I heard that the balance turns into jelly in your stomach and it's not good for stomach? Any thoughts on that?

  • This is why we recommend you drink it immediately. Drink immediately. The fiber matrix in the Balance thickens quickly and becomes a gel. You want that to happen in the stomach before your, to get maximum results.

Statin drugs work by blocking the enzyme that your liver needs to produce cholesterol. Although statins have limited effect on HDL (good) cholesterol, it does succeed in lowering your LDL cholesterol. However, side effects of statins are very serious. Unicity Balance is the #1 clinically proven natural alternative, and it's the safer option.

  • The fiber in Benefiber comes from wheat starch, while it's next closest OTC competitor Metamucil contains the seeds of psyllium plant. Other than it offering 3 grams of wheat starch it has no nutritional value. Unicity Balance is a patented blend of blend of soluble and insoluble fibers, phytosterols with vitamins and minerals. Unicity Balance reduces your appetite, absorbs and removes fat, promotes fat-burning ability, and decreases leptin resistance.

What is difference between Unicity Balance versus a Metamucil product. Metamucil touts lowering cholesterol at a fraction of the cost.

  • Metamucil is a soluble fiber from psyllium husks that works by stimulating peristalsis like a bulk-forming laxative, and slowing intestinal transit.

Why does the Unicity Balance fiber matrix have maltodextrin in it? Does maltodextrin spike glucose?

  • Maltodextrin is commonly used in food production. There is a small amount of maltodextrin in the Balance formula as it helps to bind the ingredients together, it improves the texture (this is all basically fiber matrix) and it also helps to increase the shelf life. The Balance formula is an unprocessed food product in its most raw and natural state possible, so therefore it needs something to assist with its stability and shelf live as it is packaged, warehoused and shipped all over the world from our production facilities. Maltodextrin itself does have a high GI rating if you were to eat it by itself or in a high glycemic processed food, however in the Balance the amount of it is so insignificant in proportion to the rest of the fiber matrix it has no impact on glucose.

I forgot to take the Unicity Balance before my lunch. Do I still drink a balance or wait before next meal?

  • Dissolve the contents of one packet or one scoop into 8 to 10 fl. oz. of liquid (water or juice), stir or shake vigorously and drink immediately. Take it 10 to 15 minutes before your meal. If you forget to drink the Balance before your meal then you should still take it to get that fiber matrix in there. It will not have the same impact as before your meal, but adding the fiber and other nutrients is still better than nothing at all.

Is Unicity Balance cholesterol also good for sugar control? Or do you have a separate product?

  • This matrix of fiber in Unicity Balance is specifically designed to absorb much more blood sugar and supports healthy cholesterol. Click here to learn more about the benefits and ingredients.

I am type 2 diabetic. Do you have any specific recommendations for me when using the Feel Great System?

  • We have had great results with clients taking the Balance before bed for the first few weeks. If the fasting blood sugar levels are high, take another Balance in the morning. Then drink the Unimate. Just keep an eye on the sugars. When you get hungry later in the morning then eat, but have a Balance before your first meal. That first meal focus should be on high protein. Wait 4 four hours for your next meal, then take a Balance before your meal. For the dinner meal take a 15 min walk after each meal, get the body moving to burn that glucose. Please remember that health is not a one size fits all as there are so many variables. Consistency is key!

It looks like the system does not work. It is not working for me.

  • In most cases, it takes a consistent 90 days of taking the Feel Great products to have measurable results. This is considering when we are addressing multiple underlying metabolic concerns that have taken years to manifest and compounded by the use of medications for conditions such as elevated cholesterol, blood sugars and blood pressure. Quite often we see the best results when we include some dietary changes and physical activity/exercise. I am aware of the marketing and promoting tactics on Tiktok and other social platforms. I personally like to take a more realistic and supportive approach having improved my own health and as a practitioner supporting others for decades. Promoting the Feel Great System as a one-size fits all quick results solution can bring unrealistic expectations.

Is the Feel Great System a network marketing (MLM) business?

  • In order to facilitate the best personal experiences, Unicity utilizes a direct selling model. This approach allows distributors to work with customers, which allows customers to learn about and experience Unicity products with somebody they know and trust. Unicity International was founded on the roots and heritage that go back to 1903 when the first Rexall drugstore opened. When the product was originally placed in retail stores throughout the United States in the late 1980's, there was one problem: it didn’t sell as well as expected. Although the product had been endorsed by professionals for its unique qualities, it needed more explanation than the traditional nutrition label could offer. As a result, in 1989 a new person-to-person direct sales process was implemented as part of a new Rexall Drugs division, called Rexall Showcase.
