How often should I take JIVA?

How long will JIVA take to work?
Most people will begin to feel energized one-half hour after intake of JIVA. At 30 days you should see significant results in your well-being.
Will JIVA work even if I don't change my diet or exercise habits?
JIVA is a potent immune support but is not a "miracle pill."
