Levive Juice contain
all five juices that is good for the body
Researched by Rev. Dr. Antonio Arnold, 2009
Please read the following five fruits and benefits you’ll find in Levive juice from
The mangosteen is a tropical evergreen tree, believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas with tropical fruit with juicy
flesh. The mangosteen fruit, known as the queen of fruits is 2-3 inch diameter. The
outer purple-black skinned shell of the mangosteen fruit is hard. The snow-white,
juicy, soft flesh pulp is segmented like an orange with 4 to 8 triangular segments.
The mangosteen fruit is mild acidic, like that of a prune.
The mangosteen fruit is high in carbohydrates, fibers and iron but low in vitamins
and minerals. Juice provides many benefits that will help improve the
immune system and blood circulation, strengthen the body’s ability to fight
disease and infection due to its powerful antioxidants and healthy nutrients.
Recent research studies on mangosteen fruit and juice suggest that it is helpful in
preventing and stopping diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease,
Alzheimer's disease and other chronic diseases.It is no wonder that a growing
number of health practitioners are using the mangosteen in their clinical practice.

Noni Juice Benefits and Information
While its popularity soared during the 1990s, Noni fruit and juice have been around
for centuries and utilized in cultures across Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.
Officially known as Morinda citrifola, Noni is a type of mulberry. It flowers year round
producing a pungent and somewhat bitter fruit and juice. The juice is the most
widely used by-product but in some cultures the leaves and roots also find use. The
fruit is an excellent source of nutrients including Vitamin C, niacin, potassium,
Vitamin A, calcium and sodium. Research has identified the presence of 10 essential
vitamins, 7 dietary minerals, and 18 amino acids. Noni also contains a mixture of
anthroquinones, organic acids, and xeronine.
It is xeronine that some researchers believe holds the key to Noni’s potential. Noni contains significant amounts of proxeronine a precursor to the alkaloid xeronine. An enzyme in the body helps convert proxeronine into xeronine. This effect happens most frequently when noni is taken on an empty stomach. A University of Hawaii researcher who has studied xeronine for years believes Noni with its proxeronine content has potential to aid some types (although not all types) of high blood pressure, menstrual cramps, arthritis, gastric ulcers, atherosclerosis, pain relief, and mental depression among many other things. Much more study is needed to verify this and the mechanism by which it works.
Noni has been used by people with a variety of conditions. It has been used by
people with immune compromising diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome to boost the immune system function. It has been reported to help stabilize blood sugar levels by diabetics and hypoglycemic. Noni has been used by individuals suffering with inflammation, joint pain, and arthritis. Some people recommend Noni to improve digestive function, remove parasites, and cleanse the digestive tract. Similarly others use it for ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and diarrhea. One study of smokers
observed that total cholesterol and triglycerides improved after one month of drinking Noni juice.
The Benefits of the Acai Berry
For many centuries, the healing power of the acai berry was unknown outside of the Amazon rainforest where this amazing fruit grows wild. The rainforests of the world are thought to hold the keys to treating and preventing many of our most feared diseases, and as the rainforests disappear, those cures disappear along with them. The acai berry, however, used by the indigenous peoples of the region for thousands of years to enhance health and vitality, has already been discovered.
The acai berry grows as a wild plant on top of many native palm trees in the Amazon rainforest, with the fruits of the plant being harvested by local farmers and used to make a healthy and nutritious fruit pulp. When quickly frozen, this fruit pulp can retain its vast nutritional value even when being shipped around the world. The acai berry is known for its deep purple color, as well as for being a rich source of many important antioxidant vitamins.
The major benefits of the acai berry are thought to include its strong heart health benefits. The acai berry is known to be a rich source of compounds called anthocyanins. These anthocyanins are the same compounds thought to give red wine its health benefits, but acai berries may contain even higher concentrations of these healthy chemicals than wine, with none of the health risks associated with alcohol.
The acai berry is also a rich source of protein and dietary fiber, in addition to high levels of both omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, thought to have a protective effect on the heart and cardiovascular system. The omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids contained in the acai berry may also play a role in lowering levels of cholesterol in the blood.
In addition to these important benefits, the acai berry is thought to play a vital role in slowing down the aging process. In health food circles, the acai berry is known as one of the most powerful of the anti-aging superfoods. It is thought that this anti-aging effect is a combination of the high levels of anthocyanins and the strong antioxidant vitamin content the fruit contains. In fact, the acai berry is known to contain ten times as many antioxidant vitamins as grapes and twice as many as blueberries.
For many years the acai berry has been hard to find, even in health food stores and natural grocery stores. As the reputation of this super fruit continues to grow, however, its availability is on the rise. It is now possible to buy acai berries in their raw form, as well as purchasing a number of excellent, highly concentrated fruit drinks made with the healthful and powerful acai berry.
The acai berry is truly one of nature’s most healing foods, and a worthy addition to
any healthy diet.
Benefits of Goji Berries ___________________________________________________________________
Like the foods pictured here, goji berries are filled with antioxidants.
Goji berry marketers have made bold claims about their products’ powers: Goji berries
can prevent or even cure cancer. They provide more oxidants than any other fruit. They
boost sexual function and keep people looking and feeling young. Of course, not all of
these claims are true, and some may be difficult to verify. But there are some things about
goji berries that we can determine with certainty.
Goji berries are incredibly nutritious. For their weight -- a daily serving is only 10 to
30 grams -- goji berries have more vitamin C than oranges, more beta carotene than
carrots and more iron than steak. Beta carotene is believed to help fight heart
disease and also protects the skin from sun damage. Goji berries are also a good
source of B vitamins and antioxidants, which protect against harmful free radicals
that damage cells in your body. They’re also rich in polysaccharides, which aid the
immune system, have 18 kinds of amino acids, and are a rich source of potassium.
And, as if protecting your heart, skin and immune system weren’t enough, beta
carotene and antioxidants are thought to help fight cancer.
In fact, the claim that goji berry producers frequently refer to is the fruit’s supposed
cancer-fighting power. This ability, they say, stems from goji berries’ high antioxidant
content. Antioxidants are actually a class of vitamins that includes beta carotene and vitamins E and C. Goji berries rate highly in terms of Oxygen Radical Absorbance
Capacity (ORAC), a test developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.:
Dried goji berries have become a popular, healthy snack,
especially in the UK.
In 1999, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the
details of a study finding that foods with high ORAC values
may help to slow the aging process and to protect cells from
oxidative damage (from free radicals). The 25,000 ORAC
number is difficult to verify, but if it is to be believed, it
doesn’t mean that we should abandon all other antioxidant-
carrying fruits for goji berries. Antioxidants are good for the
body, but like many vitamins and minerals, there’s only so
much we can absorb. Anything more than a certain amount
will pass through the body unprocessed. In the case of
selenium, which is found in goji berries, the right quantity
helps to keep your liver healthy; too much can be toxic. For that reason, it’s good to stick to somewhere around the daily serving of goji berries –- 10 to 30 grams -- and to mix other
healthy, nutritious foods into your diet. http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/goji-berry1.htm
Pomegranates Have Many Health Benefits
Posting Date: 11/07/2005
Have you eaten a pomegranate? The fruit features in Greek mythology in the story of Persephone, daughter of the harvest goddess Demeter. Hades, the lord of the underworld, kidnapped the beautiful maiden. Because she ate a few pomegranate seeds before being rescued, she had to spend several months every year in the underworld with him. According to the myth, that?s when the earth was forced to endure winter.
Modern stories about pomegranates are not quite as fanciful as the myth, but there is a lot of buzz lately about the exotic fruit. How much is supported by scientific research?
Pomegranates grow wild from Iran to northern India, but they are cultivated throughout India, the Middle East, southern Europe and California. Scientists in Israel have been conducting research on the health benefits of pomegranates and pomegranate juice for years, and now others have joined in.
What are pomegranates good for? Researchers report that they are rich in antioxidants that can keep bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2000). This degradation of LDL seems to be an initial step in the development of atherosclerosis. In addition, pomegranate juice, like aspirin, can help keep blood platelets from clumping together to form unwanted clots.
Does this make any difference clinically? More recent research has found that eight
ounces of pomegranate juice daily for three months improved the amount of oxygen getting to the heart muscle of patients with coronary heart disease (American Journal of the College of Cardiology, Sept. 2005). Other researchers report that long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may help combat erectile dysfunction (Journal of Urology, July 2005).
Investigators are also excited about the possibility that pomegranate compounds might prevent prostate cancer or slow its growth. In mice, treatment with pomegranate extract delayed the development of tumors and improved survival (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Sept. 26, 2005). Other research reports suggest that pomegranate juice might help reduce the risk of breast cancer.
