Nancy: I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 10 years and though I have always tried to fight this disease naturally, after a bad flare up a couple years ago, which damaged both knees significantly and put me onto a cane. I was about to give in and go on the Methotrexate that my Dr. had been insistent on my taking.
About that time, a friend told me that her sister had relief from her RA pain by using the mangosteen and minerals product so I decided to try just one more thing before giving in. I began taking 2 oz of the mangosteen and minerals a day in April 2010. I noticed my hair and nails growing thicker, but it was not taking away the severe pain and inflammation in my knees and other joints. By this point I had purchased a lift chair as I could no longer get up off my couch and had gotten a prescription for a walker because my cane wasn't helping enough.
I was in so much pain and had no more quality of life. I was sleeping 10 hours or more every night, and during the day I either sat at my computer or on my lift chair. I could no longer cook or clean my house, and was eating cereal, sandwiches or ordering take out for my meals. I was about to give up on it when my friend told me to increase my dose to 4 oz a day, which I did in Jan 2011, and that is when I began to notice changes. After 3 weeks I began dreaming, which was exciting to me because I also suffered from sleep apnea which prevented me from getting into a deep REM sleep, keeping me in a constant tired state.
I was having nights that I did not wake until morning which hadn't happened in many years. I woke up refreshed after only 8 hours,started having a lot more energy, and stopped falling asleep everywhere like an old woman (I'm 50). It took a couple more weeks and I began experiencing a lot of relief of the pain and inflammation in my knees.
The pain level was about as low as I had previously experienced during the summer when I had a steroid shot injected into each knee. However, the relief from those shots only lasted about 4 weeks, but this relief has sustained now for about 2 months.....plus I didn't have to endure a needle!! I just drink this great tasting liquid...2oz in the morning and 2oz later in the day. I have also had a decrease in pain in all of my joints and have been feeling wonderful!!
The mangosteen and minerals product has given me my life back and I am confident that as time goes on I will just continue to get better.

Lee Anne: “I have been taking the mangosteen and mineral product now for about 8 weeks. After 1 week, my rheumotoid arthritis was so much better in my knees, that I didn’t need to takes steps 1 step at a time.”

Ken & Debbie: “Hello, we are Ken and Debbie from a small town in north Alabama called Grant. Both of us have been on the minerals and mangosteen for about nine weeks now and have had unbelievable results for the health problems that we eachhave.” …Ken, also, has multiple health problems. Ken has rheumatoid arthritis, ankyalosing spondalitus, osteo arthritis, and osteoporosis. These diseases put Ken in a wheelchair 4 years ago. Ken has had 37 surgeries because of these diseases. The ankyalosing spondalitus totally fused his neck when he was 38 years old, forced him out of the work force, and put him on total disability. Ken’s daily regimen included 11 different medications. One of those 11 medications included 180 oxycodone pain pills a month to help him to be able to walk around and deal with the horrible pain that he experienced on a daily basis. He was also on a dangerous cancer medication that is being used to help treat rheumatoid arthritis called methotrexate. The methotrexate was a required medication for him to be able to take another arthritis treatment called Remicade. This is an IV that Ken would receive every 6 week! s to help control the pain and stiffness from his arthritic diseases. Ken was also on a blood thinner called Coumadin which is nothing more than rat poison. He had to go every six weeks and have blood drawn because of the high risk of all of these drugs killing his liver and other body organs. Ken started the mineral and mangosteen program about nine weeks ago and after about two weeks on the program he became totally pain free and drug free!”

Mary: “I was taking the following medications: Fosamax for osteoporosis in my legs-1 pill a week Methrexate 5mg. - 4 pills at once, one time a week. Folic Acid - 1 pill every day for arthritis. None of this was helping me, until I started taking the minerals and mangosteen. I have quit all of the medicines, except for the Fosamax. I initially started taking Vemma in my orange juice once a day and in two weeks, I could see a lot of difference in the way I felt. All of my pain was just about gone. Every day I started feeling better and I now I am not in any pain at all.My hands were so bad I would close my hands and my fingers would close and lock, I would have to take each hand & pull my fingers open, and they had so much pain I wanted to cry. But now I have taken most of the 4 bottles of the minerals and mangosteen for two months and I am feeling great, no pain at all. Believe me, I know what pain is and I had enough of it, and I am so happy to be pain free so far. I will always take it.”

Rita: “Earlier this year I was suffering from extreme pain. When I could no longer take it, I went to my doctor, who ran several tests and took x-rays. I was diagnosed with arthritis. It manifested in my upper and lower back and my right hip. There were days that I could not even stand up when I got out of bed because my hip would lock up and I could not stand up straight. The doctor put me on 1800 mg of Neurotin and 200 mg of Celebrex a day but the pain persisted. A friend of mine from childhood had suggested that I try the mangosteen and minerals product. I was reluctant and kept putting him off. Finally after about 4 months, the pain was so bad, even though I was taking the medicine, I decided to try the mangosteen and minerals. I also have a very active lifestyle and was always tired and felt run down. After taking the mangosteen and minerals energy drink for one week, I stopped taking the Neurotin and Celebrex and the pain has been gone for almost 9 weeks and my energy level has increased! I am confident that the mangosteen and mineral energy drink was the cause. Now I recommend it to everyone I know!”
Paulette: “I just wanted to report that I think the mangosteen and minerals are really helping my arthritic knees. I've been taking about 6 oz per day (sometimes I miss a dose or 2) for around a month. Saturday we had to go to a wedding and my vanity set in. I really wanted to wear heals which normally I cannot at all without horrible pain and limping. I put them on and felt great the entire wedding and most of the reception dancing. I only took off the heals cause my feet hurt ... my knees were fine!
I haven't changed anything in my routine except adding the mangosteen and minerals. I had cortisone shots in both knees in July and my doc and I discussed knee replacement when I couldn't stand the pain any more. Hopefully this will continue and that surgery can be held off for many years.”
