I NEED to have protein supplementation in order to sustain a healthy life. I was noncompliant with this requirement until I discovered Profect. I am now compliant with my protein requirements. I look forward to it, in fact. Only thing is, I have to hide it from the kids. I do find that I tend to run out of steam during the day. I carry a few vials of Profect with me, in the car, in my purse, and in my laptop case. If I need a “boost” it’s easy for me to take care of that without much fuss. Thank you Protica!
