It won't hurt you, it's another one of the natural juices that basically has lots of
natural vitamins in it that will not do your system any harm.
As for any specific claims well that's another story.

to my knowledge it's often compared to mangosteen or wolfberry juices all 3 of which  are basically fruit juices  high in antioxidants ...... some say "ick, too expensive" others say "worth every dime"

it'd be nice if you 'd give  your opinion here later on on if it helps you feel good and if you feel it's worth the price

Steven is correct, there r natural vitamins in , there r also enzymes that r biocatalysts important for our metabolism. It contain also prexeronine & proxeroninase that helps fabricate xeronine who plays an important role in the construction & functioning of cells in the body.

Besides what allopathicholistic say about it being expensive, it taste horrible too : like rotten cheese , said 1 of my clients. It's something new, everybody must have it , it's chic.

If u eat 5 different type of fruits a day of different colours, u will be fine. Just go into the market & see what's in season, eat those first, then worse come to worse, stick to apples. U r saving on all these packeting, market & shops that need to take their cut.

U said u just discovered , have u taken it yet, or u just posting to check it out here on AM??
If u want to try, go ahead, good luck but buy the smallest bottle first :P u may be surprised about the taste.

Personally I love mangosteen juice.  I could drink the whole bottle in 5 minutes but then that's just me.  For people who can not go out and get fresh fruits or veggies then the alternative is to try things like the juices to give your body the extra vitamins.  As for me I can go out in the fields during the summer and pick just about any kind of fresh fruits or berries and since I have a green thumb I can turn most places into a summertime garden and have my own food without any chemicals.

Hello Newone,

 I prefer pomaganate Juice. I buy it from the bulk warehouse. Runs about $17.00 a bottle for 32 ounces.

It says one ounce is equivalent to eating 15 pomegranates. So, I mix once once, with 8 ounces of unsweetened apple juice. The bottle last me a month. And it doesn't taste bad.

I'm with you on that JRE....I buy pomagante juice as well and it taste really good.  I hear it is also good for you because of the antioxidents in it. 

Hey JRE, where is this warehouse you talk about?

Yeah, that's a little expensive luxory I allow myself. 100% pomegranate juice,it's pricey but I have convinced myself the benefits outweigh the cost. Sometimes I do a 100% cranberry-pom mix. Delightful on the rocks with a splash of a very healthy Russian Vodka.

Cheers,
Hal

The question regarding juices such Pomegrante, Noni, Mangosteen invovles more than just antioxidents. The question to answer is do they alkalize the body. There are proponents of the theory that disease is basically the body becoming too acidic. I know that sounds simplistic but I've come to learn that it's the simple things that often are where the answers to things are found. My younger brother died of AIDS in 1987 and I sure do wish he'd tried more of the alternative methods back then. Of course the only drug then was AZT. I'd like to add another juice to the list. Himalayan Goji. It's the only juice researched by Dr. Earl Mindell who literally wrote "The Vitamin Bible" and now has published "The Vitamin Bible for the 21st Century" . Goji has been used in the Hiimalayas for 3000 years treating all sorts of illnesses. If you'd like to know more just send me a pm and I'll be happy to chat with you.

There is a really hot , tall guy , always in shorts that is out promoting it in my neighborhood, of course I bought it. I didn't think much of it. My love is cranberry juice , not the slop by oceanspray but the real stuff, you need to add water to or your gums dissolve into your mouth . I tried some pomegranate juices but have yet to find one that isn't so sweet- then again maybe I should add vodka?
Cheers
