What You Should Know
Natural Balance formulates, sells and outsources sales for more than sixty natural supplements. The long list of products could make it hard for a consumer to find the right weight loss product. Some dieters may also question the long list of diet aids. If one product worked to increase weight loss, why would there be a need to create and sell so many others – aside from money?

The products listed, as part of the Natural Balance supplement line is not all-inclusive. There are 13 products listed on the Natural Balance website under the diet category. Many of the supplements are stimulants laced with ineffective ingredients. Stimulation is a vital part of weight loss supplement formulation, but without the ingredients to support stimulants like caffeine and Guarana, the supplement may cause weight gain not weight loss.
Research has proven that weight loss supplement with high levels of caffeine and other stimulants can increase hunger. This is why many weight loss products with stimulants will also include an appetite suppressant. Looking at the Natural Balance ingredient lists, it seems the company is focused on Chromium as their main appetite suppressant. Chromium is supposed to control appetite by regulating blood glucose levels. The effect is not proven and will not combat severe hunger that may be associated with stimulant intake.
One Natural Balance supplement does contain Hoodia as an appetite suppressant. This formula, Zappetite, also includes green tea, which is a positive. Hoodia, however, has been clinically proven to have no effect on hunger. Prices for Natural Balance supplements range from $10 to $36.
- Ingredients for Natural Balance supplements are listed online.
- Some supplements contain green tea.
- Stimulant supplements without an appetite suppressant can increase hunger.
- Chromium is not an effective appetite suppressant.
- Hoodia does not decrease appetite.
- Natural Balance produces more energy supplements than weight loss products.
None of the Natural Balance weight loss products will significantly increase weight loss. In fact, some of the more stimulating formulas could leave the dieter with strong hunger pangs and weight gain. Choosing a fat burner is a careful balance between increasing metabolism and fighting off hunger with ingredients clinically proven to work for the dieter.
