 “My doctor recommended that I try these Laminine® capsules, so I started taking 2 in the am and 2 in the early evening. I just went about my day as normal and a noticed that when it was time to eat, I wasn’t hungry. The second weekend, I visited my cousin and forgot to bring them and I noticed that I wanted to eat the whole day. On Monday, I started taking them again and the cravings went away almost instantly. I also noticed that I wanted to go to bed early and woke up refreshed in the morning.” - Kristen.
