BioBalance® is a local company that provides health solutions anchored on nutritional science. More and more research shows how nutrient deficiencies are the root cause of most chronic symptoms and serious diseases.
With the belief is that each body has a unique nutrient requirement which makes one’s optimal levels different from the other, we came up with an approach called Measured Wellness®.
In this approach, nutrient deficiencies and toxicities are first measured through comprehensive testing, then a customized food and supplement protocol is carefully crafted to restore your body to a nutritionally balanced health. To deliver this solution, BioBalance® has partnered with world-class nutrient and specialized laboratories and delivers only pure and potent vitamins. Increased energy, resistance to disease, and overall vitality are but a few of the benefits of being in optimal health.
Illness medicine specialists take care of the disease. At BioBalance®, Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe®) specialists take care of health for disease prevention. Together, they form a complete spectrum of health care.
