    Essential Defense

    My doctor prescribed Essential Defense by Metagenics to strengthen my immune system when I had a severe respiratory infection. Now it is my first line of defense when I feel a cold or sore throat coming on.


      Easy to take, strengthened my immune system to fight off a cold virus.


      No dislikes.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
