If you don’t absolutely love our stuff for whatever reason, we don’t request you deliver it to a PO box in the Gobi Desert by carrier pigeon.

Nor do we ask you to fill a cursed inkwell with orc’s blood and demon saliva and with it complete reams of return forms written in ancient Cyrillic script.

We just . . . wait for it . . . give you your money back. No returns. No forms. No nonsense. Holy moo cows.

That means you can say “yes” now and decide later. You really have nothing to lose.

Balance is a 100% natural gut health supplement that reduces intestinal inflammation, enhances digestion and nutrient absorption, and improves carbohydrate metabolism.

The “gut” is a lot more than just the stomach. It’s your entire digestive system, including your mouth and teeth, esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines.

You can think of the gut as a long assembly line, with each section performing a separate job, and because of its complexity, there are many ways for it to influence your health and well-being.

In fact, it’s not a stretch to say that the state of your gut will determine much of the quality of your life.

For instance, scientists have discovered that a healthy bacterial landscape in the gut (microbiome) is an important defense mechanism against obesity; many gastrointestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) and disease (IBD); mood disorder, brain dysfunction, stress, anxiety, depression, and even autism.

That’s why we created Balance.

The reason it’s so effective is simple:

Every ingredient is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research and is included at clinically effective levels.

So, if you want a healthy and functional gut that supports your mental and physical well-being and protects against disease and dysfunction . . . Balance is for you.

You won’t be disappointed.

In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Balance, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.

You really can’t lose, so order now, and try Balance risk-free and see if it’s for you.

Ingredients (3,429.2 mg per serving)

Berberine (1,500 mg per serving)

Berberine is a compound found in several plants, including a group of shrubs called Berberis.

It has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat various ailments, including diarrhea, cholera, and other digestive disorders, as well as feelings of fatigue and infirmity.

Research shows that supplementation with berberine . . .

  • Reduces intestinal inflammation, which eases discomfort and may enhance nutrient absorption [1]
  • Prevents infections and protect against medical conditions that cause diarrhea, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)[2][3][4]
  • Improves blood glucose control, which can enhance energy levels, appetite control, and cognition, as well as reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart attack[5][6][7]
  • May enhance the function of healthful gut bacteria[8][9]

The clinically effective dose of berberine is between 900 and 1,500 milligrams.

Berberine

Artichoke Leaf Extract (1,800 mg per serving)

Artichoke leaf extract is a substance derived from the ground-up leaves of the edible flower heads of the artichoke plant.

It contains molecules known as caffeoylquinic acid and cynaropicrin, and research shows the former is an effective antioxidant, and the latter increases bile acid secretion from liver cells and relaxes the small intestine.[10][11][12][13]

This is why studies show that supplementation with artichoke leaf extract aids in the digestion of fatty acids and can alleviate dysfunctional dyspepsia in the small intestine.[14]

Additionally, research shows that artichoke leaf extract can improve blood glucose control in people genetically predisposed to high blood glucose levels (people of Polynesian and Native American descent, for instance).[15][16][17]

The clinically effective dose of artichoke leaf extract is 1,800 milligrams.

Artichoke Leaf Extract

Bromelain (150 GDU per serving)

Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple that helps with the digestion of protein.[18]

By improving your body’s ability to digest protein, you can enhance the absorption of amino acids and reduce digestive distress and flatulence resulting from malabsorption.

The clinically effective dose of bromelain is unknown, but the standard protocol is approximately 50 GDU (Gelatin Digesting Unit, which is a measure of enzyme potency) per meal.

Balance contains 150 GDU of bromelain per serving, which is higher than the per-meal dose because we intend for people to take one serving of Balance per day spread evenly between at least three meals.

Bromelain

Pepsin (500,000 FCC per serving)

Pepsin is an enzyme found in the stomach that helps with the digestion of protein.[19]

By improving your body’s ability to digest protein, you can enhance the absorption of amino acids and reduce digestive distress and flatulence resulting from malabsorption.

The clinically effective dose of pepsin is unknown, but the standard protocol is approximately 150,000 FCC (Food Chemical Codex, which is a measure of enzyme potency) per meal.

Balance contains 500,000 FCC of pepsin per serving, which is higher than the per-meal dose because we intend for people to take one serving of Balance per day spread evenly between at least three meals.

Pepsin

Papain (100,000 PU per serving)

Papain is an enzyme found in papaya that also helps with the digestion of protein.[20]

By improving your body’s ability to digest protein, you can enhance the absorption of amino acids and reduce digestive distress and flatulence resulting from malabsorption.

The clinically effective dose of papain is unknown, but the standard protocol is approximately 30,000 PU (Papain Unit, which is a measure of enzyme potency) per meal.

Balance contains 100,000 PU of papain per serving, which is higher than the per-meal dose because we intend for people to take one serving of Balance per day spread evenly between at least three meals.

Papain

No Artificial Food Dyes or Other Chemical Junk

Studies show that artificial food dyes may cause negative effects in some people, including gastrointestinal toxicity and behavioral disorders.[21][22][23][24][25]

No Artificial Food Dyes or Other Chemical Junk

Okay, so we do dig on profits, but we also go in for happy customers, and free shipping works like gangbusters. So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live elsewhere, your order ships free when it’s over $199.

Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money. But! We're also hustling to improve our international logistics and will be passing our savings along to our international customers.

Also, if you don’t absolutely love our stuff for whatever reason, we don’t request you deliver it to a PO box in the Gobi Desert by carrier pigeon.

That means you can say “yes” now and decide later. You really have nothing to lose.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.

Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
