Minor & Trace Elements



Balling Trace elements 1, 2 & 3 serve as a balancing solution for the Balling Light and Classic Method.

The addition of trace elements to the Balling salts represents a complete primary care system. This consumption oriented addition effectively prevents the dreaded “Old Tank Syndrome“.
