Do you ever find yourself wandering the aisles of your health food store, looking at label after label and trying to figure out which foods and supplements are the highest quality and best value? We’ve been there too!
There are such wide variations in quality and price between products, that sometimes it feels like an impossible challenge. For example, did you know that the supplements in your local supermarket are often made using processes that damage active ingredients or fail to extract them properly?
That’s one reason why we decided to launch our own probiotic, under the brand name Balance One. Designed by Lisa Richards and a team of digestive experts, it contains 15 billion CFUs of probiotic bacteria and 12 strains chosen specifically for Candida overgrowth. It uses a patented delivery system that is 15 times more effective than regular probiotics at getting bacteria past stomach acid. You can find it here.
