While earning his medical degree from Pavlov First Medical Institute in St. Petersburg, Dr. Howard’s thoughts began to turn more and more to nutrition. It was the first time in his life he had witnessed firsthand the effect of socioeconomic diseases (diseases caused by social or economic status, not just germ theory). The Iron Curtain had only recently fallen. Most of the people of Russia were very poor at the time, many living on black bread and water. It became clear to Dr. Howard that those who could afford, buy, or raise fruits and vegetables were healthy—and those who could not, were sick. The line was distinctive.
Through eating enough whole fruits and vegetables, he knew, people would keep their bodies in balance while getting all of the phytochemical they need in the proper ratio. After coming to this understanding, in 1997 Dr. Howard developed Balance of Nature Fruits & Veggies, a supplement replacing multivitamins. Balance of Nature contains only flash dried fruits and vegetables, which enables people to conveniently acquire more than ten servings of fruits and vegetables a day, exceeding the federal recommendation for daily fruit and vegetable intake. Balance of Nature products are the culmination of Dr. Howard’s passion for people, health, and science.
