After some time, Sue took the leap and joined the Solaris family.
"I truly believe Sue came in at the perfect time to save her
health and I commend her

had 3 goals in mind: 1.) to help her
digest the foods she
ate, 2.) regulate bowel movements, and 3.) support her
body with supplementation to help her
