Lauri Aesoph M. ND ©

We are faced with many nutritionally challenging situations everyday: pollution, emotional and physical stress, cigarette smoke. Weight loss, especially when rigorous, is one more. Fortunately, we now know that your ideal weight can be achieved through healthful eating and exercise. Don't hesitate using a balanced nutritional supplement while making lifestyle changes. While losing pounds, just don't lose sight of your ultimate goal: wholesome foods, a physically active life and realistic body image.
