For one, I do not take Xango, all thew juices I get at my local health food store, they carry all four. The below is an article I have written, and I wanted it to be know that at PubMet (I think that's the name of the site) they have plenty of scientific research on Mangosteen. Anyways, here is the below article which I have written to help people. Also, the juices AREN'T worth $39, YOUR RIGHT, it's a rip off. But then again, I get mine at the store for only $20. So go figure.
Four Amazing Juices, Dozens of Amazing Cures
When you have someone come up to you and tell you that they know of a juice that is so spectacular and amazing that it can cure disease, we all raise an eye brow or two. I mean, really, how could mere juice from fruit help our health? Well, here's the shocking truth, IT CAN! And not just one juice, but rather four! What are these wonderful juices you ask? They are Mangosteen, Acai, Goji, and Noni. Maybe you've heard of these juices, maybe not. I personally have been taking them and let me tell you, they are great. Now, I'm a pretty healthy person, so I have't experienced any miraculous events happen because of them. However the people I meet and talk to who have taken them when sick and seen the results, is amazing. My friend Marilyn is an avid supporter of Goji juice and sings its praises. When I first decided to write this article, I thought for sure it would be short. However, when I researched online for information on these juices, I came back with a staggering amount of info! So, let me start from the beginning.
The Acai berry grows on the majestic palm tree°¶s in the flood plains of the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. The fruit has a great flavor and is enjoyable to consume. The people in the Amazon have consumed this amazing berry for hundreds of years and have prospered greatly from it. The healing powers of the fruit are legendary there. This fruit has received so much attention and research that it has been featured in the media on such shows and newspapers as "The Oprah Winfrey Show", "Today Show", "MSNBC News", "ABC News", "University of Florida News", "Sports Illustrated for Women", "Good Morning America", "Vogue", "Health Science Institute°®, "The Wall Street Journal", "Men's Journal", "American Curves", and "The London Times". The London Times was quoted as saying, "Acai has the nutritional content that makes other fruits blush with inadequacy." Oprah Winfrey said, "This Little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world." ABC News said, "There's a miracle berry that can help you live longer and healthier and chances are you've never heard of it. It's called acai and it could help you ward off Cancer, protect your heart, even prevent Alzheimer's disease, according to some research." Sports Illustrated for Women said, "Acai has 30 times the amount of antioxidants of red wine and contains essential fatty acids and vitamin C and E, all of which help to reduce Cholesterol and prevent Cancer and Heart disease." The Acai berry has been reported to be the #1 super-food in the world by Dr. Nicholas Perricone! Acai berries contain high levels of antioxidants (18, 500 on the ORAC scale), Omega Fatty Acids (healthy fats), Iron, Amino Acids, Fiber, and many other vitamins and nutrients. But the question is, what do the doctors have to say about this berry? "Any juice blend rich in Acai fruit would help people meet their daily antioxidant requirements from food," said Dr. Alexander G. Schauss. Dr. Julian Whitaker says, "Unlike other juices, most of acai's calories come not from Sugar but from healthful omega-6 and omega-9 fats." "Studies have shown that this little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world!" says Dr. Nicholas Perricone. Dr. Katherine Crafton says, "It's a leading source of anthocyanins, which is a natural anti-inflammatory agent." "The nutrients that are found in there are really hard to duplicate in anything else," says Dr. Scott Crafton. Doctors Pam Flowers, Barnett Meltzer, and Greg Malakoff all believe in Acai's benefits. These berries are so amazing, they could possibly cure Cancer! Don°¶t believe me? On January 12, 2006 the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry reported on a study showed extracts of the Acai berry triggered a self-destruct response in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells tested! The Brazilian Acai berry is known to have the following properties: Antioxidant, Antibacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Antimutagenic, and Strengthen Cardiovascular System. The Amazon Acai berry itself has 10 times the antioxidants of grapes, and twice the antioxidants of blueberries. The Brazilian Acai berry is considered to have the best nutritional value of any fruit on earth! Acai berries contain very high amounts of essential fatty acids and omegas, proven to lower LDL and maintain HDL cholesterol levels. They also contain a remarkable concentration of antioxidants to help combat premature aging. Acai Berry is a dense source of a particular class of flavonoids called anthocyanins. Acai berries are also an excellent source of dietary fiber! Acai berries contain natural vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant to protect against aging. There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of testimonials of people who drank Acai and saw miraculous results. People saw degenerative arthritis that they had had for over 20 years simply leave them before they had finished their first bottle of the fruit juice. Fibromyalgia, burstis, compressed disks, depression, and leaky heart valves went away. One woman had cholesterol of 295. Tried for 5 years to reduce it but couldn't, than after only 5 weeks of Acai, her cholesterol dropped 62 points to 233! Sciatic pain has been reported to go away as well. Bad knees, frozen shoulders, carpal tunnel, TMJ, acid reflux, rosacea, Parkinsons, Scoliosis, chronic fatigue, Pneumonia, joint pain, and headaches all reported by people to disappear! One woman was told she had an infection in her tooth and was going to need a root canal in two weeks. In that time she drank Acai juice and when she came back, the infection the dentist said was gone. The age and Liver spots on the skin of elderly had vanished on some users after drinking Acai for some time. One woman reported that her eye floaters went away after drinking the berry! Post polio, swelling, ankle pain, low energy, and blood pressure were all corrected. One woman got rid of an infection in her tooth by rinsing with the Acai. Graves disease, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, ADHD, OCD, CAPD, WLD, VPD, and SID were all helped by drinking Acai juice. As you can see, this fruit lives up to its legend.
The Mangosteen fruit from Southwest Asia is known as the "Queen of Fruits". For hundreds of years, the people there have used the Mangosteen fruit to improve their health. Lately, Mangosteen has been big in the news! It°¶s been on FOX News, had an article done on it in Shape Magazine, been mentioned in Sports Illustrated, had article done in Los Angeles Times, and even had an article done on it by The New York Times! Breakthroughs Health magazine did an entire issue on the Mangosteen fruit! Reader's Digest did a piece on the fruit as well! Mangosteen recently got in the news when it was learned that Drew Brees the quarterback for the New Orleans Saints took a glass of Mangosteen ever night at 9 p.m. The latest in scientific research shows Mangosteen contains a class of naturally occurring polyphenolic compounds known as xanthones. Xanthones provide beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and thrombosis. Xanthones also demonstrate especially powerful antioxidant properties. These antioxidants, known as Xanthones, have properties which help to heal cells damaged by free radicals, slow aging, and ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration. According to research reported in professional journals such as Free Radical Research and the Journal of Pharmacology, these amazing Xanthones have a remarkably beneficial effect on cardiovascular health and are also naturally antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. Xanthones are among the most powerful antioxidants to be found in nature. The rind of the Mangosteen contains at least 40 Xanthones, 6 of which have been found to be effective in breast cancer, stomach cancer, and more. Many of the other health benefits of Mangosteen can be expressed in terms of how they act against various serious ailments...
anti-fatigue, anti-obesity, anti-depression, anti-anxiety, anti-Alzheimer°¶s, anti-Parkinsonism (Parkinson's Disease), anti-allergenic, anti-seborrheic (skin disease), anti-glaucoma (eye disease), anti-pyretic (anti-fever), anti-diarrhea, anti-periodontic (gum disease), anti-pain (such as dental pain), anti-neuralgia (nerve pain), anti-arthritis, anti-inflammatory (act as cox-2 inhibitor like Vioxx and Celebrex, but without the deadly side-effects), and anti-ulcer (such as ulcers of the stomach, mouth, small bowel, large bowel). So what have people experienced from drinking Mangosteen? Well, the hundreds of testimonials say it better than I can, but I°¶ll try my best to give you the overview. People have shared their stories of tumors shrinking, high blood pressure and hypertension lowering, cancers being cured, Diabetes being cured and virtually almost ever other condition. Remember, this is not what I am saying is happening to these people, this is what the people themselves said happened. People also reported losing unwanted weight while on mangosteen. Dr. Albert Miller, MD, a family physician, states that mangosteen juice is likely to be the single most powerful prevention supplement available today. Dr. Kenneth J. Finsand, MD, says that he had never encountered a natural fruit so powerful as the mangosteen and that he believes most of the ailments of man can be reversed by this simple fruit. He said, "In the near-30 years I have been in practice nothing has changed the lives of my patients or me like Mangosteen Juice. It has blessed the lives of so many. I feel like I am in the health ministry!" Dr. Sam Walters, N.M.D, says, "If you know what I know you will never leave home without a glass of mangosteen juice." Other doctors such as Dr. Karolynn Echols (MD), Dr. Robert C. Stone, and Dr. Enrique Martinez (MD) sing its praises. Dr. Bruce Wilkin, MD, calls Mangosteen, "...One of the greatest medical discoveries of all time." "Many patients have been able to taper their medications while on the mangosteen," says Dr. Armando de Guzman, MD. Dr. Gil Alvarado says, "The benefits mangosteen offers to people are monumental, and I'm immensely grateful I have discovered it for my clients." "Mangosteen provides powerful support for every organ system in the human body. This fact is being confirmed on a daily basis by clinical experience," says Dr. J. Frederic Templeman, MD. Dr James Duke worked for 35 years for the USDA, and also worked for the University of Maryland. He listed over 138 mind-boggling Mangosteen properties and health benefits. Interestingly enough, one of the leading mangosteen researchers (a professor in Asia) was recently recruited by Pfizer and is no longer allowed to even discuss his research on the mangosteen because of a non-disclosure agreement. Why would a major pharmaceutical company be interested in the Mangosteen fruit?
The Goji berry is from the Himalayas in Tibet and Mongolia. The Himalayan Goji berry has been eaten locally in the region for centuries, and is celebrated in festivals. The Himalayan Goji berry is nicknamed "The Happy Berry" because of the sense of well-being it is said to give. The native people in the mountain regions who ate Goji berries in their normal diet enjoyed remarkable health and longevity. The average woman in the Hunza tribe lives to be 100 years of age! Arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and depression are totally unknown to the Hunza people. The question that comes to mind is, what do doctors have to say about this amazing fruit? The answer, a lot! "This tiny fruit revealed itself to quite possibly the most nutritionally dense food on earth!" says Dr. Mindell. Dr. Sandra Lee Boice, MS, PhD, says "In the 25 years I've worked in the wellness industry, I've never seen greater benefits than I have with Goji juice." Dr. Ron Friedman, MD, says "Goji juice is the cornerstone to health and vitality." Dr. Peter Lazarnick said, "After 27 years of searching, I've finally found something that is having real and profound benefits on my patients' health. I have complete faith in the efficaciousness of goji juice, and I am looking forward to helping the quality of people's lives everywhere through the dissemination of discovery." Dr. Marc Westaway and Dr. Carlos Orozco, BS, MS, PhD, talk openly of the amazing benefits of Goji juice. Dr. Orozco has witnessed first hand patients with cancer, after taking Goji, had their cancers start to leave them. Dr. Eddie Rettstatt says that Goji juice puts an end to lifelong allergies. Dr. Jerry Shaw says, "Goji juice °s an elixir for the ages!" Dr. Matthew Silver, MD, (Family Practice physician) says, "After more than 30 years of investigating nutritional products for my own use as well as for the use of my patients and others, I recently discovered goji juice. I have found that it produces more and faster benefits than any other product I have ever used or recommended." "The results I have seen with Goji juice are nothing short of astonishing!" says Dr. Marc Westaway, MD. Dr. F.E. Nicley, MD, accredits Goji juice for eliminating the ill effects of radiation therapy. Dr. David Bridgman says, "I believe that if goji juice can be placed in the hands of people worldwide, it will have a more profound effect on world health than any other substance I have ever seen." With all this attention and praise from mainstream medical doctors, it makes sense that Goji has been featured much in the media. Women's World magazine headline for Goji was, "Add 20 years to your life!" In Touch magazine talked of how Goji makes you look younger. Speciality Food magazine said it was one of the most nutritiously dense foods around. Chicago Wellness magazine showed Dr. Mindell talking openly about Goji. Kevin Trudeau °'s Monthly Natural Cures Newsletter did an article on how healthy Goji was for the body. Australian Harper's Bazaar talked about the benefits on the Goji fruit. The Los Angeles Times ran an article Goji possibly having the ability to fight Cancer. KITV-4 News Report, Hawaii, talked about Goj's ability to prevent Macular Degeneration. City View magazine, Breakthroughs in Health magazine, and Chiropractic Wellness and Fitness magazine all spoke of Goji°¶s amazing benefits. Goji was featured on ABC News with Dr. Mindell, also on NBC TODAY show where they talked about how it fights off Depression and Cancer and may prevent aging. MTV Cribs showed the fridges of two Hollywood stars and found Goji juice in their fridges! Australian Madison magazine talked about how much antioxidants were packed into the tiny berries. It was also featured on MSNBC. Even with all the publicity this amazing fruit is getting, you still haven't heard of it till now. You've heard the doctors; you've heard the news, what else is there? Well, hundreds of user testimonials, that's what. I can't share them all, only to give the basics of what they say. One story relates how a girl had slipped into a coma. Her father told the doctors to find a way to get the Goji juice in her, so after reading the literature the doctor and staff gave Goji juice to the girl intravenously. In one day she had woken up and the next day afterwards she was talking again. Many testimonials reported how people with severe arthritis and osteoarthritis had their pain disappear within a couple days of using the juice. One woman after she started drinking Goji had her brain tumor stop growing. Lots of users talked of how their Cholesterol dropped from 242 to 187. Others reported drops of 76 points, and 80 and over. Family members with Alzheimer's saw their disease melt away or improve from the amazing juice. Another person who had a root canal and was told she would have severe pain, drank her Goji and suffered no pain whatsoever. It°¶s helped with Dry Eye, Constipation, the Immune system, Joints, Kidney problems, Liver problems, and even Leukemia! For women, you'll be glad to hear that it helps with the strengthening of the bones and treating and the pain and preventing Osteoporosis. It helped one army soldier who helped in the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina to not get Mercury or Lead poisoning. It's helped people cure their Parkinson°¶s disease, Restless Legs, and manage their pH levels. It°¶s helped with stroke victims, and with dealing with stress. It's also helped people with Vitamin B-12 deficiencies. Goji also gives back the energy you have lost and keeps you going through the day.Goji has also helped people with weight loss and doctors have seen the results, one woman lost 27 pounds in three months and another lost 15 pounds in two months. One 48 yr old woman had cancer of the Liver and by drinking Goji found it had vanished. Her Breast Cancer tumor shrunk as well. Women with varicose veins also saw them disappear. People with breathing problems, cured. A 72 yr old woman reported that after only one day on Goji, he knee pain had completely disappeared. Even a 50 yr old man reported that his hair had started to re-grow! Memory Problems have been reported to be cured by drinking the juice. Even high blood pressure and hypertension have been reported to be cured by Goji. One man who had a blood pressure of 136/80, after six months of drinking Goji saw it drop to 114/74. One woman with a blood pressure of 150/90, had it drop in three months to 120/80. One 81 yr old woman had her blood pressure drop to 122/58. Another man had his drop from 190/100 to 128/80. One of the most impressive recommendations of Goji is by Nine-time Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Lewis who said, "As a professional athlete, my very livelihood depends upon being in the very best physical health possible. That's why I choose to use a cutting-edge, anti-aging and wellness product like Goji juice." Even an 8 yr old girl felt more energy and happiness from drinking Goji juice every day. Not only that, but registered nurses support the drink too. The Goji fruit is now being investigated as a food that may be capable of reducing the incidence of cancer, and also as a means of halting or reversing the growth of cancers. The Lycium plant and Goji berries have a long history of traditional medicinal use in China, both as a general, energy restoring tonic and also to cure a wide range of ailments from skin rashes and eyesight problems to diabetes. It's used for hypertension (high blood pressure); fever; malaria; and cancer. It's also used for improving circulation; strengthening muscles; erectile dysfunction; dizziness; and tinnitus. For many years Goji berries have been used in China for the treatment of adult-onset diabetes. They are said to help balance blood Sugar and insulin response. In test-tube studies, a unique polysaccharide (a complex sugar) isolated from the Goji berry has been shown to have anti-cancer effects. Tibetan Goji berries are now undergoing intense scrutiny as a cancer drug in Mongolia, China, Japan and Switzerland. Goji also shows some immune-enhancing properties. Four of the polysaccharides discovered in Goji berries have not been found in any other fruit. Goji berries contain 500 times more Vitamin C per gram than oranges, and are third only to the South American camu camu berry and the Australian billygoat plum as the richest source of Vitamin C on earth. The ORAC value of the Goji berry is said to be 25,300 - compared to 5,700 for prunes and 890 for broccoli and 750 for oranges. In Asia, Goji berries are the premier "brain tonic". The fruit contains betaine which the body can convert into choline, a substance that is said to enhance memory. This fruit is positively amazing, but before we move onto our next and last fruit, I want to leave with you the following. There is a story, in 1678 a man by the name of Li Ching-Yuen was born. At 50 years old, he was hiking when he came across an old man, the much older man could out walk him and was very much youthful in activities. Li asked the old man what his secret was and the man told him that if he ate a handful of Goji berries every day, he would find a new standard of health. So Li did as the old man said and continued to do so until the day he died. Now here comes the amazing part, he died in 1930. Now if you didn't catch this, he was born in 1678, and died in 1930. He was said to have lived to be 252 years of age! Not only that, but there is also a legend of a Tibetan scholar who lived to be 500 years old from eating Goji berries, of coarse, these story's can't be verified or proved true and are most likely dramatized, but they do attest to the fact that Goji is regarded highly for it's longevity effect on the body.
The Noni fruit is our next and final fruit of discussion. Grown in Hawaii or Tahititi, natives there have used the fruit for thousands of years. The benefits of Noni are: increasing energy, lessening allergy symptoms, improving asthma, losing weight, improving arthritis and diabetes, decreasing pain (including headache pain) and to lessen symptoms of cancer, Fibromyalgia, lower blood pressure, lower High Cholesterol, multiple sclerosis and stroke. It has been discovered that Noni is among the world's highest source of cellular rejuvenating enzymes which strengthen the immune system. As a result of its beneficial affect on the body's immune system it causes a significant regeneration of the body's cells and it has been recently recognized as an anti-aging treatment. Research at the University of Hawaii finds that Noni acts as a chelating agent, which creates a biochemical balance in the body expelling toxins and maintaining healthy cell structure at basic levels. Further research conducted on mice at the same university finds that Noni seems to help the body's immune system perform better. These documented medical case histories are indeed astounding and with the release of these findings, a Federal Grant was given to the University of Hawaii to further conduct research on Noni as a possible cure for cancer! As for how many doctors believe in Noni, the number keeps rising. Dr. Maria Odegbaro, MD, says, "In my experience with different natural products, NONI tops them all! Patients are faxing in their testimonials everyday. They are reporting results of relief from a variety of conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, persistent coughs, asthma, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, and arthritis to name a few. I would recommend NONI to anyone. Even those who are healthy for a general health tonic. An ounce of prevention is worth a TON of treatments!" Dr. Bryant Bloss, orthopedic surgeon certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, said, "I have used noni juice on seventy of my patients. Fifteen of my patients with chronic back pain found that noni completely relieved their pain. Eight other patients had knee pain from osteoarthritis until noni made their pain virtually disappear. Several of my patients with type II diabetes lowered their blood Sugar with noni juice. Noni juice has been very effective for the majority of my patients°KNoni juice has improved not only my life, but the lives of many of my patients." "Some of the best results I've seen with noni juice were in patients with inflammation problems such as arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, or carpal tunnel. In our culture, the kind of diet we eat makes it easy for our bodies to turn on the inflammatory process. Noni is incredible because it offers help to people who could not be helped by traditional medical science. Instead of giving people the standard vitamin and mineral supplements, we can help their bodies reach another level of cellular and molecular regulation. This product is so helpful to so many that I strongly encourage you to try it and let the product speak for itself. I'd be willing to bet that you'll be glad you did!" says Dr. Steven M. Hall, M.D. (board certified in family practice). Pharmacist - Allan Bailey says, "Noni juice should be included as a part of everybody°¶s daily nutrition because it helps us absorb essential nutrients from our diets and supplements. Noni is the missing piece of the health puzzle." Dr. Sam Kolodney has said, "Drinking noni juice has strengthened my entire body. It helps wake me in the morning after my son has kept me up most of the night. With noni my eyes open right up and I'm ready for the day. Noni even cured my athlete's foot. Noni has been great benefit to my patients with arthritis. After three weeks on noni, one women's arthritic pain completely went away. Another man had such severe arthritis he couldn't even pick up a pen, but after a month on noni he was able to grasp objects easily again. Noni juice is the only holistic health product I use in my practice. There are few products that are as generally beneficial as noni--that's why I recommend it. Noni helps you body generate life force and revives your body's natural ability to heal itself." "One of my patients was suffering from kidney cancer. She had been given only two weeks to live. Within that two-week period, she took noni juice and it cleared up her lung lesions. That was back in November (1996) and she is still with us. (Another patient of mine) After being on noni for three days, she was able to throw her cane away, get up from a sofa, and run most of the way across the room without pain...One woman's blood pressure was 170/100 and we could not budge it. After two months on noni, it's 130/80," says Dr. Mona Harrison. Dr. Richard Picks said, "Noni saves our bodies by giving us the nutrients we need.°® Dr. Delbert Hatton, D.C., says, "I began recommending noni to my patients last fall. Since then I have had nothing but success with it. The most amazing situation I know of is a woman with AIDS. Since she has been drinking noni, her T-cell count has gone from 169 to 400 and her symptoms have stabilized. I also have a relative with lung cancer whose tumors have decreased in size since he's been taking noni...I have seen incredible results among my patients and others who have used noni. I would recommend noni to anyone with any kind of health problem." Even Dentists recommend Noni juice! Dentist Dr. Robert L. Bodin said, "I think that you should try Noni yourself and see if it will help you the way it has helped so many other people that I personally know. It has worked wonders for me." Search for testimonials about Noni, and you will find more than a lot. Women with Breast Cancer reported that they were totally cured by drinking the juice, blood pressure was reported to be lowered, cholesterol improved, energy increased, better sleep gotten, pain and stiffness gone, neck pain relieved, relief from back pain, snoring stopped, shoulder pain gone. Hypertension and high blood pressure normalized, Gout gone, Psoriasis gone, and arthritis pain completely gone. Registered nurses as well as doctors applaud Noni's healing abilities. According to research completed by Dr. Neil Solomon M.D., Ph.D., 78% of over 10,000 people surveyed received healthful benefits from catastrophic disease states, simply by consuming Noni on a regular daily basis.
Now after reading all this information on the four amazing fruits, your probably ready to jump into the car and race to your local health food store right now! I know I was when I first read it, but than I had to remind myself I already had a bottle of each, so I raced to my fridge for a drink. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get these fruits in whole since they are so delicate, you can however get all the benefits by getting them in liquid form at the health food store. Almost all of them carry them. So rush down to Jimbo's, or Henry's, or Whole Food Markets and ask for these products. You won't be sorry that you did. Until next time, Stay Healthy!
