What You Should Know
Nature’s Balance manufactures and distributes vitamins and supplements. Nature’s Balance was formed in 1992 and the only other information we could discern was that they are located in North Carolina.
There are many different supplements in the Nature’s Balance line of products. We will only be reviewing one of them. There are many choices for immune support, allergy relief, topical pain relief, detoxification, and general system support. For purposes of this article we will profile a flagship product of the company; Chlorella. Chlorella is a protein. It is a green single-cell freshwater algae. Chlorella is also a source of essential fatty acids that are required for many biochemical functions, including hormone balance.Chlorella has been the focus of research projects since the 1960s, many of which have been about studying the ways in which it accelerates the body’s ability to detoxify heavy metal and chemical toxins. It’s also supposed to be very helpful to the immune system in general.
There wasn’t a full ingredient list, but the website did show the following ingredients to be included in their formula: high levels of chlorophyll, vitamin B12, beta-carotene and RNA/DNA. More than 20 vitamins and minerals are found in chlorella, including iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, pro-vitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, B2, B5, B6 and B12, biotin, inositol, folic acid, plus vitamins C, E and K.
There are so many different vitamin and supplement companies out there, how do you begin to choose? We like that there are different products to choose from to meet your needs, but it’s also frustrating that we cannot find a full list of ingredients. Sometimes a consumer will choose to go to another company just because the entire list of ingredients isn’t on the website. Also, being able to know who researches, develops, and formulates the products is important because we want to know that serious people are behind the claims to back up the science. It’s always prudent of the company to err on the side of too much information so that people can make an informed decision.
