The body depends on B6 to make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which affect both mood and feelings of happiness. Improved Vitamin B intake helps us sleep well and helps balance our hormones. increase our energy levels, clarity & overall mental function.
Whomever said that this tastes like cheese needs to be kicked...hard! This was by far the most disgusting thing I have gotten in a long while.
The little yellow flakes (AKA powder of death) smells horrible in the bag and I was very not wanting to try this. I tasted a bit on a spoon and while the texture and meltiness on my tongue was fine it was very sour tasteing, it tasted processed and while slightly cheesy, not good enough!
Being one to not leave something alone after one try I decided maybe it would taste okay in a food item (or at least masked well enough)... NOPE. I put this with rice, who dosnt like cheese and rice right? Tasted sour still and while it did mix in well and i could not feel it on my tongue so much the terrible taste was still there and I could not finish my food. I know it is supposed to be healthy and good for you and all that but there ARE healthy things that taste FAR better than this stuff!
