Jan, this sounds great!
I just thought that you might like to know that my husband just had his yearly blood work and the doctor was thrilled with all of the results!!!
He has been walking proof that you can help yourself, too.
He went from 5 shots of insulin a day to one pill a day years ago and he is still going strong!!!

Hugs~

I could just eat a huge bowl of this now. I am starting a cold and could do with the vitamon boost from the berries.
