Mangosteen Juice: The Story of the Rind

May 14, 2008
Mangosteen Juice fakeries and forgeries abound on the Internet. It would be fitting to break it down a little bit as to what to look for when buying mangosteen juice so you don't get suckered.

First of all, mangosteens are a kind of exotic fruit that is grown in Southeast Asian countries, like Thailand. It has antioxidant properties that may help maintain intestinal health, strengthen the immune system, and neutralize free radicals. If that wasn't enough, it also helps support cartilage and joint function and a healthy seasonal respiratory system.

Yes this is one heck of a fruit, which explains why so many companies are trying to do copycat imitations of mangosteen products after the original company, XanGo, successfully brought mangosteen juice to the marketplace.

Now the prime active "ingredients" in the mangosteen fruit are xanthones. This is what makes the mangosteen so potent. Xanthones are a type of phytonutrient. And in case you're wondering what a phytonutrient is, it's a natural, bioactive compounds found in plant foods like mangosteens.

Most of the xanthones are found in the rind of the mangosteen fruit. This is why you want a mangosteen product that has the rind in it. Good luck finding anything outside of Xango's Mangosteen Juice.

There are a lot of products out there that claim to have the whole fruit in its composition. Most do not. When products state that they contain the whole fruit, they mean the part of fruit that is edible. The rind isn't included in that definition which is why many companies can get away with saying that; they are deceiving people into thinking that they have the most important part of the mangosteen, the rind, in their product, in which they don't.

The point is, if you don't have the rind in your supplement then you are not getting the best benefit from this exotic fruit; in fact, you will get mediocre results, if any results at all.

If you have a product that has rind extracts in it, you must know that a chemical process was involved and that usually means alcohol was used.

Why would you buy a natural whole food supplement that uses chemicals to extract the nutrients? It's illogical at best. It's like shaving off all your hair so you can go buy a wig.

You know that doesn't make sense, but yet people spend money on products that are manufactured that way. And the makers of these products are laughing all the way to the bank.

Look, if you're going to plunk down your money for something, wouldn't it be wise to get the product that is going to have the best benefit for you?

You are basically wasting your money on these inferior products. I've seen some of them and they're a joke, not to mention potentially dangerous.

I seen a mangosteen juice product that looked like barbeque sauce-and I'm not exaggerating. I couldn't figure out how a fruit that is mainly purplish red turn into a brownish thick-ish gravy-looking "liquid." Not only that, the label for the product looked like it was made on a computer with a cheap printer. This is scary stuff!

I would suggest you be careful as to what you consume especially if it's from a non-recognizable company.

All in all, if you want the best mangosteen juice on the market then go with the product that will give you the best bang for your buck. Don't you think you deserve it?
