Whether drinking the liquid or powdered Body Balance you’re getting the same potency and the same high quality ingredients. Both formulas use ingredients which are processed to retain the naturally present phytonutrients, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and more. Just as with our liquid Body Balance formula, the Aloe vera used in the powdered formula uses only the potent inner leaf fillet. Beginning with freshly harvested leaves, the inner gel (fillet) is carefully removed to minimize disruption of the Aloin layer so that the Aloin is not included with the inner gel as it can cause gastrointestinal upset when ingested. Aloe vera contains over 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds, including 12 vitamins, 20 minerals and 18 amino acids. Scientific studies have shown that Aloe vera contains many biologically active molecules, and is considered one of the most beneficial and useful botanicals on earth. It has demonstrated many important health-supporting benefits, including immune support, increasing bioavailability of nutrients, and support of GI health and digestion.
