Helps with my reflux & leaky Gut
I discovered Sleepy Chocolate a couple of years ago. When I travel, or have an excess of stress, it’s sometimes difficult to sleep at night. I found that one, or two sections of a bar, is enough for a more restful sleep. Even if I wake a little later, I’m able to drift back to sleep. Keep in mind however, that it’s up to you to know when to stop drinking caffeine, alcohol or indulge in sweets and/or pre-bedtime meals. Sleepy Chocolate is a wonderful gift but it won’t cover for our choices.
Peppermint Oil 250mg
Very pleased with the purchase, was shipped with an ice pack at no additional cost which was nice. Pollen is potent and as high quality as I've had. Good texture and taste, leaves a sweet aftertaste. Will buy again :)
take to facilitate sleep. Very helplful to me.
I drink this everyday & think it gives me more energy plus helps with circulation. However, it has gotten too expensive & I may have to stop or find one cheaper.
Excellent product, and ingredients.
Aqua Biome, Omega-3, Maximum Strength

My daughter loves this product and it is our go-to product when she starts to feel respiratory discomfort.
Excellent vitamin ingredients, easy to swallow, clean fillers in my opinion. Excellent vitamin Company to buy from, excellent customer care.
