That was six months ago and since then I just stopped. I could feel the difference from the get go, I slept deeper and better and uninterrupted. My energy level is much better and now I realize what kind of a huge load that was lifted off my system. Animal products used to block my energy

It was an all time suppressor. I lost weight without even trying. I lost 8 kilos in less than 2 months and I never rebounded. My skin is better, the black rings under my eyes are gone and people who know me wonder why I look younger. I now play sports, more than before. I just ran a half marathon and I am training for my first ever triathlon
