I have a lot of testimonials concerning the use of COGNITO Micronutrient Powder. Children who are malnourished have regained their health. Children who couldn’t stand on their own were able to stand and also walk. Children who were able to overcome the delayed IQ impairment. Children with a loss of appetite were able to overcome their health challenges and much more. Many mothers have shown appreciation for introducing them to COGNITO micronutrient powder because their children recover quickly through its use.
I recommend COGNITO Micronutrient Powder to all children in Akwa Ibom State.
