Charlie Sheen's

'Tiger Blood'

Revealed!

3/10/2011 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's kept his "Tiger Blood" cocktail a secret while waiting for an official sponsorship deal -- but TMZ has learned the secret beverage he's sipping is something called ... Mangosteen?!

0220_charlie_sheen_getty
Mangosteen is a rare Southeast Asian fruit -- and a puree of the stuff is bottled and sold as XANGO juice. The bottler claims the juice helps maintain intestinal, joint, and immune system health ... and also promotes a healthy respiratory system.

Charlie and health drinks may not sound like a perfect match, but friends close to Sheen tell us he "drinks the stuff everyday" -- and though publicly he's been referring to it as tiger blood ... privately he calls it his "mango drink."

As of now XANGO hasn't tapped Charlie to be a spokesperson. Sources connected with the company tell us they are "very nervous" about being associated with the actor.

They weren't too nervous to come forward and claim that their product was the drink that he was referring to as tigerblood though.. hypocrites! Free advertising without paying CS.. brilliant move!

The health benefits do not come from eating the fruit, it comes from the rind which is also pureed into mangosteen juice through a cold process as to not damage the nutrients. It is also mixed with a variety of other fruit juices to sweeten it because the rind is very bitter. It would be like eating a pomegranate rind and all. I no longer buy into Xango because you can find the juice at health food stores for less without the pyramid scheme. But with any drink high in antioxidents there are benefits.
As for it being tiger blood, I dunno about that. But it goes great with vodka.

Is this what made him crazy? Is this what gave him hypomania?

Mueller wants Sheen to have Psych Eval before seeing Kids - Radar is reporting:

"Sheen's behavior has been growing increasingly alarming and disturbing, showcased over the last four days during his Sheen’s Korner Ustream nightly webcast rants.

"Brooke is extremely concerned for the safety of Bob and Max when it comes to being with their father,” the source tells RadarOnline.com. “She is demanding that Charlie get a full mental health examination before he is allowed to have his next visit with the boys.

“Brooke will not waiver on this demand, period. The mental health professional would be someone that both parties agree to, however, Charlie is absolutely refusing to undergo any examination, period."

It's obvious he's has Phillipe Brunelle & his lawyers telling him he's got to tone it down. I imagine he's not taking that well but he's doing it. I don't normally watch CNN but they have a great interview with Pinsky (?) & that white haired young guy talking about Charlie and Hypomania which occurs when the drugs are taken away. Pinsky says he sees this behavior all the time and it's really common. Says Sheen will come down, and if he doesn't get medications and dr's help, he will be back on the drugs at some point.

Mangosteen has been around for quite some time and is not a passing fad. Maybe the Xango thing is a pyramid scheme, but in the Asian culture, mangosteen has been used for centuries to help with various conditions. In this country, it's been used by those into health food/natural cures for at least 30 - 40 years. I use to get really bad migraines and was on medication for them, which didn't always work. I was looking for a natural way to treat them and found a bunch of info on mangosteen. I tried it (not Xango - from a health food store) and it worked. I now drink a bit every day and haven't had a migraine in almost 4 years. It's just like any other supplement, it works for some people, it doesn't for others.

DUH, IT's THE JUCIE!! Now this all makes perfect sense! I have a relative who got into this pyramid marketing years ago with a similar juice. He was drinking this stuff all the time. He sent me a case and I also began drinking it. About two weeks into this I realized I was staying up later, and later every night. It happened so quickly and with zero side effects. No jitters, etc. I called to warn him but it was too late. He was already manic and delusional. The family ended up having to involuntarily commit him. Turns out there was a family history of bi-polar no one was aware of. Moral of this story...be careful what you consume. This is so sad to witness as it now seems Charlie really believed he was cleaning up his act by quitting with the drinking and drugs. Sure he thought this juice would make him healthy. Two things need to happen here. First get this juice away from Charlie, and then get him into a facility on lithium to calm him down. It was very hard for the family, as the person does not believe they are in danger and/or a danger to others.

"rare" my ass. Fresh mangosteen fruit are bought in Thailand by the dozen - which costs about 50 cents. Someone is having a huge laugh at rich morons like Sheen's great expense.

Mangosteen is not rare and it may lead to acidosis if consumed regularly.

Dur!

Tiger blood? Nay. Delicious? Meh.

Charlie's unemployed and becoming unemployable.

Dur! Losing!

There was an episode of MASH focusing on Alan Alda's character giving up drinking, and then his subsequent behavior driving everyone else crazy...abnormal energy, motor-mouth, etc. Sound familiar, Charlie?
