"We had been going through quite a crisis with my 81 year old Mother. She was told that previous week that she failed some competency tests with the doctor and was told she could no longer drive and would be tested for medication to stop her dementia. This was traumatic to say the least. She is very independent.
"After reading the literature I decided Mangosteen juice might be beneficial for my Mom's memory. Three days later my Mom called with a whole new attitude about life. She decided on her own that it might be time to move to a retirement community as she did not want us to worry about her.
"That was great! But that is not the best part. Today my brother and I took her for her follow-up visit with the doctor and asked to retest her.
"She passed with flying colors!
"The doctor was amazed. She refused to put my mother on any medication and signed a note to the DMV stating that she could continue driving. The joy we shared is not able to be expressed in words. She has her energy, a sound mind, and her attitude is renewed on life.
"My Mom told the doctor about Mangosteen juice. She was very supportive and told her to keep on taking it. By the way, the retirement community idea is put on hold." - Norma
"Mangosteen juice for depression is an area that I saw immediate (well almost - 1/2 hour) results with, in my ADHD/ODD, sleep deprived, unmotivated 17-year-old son.
"After refusing medications for depression, my son tried the Mangosteen juice as a taste test basically upon receiving our first order. Within a half hour he returned from his bedroom hide-out, energized, talkative and clearly uplifted (he even cleaned out my refrigerator and cooked dinner that night!). A couple hours later he indicated that he thought "this stuff" really helped.
"Yes it helps with depression... not just my son but several others that I have shared this with have remarked almost immediately (within 24 hours) that they felt uplifted, including a 23 year old recovering breast cancer winner that had stopped using anti-depressants due to the lack of feelings that was resulting from their use.
"That said, my son's 8 years of Ritalin use has been discontinued. He struggles at times, particularly when required to sit and read at length, however, he is not as faithful to using Mangosteen juice as he recognizes he needs to be at times. When he uses it consistently, he does better and openly admits to this.
"Motivation... he will not be breaking any academic records this year, however, due to dealing with his depression better, he now sleeps better, has greatly improved school attendance. He is consistently working out at the gym, eating better and generally feeling better.
"I strongly suggest that you give this a try with your child. Encourage consistency in using Mangosteen juice and base amounts on child's size. My son is a big boy (although he has lost 20 pounds since resuming a more active, healthy lifestyle), and takes an average 2-3 ounces each time he uses it, which is 2 or 3 times per day.
"Now keep in mind I didn't say this cures everything... the obsessive compulsive side of my son has had to slow him down on the juice a few times when he drank close to a whole bottle one day!" - Cathie
"... Last Saturday, January 8th, 2005, I met Ed at a men's fellowship breakfast at our church... I remarked about how the seasonal high cedar pollen in San Antonio is seriously affecting my allergies.
"He told me about the many all natural health qualities of mangosteen and the 43 xanthones contained within the rind, and suggested that I may want to try a bottle of [the original patented mangosteen juice] to see what beneficial effects it may have on my allergies, sleep patterns, and energy levels. I imediately said, "Sure, why not?"
"I decided to try it that day, and I obtained a bottle from Ed ... WOW! Was I quickly blessed by the quick results! I then learned that our pastor and his family are drinking mangosteen juice, with good results.
"The very first thing I noticed is that I was not feeling any allergic effects of Mountain Cedar, which for many years has bothered me in the late winter. Next, I noted my sleeping pattern had greatly improved. I seemed to sleep better, and in 4 days, I had lost four pounds.
I have also noticed that my energy level is much higher, and that I feel about ten years younger...not bad for a 64 year old! I am amazed and quite surprised with these very quick improvements that I am now experiencing.
"But next came the biggest surprise of all. I had not even mentioned my diabetes condition to Ed when we met. But, after speaking with my doctor on Thursday, I called Ed immediately to inquire if anyone suffering from diabetes had reported good results after drinking Mangosteen juice. He said that many instances of highly beneficial results have been reported to him by his friends and others suffering from diabetes, and also by doctors and health care practitioners, both personally and from their patients.
"Ed asked me why I had asked him about diabetes, and I then told him of my serious case of diabetes, and that my doctor had just called me to tell me of the very positive results of the semi-annual tests performed the day before.
"I explained to Ed that for the past 15 years I have suffered from diabetes and that at one time I took insulin four times daily. My doctor said, 'Paul, you are healed from diabetes.' I had never heard anything like that! Ever! I was actually rather shocked, as doctors usually say that diabetes will go 'into remission', but never say 'healed'.
"I cannot say with medical certainty that the Mangosteen juice is what brought about this wonderful change in my life, but I can say that drinking Mangosteen juice is the only change I have made in my diet and in my life.
"Inasmuch as I have also suffered several heart attacks and have suffered from congestive heart failure, as well as asthma, and high blood pressure, I am always looking for ways to improve my health and my life.
"The Mangosteen juice certainly seems to have done something wonderful for me because it is the only change that I have made in my life during the past week and what a difference that one simple change has made! And besides all that, I love the taste of the [the original patented mangosteen juice]!
"I believe this wonderful juice can help everyone I know, love, and come in contact with to enjoy a better life, and I cannot imagine anyone who knows about it keeping this wonderful mangosteen juice a secret! I certainly won't! I am telling all my family, and everyone I know and everyone I meet about it, and what it has done for me." - Paul
"... My husband was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes more than 10 years ago and always had trouble keeping his blood glucose level within the normal range, even with medications and watching his diet closely. He always checks his blood sugar first thing in the morning.
"After drinking mangosteen juice (1 oz. twice a day) for less than three weeks, he noticed that his blood sugar was considerably lower and well within the normal range in the mornings. He has been drinking it since first week in May and his sugar levels remain within the normal range.
"He still takes the medications, too, but is very pleased (as is his doctor) that it is under control having added mangosteen juice.
"I wish we had been drinking mangosteen juice in the years before we developed health problems (had it been available then, of course), but am so happy to have it now!" - Judy
