What is Healios®?

Healios® is a dietary supplement that promotes and maintains the health of epithelial cells and mucosal tissues lining the digestive tract, particularly in patients experiencing mouth sores or difficulty swallowing due to chemotherapy or radiation. It comes packaged as a flavored powder that, when mixed with water, creates a liquid nutrient suspension. Healios is an easy-to-use swish and swallow solution that can be part of a supportive care program designed by a healthcare professional.

Created by an Oncologist

Healios® was specially formulated by hematologist-oncologist Dr. Peter Anderson, MD, Ph.D. to help support normal cell repair along the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of patients suffering from cancer treatment side effects, particularly those caused by chemotherapy and radiation.

Made to Help Where You Need It Most

Healios® contains glutamine, a naturally occurring amino acid that helps damaged cells heal. Unlike ordinary glutamine powders, Healios’ special formulation increases glutamine absorption directly at the mucosal lining that protects your mouth, throat, and esophagus.

Supporting You During Cancer Treatment

Healios® can help you manage mouth discomfort and difficulty swallowing throughout your chemotherapy or radiation treatment. A healthcare professional can assess your needs and help design a supplementation program that is right for you.

Success Stories

The benefits of supplementing with nutrients found in Healios® have been clinically demonstrated. Healios has helped patients, including children, who have experienced difficulty swallowing due to chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

During my orientation meeting with my radiation oncologist, it was recommended that I speak with another patient who was undergoing the same type of treatment that I was to undergo. I then learned that part of his routine included the daily use of the product HEALIOS. Our oncologist was pleased with the reduction of sores in his mouth…. Read More

Last year when I first began chemotherapy treatment for Stage IV non-small-cell squamous lung cancer, the day after my second treatment, my mouth and throat began to burn like fire whenever ate anything. This started as soon as I put food in my mouth and intensified as I tried to chew and swallow…… Read More

Sincerely, David W.

I was facing 7 weeks of radiation that would target my left lung. Unfortunately, the radiation was going to be aimed close to my esophagus and cause some burning. My doctor recommended I try HEALIOS to minimize the soreness and pain of swallowing. I mixed HEALIOS every morning and carried it to radiation……. Read More

My name is Frank, I am a 72 year old patient. In September 2013 after surgery on my tongue to remove cancer I received thirty treatments of radiation to both sides of my tongue.

Healios for mouth sores from cancer

New call-to-action


Take twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. For best results, take after a meal.

Mix Healios® with water in the enclosed bottle.

  • Add one scoop (~11g) with 50-100ml of water
  • Swirl and swish in mouth for 10 seconds, then swallow
  • Be sure to drink slowly

Studies have shown that a slow ‘swallow’ is more beneficial than gulping. Healios developers found that swishing for 10 seconds in the mouth before swallowing led to optimal absorption and effect within 10 seconds because of the rapid delivery system.


Start using Healios® at the initiation of any period of increased stress to the digestive system. Continue using throughout the stress period, plus at least two additional weeks afterward. Your healthcare professional can help you assess your nutritional needs, and help to design a supplementation program that is right for you.


Uniquely formulated combining the amino acid glutamine with a blend of synergistic ingredients, resulting in an increased glutamine absorption by a factor of over 100 times – at the intended site of the mucosal lining, so healthy tissue can grow.

  • The glutamine in Healios® is a naturally occurring amino acid found in animal and plant protein
  • Contains two types of disaccharides in a precise combination to increase the uptake of glutamine as it comes in contact with mucosal tissue

This unique formulation‡ makes Healios more effective, and gives it a sweet taste.
