What is Healios®?


Healios is a dietary supplement developed by Dr. Peter M. Anderson, MD, PhD to
help support normal cell repair in the tissues lining the mouth and the gastrointestinal tract, particularly of patients experiencing mouth sores or difficulty swallowing due to cancer treatment. Healios can be a part of a supplementation program designed by your healthcare provider.

A New Complementary Approach to Keeping the Tissues in Your Mouth Healthy During Cancer Treatment

  • Unlike other products, Healios directly targets the damaged cells that cause pain instead of the symptoms
  • Easy to use
  • Science-backed

Healios®, Free for Children

Our mission is to improve the oral and digestive health of patients going through cancer treatment. Through the generous support of our manufacturing partner, we are able to offer Healios free to patients under the age of 18 who are most likely to develop mouth sores.
