“clarity gives me that extra boost of healthy energy that helps me feel alert and reenergised for the long days of running a business and managing a family. On those days where you have to get up for early calls with New York, dash to the afternoon soccer game….and still be standing at the evening cocktail party…clarity/smart energy™ is my perfect healthy solution.”
