“So many things I love about my shots, but the best one is the energy, no afternoon slump, I am noticeably more active and really noticed a difference the one time I forgot to take my afternoon shot!!! Haven’t had a cold this year either.”

Amanda Beauchamp

“We love the increase in energy! I have been taking both shots throughout my pregnancy and I am yet to really get sick this winter! I'm sure my body is thanking me for the extra nutrients at this time.”

Anna

“For me, it's actually the peace of mind that me and my vege-adverse 7 year old are getting some greens to help keep up healthy. I also noticed my skin had an extra glow and less fine lines too.”
