Whether we’re athletes or just someone who regularly work out to stay healthy and in shape, we all could use some sort of encouragement from time to time. I stumble upon the Power Balance perfomance bracelet that claim to tap into our bodies’ natural energy and balance it according to our needs while browsing online for a Birthday gift. I wasn’t really bother about it functionality at first as at first glance it looks very fashionable but as I keep reading more about the bracelet I found that, there had been a lot of media regarding the the Power Balance bracelet which had claims to improve one Flexibility, Strength and overall balance. This make me more curious to know more about this product and being a skeptic myself I decided to do a little bit of research regarding the subject to find out if it really does help one improve his performance.
What is Power Balance?
Power Balance is Performance Technology designed to work with your body’s natural energy flow. Founded by athletes for athletes, Power Balance is a favorite among elite athletes for whom balance, strength and flexibility are important. Embedded with naturally occurring frequencies found in nature that have been known to react positively with the body’s energy field. It helps optimize an individual’s ability to achieve better balance, increased strength and greater flexibility by utilizing frequencies that occur in nature to improve the body’s ability to absorb oxygen.This helps to promote balance, flexibility, strength and overall wellness.
How Does Power Balance Work?
Power Balance is based on the idea of optimizing the body’s natural energy flow, similar to concepts behind many Eastern philosophies. The hologram in Power Balance is designed to respond to the natural energy field of the body. The Mylar material at the core of Power Balance has been treated with energy waves at specific frequencies. The resulting Mylar is believed to resonate and work with your body’s natural energy flow to help enable you to perform at the best of your ability.
Power Balance uses a Mylar hologram coded with body beneficial frequencies which reacts with the body’s energy field to create a harmonic loop. This loop maximizes energy distribution and increases the body’s ability to absorb and deliver more oxygen to various parts of the body. The Mylar material at the core of Power Balance has been treated with with an electrical frequency will restores your body’s electrical balance thus promoting a free exchange of positive and negative ions and align your body’s energy pathways. Thus, resulting it to resonate and work with your body’s natural energy flow to help enable you to perform at the best of your ability.
I was really skeptic about it until I actually did the Power Balance Test and experience the Power Balance for myself. The Power Balance test is a test that will test one flexibility, strength and balance.
It’s hard for me to digest but I went “WOW” when I did the test. You can literally see the result in front of your very eyes. The one that amaze me most of all is the flexibility test as it truly shows how much more flexible one could go with the Power Balance on.
Many are still left arguing if Power Balance actually work. Somehow it seems all too convenient putting on a bracelet can phenomenally increase strength, balance, and flexibility. While the bracelets was endorsed by many athletes and celebrities alike, there are still many skeptics. Many still believe the bracelet works via the placebo effect. Which means any improvement in balance, flexibility, and strength is simply a result of positive thinking and in believing in the bracelet whereby it is more of “mind-over-matter”. One can’t deny that the human mind is an extremely powerful and capable enough of performing the unthinkable at times. Whether performing better athletically is achieve from believing in self or in a bracelet. The only way to find out if it does work is to do your own research and try one for yourself. I tried and I believe.
Beware of Fake Power Balance Band
How to spot a fake?
1. Check is the word PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGY under the name POWER BALANCE. If you’ll notice the letter “P” of performance technology is aligned in the space of POWER and BALANCE it means it in the dot area.
2. The hologram, as you see the “PB” Hologram, the area outside the PB Logo has a small PB logo as well, if you move the view of the logo and you can easily notice that. and in fake power balance you might find it hard to locate or not too clear.
3. The whole Power Balance Baller should be clean and has no excess rubbers.
I had been using the Power Balance for running close a almost a month now and it maybe hard to for me to explain it but I have seen some improvement in my running form. The reason for the improvement could be due to my training or my diet but personally I feel that if it works for you then one should carry on wearing it…
However it may have work for me but I can guarantee that it would work for you. There is no assurance it can work for everyone. That s why Power Balance offer a no-questions-asked, money-back guaranty: If one is not satisfied they can just return the product within 30 days with proof of purchase.

Please remove this review as PowerBalance has admitted that their wristbands are a scam:
In our advertising we stated that Power Balance wristbands improved your strength, balance and flexibility.
We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims and therefore we engaged in misleading conduct in breach of s52 of the Trade Practices Act 1974.
I’ve got to know it from: http://gizmodo.com/5723577/powerbalance-admits-their-wristbands-are-a-scam
POWER BALANCE is a scam.
if you have one then I doubt you think it’s a scam. Maslow pyramid of needs, self actualization. we all need something to believe and feel good of. A mind is a powerful things we just need to find the right key to activate it.
Just for ‘balance’ – http://news.discovery.com/human/power-balance-maker-admits-bands-are-worthless.html
I guess if you have it, you won’t think it is worthless. We all need something to believe in sometime (:
I have heard of the power balance scam in the Internet. Not sure how true it is but the PB works for me. Initially, i wore it for the same reason like yours, fashionable and it has my fav color:PINK. However, when i did capoeira workout, i realised that my could balance so well on my right side (i wore the PB on my right wrist) but couldnt balance well on my left side. Hence, i wore on both side and i can feel the difference when doing the workout. I felt so confident doing all the kickings without any fear of falling. 🙂
Judging by the money involved in professional sports arenas nowadays where everyone would try just about any means to gain an edge, this stuff would be sold at thousand times above its marketed price now if it can do even a fraction of what it claimed it could….. if it is even for sale at all
