Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

Some studies have show that this can be helpful. And while this has not been proven, since epimag is not expensive, it probably will not hurt anything.

Since you have not had any problems in three years I do not see anything wrong with you continuing taking it.

Does this make sense to you?
