Mangosteen juice,(1) made its debut in 2000 and generated quite a buzz, sending shockwaves across the globe – from the realm of homeopathic medicine to the dietary supplement industry. A number of companies were quick to pounce on the opportunity and before long mangosteen juice products were everywhere.
Insider Secret 1: Mangosteen Juice - Proprietary Secret Formula Exposed (2), (3)
Proprietary Blends are not inherently a negative for the consumer, though they can be confusing when comparing products. A supplement that lists a “proprietary blend” on the bottle is there for one of two reasons:
(1) to prevent the competition from knowing exactly what ratios and amounts of mangosteen are present in the formula which prevents the competition from copying their formula (referred to as a ‘knock off’).
(2) to hide the fact the formula contains very little mangosteen in an attempt to fool the consumers.
How can you tell the difference?
You can’t - without research and knowledge. Some companies simply offer an impressive list of ingredients that they hope will justify higher prices; however, unless those ingredients are in proper and abundant proportions, the juice will have little effect on those consuming it. Other companies attempt to baffle buyers with exclusive proprietary blends that conceal the actual content amounts. Industry experts refer to this tactic as “label decoration”.
Now let us ask this question...
Do you want to do business with a company that is not completely transparent when it comes to disclosing how much mangosteen is in their juice?
If you do come across a company that fully discloses the amount of mangosteen in their juice, look to see if there are any “extracts” or “concentrates” as we will explain in our next section.
Insider Secret 2: Mangosteen “Juice” - Extracts and Concentrates (4), (5), (6)
Extract: An extract is a substance made by extracting a part of a raw material, often by using a solvent such as ethanol or water.(7)
Concentrates: A concentrate is a form of substance which has had the majority of its base component removed.(8)
If you have a bottle of mangosteen juice, read the label to see if you come across the words "Juices", “Extracts” or “Concentrates”. If these are the ingredients listed then you will know that you have a product mixture that uses a solvent such as ethanol or water in their formula. In order to harness all the healthful benefits that mangosteen has to offer, you need more than just a mangosteen puree, concentrate or extract. You need the whole mangosteen fruit processed in such a way that you don’t lose the precious xanthones and fiber which are the compounds that bring about the healthy changes mangosteen is known for. After all, these benefits are the reason you are consuming mangosteen in the first place. Mangosteen juice companies add fruit juices and purified water to their product in order to add bulk and broaden the list of ingredients to justify their cost.
According to WebMD, men need about 38 grams of fiber while women need 35 grams of fiber per day.(9) Fiber is known to promote excellent heart health, weight management and energy.(10)
The best way to consume fiber is by consuming the whole mangosteen pericarp which many liquid mangosteen juice drinks lack.
Insider Secret 3: Do You Know What You Are Really Purchasing?
Natural Home Cures wants to give you the knowledge to make an informed consumer purchasing decision. Below is a comparison between two well-recognized mangosteen suppliers and Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Rich Pericarp Mangosteen capsules. We have listed the first letter of their names only. Although, with a little research you'll quickly be able to identify the companies.
(View the NHC Mangosteen product label, a new browser/window will open.)
Company X does not list its ingredients or the amount of the mangosteen they use in their product, citing: "This is a closely guarded secret as we do not want others to copy us."
This statement should be a red flag to any cautious consumer. Why would you put something into your body without knowing exactly what it is?
Through independent laboratory tests, we have determined that the reason they do not want to disclose this information is that the active ingredient of mangosteen is 7 mg/ounce, which works out to 0.025% of mangosteen in each bottle, making the rest of the bottle 99.975% fruit juice. So ask yourself, why are you paying top dollar for a product that consists of apple juice, pear juice, grape juice, pear puree, blueberry juice, raspberry juice, strawberry juice, cranberry juice, cherry juice and sodium benzoate?
As part of it's report on the financial success of company X's product, the Associated Press commissioned the Linus Pauling Institute to analyze and compare the antioxidant capacity of the company's mangosteen juice. For the lab test, The Associated Press shipped a 750-milliliter bottle of product X to Oregon State University's Linus Pauling Institute at Corvallis. The institute measured its antioxidant strength against store-bought juices that sell for a few dollars a bottle.
On a scale of molecular weight, X's antioxidants measured 14,884 "micromoles" per liter, slightly higher than cranberry juice, lower than black cherry and less than half the power of blueberry juice.
Company V also includes 12 full-spectrum vitamins, 65 essential minerals, decaffeinated green tea and whole leaf aloe vera in its bottles of mangosteen. However, the sole purpose of consuming mangosteen is for the xanthones and in mangosteen they are only found in the pericarp.
Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Rich Pericarp Mangosteen comes in 120 capsules per bottle with 515 mg of mangosteen per capsule. To equal one capsule of Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Mangosteen you would have to drink 72 ounces of Company X's juice at a cost of $105. With Company V, you would need 8 ounces of juice at a cost of $8.50.
Insider Secret 4: An insider look into the Network Marketing (MLM) Industry
It is amazing how many people fall for those Network Marketing (MLM) rags to riches stories and allow themselves to get pumped full of hopes and dreams that, with almost no effort on their part, they can enjoy the "champagne and caviar" lifestyle they only dreamed about.
Unfortunately, for 99% of all network marketers, all they will be left with are shattered dreams and empty pockets once they realize that they just made someone else rich and not themselves.(11), (12)
For those unaware of Multi-Level Marketing (MLM), let us tell you what this industry is all about.(13)
Network marketing is a marketing strategy in which the company’s sales force is compensated, not only for sales they personally generate but also for the sales of the salespeople that they recruit. This recruited sales force is referred to as the participant's downline, and can provide multiple levels of compensation.
MLM companies have been a frequent subject of criticism as well as the target of many lawsuits. Criticism has focused on their similarity to illegal pyramid schemes. Consumers are subjected to price fixing of products, high initial start-up costs, emphasis on recruitment and weekly/monthly quotas.
How exaggerated are the prices for a bottle of mangosteen juice sold through the Network Marketing (MLM) industry? Typically a 25 oz. bottle of mangosteen juice sells for $39.95/bottle. The recommended dosage is one to three ounces of juice a day so it is not surprising to see that most consumers pay over $100/month for their mangosteen juice supply.(14), (15)
Now compare that to the average 25 oz. bottle of premium juice sold at the supermarket which can range from $5-$10/bottle. Do you want to know why the supermarket juice is only $5 - $10/bottle compared to $39.95/bottle sold by the Network Marketing-(MLM)-Pyramid Company’s? Network Marketing-(MLM)-Pyramid Company’s are forced to charge this amount to offset the average 60% commission rates they pay out to all of their distributors (downline).
Think about it, the first 60% of your money or $24 of the $39.95 goes to pay 10 or 20 levels of distributors who each collect a piece of your payment. This makes the true value of the juice at $15.95 which itself is still pretty pricey.
Now would you like to know the true cost to manufacture a 25 oz. bottle of mangosteen juice?
It is approximately $3.75/bottle.
Insider Secret 5: Mangosteen - The Right Product To Buy
The right mangosteen product to buy is not mangosteen juice but rather Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Rich Pericarp Mangosteen - far superior in potency.
Natural Home Cures takes the entire mangosteen pericarp and dehydrates it by removing the water through a process that uses freezing cold and not heat. We use extreme cold as it does not destroy any of the medicinal or therapeutic properties of the mangosteen.
Think of it like this: If you have ever purchased a food dehydrator and dehydrated say a banana, the heat removes the water from the food and in the end, you still have the banana just without the water (known as banana chips). That is exactly how our mangosteen is produced with one major difference; we remove the water using cold/freezing temperatures so that all the therapeutic and medicinal properties of the mangosteen fruit are retained.(16), (17)
Eating the whole fruit will always provide you better medicinal or therapeutic health properties than drinking a diluted juice extract or concentrate.
