My True and Honest Limu Experience Begins

I have no idea what's going to happen so I'm keeping an accounting of my experiences just in case it actually does something.

For those of you who are wondering, What the hell is Limu?, I will explain...briefly because I'm not really sure I'm clear on it either. And for the record, I am not affiliated with Limu and am only drinking it because a friend told me I should. That could change if it is as awesome as she claims. To be honest, I'm curious. And skeptical. Because how can it do all the things it claims to do?

Basically, Limu is a drink comprised mostly of Fucoidan. Fucoidan is an extract that comes from brown seaweed somewhere near New Zealand called Tongal. We know that seaweed has a lot of good benefits but Limu claims to have close to 100 benefits. Everything from preventing cancer, to weight loss, to better skin, cardiovascular support, GI tract support, reducing inflammation, helps eyes, teeth, gums, cholesterol, depression, boosts energy levels...the list goes on and on.

It sounds too good to be true. But if even 10% of the reported benefits are true, it would be amazing

My body ailments are as follows: Candida, bloating, strange eye swelling issue that doctors can't diagnose or seem to fix, hair falling out, grouchiness, lack of energy, sluggish metabolism that won't increase despite exercise and diet... Just a few things, right? ;)

There are three variations of Limu.
The Original Limu - Fucoidan extract plus mango and papaya.
The Blu Frog Energy Drink - Fucoidan plus some caffeine.
A Meal Replacement Powder - I'm told it tastes like a milk shake.

I'm taking the Original.

DAY ONE - two days ago

Starting weight: ???
Energy level: Low
Grouchiness: High
Bloating: Yes

I drank one ounce of Limu Original and one ounce of the Energy Drink this evening at about 8pm. The taste sucks. Everyone else says it tastes good but I hate mango and papaya. (shrug) Whatever, I'll do the shots. In my drinking days I drank worse.

Right away, I felt a little buzz in my body. Not enough to be classified as jittery, but definitely something was going on. About an hour later, I was definitely feeling more buzz, not jittery but a little uncomfortable. Definitely more energy. Had a lot of energy before bedtime around 11, but was able to go to sleep just fine.

DAY TWO - yesterday

Weight: ???
Energy level: High
Grouchiness: Low to none
Bloating: Yes

I woke up a couple times during the night feeling full of energy like I had slept 6 hours but only 2 hours had passed. Had no problem falling back asleep.

I woke up at 5am for work and my body was still buzzing. My body also hurt, whole body soreness/uncomfortableness but nothing serious.

Usually I am a bump on a log at work until about 8am when I start to wake up and even then I'm not in the best mood. I've been feeling really drained and unhappy lately so I was very surprised to find not only did I have full energy, I was in a peppy mood.

The mood lasted all day. ALL DAY. Seriously. Usually by about 2pm, I'm struggling to stay awake and positive. And then I usually crash around 4pm when I get home. But not yesterday. My energy level was high all day and I felt positive all day. Definitely something new.

I took my Limu shot around 6pm. I had energy all night and was happy until bed time around 11pm.

Also interesting to note, my urine and eliminations of the day smelled quite yeasty and very strong. I also passed quite a bit of mucous - Candida? Maybe. Limu is supposed to help with yeast. We'll see.

DAY THREE - today

Weight: 130 lbs
Energy level: High
Grouchiness: None
Bloating: Less

I woke up a couple times during the night again same as before. Upon awaking, I felt the buzzing and body soreness. It's really uncomfortable but manageable.

I went to the doctor. My weight was 130 lbs. But when I looked in the mirror, I swear I looked slimmer. Not significantly but just a little bit. I also don't feel as bloated today, despite the fact that I had gluten free pizza last night. I put on a pair of jeans that usually pinch a bit, but today, they felt little less pinchy. Awesome!

I decided to take Limu early today so I wouldn't feel so buzzed at night time. I took it around 11am. Lo and behold, shortly thereafter, I felt super buzzy and a little anxious. It eventually passed and then for the rest of the day I felt happy and full of energy. Almost like I was on something. My boyfriend and I were giggling a lot and joking that we felt high. (He's trying it too.)

Seriously, what the hell is Fucoidan and why didn't I know about it sooner?

Again, my eliminations and urine were yeasty and strong. I got a headache toward the end of the day. Not sure if it's Limu but it could be a detox symptom... Here's to hoping!


  1. I would love to know, since this blog, if you continued LIMU or not? If yes, is it working miracles? If no, why? For some reason in my city LIMU has suddenly taken over. NO ONE contacts me telling me about a benefit or what it does but they contact me left and right! I feel so bombarded on social media, work, home etc. I have random high school classmates contact me out of the blue. I am a very fit fitness buff and eat extremely clean. I take no medicine and I have been this way for my entire adult life. I am 43 I have 3 children and do not need to take LIMU for any reason that they can explain. I do however hear about the financial part. To me that has gimmick written all over it! I hear "oh its easy, pay $$$$ and you just get $$$ from there. I enjoyed your blog and was disappointed there was no update.

    One confused Stanger :-)

    1. I am sorry no one contacted, you, I am not sure why, I am in Abilene Tx, others believe it is to good to be true, I for one am still using it to fight against MS, and I am winning the battle, I went from not walking to walking, not dressing to dressing, and so on, my pain, and all, GONE,in less then a year, my kids have autism, and it is ding wonders for them, if people would just see what it does, it is amazing, truly, I will never stop drinking limu, however I drink about 8 to 14 ounces a day or more, my kids are on 2 ounces a day, one am and one pm, no pain, no sickness, no meltdowns, no bi polar, no cramps, from the aunt flow, I feel better at 40 then I did in my 20s, and I am recovering from MS, Vtach and Crohns. if you would like to talk call me, or go to my website, phone number is below picture,

    2. I just heard about this and have been looking for something to help also fight my MS any information would be appreciated.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the review!

    Here's an update: I am no longer taking Limu every day. After about a month and a half, I started feeling bloated and sluggish, like my body was overwhelmed. I also got this tickling feeling in my throat that made me feel like I was getting sick. I stopped taking Limu and those symptoms went away. I didn't really lose much weight but the inches I lost on my legs stayed off which was very nice :)

    My boyfriend continues to take Limu, though not as much. He didn't have the same adverse reactions as I did. I'm super sensitive to everything. Neither of us had miraculous results. But neither of us were overweight or unhealthy. We like the Limu for keeping sickness away. I feel it really kicks virus butt and I haven't been sick in months. Whenever I feel a cold coming on, I take Limu and so far it's worked! My boyfriend and I both felt a little sick after drinking the shake, so we didn't really take that, and that was the main weight loss product. But I'm lactose intolerant so that's probably why I didn't like the shake. Blufrog, is just plain awesome. It's my happy drink when I need a little boost from sluggishness.

    Regarding the business, I lost money. People in LA didn't even want to look at it or try it. I think they were too focused on careers and/or too jaded. I went into it thinking it was everyone making sure everyone succeeded. But that was only to a point. Yeah, they're happy to coach you and come to your parties, but I thought the upline would be supporting me with trickle down business so I could succeed. If your upline isn't bringing in a lot of people, there won't be a lot of people to trickle down to you. And then a lot of the trickle down is won through contests. So if you're not a top seller, you likely won't be winning contests which means you won't be getting the extra help. If you have a friend above you who is doing well and feels attached to making sure you succeed, you have a chance. If not, you're on your own. It's a business. You gotta be out there making contacts and inviting people. It's not necessarily as easy as marketed.

    So at the end of the day, I say, yes get some Limu. Have it on hand for sickness and try it for weight loss. My friend really slimmed down from taking the shakes (and she was already thin!). It depends on your body. And I say get the Blufrog. I love it and for me it's better than coffee. It gives me just the boost I need to get work done. Regarding the business, I would only do it if you have a huge network of stay at home moms in a small town or suburbs, because those are the only ones who really seem to be making money off of it.

    I hope this helps! Please feel free to ask me more questions!


    1. sounds like you were going thru the detox, and needed to flush it with water.

  3. hello, your blog has inspired me to make one of my own, I have just signed up for LIMU and I want to share my true and honest experience, either good or bad. I will be sharing by video blog updates on how LIMU makes me feel physically and emotionally day by day. Also I decided to become a promoter, so I also want to share my financial accomplishments (or non-accomplishments) with being a promoter of LIMU. I have only just signed up and am waiting for my LIMU to come in. I will be updating my blog with 2-5 times a week. If anyone is interested in seeing the results of (my experience with) LIMU and would like to follow me through my personal experience please visit my blog also! Thank you!

    1. So here is my update to this discussion. I have been taking LIMU for about a month now. I used to be a professional athlete and have been dealing with major joint pain all day everyday in basically every joint imaginable. This has been the case for the last 12 years. One of the major issues that caused me to have to give up my baseball career was the bone on bone grinding and pain in my L5 S1 joint (also know as the sacroiliac joint). I've tried everything imaginable to reduce all the pain from pain killers to rehab with no change or forseeable end in sight. Within the last 4 years I had all but given up hope of finding any sign of a cure or help. I had gotten to the point where sleep was virtually impossible, playing with my kids was impossible most days and working out wasnt an option.

      I was told about LIMU by my father who is a promoter and thought that at this point there was no reason for me not to give it a try. I started taking the original (4 oz/day) and in less than 3 days the pain in my joints began to subside. I was still skeptical, but continued to take it just to see. In a weeks time I can honestly say that the pain in my joints was gone. Not only that, but all of a sudden I noticed that I was able to focus better on tasks. So I continued. To make a long story short, I have been taking the original for a little over a month and I have no more joint pain, much more energy, no back pain, and I have begun to work out again. I feel great. I have been taking the shakes as well. I've been walking at least 2 miles per day as well as been in the gym working out for the last 4 days. I started the 90 day LIMU challange and have felt better than I have in at least 12 years. I became a promoter recently as well only because I truly believe that this product works. I am proof.

    2. Odis my name is Steven Theriot. I'm reading your post, and looking at my x-rays and I've received the same news from my doctors. The same scenario, and pain. I've been an athlete all my life, received a college scholarship to play soccer, etc. etc.. I joined Limu through a friend and I've received no pain and I'm looking forward to my next visit to the doctor to see what he has to say! My name Steven Theriot and I AM LIMU!

  6. My mother has been drinking and promoting limun for almost a year and I wanted nothing to do with it. When I finally started drinking LIMU I could tell an immediate change in my allergy problems and I was sleeping more soundly at night. I haven't been drinking long so I can't wait to see the changes that are still coming my way. Limu changes lives!!! It really does help so many people in so many different ways. Contact me so I can share my experience and tell you more about LIMU!!!

E-mail me or check out my website and let me help you head down the path to a happier and healthier life!

  11. Hi, my name is Elisha, 35 & from Louisiana. My sister recently joined Limu & insisted I start drinking the original. When I was 19 I broke my neck in a car accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury that left me paralyzed from the chest down so I do have some aches & pains from yrs of sitting in this wheelchair. I don't really consider myself super unhealthy but I'm no way near & health fanatic. Turning 35 in December really made me realize I need to try to prolong any good health for as long as I can because being unhealthy makes my daily struggles even harder. I just finished my second bottle of the original juice after drinking two shots every day & today I had my first lean shake. Over the last 6 months I've gained weight & for the first time in my life weight is a problem. I've always been average with a normal weight. The extra pounds are affecting everything I do in a negative way & since my activity is limited I'm hoping limu lean can really help me out. I'm going to drink two shakes a day & try to eat a healthy meal in the evening. I'm wondering if it's possible to still loose a few pounds or inches without the other two products for the lean package. After reading this blog I realized I must have been experiencing the detox after my first bottle because I started getting a cold or upper respiratory problem, running a low fever & felt totally wiped out. My sister is hoping I see all these wonderful changes & almost expects me to be able to stop some of my medications. I feel pressure to give her a good report lol. After two months, roughly, I can't really name anything that's changed for me. I can only say I feel like I just feel better throughout the day other than that respiratory issue briefly. Unlike my sister I'm going to wait three months before I say yes or no to limu. It can't possibly make you worse so why not. Can any of you answer my question about the lean meal replacement shake? Thank you all for taking time to share your experience.

    1. Try Plexus Slim, this is a story from my daughter so I know it really works........................My personal story:
      For the last twenty years I've suffered with chronic headaches/migraines. I have also been tired all the time with overall body aches & pains the past several years. I never felt rested no matter how much sleep I got. I felt miserable most days physically........
      Now after only 10 days on plexusslim I have not had one headache. I haven't had to take one medication for them. I have more evergy & wake up feeling rested & refreshed. I got up early this morning & on the first alarm I didn't even hit snooze. When I told my husband last night what time I was planning on getting up he laughed & said I can count how many times you have been up that early in the 8 1/2 years we have been married. Well I did it and feel great! I thank God for bringing this into my life.

  12. Elisha Winstead, if you do not have any success with LIMU shoot me a message at . I am also in Louisiana :) I recently joined a publicly traded company that is University Validated and carries 6 U.S patents. I was very skeptical, whereas I had tried another product with no luck physically or financially. I was approached with this amazing opportunity by my daughter’s softball coach and refused to even look at it :( Almost a year later my dad (most skeptical person I know) approached me with the same product insisting I try it and join the company. He had already taken the product for 4 months and was off of almost all of his pain meds (he suffers with fibromyalgia). I didn’t think it was helping me, I guess because I didn’t “feel” anything when I took it. Well you’re not supposed to; it’s not full of caffeine!! After 3 days I was sleeping better and so rested when I woke up and no more waking like I’m 80 when I get out of the… Then I really saw a difference when I was cutting the grass and made it through the front, back and side yard and the ditch without taking a break! I usually don’t get through the front…sad I know… WEIGHT – didn’t think I was losing and I’m not one to get on the scale, but I but on a pair of jeans Monday and they were so lose I could not wear them :) :) :) So I proceeded to get on the scale to see I lost 8lbs. and obviously several inches!! IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON THIS AMAZING PRODUCT AND COMPANY SHOOT ME A MESSAGE.
