What are the types of arthritis?

There are two types of Arthritis that are most common, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Both of these disorders affect people in different ways

Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs when the body attacks joints.  Inflammation is sent into the joints to fight a problem that does not exist causing pain and other symptoms.   Rheumatoid Arthritis is most common in adults from the age of 25 to 50, but can be found in everyone including children. 

Osteoarthritis affects more the 21 million Americans and is the most common type of arthritis. It can also be called "degenerative joint disease" and most often affects the weight-bearing joints. The Osteoarthritis results from joints becoming damaged, whether from long-term "wear and tear" or a previous injury. Osteoarthritis arthritis usually is diagnosed in people older than 40. Nearly everyone 70 and older has osteoarthritis in at least one joint, but not everyone develops symptoms.


The Mangosteen Effect:

Inflammation is the primary causes of the pain in nearly all type of Arthritis.   The body gets false reports that there is damage to a joint or muscle and sends in an inflammatory army to fight the problem.  This inflammation brings additional blood into the area and causes swelling, heat and pain.   Researchers from India studied the rind of the mangosteen fruit and found the following results:

1) Suppression of acute and chronic inflammation and edema in rats.

2) Inhibition of systemic anaphylaxis (fatal inflammatory reaction) in guinea pigs and rats.

3) Inhibition of arthritis in rats.

In another study scientists have proven in laboratory tests that a Xanthone derivative of the mangosteen fruit have significant COX 2 inhibitor properties.   The COX 2 inhibitors in the mangosteen fruit are believed to be a more powerful COX 2 inhibitor then some of the most powerful COX 3 medication including; Vioxx, Celebrex, Naproxen and Bextra.  The full study on the COX 2 properties of the mangosteen fruit can be read by following the link below

Testimonials for Arthritis


June 2006

About one year ago my fingers began to ache almost continually. Because the pain was not interfering with my sleep, I didn't seek any help. Within a few months I was given a bottle of mangosteen juice. Within the first month, I suddenly realized I was not feeling any pain or discomfort in my fingers! They were back to normal as long as I drank 2-3 ounces each day. When traveling, or if I ran out of the juice, the finger pain would start to return.

Other great fringe benefits of consuming the mangosteen juice for me have been more restful sleep, enhanced mental clarity, improvement in a couple potential skin cancer spots, some easing of allergy symptoms, better digestion, and lots of energy! I plan to drink mangosteen juice for life!!!

I have osteoarthritis in my right knee and am limited in my ability to walk. Whenever I sit down for any length of time, I have a difficult time standing up as my knee "locks" and I have to rise slowly until it unlocks and I have to walk slowly at first. It has been like this for three years. After one week on mangosteen juice (5 oz. daily) I suddenly realized I was standing up and walking normally.I have also been able to discontinue my antibiotic for my skin.

I have had Osteoarthritis for the past 7-8 years. I have been on a daily dose of Ultram and Darvocet to manage it. Even on a maximum dosage of Ultram, I would still experience stiffness, heaviness and pain in my legs. Going from a seated position to a standing position always caused difficulty.....that is until I tried Mangosteen juice. A friend of mine at work told me about it.....I got a bottle from her (with some skepticism). The next day I took 1 ounce before coming to work and by lunch time, I noticed that my legs were NOT hurting, and it was easy to get up and down. I have been on it for only 1 week, and I can testify whole-heartedly that I have been pain and stiffness FREE since the very FIRST DOSE! What a God-send!

I am a 60+ male and have lived with pain from Osteo-Arthritis in my knees and hips for many years. I have taken many different prescriptions and OTC medications to cope with the pain, stiffness and swelling that made simply standing up a dreaded event. Even with the meds, there were days when I could hardly walk from my car in to work.

The paid was so bad that, if I neglected to take my evening medications, I would wake up in the morning with excruciating pain and would be unable to function until I had taken my meds. Lying in bed in a fetal position for 15 to 20 minutes waiting for the pain to subside was no picnic.

I was introduced to Mangosteen Juice on a Tuesday evening. I drank 3 ounces at the start of dinner and another 3 ounces before we finished the meal and went in for the business presentation. The next morning, I woke refreshed and alert. Interesting! My next observation as I swung my legs out of bed was that there wasn't even a hint of pain! It was simply gone! No way. That's just too quick and too complete. This has got to be a fluke I said to myself.

So, to test it I quit taking all medications. No COX-2 inhibitors. No OTC anti-inflammatories. No pain pills. Nothing. I have had absolutely no pain since and the stiffness and swelling in my joints is subsiding. I have also noticed that I am more alert and energized and don't want to take naps like I was before.

There is just no other word to describe it -- From my perspective, this is simply a miracle - a God given miracle!

It may not work as quickly for you as it did for me but, people, you have GOT to give this product a 90+ day trial and see if it doesn't improve your quality of life as it has mine!

Be Well!
