Unicity Balance is an orange-flavored, pre-meal drink with a patented fiber matrix that includes bioactive plant compounds, polysaccharides, and micronutrients. Unicity’s science team designed this fiber matrix to ease the impact that excess carbohydrates and cholesterol can have on the body. They also formulated Balance to provide critical vitamins, minerals, and soluble fibers to help curb your appetite.
Balance, the latest formula of Bios Life, is one of Unicity’s oldest and most popular products. It’s no surprise that this powerful product is listed in the Prescribers’ Digital Reference (a database of products consulted by healthcare professionals). Designed to supplement our fiber intake, Balance can help us beat the carb crash.
Balance might be an excellent product to try if you:
Are looking to increase your fiber intake
Are interested in maintaining healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels
Are looking to support a weight-management diet
So how do you drink it?
Drink 10-15 minutes before your two biggest meals each day for best results. Mix a single sachet with 8 oz. of flat (non-sparkling) water.
The fibers and nutrients, doing their job to support your nutrition, are designed to thicken, so it's best to drink immediately.
Double duty: Use any shaker cup
Do you have a cup on hand to mix salad dressings or protein drinks? These work great for mixing Balance. Just add water, a single sachet, and shake. (Be sure to use flat water. Shaking any carbonated liquid can be problematic!) Be mindful that you don’t need as much water for Balance as you would for a meal replacement shake. Aim for about 8 oz.—just a few quick sips but enough liquid to dissolve the powder into a drinkable form. A small blender bottle like this works well.
On-the-go: Water bottle
If you’re out to lunch with friends and want to make sure you get your Balance in before a carb-heavy meal, don’t worry; we designed Balance to work well on-the-go. Bring a water bottle along with you—you can easily mix up a pre-meal Balance in any water bottle.
Pro tip: Unicity Diamond is a reusable bottle that works well for mixing Balance, Unimate, and whatever else you like to drink. Grab your water bottle, add in Balance, and feel great about beating the potential carb crash.
Level expert: Milk frother
For best results, mix in a cup with a small handheld mixer. A handheld milk frother for making foam to add to lattes is also ideal. This method is quick and effective, evenly blending the Balance without getting a bottle dirty or requiring extra arm motion. Add flat water to a glass (be sure to leave space in the glass for the water to rise as it is mixed), then add one sachet of Balance and mix. Rinse out the glass after and fill it with water for your meal.
None of us want unnecessary kitchen gadgets crowding out our space, but if you love lattes and want to invest in making Balance a twice-a-day habit, a small handheld milk frother can be a great purchase.
Minimalist: Glass and spoon
Have a glass and spoon on hand? Pour balance into a glass of water. Remember, you don’t need to fill it fully; 8 oz. is fine. Swirl around the spoon until you have entirely dissolved the powder, removing all clumps. Drink quickly and feel good about your choice for your health!
Better late than never!
If you forget to drink your Balance 10–15 minutes before eating, don’t worry. You can take it mid- or post-meal. There isn’t a statute of limitations on getting that fiber matrix in your body! There is also no limit on how long you can take Balance. If it makes you feel great, why not make it a habit?
