    Have you guys heard of this stuff? It's supposedly the new hotness, it has something like 10 times the antioxidants of blueberries and they import it from Brazil. (I did a quick search and haven't seen anything posted on it in F&N)

    Anyways, I had read about the brand below on AZCentral.com like 4 months ago and then recently my brother said he's been drinking the stuff and has felt better so I figured I'd try it, and I can honestly say I just feel a ton better, I have more energy, I don't feel tired when I wake up in the morning, I'm not hungry or feel the need to snack on crap, I am motivated to go walking/running/hiking/swimming instead of feeling like it's something I have to go do. I dunno.... I'm a big supporter of mind over matter and I've always thought that when I believe something is supposed to do something special that it will but when I started drinking it I had serious doubts about this crap.

    Has anyone else heard of it or tried it? I found it for sale in Whole Foods and Wild Oats so far. I heard Trader Joe's carries a few brands, I have only tried the Sambazon one. I've also tried their vitamin C drink, the Amazon Cherry, amazingly enough this stuff doesn't taste like shit, it's actually pretty good.

    Sounds interesting, I know pomegranate juice is supposed to have a ton of antioxidants and stuff like that too, it is just so expensive. They have it at the grocery store and a bottle that is about 20 oz or so (maybe less maybe more) is something like $3 to $4.

    I got a bottle of it today, cost me $4.19. Gonna try it tomorrow or monday, shit was frozen solid when I got it...apparently to preserve the freshness.
