Ninety-one-year-old founder Alvin “Al” Siamon developed Balance7™ in 1999 after reading reports of more than 2 million people in America stricken with strep infections. During that outbreak, more than 80,000 deaths occurred. Balance7™ is a dietary supplement that increases the pH level in the body. Much of what we eat and drink is highly acidic, and this places stress on the body. Balance7 is designed to boost alkalinity in the body and assist with energy, mental acuity, and better overall health. This is achieved by reintroducing the alkaline minerals that are leached away from the body and skeleton. This also helps cancel out the effects of lactic acid during exercise – the natural alkaline mineral content will help during the workout process and make it easier to get the most out of your workouts.
