I’m afraid not.
It’s more like the Imbalance of Unnatural bullsh#t.
Really, what in the h#ll is “natural” about swallowing capsules filled with pulverized and dried out plant material?
I’ve written about what a rip-off Balance of Nature is before, but I just have to call out these snake oil again.
If you haven’t seen the commercials for “Balance of Nature,” they have people claiming that taking these little miracle capsules, filled with this magical fruit and veggie powder, has cured any number of ailments.
They claim taking these magical capsules has turned their lives around.
They claim taking these magical capsules has brought them back from the brink of virtual life-ending incapacity.
“I could barely walk anymore, but now thanks to Balance of Nature I’m running marathons again!”
Hmmm…, let’s take a closer look.
“Balance of Nature” suggests we take just of their 3 fruit capsules and 3 veggie capsules per day.
If you take a look at the size of these capsules, this is like the equivalent of eating 3 strawberries and maybe 1 small carrot a day!
And this is their miraculous cure all?!
That’s all it takes to turn an unhealthy life around?
That’s the fountain of youth for older customers who thought their lives were over?
They claim to “pack 10 servings of fruits and vegetables into 6 tiny capsules.”
Can we use a little common sense here?
Just a little?
I don’t care how much you dry out and smash and grind up something…, it is still going to take up the same basic amount of space. It’s just basic science.
These people want us to believe they have their own “Honey, I shrunk the fruits and veggies” process.
Well, they don’t.
Can we all agree on that?
I hope you’re nodding your head up and down.
Now we can proceed.
So, when we look at their bottle of fruits capsules and their bottle of veggies capsules, it’s like the equivalent of buying a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli.
And for the equivalent of a couple bananas, a couple of apples, and a head of broccoli, you get to spend $89.95…, plus tax! That comes to about 50 cents per capsule.
That’s for a “thirty day supply.”
But, hey, shipping is free!
They say, “This is how nature intended” us to get our fruits and veggies!”
What kind of plant grows those “natural” plastic capsules that they fill with their “natural” fruit and veggie powder?
Do you realize how many real fruits and real vegetables you could buy for $90?
On the flip side, taking these capsules certainly won’t hurt. And if you typically don’t eat ANY fruits or vegetables, taking these capsules is better than nothing…, but not by much. They certainly are not going to change your life or significantly improve your health.
People would be much better off investing in a bottle of good daily multi-vitamins, a bag of apples and a bag of carrots, at a fraction of what these miracle capsules cost.
So, the next time you see one of these commercials, and watch some person praising “Balance of Nature” for turning their life around, please know their life may have turned around for some reason, but it wasn’t because they took these little miracle capsules.
