Embrace the power of purple and the benefits of the blues.

This is what David Grotto, nutritionist and registered dietitian, author of "101 Foods That Could Save Your Life" has to say about the importance of eating fruits such as acai that are high in anthocyanins; “Add purple-blue foods to your diet - dried plums, raisins, eggplant, acai, beans (aduki), concord grapes, elderberries, potatoes, red cabbage. They are rich in plant chemicals such as anthocyanins and polyphenols, which have been found to aid in:

- Thinking quicker on your feet. (Purple-blue foods protect the brain from the effects of aging and help aid in memory recall.)

- Preventing artery-clogging plaque from building up. Concord grape juice also has been found to reduce inflammation of the arteries; concord grapes help raise HDL, the good cholesterol that keeps the bad cholesterol (LDL) in check.”

Acai has some interesting anti-inflammation properties. The buzz today is about inflammation being one of the big disease processes. It affects everything from our joints to our arteries. We have had many positive reports from our customers of the success of obtaining relief from the aches and pains of inflammatory disease from adding Dr. Tim’s Brazilian Acai and Dr. Tim’s Thai Mangosteen to their diets.

Have a hangover? ISO-5 to the rescue!

With the Holidays upon us many of us will spend more time socializing at parties. From the office party to the big celebration when we usher in the New Year many will gather and imbibe. For those who may be inclined to include the consumption of alcohol in these celebrations I want to give you a way to combat the negative effects of the dreaded hangover. A hangover is a condition related to dehydration. Alcohol can cause the body to lose 3% more body fluid in a 4-hour period, leading to dehydration even quicker (5). So here are a couple of suggestions; Don’t drink and drive. Drink Dr. Tim’s ISO-5 which has all of the necessary electrolytes and the right carb to protein ratio. It is the most efficient and effective rehydration drink available. It is powered by young coconut water and is all natural without any added sugars. It is delicious with a unique and alluring smooth finish.

Global obesogenic environment

In the December 18, 2008 Newsweek article by Mary Carmichael, she reports on an interview she had with Barry Popkin a professor of global nutrition at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The interview was about the globalization of obesity. She asys “It's not just Americans anymore; the whole world is becoming obese, and we have more than just the advent of cheap cheeseburgers to blame.” She reports on the new book that Popkin has released “The World is Fat”. In his book he attributes the blame on this global crisis on several food items including “sugary drinks”.

He continues “What’s happened is that from 30 years ago to today, we've had an exponential explosion in what we can think of as the "obesogenic environment." You see food available everywhere. You can't move more than 100 feet without seeing a caloric beverage” “In most of the world, it used to be that people mostly drank water, and today they're consuming more and more sweetened beverages”. 22 ounces of a caloric beverage adds an extra 300 calories per day.

This is the prime reason we have developed ISO-5 our all natural Complete Hydration drink. Dr. Tim’s ISO-5 powered by young green coconut water has half the calories of any of the competing sports drinks such as Gatorade. And the sugars that are in ISO-5 are all naturally occurring from the coconut water. That means that there is no high fructose corn syrup unlike competing drinks like Gatorade. ISO-5 is all natural, delicious, rehydrating and contains all 5 necessary electrolytes. It is one of the best answers to this problem of global obesity.

Dr. Tim’s weight loss habit

Hi this is Dr. Tim, and I want to share how I am using our products to lose weight. After traveling around the world and keeping up a fast paced schedule sometimes the pounds add on. I drink one quarter to one half cup of Dr. Tim’s Brazilian Acai or a mix of all four for breakfast and lunch. I make sure that I am drinking plenty of water throughout the day. I drink one Jungle Juice per day usually in the morning around 10:00 am. That way I don’t feel hungry and then it has all day to work for me. At night I eat a reasonable low glycemic meal. I make sure that I do not eat past 8:00pm. The food you eat late at night never seems to go away if you know what I mean. I add some moderate exercise at least 3 nights per week and as often as 5 nights per week. This for me is usually a brisk walk outside or on the treadmill for 30 to 45 minutes. After just a little over two weeks I have dropped 10 lbs.

Here’s a neat little trick to help during the holidays

As you collect all of the treats from friends, neighbors, family and business wrap them up and put them in your freezer. Then on Christmas day or even New Years day bring the treats out thaw them and eat all you want. When the day is over throw out what is left. That way you can enjoy the goodies while being good. Have a Happy Holiday!

Acai #1 on Dr. Perricone's Superfood List

Many noted physicians are reporting that Acai is a top "super food" because of its high level of antioxidants, phytochemicals and essential fatty acids. Acai is considered by many to be a excellent addition to an anti-inflamatory diet. An anti-inflamatory diet is thought to prevent diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and alzheimers disease.

Over at Oprah.com, Dr. Perricone talks about his top 10 Super foods, and number one on his list is Acai. Check out the entire article here .

It bears repeating that Dr. Tim's Acai Juice is the best value on the market. We don't dilute our juice with water. Why pay more for Acai? You don't have to be involved with multi-level marketing to enjoy the benefits of Dr. Tim's Acai Juice. We are available at retail locations and online. Dr. Tim's Acai Juice and our other botanical juices can be purchased online at http://www.brazilbotanicals.com/.

Beware of Acai Diet Pill Scams

What our customers have to say about the benefits of our products!

• My husband is no longer on blood pressure meds after taking Acai and Noni/Mangosteen. Naps are no longer needed either and a lot of the aches and pains have diminished. We live at 9700 feet and the extra energy we both have from taking the Acai is really helpful---and not needing as much sleep at night is an extra bonus!Carol M.

• My Husband, Brother and Mother are all using your Acai Juice and are having wonderful results. Thank you.Karen R

• I like your web site very much, have learned a lot of useful information. I look forward to receiving my first 5 Acai! I'll keep you informed. Thank you. Lana C.

News from Dr. Tim

Hi, I am Dr. Tim. I want to tell you why we go to so much trouble to bring to you the superior quality of our juices while keeping the price so low. I created this company with the same motto I took upon becoming a doctor; “First Do No Harm.” This has a deeper meaning than what it might seem from first glance. I have always believed that the true underlying meaning begins with the promotion of ones self, services and or product. It means that you must tell the truth! There is no harm in knowing the truth in advance of purchasing goods and or services. That is why I work so hard at sharing as much information on our web site www.brazilbotanicals.com. Then what you do must be for the good of the individual receiving the goods or services and not result in harm. I promise you that no other company in the exotic juice market Multilevel or traditional retail works so diligently as we do under this motto.

Unfortunately there are so many companies out there formed with the sole purpose of taking advantage of the consumer from the Acai Diet Pill Scam and its minion affiliate web sites to juice companies who only use the minimum amount of a juice in their product yet claim that it is the driving force behind their product. We work very hard to be a leading force in the market by delivering on two simple points: quality and value. We could charge $24 to $35 dollars per bottle, we could use reconstituted powders, we could use less juice and more fillers, we could put together a “Free Trial Offer”, we could take advantage of the consumer but WE DON’T! We respect you the customer and work hard to earn your trust. We are working against these negative trends and we take a lot of heat for it from our competitors. They don’t want us around because in telling the truth we inadvertently expose them. And our answer to them is “step up and be what you claim you are!”

Next I want to let you know that we are keeping our prices low at our expense to make sure that as many people as possible can afford the health benefits. In these tough economic times we want to make sure that everyone can have the chance of adding one or more of our exotic juices to there daily routine. On top of that is our special offer that provides for free shipping when you buy 5 or 10 bottles. Nobody else dares to do this. We do it because our great customers wanted a reward for purchasing in higher quantities. I thought it sounded reasonable so I made the decision to offer free shipping on the 5 and 10 bottle purchases. We want you to feel free to choose the amount you want to drink instead of being forced by a high cost to only drink the minimum. We want to earn your next purchase because of quality. Our great customers choose to repurchase Dr. Tim’s Exotic Juices instead of being forced to purchase through some automatic recurring charge.

Finally, as a physician and a father I know the value of having such a healthy array of juices available for me and my family. We avoid so many of the colds and flu’s because we use the exotic juices in our diet. In addition to that we feel better and see how it improves our health. Pharmaceutical medicine has its place. But so much money, time and health can be saved by simply adding one of our juices to your diet. Dr. Tim’s Exotic Juices are Mother Nature made and Doctor recommended. No other Exotic Juice is recommended as much as ours is by physicians and surgeons. We have pharmacies, medical clinics and rehab units using our Dr. Tim’s Exotic Juices for their patients. No other company is willing to go to such lengths to deliver a great tasting compliment of healthy Exotic Juices at reasonable prices and offer free shipping. No other company will work like we do to provide quality and value!

Have Fun, Drink More, Live Active,

Dr. Tim

Exposing the Front Men who are Marketing Acai Pills

First let's set the record straight and call out the "man behind the curtain". Just as in the popular film "The Wizard of Oz" when during Dorothy's dream she and the three others meet up with the terrible wizard. The wizard had built an elaborate hoax to convince all of the munchkins that the wizard was "all powerful" and "all knowing". Now I don't know everything in this world but what I do know is that websites such as Top-Acai-Reviews.com, AcaiBerry-Products.com, AcaiBerryRating.com, etc. are a real life incarnation of the "wizard". These are clever marketing folks who take a little morsel of the truth and morph it into a seemingly credible effort. They want the unsuspecting consumer to believe that they are an independent and unbiased information site.

The truth of the matter is that they are actively selling a product. Take this paragraph for example; "Among the most important things consumers should consider before buying an acai berry product is that the fruit is highly perishable and will begin to lose it nutritional punch within 24 hours of picked. The best way to preserve the nutritional properties of the acai berry fruit is to remove the pit from the fruit and freeze the skin and pulp and then either package the frozen skin and pulp for delivery or freeze-dry it. This is the only way to capture the full nutritional profile of the product."

The truth is acai has to be processed within four hours of picking not 24. After 4 hours the acai berry which is really a date begins to degrade and with in a few more hours and will turn rancid.

But how would they know this if they have never been there? They want you believe that freeze drying is the only way to preserve the "full nutritional profile". The truth is that all acai has to be frozen after processing or as already discussed it will spoil. Freeze drying or lypholization is process for taking a liquid and reducing it to a powder. It is subjected to extremes of temperature beyond those needed to freeze the juice during normal processing. It loses some of its potency in this process. It is true that freeze dried powder is more effective or potent than spray dried powder. They conveniently neglect to tell you about the sterilization process of the powder.

You see to use a powder of a fruit juice whether it is freeze dried or spray dried in this country it must go through a sterilization process. Two popular methods include steam sterilization and irradiation. Steam sterilization heats up the powder subjecting it to excessive temperatures. Irradiation exposes the powder to radiation. Now compare those methods to a method that cold concentrates the juice and keeps it pure and bioactive.

Powders will never be as potent, wholesome and effective as liquid.

Acai recognized for its ability to reduce inflammation

I am often asked by many of our great customers as to the major benefits of taking our juices. All of the juices are high in antioxidants and each brings its own respective profile to the equation. I recently came across some very interesting information regarding the acai berry that you might like to read about. I want to first point out that the acai berry is really a date or a date palm berry not a true berry. It is very useful with reducing the effects of inflammation. It was recently identified as one of the top ten foods that can help reduce inflammation. Here are some quotes that support this claim; “All hail, antioxidants and the Amazon berry that has an abundance of them—açai (pronounced: ahh-sa-ee). According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Açai-rich juice may reduce levels of inflammation markers linked to conditions such as heart disease by protecting cells from oxidative damage.”

“Given the high content of certain specific polyphenols in the juice blend, the increased antioxidant protection [in the body] after consumption of the juice blend, and the anti-inflammatory capacity in vitro, further research is warranted to evaluate whether juice blend consumption may provide reversal of risk markers in subjects with conditions such as arthritis, obesity, chronic viral diseases, cardiovascular disease and compromised cognitive function, as well as other conditions associated with chronic inflammation,” wrote lead author Gitte Jensen from Holger NIS Inc., a contract research laboratory.”

“Other research has indicated that the açai berry contains a wide array of inflammation-fighting antioxidant compounds and has great potential to be used as a natural inflammation remedy.”
