The primary ingredient is oxymatrine, an immunomodulator which is found within the shrubby sophora (Sophora flavescens) root extract constituent of Equilibrant. Equilibrant also contains the immunomodulatory herbs astragalus, olive leaf, shiitake mushrooms and licorice, as well as Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Calcium and Selenium.
Dr Chia finds that the overall response rate of ME/CFS patients to oxymatrine is 52%, and the response rate for Equilibrant is a few percent higher at 56%.
