Off to a Good Start at Metabolic Research Center

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

Amazing media pickup of our press release earlier this week!

Almost 100 media outlets reporting on my new role as Chief Science Officer at Metabolic Research Center and President at Metabolic Direct, including:

Boston Globe

I am very excited to be bringing together the 30-year heritage of Metabolic Research Centers (~100 physical bricks & mortar centers around the country), with the new Metabolic Direct division (independent Metabolism Coaches, now in pre-launch phase for national and international expansion), and our online direct-to-consumer platform (
Our new line of EQQIL products will be launching in January 2016 – and we have a stellar team of product, education, and marketing experts already hard at work to bring them to market.
EQQIL Tagline = Empowering Your Best You

The “problem” that we are solving is one of “stress-induced imbalance” – when we’re exposed to various stressors (psychological/emotional, dietary, environmental, physical, etc) our bodies/minds become biochemically imbalanced (cortisol, glucose, inflammation, oxidation, etc) – leading us to feel fatigued, depressed, unmotivated, gain weight, etc.
The “solution” to looking your best, feeling your best, and performing your best is to restore biochemical balance – that is what EQQIL will provide and become known for.

What we do – develop “anti-stress” products and programs that empower people to Look, Feel and Perform Their Best

How we do it – by reducing metabolic stress, balancing biochemistry, and restoring vigor naturally (with distribution via physical centers such as MRC, independent Metabolism Coaches, and self-directed online/direct-to-consumer programs)

Why we do it – so people can develop and achieve their Best Future Self (and share that with others)

I hope that you’ll stay tuned and follow our progress at this blog and the social media channels below.
