Whilst undergoing aggressive chemo for Burkitts Lymphoma stage 4, my taste changed and was sensitive to most things. I found Mamaku Blue Blueberry Juice to be refreshing and delicious. Being full of antioxidants and vitamin c it has helped bolster my immunity during treatment.

I recently purchased Mamaku Blue-Pure, a blueberry juice, during my travel to Rotorua a month ago. I want to share my experience with the product and how it has positively impacted my joint pain. I struggled with joint pain for a while and decided to try Mamaku Blue-Pure, recommended by a friend who is a regular user. I consumed the recommended amount of juice daily for the past month, and I am delighted to share that it has made a noticeable difference in reducing my joint pain. I began experiencing relief from joint pain within a couple of weeks. The pain, which used to be constant and uncomfortable, has significantly decreased in intensity. Apart from its effectiveness, I must emphasize the delightful taste and quality of Mamaku Blue-Pure. The juice has a smooth and refreshing flavour with a subtle hint of sweetness that is not overpowering. The blueberries used in this product are of exceptional quality, resulting in a truly enjoyable drinking experience. What truly sets Mamaku Blue-Pure apart is its commitment to providing a natural and pure product. Knowing that it contains no additives or preservatives gives me confidence in its authenticity and health benefits. It is reassuring to know that I am consuming a product free from artificial ingredients. THANK YOU!!!

I am on my sections shipment of mamaku Blue blueberry juice & I couldn’t be happier. I have been fighting long covid for over 12 months & it had caused damage to my kidneys & the inflammation in my joints made every step I took extremely painful. The doctors can’t believe the changes in my kidneys & my joints are free from pain. I still have a few hurdles to make but the improvement since taking a daily shot of Mamaku Blue has been remarkable. All my friends & family have started taking it as well.

I’ve been taking mamaku blue 100% Pure Blueberry Juice for 2 months now .. 100mls pure juice in the morning .. and have seen an improvement in my renal function bloodwork over that timeframe

Vic - November 3, 2022

I have been using Mamaku Blue 100pct blueberry juice for about 8 years and found amazing  results to my health. My knee pain and gout were gone.

Will - October 30, 2022

As a result of an accident in my late teens in which I sustained many broken bones and joints including my spine, I developed in later years, severe arthritis, fibromyalgia and associated pain and my G.P. put me on ani-inflammatory medication.

Although this helped my condition overtime the medication attacked my kidneys and they began to fail. A change of doctor and a change of medication did slow down the kidney failure, but even so my levels continued to drop.

I was then fortunate to come across Mamaku Blue and I began taking 100ml of their Pure Blueberry Juice every day. Sometime later while attending my Renal Doctor, he told me my blood tests had shown improvement including creatinine levels and urea and when I began to tell him what I was taking he said, “You don’t need to tell me what you are doing or taking…. your lab results show your kidney function as being reasonably stabilised so just keep doing it”

I believe that taking Mamaku Blueberry Juice every morning for some years now is what has kept me alive and reasonably healthy. I will continue taking Mamaku Juice for the positive results of my kidney function and for its many positive health benefits. As well as helping me manage my age-related conditions I find it helps keep my joint and back pain under control, so I don’t need to take any kidney damaging medication

As an added benefit in dealing with Mamaku Blue, in the 3 or 4 times I have had reason to communicate with them over the years, I have been totally impressed with their considerate, helpful, and very personable business-like manner.

Thank you, Mamaku Blue, for your wonderful Pure Blueberry Juice which has my absolute recommendation for anyone with similar challenges.

Chau - October 28, 2022

We started on our blueberry juice journey with Mamaku Blue a year ago on recommendation.  Never looked back since and are now on a regular subscription.
Our journey started after being diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and the other effects that came along with it like having to look after my kidneys, liver etc. Monthly blood tests showed a good consistent level maintained after taking blueberry juice.  In addition, Mamaku Blueberry juice tasted superb and has made me a convert.
We have recommended Mamaku to our extended family who are now also regular subscribers

Wayne - October 27, 2022

My wife and I started taking Mamaku Blue Blueberry juice because we had heard of the positive effects it has on health in general, but more specifically the benefits for improving eye conditions. I was diagnosed with having glaucoma earlier this year. Initially, I took eye drops which helped to reduce the pressure readings but not enough, so laser treatment was recommended.I had the laser treatment and again, the pressure readings reduced but not enough, so I had them done again. The follow up to the second treatment was more positive but my ophthalmologist talked about using the eye drops again. I wasn’t keen on that so when I heard about Mamaku Blue I thought, ‘why not’, so I did. My wife takes it because of the health benefits of it.I recently went to my ophthalmologist again and he said my pressure readings were now normal. I told him about the Blueberry juice and he agreed that it would most probably have been the reason why they reduced. If I wasn’t convinced by the blueberry juice before, I am now.I will be a buyer for life. Thank you so much for having a product that is helping me to retain my normal eye sight, with no glaucoma.

My 96 yr old father is in renal failure. His eGFR was down to 16 a yearago and  his doctor told us that he would likely only survive anotherfew months. We started him on Mamaku Blueberry juice and a few monthslater his eGFR was up to 22! He continues to have a small glass of juiceeach morning and absolutely loves it!

Liz - October 27, 2022

I been having Mamaku Blue blueberry juice daily for many years after being diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. In fact my never boring daily breakfast consists of corn flakes, fruit, a spoonful  of probiotic yoghurt generously moistened with your fabulous blueberry juice. I love it and my health condition has remained pretty stable. 

Pam - October 12, 2022

I have a very strong belief that taking 75 - 100mls of Mamaku Blueberry Juice every morning since before 2019 is what has kept my husband alive and healthy. He has been suffering from Chronic Kidney and Bladder Disease since 2017. In Feb 2019 1 kidney was removed and the other is in poor condition. Between February 2019 and today, he has undergone 4 major operations and pulled through better than anyone expected. Now at 78yrs, he is still working a 35 - 40 hour week and still waiting for the time when he will have to go on dialysis. We both enjoy this product and highly recommend it to everyone. Healthy living along with Mamaku Blueberry Juice is the way to a happy life.

Johanne - September 29, 2022

I am now 91 year old and have enjoyed the juice for more than 10 years and I feel it is helping me with my Macula Degeneration. I feel it is slowing down the progression of the disease.

Elaine - winter, 2022

Dear Anne and your wonderful team,

A very belated thank you for making our birthday party such a memorable one. I must thank you on a personal note for making all the decisions so easy, and remembering all the little details. Your communications were clear and helpful, always giving me an alternative or a suggestion, much appreciated. Everyone had a great time, and innumerable friends mentioned what a splendid venue and all commented on the quality of the food, how tasty it was. Harry was so kind and gentle in welcoming everyone and in unobtrusively monitoring our grandchildren. The mothers were very appreciative, and our guests enjoyed the conversations of the venue. We will visit again for a quiet cuppa and to enjoy the views. Thank you once again, and we wish you well in your  ongoing endeavours with Mamaku Blue. Kind regards, Elaine

Anne-Marie - October 6, 2021

I was diagnosed with an acute kidney injury in July 2021. I am loving the Mamaku Blue pure blueberry juice, and I drink a 120ml neat shot every morning. Delicious flavour. The good news is my GFR levels have improved well (back to the normal range) after only two months. Both myself and my GP are impressed! I'll keep on drinking it daily.

Jacob G & Anneke van D, Holland - June, 2020

Last February we were in New Zealand, with a group of farmers. One of our visits was at your "farm".

We've got a warm welcome, a wonderful tour in a special kind of train, and you- Harry- told us all about the berries. You let us taste them, right from the plant, especially fresh.

After that we were invited in the gift shop and the blueberry cafe. You played on the pianola for us. It was a wonderful event.

I had a special feeling, I felt "at home". You told about your life, the children, what is important for you and we shared our ideas.

I want to thank you again for the great experience.

Lots of love from Holland.

Debbie, Australia - June 2020

Hi, I am currently doing dialysis and by doing some research I found this juice that was supposed to be great for the kidneys.

I began taking the blueberry juice and my blood tests were greatly improved including creatinine levels and urea. I stopped because I assumed covid had stopped all international shipping and I noticed that I began to feel tired and not so well. Numbers again creeped up and blood pressure was unstable. I ordered some more juice that will arrive by boat but I’m looking forward to feeling well again. The juice has got a lovely taste which is an added bonus considering how good it is for my health .

Candy, Auckland - March 19, 2020

I have been buying Blueberry juice as a health tonic for some time now, but I have recently noticed that’s it’s really good for my eyes too, making them less tired and more lively - an unexpected side-benefit, thanks! *Results may vary.

Ruth, Auckland - February 18, 2020

Thank you Mamaku Blue. For more than a month now I have been eating more than a cupful of your blueberries which I purchased from your stall in Greylyn Farmers Market. I experienced smooth walking uphill. I used to run out of breath before and also with less sleep. Now a miracle has happened. No more breathlessness and sound sleep. For me, it has given me a new lease of life with this superfood. Thank you Mamaku Blue for these Miracle Blueberries. *Results may vary.

Alison, Wairarapa - July 1, 2019

Dear Mamaku Team, My husband has Chronic Kidney Disease and was at STAGE 5. Now after 12 weeks of drinking your blueberry juice, following a kidney-friendly diet, plus having half a cup of fresh blueberries each day, he is now back to Stage 4! We are sure the juice is doing something pretty good for him! *Results may vary.

Jessie - July 1, 2019

Dear Mamaku team, My wife and I visited your winery and farm several weeks ago and had a great time. The blueberry wines were delicious! Thank you for providing a great experience to visitors!

Fiona H, Rotorua - April 30, 2019

Last year my kidney function dropped to 25% and since finding Mamaku Blue juice 6 months ago it has climbed to 40%. I am also a type 1 diabetic and have been for 42 years. I note that it doesn’t affect my blood sugar levels too much. I intend to continue taking this Mamaku juice for its many positive health benefits as well as the positive result to my kidney function. *Results may vary.

Rebecca - November 21, 2018

“My husband has so many health issues and after reading online of the health benefits of blueberries, I decided to order Mamaku Blueberry juice for him to try. He did enjoy it and he said the juice is helping him a lot but for some reason I stopped ordering. The beginning of this year he was in the hospital two times with pneumonia and he was really sick and was on so many antibiotics. That’s when I asked him if he wanted to order the juice again and he said yes. In July this year was when I placed another order and the juice has helped him a lot he takes 150mls every morning and will continue ordering the juice. I would recommend the blueberry juice to anyone. Results may vary.”

S.E.Bootten - October 17, 2018

“Since I have been taking Mamaku Blueberry juice I have noticed a definite improvement in energy levels plus the pain in my back has reduced considerably allowing me to get through the normal daily chores with ease. I ran out and developed a head cold but once back onto this amazing juice my cold was gone in two days. I would not hesitate in recommending this product.”* *Results may vary.

Raewyn Malaquin - March 27, 2018

“Hi, I would just like to share this info with you. I have had fibromyalgia for around 10 years, I started having a cup of blueberries in my smoothies every day for the past two years. The amazing thing is I am now off all my medication. I can get out there and have a normal life again. Thank you Mamaku Blue and your precious little natural blueberries. Raewyn. “* *Results may vary.

Lily, Auckland - August 1, 2017

We live in Auckland and have a son David (14) who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes four years ago. He has been on insulin since then. A few weeks ago we started to give him Mamaku Blue Juice daily and noticed that Davids blood sugar has been consistently lower than before. He does not seem to have as many spikes in sugar levels as he did before. We feel that the juice has definitely helped stabilize his sugar levels and we have therefore started to give him much lesser insulin than we have been giving him prior to having the juice. David has a sensor on his arm that detects his blood sugar levels and so we regularly observe how he is doing through the day and night. Since having the juice we have noticed a remarkable stability in his sugar levels right through the day. We are hugely grateful for your juice and wanted to say thank you!* *Results may vary.

Ronnie A. - July 19, 2017

My dad takes your blueberry drink 250 mls a day and the reason behind was his kidney function was going down, I believe your product is helping him in maintaining his kidney function at same levels and might also be helping in improving his GFR [Glomerular Filtration Rate]. I strongly recommend this product as if you’re in that situation you have to try and hope for the best.* *Results may vary.

Talosaga A, Samoa - October 31, 2015

We are from Samoa and my husband was advised that most probably he will have dialysis early this year. This was last year. He began searching in the Internet for help and he found Mamaku Blueberry Juice. After taking Mamaku Blueberry Juice for 6 months plus having a diabetic diet his glucose level is now normal and he is not taking anymore Metformin tablet which he used to take a daily dose and also the specialist has also told him that his kidneys have no clots and they are stabilized. We highly recommend Mamaku Blueberry Juice to everyone who has diabetic and kidney problems. We would like everyone with this problem to know that there is a solution.

Barry - December 13, 2013

Since starting blueberry juice in March 13 my type 2 diabetes has improved and glucose test results indicate excellent control and they now say that I am pre diabetic.

Eturangi, September 9, 2013

I am a diabetic with type 2 diabetes on insulin which gave complications to my kidney. I was seen by the doctor on a monthly basis to monitor the function of my kidney, but on my fifth visit to the doctor I was told that my next appointment will be in a year’s time. I believe the Mamaku Blueberry Juice made a difference. I use to have trouble with my eyesight giving me blurred vision when my sugar level reading rises in the 10 to 15 range. The Blueberry Juice has made a difference – today my eyesight is clear. The Mamaku Blueberry Juice is a blessing – Thanks to Anne and the team at Mamaku Blue.

Ennie, Auckland - June 1, 2013

Dear Anne at Mamaku Blue, I was diagnosed with high grade ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in December 2012. I had a lumpectomy in January 2013 and needed to undergo 25 sessions of radiotherapy after the surgery. I started taking your blueberry juice once I knew that I was going to have the lumpectomy done. I continue taking it through and well after my radiation therapy. My wound healed within 5 days of the operation and during the course of my radiation therapy, I only experienced minor discomfort. My skin was not burned, peeled or torn in any way. The doctor and nurses were very pleased with how well my skin held up throughout the radiotherapy. I can only attribute it to the blueberry juice I took thus far. I would have no hesitation to recommend the juice to any one for their wellbeing at any time. Thank you.
