“Three years ago I had a gastric sleeve. One of the side effects (years later) is with the digestive system. Miralax and Metamucil were not helping anymore, and the pain associated with it was horrible. I suffered a lot of bloating.

I started drinking Burn+Control Coffee and LeanGreen Tea a year ago, and it helped me get off 14 medications. My high blood pressure is down. My fatty liver enzymes normal. My high blood pressure normal. And it had been a battle.

Well, I was not prepared for what the ActiveBlendz Fiber would mean to me. It’s amazing.”


“I have had no more digestive bloating or pain …
56383060_XSI have had no need of Metamucil and Miralax.  And for the first time in three years, my body is now regular in just one week !!!  
It completely blows my mind to have such an amazing result in one week !!! I’m so excited can’t wait to see my results in 90 days.”  ~Sandra #‎homerun‬ ‪#‎anothersatsifiedcustomer‬ ‪#‎activeblendzfiber‬ ‪#‎changinglives‬

jenna s“Since I started drinking my ActiveBlendz Fiber with water and Burn+Control  weight loss Coffee, I have now not only lost a significant amount of inches around my waist (hello belly fat was the biggest problem for me after having 3 kids in 2 1/2 years) but when people see me now they compliment me on how much younger I look as well. My skin has never looked this clear and My energy level and my focus has never been greater.

They say you can’t put a price tag on great health. This has never been more important to me as it is now. Looking good on the outside is great, but being healthy from the inside out is where I put my value and put my money on. Cheers to healthy eating and drinking, and Looking the Best you’ve ever been!”

sunset-successconcept“I’m feeling amazeballs this morning!!!! At age 15 I had spinal fusion surgery to correct a serve case of scoliosis. The fusion is in the lowest part of the spine, L1-l-4, just above the tailbone.

Due to the fusion, my hips are consistently out of place and pop, I sleep mainly on my sides so mornings are pretty painful. Last night, at Tamara’s tasting I drank a FLEX in hopes of having an amazing morning.

Proof is in the FLEX. I’m up, moving and my back and hips aren’t hurting! Thank you Javita once again for changing my life!!!!!!” -Mindy G.

When I drink my FLEX, the inflammation in the joints go down quite a bit. Since I take a blood thinner, my 12115586_1152734714756255_545426734232346965_nmedication is limited this is why drinking FLEX works wonders for me. Thank you Javita!” ~Cheri D.

I Won’t Go a Day Without My Flex! Posted on Mar 21st, 2016 in (Flex)

I Won’t Go a Day Without My Flex!“My entire life, I have beaten up my body. As a young kid, I was actively into skateboarding (semi-pro). During that time, I broke both wrists several times and battered and bruised myself because I felt indestructible.

Then, if that wasn’t enough, from late teens to late twenties I moved on from skateboarding to ATV riding. I rode race bikes and loved to ride hard and do tricks. Obviously, this was not good for the body. I still had the mentality that I was indestructible.

Well now into my late 30’s my body has had enough. I woke up every morning with cricks and cracks from every joint in my body. Then, early 2015 I hurt my back, just by picking up a garbage can, I decided I waSasquatch Junk Removal ever since.

Went to the doctor to find out that I am not indestructible. I had blown out L4 and L5 in my back and needed surgery. November 11, 2015 I went into surgery. Recovery was slow and painful, but then in December 2015 my wife came home with this product “Javita Flex” and she want me to try because she said it would help with my joints.

As a man, of course, I was skeptical, plus she had tried to give me other products before for my aches and pains but none of them worked.

But to make my wife happy, I went ahead and tried it. After 3 or 4 days of taking the activeblendz Flex, I was really noticing a difference. My cricks and cracks were not so noticeable anymore and my lower back pain was less intense.

At this point, I knew I had to keep taking it. I have now been taking the Flex for two months and couldn’t feel better. This product is just so simple anyone can do it. I was so impressed, I told my wife that we have to become members of Javita. My wife now calls me a Javita snob because I won’t go a day without my Flex.”

What a wonderful story about a life transformed…

Blanca's son 3

“This weekend marks a year that our youngest went into his 2nd diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and we were threatened by the treating physician that she was getting ready to refer us to CPS for medical neglect. Those are words I never thought I would hear. Our son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 9. This was hard because we were already dealing with ADHD and the whole medication stuff. The saddest question your child could ask is “Why can’t I be normal?”

When Javita came out with FocusFusion Cocoa, I immediately went to Stan and gave him a big hug with tears coming down my face and thanked him for introducing a healthy alternative for our son’s ADHD without compromising his blood sugar levels. He was now 12 and had been dealing with T1D for 3 years and we were off meds (30 mg of Adderall), we were off to a great start.

Then a year later we are in the hospital with our 2nd episode of DKA within a 3 months period. Adolescence is hard enough without having to add the complications of diabetes. The first episode his blood sugar spiked to 696. It was scary. The second time his blood sugars weren’t as high at 396, but his bicarbonate was bad. His heart rate was high again but this time it was much worse. We tried to have our son drink green tea, but it was hard. He knew the benefits it had, but he wasn’t consistent.

In 2015 Javita’s ActiveBlendz drinks were made available to the public and I thanked God for giving the team the knowledge and wisdom to come up with this line. I heard the benefits of ActiveBlendz Control and Defend and was blown away. Again I went straight to Stan and hugged him with tears.

Our son’s A1c went from 11 down to about 7 (pending bloodwork results). His insulin intake has gone from 75 units per day to 55. My son drinks 2 ActiveBlendz Defends everyday and an occasional ActiveBlendz Control. He has survived the cold and flu season and the worry of him going into DKA are minimal. Thank you Javita for ActiveBlendz Defend.” ~Blanca N.

After only a month of drinking Flex, this supermom is medication-free, feeling better than ever and running full speed after her 8-month-old son.  Here’s Crystal’s story in her own words …

“I’ve had issues with severe arthritis since I was 17, and now I’m almost 22 and have hardly any cartilage left in my knees so I’m sure you can only imagine how much worse it’s gotten.

That being said, I was on medication BUT had to quit when my insurance ended. Ever since, I’ve been searching for something to help. I had days where I can’t even walk let alone MOVE. BUT I’ve been drinking FLEX since about the middle of September, and have actually felt that best I’ve ever left.

Crystal CAs a 21-year-old, you don’t expect to not be able to chase your 8-month-old like someone way older than you can. I was always so upset that other people could stay chasing little man while I had to sit and watch.

Well thank you Flex, because now I’m better than ever and RUNNING full speed after my little wild child! I’d still be so lost and sad without my FLEX! Plus medicine is not even needed anymore which is the second best part right after being a super mom.” ~Crystal C.

The science for ActiveBlendz Flex is sound, but what gets us really excited are notes like this about the difference each little packet is making in the lives of our Members and Customers. Finally, pain relief and joint health never stated so good!

“My husband played college basketball till he suffered knee & joint pain years ago. Coupled with his profession as a Manager Sushi Chef, better days are rare as far as shoulder, knee & joint pain are concerned.

D.Alverez

Pain relievers, massage oils, elevation can only do little relief & I felt helpless watching my husband go through the daily grind with this condition.When FLEX became a part of his daily beverage,

I personally noticed a HUGE change! It’s been a month since he started playing ball again, this time with our boys. To quote my man, “My shoulder pain & ‘clicking’ knee sound are gone, discomfort is gone, overall no more pain.. I can now play basketball again, my life is back!” FLEX works!” Katherine Michelle D.

Wonderful update from Christine P regarding her husband Micheal’s results with ActiveBlendz Flex…

michael“Micheal has been on medicine (long term) due to chronic pain. He has been a paraplegic since 1979, which brought its own struggles and pain, but a couple years ago he developed Osteomyelitis in his left hip. He spent 178 days in the hospital and rehab. He had 5 surgeries and developed a chronic non healing wound. He had one more surgery last September and another week in the hospital. He came home but on lots of new medication. He was so tired all the time and he still had pain. He decided he wanted to try and kick some of these heavy duty pain meds and we were warned it would be tough. *he did discuss his plan with his family doctor.*

Michael thinks he’s not a tough guy, but he really is. He never complains. So WE made a plan to start cutting back, and he started drinking the FLEX once a day as he slowly decreased two of the three things he takes daily. Just decreasing a dose or two a day I COULD SEE A DIFFERENCE right away! He bumped the FLEX up to 2 a day and within 4 weeks as of tonight…. completely off two highly addictive pain meds. He is down from 16 pills a day to 2. He feels so much better and he is dealing with the withdrawal symptoms ok. He says the flex seems to help with those and that’s why he drinks twice a day.

We are both so happy and so thankful for this amazing product. I wouldn’t be surprised if the collagen doesn’t help with healing his wound, we purchase collagen at all times; however, on this particular situation I don’t know if it will work. That’s my hope anyway and I will keep you posted on that.” ~Christine

Nothing is more satisfying than a happy ending, especially when it involves a child. Check out this note from a very happy mom…

nathan“I just wanted to share how amazing Javita Flex is. My son Nathan sprained his right wrist last Wednesday in school.

The school nurse advised to immobilize it first. So we bought him a Splint wrist brace. He’d been in so much pain that I considered taking him to the hospital for an X-Ray.

But I decided to let him drink our Javita Flex instead. The next morning he woke up with no pain, can move his hand & he’s so happy. Thanks Javita!”

use-this-one-e1462892046822-200x200FLEXMy name is Cristina Ekholm. I am 32 years old, a Licensed and Board Certified Massage Therapist, and have a background in nursing as well. I currently work as a Massage Therapist and own my own massage business. My husband and I have been married 9 years and have 2 beautiful daughters, 8 and 2, and live in Osceola, Wisconsin.

My story began 20 years ago when I was in 7th grade. It was October, 16, 1995, it was a typical school day for me. Half way through my day, I got the worst headache of my life (or so I thought at that point). I ended up leaving school right after lunch and going home and throwing up 3 times due to the pain and severity of the headache. When I got up the next day the headache was still there and I had new symptoms, the worst throbbing, aching pain through my whole body and extreme fatigue. The next day when I woke, it was all still there and the next day, and the next day, etc.

Two months after the headaches started I was diagnosed with chronic everyday headaches by a Children’s Neurologist at St. Paul Neurology. Just so that I am clear, these headaches are not tension headaches, migraine headaches, or cluster headaches. The headache is there all day every day and no one knows why. At that point, I was put on several different types of medications, had many, many tests done, including blood work, allergies, CT scans, MRIs, and even a spinal tap. I also saw many different doctors and specialist. Medications did not help, all the tests done came back with no answers, and doctors were puzzled.

By this point, I was very frustrated as well as my family. I was missing tons of school. There were a lot of days I couldn’t even get out of bed due to being in so much pain and feeling like all my energy and life had been sucked out of me. And on top of this, I was not sleeping at night. I could sleep 12 hours a night and get up the next morning and not feel like I slept an hour. People and even some of my family thought I was crazy and that this was all in my head, which frustrated me even more. I became depressed. There were a lot of days I told my mom to put a gun to my head and pull the trigger because I couldn’t take it anymore.

Two years later, in 9th grade at the age of 14, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. This helped give me some hope, because I finally had a name to go with what was plaguing me, but still didn’t explain where the everyday headaches were coming from. I began seeing a Rheumatologist, and was put on a bunch of other medications that did absolutely nothing. I tried to get up and get moving like the doctor said, but it hurt like hell. Imagine your muscles throbbing and aching, and then they feel like they are being pulled and ripped off your bones while being stabbed and hammered with nails, and then add a huge, nauseated headache on top of all that, plus, not being able to sleep. I was told by my doctor for years that I would never be successful in life because I was too lazy, had no drive or motivation to do anything and I didn’t want to do anything.

From the time all this started till I was 17, I was home schooled. I missed out on a lot of activities and events with friends and family. I did have a job and missed a lot of work as well. I was still depressed and frustrated. My mom, dad, and 2 sisters felt completely helpless. My mom missed a lot of work. I isolated myself to my room most the time and kept to myself.

Before beginning my senior year of high school, I finally decided that the headaches and Fibromyalgia were not going to control my life any more. I wanted to go to Nursing and Massage school. I knew this would not be easy, but I had to do it for me.

I started weaning myself off all medications. I became more active and yes, it hurt like hell, but I did it. When my senior year of high school came, my mom enrolled me in an Alternative Learning Program for school. I also became my great grandmother’s caretaker during this time, as well as working a job. I graduated high school early and was enrolled in nursing school the following fall.

Since then, I graduated Nursing and Massage school. This was a challenge, extremely hard, and difficult to say the least, but I did it! Along the way, there have been good days and bad days. I learned to control my symptoms as best I could with diet, exercise, massage, chiropractic, and knowing my triggers. No doctors and no medications. The headaches and widespread throbbing pain through my body is still there all day every day, as well as sleepless nights and chronic fatigue. I typically would miss 3 to 5 days of work a month due to the severity of pain and the headaches as well as being an active parent in my children’s life during that time. My husband would have to take on double duty. My mom would come and take care of my kids and I when needed while my husband was at work. This made me feel guilty and frustrated because I couldn’t do my share and be a wife or a mother. I learned to accept the fact that this was my way of life because in all reality, I didn’t know any different. So, I just learned to deal with it the best I could.

In November 2015, I was introduced to Javita and my life changed again. I have to admit I was very skeptical at first. But then, I tried the Flex and less than 30 minutes later, I felt some relief. In all the things I have done and tried over the years, nothing worked like this. My headaches were a lot better as well as my chronic, throbbing pain in my body. I didn’t feel like my muscles were being ripped off of my bones. I was taking Flex every day and it helped. Then, I went to a Super Saturday event in January 2016 in Bloomington, MN and heard Katie’s story and how she was drinking the FocusFusion Cocoa to help with her headaches. That day I came home and started drinking the cocoa as well.

Within 2 days, my headaches and throbbing pain in my body was almost down to nothing. I have way more energy and am feeling the best I have felt in 20 years. Plus, I am sleeping a lot better at night and get up in the morning and feel rested. I continue to drink the cocoa every morning…I mix it in with my chocolate protein shake for breakfast. I have come to love the Energy +Mind coffee as well, and it helps me in the same way as the cocoa. I never drank coffee before, but I love this stuff. If I feel a headache starting to creep up on me during the day, I take a Flex and within 20 minutes it takes that headache right back down to almost nothing.

Javita has been the miracle in my life I have been waiting for. It has not just changed my life, but my family’s life as well. Since drinking Javita, I have not missed one day of work or one day in my children’s life. I am thankful, blessed, and honored for Javita being a part of my life. Thank you to all those who made this possible in my life. Go Javita!

How Javita Gave Me Back My Life
Posted on Jul 14th, 2016 in Testimonials

How Javita Gave Me Back My Life

I remember two years ago, when I had to work really, really hard to force myself to take the 150 step walk around my apartment building, and friends and my ex bf had to help me walk my dog, Sasha, because my mobility was so incredibly limited.  

After multiple falls due to POTS syndrome and a hospitalization because of heart concerns, I was feeling defeated at 32 years old.

I’ve attached a count from my fitness tracker.  I’ve reached this many steps (or more) for quite a while now, without actually trying.

Over 6,000 steps regularly with zero effort, versus 150 steps that required me to take a lengthy break and do ankle exercises.

My life has become more active, because my health and wellness have improved so significantly.

In the summer of 2015, I had to stop my doctoral program, because I couldn’t walk from handicapped parking to my class on the second floor about a quarter mile away. The debilitating pain from fibromyalgia, and partial paralysis in the left half of my body due to the repeated falls, made getting out of bed and going to work to do my job that I love, often an insurmountable task.

I found myself withdrawing from everything I enjoyed doing, the people I love, and in constant conflict because I was in so much pain.

Now I find myself walking extra, to everywhere, as often as possible, and rarely sitting down. My tv time has decreased, my time spent online has decreased, and I feel HAPPY almost all of the time. I’ve been keeping up with my friends’ two little toddlers (2/4), by taking them on puppy walks and swimming while I’ve been helping out with babysitting this summer.

I tried my Javita products to lose weight, but I gained my life back, and I’ve not felt this confident in myself for at least three or more years.

My confidence doesn’t come from having lost a crazy amount of weight, but from overcoming what I thought was a life sentence of a sedentary and pain-filled life–from requiring a handicapped parking placard at 33 years old.

I wake up in the morning, and I just get out of bed, eager to do what I need to do. Most days, I only drink the coffee, because I like the taste of it in my protein shake, and not because I need the caffeinated pick-me-up I used to crave from other coffees. The only fatigue I’m feeling, is because I’ve been going non-stop since I’ve awakened every day.

image1

The first picture is me on the first day of grad school for my doctorate. I donned an ankle brace for more than 16 months (yes, that’s accurate) starting in early November 2014 until April of 2015.  At that point I just stopped wearing even my small ankle brace, because I was tired of hearing about how long I’d been wearing it.

The second picture is me after using Javita for only five-six weeks, on New Year’s Day of 2016.  It was the first hike I’d been able to take in more than three years. It was a beautiful moment for me to get back a piece of my soul by having the strength to commune with nature and be in the mountains. I honestly hiked to my favorite cove on the trail, listened to the wake of the boats crash to the shore, and cried tears of gratitude for getting my life back.

Despite my progress, after that New Years Day Hike, I still had a fibro flare that lasted several days.

Now, after using Javita products for the past seven and a half months, it has officially my been at least two full months without a major flare-up. That’s incredibly significant, because from December 18, 2015 until Spring 2016, I was down at minimum three days per week with fibromyalgia pain that was so intrusive, even showering was difficult on those days.

Javita’s FLEX was a complete game-changer for my life, and I was able to eliminate all pain medicine from my fibromyalgia maintenance regimen. I went from more than a dozen prescriptions monthly, to two, one of the remaining is a lifelong anti-coagulation treatment. Some of the medications for instance my migraine medicine, I’d been on for at least seven years.

I honestly cannot believe how dramatically my entire life has changed, just because I changed what I was drinking. The mental acuity I’ve gained from being out from under so many prescriptions is absolutely astounding. I had no idea that by asking a long-lost college friend about “delicious weight loss flavored water” on Facebook, I would not only reconnect with friends all across the country, but that I would get all of my product free every month, and make additional income as well.

Javita has a lifelong customer/member in me. If the secret to feeling joyful, capable, confident, clear-headed, and active is drinking my Javita products, well, honestly–I’m never going to stop.

I’m so thankful that Javita put the life (vita) back into me. It’s great to feel my own age again, instead of feeling like a much older, broken-down, jalopy-version of myself.

Blessings come in surprising ways. In my case, it’s in what I drink. I feel exuberant.

Love,
Annika
