Intra Fruit Juice Review

Intra Fruit Juice Review

Have you ever thought about taking in food supplements for your health? I once considered it, and the results were not good.

Usually, these food supplements are tied up together with networking companies and that's why I didn't want to try them out. Aside from the networking thingy being fishy, I just didn't believe too much in products being sold by regular people who really don't have any idea what they were selling. 

My family's a pretty much medical-related gang. My dad used to work at Unilab, my two sisters are chemists and pharmacists... and we all pretty much believe in the tested and proven drugs.

But on the other hand, my boyfriend, well, ex-boyfriend right now... their family's a little spontaneous and they're more adventurous in trying out food, exercises, alternative medicine et cetera. So anyway... after years of him convincing me to try this Intra Fruit Juice out, I finally tried it. The results??? Que horror!!

Intra Fruit Juice Review:
DO NOT DRINK THIS PRODUCT if you are not aware of all the allergies in your body. If you're familiar with my Derma Diaries, this juice is the culprit that pretty much caused all of my acne! But of course, I'll have to be objective, so here's my take...

Packaging wise, it's pretty good. You can see all the ingredients and nutritional value in the label. It tastes like prune juice and of course it has NO APPROVED THERAPEUTIC CLAIMS just like all the other food supplements. But what was the effect on me? My regular bowel movement was changed. My routine used to be eat breakfast, drink coffee, and go to the toilet. This changed my bowel movement and it made my stomach rumble after work when I'm travelling home or even at the mall. The timing was just super bad. Until now, six months after drinking this juice, my "routine" still hadn't come back. 

What other effects did I notice? I'm quite acidic with the food I take. But I noticed that after taking this in for 1 week, my tummy didn't hurt too much when I haven't taken lunch or when I'm drinking sodas et cetera. So it's a thumbs up there. 

And here's the worst part... this might be the culprit for my acne allergy. I noticed pimples after a week of taking it and I was like "It's okay, just might be the detoxification effect" but pimples kept popping up and soon I had a whole army of acne on my face. Over four weeks of drinking this juice, I eliminated makeup and skincare products which I thought was causing my acne, and nothing seemed to work. I was even wondering like I've used those makeup products before and it didn't have any bad effects on me, so why now?

I went to a dermatologist at Asian Hospital in Alabang only to find out this might be the culprit. I might be allergic to one of the organic ingredients and that the allergy could've shown up anywhere else in the body, but it showed up on my face. The doctor said at least, the allergy didn't take effect internally where some valves could have swollen up and I could've died.

What I learned from this experience? Do not drink this juice unless you're 100% aware of your body and the side effects this might cause you. Think VERY, VERY, VERY carefully about taking in a product that has NO APPROVED THERAPEUTIC CLAIMS.

This product costs about PHP 1,500 or more, I forgot already -- but the expenses I've incurred with my dermatologist and medical bills amounted to PHP 15,000+ already. So no, I really don't recommend drinking this Intra Fruit Juice just because you don't know what this might do to your body.

  1. I have tried this product and I experience worst side effects than yours...I guess. I only took the this product combined with Nutria. In 2 days after taking the juice and capsule, there are rashes in my bottom parts and I have edema in my legs. I never thought it was a side effect because the contents are fruits and vegetables. I took Nutria for 5 days and Intra for less than 5 days. I stopped drinking after realizing that it was because of it. Since drinking both Nutria and Intra, clustered rashes with pus appears in any parts of my body. They are like mushrooms; like yesterday you can them in the upper part of my legs and the next day it on the lower parts of my legs and those on the upper parts goes off like in 48 hour then transfer to another parts of body. It's like a routine. Then my edema is also the same. My right leg first then after few days both of my legs already. Then it goes off and rashes come; rashes off, edema in. And there are times both edema and rashes at the same time. Its been almost 4 months since I took it but until now I am suffering the side effects. I think my allergies were awaken after drinking both products.

    I was and scared of what's going on inside my body. Barely 2 nonths after taking them I had my blood tested and the results were all normal levels.

    I really don't know what to do now...

  2. I understand how you feel right now. Until now, even though it's been a year, my skin hasn't gone back to its glory days before taking intra. This is why I'm also avoiding the all natural ingredients or the organic stuff unless I read all of the ingredients because I'm not sure what preservative they're using or anything that could be triggering my allergies up. We just have to trust the doctor that we chose and thank God that our allergies manifested outside rather than in. After taking intra, I felt like my skin got more prone to acne and I now have sensitive and dry skin on my body with rashes. I can't find a cure for this and I also don't know what to do.

    I also took biotin last month from healthy options and lo and behold, I got another breakout. After doing some research, I found out that drinking biotin actually causes an imbalance in b5 and yes, a lot of acne. We just have to be more careful on what we drink from now on. Research research research first (which I failed to do before drinking biotin) :(
