Not to be your mom on this one, but yes: energy drinks are basically HORRIBLE! You knew that, though. The media has been transfixed lately over the illnesses and deaths of hundreds of people due to unhealthy energy drink consumption. The problem is that most of us still think our dirty little habit is still kind of safe because we aren't: A.) twelve years old, B.) drinking ten plus Monsters a day or C.) mixing energy drinks with illegal narcotic drugs — for fun.

Mango-what?, you say. Okay. It's alright if you haven't heard of this super-fruit yet. It's still relatively new and not something your average grocery store is going to carry.

Is "Meh" Your New Normal?

FYI: after the age of 30 it is totally normal to start feeling a little more stressed, fatigued, foggy brained, frazzled, pudgy, grumpy, unmotivated, irritable…and have your body kinda forget what the word "libido" means. As we age, our hormone levels change and for some of us that means we can get a little 'out of balance'. Feeling a tad "meh" is a totally acceptable place to be! So, just sit back. Let the drawstring on those sweat pants loosen and—WAIT A MINUTE. That is normal?! Seriously??? Normal sounds AWFUL! No one should have to feel like that!

But, LADIES — before you jump into doing Hormone Replacement Therapy and increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, breast and/or endometrial cancer; and GUYS — before you listen to that controversial "Low T" commercial that promises vitality (and warns you that your kids might grow mustaches if you use it wrong) — let's look at some of the more NATURAL options.

Aging IS, after all, natural. Hormonal fluctuation throughout our lives is natural too. But that doesn't mean you have to take feeling like crap lying down!

Here are some healthy alternatives to "taking" hormones:

Never heard of Eleviv? It's a new category-creating product designed to support your natural vigor, a scientific term that describes a balanced state of physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. In a nutshell, it is designed to make you feel better. (Scroll down below to see how other people say it makes them feel!)

At a recommended dosage of just two capsules a day, Eleviv has been shown to:

  • Boost energy levels and reduce fatigue*
  • Promote vigor through mental and physical stamina*
  • Improve coping abilities while stressed*
  • Enhance mood and a feeling of well-being*
  • Restore concentration and mental alertness*
  • Maintain metabolic balance*


Using a powerful patent-pending formula, Eleviv provides sustained physical energy, mental acuity and emotional balance. And the best part is that it does so naturally! (That means vivaciousness without extra body hair on you or your loved ones!) This supplement is a scientifically studied blend of four proven ingredients precisely formulated to restore your body’s natural balance, helping you feel cheerful, alert, resilient, vigorous and youthful.

This unique and exclusive botanical ingredient blend of Eurycoma longifolia, citrus peel extract, green tea extract, and pharmaceutical-grade L-Theanine helps to provide the much-needed balance our bodies need and the feelings of wellbeing we crave. What’s more, it does so without unnecessary caffeine, sugars and other stimulants already so common in our everyday lives.

Once you try it, you may be tempted to term it the "anti-meh" supplement. Here are just a few of the clinical trials that were performed on Eleviv:

Case Study 1

Overview: Healthy stressed individuals, 29 participants (8 men, 21 women). Followed 12 weeks.

Benefits:

  • Global Mood State (+22%)
  • Perceived Stress (-14%)
  • Tension (-27%)
  • Fatigue (-48%)
  • Confusion (-14%)
  • Vigor (+27%)
  • Depression* (-52%)
  • Anger (-41%)




Case Study 2

Overview: Healthy stressed individuals, 29 men, 16 women. Followed for 5 weeks.

Benefits: 82% improved vigor score in just 7 days

* Referring to the degree of a healthy mood state as assessed by the Profile of Mood States (POMS), not to depression as a clinical disease."




Case Study 3



The category-creating results of Eleviv only improve when taken alongside the whole-fruit puree of XANGO® Juice as indicated on the comparison of recent studies measuring C Reactive Protein (low levels of CRP are an indicator of cardiovascular health).

  • XANGO Juice—CRP levels decreased 36% compared to placebo in 8 weeks.*
  • XANGO Juice and Eleviv—CRP levels decreased 59% compared to XANGO Juice in 4 weeks.*

The conclusion:
XANGO Juice works even better and faster when Eleviv is introduced.





And here's what a few people who've tried have had to say:

Judy
I have been taking Eleviv for 5 days now and feel like a normal person again! By the third day, there was no mistaking the difference. I was mentally awake and alert more quickly after arising than usual, and my mood was much brighter. I don't mean to say I was high – not at all. But smoothed out and more mentally energized. Ready for the day. Not dragging my knuckles on the ground for the first couple of hours. By the fourth day, I was downright happy, smiling, and getting my personality back! I could think quicker, clearer, and not feel as sluggish mentally. I could feel a shift. It was like an old car that had been having a hard time idling, and finally cleared out the fuel lines and started running smoothly!

William Robbins
I noticed within hours that I had much more energy and it lasted all day, with no crash whatsoever. Even when I have less sleep than my usual, I have the ability to wake up with a clear mind, and the energy I need to start my day.

Alicia Burbidge
I have been using Eleviv for a couple of months now and WOW, what a difference! My head is clearer. I have lots more energy. My days are more focused and, physically, well let's just say that my aching joints don't ache any more. I went off of it for about a week and in just a couple of days I could tell a huge difference. This is a really great product.

Carole
The first thing I experienced was a total calmness (by the second day). I actually felt “relaxed” while entertaining and preparing dinner for guests by the end of the first week. I’m not tossing and turning trying to get to sleep – I’m now sleeping through the night and waking totally refreshed. I’m truly happy and laughing again!

Sheli Kellogg
Started using Eleviv a couple weeks ago. I've slept so much more restful than I have in years! I wake up with a happy heart and feel like my energy level is higher than it's ever been! My husband is taking it too, and he's getting the same results! We love it!

For the love of everything healthy—stop feeling "meh"!

Your body wants to be in balance again. It wants to feel youthful. Get your vigor back! Get Eleviv!

5 Reasons to Kick the Can!

Not to be your mom on this one, but yes: energy drinks are basically HORRIBLE! You knew that, though. The media has been transfixed lately over the illnesses and deaths of hundreds of people due to unhealthy energy drink consumption.

The problem is that most of us still think our dirty little habit is still kind of safe because we aren't: A.) twelve years old, B.) drinking ten plus Monsters a day or C.) mixing energy drinks with illegal narcotic drugs — for fun.

Good job if you're not doing those things. Unfortunately, even if you're only a "casual consumer" of these kinds of drinks, you're still not completely safe from all the side effects associated with them. So, before you pop another tab, take a look at these 5 reasons to seriously rethink your options when it comes to energy:


1. Synthetic Caffeine

If it says the word "caffeine" on the label then, surprise! It's not real caffeine. It's synthetic. Chemicals created in a lab. Why is this bad? One reason is that it's a lot more potent than natural caffeine — in a bad way. Artificial means a quicker spike and, of course, a quicker crash. Another con to taking fake caffeine is that the entire process of extracting it means you're consuming something that's probably been exposed to a number of harsh chemicals including: methylene chloride, ethyl acetate and carbon dioxide.

If you need caffeine, your best bet is to go "au naturel." Natural caffeine (in its botanical form) actually has the ability to regulate your body's reaction to it. This means a dramatic reduction in all the negative side effects associated with caffination: sleeplessness; nervousness; heart palpitations; nausea; looking like a crazy person, etc. (Okay, we added that last one — but you know it's true.)


2. Sugar is Bad

The average regular energy drink contains anywhere from 2-5 tablespoons of sugar. Yes: that's 'table' not 'tea'. And even if you go for a more natural version of the energy drink: coffee, only about a third of us are drinking it black. If you are among this group, congratulations! Your chest hair must be amazing. The rest of us "too-much-cream-&-sugar" people have some work to do…

You may not realize it when you're grabbing a cup-a-joe from your regular coffee place but that barista is not your friend. Coffee beverages are typically brimming with sugar — sometimes as much as 61 grams per drink! Just to put that into perspective for you, the World Health Organization recently came out with the recommendation that we consume no more than 25 grams of sugar in a day. Not to beat a dead a person-who-ate-too-much-sugar, but consuming too much sugar is associated with obesity, cancer, premature aging, alzheimer's disease , diabetes and a lot of other horrible, horrible things. Bad, bad, barista!


3. Sugar-Free is Worse

Watching your weight? Keeping your sugar intake down? Way to go, friend! You are going to look awesome in those yoga pants! But, hold up a minute: you wouldn't happen to be trading your sugary beverages for any of those controversial artificially sweetened ones, would you? No. Not you…right? Right??? Aspartame (the most common artificial sweetener in sugar-free energy drinks) is extremely controversial for a reason. Recently, the Italian based EFSA found aspartame to be safe for human consumption but a slew of other studies correlate aspartame consumption with everything from memory loss to cancer. In fact, one study done as recently as April of 2014 found moderate levels of aspartame showed participants to have increased irritability, depression and perform worse on spacial orientation tests. So, while the 'zero-cal' option is tempting, it might be wiser to err on the side of caution when it comes to all things artificial. Opt for a natural alternative, perhaps. Ever heard of stevia?


4. If You Can't Prounounce It…

…Maybe you, uh…shouldn't be drinking it. Glucuronolactone, pyridoxin hydrochloride, inositol, niacinamide, cyanocobalamin — hey, it's never a bad thing to expand your vocabulary, right? But no one should have to eat these words. Most energy drinks contain a minimum of 20 ingredients, the majority of which are unpronounceable mysteries to you and I. The problem with these ingredients is that there is a profound lack of science supporting the safety of their consumption. Many have yet to be studied for their longterm effects. But, the fact that you can easily grab one of these ingredient containing energy drinks from just about anywhere leads many to believe that they are safe. The truth is, they might not be. Even worse, some studies are now showing that these unspeakable ingredients don't even 'give you wings'! Not even figuratively!


5. The Acid Trip

Not for your brain — for your teeth. The acid found in carbonated beverage — especially energy drinks, can erode the enamel of your teeth. Enamel, schnenamel, right? WRONG. Your body isn't equipped to create more enamel, ever! So once the enamel you have is gone, it is GONE. How do you know if your teeth are experiencing acid enamel erosion? First, they start to become translucent. Then yellow. Their shape becomes rounded instead of square. They get more sensitive than a girl in middle school and eventually, they can crack. This leads to infection and eventually tooth rot. YIKES. So even though we're all glad to see you feeling perky in the morning — no one wants to see you with pirate teeth! Trust me on this.


Kick the Can

Yes. Most energy drinks are bad. But you can't just cut them cold turkey without an alternative to replace them! So, what DO you do when you need more energy? Easy. Eat better. Exercise often. Sleep more. AND look for a delicious, healthy energy drink with a natural source of caffeine that is low cal, artificial-sweetener free and non-carbonated. And if we're making a wish list here it would also be great if it was super portable and cheaper than what we're already spending, right? Any ideas?

How about Limitless? Limitless offers a combination of natural ingredients that work synergistically to deliver the energy, focus, and hydration you need to enhance your performance (and it tastes AMAZING). Yay! Here's just a few of the ways that Limitless stacks up against some of the 'regulars': Thousands of people all over the world are kicking the can (and some serious booty!) with this little drink.

7 Reasons Why Your Body Needs Mangosteen

Mango-what?, you say. Okay. It's alright if you haven't heard of this super-fruit yet. It's still relatively new and not something your average grocery store is going to carry. But, it is getting lot of attention right now from those who are in-the-know when it comes to being healthy—including the Mayo Clinic, Sloan Kettering, The University of California at Berkley and even the American Cancer Society.

Before we tell you why you need it, let's help you figure out what it is. First off, it's NOT a mango. Nope. Not even close.

The MANGOSTEEN is a tiny fruit found in southeast Asia and is about the size of a tangerine. It's purple on the outside and white, sweet and segmented on the inside. In fact, it's so delicious that Queen Victoria was rumored to knight anyone who could bring her some!

But, it's the outside of the fruit - the thick, bitter purple part - that has people talking. Why? Because it is chock full of xanthones (super powerful phytonutrients).

There are about 200 different kinds of xanthones found in nature, each of which have unique and specific functions. The mangosteen fruit has about 40 different xanthones and it happens to be the only known edible source of them in the world. Unless you're into eating tree bark…

Scientific studies suggest xanthones may promote healthy bodily function. In fact, the WHOLE mangosteen fruit, packed with naturally occurring xanthones, may help you with a variety of things. But here are just a few of the reasons why we think YOUR body needs it:

1. Your Heart Will LOVE You For It
Your circulatory system, including your heart and blood vessels, are responsible for distributing nutrients to every part of you body. Poor cardiovascular health can lead to all sorts of not fun things. Research shows that the xanthones in the mangosteen fruit may support cardiovascular health*.

2. Your Body Was Made to Move
Your body has exactly 360 joints and roughly 20 feet of cartilage in it! Taking care of them is crucial to ensuring your body's ability to move the way you want to throughout your life. Research shows that the xanthones found in the mangosteen fruit may support cartilage and joint function*.

3. Do You Know How Crappy it is to Be an Intestine?
Yes, pun intended. But seriously. Those guys (the long and the short) are responsible for handling all of the food you put into your body and when they don't feel good, neither do you. Research shows that the xanthones in the mangosteen may maintain your intestinal health*.

4. Breathing is Fun to Do - YEAR Round
Research shows that the xanthones found in the mangosteen may help promote a healthy seasonal respiratory system*. Because we all know that ain't nobody got time for an unhealthy respiratory system!

5. Who Doesn't Want a Better Metabolism?
Your metabolism defines how your body regulates energy, i.e. calories. Research shows that the xanthones in the mangosteen may help promote a healthy metabolism*. Yay!

6. Sick of Being Sick?
The average person experiences illness two to three times a year. That may not seem like much but each episode can last anywhere from a day to even a week or TWO. Yuck. Research shows that the xanthones in the mangosteen may support the immune system*

7. Anti-oxidants are Awesome!
Free radicals are constantly bombarding our bodies in an attempt to steal and/or force unwanted electrons on us, thereby damaging our cells, protein and DNA. Basically, free-radicalls are all a bunch of jerks. Research shows that the xanthones found in the mangosteen may neutralize free radicals*. Take that jerks!

So, do your body a favor and be like Queen Victoria! Just make sure you're getting your mangosteen in its WHOLE fruit form so you get the benefit of all those amazing xanthones.

For centuries, those in Southeast Asia have revered the mangosteen, both for its flavor and the suggestion that it promotes good health.  The whole mangosteen fruit—especially the xanthone-packed pericarp or rind—has been used traditionally to treat a variety of health conditions, actually.  As early as 600 AD, scribes recorded the use of the mangosteen in the support and maintenance of good health.


Mangosteen: "The Queen of Fruits"

Legend has it that Queen Victoria offered knighthood to any subject who could bring her a mangosteen fruit in prime condition.  No one succeeded.  The virtual impossibility of preserving the fruit during the weeks-long journey prohibited anyone outside of the growing regions from doing so.  But, thanks to the Queen’s admirable quest, the fruit achieved the title, "Queen of Fruits," a name still used around the globe.


Discovering Mangosteen: Joe's Story

Joe Morton knew something out there would change the nutritional supplement landscape.  He had seen groundbreaking products before — aloe vera, cayenne, echinacea — and realized that the next revolution was just around the corner.  And, as he sat in an open-air café in Southeast Asia, Joe found what he’d been looking for.  Only it wasn’t quite what he expected.  The waiter delivered a fruit he had never seen before, the revered and celebrated mangosteen fruit.  The flavor knocked him off his feet.  His interest piqued, Joe asked questions.  Answers arrived in piles.  The mangosteen was a dual-powered wonder, a fusion of fantastic flavor and health-promoting benefits.  Joe immediately recognized the potential of the mangosteen fruit.  Fueled by the desire to share it with others, he dug deeper.  He enlisted the research skills of medical professionals and found stacks of supporting research.  And, with decades of research and studies, Joe knew that it was time for the world to learn about the Queen of Fruits, the mangosteen.


From Mangosteen to XANGO

XANGO (derived from the words XANthones and manGOsteen) is the first — the original mangosteen supplement — a true category creator.  Joe Morton's vision has been confirmed.  Existing mangosteen research has been validated with thousands upon thousands of individual accounts the world over.

Derived from the Greek word phyto (plant) and nutrient (a constituent of food necessary for normal physiological function), phytonutrients—also known as phytochemicals—are natural, bioactive compounds found in plant foods.  Fruits and vegetables rich in phytonutrients include the mangosteen, papaya, spinach and others.

Most phytonutrients overlap and complement one another, boasting complete benefits that include antioxidant effects and immune system support*.  In short, specific phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables work together with other nutrients to protect your health.

More than 900 different phytonutrients have been found in plant foods.  Many have been just recently isolated, while others remain undiscovered.  These protective plant compounds are an emerging area of health and nutrition.

The careful crafting of XANGO's all-natural, whole-fruit, mangosteen purée ensures that all of the impressive and healthful phytonutrients of the fruit enrich XANGO® Juice.  The strongest and most researched phytonutrients of the mangosteen are its xanthones.

Among the powerful phytonutrients found in the rind of the mangosteen, xanthones stand alone in their impressive benefits.  Scientific studies suggest xanthones may promote healthy bodily function.  The whole mangosteen fruit, packed with naturally occurring xanthones, may help:

  • maintain intestinal health*
  • support the immune system*
  • neutralize free radicals*
  • support cartilage and joint function*
  • promote a healthy seasonal respiratory system*

Xanthones in Mangosteen

Researchers have identified dozens of biologically active xanthones in the mangosteen fruit.  Today, researchers are just beginning to uncover the powerful scientific properties behind the mangosteen fruit.


What are Xanthones?

Xanthones are:

  • A unique class of biologically active compounds possessing numerous bioactive capabilities — such as antioxidant properties.
  • A restricted group of plant polyphenols, biosynthetically related to the flavonoids.
  • polyphenol – a group of plant chemical substances characterized by the presence of more than one phenolic group. Polyphenols are responsible for the color of some plants and are considered strong antioxidants with potential health benefits.
  • flavonoid – over 5,000 naturally occurring flavonoids have been characterized from various plants. The beneficial effects of plant-derived food are often attributed to flavonoid compounds, rather than known nutrients, as they show a wide range of biological effects.
  • Chemically speaking, planar-six carbon molecules in a conjugated ring system consisting of a backbone molecule and various chemical groups attached to it. The backbone consists of two benzene rings bridged through a carbonyl group and oxygen. Each ring is connected in a fused formation not allowing free rotation about the carbon-carbon bonds. This unique backbone along with type and position of the attached chemical groups define specific functionalities (properties) of xanthones.
