Changing Lives, One Cup at a Time

Thanks to Flex I’m Pain Free

“My back started hurting really badly last night. I totally forgot all about Flex until Sis Lagi Allen to the rescue reminded me about Flex and she had some on hand! The rest of the night at our church’s annual Harvest Fest went on with a BLAST and I was pain free :) #LoveJavita ~Koleta Gurr


Say Goodbye to Aches and Pains with Flex

Years of basketball and track are now wreaking havoc on these old ankles and knees.

Not anymore.

No more hour long warm up and taping rituals for me.

I drop a packet of Flex in my water bottle and do another mile in the road.

Javita is One of the Best Decisions I’ve Ever Made!

One year after drinking Javita (coffee, tea, and water blends), and I’m down nearly 40 total body inches.

I naturally eat smaller portions, have a stomach that I haven’t seen this flat in ten years and I’m wearing clothes that haven’t fit in years (or ever).

I feel fantastic, and I’ve helped so many people!

My husband has lost nearly 25 lbs, wears a size smaller in clothing than he’s ever worn as an adult, and he feels good about himself, which is my favorite part!

Definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.


Burn + Control and Flex Have Changed My Life

“My wife and I have been members with Javita for 2+ years. We hit the supervisor rank quickly. but had to back off a bit to care for both my parents who passed away after extended illnesses.

We have remained active and continue using the products as time allows. Within our first 10 weeks drinking Burn + Control I lost 22 lbs, and Shelley lost 10 lbs. We have continued to drink the coffee on a regular basis and have had wonderful results. I was suffering from hypertension. I was borderline high with my MD wanting to start medication. My cholesterol was high as well. Both have plummeted and I am within normal levels on both.

At the last convention, I was so impressed with the informational segments focusing on products along with the testimonies, I decided to take on a chronic pain issue with the use of Flex. Due to my past involvement in football and work in my younger years, I have had 11 major knee surgeries. I’ve had multiple ACL, MCL, numerous Meniscus repairs, including one total knee replacement. I have lived in chronic knee pain for 25 years. I have refused to take pain medication for personal reasons, but have taken 2400 mg of Ibuprofen per day to alleviate some of the pain. Shelley works in the medical field and has been concerned about the long-term effect on my intestinal tract.

At the convention, I decided to quit cold turkey and proceeded to take two Flex per day. The results are absolutely amazing. I have no knee pain whatsoever. I have also struggled with back and shoulder injury issues due to an automobile accident 9 years ago. I have little to no back pain daily. I have almost regained normal motion with my shoulder as well. After all these years of the daily high dose of Ibuprofen, I have not taken one dose since the convention. Not one.

Burn + Control and Flex have literally changed my life.”  ~Sincerely, Rev. Bruce and Shelley Glines


Javita Gave Me Back My Health and SO MUCH MORE!

Double-X size black t-shirt, gartered black short pants, high-cut rubber shoes rolled into one made me hide from one stark reality –that I am basically overweight. The painful reality was during this “hiding moments of my life” I honestly felt that I am not far on becoming obese.  

I was not a fat person before. I used to have the confidence and self-esteem. In my late 20s, I could say that I had that “hunk” athletic physique, but this has become a thing of the past.

For some reason, and I really don’t know why, I started gaining weight after I got married. I just adored my wife’s cooking. Perhaps, the thought that I’m already a “Happy family man” made me blind to the reality that I was starting to gain more and more weight. I adhered to some crazy dietary guidelines, some dietary shakes (sigh)… I ended up tossing out any items devoted to weight loss fads. There were also times that I transformed our mezzanine into a “home gym” equipped with complete exercise machines and gadgets…..but the reality was, I ended up just looking at these “home gym” I created. I procrastinate when it comes to exercising… Maybe one of the reason, was I find it very hard to start to moving because of my heaviness. I started to feel that I am doomed and trapped and that that there was no way out from the “overweight world”. I refused to accept the emergence of self-defeating emotions and adding to that was my negligence for the urgent need to reduce weight for health reasons. No one knew including my wife that I was getting very depressed. I honestly felt so low. All the self-esteem and confidence I had completely vanished.

And then one day in mid-July of 2016, Javita came to my life like a miracle. I listened to the presentation, and as I was looking at my friend who was already wearing size 10 dress (She used to be size 18 before after Javita), an inner voice cried out; “Go, try Javita. Do not hesitate!” And that spurred my close-minded attitude to change, and signed up to become a Javita Member. I followed the instruction which was absolutely easy… Drink Javita Burn + Control upon waking on an empty stomach. I am a coffee drinker anyway and just like majority of people I know, we usually start our day with a hot cup of coffee. So I felt that nothing really has changed. I just switch my coffee brand to Javita. To me, this is the simplest instruction I ever received when it comes to losing weight. Javita is not complicated.  To my surprise and joy, after one month of drinking Javita Burn + Control, I trimmed down from 285 pounds to 265 pounds … then 253 pounds and still reducing to 245 pounds within a period of just three (3) months . From size 44 waistline. I started to enjoy size 40 and I know it will soon get back to size 34 again with the help of Javita.  

If only I had known Javita before, I wouldn’t be feeling that depression. But Javita came right on time. I am thankful to my friend who introduced Javita to me and my family. My family ended up signing as members too because they just loved how Javita is helping our health. My dad’s diabetic condition has improved with our Javita Lean + Green Tea. We embraced Javita ,and Javita is now a part of our lifestyle.

I love sharing my story to people of how my life has been positively changed through Javita. I feel a lot lighter, healthier and happier now, and Javita is one of the reasons why.

I want to inspire others who seem to have lost their hope with their weight loss battle and struggles. Being overweight and becoming obese is a very depressing feeling, not to mention difficult to look at. Javita is finally here to help us. We just need is to develop the attitude of open-mindedness with the simplicity of this coffee. We need to practice the attitude of being coachable and humility to follow the instruction given to us.

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. You have to go out there and make good things happen, and you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” 

I want someone to look at me and say, “Because of You, I didn’t give up my hope.”

God has blessed me with Javita, and now it is my turn to bless others.

Remember the Double-X black T-shirt, gartered black short pants, high-cut rubber shoes? They are now things of the past.


13 Health Benefits of Coffee, Based on Science

Coffee is actually very healthy.

It is loaded with antioxidants and beneficial nutrients that can improve your health.

The studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of several serious diseases.

Here are the top 13 health benefits of coffee, that have been confirmed in actual human studies.

 

(1) Coffee Can Improve Energy Levels and Make You Smarteristock_brain

Coffee can help people feel less tired and increase energy levels (12).

This is because it contains a stimulant called caffeine, which is actually the most commonly consumed psychoactive substance in the world (3).

After you drink coffee, the caffeine is absorbed into the bloodstream. From there, it travels into the brain (4).

In the brain, caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine.

When that happens, the amount of other neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine actually increases, leading to enhanced firing of neurons (56).

Many controlled trials in humans show that coffee improves various aspects of brain function. This includes memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, reaction times and general cognitive function (789).

Bottom Line: Caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, which leads to a stimulant effect. This improves energy levels, mood and various aspects of brain function.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(2) Coffee Can Help You Burn Fatfatlarge

Did you know that caffeine is found in almost every commercial fat burning supplement?

There’s a good reason for that… caffeine is one of the very few natural substances that have actually been proven to aid fat burning.

Several studies show that caffeine can boost the metabolic rate by 3-11% (1011).

Other studies show that caffeine can specifically increase the burning of fat, by as much as 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people (12).

However, it is possible that these effects will diminish in long-term coffee drinkers.

Bottom Line: Several studies show that caffeine can increase fat burning in the body and boost the metabolic rate.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(3) The Caffeine Can Drastically Improve Physical Performance7-reasons-why-women-must-lift-weights-1024x682

Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, causing it to send signals to the fat cells to break down body fat (1314).

But caffeine also increases Epinephrine (Adrenaline) levels in the blood (1516).

This is the “fight or flight” hormone, designed to make our bodies ready for intense physical exertion.

Caffeine makes the fat cells break down body fat, releasing them into the blood as free fatty acids and making them available as fuel (1718).

Given these effects, it is not surprising to see that caffeine can improve physical performance by 11-12%, on average (2920).

Because of this, it makes sense to have a strong cup of coffee about a half an hour before you head to the gym.

Bottom Line: Caffeine can increase adrenaline levels and release fatty acids from the fat tissues. It also leads to significant improvements in physical performance.

(4) There Are Essential Nutrients in Coffeedownload

Coffee is more than just black water. Many of the nutrients in the coffee beans do make it into the final drink.

A single cup of coffee contains (21):

  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2): 11% of the RDA.
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5): 6% of the RDA.
  • Manganese and Potassium: 3% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium and Niacin (B3): 2% of the RDA.

Although this may not seem like a big deal, most people are drinking more than one cup per day. If you drink 3-4, then these amounts quickly add up.

Bottom Line: Coffee contains several important nutrients, including Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium and Niacin.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(5) Coffee May Lower Your Risk of Type II Diabetes

diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a gigantic health problem, currently afflicting about 300 million people worldwide.

It is characterized by elevated blood sugars in the context of insulin resistance or an inability to secrete insulin.

For some reason, coffee drinkers have a significantly reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The studies show that people who drink the most coffee have a 23-50% lower risk of getting this disease, one study showing a reduction as high as 67% (2223242526).

According to a massive review that looked at data from 18 studies with a total of 457,922 individuals, each daily cup of coffee was associated with a 7% reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes (27).

Bottom LineSeveral observational studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of getting type II diabetes, a serious disease that currently afflicts about 300 million people worldwide.

(6) Coffee May Protect You From Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia3

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the leading cause of dementia worldwide.

This disease usually affects people over 65 years of age.

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s.

However, there are several things you can do to prevent the disease from showing up in the first place.

This includes the usual suspects like eating healthy and exercising, but drinking coffee may be incredibly effective as well.

Several studies show that coffee drinkers have up to a 65% lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease (2829).

Bottom Line: Coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease, which is a leading cause of dementia worldwide.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(7) Caffeine May Lower The Risk of Parkinson’simages-1

Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, right after Alzheimer’s.

It is caused by death of dopamine-generating neurons in the brain.

Same as with Alzheimer’s, there is no known cure, which makes it that much more important to focus on prevention.

In studies, coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, with a reduction in risk ranging from 32-60% (30313233).

In this case, it appears to be the caffeine itself that is causing the effect. People who drink decaf don’t have a lower risk of Parkinson’s (34).

Bottom Line: Coffee drinkers have up to a 60% lower risk of getting Parkinson’s disease, the second most common neurodegenerative disorder.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(8) Coffee Appears to Have Protective Effects on The Liverhuman-liver

The liver is an amazing organ that carries out hundreds of important functions in the body.

Several common diseases primarily affect the liver, including hepatitis, fatty liver disease and others.

Many of these diseases can lead to a condition called cirrhosis, in which the liver has been largely replaced by scar tissue.

It turns out that coffee may protect against cirrhosis. People who drink 4 or more cups per day have up to an 80% lower risk (353637).

Bottom Line: Coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of developing cirrhosis, which can be caused by several diseases that affect the liver.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(9) Coffee Can Fight Depression and Make You Happierhappy-people-sized

Depression is a serious mental disorder that causes a significantly reduced quality of life.

It is incredibly common and about 4.1% of people in the U.S. currently meet the criteria for clinical depression.

In a Harvard study published in 2011, women who drank 4 or more cups per day had a 20% lower risk of becoming depressed (38).

Another study with 208,424 individuals found that those who drank 4 or more cups per day were 53% less likely to commit suicide (39).

Bottom Line: Coffee appears to lower the risk of developing depression and may dramatically reduce the risk of suicide.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(10) Coffee Drinkers Have a Lower Risk of Some Types of Cancercancer-2

Cancer is one of the world’s leading causes of death and is characterized by uncontrolled growth of cells in the body.

Coffee appears to be protective against two types of cancer… liver cancer and colorectal cancer.

Liver cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the world, while colorectal cancer ranks fourth (40).

Studies show that coffee drinkers have up to a 40% lower risk of liver cancer (4142).

One study of 489,706 individuals found that those who drank 4-5 cups of coffee per day had a 15% lower risk of colorectal cancer (43).

Bottom Line: Liver and colorectal cancer are the 3rd and 4th leading causes of cancer death worldwide. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of both.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(11) Coffee Does Not Cause Heart Disease and May Lower The Risk of Strokehealthy_heart

It is often claimed that caffeine can increase blood pressure.

This is true, but the effect is small (3-4 mm/Hg) and usually goes away if you drink coffee regularly (4445).

However, the effect may persist in some people, so keep that in mind if you have elevated blood pressure (4647).

That being said, the studies do NOT support the myth that coffee raises the risk of heart disease (4849).

In fact, there is some evidence that women who drink coffee have a reduced risk of heart disease (50).

Some studies also show that coffee drinkers have a 20% lower risk of stroke (5152).

Bottom Line: Coffee may cause mild increases in blood pressure, which usually diminish over time. Coffee drinkers do not have an increased risk of heart disease, but a slightly lower risk of stroke.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(12) Coffee May Help You Live Longerdownload-2

Given that coffee drinkers are less likely to get many diseases, it makes sense that coffee could help you live longer.

There are actually several observational studies showing that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of death.

In two very large studies, drinking coffee was associated with a 20% lower risk of death in men and a 26% lower risk of death in women, over a period of 18-24 years (53).

This effect appears to be particularly strong in type II diabetics. In one study, diabetics who drank coffee had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year study period (54).

Bottom Line: Several studies show that coffee drinkers live longer and have a lower risk of premature death.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

(13) Coffee is The Biggest Source of Antioxidants in The Western Diet

51600212 - natural antioxidants red round grunge vintage ribbon stamp

For people who eat a standard Western diet, coffee may actually be the healthiest aspect of the diet.

That’s because coffee contains a massive amount of antioxidants.

In fact, studies show that most people get more antioxidants from coffee than both fruits and vegetables… combined (555657).

Coffee is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. Period.
