mangosteen juice
    #4603954 - 08/31/05 03:56 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

so I have to tell you guys about this juice. I went to the health store and this lady gave me a sample of some mangosteen juice like sold here - http://www.healthsuperstore.com/products/xango.aspx
I gotta say that shit is GOOD! and it's supposed to be ultra super good for you too.. packed full of antioxidants and nutrients. One shot of that stuff and I was like super charged for the rest of the day. no I don't work for xanga or any mangosteen places (but I wish I did) and this isn't spam. just some really good, really healthy juice. It's expensive though. But not anymore than what you probably pay for gas in a couple days. And gas isn't full of powerful antioxidants. :wink: I had never heard of a mangosteen fruit before, but I like their juice!

Xango!

kind of reminds me of noni juice. noni fruit is super healthy except it just doen't smell or taste very good..
noni smells like rotten pussy though.

another good one is that pom juice. pomegranate juice, it's supposed to have ALOT of antioxidants. a little chart of how much it contains came with it..it was surprising.

that mangosteen juice is kind of expensive though.

yeah I've had noni.. supposed to be real good but tastes like crap like you said
actually I see that with this mangosteen juice they mix it with grape, strawberry, apple, blueberry, and various other fruits. So that can account for the mouth-watering goodness. Yeah I think at the store they were selling it for $40 a bottle, but that should last you like a month or more. Fuel for the body. Some people spend more than that on their cars in a day.
pomegranate juice is also really good too. That POM stuff you can get at the grocery store is pretty cheap (compared to mangosteen) and also has tons of antioxidants and nutrients. the poor mans mangosteen.

coffee is just bad for you in general. weakens the heart, increases blood pressure, caffeine is a diuretic (not the good kind).. I don't know any good facts about coffee except that it wakes some people up (not everyone) and even then it's a false wakening as you usually crash later on in the day. Some people have a reverse tolerance to caffeine.. it makes them tired. Coffee probably contributes to gall stones and kidney and liver and heart problems too.

I wouldn't go that far. It reduces the risk of heart disease (although it raises blood pressure at the same time). It also prevents gallstones.

I'd say the risks outweigh the benefits:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee#Benefits
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee#Risks

BTW, what do you mean by the "good kind" of diuretic? A diuretic is something that makes you piss a lot-- I wasn't aware there were different types.

It is expensive.. but I highly recommend it. I'd get a bottle if I had the money, and I don't usually buy expensive things like that cause I am poor. But this is worth the money imo. Sure you could go to africa or whatever and squeeze some mangosteens yourself but then it would probably end up costing more than 40 bucks and you'd probably get bit by a snake. People spend thousands of dollars putting rims on their car, and buying crap that they will never need.. and they go out and shovel cheap, processed crap into their bodies. Me personally, I'd rather drive nothing or a bolty rust bucket and eat whole, natural foods and $40 bottles of mangosteen. Who cares how pimp my car is when my body is turning to shit?

Shit people will spend $60 on a bottle of liquor that destroys their brain and liver, and drink it all in one night.

This does like... the opposite. So I think it's a good investment.

There are diuretics that cleanse and hydrate the urinary system as they pass through, i.e- water, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, etc. These are cleaning the toxins out of the system, and that's what you are pissing out mostly, along with a lot of water. If you're drinking tons of water and cranberry juice.. you are gonna piss A LOT, but you are not going to be dehydrated. Pissing clear a lot is a sign of proper hydration.

And then there are diuretics that just drain the existing water out of your system - caffiene, alcohol. These aren't hydrating or cleansing anything.. they are just sucking water out of you.. DEhydrating you. You'll piss a lot, and it will probably be those deep, dark yellow piss that is sure sign you are pissing away all your hydration and nutrients.

I don't really have major problems with coffee, I just like to talk shit about it since so many people think it's god :wink: I don't really like it personally.

Ok... basically what I gathered from that article:

Networking Marketing - the drink actually probably costs like 40 cents to make, and it's 40 dollars a bottle. Yeah, a rip off. But that's how most things work in this consumerist society. Cars cost like 100 bucks or less to make.

And then it questions it's efficiency as a cancer fighter and one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. Saying that other fruits and vegetables do this exact same thing at a fraction of the cost. Well duh.. yeah it's outrageously expensive and it's over marketed but damn is that stuff good. The article even mentions pomegranate juice being like ten times cheaper and almost just as good as mangosteen. So basically it all comes to to marketing why this juice is 10 times more than any other juice. But I don't see tropicana making any mangosteen juice.

ok exaggeration. But you know cars don't cost no $15,000 to make.
I was just using that as an example that price gouging is pretty common and it doesn't surprise me coming from some exotic fruit.
who the hell has heard of a mangosteen?
they couldn't get away with charging that much for pineapple juice and shit.. because we know what those are. They sell them at the grocery store.
But ya you're right.. the mainstream consumer would probably not buy mangosteen juice. hey honey check this out.. secreted from the ovary glands of an exotic west indian gorilla species.. well would ya look at that.. sounds interesting lets try it.
