BIOBALANCE is a product range that was developed with passion and conviction by a family owned business called Atka Pharma in 2007. Initially the range only had two products. Clinton Thomas, who was part of the family, joined the business in 2011 and built on the success with an ongoing pipeline of new products. In November 2013, Atka Pharma sold the Biobalance product range to Ascendis Health. With great success, their range now includes supplements in liquid and capsule form as well as creams to support the skin with applications for both adults and children.
BIOBALANCE & CHD-FA Description: success of the BioBalance range of products is largely due to carbohydrate derived fulvic acid that offers support for various body systems, like the immune system, digestive, urinary and respiratory. It's also included in a range of topicals to support skin health. EAT DIRT! There was a time when telling someone to 'eat dirt' was an insult. But what if eating dirt was actually a suggestion for better health? A tip for improved digestion, reduced risk of colds and flu, or reducing the likelihood of infections. Would you do it? What if it was proven that eating dirt could boost your health and vitality, thanks to a rich mixture of special compounds found deep within the soil? Well, it's time to get dirty' An Acid By Any Name' Description: decades, gardeners and farmers across the country have used compost to boost the health of their flowerbeds and crops. But they may not have known that the very nutrients found in that soil could also boost their own health. Enter Fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is one of the main components of humus'the dark, nutrient-rich organic soil layer. It is considered organic because it consists of partially decomposed plant and animal matter. It ranges in colour from yellow to nearly black. A Natural Immunity Booster' Given that fulvic acid is found in some of the most unsanitary places, it is quite ironic that one of its key benefits is boosting immune function. Whether it is due to its detox benefits, super-hydration, or more, it appears that fulvic acid benefits your body inside and out. A study from 2000 found that fulvic acid has potent anti-microbial as well as anti-inflammatory properties2. Researchers concluded that it may prove to be an 'effective and safe treatment for skin infections'. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study looked at the use of fulvic acid for the treatment of eczema. Researchers divided 36 participants with eczema into two groups3. The first group received a topical ointment that contained fulvic acid. The second group was given a placebo ointment. Both groups used the treatments twice a day for four weeks. At the end of the study period, there was a significant improvement in the fulvic acid group, compared to the control. And when it came to the visual appearance of the eczema, there was a statistically significant difference in the fulvic acid group versus the placebo group. A reason that people using fulvic acid report such great skin results is likely because of its anti-inflammatory benefits. And that's because of its great mineral makeup. So, when used topically, fulvic acid appears to have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial benefits. And when taken internally, this mineral-rich water attractor helps boost immunity. Fulvic acid has several benefits: ' It is an antioxidant that helps flush toxins and heavy metals from the body ' It is a powerful electrolyte that provides the body with energy ' giving a general feeling of well-being ' It helps with the transportation of nutrients to the cells of the body, which allows them to be absorbed and used better ' It helps improve the immune system ' Fulvic acid can also be applied externally for the treatment of athlete's foot, burns, minor open wounds, skin conditions (i.e. eczema and acne) and insect bites. ' It acts as: ' An anti-inflammatory ' An antiseptic The Challenge and the opportunity'a local invention Many of the sources of naturally occurring fulvic acid have high levels of harmful heavy metals and toxins which has limited its use in human medicinal products. Carbohydrate derived fulvic acid or CHD-FA is a highly effective plant acid proven to be free from heavy metals, toxins and environmental pollutants, making it suitable for medicinal use. It has the SGS (Soci't' G'n'rale de Surveillance) certification that it is organic and is clinically proven to be a safe and effective alternative to naturally occurring fulvic acid4. CHD-FA is pure, concentrated and consistent and is manufactured from a carbohydrate source in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Process) standard factory outside Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. The CHD-FA manufacturing process, as well as the product CHD-FA, is patented and the stringent quality controls result in a product that conforms to the quality control standards from batch to batch. The BioBalance range of products contains CHD-FA. Balancing our Health BioBalance products are produced at the same manufacturing plant where CHD-FA is made and follows the same quality control process. It's available in selected stores in the Western Cape and Gauteng. PRODUCT RANGE BioBalance Immunova Ready to Take ' for immune health. A diluted liquid for daily maintenance.
