On August 6, 2007, Ruby was diagnosed with a liver disease known as chirrosis. The news was shocking and the symptoms that followed after her diagnose came so sudden. She began to develop ascites (a build up of fluid in the abdominal cavity). Fluid drainage was performed twice while she was still her happy-go-lucky self. As time went on, the level of albumin in her blood was no longer able to be controlled by medications. On October 17, 2007 she took a turn for the worse and died in my husband's arms. She was brought back through the use of mouth-to-nose resuscitation and CPR.  She was rushed to her doctor at 2:30am where she was laid to rest. I am thankful to have had a second chance to say good-bye and stay with her until the end.

We believe her illness extended from the build up of eleated levels of toxic metals, such as copper, that can be found in our tap water. Old corroded copper plumbing systems can be found throughout multiple dwelling buildings and can create unsafe levels of copper in our drinking water. These levels can lead to many illnesses that often get overlooked rather than being diagnosed. And all of this is a result of a build-up of copper and other unsafe metals in our water.

Copper toxicity not only leads to liver chirrosis, it can also cause many physical conditions including, not limited to, tendon pain, joint pain & swelling, arthritis, fatigue, adrenal burnout, insomnia, scoliosis, osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer, migraine headaches, seizures, fungal and bacterial infections including yeast infection, gum disease, tooth decay, skin and hair problems and female organ conditions including uterine fibroids, endometriosis and others.

I encourage you to invest just a few minutes to understand how what happened to Ruby doesn't happen to you.

Animals Need Detox Too!
We are living in a world in which toxins are being introduced at an alarming rate. The toll of chronic heavy metal and chemical build up in our animals' bodies cannot be understated. The levels of toxicity in our food, water, and air via the use of medications, industrial and household chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides is increasing each year. Even organically grown ingredients cannot be protected from this trend and studies have shown there is even an unacceptably high levels of aluminum in many high quality canned pet foods.

While all body systems are compromised, the most dangerous consequences are seen in the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems. Once these systems are impaired, maintaining functional health becomes a constant and often impossible struggle. Some of the proven consequences of body toxicity include almost all degenerative diseases: cancer, premature aging, and compromised immune systems.

Until recently these "low-grade" issues have either been brushed off or treated with pharmaceuticals. Traditional treatment success has been limited and all medicines can cause unwanted side effects.  As more research and data emerge, many mainstream practitioners are concluding that organ toxicity is the major player in this unhappy cycle.

The body is designed to heal and all the mechanisms to help it do that are already in place. Removing toxins and encouraging the activation of natural healing mechanisms is the most basic foundation we can lay for our pets long and happy lives.

What Can Toxins Do To Our Pets?
  • Toxics affect the body by disrupting organs, membranes, cell function and gene expression (cancer)
  • Toxins can interfere with immune function, muscle contraction, energy production and the repairing of bone.
  • The kidneys are particularly vulnerable to heavy metals. When the kidneys get overloaded, the pores in the organ get bigger and salts can no longer be regulated often resulting in kidney failure that often which has a high fatality rate for animals.

Natural Home Cures Free Radicals
Free Radicals:  Omni-present in our food, air and environment and storm our bodies daily. Free radicals (compounds that seek an electron in order to become atomically balanced) attack our cells, stealing electrons from any substances they come in contact with. By removing electrons from healthy compounds, free radicals inflict damage including, not limited to, skin conditions, heart disease and organ failure.

Helping Our Pets Detoxify
One very effective and safe way of removing heavy metals and toxins from the body is through the removal of free radicals. Antioxidants found in Mangosteen are essential in scavenging free radical molecules and protecting and repairing tissues. In this way, they can reduce the damage of infection, inflammation, and slow down the effects of aging. These unique antioxidants refresh and recharge each other, allowing them to do their work over and over again. Mangosteen's high ORAC provides valuable antioxidants supporting our pets system and the human body's endogenous production of these substances.

Natural Home Cures - Antioxidants an·ti·ox·i·dant – n. any substance that inhibits the destructive effects of oxidation:  The whole mangosteen fruit has been shown to contain powerful antioxidants—compounds that inhibit oxidation or reactions promoted by oxygen and peroxides. Antioxidants are highly regarded for their ability to protect the body from the deteriorating effects of free radicals.

Where Are Toxins Found?
Mom: The process of accumulating poisons starts in utero as toxins cross the placental barrier. Then mammalian milk, whether from human to infant or pug mom to pup, continues to channel these substances into young bodies.  

Food and Water: In 42 states, some 260 contaminants were detected in public water supplies, 140 of which were unregulated chemicals! Bottled water is a potential solution, except that 25-30% of it comes from municipal tap systems (environmental working group, National Assessment of Tap Water Quality) Additionally, the plastics from the bottles can leach, contributing endocrine disruptors such as bisphenol A and phthalates.

According to the latest reports released by one of the nation's largest chains of veterinary hospitals, nearly 39,000 cats and dogs were sickened or killed nationwide following pet food-contamination with an industrial chemical. The data, which was released by Banfield, The Pet Hospital, was reportedly compiled from records collected by its more than 615 veterinary hospitals. Melamine, a chemical used to make plastics and fertilizers, was found in more than 100 brands of contaminated pet food that were recalled from the marketplace in Canada and the United States in mid-March 2008. Evidence suggesting a shipment of the ingredient "Rice Protein Concentrate" contained melamine has come to light. Diamond Pet Foods, Natural Balance, Royal Canin and Blue Buffalo have all announced recalls of their products containing this ingredient. The contaminated ingredient is not brown rice; instead, it is "Rice Protein Concentrate".

Air - indoors and outdoors: Billions of tons of chemicals are put into the air every year including pesticides, dioxins, fumes from industrial processing and vehicles, and mercury from coal-fired power plants in the U.S. and traveling the jet stream from Asia and other countries. Amazingly, with as much as we spew into our outdoor air, our indoor air is 10 times more polluted according to the EPA. It is contaminated with off-gassing flame-retardants, formaldehyde, paints, and household building materials. Household dust, which your pet breathes and licks, contains all of these chemicals and more.

Other: Pesticides in fly sprays are extremely toxic while grooming products contain sodium laurel sulfate, phthalates, triclosan and preservatives that go directly on skin and into a pet's internal systems, or are ingested as they clean themselves.

Vaccines may also be a source of heavy metals and other carcinogens such as formaldehyde and aluminum. Phthalates are used to soften plastic, and can be found in feed buckets, pet dishes, animal toys, and in the linings of canned foods destined for both human and animal consumption.
Exposure to antibiotics, cortisone, and almost all other drugs, flea treatments, worming treatments, chemical cleaners in the home, pesticides which find their way into your backyard every time it rains, and airborne pollutants, all result in an assault on your pet's immune system.

How Can Mangosteen Help Your Pet?
Just as Dr. Randy Kidd, DVM, Ph.D observed and stated, "Our world has become laden with toxins, many of which are carcinogens. Our dogs are exposed to an even higher toxic load than we are; their noses are constantly sniffing the ground, where toxins accumulate. We throw even more toxins into the mix every time we use pesticides or medications to kill internal parasites, and when we feed them foods heavy with artificial preservatives, colors, and flavors. By the time they are a few years old, our pets have been so exposed to the plethora of toxins exist in their (and our) world, I think every holistic, long-term health maintenance protocol needs to include an entry period of detoxification.

We couldn't agree more with this statement. We see too often only once disease has set in do people actively search for answers. We intend to change this paradigm and keep our pets and ourselves as healthy as possible for the duration of our lives.

Removing Toxics & Replacing Anti-Oxidants
Combating toxins and the damage they create in their body can be accomplished by

a) Removing the toxins
b) Replacing and boosting network anti-oxidants

One very effective and safe modality for removing toxins from the body is through the use of ingested Mangosteen. Network anti-oxidants are also effective in scavenging free radical molecules and repairing tissues. They can also protect the body from the stress of infection, inflammation and aging; aging is basically the oxidation of tissues and their consequent degeneration. In this way, antioxidants in Mangosteen are an integral part of detoxification.
Pets, similar to humans, exhibit significant genetic diversity, which affects their overall health and nutritional requirements. Only a healthy pet is a happy companion. Keep your pets healthy and happy year-round by taking preventive measures.

Benefits Of Mangosteen When Added To Your Pet's Diet

Boost Your Animal's Immune System To Help Prevent And Fight Diseases
Mangosteen has shown a remarkable ability—when taken in high doses at the onset of a viral infection—to speed up the body's processes and heal viral infections more quickly. When taken as a daily supplement, mangosteen has also proven effective in preventing viral infections altogether.

Fight Harmful Free Radicals
Mangosteen contains catechins, which have been proven to be multiple times more effective against free radicals than the antioxidants vitamin C and vitamin E.

Maintain A Healthy Digestive System And Prevent Liver Diseases
One of the effects of aging is the natural decline in stomach acid. This leads to increased bacteria in the stomach and causes diarrhea, cramping, gas, and malabsorption of nutrients. The rind of the mangosteen is mostly made up of fiber. Fiber pushes waste through the colon more rapidly, preventing constipation and, colon cancer. Fiber can also keep cholesterol in check by removing harmful bile acids.

Help Your Canine Or Feline Friend By Reducing Or Eliminating Arthritis Pain & Inflammation
Chronic inflammation can lead to Type II diabetes, cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease and other deadly diseases. Xanthones in mangosteen naturally fight inflammation at the cellular level by inhibiting COX 2 enzymes. Mangosteen's pain-relieving benefits are helping animals and people all over the world.

I give my older 10-year-old dog, who has joint and stiffness, one capsule with a little peanut better every morning.  After 2 weeks of use he once again runs like the wind, like he used to in his puppy years.  My other 5 year old dog is also consuming your mangosteen for preventive maintenance and shes doing good too.

Maintain A Healthy Endocrine System And Help Prevent Diabetes, Pancreatitis, etc.
Chronic inflammation is one of the leading causes of Type II diabetes. Because mangosteen is a natural anti-inflammatory agent, it may help prevent Type II diabetes. With the ability to lower and regulate blood sugar, decrease appetite, improve energy levels, and decrease the need for hypoglycemic medications.

Prevention Of Cancer
Mangosteen is being researched non-stop for its possible prevention of cancer. Research has shown extracts from the mangosteen fruit inhibit the growth of human leukemia cells and also inhibit the rapid growth of cells that trigger breast cancer, liver cancer, and other gastric and lung cancer cells.

Plus: Improve muscle and bone support, prevent skin conditions, maintain a healthy coat and more.
Pets have the same diseases and illnesses we do. You owe it to them to understand what mangosteen can do for both you and them.
