Mike Leaf holds a bachelor’s degree in physics and a master’s degree in nutrition.

This motivated him to spend endless hours on research for products and compounds that actually work.

He is one of our full-time researchers where he is dedicated to helping other desperate people out there looking for a safe solution to their health issues through supplements.
