TESTIMONIALS

As a former professional Ballet dancer and a health conscious personal trainer, I’m very aware of how my body feels, my energy levels, and the direct effects of the fuel I put into my body.

Very shortly after taking Naomi’s “I AM Superman” blend, I can say that my mood and energy levels improved dramatically… that’s with a heavy schedule and advanced training regimen. It was easy to add to my morning routine, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Stefan, Vancouver


“Starting the day with ‘I am Superman’ always guarantees a boost of energy and knowing my nutritional needs are met gives me a boost of confidence to start the day. It’s one of the only supplements I have ever used where you feel the positive effects immediately. Without doubt one of the best superfood supplements on the planet ” – D. Knight MNLP GHR Harley Street

“I started taking the blend first thing every morning and felt great, definitely left me feeling like Superman!” Eliot Goodfellow – Monaco


“What I can say about the product is that the overall well-being feeling had improved and the intensity of my sleep. Furthermore, my energy level throughout the day lasted longer and practically removed the afternoon tiredness especially after lunch. During summer period we all sweat more and don’t really nourish our body enough with the right amount of nutrients so I think the superman blend really worked out well” Tim – Monaco
