Changing Lives, One Cup at a Time

Tom Bowman Joins Javita’s Million Dollar Club


Tom Bowman, Royal Blue Diamond with Javita, recently achieved $1 million in lifetime earnings with the company, and is now the second Member to join Javita’s Million Dollar Club. He credits his success with Javita’s ‘keep it simple’ philosophy, and to his dedicated team who are passionate about changing people’s lives. Several of his team Members are also poised to soon join Javita’s Million Dollar Club.

Tom, who resides in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA joined Javita in late 2012, when the company was in its infancy. After almost a decade of experience and some success in the industry, Tom knew he had found exactly what he was looking for all along when he was introduced to Javita.

Since joining Javita, Tom has been instrumental in Javita’s 30 consecutive months of sales growth.

“I decided to join Javita because I wanted to be a part of a company that truly could change lives, not a company built only for the ‘super stars.’ I am committed to Javita because it’s a company that puts people first above all else. Javita offers incredible opportunity to those who really want to change their family’s health and financial situation.”

“Hitting the million dollar mark in such a short period of time is a real achievement for my family and me. We feel so honored for the hard work and sacrifice to have paid off in just two years. Javita has offered me an opportunity of a lifetime to not only change my life, but to change and positively affect the lives of thousands of people. I know this is just the beginning of a long and prosperous career with Javita.”

Tom believes ‘you are destined to win’ at Javita if you just follow these three simple steps — Prepare, Share and Party! His team focuses 100 percent on the coffee party system because it is a proven system that works for everyone. Sharing Javita is simple because the products are already consumed daily and the health benefits are desired by everyone. It’s not about selling Javita, it’s about sharing a product and business that can make someone’s goals a reality. I’m surrounded by people who are committed to building a business that will create a legacy for themselves and their families.

When it comes to how Javita has changed his life, the father of three said it’s because of Javita that he is now able to provide for his children giving them the opportunity to do and become anything they desire.

“When the economy crashed I was at my lowest point in life. I was forced to rely on my family for assistance, and at one point I was sleeping on my brother-in-law’s couch. I knew this wasn’t where I wanted to be or stay in life, so something had to change. I wanted to be there for my kids and I wanted to be the best father I knew I could be. If I can go from having no money in my bank account and having to use a food card to buy groceries for my kids, to where I am today, without a doubt anyone can do this.”

Spotlight: Yerba Mate

Yerba mate has shown up in a lot of different supplements lately. If you’ve ever wondered how it helps you burn and lose weight, and what other health benefits might you observe, then this short article can help you sort it all out.

How Yerba Mate Helps You Burn Fat

Yerba mate is a stimulant with an ingredient known as mateine, which is similar to caffeine, without some of the known side effects. The mateine in yerba mate can help increase your metabolism and increase your energy, thereby burning fat in the process.

Yerba mate also has a relaxing effect that can calm your emotions and make you less prone to fall into overeating while stressed—a condition known as stress eating. This effect of yerba mate has also been known to stop cravings you may have for unhealthy foods. In addition, yerba mate has been found to slow down the rate of gastric emptying. This leads to dieters feeling fuller longer and less likely to overeat. It’s easier to burn fat when you’re not burning off all the excess food you’re eating.

Yerba mate’s weight loss properties were discovered during a study in which dieters consumed yerba mate along with guarana and damiana. It is unknown at this time whether the weight loss properties are from yerba mate, the other herbs in the study or the combination of all three. Yerba mate has also been known to delay the onset of lactic acid in your muscles—a condition that many exercisers know as “the burn.” A delaying of “the burn” allows you to work out for longer than usual, thereby also increasing your ability to burn more fat.

Other Benefits of Yerba Mate

  • A study on small mammals suggests that yerba mate can lower cholesterol levels and blood sugar level.
  • Yerba mate can help the body to produce more bile and soften your stool, allowing your body’s digestive system to operate more smoothly.
  • Even though yerba mate is a stimulant, it can help you sleep sounder. Sleep is a critical component of a healthy life.
  • Unlike other stimulants which can cause undue stress on your heart, yerba mate can actually be helpful to your heart by increasing supply of oxygen to the heart.
  • It can also relax your blood vessels, increasing circulation and lowering blood pressure.
  • Yerba mate is also believed to reduce inflammation of the lungs.


The Positive Effects of Yerba Maté In Obesity

Cellular studies demonstrate that yerba maté suppresses adipocyte differentiation and triglyceride accumulation and reduces inflammation. Animal studies show that yerba maté modulates signaling pathways that regulate adipogenesis, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and insulin signaling responses. In summary, the data presented here showed that the use of yerba maté might be useful against obesity, improving the lipid parameters in humans and animal models. In addition, yerba maté modulates the expression of genes that are changed in the obese state and restores them to more normal levels of expression. In doing so, it addresses several of the abnormal and disease-causing factors associated with obesity. Protective and ameliorative effects on insulin resistance were also observed. Thus, as a general conclusion, it seems that yerba maté beverages and supplements might be helpful in the battle against obesity.

Anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects

Our data from in vivo studies revealed that Yerba Mate treatment affects food intake, resulting in higher energy expenditure, likely as a result of higher basal metabolism in Yerba Mate-treated mice. Furthermore, in vivo effects of Yerba Mate on lipid metabolism included reductions in serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, and glucose concentrations in mice that were fed a high fat diet. In conclusion, Yerba Mate can potentially be used to treat obesity and diabetes

Antiobesity effects of yerba maté extract

After treatment with yerba maté extract, we observed a recovery of the expression levels. In conclusion, our data show that yerba maté extract has potent antiobesity activity in vivo. Additionally, we observed that the treatment had a modulatory effect on the expression of several genes related to obesity

Honeybush: A South African Treasure

One of its early recognized benefits of honeybush is its lack of caffeine, which makes it especially suited for night time consumption and for those who experience nervousness and want to avoid ordinary tea. As a result, it had a reputation as a calming beverage, though it may not have any specific sedative properties. It also has a low content of tannins, so it doesn’t make a highly astringent tea, which can be a problem with some grades of black or green tea or when ordinary tea is steeped too long.

Honeybush also contains flavones, isoflavones, coumestans, luteolin, 4- hydroxycinnamic acid, polyphenols, and xanthones. These ingredients serve as antioxidants and may help lower blood lipids. The isoflavones and coumestans are classified as phytoestrogens, used in the treatment of menopausal symptoms, an application for which honeybush has recently been promoted.

Other key health benefits of honeybush tea includes:

  • Caffeine-free
  • Very low tannin levels
  • It is very soothing and calms the central nervous system
  • Eases constipation
  • Can be applied topically to skin irritations
  • Full of antioxidants to guard against free radical attack
  • Contains polyphenols that boost the immune system and to help reduce the degenerative effects of lifestyle diseases
  • Rich in minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and sodium

Honeybush tea processes numerous properties that enhance the health of people that use it:

Isoflavones & Coumestans The dietary phyto-estrogen-hormone-dependant process. This is advantageous for:

  • Regulation of menstruation cycles
  • Prevention of breast, prostate and Uterus cancer
  • Reduces the risk of Osteoporosis
  • Anti-fungal properties
  • Anti-virus properties
  • Anticholesterolemic-lowers cholesterol levels
  • Hypolipemic-lowers fat levels
  • Anti-microbial
  • Anti-oxidant


  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-hepatotoxic (works against kidney poisoning)
  • Anti-virus
  • Anti-diarrhea
  • Anti-fungus o Anti-oxidants
  • Anti-depressant


  • Vitamin-type activity (mixture of eriodictyol and hesperidien)
  • Anti-oxidants
  • Anti-microbial
  • Anti-virus
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Spasmolytic
  • Diuretic (increases Urinating)
  • Non-feeding sweeteners

Research on Honeybush tea has only started recently in the 90’s and already great progress was made on testing and researching the medicinal values of this tea.

Honeybush tea improves the immune system – honeybush tea is a natural source of many antioxidants, including major phenolic compounds. Phenolic compounds play a significant role in protecting the immune system from oxidative stress, which could damage cells, according to a 2013 review published in “Nutrients.” Phenolic compounds also modulate the immune system, which helps the body’s natural defenses against infections. This may be responsible for the belief that honeybush tea is effective in relieving colds, influenza and other diseases (Livestrong).

Honey bush tea protects from inflammatory diseases – evidence also exists that the phenolic compounds in honeybush tea are able to reduce inflammation and prevent the development of chronic inflammatory diseases. Phenolic compounds have a direct effect on down-regulating the body’s inflammatory response, as demonstrated in inflamed intestinal cells similar to those seen in inflammatory bowel disease, according to a December 2010 study published in “Chemico-Biological Interactions.” This makes honeybush tea effective in providing short-term inflammatory relief as well as helping to prevent or ameliorate inflammatory diseases like IBD or Crohn’s disease (Livestrong)

Women’s Health – honeybush tea is valuable to women’s health, according to Montego Rooibos Herbal Tea, because it helps regulate periods and reduces the risk of osteoporosis and cancer of the breast and uterus (eHow).

Good for gastrointestinal health – people suffering from digestive problems can benefit from drinking honeybush tea. It can be taken to alleviate heartburn, nausea and constipation. It can also help cure constipation. It treats abdominal cramps and colic pain in infants (Natural Home Remedies).

Javita truly changed our lives within a matter of months!

Javita came our way at a time in our lives where we were working tirelessly to make ends meet. My husband and I both work in the medical field and before Javita we were trading hours for dollars — often times asking to work more days and on-call shifts.

We knew for certain we needed another means of income when we couldn’t afford to be with Richard’s dad when he was very ill. My husband’s dad later passed away due to multiple organ failure caused by diabetes. We often wonder if the outcome would have been different if we knew about Javita back then. Richard loved his dad so much, and still his heart aches because we couldn’t afford to go back home to the Philippines to see his dad for the last time.

We had no interest in MLM companies, but then we were introduced to Javita. ‘We’ll just hear what they have to say and walk away,’ we told ourselves, but to our surprise, we couldn’t leave this life changing opportunity behind. Javita is the total package: great products, straight forward business system and a solid foundation.

Javita has changed my life and provided me with the freedom I’ve always wanted. We continue to be a part of Javita because of our children. Javita has allowed us to spend the quality time we desire with our two children. We can watch them grow up and create unforgettable memories as a family. We are now debt free and have started saving for our children’s college tuition. We didn’t see how this would happen before. We are preparing for their future and building a solid and secure foundation for them for years to come.

It took us 18 months to achieve Diamond and three days later we advanced to Blue Diamond. With perseverance and dedication we achieved our goals — we never stopped believing and working our way up with our amazing team, who are now like family to us. Together we will all reach our goals and dreams with this amazing company!

We are just ordinary people who saw an incredible opportunity to help people achieve great health and wealth and live out their dreams!

Jiel Rubio, Diamond Club Member

I’m celebrating the journey of success with Javita!

I’m a part of Javita because I want to make a difference in the lives of others. We succeed best and quickest by helping others succeed, and for me, getting to Diamond in five months was a team effort!

What really drives me to share Javita is the health benefits that it brings. I’ve lost 15 pounds drinking Javita Burn & Control coffee and my blood pressure is now back to normal. I feel and look the best I’ve ever been!

After 20 years working as a registered nurse, Javita has provided me the opportunity to choose to work part time. I now have the time and freedom that I’ve always wanted. Now, I can cheer my daughter on from the stands as she competes in her basketball tournaments; or go shopping with my other two daughters. And best of all, spend quality time with my husband, Ronnie.

Great health, personal developments, financial freedom and a new Javita family has all been attained since I joined Javita. This amazing opportunity is for anyone who has a dream of a better future, both financially and in health.

The ability to bring friends and family members into the business is one of the greatest rewards Javita has given me. We have seen success for so many different people and we won’t stop here! We are changing lives!

Studies on the neuroprotective role of Piper longum in C6 glioma induced rats.

Subramanian U1, Poongavanam SVanisree AJ.


Many naturally occurring substances of plant origin ingested in human diet, exhibit anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic effects. One of the active phytochemical which shows the active anticarcinogenic role is Piper longum Linn. (Pl). Pl is widely used in ayurvedic industry due to its property in healing some of the bodily ailments. Despite being known for the antioxidant, antimicrobial and anticarcinogenic effects, its relation to brain and its tumour development is still scarce. Hence, the experimental glioma model was developed in rats using C6 glioma cells and the effect of Pl was evaluated in the brain tissue of experimental group of rats. From the study, the glioma induced animals showed an increased level of lipid peroxides (LPO), tissue marker enzymes lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), creatine kinase (CK), 5’nucleotidase (5’ND) and acetylcholine esterase (AChE). But Pl treatment (20 mg/kg body weight) significantly attenuated these alterations thereby showing potent anticancer effect in glioma induced rats. In addition, the anticarcinogenic effect of Pl was confirmed by microscopic analysis and the restoration of increased lipids and protein bound carbohydrates (PBCs) in the brain tissue of glioma induced rats. Hence our results implicate a major role for Pl in preventing the cancer development in the experimental glioma model.


Protective effect of Piper longum Linn. on monosodium glutamate induced oxidative stress in rats.

Thomas M1, Sujatha KSGeorge S.


Protective effect of ethanol extract of Piper longum Linn. against monosodium glutamate (MSG) induced toxicity was studied. Rats, orally administered with MSG at a dose of 8 mg/g body weight for 20 consecutive days, showed an increase in liver weight and rate of lipid peroxidation. Glutathione (GSH) in serum, liver and kidney showed decreased concentration. Significant increase was noticed in activities of serum alanine amino transferase (ALT) and aspartate amino transferase (AST), levels of serum triacylglycerol, total cholesterol and urea. Histopathological examination of liver and kidney showed central venous congestion, diffuse degeneration and necrosis of hepatocytes in para cortical and midzonal areas of liver and diffuse cortical tubular degeneration of kidney. Oral administration of ethanol extract of P. longum fruits at 300 mg/kg body weight along with MSG significantly reduced the levels of lipid peroxides in serum, liver and kidney, serum AST activity, serum levels of triacylglycerol and total cholesterol. Though, there was an increase in the level of GSH in tissues it was not significant. However, the treatment failed to reduce the levels of ALT and urea. Examination of tissue sections also exhibited normal histological architecture of both the organs. The present study revealed that administration of P. longum provided significant protection to liver and kidney from the oxidative stress of MSG, though the dose rate was not sufficient to provide a complete protection.


Pipernonaline from Piper longum Linn. induces ROS-mediated apoptosis in human prostate cancer PC-3 cells.

Lee W1, Kim KYYu SNKim SHChun SSJi JHYu HSAhn SC.


The antiproliferation effects of pipernonaline, a piperine derivative, were investigated on human prostate cancer PC-3 cells. It inhibited growth of androgen independent PC-3 and androgen dependent LNCaP prostate cells in a dose-dependent (30-90 μM) and time-dependent (24-48 h) manner. The growth inhibition of PC-3 cells was associated with sub-G(1) and G(0)/G(1) accumulation, confirmed by the down-regulation of CDK2, CDK4, cyclin D1 and cyclin E, which are correlated with G(1) phase of cell cycle. Pipernonaline up-regulated cleavage of procaspase-3/PARP, but did not change expression of proapoptotic bax and antiapoptotic bcl-2 proteins. Its caspase-3 activation was confirmed by the caspase-3 assay kit. In addition, pipernonaline caused the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), increase of intracellular Ca(2+), and mitochondrial membrane depolarization, which these phenomena were reversed by N-acetylcysteine, a ROS scavenger. The results suggest that pipernonaline exhibits apoptotic properties through ROS production, which causes disruption of mitochondrial function and Ca(2+) homeostasis and leads to its downstream events including activation of caspase-3 and cleavage of PARP in PC-3 cells. This is the first report of pipernonaline toward the anticancer activity of prostate cancer cells, which provides a role for candidate agent as well as the molecular basis for human prostate cancer.


Immunomodulatory and antitumor activity of Piper longum Linn. and piperine

E.S SunilaG Kuttan


Alcoholic extract of the fruits of the plant Piper longum and its component piperine was studied for their immunomodulatory and antitumor activity. Alcoholic extract of the fruits was 100% toxic at a concentration of 500 μg/ml to Dalton’s lymphoma ascites (DLA) cells and 250 μg/ml to Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) cells. Piperine was found to be cytotoxic towards DLA and EAC cells at a concentration of 250 μg/ml. Alcoholic extract and piperine was also found to produce cytotoxicity towards L929 cells in culture at a concentration of 100 and 50 μg/ml, respectively. Administration of alcoholic extract of Piper longum(10 mg/dose/animal) as well as piperine (1.14 mg/dose/animal) could inhibit the solid tumor development in mice induced with DLA cells and increase the life span of mice bearing Ehrlich ascites carcinoma tumor to 37.3 and 58.8%, respectively. Administration of Piper longum extract and piperine increased the total WBC count to 142.8 and 138.9%, respectively, in Balb/c mice. The number of plaque forming cells also enhanced significantly by the administration of the extract (100.3%) and piperine (71.4%) on 5th day after immunization. Bone marrow cellularity and α-esterase positive cells were also increased by the administration of Piper longum extract and piperine.
