With a pill for everything today, I am still the parent who likes to find a more natural or supplement approach when possible. It takes a lot of research and then when you find a supplement that can help, how do you know which brands to trust? Rainbow Light has always provided safe and effective supplements and I have used these myself. They shared some tips with me that I wanted to pass on to you. I am not affiliated, I just felt so many could benefit from these I had to share.
