Nature’s Balance Review - Does This Supplement Line Work? Are lack of information and ingredients deal breakers?

Nature’s Balance Review

97% of dieters just want a product that works. Yeah, we’re having a little trouble figuring out the other 3% too. Since Nature’s Balance produces several formulas, we looked at a few different ones to learn more about their ingredients, side effects, clinical support and customer service quality. We took that information, condensed and refined to give you the bottom line.

EDITOR'S TIP:

What You Need to Know

First off, Nature’s Balance is a full line of what they call “professional grade health solutions.” Their products cover a wide range including detoxification, joint health and immune system support. We’ve chosen to focus on Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. It contains an assortment of vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, and B1, B2, B6, B12, chlorophyll and vitamins C, E, and K, along with potassium and magnesium. The supplement is easy to take since it’s a capsule.

Nature’s Balance was founded in 1992. The products use natural ingredients, which is a good sign since many synthetics may be harmful. The supplements are available from the company’s official website as well as other online retailers. We like the longevity and the high customer ratings, but read on…

No Full Ingredient Listing – “That’s a Problem?”

Our first concern with Nature’s Balance ingredients is that the company does not provide copies of the nutritional label for any of their supplements, so we don’t really know exactly is what is in the formulas. “It’s important to release a full list of ingredients to help customers address allergy concerns,” says our Research Editor.

According to the official website, “Discover just why we believe that chlorella is the single most-potent and important, natural antidote to the toxic world in which we live today, and why we recommend that this phenomenal life-sustaining and health building powerhouse should be the ‘foundation’ dietary supplement for every health-conscious individual on the planet,” this is fine and dandy, but what else is in the formula?

Confusing Doses – “Could Become Costly”

The official product website doesn’t mention how many capsules to take every day. Another online retailer that sells it suggests starting with 3 capsules a day and gradually adding an additional capsule until you reach the maximum dose of 9 pills. At the price of $32.95 a bottle, the minimum dose means the bottle would last two months, making it affordable. But, at the maximum dose, it would last only 20 days, meaning you’d have to purchase two bottles to make it through a month. Though it’s still moderately priced at that point, the formula is not clinically proven to boost weight-loss, so why give it the time of day?

Our research indicates that if any part of a weight-loss program is hard, like needing to take 9 capsules a day to get the maximum benefit, your chances of long-term success are minimal, at best.

The Science – “Effective?”

Nature’s Balance references multiple clinical studies on chlorella, but they are from the ‘50s, 60s, and the ‘70s. These mention nothing about how chlorella helps with weight-loss. Though Nature’s Balance has been in business for more than two decades, we were unable to find more than a P.O Box for the company based in North Carolina. While it’s good to know we can contact them online, by phone, and by mail, it would be good to know exactly where their manufacturing facility and corporate offices are located.

The Bottom Line – Does Nature’s Balance Work?

So ladies and gentlemen, what do we have to say on this one? We like Nature’s Balance’s longevity as a company and the positive comments we saw about it online, but we are skeptical about it because we cannot be completely sure of the ingredients in the formula. Plus, while chlorella natural, it is more of a chelator which removes heavy metals from the body than a weight-loss supplement.

If you’d like to shed a few pounds, we recommend choosing a supplement that does more than detoxify the body, with ingredients that have been proven to help with weight-loss, energy, and metabolism.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This formula is a blend of four ingredients supported by clinical research. The supplement is known to help burn fat and speed the metabolism. As we searched the internet, we were not able to find negative comments or any discussion about side effects and, based on reports, people are experiencing solid results.

The makers of Leptigen are so confident their product can help, they are giving a Special Trial Offer, which we like to see.

Product Features

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.

Ingredients

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.

Advantages

  • You can order the product online.
  • There are an array of products available to suit your personal needs.
  • It’s middle of the line in expense. It’s not completely cheap, but it’s also not going to break the bank.

Disadvantages

  • There isn’t a lot of information on the company itself.
  • You cannot read a full list of ingredients. This is important for people with allergy sensitivities.
  • We don’t know who researches or develops these products. It’s a tough market out there already and it’s frustrating when you cannot get all the information you feel you might need to make an informed decision.
  • Conclusion

    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.

      I do think that ACTS AS A DETOX should be included on the bottle label. Some people cannot do a detox because of medical reasons.

      This product did not work at all. I wanted to return an unopened box, but I was told that I could not. I spoke with a very rude representative who refused to let me speak with a supervisor. B E W A R E!!

      Odd. We have four customers on file with the last name ‘Myers’. Not one of them with the first name ‘Mark’. We have always had a sixty-day return policy on unopened bottles (not boxes). Call me at 1-800-858-5198 and let me have the lot number on the bottom of the bottles along with the approximate date of purchase. If you have an ‘unopened box’, how can you state that the product did not work? Finally, chlorella is NOT considered to be a weight loss product, nor do we, or have we ever promoted it as such

      Question: By taking this – would it help walking without using the cane , or walker?? Do have a vascular problem, also, being 85 – would be questionable “to TAKE or NOT to take”
      Appreciate for a prompt reply and your consideration into this matter
      God Bless!
