In the 20 years since we first developed Total Balance, we have constantly made upgrades to the formula as new technology was developed and new ingredients became available.
This is the ninth generation of Total Balance. It retains many of the same core ingredients, but has a number of significant replacements and upgrades, making it our most potent and effective version of Total Balance yet.
At this stage only the Women's and Men's Premium versions have been reformulated. The new generation will be rolled out for the remainder of the Total Balance range during the first half of 2021.
Men's and Women's Premium Versions
- Vitamin K2 MK-4 reduced from 180mcgs to 90mcgs and added 90 mcgs of Vitamin K2 MK-7 in the form of MenaQ7® to bring it up to a total of 180mcgs. MenaQ7® is very beneficial for both bone and cardiovascular health; it's also what we are using in our new CX8 cardio support product. For more info about Vitamin K2 MK-7, visit our ingredients page, which includes an exclusive interview between researcher Ivor Cummins and the chief scientist at NattoPharma who manufacture this ingredient.
- We are now using a vegan source of Vitamin D3.
- We have reduced the level of Vitamin E alpha tocopherols because we have added in a pure Tocotrienol called DeltaGold®, which is high in gamma Tocotrienols. Vitamin E in the form of alpha tocopherols is quite weak and if the ratio is too high it interferes with the efficacy of Tocotrienols, which is a form of Vitamin E but MUCH more potent with some serious health benefits.
- We have included an effective dose of CyanthOx® which is extracted from wild organic Sea Buckthorn grown at high altitudes on the Tibetan plateau. This ingredient has some amazing properties. It is a lot more potent than the widely known Pycnogenol (1.7 times more) and grape seed extract (8 times more) as measured on the ORAC scale. It also has excellent immune properties and has been shown to stimulate stem cells.
You can learn more about it on our ingredient page, which includes an interview with Dr Tina Yuen, who helped develop this ingredient which is very new.
- We have replaced Folic acid with natural Folate for improved bioavailability.
- We have increased the dosage of Glutathione.
- We have added Astragalus Root Extract to help with telomere length.
- We have added Pau D'Arco Extract to help with stem cell stimulation.
- We have replaced the bilberry extract with Oxi-fend®, a highly potent New Zealand Blackcurrant extract which will be even better for the eyes than the Bilberry. This is not a simple blackcurrant powder but rather a highly concentrated water extract of blackcurrant.
- We have added in R-Lipoic Acid which is the natural form of Alpha Lipoic acid and is much more bio-available.
- We have added in Bamboo Extract to provide a natural form of silicon.
These changes are common for both the Women's and Men's versions of Total Balance Premium. There are also changes in part of both the Women's and Men's versions that are gender specific.
These changes are as follows:
Total Balance Women's Premium
We have added two extra ingredients specifically for the benefit of women's hormonal balancing to the Women's Health section:
- Damiana Leaf Extract
- Sarsaparilla Root Extract.
Total Balance Men's Premium
The purpose of this section in the Total Balance Men's Premium is as it always has been: to enhance the health of the prostate to avoid enlargement and the discomfort that goes with it. Also, it aims to help prevent the conversion of testosterone which is a real problem for many men as they age.
In this generation we have added four new ingredients to help stimulate the natural production of testosterone and to generally support the health of the male hormonal system:
- Cistanche Tubulosa stem Extract. This is an ancient plant extract said to have amazing sexual rejuvenation properties. We wouldn't go so far as to make those claims just because Genghis Khan is said to attribute his ability to have fathered hundreds of children with the help of this plant! But, it does have some serious male health benefits. We also source this from the high Tibetan plateau.
- We have included two forms of Tribulus. One being the standard fruit extract and the other what is far less common because it is several times the price and is called Bulgerian Tribulus. The Bulgerian Tribulus is concentrated with a focus on a different active. Both have good data supporting their efficacy in helping boost testosterone.
- Shilajit extract is an interesting ingredient which we source out of the Himalayan mountains. It is a type of mineral pitch which results from a very long natural process of breaking down of plant matter and minerals. Its main active is fulvic acid. It has a broad range of benefits but we have selected it for inclusion in the Men's Total Balance Premium for its properties in supporting male fertility and testosterone levels
Total Balance Premium was already unique in the world, with a combination of ingredients, efficacy and quality that we believe is unmatched anywhere. These enhancements mean our customers can take advantage of the core benefits and heritage of the Total Balance range, while benefiting from the latest advances in the supplement industry.
Bottle size.Requiring two bottles for a 30 day supply has always led to confusion so we have now had a special sized bottle made that can hold double the number of tablets. So, instead of having two bottles at 105 tablets we now have one at 210 tablets. This will help differentiate between the Premium and Standard versions of Total Balance. The price will be double the current single bottle rate. There is a slight saving in bottles and labels but the ingredient prices are up quite a bit but we are absorbing that at this time.
