Affiliate Disclosure

At BalancedBrawn, we believe in full transparency with our community. This affiliate disclosure provides important information about how we earn revenue through certain affiliate partnerships and programs.

Some of the links on this website are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item or service, we may receive an affiliate commission.

We only recommend products and services that we believe will provide value to our audience and align with our mission of helping people achieve a balanced lifestyle of strength and wellness. We thoroughly research and test products and services before ever promoting them.

However, you should rely on your own judgment when making purchasing decisions. We try our best to keep things fair and balanced to help you make the best choice.
