Appendix Removal – Fast Recovery!
I am back at work 3.5 days after my appendix being removed and I credit it all to Body Balance and Taheebo.
Thursday, January 27 at around 10 am I was having stomach cramps and by 3 pm I was in the clinic at work, 4 pm at the Urgent care near my home and 10 pm in an ambulance to Shady Grove Hospital to have my appendix removed. At 11 pm they removed my appendix, 12 midnight I was in post-op, 1:30 am I was in my room and at 11 am the next morning (Friday) I was being released. My appendix did not puncture or burst and because it was inflamed but otherwise in good condition when they removed it from my belly button, they did not even put me on antibiotics, because no toxins were released into my system. I had no pain, never took any pain medication, ate pot roast for lunch and pork shops for dinner on Friday. The next day went to game night with friends, church and to get my nails done on Sunday and I was in the office at noon on Monday. I will be back at the gym tomorrow morning at 6 am and my only restrictions are no lifting over 15 pounds for the first month and no crunches or abdominal exercises for 30 days (however, my 9 minute mile on the elliptical, is ok, if I feel up to it)
I really can say that my 45 minute workout a day, my 1200 calorie diet, and my daily regimen of Body Balance (6 oz) is why I am back to my routine in 3.5 days after surgery!
Thank you Life Force!
More Energy, Stamina, and Mental Focus
The very first day I started the Re-Balance, Recharge and Recovery, I noticed a change in my energy levels, stamina, and the ability to mentally process everything on my plate for the day. After a few days of putting this pure nutrition into my body, I realized I hadn’t even thought about drinking my daily second cup of coffee, because I was already aware and ready to take what was next.
There is no other product on the market that is like Re-Balance Recharge and Recovery, I will confidently recommend this to anyone needing greater lifestyle balance, better energy, recovery from positive or negative stress, or simply to ramp up the full nutrition Body Balance and OsteoProCare offers.

Hormone Issues, Energy
After having 2 miscarriages within a year (one at 16 weeks one at 7), I felt down and that I was lacking something. I also felt that I needed a bit of healing inside and out. I tried all sorts of pills and felt worse while I was on them. I decided to stop taking them altogether.
I had been looking for an organic product that could help me with all sorts of things from fluid retention to hormone imbalance. After only a few days of taking Liquid Body Balance, I started to feel better and gained more energy. I also felt happier with the additional energy that I experienced. I have introduced it to mother who suffers menopause night sweats and is waking every 2 hours. She now sleeps right through the night, has more energy, and gets up early to garden.
I am so grateful to have been introduced to this wonderful product and will continue to keep using it and reap the rewards.
Hi there, my name’s Ray Grigonis and I’m excited to tell you about a great health change that’s come my way. I do home remodeling work and over the years inhaled many chemicals, which included arsenic from pressure treated wood. I discovered that I’d acquired many health problems due to this and learned that I was on the road to getting some serious diseases such as Parkinsons at an early age. I worked with various wellness products, the latest being natural food supplements in pill form from Australia.
My wife is a Holistic Therapist and she started recommending Body Balance. I listened in to some of her gatherings, while she introduced this product to others and heard many wellness testimonials of the positive effects people had from drinking Body Balance. My wife had asked me if I’d like to try it, but I told her at the time that I wanted to give these other products a fair chance, as they was showing some results, even though they were very expensive and slow moving. A month or two later, I had learned more about the mineral depletion of the soils in the world with the U.S. topping the charts in depletion. Then Australia surpassed us. At this point I decided to try the my wife suggested.
Also, with one of my issues being digestion, I learned that the tablets I had been taking could only utilized up to 20 percent and in contrast, the liquid would be taken into my blood stream through my mouth up to 98%. This blew me away and I started to notice in a very short period of time, several changes in my health; my energy increased, my Hypothyroid (which was a Goiter) returning to normal. My digestion improved and I experienced many other positive subtle health changes. A few months later I went in for a full exam with my medical doctor and my thyroid checked out perfect with no medications, as did all of my functions. I’ll be drinking this stuff for life.
Sincerely Ray Grigonis

Night Blindness Gone!
I have had night blindness for years and after 4 days of using the Taheebo I notice when driving in the dark that I wasn’t having problems with the lights of the on coming cars.
Kathy Price and I was had a booth in the Twin Falls, Idaho County fair (6 days) our hours we’re from 10 am to 10 pm we were living on a few hours of sleep and by now I would be sick and I’m not. I thank Life Force for producing a wonderful new product Taheebo.

My husband Stan has suffered with Type II diabetes. Stan began drinking Liquid Body Balance in September 2008. In November when he went for his visit to the doctor, Stan was told that he no longer needed insulin injections and that his blood sugar has been under control for the last two months. We couldn’t believe our ears. He is feeling so much better. Thank you Life Force for this product.

Arterial Fibrillation – Improves and My Energy is Back!
Arterial fibrillation, came into my life in July of 2006. With this condition, the danger is that blood can pool, causing clots, that can move to the heart or brain. Along with it came an unrelenting exhaustion that was always present. It caused me to give up my job in May of 2007. Without strength or energy, my main occupation became holding down my recliner (It was the hardest job I have ever had).
My working days were pretty much over because of not having energy or stamina. In August of 2008 I was introduced to Liquid Body Balance. I began to take four ounces a day. I have now been taking it for three months. I can tell you, it is hard for me to believe the energy and endurance I have now. My get up and go is back. I am out of my recliner.
I searched earnestly for a product that I could feel and see the difference, with results that could be measured. I tried many products. This is the best I have ever found.
On October 29, 2008 I was given a heart cath. My Dr. was pleased and surprised by the improved condition of my heart. He said it was stronger and functioning better with blood flowing more freely through one of my arteries (I had a stint put in November, 2006). He also said, you might want to go back to work. He was against it last year.
Weight Loss Without Trying, Back Pain, Acid Reflux
I’ve been taking Body Balance for 5 months now with some great benefits to my health, my weight and mental happiness. I lost 20 lbs without even trying, feel great and have great mental clarity. I was troubled with back pain and was taking 4 or 5 Aleve a day, along with anything else I could get my hands on to stop the pain. I don’t even take aspirin now! My skin is softer and my fingernails grow better than they have my whole life.
My sister was having problems with Acid reflux, she was rundown, and I have to say I was worried about her. I gave her a month’s supply of Body Balance as a gift and she was hooked. She is happy now without the problems of Acid reflux and her energy level is back – and that is after only a month on the product. – Tonie T., WA
Chron’s Disease, Night Sweats, Hot Flashes all Gone
My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease almost 4 years ago, he was 13. Within 1 year they had him on about 8 pills, 2 of them steroids, and he still didn’t feel well. I started researching vitamins to see if I could help him another way. After trying a few I found out about Body Balance. It’s made from 22 sea vegetables and aloe vera juice. It is a whole natural food with vitamins, minerals and trace elements. He is now only on 1 pill (Nexium ) and I may start weaning him off of that also. He’s doing great and his new doctor said that from his colonoscopy/endoscopy he would not even have know he had Crohn’s. I also had been told it would help me with my hot flashes. I take a combination of the Body Balance and also OsteoProCare which is calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, and Omegas 3, 6 and 9. All the things my body needs anyway. I had 10-20 hot flashes per day plus waking in the night from sweating. Now, with Body Balance, I have no more hot flashes, it’s wonderful.Janet G., Pennsylvania
All Questions Answered About Body Balance
What does Body Balance taste like?
It has a pleasant taste of black cherry and honey with a savory hint. If you put it in a dark colored juice, you’ll never know it’s there. Taste may vary slightly seasonally.
Does it have to be refrigerated?
Refrigeration is recommended. Many prefer the taste of it cold, but if you leave it out on the counter overnight, do not worry. Body Balance’s nutrients do not begin to degrade until much higher temperatures (than a house’s climate) are reached. Keep out of sunlight.
Can I take Body Balance with medication(s)?
In 30 years, Life Force International has not received any reports of Body Balance interfering with other drugs. However, Life Force always recommends talking to your healthcare provider before trying any dietary supplement.
Is there a certain time of day I should take Body Balance?
Whatever works best for you. Some prefer to start their day with it at breakfast, others save it for their afternoon slump. You may find a different time altogether that fits your schedule.
When does each bottle expire?
For best nutritional benefits, use opened Body Balance within 40 days. Unopened, it has a shelf life of 18 months.
Why is sea vegetation so important?

The important thing to remember is that Body Balance has not just one type of seaweed, but some from the red, brown, and green seaweed families for the most benefits. There is no product like it on the market. So much nutrition for so little money!
I am on medication for blood thinners. Can I take Body Balance even though it contains Vitamin K?
The rule of thumb with Body Balance is that if you can eat vegetables, you can take this liquid. However, it is important that you discuss any dietary changes with your health provider to see if you have any reasons not to take this product.
How is Life Force International Body Balance made?
Body Balance is a proprietary formula developed by Wayne Hillman in the early 1980s. He is truly a pioneer in the industry. The Aloe vera used in Body Balance is grown especially for Life Force International, and is of the highest quality. It is grown and processed to USDA National Organic Program standards and certified by Quality Assurance International (QAI). It is certified by the International Aloe Science Council for purity and is Kosher certified by KSA. The aloe juice is taken from the inner leaf of the fillet only, and done so within hours of harvest to retain freshness and the integrity of the nutrients. The SeaNine™ is our exclusive proprietary blend of nine varieties of sea vegetables, including the full spectrum of red, brown, and green sea vegetables. Body Balance is packaged here in our facility, where it is cold-filled to further protect the product’s integrity.
Is the Aloe organic and where do you harvest it from?
The aloe in Body Balance is grown and processed according to certified organic standards. It is fresh and of the highest quality. The supplier is the largest Aloe supplier in the world. They grow, harvest and process their own Aloe. The time from field to processing is one day. Each leaf is harvested by hand and must be nicked and pulled carefully from the mother plant so as not to break the rind. Properly taken, the leaves will naturally seal themselves within a short period and the inside gel will not be exposed to oxidation or contamination. The processing plants are close to the fields. This is important because with a short ride to the processing plants the leaves will be fresher and will suffer far less bruises and other damage that can occur in transporting. Some companies spend several days getting their leaves to the processing plant while our leaves are processed within a day. When the Aloe is harvested, it is carefully preserved, saving the natural characteristics of the Aloe. Special equipment is used to ensure that the Aloe retains as much of its natural polysaccharide profile as possible. It is then shipped to our manufacturing plant, where we keep no more than two to four weeks inventory of finished Body Balance. Life Force is committed to supplying the highest quality products to our members and customers and our products are supported by a money-back guarantee.
What is the carbohydrate count in Body Balance?
The total carbohydrate per serving (1 fl oz) is 2 g, or 4 g per 2 oz serving. Total carbohydrate on the label refers to both COMPLEX and SIMPLE. The 1 g SIMPLE sugar comes from the honey and black cherry. The other 1 g of COMPLEX comes from the Aloe vera and sea vegetation. Together they form the total amount.
What are electrolytes and does Body Balance contain them?
Electrolytes are minerals that dissociate in water to form ions (charged particles like sodium, Na+) Yes, Body Balance contains a complete profile of electrolytes at the following concentrations (amounts may vary slightly per batch). Sodium (Na): 4.5 mg/30 ml serving; potassium (K): 82.5 mg/30 ml serving; chloride (Cl): 1.0 mg/30 ml serving; magnesium (Mg): 6.4 mg/30 ml serving; calcium (Ca): 6.2 mg/30 ml serving.
What are the Latin names and the common names for the sea vegetables in SeaNine™?
The Latin and common names in the SeaNine™ proprietary blend are as follows:
• Palmaria palmate – Dulse
• Fucus vesiculosus – Bladder wrack
• Chondrus crispus – Irish moss
• Ascophyllum nodosum – Norwegian kelp
• Laminaria digitata – Kombu
• Porpyra yezoensis – Nori
• Ulva lactuca – Sea lettuce
• Alaria esculenta – Winged kelp
• Gigartina chamissoi – Gigartina
Is this supplement kosher?
Yes. Body Balance is certified kosher through Kosher Supervision of America (KSA).
Is the honey used in each batch pasteurized, and is it safe to give to children under one year of age?
The honey in Body Balance is organic, raw, and not pasteurized. It is never recommended that babies under 18 months of age eat honey. The reason for this is that babies’ digestive systems are underdeveloped to handle certain factors that are naturally present in honey. By the time an infant reaches 18 months old their digestive systems have matured enough where honey is safe.
I see 9-types of seaweed in the SeaNine, does this contain iodine?
Iodine is a rare and often overlooked mineral, yet it is one that may be important in helping maintain overall and health wellbeing.
Body Balance contains 0.5 mg iodine per 30 ml serving or 500 mcg (micrograms) per 30 ml serving. The amount of iodine varies slightly per batch.
While we cannot offer specific medical advice, some studies have shown that Iodine may help the formation of thyroid hormones in the thyroid gland. Additionally, iodine-rich foods and supplements like Body Balance may potentially benefit individuals who desire to lose weight.
For specific information, consult your healthcare professional to learn if iodine-rich foods or supplements will help you achieve your wellness goals.
Does this organic liquid health supplement contain caramel coloring?
Life Force International’s products are all natural liquid whole food with no artificial coloring of any type used. Body Balance contained caramel coloring as late as 2007, but was removed when concerns about GMO corn and gluten began to come into mainstream awareness.
Does this supplement have any additional isolates added to it that I might overdo it?
Life Force International’s products are all natural liquid whole food; we do not fortify our products with additional synthetic vitamins/minerals.
The vitamins and minerals present in our products are naturally occurring, derived from whole foods and food concentrates, and present in small amounts. Therefore, there is no danger “over supplementation,” as there is with synthetic or highly processed vitamin/mineral products.
Should I stop taking vitamins/minerals if I start using your supplements?
We do not quantify the specific nutrients in Body Balance. As the Aloe Vera and SeaNine sea vegetable blend are whole foods, with nothing added or removed. For a listing of the nutrients found in Body Balance, please refer to the product data sheet found here. Life Force guarantees those trace nutrients are in Body Balance in their naturally occurring state. Most people take it and see it’s exactly what their body needed, and then realize the cost savings by not taking the handfuls of other pills.
How much sugar, in general, is put into each quart of Body Balance in the form of honey/cherry to help with the taste?
The amount of all combined sweeteners in Body Balance is 3.0 g of honey, stevia, and cherry flavors. No sugar is added.
I see there is potassium sorbate and potassium benzoate in Body Balance. How much is there and why?
First, let’s clarify that Body Balance does NOT contain sodium benzoate. Even though sodium benzoate is on the FDA’s Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) list, there have been questions in the greater nutrition community concerning its presence in foods.
The purpose of the potassium benzoate (also a salt from the benzoic acid, but not a sodium salt) and the potassium sorbate is to be a preservative. Since Body Balance is cold-processed and not pasteurized (which will damage certain nutrients in foods 100% of the time), there has to be something in it to prevent mold, bacteria, or yeast growth.
All along, the question about using the K-benzoate is whether or not benzene formation will occur when it is combined with vitamin C. (Even though benzene is a naturally occurring chemical all around us, we don’t think anyone wants to have more of it than necessary.) The part of the equation that is forgotten is that the chemical reaction that causes benzene to form is caused by UV light or heat. The heat isn’t an issue, because Body Balance is cold-processed. The UV issue also isn’t a problem–the Body Balance is mixed in certified Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) facility with no exposure to sunlight possible. Additionally, it is packed in an opaque bottle.
The FDA GRAS list states that potassium benzoate (which hasn’t received the same indictment as the sodium benzoate and has been used for over 50 years as a food preservative) can be used in amounts up to 1% of any food source it is in. Life Force uses less than 0.2% of potassium benzoate and potassium sorbate combined in each bottle of Body Balance. Over 25 years, 6000 healthcare professionals have seen the absolute excellence of this product and have endorsed it and used it with their patients.
Should I be concerned with heavy metals in Body Balance?
The answer is no, our Body Balance is perfectly safe. Our raw materials are harvested naturally, with nothing added or removed, meaning those elements could occur naturally just as they do with fruits and vegetables. We do, however, test every batch of raw materials, as well as the finished products, to ensure their safety so we can guarantee that any natural occurring materials fall well within the range of safety as determined by the FDA.
