My nurse friend just bought a case of this for me and said it has helped her with IBS. It is supposed to help boost the immune system, help heal muscles, help arthritis inflammation, etc. I'm not sure about this because I am the biggest skeptic ever. It tastes okay and I will try it. I have nothing to lose.

Be aware that this juice is full of high-sugar-content fruit juices...there is very little of the actual active ingredient, the rest is filler consisting of cheap apple/pear juice. A friend of mine who has IBS said this juice did nothing for her...her husband loves it, though.

Thanks Razzle. My nurse friend told me about the kind you describe. This one is supposed to be pure. I'm not sure. I have not researched it at all. I know she is really into natural healing though. Her son has autism and she has him on natural supplements/herbs.

Since it was given to you by someone it sounds like you have some trust in, maybe you should give it a try - cautiously. If you start to feel "funky" or ill, be sure to stop it immediately, though. I did some reading on it last night after reading your post CG, and saw that there were many claims of it helping, but I also did see things that make me believe it's just the latest "cure all".

If you do decide to try it, please be sure to post what you think of it!!!!

Hey Traveler,

Thanks for looking out for me. I know it's been around for a while because my old hair stylist drank it and said it helped her and that was three years ago. I don't think it's a cure all but it may help "some people." Although I haven't researched it, Ive talked to several people that it has helped and this is the only reason that I am giving it a try. Like I said, I am extremely skeptic and I'm actually not expecting much from it. It does taste pretty good though. It's peachy and kind of bitter, but I like it. We will see, I guess. The case I have was given to me. I don't think I could even afford it if I had to buy it.

Hey Cajun,, how you doing? I first found about this from someone who said it cured his diabiets. he talked me int signing up and takinga a case. It is like a pyramid or I forget what you call that kind of marketing but I never sold one case and got little $18 to $36 checks for months. It is so sweet tasting I couldn't stand to drink it myself. doesn't make sense how this could have helped diabetes.??

i think the magical ingredenient is supposed tt be MANGOSTEEN. and that has been recommended for lyme by a few people.

Oe thing is the bottles are awsome. I have one bottle left that I never opened and am keeping it just for the glass bottle.
maybe I will give it a try this week to see how it works.

It's hard to tell with me because I am on cortizone still and pain pills.

Hey bucci,

I am definitey not going to sell it. No way. To be honest, I seriously don't think it's that great to even attempt to sell. I mean, this drink would REALLY have to make me feel better for me to even consider that and I just can't see it doing that much. I guess some things work for some people and not for others. It says it helps with inflammation but my steroids are not helping much with that. I don't know. Can you tell I'm skeptic? lol. It's free, so I'll give it a try. I think it's pretty expensive to buy. Oh, and I don't find it sweet at all. I find it more tangy/bitter than sweet. Mine tastes like peaches and....what's that purple fruit that tastes like a peach? I can't remember.

I haven't tried XANGO, but drank MONAVIE for awhile (my brother was / is hooked into it). I didn't like that it wasn't organic and their mantra was to discredit organic when it was brought up. I would love to try, ZAMU, that is sort of the same, but said to be organic.

I have often wondered about the claims made by these companies that their drinks are 'cure alls'. Perhaps they are for those who do not already consume a healthy diet and by consuming these drinks they are now more balanced or getting nutrients they weren't before - that would make anyone feel better I would think.

I did the Xango route for a month, the pure stuff. Pricey and pretty ucccky I thought.

Did not see any improvement whatsoever for me.
