Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies Review
Are you looking for a new way to get your fruits and veggies conveniently? In this Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies review, we breakdown a product that seems to be getting a lot of attention, and not always in a good way. Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies is another health supplement on the market promising all of your daily nutrition in a simple, easy-to-take manner. Does Balance of Nature achieve this? Let’s take a closer look.
About Balance of Nature
Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies was created by Dr. Doug Howard in 1996, a chiropractor who created a new form of dehydration known as “flash drying”. This helps fruit and veggies keep 99% of their nutrients when broken down to powder form.
Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies come in a capsule form, and are designed to be taken in tandem with an already healthy diet. They exclaim that all you need to do is take 3 capsules of each a day to save you time from preparing meals with whole foods.
What makes this different from any other superfood or green drink supplement? The capsules? Let’s learn more about what exactly is in Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies.
Balance of Nature Ingredients
The following is a breakdown of the ingredients in each bottle of Fruits and Veggies.
Fruits: Apple, Aloe Vera, Blueberry, Cranberry, Cherry, Grape, Lemon, Grapefruit, Orange, Mango, Papaya, Raspberry, Pineapple, Tomato, and Strawberry.
Veggies: Cabbage, Broccoli, Carrot, Cayenne Pepper, Cauliflower, Celery Stock, Kale, Garlic, Shiitake Mushrooms, Onion, SoyBean, Wheat Grass, Spinach, Zucchini, and Yam.
I could go into great detail about the specific benefits of each fruit and veggie used in this product, but instead, I’m going to approach this a different way.
Sure, all of these fruits and veggies have added health benefits, but does Balance of Nature take true advantage of these superfoods?
The first thing I should point out is the fact that there is no information on the specific amounts of each ingredient used in this product. This is discouraging but not uncommon. I want to know how much of each fruit or veggie that I’m consuming, and so should you.
It’s extremely hard to get behind a product that hides their ingredients from the consumer, in ‘proprietary blends’. If your product works, then why not show people why it works? Which leads me into the next section.
Will Balance of Nature Work?
Each serving of Balance of Nature is six capsules in total daily; three veggies and three fruits. Capsules are not for everyone, so I can understand if you are hesitant to having to swallow six capsules a day. I have a tough time with two Advil sometimes.
Each serving is 2.4 grams, making the total 4.8 for all six capsules. With just that information, I can already tell you that this product isn’t all that potent. At just under 5 grams, you really are not getting a lot of nutrient-sense calories here. In fact, 4.8 grams is just slightly more than 1/3 of a tablespoon.
The fact of the matter is that all of the ingredient amounts are hidden within proprietary blends. This makes it impossible to know exactly how much of each ingredient you’re getting, and the fact that their website doesn’t explain much, shows me that this product isn’t going to improve your health the way you think it might.
Balance of Nature Taste
I personally have not taken this product, but because of the capsule form, I can’t imagine that it would taste too bad. I have read other reviews where people would break open the capsules and pour them over food.
According to most reviews the taste doesn’t seem to be the problem.
Fruits and Veggies Side Effects
As far as I can tell, there haven’t been too many complaints of side effects from this product. There is a lack of fiber in the capsules, but other than that, you shouldn’t experience any side effects from this supplement.
If you aren’t sure about a dietary supplement, please contact your primary physician before consuming.
Is Balance of Nature Worth It?
In each bottle of Fruits and Veggies you get 30 capsules. If you are taking 3 capsules of each everyday, then that will only last you 10 days. That’s not a tremendous value in my opinion, especially when compared to other superfood powder products.
You do have the option to sign up as a “preferred member” which costs $25 (one time payment) and includes a health coach, and 90 capsules of each for $69.
For $2.30 a day, this is an expensive alternative to eating whole fruits and veggies.
Let’s break this down….$2.33 a day for 4.8 grams of nutrition seems woefully overpriced. I’ve been taking Kylea’s Total Living Drink, which is 40 grams of nutrition for around $.60 more per serving!
Is Balance of Nature Fruits and Veggies worth your money? No, probably not.
Balance of Nature Customer Reviews
Unfortunately there are very few reviews for this product. I did manage to find a few on Amazon, and they all ranged from 1 to 5 stars. A few of them were happy with the product, but many expressed that it was a waste of money.
I also managed to find quite a few complaints on BBB, most of which were those trying to get money back for products they never ordered. Others had a really tough time cancelling subscriptions as well.
Balance of Nature Pros and Cons
Below I have my own list of pros and cons for you to reference before you go spending your hard earned money on a mediocre product.
- Taste is tolerable
- Includes ingredients that could improve health
- Questionable value
- Low potency
- No probiotics, antioxidants, or enzymes
- No ingredient amounts
- Many customer complaints
As you can see, Balance of Nature falls short on Fruits and Veggies. The serving sizes are small at 4.8 grams, which is barely enough nutrition for your pet. On top of that, taking six pills everyday isn’t something I would look forward to.
The ingredients in the blend are hidden within proprietary mixes, and gives us no indication of how much of each fruit or veggie we’re actually consuming.
If you are looking for a high quality green drink, and want your money going towards something worth it, then I would recommend Kylea’s Total Living Drink over Balance of Nature.
