Q: Why do I need Body Balance's Foundational Health Program?
A: For over 25 years worldwide, universally every Medical Doctor, Osteopath, Chiropractor and Naturopathic Physician agree that we must do these seven basic things (BALANCE, CLEANSE, PURIFY, NOURISH, OXYGENATE, PROTECT, AND STRENGTHEN) to have optimum health.
We live in a world that has environmental problems, from the air we breath to the water we drink.

Combined with the stress of everyday life from society, family, career and financial challenges, our need for Foundational Health has never been greater.

Q: Is Body Balance safe with medications?
A: Body Balance is completely safe and effective. There is no contraindication with any medications. Body Balance may even help to offset some of the negative side effects of certain medications, including Chemotherapy and Radiation. If your health care professional tells you its okay to eat food while taking your medication, then you can take Body Balance.
Q: Is Body Balance safe for pregnant or lactating women?
A: Body Balance is 100% safe and effective for pregnant and lactating women. OB/Gynecologists recommend Body Balance as a prenatal vitamin and mineral supplement because it contains every vitamin, macro mineral, trace mineral, amino acid and enzyme known to man, in nature's perfect balance.
In addition to all the nutrients, Body Balance also helps the mothers' body to produce colostrum, the fluid that comes through the breast for the first 48-72 hours of nursing. The recommended dosage for pregnant women is 2-3 ounces per day as a prenatal vitamin. If you are taking another prenatal vitamin take 1-2 ounces per day
Q: Is Body Balance safe for children?
A: Yes, Body Balance is safe for children of all ages. The recommended dosage is 1 teaspoon for newborn to 30 pounds, 2 teaspoons for 31-60 pounds, 3 teaspoons for 61-90 pounds and 1 ounce per day over 90 pounds.
Q: Is Body Balance recommended for senior citizens?
A: As we get older, our ability to digest foods and assimilate nutrients lessens. For this reason we highly recommend Body Balance for senior citizens. Body Balance, being a liquid with a reduced surface tension (below 58 dynes), offers increased absorption (95-98 %) of all the vital nutrients at the cellular level, providing increased health benefits for all senior citizens.
Q: Is there anything in Body Balance or other Life Force product which could affect somebody with a wheat allergy?
A: Wheat allergies come in many degrees, from slight to overt. Wheat sensitivity originates with the ingestion of wheat and/or a number of other grains. These grains contain polypeptide complexes called gliadins which disrupt the intestinal mucosa. Overall, the syndrome is referred to as a gluten sensitivity, which includes wheat, rye, barley, oats and other grains. There are no gliadins in any of the Life Force products, hence, you should not expect any negative reactivity.
Q: Why don't you list the amounts of each vitamin and mineral on the bottle of Body Balance?
A: The FDA requires listing the amounts of synthetic nutrients (man made chemicals) on vitamin or mineral supplements only because man can control the amount of each chemical put into these types of products.
Body Balance, being a whole food product, does not contain any synthetic nutrients. Nature cares about balance not potency. The key to nature is its unique ability to always balance the ratio of vitamins to macro minerals, to trace minerals to amino acids to enzymes. Potency in nature will vary. This is why you never see the amount of nutrients listed on foods in the produce section of your grocery store. We know oranges contain Vitamin C.
If you pick 10 oranges off the same tree, they will all have a different amount of Vitamin C, but the ratio of nutrients one to another will be the same…in nature's perfect balance. That's the secret to Body Balance's effectiveness.
Q: How do you compare Body Balance to other so-called "colloidal mineral" products that I have heard about?
A: There is NO comparison. Body Balance is a complete Foundational Health Program, not just a mineral supplement. Colloidal mineral products that are in the market place today, come from humic shale deposits, making the nutrients in these products inorganic and the metals Aluminum, Zinc, Copper, etc. into a metallic form. Metallic metals are unsafe for human consumption.
The American Institute of Biosocial Research has conducted laboratory analyses on these clay-based liquid mineral products and they have been found to contain dangerous amounts of inorganic (metallic) aluminum. Products containing high doses of inorganic aluminum have been known to cause brain seizures with long-term use.
Q: Do I need to take any other multi-vitamin and mineral supplement?
A: No. The ingredients in Body Balance contains every vitamin, macro mineral, trace mineral, amino acid and enzyme known to man in nature's perfect balance. If you have health challenges, then you may require additional nutritional support, such as larger doses of Body Balance, and other the other complimentary Life Force products.
Multi vitamin and mineral pills that list the amount of each nutrient are all synthetic (man made chemicals) that do no more then offer false energy, upset the balance of your bodies' chemistry and contribute to long-term negative side effects, such as cardio-vascular disease and arthritis.
Q: Who produces Body Balance and is the facility approved by the Food and Drug Administration?
A: Life Force International, Inc., manufactures Body Balance, exclusively for all independent Life Force Members for retailing.
Q: Is Body Balance approved by the Food and Drug Administration?
A: The FDA does not approve any dietary supplements. They only approve drug products. The FDA has a list of guidelines and ingredients commonly referred to as the GRAS List (Generally Recognized as Safe). Ingredients on this list are considered to be pre-approved. All the ingredients in Body Balance are on this list or fall into their pre-approved guidelines.
Q: How much Body Balance should I take per day?
A: The recommended amount is 1 ounce 2 times a day for the first month then a maintenance dosage of 1 ounce per day under 150 pounds and 2 ounces per day over 150 pounds. If you have health challenges and require extra nutrients, you can take up to 1 ounce 4 times a day.
For maximum absorption it is best to hold 1 ounce of Body Balance in your mouth under your tongue for 30 seconds before swallowing. This allows the enzymes present in Body Balance to bond with the enzymes in your saliva allowing absorption to take place through the mucosa and entering the cells in 60 seconds or less.
Q: How much Body Balance is in each bottle?
A: Body Balance is sold in 32 fl. ounce bottles.
Q: Does Body Balance need to be refrigerated?
A: As Body Balance is not heat pasteurized it should be stored out of direct sunlight and away from temperatures above 110 degrees. Temperatures above 118 degrees start to destroy valuable enzymes. Once Body Balance has been opened it should be kept refrigerated.
Q: What is the shelf life of Body Balance?
A: Body Balance has a recommended shelf life of 1 year. We suggest consumption within 30-45 days after opening. Life Force International USA inventories retention samples from every batch of Body Balance produced for 5 years. We have run numerous tests on samples that are 2 years old; there was no leaching of nutrients and the microbiology tests came back negative.
