Wow, what a response to our personal experience regarding the results our little boy has enjoyed from taking our mangosteen product. We've had phone calls and email enquiries and would like to thank you all for your wonderful support.
There are so many reasons we've found that the mangosteen juice can help our ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) son ... one of the main ones is the normalising effect it has on his intestinal flora - ie. helping the "good" bacteria and depleting the "bad" ones in the gut.
We now realize from further discussion with several of you that we should share a word of caution - As the "bad" bacteria get knocked out, they can give off some nasty toxins which can have a nasty short-term affect. This is called the "die-off" effect and generally occurs/starts somewhere between day 3 and 10.
On 1 ounce (30ml) a day, it shouldn't be a problem but if someone reports that the child's behaviour and how they look is improving and then suddenly deteriorates sometime after day 3 (e.g. develop (more) hyperactivity & dark circles under the eyes, then it may be because of this "die-off" effect. It's our understanding that this is a sign you're on the right track, but just cut back the dose or spread it out over multiple doses during the day during this period. Our little boy came through this "die-off" with flying colors.
Please be sure to consult your 'good' doctor when introducing anything new to your child's treatment
