Optimal Balance™ is an excellent daily micronutrient formulation for adults and children who don't need the clinical levels found in Daily Essential Nutrients. A recent study showed how Optimal Balance™ greatly improved stress scores and sleep quality in individuals suffering with insomnia. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and botanicals designed to boost immunity, Optimal Balance™ supports women’s health and fortifies the body against chronic illness and stress.*
Optimal Balance™ is powered by our proprietary NutraTek™ mineral-delivery technology which enables vital nutrients to be optimally absorbed and efficiently cross the blood-brain barrier—delivering mind-clearing and mood-enhancing effects that average daily multivitamins can’t match.*
Optimal Balance™ - For Women is a result of more than 15 years of extensive research into physical and cognitive health. Our proprietary NutraTek™-enhanced mineral delivery technology combines each mineral with organic molecules—just like nature—to optimize absorption and distribution to body cells. As a result, Optimal Balance™ - For Women produces benefits never before seen with conventional products.*
‡Optimal Balance™ is designed for general health use and is your daily self defense against chronic illness and stress. Daily Essential Nutrients is recommended for individuals experiencing serious mood and anxiety-related disorders.*
University researchers found that Optimal Balance™ (formerly known as Daily Self Defense™) significantly improved sleep problems and stress in insomnia patients when taken at a dose of 6 capsules/day.

A superior product begins with a commitment to quality assurance. Our quality assurance is backed by over 35 years of applied nutritional science.
We use a manufacturing facility in the United States that maintains rigorous Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. Our products are manufactured in an NSF/ANSI GMP 455-2 certified facility, which is also registered with and inspected by the FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services. These standards, along with our commitment to quality, are why you can depend on the quality, potency, and purity of our products.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) help to safeguard the health of consumers as well as ensure high-quality products in accordance with dietary supplement regulations. GMP involves testing of products during the manufacturing process to ensure that ingredients are uncontaminated and in the correct amounts (as indicated on the product label) and that product will provide that same quality until the ‘best-before date’.
We choose only the best raw ingredients, which are tested separately to ensure they exceed expected quality. The separation between superior and inferior begins here.
