LIMU ORIGINAL

How many ounces of LIMU ORIGINAL are in a bottle?

Each bottle contains 33.8 ounces (1.0 liter) of LIMU ORIGINAL, or about 16 2-oz. servings.

How much pure Tongan limu moui is in LIMU ORIGINAL?

83% of each bottle of LIMU ORIGINAL is reconstituted pure, Fucoidan-rich Tongan limu obtained via a proprietary, chemical-free extraction process.

Does LIMU ORIGINAL contain any added sugar or artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors?

Absolutely none!

How much sugar is in LIMU ORIGINAL?

LIMU ORIGINAL contains no added sugar and less than 2 grams of naturally occurring fruit sugars per one-ounce serving. That’s less than you would get from a carrot, a spear of broccoli or a small tomato.

What is the recommended daily usage of LIMU ORIGINAL?

One to four ounces twice a day, depending on your personal preference.

Who can and should drink LIMU ORIGINAL?

People of all ages can enjoy LIMU ORIGINAL.

What is the shelf life of LIMU ORIGINAL?

LIMU ORIGINAL will last up to one year when left unopened and stored at room temperature. Once opened, LIMU ORIGINAL should be refrigerated and will last for several months.

Can LIMU ORIGINAL be mixed with other drinks or juices?

Yes. LIMU ORIGINAL can be mixed with any other liquid, whether hot, cold or at room temperature.

What makes LIMU ORIGINAL so effective?

The secret behind the remarkable results people experience with LIMU ORIGINAL is the unique Tongan limu extract we use. Our proprietary extraction process took more than 15 years to perfect. And, because we have been entrusted with exclusive worldwide rights to this proven, life-changing extract, LIMU ORIGINAL can never be duplicated, period.

What makes LIMU ORIGINAL so unique?

At the heart of LIMU ORIGINAL is a uniquely beneficial Tongan limu extract that is produced using a proprietary extraction process. The Fucoidan present in the limu plant is naturally “predigested” without the use of chemicals. The result is an abundance of Fucoidan with superior bioavailability.

How can I purchase LIMU ORIGINAL?

The exclusive source for LIMU ORIGINAL is via LIMU, the company. You may purchase LIMU ORIGINAL from one of our Members at the suggested retail price of $50.00 per bottle. Better yet, become a Member for free and buy it by the case for $120 on AutoShip (automatic monthly shipments).

Where and how is LIMU ORIGINAL processed?

The unique limu used in LIMU ORIGINAL is harvested among the islands of the Kingdom of Tonga and is strictly licensed and protected by the Tongan government. The purest form of limu is collected and carefully cleaned in Tonga, then flash-frozen to preserve its freshness. It is then transported to New Zealand, where it is refined into a unique liquid extract in a government-inspected facility, using our proprietary extraction process. The extract is quality tested and transported to the United States, where it is blended with our proprietary formula into LIMU ORIGINAL and bottled for your use.

How does LIMU ensure the quality of LIMU ORIGINAL?

LIMU has a ten-step quality manufacturing process to ensure that you receive the same standardized quality in every bottle of LIMU ORIGINAL. It is manufactured according to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards in an FDA-inspected facility. From raw material analysis to final product inspection, every production step is carefully monitored and documented, with full accountability and in-process controls. Each batch of LIMU ORIGINAL is then thoroughly tested prior to being released for consumption.

Why does the product sometimes vary slightly from batch to batch?

Slight variations in the color, taste and thickness of LIMU ORIGINAL may occasionally occur due to natural variations in the organic mango puree, organic papaya puree and other natural ingredients we use. These fruits vary in color and flavor just like the oranges you buy from the supermarket. However, you can rest assured that each bottle of LIMU ORIGINAL always contains exactly the same amount of pure Tongan limu extract.

What is the advantage of flash pasteurizing LIMU ORIGINAL?

Our state-of-the-art flash pasteurization process allows us to chill-blend LIMU ORIGINAL, thereby maintaining the highest levels of nutritional integrity. By comparison, most companies use a pasteurization process that heats the product for extended periods of time, which can destroy valuable nutrients.

Are there any toxins in LIMU ORIGINAL?

Every batch of LIMU ORIGINAL is thoroughly tested to ensure that no bacteria or other contaminants are present. Regular tests are also run to ensure the product is free of heavy metals, pesticides and other harmful substances.

↑ top of page

Has LIMU ORIGINAL been tested for the presence of Benzene?

Independent tests on LIMU ORIGINAL, which is manufactured in strict accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards in an FDA-inspected facility, show no traces of benzene.

Which 70-plus nutrients are found in LIMU ORIGINAL?

In addition to the usual vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that you find in fruits and vegetables, LIMU ORIGINAL provides several other powerful nutrients including polyphenols, glyconutrients (fucose, galactose, mannose and xylose), alginate and Fucoidan. Research indicates it is the presence of Fucoidan that really differentiates LIMU ORIGINAL from other food supplements. It is important to note that Fucoidan is not found in land-based plants.

How much of each nutrient is in LIMU ORIGINAL?

LIMU ORIGINAL is made from a proprietary pure Tongan limu extract, blended with papaya and mango purees, and apple and pear concentrates. A whopping 83% of each bottle of LIMU ORIGINAL is reconstituted pure Tongan limu from this Fucoidan-rich extract! Because it is a liquid dietary supplement in the same way that wheat grass juice or aloe vera juice are liquid dietary supplements, LIMU ORIGINAL contains a wide array of naturally occurring nutrients (over 70 in all).

Is the environment damaged during harvesting of limu?

Absolutely not. The Tongan people take great care to harvest the limu without disturbing the delicate coral reefs and ocean floor where limu grows.

How much apple is in LIMU ORIGINAL?

Just enough to help make LIMU ORIGINAL the best tasting nutritional beverage ever … approximately 1 gram (or 1/28 of an ounce) per 1-oz. serving.

What is malic acid and why is it in LIMU ORIGINAL?

Malic acid, part of the alpha-hydroxy family of natural fruit acids, is what gives green apples and certain other fruits their tart flavor. Natural malic acid helps give LIMU ORIGINAL its delicious, refreshing taste.

Why are sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate in the product?

Sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate work synergistically to keep LIMU ORIGINAL free of harmful molds and microbes after bottling, and keep our chill-blended product from spoiling. These substances are present in quantities of less than one-tenth of 1% in compliance with food safety regulations. Sodium benzoate is the sodium salt of benzoic acid, an FDA-approved polyunsaturated fat that is freely found in nature, in foods such as cranberries. It has been used by food manufacturers for over 80 years to inhibit microbial growth. Potassium sorbate is a potassium salt version of sorbic acid, a polyunsaturated fat used to inhibit mold growth. It has been found to be non-toxic even when taken in large quantities and has been used in foods since the 1850s.

Does LIMU ORIGINAL contain grapefruit extract?

No. LIMU ORIGINAL does not contain grapefruit extract.

How much iodine is there in a serving of LIMU ORIGINAL?

LIMU ORIGINAL contains less than 30 micrograms (30/1000 of a milligram) of iodine per one-ounce serving. This is because, unlike iodine-rich brown seaweeds such as kelp, the unique Tongan limu contains only very small traces of iodine.

Can I still drink LIMU ORIGINAL if I’m on medication?

LIMU ORIGINAL is simply a liquid food supplement and is enjoyed by thousands of people on medication. However, it is always prudent for people who are on medication to consult their doctor before starting any nutritional or exercise program.

What if my LIMU ORIGINAL freezes during shipping?

No harm done! Simply let it thaw out and drink as usual.

Will we ever run out of limu?

Fortunately not! Limu grows in abundance in the pristine ocean waters just off the Islands of Tonga and renews itself naturally.

LIMU LEAN

What makes up the LIMU LEAN system?

Our unique weight management system is composed of products that work together to promote healthy weight loss while delivering great nutrition. The easy-to-use LIMU LEAN system includes three products that are designed for synergistic use …

• Meal Replacement Shakes (Dutch Chocolate, Creamy Vanilla)

• Appetite Controller

• Digestive Health Cleanse

What makes LIMU LEAN different than other systems?

LIMU LEAN is the only weight management system that includes the superNutrient Fucoidan. You can enjoy some of the benefits you get from LIMU ORIGINAL while using our LIMU LEAN system to help you manage your weight, and we encourage you to continue drinking LIMU ORIGINAL for your overall wellness. In addition, the proteins and formulas used in the shake and our other LIMU LEAN products are specifically engineered to make you healthier even while you’re losing weight.

Can I still eat while using LIMU LEAN?

Absolutely! In fact, we recommend that you eat a sensible meal and three healthy snacks each day. Starving yourself won’t help you lose weight, but our LIMU LEAN products in conjunction with the right nutrition and activity plan will! Just remember to count your calories and maintain a sensible eating plan.

How does the Meal Replacement Shake help me manage my weight?

Each Meal Replacement Shake provides a healthy balance of nutrients, including 20 grams of protein and 35% of the Recommended Daily Allowances for many important vitamins and minerals. It can be used as a full meal replacement (which helps you stay satisfied) and we recommend drinking two shakes each day for optimal weight loss. The shake contains an optimum balance of protein sources for a lean and toned lifestyle and offers an easy way to keep portion size under control.

How much money could I save by replacing some of my meals with the LIMU LEAN Meal Replacement Shakes?

We estimate that replacing breakfast and lunch meals would save an average of at least $3 to $4 per meal. A complete LIMU LEAN system provides enough product to replace 56 meals per month, which means you could save between $168 and $224 in a month by using our Meal Replacement Shakes.

Does the Meal Replacement Shake contain any preservatives?

The Meal Replacement Shake contains NO preservatives.

Does the Meal Replacement Shake replace my daily consumption of LIMU ORIGINAL or BLU FROG?

Not really, because our Meal Replacement Shakes are formulated to assist in weight loss. You should continue drinking two to four ounces of LIMU ORIGINAL a day for optimal health, and continue drinking BLU FROG whenever you need extra energy.

Can children use the LIMU LEAN Meal Replacement Shake?

Yes. The ingredients in our Meal Replacement Shake are nutritious, healthy and designed for use by both adults and children.

Can you give me some guidelines to follow for my sensible meal?

Here are some suggestions to help you make the healthiest food choices possible:

• Fruits and vegetables add fiber, water and vitamins to your meals with relatively few calories. Eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day.

• Choose whole-grain foods more often: wheat or multi-grain breads, brown rice, whole-wheat pastas and high fiber whole grain cereals.

• Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. Water is essential to your body and an important element of your weight loss plan.

• Get enough protein in your diet, especially from lean meats, skinless poultry, fish, eggs and beans.

• Limit your added salt, sugar and alcohol intake. Sodium should be limited as part of a healthy weight loss plan and sugary foods and alcohol contain calories with no nutritional value.

• If you already take vitamin supplements, continue taking them.

Does the Meal Replacement Shake require FDA approval?

Our Shake is manufactured to safety and quality standards that meet or exceed all government standards. The FDA regulates the quality and safety of dietary supplements, but there is no FDA-specific approval offered for dietary supplements.

Why is the Appetite Controller an important part of LIMU LEAN?

On any weight management plan, you are bound to get hungry. Used once a day, our Appetite Controller not only keeps you from being overcome with hunger pains, but also works as a metabolism booster, helping you burn fat more efficiently.

Why is it essential to use the Digestive Health Cleanse?

The LIMU LEAN Cleanse acts as a 7-day tune–up of sorts for monthly digestive health. It allows your body to better support optimum nutrient absorption and is a good source of natural dietary fiber. It also aids in relieving digestive stress through the 9 different healthy bacterial species included in the Cleanse.

How long will it take me to lose weight with LIMU LEAN?

Weight loss is different for every person. However, our pre-launch trial study showed most people losing weight after the very first week of integrating the LIMU LEAN lifestyle into their routine. Others lost weight after the first few weeks.

Is there gluten in any of the LIMU LEAN products?

No. Every single LIMU LEAN product is gluten-free, as is our entire line of LIMU products.

Do the LIMU LEAN Meal Replacement Shakes contain soy?

Yes. The lecithin in the product comes from soybeans, which contributes to the shake’s texture and consistency. It is listed as the last ingredient on the label since there is only a trace amount of soy in the shake mixture.

How many carbohydrates are in each Meal Replacement Shake?

There are 30 grams of carbohydrates per shake; however, only three of those grams are sugar carbohydrates. The recommended daily limit of sugar carbohydrates for weight loss is about 20 grams per day.

Can I drink the Appetite Controller and the Shake together?

All of the LIMU LEAN products have been created to be taken together, but not necessarily mixed together. We recommend that you mix your Shake, Appetite Controller and Cleanse with water, in order to not add calories to your intake. You can also mix our products with whatever beverage best suits you, but remember you may be adding calories.

 top of page

Is the Appetite Controller better to take hot or cold and should I sweeten it?

Since your body must naturally heat any cold beverage up, it’s best if you drink the lemon-flavored Appetite Controller hot for faster bioavailability. There are already some great natural sweeteners in the Appetite Controller, so adding more isn’t necessary.

Is it important to have less or more calories than the daily recommended amount?

It is very important to keep within the calorie range recommended, and not skip shakes or your sensible meals because your body needs the nutrients. As a reminder, women should consume approximately 1200 calories per day, while men should consume approximately 1600 calories per day.

Why is it important to keep track of my weight and waist measurements weekly?

Many people experience “plateaus,” a normal phase in the weight loss process. Measuring and weighing yourself at the beginning of every week will help you stick to the program and see what results you’re having.

Does LIMU LEAN have an online support system?

Yes! Start a 90-Day Challenge in your IAMLIMU.com Back Office and track your progress along the way. There are also helpful articles, tools and information posted to help you meet your weight loss goals.

Who can I talk to about coaching and what is available?

For starters, use our 90 Days to Lean booklet to give you all the information on how to be successful on this program. Support is also available via phone at 1-888-W8T-LOSS and email at LIMULEAN@theLIMUcompany.com.

What is the best time of day to drink the Appetite Controller?

You know your body best and you know what time of day your cravings are likely to hit, so use it for those times. Some people even like to split up a single portion over the course of a day. Keep in mind the Appetite Controller will give you a metabolism boost, so you may not want to make it your late night beverage.

Can I travel with the LIMU LEAN system?

Absolutely! The LIMU LEAN system is so simple, you can use it wherever it is you are. Your travel plans will never interfere with your diet plans again.

What can I add to my Meal Replacement Shakes?

Our Shake can be enjoyed without adding anything other than water. You may add chopped almonds, fruit or ice for a thicker Shake, but don’t forget to count the extra calories. You may want to mix your Shake in a blender rather than the blender bottle provided, if you are adding extra ingredients.

If I use twice as much powder in my Shake, or if I drink more than two Shakes per day, will I lose weight twice as fast?

Our Meal Replacement Shake should be used only two times a day in order to maintain optimal nutrition, in combination with sensible meals and a greater level of exercise or activity. Using more of the product will not help you lose weight more quickly. The system was designed as a synergistic plan, and we recommend you follow the instructions as you participate.

I’m not losing as much weight with the LIMU LEAN system as I am losing inches. What does this mean?

As your body starts to rid itself of fat, it may replace the fat with new muscle. When this happens, you’ll notice that you’re losing inches all over. This is why it’s important to start out with initial measurements; you can’t always tell how well it’s working by the scale alone!

 top of page

Can I use the Meal Replacement Shake in combination with weight loss pills?

We do not recommend using any other weight loss products while you are using the LIMU LEAN products.

Can women who are pregnant or nursing drink the Meal Replacement Shake?

We do not recommend women who are pregnant or nursing use our LIMU LEAN products. If you are pregnant or lactating, you should consult a physician prior to starting any weight loss program.

What side effects might I expect to see with LIMU LEAN?

Any new weight management program may cause minor side effects, such as constipation, sleepiness or headaches. Often those side effects are caused due to not eating enough or not drinking enough water or not getting the right level of fiber in your diet. For some, the enhanced nutrients in the LIMU LEAN products may be different than those your body is used to. Be sure to use all of the LIMU LEAN products as recommended, and report any serious side effects to your physician. You should also consult your doctor to address any possibility of allergies.

How do I combat weight loss plateaus?

First of all, evaluate what you’re eating. What is your protein intake? What is your sodium intake? Can you increase your exercise? All of these things will help get you beyond any plateaus. Remember that being on a plateau is just your body’s way of reassessing its needs and is actually a good thing!

Can I drink it with other products?

We encourage you to incorporate it in with other LIMU products, such as drinking a BLU FROG before you work out and then having a LIMU LEAN Shake after your workout to rebuild your lean muscle tissue and help with recovery. It is also highly beneficial to support your immune system on a daily basis by drinking the recommended servings of LIMU ORIGINAL.

How long do the effects last?

Though everyone is different and it may depend on the level of activity exerted after drinking a BLU FROG, the average length of energy felt is four hours.
