Mango what? Man-go-steen

For centuries, the varied cultures and societies of Southeast Asia have revered the mangosteen. Although the mangosteen has been touted for its splendid flavor, it has also been suggested that use of the whole mangosteen fruit can promote good health. In fact, the whole mangosteen fruit - especially the xanthone - packed rind (pericarp) - has also been utilized in folk medicine to treat a variety of health conditions. As early as 600 AD, scribes in Southeast Asia recorded the use of the mangosteen as a general remedy and healing agent.

Mangosteen: "The Queen of Fruits"

The early benefits of the mangosteen are both broad and convincing. Legend even has it that Queen Victoria offered knighthood to any subject who could bring her a mangosteen fruit in prime condition. Sadly, no one succeeded in delivering the mangosteen. According to the legend, the virtual impossibility of preserving the fruit during the weeks-long journey prohibited anyone outside of the growing regions from enjoying the sensational flavor of the mangosteen. But, some have suggested that thanks to the Queen's admirable quest, the fruit achieved the heralded title, "Queen of Fruits", a name still used by mangosteen adorers around the globe. In Thailand the mangosteen fruit is so popular that it has become the National Fruit of Thailand. Ever since XanGo was launched in the United States it has ranked as one of the top 10 trends to watch and been talked and written about on TV shows like the Oprah Winfrey Show, Shape Mahazine, Readers Digest, Men's Health, Sports Illustrated, Playboy and The New York Times.

Where To Buy The Mangosteen Fruit?

If you live in South East Asia then of course thats a simple question to answer, you can get it anywhere. During season you can buy it at the roadside for the equivalent of US$ 1 to US$ 3 per kilo

Of course once you go through this website you will know that it is not the sweet and tasty pulp that gives you all the healthy benefits but merly the rind, the part that you have been throwing away all this time.

Come to think about you have been throwing away a million-dollar business :)

Now if you live in Europe or the US then we are talking about a totaly different price range. Only recently the mangosteen fruit was imported for the first time ever into the United States and the price for just one fruit is ranging from between US$ 10 and US$ 15. In Germany for example if you are able to find it anywhere in the first place then the price for 1 kilo of Mangosteen ranges between € 18 and € 22.

But this is exactly where the business opportunity comes in, because its hard to find mangosteen outside of Asia and because its so highly priced, our delicious premium class Mangosteen whole fruit juice comes handy and thats why XanGo is the fastest growing supplement in the world today.

What makes the Mangosteen so unique?

Among the powerful phytonutrients found in the rind of the mangosteen, xanthones stand alone in their impressive benefits. Scientific studies suggest xanthones may promote healthy bodily function. The whole mangosteen fruit, packed with naturally occurring xanthones, may help:

  • maintain intestinal health*
  • strengthen the immune system*
  • neutralize free radicals*
  • support cartilage and joint function*
  • promote a healthy seasonal respiratory system*

Xanthones in Mangosteen

Researchers have identified dozens of biologically active xanthones in the mangosteen fruit. Today, researchers are just beginning to uncover the powerful scientific properties behind the mangosteen fruit.

What are Xanthones?

Xanthones are:

  • A unique class of biologically active compounds possessing numerous bioactive capabilities - such as antioxidant properties.
  • A restricted group of plant polyphenols, biosynthetically related to the flavonoids.

    • polyphenol - a group of plant chemical substances characterized by the presence of more than one phenolic group. Polyphenols are responsible for the color of some plants and are considered strong antioxidants with potential health benefits.
    • flavonoid - over 5,000 naturally occurring flavonoids have been characterized from various plants. The beneficial effects of plant-derived food are often attributed to flavonoid compounds - rather than known nutrients - as they show a wide range of biological effects.

  • Chemically speaking, planar-six carbon molecules in a conjugated ring system consisting of a backbone molecule and various chemical groups attached to it. The backbone consists of two benzene rings bridged through a carbonyl group and oxygen. Each ring is connected in a fused formation not allowing free rotation about the carbon-carbon bonds. This unique backbone along with type and position of the attached chemical groups define specific functionalities (properties) of xanthones.

Discovering Mangosteen: Joe's Story

The story of XanGo is straight and simple - It starts with one man and a café, and ends ... well, it doesn't end. And that's the best part of the story.

Joe Morton knew something was out there, something that would change the nutritional supplement landscape. He kept his eyes open; he scoured street markets and rural gardens. He had seen groundbreaking products before - aloe vera, cayenne, echinacea - and realized that the next revolution was just around the corner. And, as he sat in an open - air café in Southeast Asia, Joe found what he'd been looking for. Only it wasn't quite what he expected. The waiter delivered a fruit unlike any other, the revered and celebrated mangosteen fruit. The flavor was initially and completely sensational. Sweet, yet not overwhelming. Smooth, yet consistently intriguing. It defied description and invited inspection. His interest piqued, Joe asked questions. And answers arrived in piles.

The mangosteen was a dual-powered wonder, a fusion of fantastic flavor and health-promoting benefits. Almost sleeplessly attracted to its rare power, Joe immediately recognized the potential of the practically unknown mangosteen fruit. Fueled by the desire to share the mangosteen with the world, Joe dug deeper. He enlisted the research skills of medical professionals. And found stacks of supporting research. The findings even outpaced Joe's eternal optimism. And, with decades of research and studies, Joe knew that it was time for the world to learn about the Queen of Fruits, the mangosteen.
