WHAT IS BALANCE?
BALANCE is a dietary supplement, in capsule form. It's formulated with ingredients that are proven to support your body’s ability to balance hormones, particularly estrogen, improving hormonal acne and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
HOW DOES BALANCE WORK?
High estrogen levels are a common cause of hormonal acne. BALANCE is formulated with three powerful ingredients that are scientifically-proven to help rid your body of excess estrogen, bringing your hormones back into balance and improving symptoms like acne.
DIM works to ensure estrogen converts into a form that’s easily recycled or eliminated, while Glutathione and Calcium D-Glucarate help to support your liver and gut in removing excess estrogens and other toxins from the body. With estrogen levels in balance, your hormones can finally find harmony and stop wreaking havoc on your skin.
HOW IS BALANCE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SUPPLEMENTS?
By supporting healthy estrogen balance, BALANCE helps target a common root cause of hormonal acne, estrogen dominance. BALANCE is the only supplement that contains DIM, Glutathione, and Calcium D-Glucarate, three of the most powerful compounds in supporting healthy estrogen levels, helping you achieve healthy hormonal balance and acne-free skin.
While most supplements are formulated with a long list of ingredients to maximize claims, our ingredient list is intentionally minimal. By formulating with only three ingredients, we can ensure BALANCE offers therapeutic dosing, meaning each capsule contains enough of each ingredient to actually have an effect on the body.
WHO SHOULD TAKE BALANCE?
BALANCE is for women and men, over the age of 18, who are experiencing hormonal acne or other symptoms related to high estrogen levels. For women, other symptoms can include mood swings, weight gain, and painful, heavy or irregular periods. For men, other symptoms can include erectile dysfunction, low libido, belly fat, fatigue, and water retention.
WHO SHOULDN'T TAKE BALANCE?
You should not take BALANCE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We also don’t recommend taking BALANCE if you are under the age of 18. Always consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding any new supplement to your daily regimen.
HOW DO YOU TAKE BALANCE?
Take 1 capsule daily, or as recommended by a healthcare professional. It’s best to take it at the same time each day. BALANCE can be taken with or without food, however, taking it with food can help improve absorption and lessen your chance of experiencing nausea or indigestion.
We recommended taking BALANCE for a minimum of 3 months to allow your body to adjust and to ensure the ingredients are given enough time to flush out excess estrogens and begin rebalancing your hormones. That said, you may need to take BALANCE for up to 6 months, or more, to achieve optimum hormonal balance and peak skin results.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR BALANCE TO WORK?
Everyone has different genetics and lifestyles, so it can take anywhere from 1 week to 3 months to start noticing benefits and 3 to 6 months to achieve optimum hormonal balance and peak skin result. We recommend committing to a minimum of 3 months to allow your body to adjust and the ingredients enough time to flush out excess estrogens and begin rebalancing your hormones.
IS IT SAFE TO CONTINUE TAKING BALANCE LONG-TERM?
Once your acne and/or other symptoms have subsided, it is safe and beneficial to continue taking a maintenance dose of BALANCE long-term. Maintenance dosing can range depending on your genetic makeup and lifestyle. 1 capsule every other day is generally sufficient to help maintain healthy estrogen levels, but if symptoms reoccur, it is safe to continue taking the recommended dose of 1 capsule per day.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS THAT COME WITH TAKING BALANCE?
The ingredients in BALANCE are helping your body flush out excess estrogens, which may cause minor, short-lived detox symptoms. While these symptoms are rare, they can include darkened urine, gas, headaches, brain fog, or fatigue, as well as feeling achy or irritable, or experiencing changes in stool.
To avoid side effects, we recommend drinking plenty of water and eating fibrous fruits and vegetables, which will help your body flush out excess estrogens and harmful toxins. If you experience any of these detox symptoms, try taking 1 capsule every 2 or 3 days and see how you feel. If a lower dose is tolerable, continue for 2 weeks before proceeding with the recommended daily dose. If symptoms persist, it’s best to speak with your medical provider.
COULD MY ACNE GET WORSE BEFORE GETTING BETTER, WHEN STARTING TO TAKE BALANCE?
Your body will likely go through a detox period when you first start taking BALANCE. This is because the ingredients in BALANCE are working to flush out excess estrogens. That said, it is possible for acne and other symptoms to worsen within the first few days to first few weeks of taking BALANCE.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU MISS A DOSE?
Not to worry! Simply resume taking the recommended daily dose. There is no need to compensate by taking more capsules than recommended. Keep in mind, for best results, it is recommended to take BALANCE daily.
CAN MEN TAKE BALANCE?
Yes, both men and women can benefit from BALANCE. Men are equally vulnerable to the effects of estrogens found in our environment, as well as genetic variations in how the body processes hormones, which contribute to hormonal imbalances such as estrogen dominance. Acne is a symptom of high estrogen among men, but other symptoms may differ from those experienced by women, and can include erectile dysfunction, low libido, belly fat, fatigue, and water retention.
CAN YOU TAKE BALANCE UNDER THE AGE OF 18?
We do not recommend taking BALANCE if you are under the age of 18. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding any new supplement to your daily regimen.
CAN YOU TAKE BALANCE WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
Do not use BALANCE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
DOES BALANCE HELP WITH POST-PILL ACNE?
Birth control pills tend to suppress rather than solve hormonal imbalances and symptoms like acne. So, in coming off the pill you may re-experience the symptoms that drove you to go on it, often in a more pronounced way. Alternatively, you may have developed a hormonal imbalance while on the pill and, in going off of it, are experiencing persistent hormonal breakouts for the first time.
BALANCE is formulated with targeted ingredients, like DIM, that are proven to balance estrogen levels, helping many women bring their hormones and skin back into balance after coming off the pill. While BALANCE may be a great option for you, it’s always best to consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding any new supplement to your daily regimen. For example, if you've gone off the pill and are no longer getting your period, it could be a sign of much deeper hormonal issues that should be further investigated by a healthcare professional.
CAN YOU TAKE BALANCE WITH OTHER SUPPLEMENTS OR MEDICATIONS?
While BALANCE is generally safe, we encourage you to consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding any new supplement to your daily regimen.
