By Christa Way
Motivation to fortify Body Balance was prompted by the escalating soil depletion seen across the world as well as the simultaneous decline of health seen. We are all aware of the studies done in Brazil at the earth summit in 1992 – 20 years ago - where the United States was determined to have 85% soil depletion. The issues affecting soil depletion then have not improved, therefore the needs for nutrition today are much greater than they were almost 30 years ago when Body Balance was first formulated. In addition to this, the levels of stress have gone up and we are dealing with more toxic load and our food supply is being more adulterated than ever before; therefore the need for more minerals. Lets look at the improvements.
Changes in the Aloe Vera in Body Balance:
Aloe vera is known to have more than 200 healing nutrients including glycoproteins, minerals, vitamins and polysaccharides, ect. The problem with saccharides is that they are easily destroyed in the processing and are normally available in only tiny amounts in Aloe Products. It is amazing that there are so many benefits reported on the use of Aloe in spite of this. Life Force has improved the processing of aloe in the result is:
- Polysaccharide Count has gone way up.
- Why is this important?
- Saccharides primarily act as a bridge between Foreign proteins (such as viruses, bacteria and fungus) and Immune cells call Macrophages which destroy those foreign proteins. Now not only does the Aloe tell the immune cells where these pathogens are, but helps the macrophage go straight to the foreign protein and destroy it!
- Saccharides also protect the bone marrow from damage by toxic chemicals. Therefore the new Body Balance will push our bone and joint health sky high. We are bombared by toxins in our environment daily. If there are any mineral deficiencies at all, for example in the bones and connective tissues, then toxic chemicals move in. Something has to use up that space. If it isn't a mineral, then it will be a chemical. There cannot be a vacuum. Bone marrow is where our immune system is birthed, therefore this will up our immune health at the same time.
- These long chain sugars inject themselves into every cell membrane in the body. This increases the permeability of the cell walls. Now the toxins can flow out better and the nutrients can come in more easily.
- We see improved cellular metabolism which will be seen in overall energy production improvement
Changes in the Sea Vegetables in the Body Balance
- There are now 60% more Sea vegetables than before. -- That's more than double. Our body needs according to the newest counts 82 minerals a day. Nothing else even comes close to this count.
- After a lot of experimenting with the combinations of Sea Vegetables, they have changed the ratios of the 9 different kinds of sea vegetables to enhance the healing ability and increase the mineral count in the Body Balance.
- What this means for us:
More mineral content! Minerals are the foundation of all health. All enzyme activity involves minerals. Everything one of the billions of processes that happens in the human body starts with enzymes - for example heart beat, nerve impulses, brain function, and digestion, ect. Those enzymes are fed by minerals. Therefore no enzyme functions well without the full range of minerals available. In addition, without the minerals no other nutrients can be used by the body. Minerals need to come from food – Supplementation of minerals doesn't work very well. *See example below Minerals have to be taken together in right ratios or things get out of balance. Since the soils are deplete in minerals, we have to get adequate minerals from the sea. Trace minerals are as equally important for proper functioning of the cells as are macro minerals that we are more aware of. We cannot build optimum health without either. The unique health giving properties of the Specific combination of the 9 sea vegetables and the aloe of Body Balance has a unique synergistic effect. Christa had eaten sea weed for years before taking Body Balance, yet when she started taking Body Balance she was mineral deficient. Body Balance is more effective than just taking Aloe with Sea Vegetables. We know that Aloe is a carrier that helps take minerals into the cells, yet in Christa's experience, the formulation of Body Balance gives greater results than anything she had tried.
- All our cells will be more efficient in taking in nutrients
- all our cells will be better at ridding toxins
- All cells will have access to a new higher level of energy
- Deeper sense of vitality
- Immune cells will be way more potent in ability to track down and kill pathogen. The new polysaccarides build a bridge between the pathogens and the immune cell so now the immune cells can't miss!
- Will be sick a lot less
- Allergies will improve.
- Every process in the body will operate at a higher level from heart beat, nerve impulses, brain function, digestion, etc.
- Christa starts everyone on 4 oz. / day and then ups it when they can to 8 oz./ Day. She continues to do the same recommendation, even if a person is really weak. If this makes them uncomfortable (detox) for any reason, it can be cut back .
- She anticipates that there won't be a significant increase in detox because the healing benefits are stronger.
- She does anticipate seeing quicker benefits for new people as well as seeing new results for people who have been drinking it for years.
- The company is working on the Powdered Body Balance fortification and there is no word on when or if that will be changed. The aloe is the part to figure out because it is never dried in the liquid Body Balance.
- The Body Balance can be used topically for skin issues. Just spray it on the skin. The Aloe is well known for its soothing/healing abilities and absorbing water and nutrients. It is helpful for reducing scarring and is a good aftershave. The nutrients are absorbed through the skin as well.
- Will be available in New Zealand 2 to 3 months after the U.S.
- It is expected that people will cell saturate in less time with less product.
- Body Balance's aloe is only the gel from the inside of the aloe leaf. There are 3 layers of an aloe leaf – outer skin, membrane and the inner gel. There is a substance called aloin that is part of the inner membrane of the skin. This aloin induces diarrhea and is contraindicated for pregnancy as it causes contractions in the abdomen. Life Force uses only the gel from inside the leaf so it is totally safe.
- Body Balance is sustainable harvested from wild plants. What this means is that they don't rip the plants up by the roots, rather they just cut off the tops. This accomplishes two things. First, the nutrients are more concentrated in the new growth and secondly, this prunes the plant so they grow even faster.
- Radiation. Radiation moves quicker in the air than in the water. Therefore, there have been radiation contamination from Fukishima seen in the Pacific and on the West Coast. Life Force doesn't harvest their sea vegetables in the Pacific at all. They harves in the North Atlantic close to Canada. In addition Life Force tests for radiation contamination in their product and find it to be clear of any contamination.
- Aloe is still grown in Mexico at a different farm but still in the same area.
* Example of what can happen to a person who takes an iron Supplement: (from Dr. Paul Eck's studies)
- Sodium Goes Up as a consequence of stimulating the adrenal glands.
- Magnesium goes down because sodium lowers magnesium
- Calcium goes down to try to maintain the same calcium/magnesium ration
- Potassium goes up when Calcium goes down
- Nitrogen goes down because the person is going into fast oxidaiton, he is starting to cannabalize his own proteins, instead of building them
- Copper goes down because tissues respiration is speeding up. If the copper level goes too low, the person moves into a cancer danger zone
- Zinc goes down as copper goes down to maintain the proper ration with it. Lowering of zinc will eventually exhaust the adrenals making you more tired than before you started taking the iron.
- Manganese goes up since zinc and manganese normally move in opposite directions. Eventually, manganese reserves will become depleted. This is unfortunate because Manganese in combination with iron makes a person strong physically and emotionally
Result is that a person is weaker than he was before he began taking the iron supplements. Each mineral in the body has an effect on all the other minerals. No mineral works alone. This is why taking Body Balance is the only safe way to get your extra minerals because it is balanced perfectly for the use of our cells by the Creator.
