Joint Pain, Arthritis, Rheumatism? No More! How?

You won’t believe this but it’s TRUE!

This is a real testimony of my mother who suffered from joint pain, arthritis and rheumatism for over 6 years back in 2005 and lasted in 2011.

What was her condition at that time?

Let me tell you a little background of my mother and how her everyday life affected with her condition.
My mother’s occupation was a high-speed machine sewer in a local garment for more than 20 years. Because of her everyday routine, she noticed that her fingers’ joints are aching as well as her knees and shoulders. She tried taking pain relievers, patch, mentholated lotion and ointments. But, these are for temporary relief. Until her knees and finger joints became deformed and swollen. With that conditions it unable her to walk, grip and even hold a spoon with her swollen right hand.
We advice her to stop taking synthetic medicines because of the side effects it may cause in her liver and kidney as well.
How did her sufferings ended?

My mother love to listen on the radio in a program about herbal medicines, with the late +Mr. Ernie Baron. Then she found out that this herbal medicine could help her. 
What is it? 
No other than the “Coconut Oil”. Every week she juices coconut milk to make oil by pouring the coconut milk into a glass and leave it for a week until the oil separated from the milk itself. Or the quickest way is by heating the coconut milk in a frying pan until it becomes oil. Else, there is available bottled coconut oil in the stores now for those who can afford and no time to do the first said procedure.

The most important thing to do is to make it a habit of applying the oil on the swelling joints of your body.

Every day and night, my mother applies the coconut oil on her swollen knees and fingers. She never failed doing so, because she feels that swelling becomes lesser. After two to three months of using the coconut oil, pain and swellings are gone her deformed knees turned into a normal condition. Now she could walk properly, grip her hands, she also recommends coconut oil to our neighbors with the same condition and most importantly she’s happy now that she could carry my baby daughter. Its 2014 already, my mother is still using coconut oil not frequent unlike before. And now she’s 58 years old no arthritis and rheumatism at all.

Top 10 Natural Health Remedies of Coconut Oil

10. Oral Health -Many natural health practitioners believe that oral health is the very foundation of overall health. Coconut oil has been used as a healthy alternative from toxic commercial toothpastes that contain fluoride. This oil also has been demonstrated to harden enamel, thus reducing the chance of serious dental events. Lastly, due to its antibacterial properties, it serves as a boost toward reducing sores and other infections. Oil pulling with coconut oil is an all-around insurance against tooth decay and debilitating oral health issues.

9. Fungal Treatment – The properties of coconut oil have a wide range of anti-fungal uses: topically for athlete’s foot, for example; and also internally with candida and yeast infections. It is a soft and beneficial protection for everyone from serious sports athletes to newborns . . . chemical-free and nutrient dense. For those plagued by candida, which is a group of over 150 species of yeast that can lead to a host of minor and major complications and diseases, a specific Candida Diet including coconut oil could bring major relief as “coconut oil contains 3 different fatty acids (Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, Lauric Acid) that have each been found to be effective against the Candida yeast.

8.  Digestive Aid – A number of studies have shown that consumption of coconut oil, which is naturally high in beneficial saturated fats, can alleviate common maladies such as constipation, acid indigestion and acid reflux. Studies also show it to be effective in the much more serious and debilitating afflictions such as ulcertative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Coconut oil contains anti-microbial properties that can reduce infection and inflammation making it ideal for all intestinal and gut-related issues.

7.  Nutrient
– As a natural digestive aid, coconut oil has been shown to increase vitamin and mineral absorption. In this area, a technical explanation is required, which shows why nutrient absorption is so important in reducing stress on the body, minimizing the likelihood of chronic diseases, and optimizing one’s overall health and longevity … right from the beginning of life.

6. Energy Booster – Coconut oil has demonstrated both short- and long-term energy level benefits both physically and mentally. With increased energy levels and mental focus, workout regimens and daily activity become more productive. This can help immensely in all areas of life. Coconut oil is a key alternative to the energy drink craze which often relies on caffeine as a stimulant, giving a profound short-term boost, but an equally severe energy level crash with some potentially long-term negative side effects. The key component, again, are the medium chain fatty acids which are processed and metabolized faster; and, unlike sugar – natural or processed – this type of fatty acid gives a sustained boost to energy. The fat calories are converted immediately to energy.

5. Weight Loss – When the body’s digestive system is functioning optimally, absorbing nutrients efficiently, and full of good energy, the body is well-primed for weight loss. Naturally, as we get older, we find that losing weight becomes a greater task as our metabolism declines and organs become increasingly strained. Additionally, blood sugar imbalances can become more frequent, even leading to pre-diabetic or diabetic conditions. The healthy fat properties contained within coconut oil have shown to be effective in stabilizing blood sugar and boosting metabolism, ensuring that the negative fat does not get stored.

4. Allergy Relief – There are many natural ways to alleviate allergies such as hay fever, and coconut oil has emerged as yet another much-needed aid to those who suffer seasonally or chronically. Coconut oil also has been used to counter food allergies. Those who have difficulty with common allergens such as soy, wheat, gluten, peanuts, or dairy can find relief with coconut oil. It should be cautioned, however, that in rare cases people can be allergic to coconut oil, so that possibility cannot be discounted completely.

3. Cold and Flu Prevention and Relief – Coconut oil has the trifecta of anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial properties, including lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid. Daily consumption can significantly boost your immunity. By simply replacing butter and cooking oils with coconut oil, you can easily help your body fend off invaders. If a cold or flu does take hold, coconut oil can shorten the duration and soften the overall effects, as it acts like a natural antibiotic. Adding a bit to a smoothie or tea is a perfect way to help get rid of congestion, sore throat, and pain in bones, joints, head and ears.

2. Pain Relief – As mentioned above, coconut oil also has essential properties for directly fighting pain. This extends beyond alleviating temporary conditions such as flu, cold, and headaches. The anti-inflammatory elements of coconut oil have been shown to naturally help serious conditions such as arthritis. Arthritis is actually a catch-all term that includes more than 100 associated conditions and symptoms that affect the bones, joints, and surrounding connective tissues. Coconut oil’s ability to alleviate such a wide range of ailments affecting tens of millions of people (300,000 children under the age of 18 in the U.S. alone!), as well as to assist with developing a healthy lifestyle of prevention make this a wonder substance. Yet again, we return to the unique group of fatty acids in coconut oil that can reduce inflammation and pain, while lubricating muscles and joints. However, it is not only ingestion; coconut oil can be used topically to increase blood supply to the affected area and reduce ocalized pain and swelling. The promotion of circulation and flexibility can help debilitating conditions such as arthritis as well as fibromyalgia.

1. Skin Protection: This is clearly the single greatest area where coconut oil has proven to be a wonder substance. In fact the uses reach into the many dozens, but among them are: sun protection and salve, moisturizing lotion, non-irritant deodorant, makeup removal, shaving cream, diaper rash protection and salve, age spot removal, stretch mark reduction, and as a massage oil for easing both surface and muscular tension and pain. Using coconut oil to replace commercial products, which are often heavy with petroleum or are water-logged, is a number one use for this miracle substance.

A Miraculous Healing!

It was March 15, 2011 when Chibz was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He was confined at CHDC Hospital for chemotherapy, blood transfusion and bone marrow aspiration. Because of financial problem, his chemotherapy session was discontinued. His condition was aggravated. 

From a standard case, it became a high-risk case of leukemia. He was transferred from private to government hospital, SPMC. Chibz had to undergo blood transfusion every other day from May 17-June 11, 2012.

He was very ill. He had abdominal enlargement due to enlarged liver and yellowish discoloration of the eyes. 1Goal products were introduced by a friend during the 1Goal product launching in Davao. When Chibz took Gravitrol (Graviola&Resveratrol) and Camu Camu Pure Nature C 1 capsule each 3 times a day, his platelet and hemoglobin count became normal and there’s was no more need for blood transfusion. Gravitrol and Pure Nature C contributed significantly to improving the little boy’s life.

Thanks to God! Thanks to Gravitrol and Pure Nature C for giving Chibz another life to live!

Camu Camu Pure Nature C – The highest vitamin C content on the planet!

Pure Nture C

Pure Nature C 100% – Natural Camu Camu Extracts
“I take vitamin C for colds… I prefer to get mine from Camu Camu, the amazing Amazonian fruit that has the world’s highest vitamin C content.”

Dr. James Duke, USDA scientist and author of The Green Pharmacy.

Is your vitamin C supplement really vitamin C? 

Probably not! Ninety-nine percent of all vitamin C supplements are ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate. Despite marketing claims, these laboratory-produced molecules are not natural vitamin C — far from it. They are chemically synthesized molecules manufactured in a test tube and often made from genetically modified corn sugar. These synthetic molecules mimic only one of the numerous life-supporting molecules found in 100% natural vitamin C.

In the 1930s, Dr. Szent-Györgyi won the Nobel Prize in medicine for identifying vitamin C and all its many health benefits. Although he successfully isolated the molecule ascorbic acid in his research, his studies clearly demonstrated the vastly superior benefits of consuming foods rich in vitamin C. For this reason, even though he discovered ascorbic acid, he did not recommend its use! In fact, Dr. Szent-Györgyi affirmed over and over again that the best results occurred when people consumed vitamin C in its natural food form.

The Camu Camu is a shrub that grows in the Peruvian rainforest along the Amazon River in Peru. It contains the highest amount of natural vitamin C of any herbal source in the world.

“approximately 60 times more vitamin C than what is found in Oranges”.

Nothing beats the natural and organic. Camu camu berries are considered the world’s richest natural source of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Compared to oranges, these fruits contain 50 times more vitamin C, 10 times more iron, 3 times more niacin, twice the riboflavin, and 50% more phosphorus. Camu camu is a very important nutritional supplement due to its high content of vitamin C Camu-Camu is also a significant source of potassium, providing 711 mg/kg of fruit. It also has a full complement of minerals and amino acids which can aid in the absorption of vitamin C. Alpha-pinene and d-limonene, compounds known as terpenes, predominate as the volatile compounds in this fruit. A fact which has made it an indispensable fruit in the natural health products markets of several countries around the world, such as Japan, the United States, Germany, France, etc.

Switching to Natural Vitamin C 

People experiencing Camu-Camu have stopped using large dosages of synthetic vitamin C because they find that just 2 caps (300 mg/cap) daily of natural vitamin C sources such as Camu-Camu is superior in strengthening the immune system, energizing and mood-lifting effects. Three caps, once or twice daily, can clear up most cases of bleeding gums and provide remarkable energy-boosting effects. It has the additional benefit of being non-irritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders.

Vitamin C plays an essential role in the immune system and as a powerful anti-oxidant. Camu – camu because of the high content of Vitamin C is the most powerful natural anti-oxidant in the world.

Whether you know it or not, your body is being constantly attacked by very harmful substances known as free radicals. You can not see them, smell them or touch them, but they are always there, trying to destroy your cells, tissues and organs.

Free radicals are highly unstable molecules that are generated mainly during the process of oxidation; the very process that produces the energy necessary to stay alive. They also come from outside sources, such as environmental pollution, smoking and various synthetic chemicals that are added to our water and food. The free radicals are chemically unstable because they lack one electron. In order to stabilize themselves, they attack any other substance within their reach and grab an electron from them. This, of course, creates a new free radical, which proceeds to repeat the process, producing a “domino effect.” When this reaction is uncontrolled, it can generate millions of free radicals within seconds.

Natural food components are much more bioavailable to the body than the synthetically processed vitamins that are common to most dietary supplements. While a chemist may tell you that if a synthetic molecule is identical to a natural molecule, it will perform identically in the body; the reality is that in nature, the natural molecule is attached to scores of other molecules that participate in its action within the body.

Camu Camu, vitamin “C” found in nature consists of enzymes, bioflavonoids and scores of other components that are collectively referred to as the P factor. These P factors serve the body in numerous other ways besides antioxidant activity. The P factors strengthen the vascular system. They make the vessels tougher and more durable. They improve the integrity of the capillaries. The bioflavonoids are anti-inflammatory, helping to improve wound healing and particularly effective in reducing the inflammation of ulcers.

It is complimented in a base by two other highly concentrated vitamin C fruits; Amla fruit from India and Goji Berries from Tibet. Monatrace™ minerals energetically harmonize the formula.

Reduces Allergies 

It May Help Reduce Your Allergy Symptoms Vitamin C plays an essential role in the immune system. It is found in every cell of our body and performs various functions:

One small study conducted at the Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, found significant reductions in blood levels of histamine after people took 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C for three consecutive days.

Today, most of us are familiar with the many scientific studies demonstrating vitamin C’s important health-enhancing and antioxidant benefits. What people may not know is that like Dr. Szent-Györgyi’s research, much of this research is conducted using foods high in vitamin C and not synthetic ascorbic acid supplements. This is a very significant distinction — scientists and healthcare providers consistently emphasize the importance of obtaining all our nutrients from whole foods such as Pure Nature C. The proven health benefits we all associate with vitamin C are actually created by the intricate interaction of numerous supportive co-factors found only in food, not in isolated, synthesized molecules. Test-tube vitamin C simply cannot re-create the magnificent synergy of whole-food vitamin C.

Bursting with the proven goodness of 100% natural vitamin C, The GMC Health’s Pure Nature C combines timeless nutritional wisdom with modern innovation. Its potency are certified organic foods, rich in natural vitamin C, safely provides you with the many benefits of this essential nutrient while protecting the Peruvian and Amazon Rainforest and its people.

After our Camu Camu berries are carefully hand harvested, However, the time between harvesting and consumption is crucial, because the fruit may lose up to a quarter ot its vitamin C content in less than a month (even if frozen). That is the reason why GMC Health Inc. sells only Camu Camu Extract, in order to provide its customers with only Camu Camu containing all the original nutrients. Camu Camu contains 70 to 90 times more vitamin C than an orange, plus bioflavanoids, and a combination of phytonutrients unique to the Cam,u Camu fruit.

Camu-Camu and Cancer

The high Vitamin C content of Camu-Camu makes it powerful at preventing cancer. The US Department of Agriculture and the National Cancer Institute state that high Vitamin C consumption helps to prevent cancer associated with the colon, stomach, mouth, lung, esophagus and throat. So, eating Camu-Camu will lower your risk of developing different kinds of cancers.

The health benefits of Camu-Camu are great and wide ranging. Camu-Camu is not popular in the Us, but because of its many health benefits, Camu-Camu is sold as a powdered supplement in drug stores. However, if you look around Latin and Asian supermarkets, you are bound to find Camu-Camu on the market stands and reap the rewards of its many health benefits. Please note that Camu-Camu should not be consumed during pregnancy and that you should talk to your doctor before supplementing your daily diet.

Beware of Your Source 

Beware of your Camu-Camu product — many brands that contain Camu-Camu also add synthetic vitamin C to their product. Also, be sure your Camu-Camu product contains no toxic additives, fillers, corn or gluten. Although the amount of vitamin C which Camu-Camu contains may appear low compared to the amount in synthetically derived vitamin C products, the effects on the human body are incomparable.

Because of its natural nutrient symphony, including bioflavonoids and other synergists, clinical evidence suggests that it is far more effective than any amount of synthetic vitamin C (ascorbic acid) or ester vitamin C, especially over a 3 to 6 week period of use or longer.

The popular knowledge and use in Peru describe some properties and applications to camu camu. It is used in the prevention and treatment of viral infections, colds, autoimmune diseases, and even in order to lose weight.

Also used as an antioxidant (high vitamin C level) and astringent. This fruit is also a good source of potassium, besides containing a good rate of minerals (iron, calcium and phosphorus), vitamins (B1 and B2), and amino acids that can help the absorption of vitamin C.

Extraordinary Immune support

Health care practitioners report the extraordinary nutritional benefits of natural-source vitamin C, complex for supporting the body’s immune defense against internal invaders. A couple grams of Camu-Camu readily outperform the benefits previously achieved with mega doses of ester vitamin C or mega doses of L-lysine.

The Peruvian government expects that Camu-Camu will become a major export when its amazing properties are discovered in the US to bear fruit, the Camu-Camu bush must be 4 to 5 years old. The growing popularity of this wild rain forest fruit is contributing to the sustainable development of the Amazon River basin and helping the natives maintain their traditional way of life.

The Camu-Camu fruit has a surprising range of health-promoting properties. Best known among these are Camu-Camu’s potent ability to strengthen the immune system and to help maintain healthy gums, eyes and skin.

Dr Gary Null Ph.D , a well-known nutritionist and researcher has investigated many of the extraordinary medicinal properties of this Amazon rain forest fruit (1996). In his “Clinican’s Handbook of Natural Healing.” (1998), he lists disease conditions and the herbs that have been found effective for their health promoting properties in reference to specific organ/system weaknesses and problems.

Anti-Depressant Treatment

In discussing the holistic treatment of depression, he list 19 plants containing chemical compounds with antidepressant properties in order of potency – Camu-Camu is Number 2 on his list. It appears to provide nutritional support for the brain to optimize its own mood-balancing chemistry.

Anti-Herpes Effect

Dr. Null lists 19 plants which contain anti-herpetic phytochemicals. The plant with the largest amount of these phytochemicals is Camu-Camu. Health care practitioners report that Camu-Camu has provided effective nutritional support to put shingles into remission, and has cut there expected time for reduction of symptoms in half by supporting the body’s natural defenses. Some users have reported that cold sores have resolved in just one day and genital herpes outbreak was resolved in 48 hours. in other cases, the Epstein-Barr type of chronic fatigue has shown improvement in one or two weeks.

Herpes Cleared

Camu-Camu may be taken on a daily basis to provide highly effective support for the body’s immune defenses against the herpes virus (when it lies dormant in the body). In one case, a 45-year-old woman with genital herpes had outbreaks about every six weeks. After taking 1 gram daily of Camu-Camu, she had no occurrence for over a year before she experienced another outbreak. Then later, none at all.

Couples problem on having a baby? Here’s the good news!

Lepidium meyenii

Here’s the natural way to solve your problems. Couples often excited to have a baby, but sometimes age and health are the common reasons why they fail to have one.

The good news! MACA will help you to solve your problem.

Maca root (Lepedium Meyenii)

Contains essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and sterols that help uplift your mood, fight fatigue, revitalize desires and strengthen your energy naturally. To establish and maintain a healthy and loving family, MACA Power is an organic dietary supplement designed for dads and moms and the growing teenagers.


Maca is a root that grows in the high mountains of Peru. Rich in nutritional content (potassium, and higher levels of calcium than in milk), it is a natural hormonal balancer which provides great health benefits for both, men and women.

The real organic Maca Lepidium

There are many various kinds of Maca on the (international) market. For instance, Maca from Chile or Bolivia and even synthetic Maca. Only the real organic Maca that grows at more than 3000 metres in the Peruvian Andes has all the positive effects that are described in scientific research. The official name is Lepidium Peruvianum Chacón or Maca Lepidium Meyenii. You can buy this Maca from 1Goal International Corporation.

Scientific research into Maca

Maca is not a discovery of modern science. It is made from a natural root crop that grows high up in the Peruvian Andes. The root has been well known for its healing properties for thousands of years. Scientific research has only uncovered the special action of this root in the last fifteen years. You take two to three tablets every day spread equally throughout the day. Some people feel the effects of Maca in their body after just two days.

The nutritional value of Maca powder is high. Maca is rich in essential minerals, especially selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, and includes these three fatty acids; linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, as well as polysaccharides. Maca’s reported beneficial effects for sexual function could be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients.

Maca is an Adaptogen…

An adaptogen is a substance which raises the non-specific resistance in an organism.

• Adaptogens enable the body to enhance its power of resistance and adapt to external conditions.

• They work with the body’s natural rhythms to help rebuild weak immune systems, re-mineralize poorly nourished bodies, and increase energy and endurance.

Maca: The Endocrine Adaptogen!

The endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce chemical “messengers” called hormones essential for normal bodily functions. A wide variety of physiological processes are carried out unconsciously by these “messengers”. Once released they flow directly into the bloodstream and are transported to organs and tissues throughout the entire body.

Scientists and doctors are now finding maca to be one of the best natural ways to regulate and support endocrine health. This action regulates metabolism, energy levels, growth, sexual development and the sense of well being and attitude.

Thankfully, maca does not contain hormones itself. Instead it provides a unique set of nutrients that directly fuel the endocrine system and help the glands to produce vital hormones in precise dosages predetermined by one’s own body.

So why does maca make you feel so good?

As an adaptogen, maca works broadly to contribute to overall well being. It nourishes and calms the nerves with calcium, phosphorus, vitamins B1 and B12 , and fatty acids, all of which work beneficially on the nervous system. It stimulates the appetite and aids in digestion with calcium, vitamins B1 and B2, B12, and fatty acids. Its phosphorus is a primary building block in the cell fuels Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and glucose-6-phosphate (G6P).

At the same time it supports the adrenal glands so they don’t have to rely on damaging corticol to fuel the body. Its sterols, calcium, and vitamin C help build muscle mass and its starches aid in physical endurance. Its alkaloids help the body assimiliate all these nutrients just where they are required.


Maca and Osteoporosis

Bones are at their thickest and strongest in early adulthood, from 35 onwards more bone mass cells are lost than replaced this causes the bones to become thinner, people who remain active and exercise are less likely to get osteoporosis. Nutrition plays an important part in preventing osteoporosis,many peoples diets contain refined food with no nutritional value, again they can be nutrient deficient. Maca can offer high levels of minerals and calcium, needed for strong bones, it is used in Peru and many other parts of the world to treat and prevent osteoporosis.


Osteoporosis (brittle bones) women are at greater risk of osteoporosis due to the falling level of oestrogen that occurs when they go through the menopause, oestrogen is essentionl for healthy bones.


The male hormone testosterone also keeps the bones healthy men continue to produce this hormone into old age, but the risk increases for men with low level of testosterone.


Athletes around the world are starting to notice this root. It is in fact, a great source of energy. Research proves that as a result of hormonal balancing it also supports and helps restore the adrenal glands, which produce adrenaline. So, if you are looking for a healthy and nutritional product to boost your energy and improve endurance, maca is definitely for you!.

Sex & Libido

Maca is recommended for fertility problems, sterility, and other sexual disorders. However, in Peru it has long been known as a potent APHRODISIAC. Research has proven that it acts on certain areas of the body that produce hormones and energizing substances, which enhance libido and increase virility.

It is also often compared to Viagra®; however, Peruvian Maca does not alter circulation. Its amazing libido booster is a result of completely natural hormonal balancing. It is a safe natural product that will improve your marriage, love and sexual life by boosting your libido and stamina, and by producing a general sense of well being!.

Menopause Symptoms

Are you going through uncomfortable mood swings and frustrating hot flashes? Are you having sleep difficulties? Maca is a natural and healthy alternative to dramatically ease your symptoms during peri-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause.

Low or High levels of estrogen are a common problem to many women, which bring frustrating consequences to their health. Maca root will dramatically fix these problems. It acts as a hormonal regulator that will bring your body to its proper balance. As a result, it will alleviate menopausal and painful menstrual symptoms. What’s more, it will increase your energy, reduce your stress, and even help you overcome depression. Get rid of hot flashes now! You won’t be disappointed; all benefits are achieved in a very healthy way, and are only a result of natural hormonal balancing.


Peru’s Dr. Chacon surmised that maca works through the hypothalamus pituitary axis. the needed link between the pituitary gland and the brain. The pituitary gland then makes hormones in answer to the body’s needs. These are then circulated in the blood to a variety of the body’s tissues, including other endocrines, such as the adrenal gland.

The Adrenal Glands

The adrenal glands produce hormones that help control the heart rate, blood pressure, the way the body uses food, and other vital functions. ACTH hormone from the pituitary gland stimulates the adrenal cortex to produce glucocorticoids.

Thyroid & Parathyroid Glands

The Thyroid gland controls the rate at which the body produces energy from nutrients. The alkaloid extract of maca can activate calcitonine hormones, which regulate the metabolism of calcium (Ca) and phosphorus (P) in the blood. The hormone is secreted by the thyroid and the parathyroid. It acts in the intestines, bones, and kidneys to increase the (Ca2+) in the plasma. It also aids in wound healing through blood clotting. (Chacon)


The pancreas gland secretes digestive enzymes which break down fats, carbohydrates, proteins, and acids.


Maca contains vitamin C and trace elements of zinc, which aid the immune system function of the thymus gland. Part of maca’s adaptogenic value may be its ability to enhance the thymus’ cell mediated immunity.


The ovaries lie on either side of the uterus and just below the opening to the fallopian tubes. In addition to producing eggs, or “ova”, the ovaries produce female sex hormones called estrogen and progesterone.

Pituitary Gland

Maca’s alkaloids act on the hypothalamus-pituitary axis causing gender appropriate responses in respective gonadal functions.


Maca has been shown to increase male libido and sperm production in studies.

  1. Turn Off the Aging Clock and Extend Your Longevity – Trans-Resveratrol- It’s a molecule so tiny it penetrates the wall of almost any cell in a body.  It continues into the cell nucleus, up to the cell’s genetic machinery. There Resveratrol selectively switch on genes that aid the survival of an organism, which is Sirtuin 1 DNA-repair gene.  Using gene silencing, it switches off genes involved in the initiation and progression of disease, blocking replication of bacteria, viruses, fungi and tumor cells. It slows the onset of virtually all of the aging diseases
  2. Increase your Energy and Strength – Taps into your body’s natural life-giving force, unleashing vitality, energy, strength and stamina. It can literally add years to your life.
  3. Look and Feel Younger – Your body’s 10 trillion cells are under constant attack   by    free   radicals.  These harmful environmental agents can accelerate aging by destroying vital body cells faster than they can be replaced.  Resveratrol is known to be the most powerful antioxidant depends against premature aging, fighting free radical damage throughout the body.
  4. Strengthen Your Heart –  It helps to maintain the strength and integrity of coronary arteries.

Barbara B. and daughter        Natchez, Mississippi

“Thirty years ago I broke a kneecap which has given me trouble ever since.  After two weeks of taking Resveratrol, I noticed a big change in my knee; it was not tight feeling anymore!  It seems like my knee has been lubricated. 3 months later, I put my daughter on resveratrol as she has had infected toenails for 2 years.

However, after 3 weeks of taking Resveratrol she had a completely well toe for the first time.” (March 1999)

Skin Cancer

I had skin cancer removed from my chest, but still had spots on my face, nose,ears and shoulder. After taking one and a half bottles of  Graviola, the marks have faded and shrunk quite noticeably. I had blemishes on my hands which have cleared up. I am a very happy man and will continue using a maintenance dose to hopefully prevent any more problems with my skin.

Went to the doctor back in February 3rd, 2005 my PSA reading was a high of 26 down from 32. I\’m very, very happy to say taht I took another PSA reading May 29th, 2005 and my PSA was 0.6. Yes, I almost fell out of the chair. I owe it all to  Graviola Extract. To say the least my doctor was very happy and suprise that it was that low. I will be taking another reading sometime in July to see if it still low. I feel so much better, physically and mentally. It feels so great knowing I don\’t have to take chemo. Thanks to Graviola Extract. Take it now for preventatives reasons…

My name is Peter and on Aug. 9, 2004 I found out that I had Lymphoma Cancer. During the next 6 months I had 8 chemo treatments, I also found out about Graviola and started to take it at the same time. At one time the Doctor wanted to increase the Chemo dosage but due to conditions couldn’t. Since my last treatment I have had 3 scans and all have shown no signs of Cancer. I still take the Graviola and the Immune Boom, which is a Lymphatic booster cleaner, every day to stay fit. I am now back to work full time and feel quite well. I think that the Graviola and Immune Boom played a big part in my recovery. Thank you for introducing me to the product.

Cervical Cancer

I am writing to submit my testimonial and the experience I’ve just recently gone through with Graviola. In August of 2004 I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. I began the steps of tests and trips to the specialist to see how they wanted to treat the disease. After my first visit to Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto they were getting me prepared for radiation and chemotherapy. I felt like the wind was knocked out of my sails. A couple of weeks after my diagnosis, my father gave me some information and some Graviola to try. I felt why not, it can’t hurt, it’s all natural, it comes from God’s great earth so it can’t be all that bad. I noticed within a day or so my energy level had increased and I felt much stronger physically. When I went for my MRI in November the Doctors basically said that I had a very bazaar type of cervical cancer and they wanted to treat it aggressively. The MRI showed that I had a cancerous tumor and that it was showing growth within my lymph nodes. The decision was made to remove the cancerous tumor surgically. They booked me for a radical hysterectomy right away. Prior to my surgery I continued to take the Graviola. The surgery went well and they were able to remove the tumor. The pathology reports after the surgery showed that the tumor had shrunk extensively and that they were showing NO CANCEROUS activity in the lymph nodes. My response to this was overwhelming as you can imagine. This is a direct result of the GRAVIOLA and the many people praying on my behalf. Hope this helps someone make the right decision and try this product.

It saved my life, I continue to take this product for preventative reasons. Strong and cancer free !!

Skin Cancer

I was diagnosed with Melanoma skin cancer in April, 04. I had surgery on my ear to remove the cancer and they warned me that it would return. In November, I heard about Graviola and began taking it. Soon afterward, my doctor examined me and found cancerous nodes in my neck. I was booked for a radical neck dissection in Feb.05. Meanwhile I continued taking Graviola and Immune Boom as well. To the surgeon`s surprise, the cancer was reduced to one lymph gland only, so had not spread and the surgery was much shorter than expected. Also, the Oncologist in London was very surprised that I only stayed in hospital for 3 days and had a quick recovery with no infection ! They asked me to stop all supplements, including Graviola and Immune Boom for 2 weeks prior to surgery. I noticed a marked difference. During that time my energy level dropped dramatically and I felt mentally down. After surgery, I resumed my Graviola and Immune Boom and immediately felt much better, physically and mentally ! The Oncologist in Kitchener talked about radiation, but the surgeon said I didn`t need it. I feel so much better now and have my quality of life back thanks to Graviola and Immune Boom.

I’m not very good at writing testimonials but, will give it a try. I started taking Graviola Extract in January, have been on it for a month now and can feel the difference in my body. Went to the doctor on February 3rd, 2005 for my PSA reading and found out that it has fallen from a high of 31 to a low of 26. To say the least my doctor was very happy with that. I’m also feeling fine, full of energy and in a good mood since started taking Graviola Extract. Thank you for all your help and support. Today I just ordered 3 more bottles.

I have Lymphoma and have to go to Toronto for 8 more radiation treatments. My blood was so low last week that I needed several transfusions. After each radiation treatment I`d feel so nauseated and weak I couldn`t eat. I lost weight and have pain and stiff legs from the radiation. I can feel several lumps on my legs. I was introduced to Graviola, well, I was desperate, I decided to try it immediately. I started Graviola once a day [because of the nausea] and Immune Boom 3 times a day. Three days later, I took a radiation treatment and had no nausea. I was even able to return home and have some stew with my friends. This was a FIRST! I’m feeling better and have some more energy. Now I can increase my Graviola and won’t have to dread the remaining treatments! Others can’t believe the difference a few days of Graviola and Immune boom have made!

I lost my wife to cancer 1 ½ years ago. Last summer I wasn’t well. One day as I was driving alone I found myself struggling to breathe, so drove straight to the hospital. They admitted me immediately and discovered that I had pneumonia and also a large tumor in my right lung. Later that day, I was so weak I couldn’t even sit up without support. They wanted to operate and start chemo but I refused. The doctors thought I was in pretty bad shape. I decided to try Graviola for the Cancer and have been taking the extract 5 times a day since Oct. 12th. Last week I went to my family doctor and he was shocked that I looked so well. He examined me and was amazed that I could breathe so much better and wasn’t losing weight. Even more amazing is the fact that, at 74, I still get up at 5am and start work at 6am-often working 10-11 hours a day at my gas station. Also, every winter for the past 20 years I`d get scabs on my earlobe that were diagnosed as cancer. I`d pick them off and cause bleeding and they`d always grow back. Since taking Graviola , I no longer get the scabs forming. My ear is so clean, even with this last cold spell. I am so glad I began on Graviola and an immune booster as well. I feel better, have more energy and can breathe better than I have for the past 2 years. In January I`ll be tested again so we`ll see what the doctors think then.

Hi, I’m a 26 years old mother of 3 children. One year ago, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer at level 3 stage 2. My treatment included 2 injections of freezing that were ineffective, 2 sessions of external radiation lasting 6 weeks each and 2 sessions of internal radiation using rods. During this time I kept losing weight, lost my appetite and was badly burned from the radiation. I got kidney damage as well. I went down to 80 pounds then they stopped the last session of radiation and cancelled the upcoming chemo. I could hardly get out of bed and spent all my time on the couch. My husband quit his job to look after me. I was off radiation for over a month when I began taking Graviola. I have been on the Graviola for 3 weeks now, I am up and about and my energy has improved dramatically. I can even go out shopping for an hour, got my appetite back and have gained 10 pounds. I feel a lot better, a 100% better, I feel a lot less pain and sleep better since taking Graviola. I can smile again!

I’m most grateful for Graviola !
