The study was an 8-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study with a 2-week washout period for subjects who were currently taking anti-inflammatory or antioxidant products.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of multiple dosages of XanGo Juice compared with placebo in the improvement of inflammation and antioxidant levels in obese patients with a confirmed history of inflammation.
XanGo Juice was shown to reduce certain parameters of inflammation and to improve weight and body fat in an overweight population. These results may have implications in the future prevention of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, but longer studies will be needed to explore the role of inflammation in the reduction of these diseases.
XanGo Juice demonstrated an ability to reduce inflammation (as measured by HS-CRP), at all 3 dosages while the placebo group actually experienced a small increase in the amount of inflammation. HS-CRP decreased in all 3 dosages vs. placebo over the 8 week study with the 9 oz. XanGo Juice group being statistically significant when compared to placebo.
