Mangosteen Juice Health Benefits. Mango Xan Juice.

Article / Review by on January 26, 2011 – 7:25 amOne Comment

The Mangosteen fruit is native to the Southeast Asian countries. Nicknamed “The Queen of Fruits,” the Mangosteen has been revered for centuries in folk medicine for its ability to help support overall great health including inflammation and many other systems.

The scientific name for the Mangosteen is (Garcinia Mangostana L.) The Mangosteen is not related to the mango. Mangosteen fruit has a thick peel or hull. Inside the hull is a soft, white, segmented fruit. The flavor of the fruit is uniquely sweet and very appealing.

Medicinal properties of mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana).

mangosteen fruitMany tropical plants have interesting biological activities with potential therapeutic applications. Garcinia mangostana Linn. (GML) belongs to the family of Guttiferae and is named “the queen of fruits”. It is cultivated in the tropical rainforest of some Southeast Asian nations like Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, and Thailand. People in these countries have used the pericarp (peel, rind, hull or ripe) of GML as a traditional medicine for the treatment of abdominal pain, diarrhea, dysentery, infected wound, suppuration, and chronic ulcer.

Experimental studies have demonstrated that mangosteen extracts have antioxidant, antitumoral, antiallergic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral activities.

Mangosteen fruits, Garcinia mangostana L. [Guttiferae], were mentioned in Chinese medicinal records dating back to the Ming dynasty (1360 to 1644 AD). Alpha- and γ-mangostins from G. mangostana are identified as bioactive substances with anti-inflammatory effects

Mangosteen Juice Side Effects

Only one case of a serious adverse event possibly related to mangosteen juice has been reported. Doctors described a daily user of mangosteen juice who developed lactic acidosis (acidic blood due to buildup of a byproduct of sugar metabolism). Because mangosteen juice is quite popular and most users do not develop lactic acidosis, the doctors suggest that this problem may have resulted from an interaction of this supplement with other drugs he was taking.

No other ill effects have been reported to date. As with all plants, allergies may be possible. Because of its antioxidant effects, mangosteen supplements may make radiation therapy or chemotherapy less effective. While this concern is based largely on theories of how cancer treatments work, it is supported by some recent studies. For this reason, people being treated for cancer should speak with their doctors before taking this supplement.

Q: How does the Xanthone content of Mango•xan compare with other Mangosteen-based supplements?

A: The Mangosteen fruit is loaded with Xanthones. Of the more than 40 Xanthones found in the fruit and peel, alpha-mangostin is considered the most active Xanthone and has been widely studied for its health benefits. In an independent study performed by American Analytical Labs in 2005, Mango•xan’s Xanthone content (as measured by its alpha-mangostin content) was found to be:

• 120% higher that Thai-Go

• 3100% higher than XANGO

• 6300% higher than both Naturally Thai Mangosteen and Dynamic Health’s Mangosteen

Q: What are the main differences between Mango•xan and other Mangosteen-based supplements?

A: Mango•xan® is a 100 percent pure fruit product that has higher Xanthone content and superior ORAC value than other Mangosteen supplements.

• Mango•xan contains a unique Mangosteen peel extract of potent xanthones

• Pure Fruit Technologies’ state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and standards allow Mango•xan to be produced with no preservatives and no added gums, pectins, artificial flavors or fillers

• Because Pure Fruit Technologies sells Mango•xan wholesale to health food retailers as well as directly to consumers through their website, the price of Mango•xan is usually much lower than other Mangosteen based nutritional products at $19.95 per bottle, or less at wholesale, (compared to $35+ per bottle for competing products)

Q: Does Mango•xan include the pulp, seeds, and pericarp of the Mangosteen?

A: Mango•xan uses a puree of the Mangosteen whole fruit including pulp and seeds — the whole fruit portion that can be scooped out from inside the pericarp/hull of the fruit. Pure Fruit Technologies uses a “peel extract” containing high concentrations of xanthones from the peel of the fruit. This extract is added into the juice as an ingredient during production. While other Mangosteen-based juices add small amounts of the actual pericarp to their product as the “vehicle” to supply xanthones, Pure Fruit Technologies uses a more sophisticated method of Xanthone extraction resulting in higher amounts of xanthones in Mango•xan without all the “floaters” and “sludge” of ground-up, bitter pericarp in the drink.

: Where is Mango•xan formulated and produced?

Pure Fruit Technologies produces  MangoXan in a state-of-the-art facility located in American Fork, Utah. This facility meets all the FDA guidelines known as GMP’s (Good Manufacturing Practices).

Since 2002, Pure Fruit Technologies, a manufacturer of healthy, exotic, whole-fruit juice supplements, has searched the globe for exotic fruits that deliver an array of health benefits, including mangosteen, seabuckthorn and goji, and brought them to consumers in the form of potent, high-quality and delicious juice supplements. Pure Fruit Technologies’ products are made from the whole fruit and are sold wholesale to health food retailers and distributors worldwide, as well as direct-to-consumers online.

Over 100 quality assurance tests from the time the fruit is harvested to the final bottling of the product.

Mangoxan Mangosteen Juice Reviews

MangoXan testimonials from their website

By: Loene A. – I have osteoarthritis in my right knee and am limited in my ability to walk. Whenever I sit down for any length of time, I have a difficult time standing up as my knee “locks” and I have to rise slowly until it unlocks and I have to walk slowly at first. It has been like this for three years. After one week on Mangoxan (5 oz. daily) I suddenly realized I was standing up and walking normally. I have taken Celebrex ever since my knee scope almost three years ago. I take it once a day, but I am going to see how I do without it for a few days. I have also been able to discontinue my antibiotic for my skin, another plus.

By: Cheri M. – A few weeks ago I picked my daughter (12.5 yrs. old) up from after school with a fever around 99.4. I decided, after hearing another mom use Mangoxan to bring down her child’s fever, that this was how we were going to work with her fever. I gave her 1.5 ounces every 2-3 hours and watched her closely.

Five hours later her fever peaked at 103.4, so I continued a close watch and faithfully gave her Mangoxan and liquids. I checked an hour later and her fever had come down to 103 so continued every 2 hrs. Her last dose was around 3:00a.m. She was resting well so I settled down after having my Mangoxan!

At 7:00 a.m. I woke to go check her again. Much to my shock and surprise she was sitting in bed, reading a book, bright eyed asking me if she could go to school!! She gave me a puzzled look as I just stared at her. And said no, you had a very high fever and I am going to watch you today! Her fever NEVER returned!

In my experience as a mom for 17 yrs, and as a teacher for 8 yrs, I have not heard of any child getting beyond a high fever like hers in that short of time. Plus bounce back with energy like she did.

Oh, did I mention- she loves her Mangoxan and makes sure she has hers every day.

Customer review of mangosteen juice benefits found on the web:

Mangosteen Juice Mango Xan I am a cancer patient who uses mangosteen juice and love it..I have not lost my hair during chemo..I have lots of energy and feel really good…you can email me at [edited out] with any questions for me…I would be happy to help. Gloria

Mangosteen Juice Mango Xan Vicky from Pekin, IL.  – Mangosteen has changed my life.

I watch Oprah and Dr. Oz every chance I get. Thank you DVR! I am a “baby boomer” and really have taken notice of my health in the last couple of years as I get nearer to the 60 yr. mark. I was so excited to see Dr. Oz mention one the the fruits that I added to my diet 2 years ago this month. The mangosteen! To share my “story”. I have acid-reflux so bad that the Dr. had wanted to stomach surgery for about 3 years. I told him “no” just give me the strongest “purple pill” you can. I knew what foods I could and couldn’t eat. I also had arthritic pain that comes as we grow older. I LIVED on Advil for years. As I stated, I added the mangosteen fruit juice, XANGO, 2 years ago. The first thing I noticed was the joints didn’t ache. Bye,bye Advil! Next, was the increased energy!!! After drinking XANGO for 1 1/2 months, I decided to see how long I could go without my purple pill. I knew from the past, I couldn’t go more than 24 hours without being sick. Quess what, I didn’t get sick. The next month, I had a Dr.s’ appointment and I shared with him the info on my “juice” and told him I hadn’t taken my purple pill for about a month and felt fine. I was to have a scope done to check for any throat scare tissue which would indicate a concern of cancer. My Dr. told me to go ahead and drink the juice but contact him if I begin having trouble and we would do a scope in 6 months. Six months later, got the scope and everything is fine. Thanks to adding mangosteen to my diet, I feel better than I did in my 30’s. Talk about turning back the clock!!!

Mangosteen Juice Mango Xan I have only been taking mangosteen juice (good price at Puritan Pride) for two weeks but definitely notice that the sinuses, which were impairing my hearing, are much better and my ears haven’t plugged up since starting mangosteen juice. With the price I get, it is worth it. I also feel that at this older age, my muscles become less sore.

    Mmmm, absolutely right! This is the best tasting mangosteen juice I have ever tried. Much better than that Xango which is all hype anyway (and rep commissions, you’re right about that too).

    I don’t think I’ll be changing brands anytime soon, unless something REALLY better comes along but considering the quality of Mangoxan – that’s doubtful.
