What is XANGO Juice?
XANGO Juice is the original mangosteen beverage that captures the refreshing, sweet, tangy flavor and natural color of the mangosteen fruit. XANGO Juice’s proprietary, puree formula uses the whole mangosteen fruit, from its dark, reddish purple nutrient-dense rind to the white fleshy pulp – through which all of the mangosteen health benefits are delivered as nature intended.
What are xanthones?
While most people know about the antioxidant benefits of vitamins C and E, far fewer are aware of the incredibly potent antioxidant power of xanthones. Xanthones are powerful phytonutrients, naturally occurring nutrients found in plants, that have won high praise from numerous scientists and researchers. Major medical institutions around the world continue to study xanthones for their potential to support long-term health.
Why the name XANGO?
XANGO derives its name from two words: XAN from xanthones and GO from mangosteen.
Why hasn’t a mangosteen beverage been brought to market before XANGO Juice?
Many researchers around the world have wondered this same thing. The mangosteen and its xanthone-rich pericarp, or rind, have been used traditionally for thousands of years, and xanthones have been the subject of extensive positive scientific research. But until Joe Morton and the other founders of XANGO took the steps necessary to bring this fruit and its benefits to the world, no one else saw the vision. XANGO is the original, a true category creator.
Where does the mangosteen fruit come from?
Native to Southeast Asia and the national fruit of Thailand, the mangosteen is a delicate fruit that only grows under perfect conditions. Enthusiasts of the mangosteen have attempted to grow it elsewhere, but have experienced limited success in Australia and small pockets of South America and the Caribbean.
Is the harvesting of the mangosteen fruit environmentally friendly?
Fortunately, the mangosteen has its own natural defense against pests that includes a yellow latex that it excretes to smother any predators. Because of this, no pesticides are used on the crop that XANGO cultivates for its products. Likewise, XANGO chooses not to use other chemical treatments during the harvest.
What are the ingredients in XANGO Juice?
Rich in xanthones, the mangosteen pericarp helps to provide the nutrient power found in XANGO Juice while the pulp adds incredible flavor. XANGO Juice is made from a puree of the whole fruit that includes the rind, pulp and seeds. A few additional natural fruit juices are blended, according to a proprietary formula, to round off the flavor of the mangosteen rind and create XANGO Juice’s unique taste.
Is the amount of xanthones per bottle standardized?
XANGO Juice is a natural blend of the whole mangosteen fruit with no extracts. Because XANGO delivers whole fruit benefits, there are some slight variations from batch to batch due to the natural variations in the fruit.
Why does it seem that some bottles have more pericarp than others?
The pericarp, or rind, of the mangosteen is rich in natural xanthones. Even when pureed, the pericarp elements remain a solid suspended in liquid. Every bottle contains the same XANGO formula, but because settling occurs, some bottles will seem to contain more solids. Simply shake vigorously before serving.
How much mangosteen is in XANGO Juice?
The amount of mangosteen in XANGO Juice is part of our proprietary formula. The mangosteen fruit itself contains 39 known xanthones and the majority of those are in the pericarp of the fruit. At this point in time, we are the only company to use the entire mangosteen fruit, including the nutrient-rich rind known as the pericarp, in a beverage.
