhero gut strains called Bifidobacteria – which fights the growth of abnormal cells. Chicory Root can also suppress the growth of certain dangerous bacteria, such as Bacteroides, Prevotella and Clostridium Histolyticum.

"I struggled with constipation and uncomfortable bloating, and fatigue for 20 years. I went to every doctor in my city and tried everything, including laxatives, cleanses, and probiotics.
The cleanses and laxatives gave me relief temporarily... but over time I felt like needed them more and more. And probiotics made my bloating and gassiness even worse.
Emma has been a godsend. It's only been 2 weeks and I'm already pooping like I did as a teenager. Thanks to Emma, for giving me my life back. I can now eat what I want and I'm back in full control of my digestion!"
I love eating out with my friends in New York City, especially Asian and Italian foods. Since I turned 30s, I get stomach upset every time after a big meal, especially if we had pasta, pizza or ramen. It got to a point where I felt like I couldn’t enjoy eating out with friends anymore. Then I discovered Emma. Now I just take 2 capsules of Emma after I eat, and I never feel the painful bloating or indigestion anymore! It works like magic!
Working out and eating healthy is my passion. But I still get constipation once in a while. I eat a lot of veggies and healthy salads so that could be the problem... I tried Emma and all the symptoms went away, not to mention the incredible anti-aging combo of Quercetin and Resveratrol in this formula. Emma is keeping me young and free of digestive upsets. LOVE!!!
"Starting with my third pregnancy, I began gaining weight uncontrollably. My cravings for junk just skyrocketed out of control for what I thought was no reason. I tried exercising, but it's really hard when you're also struggling with fatigue and depression, and not wanting to leave the house or be seen in public.
I was really scared that I was losing my body permanently, and our romantic life was suffering because of it.
A friend I really trusted turned me onto Emma, and I haven't looked back since. First - the uncontrollable cravings are GONE. I have more energy and clarity. I'm more in control. I've lost 15 pounds already in just 2 months, I make better choices, I can think and no longer have these nasty 'gut bugs' making decisions for me. Thanks Emma!"
The days around my period is probably the worst days of digestion for me. No matter what I eat, I feel boated and get cramps in my lower stomach. It’s like carrying an extra 10-15 lbs down there. My energy is sluggish too and I don’t feel like myself. After trying Emma for a month, all of my tummy problems were gone and I barely notice the difference when I’m on my period and when I’m not. My energy level is also a lot higher and my mood is better. I feel like Emma does way more for my health than fixing my gut issues. I don’t think I’ll ever stop taking it. With Emma for life!
I've had digestive problems since I was a teenager. As I got older, these issues got a lot worse. Foods that used to cause a little bit of gas and bloating now become full blown run-to-the-bathroom emergencies.
All the doctors would tell me is just eat a really bland boring diet and you'll be ok. Well I think foods are one of the great pleasures of life, and eating a bland diet for months at a time is torture -- especially when it brings no real relief.
I found your website online and of course I was skeptical (having tried everything without results) but I was like what the heck, if this works even 10% as well as people say, it's worth a shot. I got my first bottle and it was like -- ok I think this is working. It was gradual at first. By the second week, I was having very little bloating, and no emergency trips to the bathroom. Five weeks later and I can eat anything I want, and feeling great. I feel like a dark cloud lifted, and I've just bought a six pack of Emma so I'll never be without it."
Why Emma is More Effective Than All Traditional Digestion Remedies
frequently asked questions
What makes Emma Superior to Probiotics?
Probiotics have exploded in popularity over the last decade. So why has our gut health continued to get worse over the same time period?
Probiotics, in theory are great. The beneficial effects of good bacteria are well established in the scientific literature.
However, there's an important piece of the puzzle nobody is talking about.
Too much bacteria in the small intestine can be just as bad -- or in many cases, much worse than not having enough bacteria. Bacterial overgrowth is actually one of the most common causes of heartburn, bloating, unexplained nausea, constipation and excess gas.
In fact, up to 60% of people who suffer from bloating, constipation and digestive upsets are actually found to have bacteria overgrowth in their small intestine.
Giving probiotics to someone with a sick gut microbiome is like trying to plant a garden on farm land that was previously used as a toxic waste dump.
That's why probiotics alone will never solve the problem. Adding more bacteria to a system that is already suffering from too much bacteria is a recipe for disaster. And if you've tried probiotics and they didn't work, I'm sure you can relate to this.
Emma works in a completely different way.
Instead of forcing more bacteria into an environment which may already have too much bacteria, Emma is designed to change the environment using gut microbiome modulators - that is, powerful plant-based molecules proven to increase healthy friendly flora and decrease pathogenic bad bacteria.
You're going to increase the health protecting friendly flora, start feeling more energy throughout the day, achieve full elimination in the bathroom every morning, curb those annoying cravings, get lean and trim and finally feeling good about yourself.
Trust me, if crops aren't growing because the soil is toxic, adding more 'seeds' isn't going to solve the problem. Instead, you have to change the environment, detoxify the soil, add minerals, nutrients and fertilizer, rotate the crops.
That's the only way you’re going to get things working the way they’re supposed to.
Can Emma be taken with probiotics?
Absolutely. In fact early research seems to indicate that Emma will make probiotics more effective than probiotics alone and a 2016 study showed that probiotics benefits were markedly enhanced by one of Emma's primary ingredients, berberine.
Think of it this way. Emma makes the gut environment more hospitable to friendly flora, and less hospitable to the bad guys.
And if your gut isn't doing so well, probiotics won't decide to settle and make it their home.
In fact, a 2017 study published Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology shows that probiotics were ineffective at preventing bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
In other words, if the gut environment is not friendly, there's no amount of probiotics that could fix the situation.
If the gut environment IS friendly, any amount of friendly flora, even just from the food you're eating, is enough. Most people don't realize but you get probiotics every day just from eating - just one apple has 100 million units of probiotics, you really get most of this stuff from food.
A good gut environment attracts health-boosting friendly flora, just like a sick gut environment will attract disease-causing pathogenic bacteria.
So you might say that taking probiotics shouldn't be taken without Emma, and if you've tried probiotics in the past without benefit, you might want to try Emma first to create an environment that the probiotics would actually thrive in.
Once your digestion is working well again, regularity and full emptying of the bowels, less heartburn, less annoying cravings - you can decide to try probiotics again and see if they help you.
Will Emma Help Me lose Weight?
The main function of Emma is to naturally bring balance to the gut environment, increasing beneficial friendly flora while suppressing dangerous pathogenic bacteria, and ultimately repair the delicate lining of the digestive tract.
That being said, there are two different factors to support weight loss. The fat burning effects can be mild to dramatic, depending on the degree of imbalance you might have in the first place.
The first weight loss factor is through the up-regulation or, you might say acceleration of the metabolism. As you probably already realize, weight gain is related to how well you digest and metabolize food.
After all, if you burn everything you eat as energy, there's nothing to really get stored as fat, right?
Emma enhances fat burning metabolism by stimulation of glycolysis, by preserving the function of mitochondria - the energy powerhouses of your cells.
The key to Emma's fat burning is it's ability to activate AMPK (Adenosine MonoPhosphateActivated Protein Kinase). AMPK is like a metabolic master switch inside the body and boosts fat burning by improving mitochondria (the energy centers of cells in the body).
Emma also aims to reduce fat storage by blocking the fat storage enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. It also boosts the efficiency of the hormones insulin, leptin and adiponectin, which all play a significant role in weight loss -- which will drop that number on the scale for good.
The second mechanism is our unique combination of Resveratrol and Quercetin cause weight loss by directly modulating the the gut microbiome, and activating powerful fat burning flora, and reducing the bad bacteria that lead to fat storage, weight gain, cravings and disease.
Now, resveratrol has been known as a powerful health-span extending compound for years, however what is really new, and really exciting, is that when it’s combined with Quercetin, it’s fat burning properties are activated in a big way.
What results can I reasonably expect from Emma?
You can expect to enjoy a bigger variety of foods you can eat without issues such as bloating, heartburn constipation.
You can expect less bloating, and gas once the pathogenic bacteria in the small intestine is cleared out.
You can expect a normalization of bathroom habits achieving full elimination and "complete release" of the colon, once the lining of the digestive tract is fully healed.
You can expect to reduce cravings, since a 2014 study at the Department of Psychology at Arizona state university discovered that many cravings for sugar and other junk food are caused by bad bacteria in the gut 'hi-jacking your brain'.
Customers have often reported other unexpected benefits as well such as skin problems clearing up, improved mood or energy, better hair growth, more restorative sleep as your friendly flora perform up literally hundreds of chemical processes within the body.
Really there can be many benefits, it's impossible to predict what happens once you have the right.
The best way to know what it does is to give a try, find out how well it works for you. You're going to love how it calms down irritation, reduces bloating, reduces cravings and honestly you're going to love how it makes you poop.

Are there any side effects? is it safe to take long term?
All of the ingredients in Emma are generally recognized as safe. It's free from any dangerous drugs, there's no stimulants, there's no weird cleansing or laxatives, nothing that is going to cause dependence or addiction.
Above and beyond that, the three primary ingredients berberine, resveratrol and quercetin have all been shown to extend lifespan in clinical animal studies.
The unique combination of ingredients is designed to converge on AMPK regulation on mitochondrial oxidative stress - a primary cause of aging.
This supports the future possibility that Emma has use even as an anti-aging supplement through antioxidation and AMPK cellular kinase activation, although that hasn't really been our focus since Emma is so good at helping women with their digestion, reducing bloating, full elimination and saying goodbye to cravings for good.
And that's really the mission - to bring awareness to this, its a silent epidemic affecting millions of women - and for once say its ok to talk about these things.
Will Emma help with bloating and constipation?
Emma was specifically formulated for a woman's bloating and constipation. Emma does this using ingredients shown to improve your gut bacteria profile.
Science has shown us that bloating and constipation primarily comes from too much dangerous methane-producing bacteria in the gut -- Specifically in the small intestine, which should be relatively clean and bacteria-free.
You see, the microbiome is an incredibly complex balance of many different of varieties of bacteria. And these bacteria perform all kinds of functions in the body.
There's bacteria to tell us when to feel hungry, there's other bacteria to tell us when to feel full. There's friendly flora that manufacture vitamins, and others that train your immune system. There's some that clean up damaged DNA and damaged cells - yow know, important stuff!
Some boost your energy, yet others make you feel relaxed. There's some that perform healing functions in the body, some break down and eliminate toxins, some regulate your mood and make you feel good and so forth. You know 80% of your serotonin the feel-good hormone comes from your gut just as an example of how important this is.
So back to constipation - here's where this connects. One of the functions of our good bacteria is to produce mucus in the digestive tract.
Remember, constipation is caused by not enough mucus production, things being too dry and stuck, not properly lubricated. Emma has two powerful ingredients that increase mucus production relieving constipation, for that clean full elimination -- that perfect poop.
It's literally the lubrication your digestive tract needs to make everything work down there.
Will Emma help with diarrhea?
Emma is wonderful for diarrhea.
A lot of people think diarrhea and constipation are totally opposite conditions, but in fact they are two sides of the same coin really, they stem from bad bacteria causing inflammation and irritation. They are both a sign you have a gut environment that is not hospitable to the friendly flora who you need feel good and have proper digestion and full elimination.
The most common cause of diarrhea is unwanted bacterial or parasitic infections in the gut and colon, and the body trying to prematurely 'get rid' of the waste before it's fully processed and digested.
Emma's natural ingredients fight the harmful bacteria that causes diarrhea, soothing and calming, reducing gas and boating. Calming and soothing your gut so you can say goodbye to uncomfortable irritation and inflammation.
In fact, we have had many customers who have had alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea throughout the month, and Emma was the only thing that ever worked for them.
Remember, this is a uniquely female challenge - our hormones fluctuate throughout the month, and digestion can be severely affected by these fluctuations.
That's why Emma is the first formula designed to bring the gut environment back into balance, formulated women first.
How fast will i see results?
This is a very individualized question, and it will have a very individual answer.
Many women start to see certain immediate results like fewer food sensitivities, less cravings, better elimination and a lift in your mood within the first 2-3 days.
Other changes like weight loss for example, happens mostly as a byproduct of improving your metabolism.
Remember almost all of the ingredients in Emma are there to get your digestion and energy metabolism working again, and everything is connected.
You're improving digestion which is so many things - its starts in your brain with what foods you crave, it determines how much of what you eat gets turned into energy, or stored as fat, and then even burning stored body fat - it's all regulated, it all falls under 'digestion and energy metabolism'.
Other benefits like long term correction of dysbiosis, improving your gut flora and microbiome profile is going to keep improving - and improving over the next 12-16 weeks.
The best part is, as you improve your gut microbiome, there's so many cascading effects, and you'll continue to see metabolic improvements as your body begins to absorb more nutrients, increase your cellular energy and improve waste elimination.
So really the answer to question depends on how long the problem has been going on, what needs to be fixed and how regular you're using Emma.
The best way is to give it a shot. You've always got our industry leading 60 days 100% satisfaction guarantee. You've got nothing to lose, and it's much better to find out now that Emma is really the true solution to finally handle your digestive challenges for good, than to suffer with bloating, constipation, cramping, low energy and affected moods, wondering 'what if Emma works?' for the rest of your life.
What about cleanses? Is it really true that most people have 20 pounds of undigested waste stuck in their colon?
You can't believe everything you read online!
That's why we show all 19 studies referenced throughout this page down below. We walk the walk and we back it up. You won't find a single scientific study about anyone having "20 pounds of undigested waste in their intestines.
While some folks in the past used to believe these things, new science has shown that what's actually in our large intestine is our gut microbiome. And our metabolism, as well as many other processes in the body are actually controlled by the makeup of these flora.
Aggressive cleanses are dangerous, leaving a person dehydrated, and sometimes, just like antibiotics, they flush out ALL bacteria - good or bad.
There's no magic cleanse that's going to release all of this waste without flushing out the majority of your friendly flora as well.
If you ever hope for great gut health, and normal bathroom habits, you need to avoid dangerous cleanses like the plague. They are based on old science from a time period before we really understood how the gut really works.
The reason why Emma is such a big breakthrough is it's laser-targeted selectivity. It's the first formula designed to both support the friendly flora and suppress the harmful bacteria at the very same time.
If you've tried everything, and nothing has worked, you need to try Emma. What makes Emma different is that's made for women and it's going to bring things back into balance for you.
You really have nothing to lose, and there's always our industry leading 90 day money back guarantee, and we've done it this way so that anyone can give it a try, see how it makes you feel, less bloating and constipation, more normal bathroom habits, see how your energy, your mood changes, with less heartburn and food sensitivities.
You're going to love it, we guarantee it. If not just let us know, we're taking all the risk so that you can try Emma risk free, experience the relief, then decide you want to keep it.
My son, husband, or dad has digestive issues and nothing has worked for him, should he try Emma?
So as we've talked about, women have more digestive challenges due to the increased length and complexity of the digestion tract, fluctuations of hormones like estrogen and progesterone throughout the month, right? We have it worse ladies, it is what it is.
But also lets you know that Emma is more than powerful enough to fix a man's issues too.
Remember, men are just as susceptible to the gut destroying effects of antibiotics and illness, which can cause bloating, diarrhea and less commonly for men, constipation.
But what really matters is the relative health of person's friendly flora, compared to how much bad bacteria and potentially parasites have made its home in his intestines.
Speaking of parasites, they are incredibly common after traveling to places that don't have a great water supply.
Traveler's diarrhea is what most people call it, most people go to their doctor, get antibiotics that just wipe everything out. But it wipes out the good guys too and I guarantee it will be years before you feel normal again.
Emma has three amazing compounds that fight parasites, gently and safely without dangerous drugs or antibiotics.
And if Emma is powerful enough for a woman's increased challenges, handling whatever imbalance comes our way, that means that yes, it's strong enough to handle a man's challenges too.
If a man in your life has struggled with digestive problems, there is nothing stopping him from trying Emma to get the relief he's looking for. Just give it a try, you might become a hero to him.
