Discovering the Truth Behind the Balance of Nature | Scam or Real Deal?


  • My step-mom was on pain meds for her hip pain and the medication made her sick and didn’t help much with pain.
    She was already taking the 3 capsules of fruits and 3 capsules of veggies.
    I was an assistant health coach with balance of nature at the time and I knew for pain that she should take 6 veggie and 6 fruit capsules daily to help with pain.
    After a few days of taking the additional dosage, her pain stopped and increased her energy.
    That witnessed to me personally.
    She passed away a year later from dementia. My dad who is 90 increased his dosage from 3 and 3 to 6 and 6 because he saw the health benefits my step-mom got from increased dosage.

  • I have been taking this in conjunction with a testosterone supplement for 2 years. I think it works for me as I have a lot of energy for my work and my 9 year old twins. I can go all day energy wise at work and still have something in the tank for the kids. It doesn’t mean it’s good for everyone. It just works for me.

  • I talked to my doctor about taking Balance of Nature to get more fruits and vegetables in my daily routine. He recommended I do NOT take B of N due to the fact I take a "Statin" and B of N contains grapefruit. One should not eat grapefruit when on a "Statin". He also mentioned it is better to get the fibre from fruits and veggies and not rely on a pill or capsule.

  • I wouldn't buy Balance of Nature, a regular advertiser on talk radio, including being the top advertiser on the former “The Rush Limbaugh Show” in 2020, has agreed to pay $1.1 million to settle a consumer protection lawsuit over claims of false advertising.

    Evig, a Utah-based company that does business as Balance of Nature, was ordered to pay $850,000 in civil penalties and investigative costs, along with $250,000 in restitution to customers, according to CBS News.

    The lawsuit was brought on by several district attorneys in California. Napa County DA Allison Haley, who filed the case in Napa County Superior Court with the California Food, Drug, and Medical Device Task Force, said, "Making misleading statements about their products and signing customers up for recurring charges without their knowledge are complete violations of the public's trust and the law."

    According to the suit, Balance of Nature claimed one serving of its fruit products, which weighs about two grams, contained the "nutritional equivalent of over five servings of fruits per dose."

    Another claim of "Balance of Nature Fruit and Veggies" supplements, said three capsules provided as much nutrition as "eating more than 10 servings of a salad made with 31 different fruits and vegetables."

    Additionally, prosecutors say that Balance of Nature claimed their products could prevent, treat, mitigate or cure serious diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, fibromyalgia, and cancer, using customer testimonials to make false claims.

    "The truth can be a hard pill to swallow," Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a statement. "This company was dishonest in selling its products to the public. We will fight to make sure companies tell the truth to protect the health and welfare of our citizens."

    The company is also alleged to have violated state law by automatically renewing subscriptions, charging a monthly fee without clearly disclosing terms, not giving customers an adequate acknowledgment of enrolling, and not allowing customers to cancel online.

    The judgment says any California resident who purchased company products in the last six years is to receive a notice on how to go about getting a refund.

    In April 2020, not-for-profit consumer advocate Truth in Advertising filed with the FTC and the Food and Drug Administration claiming Balance of Nature was making false claims about its products being able to combat the coronavirus.

    According to the Truth in Advertising filing, Balance of Nature falsely made claims that its supplements can “prevent and help treat the coronavirus by boosting a person’s immune system,” the New York Post reported at the time.

  • I rolled my eyes on the last commercial that said that these people mysteriously became healthy and energetic from freeze dried food that was put into a pill. They never mention if these people went on a proper diet, exercise, etc…..just these pills magically made them healthy. All these are, is modern day snake oil.

  • I found this February, 2020 letter from the Federal Drug Administration to the company that makes Balance of Nature. To say it supports our skepticism about this product is an understatement.

  • I'm calling it out as my doctor's have nothing to loose by recommending these as they would prescribe it if it would help and the doctors I visit don't recommend it nor prescribe it, so I doubt they will do anything , and that goes for all other health or weight loss products if your doctor doesn't recommend or prescribe it , it doesn't work

  • People who buy Balance of Nature products are spending $89.00 for what is in fact (for example) 2 bananas and 2 apples, plus 2 green peppers and some carrots (and whatever else they had laying around)! Those are $15 cucumbers! Those are $12 bananas! Who thinks that putting a few fruits and vegetables in capsules magically makes them more nutritious than the fruits and vegetables that went into them? Who thinks that freeze dried fruits and vegetables are more nutritious than fresh, and worth 10X as much as fresh? THAT is what Balance of Nature is telling us, and which apparently millions of intellectually challenged Americans have fallen for.

    IT’S A SCAM!

  • Balance of Nature is simply dried, powdered fruit put in capsules. That’s all it is, and one entire jar contains only, at most, several dried fruits or vegetables… FOR WHICH THEY CHARGE $89.00/2 (small) JARS OF CAPSULES! You can get the same, and likely much better nutrition by eating several fruits and vegetables, which would cost only a few dollars!

    Make no mistake, Balance of Nature is one of the most outrageous scams to his the airwaves EVER.

  • I couldn't get out of bed, and now i'm playing GOLFFF!!!!!!

    And standing on my head!!!! And everything is upside down!!!

  • Dietary supplement company Balance of Nature to pay $1.1 million over misleading advertising

    The settlement was secured by a group of district attorneys offices, including several in the SF Bay Area
    A dietary supplement company agreed to pay a $1.1 million settlement after a group of California district attorneys — including several in the Bay Area — challenged the company’s claims that its freeze-dried capsules could cure diabetes, lupus and numerous other ailments.

    Evig LLC — which does business as Balance of Nature — agreed to the settlement after the California Food, Drug and Medical Device Task Force filed a civil lawsuit against the company, claiming that its advertising campaigns across California “were not supported by competent and reliable scientific evidence,” according to a news release by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

    About $250,000 of the settlement has been set aside for customer restitution, meaning that any California resident who bought a Balance of Nature product in the last six years may be able to claim a refund. The other $850,000 portion of the settlement will go toward civil penalties and investigative costs, the release said.

    “The truth can be a hard pill to swallow,” said Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, in a statement. “This company was dishonest in selling its products to the public. We will fight to make sure companies tell the truth to protect the health and welfare of our citizens.”

    The company’s misleading advertising campaign centered on capsules that claim to be filled with freeze-dried and powdered fruits and vegetables. The company claimed those capsules contained heaps of servings of fruits and vegetables — so much so that they could either cure or treat a long list of diseases, including arthritis, fibromyalgia and cancer, the task force said. But none of that was supported by actual scientific evidence, the task force said.

    The task force also claimed that Balance of Nature broke California’s Automatic Renewal Law by wrangling customers into a subscription program — which charged a monthly fee — without first clearly laying out its terms.

    “Balance of Nature made dubious claims that their products could treat or cure serious diseases placing the public’s health in danger,” Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley said in a statement. “Customers have the right to expect the products they purchase to work as advertised.”

    The company did not admit liability in the settlement. Company officials did not immediately return a call for comment from the Bay Area News Group.

    District attorney’s offices in Alameda, Marin, Napa, Santa Cruz, Solano, and Sonoma counties also joined in the lawsuit.

  • What an idiot. Today's technology is different than a few years ago. Everything is powered from either freeze dried or dehydrated naturally, that is how you can get 31 fruits and vegetables in one capsule. All veggies mixed together, and all fruits mixed together. It is possible, stop the crap that it is not possible. Fruits and veggies can be grounded into powder form and dried before going into capsule. Technically fruits and veggies are dried before grinding and dried again after grinding. Powdered fruits and veggies retain many benefits for health reasons. The reason of the price is packaging and marketing, which is nothing new.

  • Thank you I for a look at the other side of the story!I asked my doctor about this product and he said he would
    Rather have eat some extra fruit and veggies per day. 🙃

  • Spend my $90.00 a month on fresh fruit and veggies. 100% sure it's not from organic products. The numbers of veggies is impossible to put in a capsule.

  • Nutritional health effects your blood works Microscopically over 90 days at least blood and cell health brings excellent health design by a doctor.

  • No, it's freeze dried technology the shrink the vegetable and when hits the liquid in your stomach they expand. Drink lots of water with this product.

  • Notice mist of the FANS in commercials are professionals? Doctors. Best to eat fruits and veggies. I prefer the taste of fresh over powder anyday.

  • This product is not BBB accredited. It has many people suffering from explosive diarrhea. Colitis. IBS. It's a scam. They powder veggies and fruits and claim they give you all you need. Fresh fruits and veggies are best. And not as expensive as Balance of Nature. Too many complaints about cancelling and fighting to get refunds. They are impeding on customers decision to do what they want for the money

    The Founder, Dr. Douglas Howard Said Trump Was Right About Hydroxychloroquine & Therapeutics

  • I am a subscriber of the Harvard Health Publishing and every topic about vitamins says studies shows taking vitamins has no benefits to good health!

  • Ugh, this company is owned by Scientology people, so it must be 100% BS.

  • It's a crock you can't cram that much into six pills.

  • Ha! If there are 10 calories in three capsules than there is definitely not enough

  • I think it’s a scam. People should just quit being lazy and eat fruit/vegetables. Go have a salad, a banana in the morning an apple for lunch. Go outside walk around get a good night sleep read a book. I think it could be that there are fruits and vegetables in in, but not enough I also feel that there are very hidden ingredients.
