This product is highly effective to curb my afternoon cravings. The powder has a slightly sweet taste but mostly tastes like nothing, which was a lovely surprise. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who hopes to improve their digestion and curb their cravings.

I feel so much better! I have just re-ordered. I have been using Metavo for almost a month and in that short time my cravings are reduced, I am more energetic and my digestion is vastly improved. I feel great!

I add Metavo to my daily smoothies. It has a very neutral, unnoticeable taste and I noted it keeps me full for longer.

It’s been about a month since I started taking Metavo supplements. If you know me personally you probably know that I am a BABY when it comes to taking pills but overall I am loving both products! I am so happy I’ve tried this product and am loving the way it’s making me feel.


My product came very quickly from the time I ordered it. The capsules are very easy to swallow. I am really looking forward to the benefits that it provides!

Started taking this every morning for the past couple of weeks. It’s been really easy to incorporate in my daily routine. I definitely have more energy and it helps me get through my day. Would recommend!

Keeps me energized longer. And no bad after taste! I’m going to re-order to keep this up.

Shipping was extremely fast. Only a few days into taking this, but I feel great!
