This is truly your body’s own wonder drug and making sure you create as much as you can, quite possibly will: · Lower your blood pressure · Improve your circulation · Delay the onset/progression of atherosclerosis · Reduce the likelihood (and can prevent) a heart attack or stroke

I have long been a fan of Karuna creator, Angel Zeng. We've become friends and I have the utmost respect for her not only as just being a wonderful human, but also being the most steadfast person I have ever known to create and remain consistent in her product formula. Hers is the only commercial beverage I stand behind, as it offers such an incredible nutritional boost supporting a strong immune system and healthy gut.
