Mangosteen grows in sub-tropical climates in southeast Asia. It contains x anthones , the highest concentration of anti-oxidants found in nature. Local folklore has recognized its medical benefits for thousands of years, but no one knew how to preserve the nutritional benefits and market the total fruit commercially. It took American and German ingenuity to come up with the answer. A botanical expert from Utah ran across the fruit 3 years ago in a Thailand restaurant. It tasted delicious.

After researching the benefits of the fruit, he contacted the wo rld’s most respected botanical

beverage company, Wild Flavors, Inc. ( producers of well known brands such as So Be’, Capri Sun, etc.) They are a multi billion dollar company based in Heidelberg, Germany. They could solve the

manufacturing challenge. Wild Flavors Inc. partnered with Xango LLC. of Utah to market the botanical as a health beverage.

ACNE; SCAR TISSUE; WARTS SUBJECT: Acne (Feb. 7, 2005) I am 25 years old with no health conditions or problems. I started taking the [Mangosteen juice] because I knew it was healthy and it couldn't hurt. I have been taking it since August. I have always seemed to be lucky enough to have a couple of pimples on my face. After I started taking [original Mangosteen juice] I started getting breakouts (really bad) and after a month my face still hadn't cleared up - looking back now, the breakouts fluctuated with the amount of [original Mangosteen juice] I was taking, one, two or three ounces a day. The more consistently I took, the worse it became. I started putting 2 and 2 together. I was SCARED to take it. I complained my friends about how terrible it was. I kept hearing about other testemonies and my friends' dad was having such success that I decided to started taking it again, just a little slower. I started taking 1 ounce then a week later 2 ounces a day. In January I asked my mother and my younger sister when the last time they saw a pimple on my face and neither one could remember. My sister had to laugh at herself because she is a teenager and is now getting them and has always given my a bad time. She wants a bottle now. I am still SURPRISED and EXCITED to have clear skin. Later in January I read a testimony on someone who had success with [original Mangosteen juice] and warts. I looked down at my thumb which I have had a small wart on my thumb for at least 10 years and have always been sub- concious of it. No one else knew it was there -- Guess what! it was gone. I couldn't believe it! It is such a small problem in the scope of things but I had bought everything to get rid of it and nothing had worked!

She has tried many things over the years and nothing worked for her. She started using the mangosteen as a paste and applying it to the scar and after a couple months is was almost gone.

ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER’ child’s brain fog Hi Jack, I don't have the medical evidence, however, I do have a child that is a long-term ADHD ritalin user, that is now totally into taking Xango with good results. While an adolescent, keeping him on meds has been a challenge to say the least. The good part is he doesn't like to take meds. The bad part is he needs something to assist him with focus and emotional upheavals associated with the disorder. For the past month he has been using Xango and been especially leveled out (you may understand what I mean), and has found he is maintaining attention in school. He is exhibiting less frustration in his life and is not experiencing highs and lows associated with ritalin use. My son is a big guy, 6' and 210, so he starts his day with about 2 ounces of Xango on an empty stomach. It appears that he is also taking another ounce or two later in the afternoon some days. Additional benefits for this adolescent include improved moods following quite a bout of depression and improving sleeping patterns. Huge bonus at this time in his life. BTW, we have been dealing with this disorder now for 10 years. I don't know how this will work for you, but suggest you try it--you may like the results! :) Believe, Cathie --------------------------------------------------------Brain Fog – Stephanie White who does neurofeedback in Virginia emailed this to me yesterday Hi Heather - I hope that all is well with you I hope that Ethan is doing well. I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how we (my daughter 10, son 14, and I) are responding to the [mangosteen juice]. We are all taking 6 oz. per day. On day 4 my son (who has a terrible time sustaining attention) said that he had an easier time paying attention. In class he is very focused now when he does his homework more focused then ever before. He still has terrible fatigue and moodiness, but I feel hopeful that these symptoms will decrease or disappear over time. My daughter - .......all I can say is woah!!!!!! She had such terrible fatigue and brain fog prior to taking the [mangosteen juice]. It took at least a week if not longer (I was terrible about not keeping anecdotal notes) and then all of a sudden she's alert and focused and working near her true potential. The difference in her has been dramatic. She is taking 2 oz. -3 X's per day. It seems crucial for her to get the dosage split up into these 3 times - if I'm not home and the 2nd dose was skipped, she's falling pretty fast back into fatigue and brain fog. Her eyes are alert and her energy seems NORMAL!!!!!! I'm walking on clouds!! I'm just now (after approx. 2 weeks) noticing an increase in energy – but it is not constant / consistent from day to day. But on my good days - it's very good compared to anything that I've felt in 20 years +. The first week that I starting taking it - I noticed improved attention, attention to detail, sequential thinking improved, and energy. Stephanie White (Virginia) - Tue, 28 Sep 20

Mangostán y Rinitis Alérgica, debilitantes Dolores de cabeza y repetidas infecciones por Sinusitis. De Louis A. Dr. ( Entrenado en la Escuela de medicina de la Universidad de Yale; Maestría en Salud Pública en la Universidad de Harvard y anterior miembro de la Facultad Médica de Harvard. ). “Estoy enviándole este correo par ainformarle que yo considero tener una verdadera respuesta terapéutica al usar Mangostán. Como un médico que se entrenó en la Escuela de Medicina de Harvard y como anterior miembro de la Facultad de Medicina en la Escuela Médica de Harvard, yo he sido algo escéptico de las afirmaciones de muchos suplementos nutricionales. A diferencia de la mayoría de los médicos, sin embargo, Yo siempre estaba enterado de la tremenda importancia de la nutrición como un factor de tantas de las enfermedades más comunes, y yo conseguí un grado de Maestría en Salud Pública en la Universidad de Harvard a fin de aprender más acerca de nutrición y el papel de tratamientos alternativos en mantener una salud óptima. Siempre he estado abierto a usar tratamientos naturales no tóxicos, de manera que cuando yo me puse en contacto con un colega acerca del Mangostán y el hecho de que contenía Xantonas. Estaba muy intrigado porque había estado enterado del hecho de que St. John’s Wort, un antidepresivo popular en Europa, contenia Xantonas, los que eran en parte responsables por su capacidad de elevar el humor y efectos energetizantes. Por años yo sufrí de un desorden medico conocido como Rinitis alérgica el cual ocasionaba Dolores de cabeza muy debilitantes, repetidas infecciones de los senos nasales y requería tratamiento con antibióticos. Yo había consultado con varios médicos y especialistas en alergias y me recetaban una variedad de agentes antihistamínicos ( Allegara, Zyrtec, Claritin, Nasacort, Flonase ) con solo alivio marginal de mis síntomas. Yo decidí probar el Mangostán para mis síntomas de alergia y después revisé alguna literatura científica y me sorporendió descubrir gran evidencia de que las Xantonas en la garcinia mangostana L., realmente inhibía la emisión de histamin y también reducía la síntesis de la prostaglandina E-2 la cual se sabe que media las reacciones alérgicas y pude descontinuar todos mis medicamentos antihistamínicos. Sintiendo que esto era “ demasiado bueno para ser verdad” yo entonces inicié mi propia investigación dejando de tomar mangostán por un día. Para mi asombro, al siguiente día, estaba sintiendo mis antiguos síntomas de alergia y los molestos Dolores de cabeza, congestion y estornudos , los cuales de nuevo se quitaron después de iniciar tomando el jugo de Mangostán. Es extremadamente gratificante saber que hay fuerte prueba científica para los beneficios en la salud que yo experimenté con Mangostán. La validación de este producto identificando el papel científico de los Xantones me permite refutar a muchos escépticos que argumentan contra el uso de todos los tratamientos naturales no tóxicos para enfermedades médicas y en su lugar veneran el altar de la gran farma y compran en establecimientos médicos cuando todo lo que necesitamos son medicamentos mas fuertes para eliminar todas las enfermedades del mundo, no obstante el hecho de que el Instituto de la Medicina reporta reacciones adversas a medicamentos que matan al menos 108,000 personas por año.

A través de mi carrera médica he estado desalentado a observer que en los Estados Unidos tenemos mas medicinas pero menos salud y estoy inmensamente agradecido en que existe un producto natural tal como el Mangostán el cual eleva la salud y no es tóxico”. Dr. Louis A., M.D.

ALLERGIES; ASTHMA; CHEMICAL ALLERGIES From: [email protected][mangosteen juice].com Date: Sat, 30 Oct 2004 14:50:08 -0700 Subject: Asthma Xango Mangosteen juice has been incredibly helpful to me with my asthma. Remember, asthma is an inflammatory problem, so it may take a little time. But I am off all medication, and can tell a huge difference if I go even a day without. Kristin Taylor ---------------------------------------------------------------------Date: Mon Jul 26, 2004 6:39 pm Subject: Allergies / Asthma / Pain / Acid Reflux / Arthritis / Energy From: [email protected] Date: Sat, 17 Hi,.... I have a drinking problem. I'm a Xango "[Mangosteen Juice]-aholic." I cannot go a day without my "juice"! I have a neck injury, allergies and acid reflux. I'm not taking any anti inflammatory medication, nor Allegra for allergies or Prevacid for acid reflux anymore. I will always have these conditions. I'm happy to say, I'm taking one supplement, [Mangosteen Juice]. My daughter who is 8 years old, takes one ounce a day, which controls her allergies and her proneness to asthma. Since taking [Mangosteen Juice], she has not had to take medication. My favorite remedy of [Mangosteen Juice] is for prevention. I take 3 - 5 additional ounces on a day If feel a virus coming on, it knocks the germs right out! P.S. I can't take it after 3:00 P.M. because it keeps me awake to late. I rarely experience that lull after lunch anymore either.

I have COPD myself, and I have been taking the Mangosteen juice for about 4

months now, and went to my Dr. and, to tell you the truth, she was totally amazed! My breathing is better... I had a breathing test done, and it came back better than the last one I had. I do not have to take may inhalers or breathing treatments much anymore. Xango is really helping me in that area. Terry ----------------------------------------------------------------------I am sending you this e-mail as a recently enrolled Xango distributor to inform you of what I consider to be a truly remarkable therapeutic response from using Xango. As a physician who trained at the Yale University School of Medicine and is a former member of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, I have been somewhat skeptical of the health claims of many nutritional supplements. Unlike most other physicians, however, I was always aware of the tremendous importance of nutrition as a factor in many of the most common illnesses and I pursued a Master of Public Health degree at Harvard University in order to learn more about nutrition and the role of alternative treatments in maintaining optimal health. I have always been open to using natural non-toxic treatments so when I was contacted by my sponsor about Xango and the fact that it contained xanthones I was very intrigued because I had been aware of the fact that St. John's Wort a popular antidepressant in Europe contained xanthones which were in part felt to be responsible for its mood-elevating and energizing effects. For years I suffered from a medical disorder known as allergic rhinitis which resulted in debilitating headaches, repeat sinus infections and required treatment with antibiotics. I had consulted with several ENT and Allergy specialists and was prescribed a variety of antihistaminic agents (Allegra, Zyrtec, Claritin, Nasacort, Flonase) with only marginal relief of my symptoms. I decided to try Xango for my allergy symptoms after I reviewed some scientific literature and was surprised to discover robust evidence that the xanthones in garcinia mangostana L. actually inhibited histamine release and also reduced prostaglandin E-2 synthesis which is known to mediate allergic reactions in the human body. To my utter amazement, I can bear witness to the fact that within 2 days of ingesting only one ounce of Xango twice a day I had almost complete resolution of my allergic symptoms and was able to discontinue all of my antihistaminic medications. Feeling that this was "too good to be true" I then initiated my own washout protocol by stopping the Xango for one day. To my astonishment, the following day I was re-introduced to my former allergy symptoms of pounding headaches, congestion, and sneezing, which again resolved after restarting the Xango. It is extremely gratifying to know that there is strong scientific proof for the health benefits I experienced with Xango. The validation of this product by identifying the scientific role of xanthones allows me to refute the many skeptics who are biased against the use of all natural non-toxic treatments for medical illnesses and would rather worship at the altar of Big Pharma and buy into the medical establishment's view that all we need are stronger medications to vanquish all of the world's diseases, notwithstanding the fact that the Institute of Medicine reports that adverse reactions to medications kill at least 108,000 people a year. Throughout my medical career I have been disheartened to observe that in the U.S. we have more medicines but less health and I am immensely grateful that there exists a natural product such as Xango which is health enhancing and non-toxic. LOUIS A., MD, MPH ----------------------------------------------------------------Diabetes / Allergies / Energy Levels / Sleep Patterns

For the past thirty years I have been a pastor, evangelist and chaplain. I have a Masters Degree and PhD in Psychology from the University of Arizona, and a PhD in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Today my main focus is in counseling and I remain pretty busy in that. Last Saturday, January 8th,2005, I met Ed Johnson at a men's fellowship breakfast at our church. Ed and I spoke about what we were doing in life; I told him I am a Pastoral Care Counselor, and that I also sell Pre-Paid Legal. I remarked about how the seasonal high cedar pollen in San Antonio is seriously affecting my allergies. He told me about the many all natural health qualities of mangosteen and I decided to try it that day. I obtained a bottle from Ed ... WOW!! Was I quickly blessed by the quick results!! I then learned that our pastor and his family are drinking mangosteen juice, with good results. The very first thing I noticed is that I was not feeling any allergic effects of Mountain Cedar, which for many years has bothered me in the late winter. Next, I noted my sleeping pattern had greatly improved. I seemed to sleep better, and in 4 days, I had lost four pounds. I have also noticed that my energy level is much higher, and that I feel about ten years younger...not bad for a 64 year old! But next came the biggest surprise of all. I had not even mentioned my diabetes to Ed when we met. Ed asked me why I had asked him about diabetes, and I then told him of my serious case of diabetes. I met with my doctor on Thursday; he just called to tell me of the very positive results of the semi-annual tests performed the day before. I explained to Ed that for the past 15 years I have suffered from diabetes and that at one time I took insulin four times daily. The doctor said, "Paul, you are healed from diabetes." I had never heard anything like that!! I was actually rather shocked, as doctors usually say that diabetes will go "into remission," but never say "healed." I cannot say with medical certainty that the mangosteen juice is what brought about this wonderful change in my life, but I can say that drinking mangosteen juice is the only change I have made in my diet and in my life. Inasmuch as I have also suffered several heart attacks and have suffered from congestive heart failure, as well as asthma, and high blood pressure, I am always looking for ways to improve my health and my life. The mangosteen juice certainly seems to have done something wonderful for me. Paul E. Weimeschkirch, PhD San Antonio, Texas; systemsrule [email protected]com; Feb. 20, 2005 SUBJECT: Chemical Allergies March 15, 2005 In April of 1995 I had put on some insect repellent. Within two minutes I was so sick that I could hardly stand, coughing so hard I all most blacked out. I realized that it was the repellent and showered. I was sick for a few days then got better. Then I began noticing that every time I was around people or tried to clean I would get sick the same way. Our family life began to change. We could no longer wear perfume or after shave, scented deodorant, hair spray my husband couldn't even use shaving cream and the list goes on.. Everything we would buy had to be scent free or I would become sick. This allergic reaction controlled where I could go and what people could wear or not wear in my house, I called my safe zone.I sought help from my physician, Allergy doctor, health food store and friends. Nothing could be done because my allergies were to chemicals.

I heard about the Mangosteen juice on 1-1-2005 and began to do research. I hadn't read any thing about my kind of allergies but since I can't take drugs to lower my cholesterol I decided to give it a try. I started taking the Mangosteen juice on 1- 22- 2005 one oz in the morning and one in the afternoon. By the 5th day I noticed that I could go to the store and no scents bothered me. The following Sunday I went to church and to my surprise I didn't cough one time, in fact I went around to all my friends that wear strong perfumes and sniffed their neck. Praises go to God for creating this miracle fruit that has set me free from a 9 year bondage. Frances WallBrazoria, Texas joyismine2002 [email protected]

ALZHEIMER’S & MEMORY LOSS (At end of these testimonials is a short summary of Time Magazine’s comment about the possible relationship between inflammation and Alzheimer’s. Xango mangosteen juice is a powerful anti-inflammatory.)

Unreal Results with Mom in nursing home w/Memory Loss Well, the [Mangosteen juice] experience took a new turn today. As you are aware my 92 year old mother is in a home in Turlock and has given us lots to worry about. She thinks that I am her young child and is still going to school. Also she has contended that my father has left her for another woman. Plus several other thing that she has done which results in her thinking that she is living in the past. In order to try and help her ease back into the present or at least not get any worse we had made arrangements with the nurses to give her [Mangosteen juice] during the day to try and help her to combat further mental problems. Well, the results we saw today have gone beyond our greatest hopes. Today she told us that she had been , in her mind, living in a fantasy world, thinking of me as her young child, and Dad cheating on her. She said that she thought she had a stove, freezer, and refrig. in her room, but she now knows these thing not to be true. She acts like she just came out of a bad dream. Both Arlette and I are sure that the [Mangosteen juice] has made this happen. I for one still have a hard time thinking that a fruit drink can help that much but it sure has. For the first time in several months she can hold a logical conversation, and she acts like a new person. She gets 3 oz twice a day. No other changes that we are aware of in her treatment. She seems to think more clearly but that is major for us. Russ Joe - Sun, 5 Sep 2004 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Sharon heard an interesting testimonial today. Doctor George Herald told her about a fellow in his downline in Texas whose wife has Alzheimer's. She resides in an assisted living facility and can no longer speak or respond to conversation. Her husband took some XanGo into her room and gave her one teaspoonful a day for four days...On the fourth day, she began to speak! (1-30-04) -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hello Sharon and Sherman, I'm so excited that I can hardly tell you what happened today. I first tasted XanGo on Sept 4th.

We had been going through quite a crisis with my 81 year old Mother. She was told that previous week that she failed some competency tests with the doctor and was told she could no longer drive and would be tested for medication to stop her dementia. This was traumatic to say the least. After reading the literature I decided XanGo might be beneficial for my Moms memory. Three days later my Mom called with a whole new attitude about life. She decided on her own that it might be time to move to a retirement community as she did not want us to worry about her. That was great! But that is not the best part. Today my brother and I took her for her follow-up visit with the doctor and asked to retest her. SHE PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS! The doctor was amazed. She refused to put my mother on any medication and signed a note to the DMV stating that she could continue driving. The joy we shared is not able to be expressed in words. She has her energy, a sound mind, and her attitude is renewed on life. My Mom told the doctor about XanGo. She was very supportive and told her to keep on taking it. By the way, the retirement community idea is put on hold. Thank you, Norma Eckblad (9-25-03) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------From Wayne Houghtjon; Jan. 24, 2005 about Alzheimer's My mother is 87 and has had alzheimer's for more than ten years. Aricept was helpful for about a year and a half. The dr. had to increase her dosage several times then switched her to Exelon twice a day and Paxil once a day for it. It basically kept her from geting worse. Two months after she began taking mangosteen juice her doctor was able to discontine the Paxil… have seen a great deal of improvement in her! Wayne H.

I am General Manager of an adult care home in Arizona. A few months ago, one of our residents' daughters brought a bottle of mangosteen juice to our adult care home to try on her mother who has Alzheimer's disease. This resident is 86 years old. The results were amazing. Prior to taking mangosteen juice, she was sleeping most of the day and it was very difficult to carry on a conversation with her. Now, after taking mangosteen juice for approximately three months, she is alert during the day, vibrant and easy to communicate with. Since her results were so exciting, we began giving mangosteen juice to four of our other residents with outstanding results. Resident 1 is a 72 year old Alzheimer's patient who prior to taking mangosteen juice was sleeping all day, would not communicate and could not feed herself. Now after two months on mangosteen juice, she does not sleep all day, she is alert, communicates with others and feeds herself. Resident 2 is an 86 year old Alzheimer's patient, is blind, has very stiff muscles, she has not talked or opened her eyes for several years and is bed bound. After being on mangosteen juice for approximately two months, she now talks at times, moves her arms and legs occasionally and communicates without screaming. She now opens her eyes and is aware of her surroundings. Resident 3 is a 76 year old who has Parkinson's disease. Prior to taking mangosteen juice she was very quiet, stayed in her room all day. Now after two months on mangosteen juice, she comes out of her room for meals, is a lot stronger, her appetite has increased, and she now walks with minimal assistance. Resident 4 is a 94 year old who is very frail, has transfusions every three months, has a poor appetite and is anemic. Now, after being on mangosteen juice for almost two months, she is eating well, much stronger and very happy.

After seeing the wonderful results that the residents were experiencing, I started taking mangosteen juice myself. I was suffering from migraine headaches. I have now gone several months with no migraine headaches. When I begin to feel the symptoms of a migraine, I double up on the mangosteen juice dosage and do not have migraines. My energy level has also increased since being on mangosteen juice. I am also giving mangosteen juice to my nine year old son who suffers from asthma and sinus infections year round. After taking mangosteen juice his asthma medications have been decreased. When a sinus infection flares up, I double the dosage of mangosteen juice and his sinus infection is gone in two to three days. Also, my four year old niece had no appetite, would vomit at the sight of food, was very skinny and pale. She has been on mangosteen juice for several months. She is now eating very well, has gained weight, has rosy cheeks and less sinus infections. Mangosteen juice has truly been a miracle in a short period of time for my family and for the residents at the facility I manage. Sincerely, Barbara Gjnbalaj, General Manager, Adult Care Home ------------------------------------------------------------------------Subject: Future Hope for Alzheimer's My Father at the young age of 64 started having problems at work and had to retire early. He was then diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Alzheimer's. He is now in a home because my mother couldn't handle him anymore. He worked as a very successful Autobodyman and may have ingested a lot of chemicals. A friend of mine gave me a bottle of [mangosteen juice] and I had read that it may help with Alzheimer's. We thought we would have nothing to lose as he is now in a very vegetative state. He didn't know anyone, He couldn't feed himself and he couldn't even talk anymore. We got him on 1 oz of [mangosteen juice] per day and on the 5th day he called my son by his name. We were all shocked! He continued taking 1 oz per day and he has now been feeding himself consistently for 25 days! He is more alert and happy. He even looks and smiles at me when I visit him. He is now even communicating with us a little. We are now increasing his dosage to 2 oz per day with his doctors' blessing and we are all excited to see what happens This product has created much excitement for our family! I wish we would have had this product 5 years ago. I want people to understand that my father is pretty far gone but has had somewhat amazing results due to taking this product. I truly believe this product offers new hope to other people. I would like to say a special thanks to Grace D. for sharing this product with our family. Many thanks to XanGo as well.

She is 88 years young now. She was diagnosed ten years ago. We had

tried several different meds for this and periodically had had to increase the dosage due to an increase in her agressiveness. The last one we tried was Exelon ( she was taking 2 a day before starting the mangosteen juice). The Exelon worked better than the others for her. After she was on an ounce of mangosteen juice three timea a day before each meal for three of months, we were able to decrease it to just one Exelon a day. She has also been able to stop taking Paxil for the depression since being on mangosteen juice. She is NOT AGRESSIVE any longer, sleeps much better , eats better, and her memory is improving! Please feel free to contact me if you would lilke to know more about her progress. Nina in Georgia -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------My mother, who is 77, has been suffering from dementia for the past year and a half. She was diagnosed with a form of paranoid schizophrenia. She was put on anti-psychotic meds and as the dosage increased, became more and more foggy headed and almost completely disconnected from life. She was unable to carry on a phone conversation as she just couldn't maintain a complete thought. My sister and I were afraid she would have to be put into a care home. I sent her a case of mangosteen juice last August in the hopes that it would help with her many physical health issues, but never thought it would improve her mental health. After she had been on the juice for about 3 weeks, I noticed in our telephone conversations that she was becoming more lucid. Since my brother was going to visit her for a week, I just figured it was the human interaction that was doing it and worried that she would regress when he left. However, that didn't happen. She continued to improve. It was like coming out of a fog. My aunt told her she was like her old self again (which was a very independent woman). She has stayed on the mangosteen juice and was able to decrease her dosage of anti-psychotic meds. She stopped having her episodes of fantasy and although she still can't separate what was real from what was imagined, she isn't consumed with it anymore. When she visited her primary care doctor in December, he was impressed with her general improvement and told her to 'keep doing whatever she was doing'. We are no longer feeling the need to move her as she is now able to care for herself. We visited her in January and were impressed with her improvement too. Kathy Erickson; [email protected]; Feb. 12, 2005 SOURCE: Time Magazine; Feb. 23, 2004. The Secret Killer: INFLAMMATION (the fire within) "Suddenly, inflammation has become one of the hottest areas of medical research. Hardly a week goes by without the publication of yet another study uncovering a new way that chronic inflammation does harm to the body. . . .It chews up nerve cells in the brains of Alzheimer's victims. "Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer's and colon cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent all three. "When doctors treating Alzheimer's patients took a closer look at who seemed to be succumbing to the disease, they uncovered a tantalizing clue: those who were already taking anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis or heart disease tended to develop the disorder LATER than those who weren't. Perhaps the immune system mistakenly saw the characteristic plaques and tangles that build up in the brains of Alzheimer's patients as damaged tissue that needed to be cleared out. If so, the ensuing inflammatory reaction was doing more harm than good. Blocking it with anti-inflammatories might limit, or at least delay, any damage to cognitive functions." __________________________________________________________________________________

ANXIETY Mangosteen Juice XANGO & Obsessive Compulsive Disorder I was diagnosed five years ago with obsessive disorder (anxiety, panic) etc. The doctor wanted to put me on 50 mg of Paxil, I'm not into taking medication and I stumbled upon Mangosteen. Now, I don't have panic attacks, my mind is clear, I don't have obtrusive, obsessive thoughts, I don't have negative thought patterns, I wish I could say it was all in my head, but it wasn't, it's true that Mangosteen works and I would recommend it for anyone in this situation. Regards, Martin Ramirez - 13 Aug 2004 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------From: [email protected] Date: Wed Feb 25, 2004 7:01 am Subject: Re: [xangopros] ANXIETY and Depression Mark, Xango works a couple different ways. Drugs like Celexa, prozac, paxil are what are called selective seratonin re-uptake inhibitors or SSRI. Seratonin is the "feel good" hormone. When it is release into the brain, there is a receptor that is there to take it back up. These delay this from happening so the seratonin has more time in the brain. There is a study on www.pubmed.com on the effects of mangosteen about how it was shown effective to block seratonin receptors. It is titled "Histaminergic and seratonergic receptor blocking substances from the medicinal plant Garcinia mangostana". The other effects is the xanthones. I don't know what effect this has, but this is the basis of St. Johns wart. I have been on Celexa at 40 mg for years. I have slowly cut my doses down for over the past 6 weeks. I am down to 10 mg now and hope to be completely off in another week. I was using this more for anxiety and stress. I still have stress, but I have 7 kids, trying to bring one child home from Haiti, homeschool, started a new and very exciting business and we are trying to sale our house! I feel I am coping just as well as when I was on 40 mg. Lisa --------------------------------------About 5 years or more ago, I was told to take Novasc for high blood pressure.

I could not keep my eyes closed for long while saying prayers or even giving blessings.

Nina Harrison [email protected] Tuesday, December 28, 2004 5:42 PM Subject: Osteoarthritis, Crohns Disease

I joined the XanGo™ family in September 2004. I was diagnosed with Crohns’ Disease and osteoarthritis eight years ago. Since I have been drinking [Mangosteen Juice] I no longer have to take medication for either. I am pain free and sleep like a log. I have so much more mobility and energy than I have had in the past ten years! I had been lactose intolerant since 1992. Products with lactose in them no longer bother me. My digestive problems are tremendously improved! All my friends have noticed the miraculous improvement in my healthand have asked me 'What has happened? I tell them MANGOSTEEN JUICE came into my life! Artie in Georgia ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------A good friend of mine (age 70) has had severe athritus in his kness for years; other preparations, (motrin, Herbalife, ect.) haven't helped. I gave him a bottle of Xango mangosteen juice, and he reports "within three days, the pain and stiffness were just GONE! My wife's Chiropractor was a major skeptic until he gave a bottle to one of his clients who suffers from depression. Nothing has ever really helped. She took 2 oz.a day of Xango and in four days, her depresssion lifted. She ran out, and came to him for another bottle, and HE was out; her symptoms returned while awaiting a new shipment, then immediately subsided when she was back on the product. David Hoye, Arkansas -------------------------------------------------------------------------------My husband was diagnosed with RArthritis a month ago, and the rhumatologist that we went to asked for a follow up today. He had prescribed Methotrexate and a small dosage of steroids to get him started to help alleviate the pain until the first one kicked in. As soon as we walked out of the office, he drank 4oz of Xango, and has been on it ever since. We never did take the prescriptions. Today, when we told the doctor about not being on the meds, and after he examined my husband and verified that the swelling and inflamation were indeed diminished, he asked what we were doing. My husband told him about Xango,and the doctor told us he had other patients that were also getting some great results from it too...

gloria in Utah ------------------------------------------------------------------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 years. After one week on Xango (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.

Loene A. ----------------------------------------------------------------I've been plagued for over 30 years with: Anklyosing Spondilitis, Fibromyalgia / Myofacial Pain Syndrome, Hashimoto's Disease , Shjogrens Syndrome, I.B.S. Just to name a few...... I'm so very Thankful that my sister Valenda Bartosh introduced me to the MANGOSTEEN FRUIT. The inflamation throughout my body has calmed down. The meds.I was on I've been able to cut from 7 perscriptions to 3. The point is to keep the inflammation down. Your immune system up. If you have any ??? would love to hear from you. Happy to be alive again.... Shan Glover I must add this : After the first 24 hrs. consuming 2 ~ 4oz. of Xango MANGOSTEEN JUICE That was Feb. 4,2004 My husband and I had finished our dinner did our Bible Readings discussed the days accomplishments. We went in to watch the news ~ an hour latter while lying down watching the news together I reached over and touched my husbands arm and said " Jim!!! I have no pain..!!!"; I again repeated myself... Louder though... I rolled off the bed stood up and said AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!! I have no pain..........I walked to the foot of our bed and started to cry....just a little because of the joy...FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SO VERY MANY YEARS...I HAD NO PAIN Please keep in mind, No pain between doses of pain killers.....One of which WAS ~ Methadone. I was perscribed 6 methodone a day. Marty -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------I experienced an amazing relief of bursitis pain after my fourth day of this regimen - - pain I had experience for three years without relief. It felt " as sweet as honey" in my shoulders for four days straight, and then the pain returned and stayed as usual for a week. The good news is that now that I'm starting my fourth week on XanGo, I'm slowly feeling less and less pain, not only in my shoulders but in a troublesome right hip (anti-inflammatory effects of mangosteen). I think my body's initial totally pain free reaction to XanGo was a "sign" of the healings to come more slowly, and perhaps permanently. When you take XanGo, be sure to "saturate" your body when you start taking it (or at any point if you haven't done it already) by taking dosage of 4 to 6 ounces per day for about a five day period. Then you can drop back down to 3 ounces per day. There is a concept called "therapeutic dosage" in play here. Many times when treating with natural foods (or for some medicines for that fact), one has to push the initial dosage considerably higher than usual to have the body begin it's response to what's being presented to it. An analogy that may apply here would be the greater effort it takes to get a freight train moving as it overcomes inertia. Once it's going, it takes far l ess energy for the sustained effect. Paul ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jim,

I believe that Xango is truly that miracle gift from God. And I think my husband and I are out to prove it. We are feeling better than ever after almost 2 weeks of juice. Dave has had to cut his diabetes med by 2/3 and the blood sugar is staying stable. We won't know about his leukemia until we get another lab report but his energy level tells me he is better. I haven't had pain or anti-inflammatory meds since I started the Xango and I know my Rheumatoid Arthritis is better. Thanks for staying in touch.

From: "Mashubi Rochell" Date: Tue, 13 Apr 2004; Subject: Mashubi's product testimonial - arthritis For the last 15 years I have suffered with arthristis pain in my hands, elbows and knees. It has gotten progressively worse as I get older, and always got worse in the springtime. I had tried everything... nutrition, herbs, vitamins, medicine, acupuncture, and nothing seemed to help. I pretty much had given up on finding any solution! A friend of mine told me about Mangosteen juice and initially I didn't notice any changes... until my third bottle when I discovered that lo and behold, my arthritis pain had all but disappeared!! At first I thought it was the placebo effect, so I stopped drinking the juice for a few days, and the pain went back up... so I resumed taking Mangosteen and I am now virtually pain free! Mashubi ----------------------------------------------------------My husband had rotator cuff surgery on the 2nd of June. He has been taking Xango since Feb. for his RA, and after the surgery, the surgeon commented that based on the damage he found, he was amazed there was minimal inflamation, and my husband didn't have the pain that he expected. I gave my husband 6 oz. of Xango once he was out of recovery, and once we were home, I gave him another megadose. He had his 10 day followup last Friday, and the doctor was amazed again because the entry wounds were completely healed, and my husband's range of motion was much better than he expected. His diagnosis of physical therapy, while normally would be 3-4 months, was changed to 5 weeks!! I am now using my husband as my own personal "poster boy" for testimonials. HA!! It's helped his RA, and now it has helped tremendously for his surgery. gloria in Utah -----------------------------------------------------------I was taking Celebrex and since I'm on mangosteen juice, I no longer take Tylenol or Celebrex. I have a 2 month supply of Celebrex that is sitting in my old prescription bottle unused. Just before I started on "THE JUICE" I got a 3-month refill on my Celebrex prescription -- if only I had known that in less than a month I'd no longer be taking it, I could have saved myself $200. (It was $300 for the 3 month Rx refill, but I figure that I used $100 worth of it -- but according to the article below -- to damage my body.) I thank God for Xango mangosteen juice!

AUTISM Sent: Monday, October 11, 2004 11:50 AM Subject: Re: Xango [mangosteen juice] and autism At two years of age, our son Camron was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Since then he has been in early intervention and preschool and is now in kindergarten where he is integrated into a normal classroom of his peers. It was always a challenge for Camron to not only communicate but also interact with other children and engage his family. He had made some progress with being in early intervention and preschool but he was still not able to take direction, play with others, sit in a group and whenever he wanted something he would take your hand and pull you to it because he was unable to talk. He would become so frustrated to the point that he would hit himself and cry. We started with [mangosteen juice] for my husband who had acid reflux and myself for energy but we also started giving it to our kids to try. We noticed a difference a couple of days later when my husband was playing race cars with the kids and my husband had asked my oldest son, Kyle and myself where the yellow car was. Kyle and I did not have any clue where it could have gone but Camron found it and gave it to my husband. We were so excited because he would be always off doing something by himself or playing next to the kids but not with them so we always thought that he was in his own world and not able to understand enough to take direction but this was an indication that he knew exactly what was going on. Also, Camron's senses seem to be hightened, so too much noise would bother him or putting shoes on or even a hat would be a challenge. Camron is now not bothered by this anymore. Camron now is adding more and more words to his vocabulary and is able to take direction more. He even looks forward to learning more words because he will give you eye contact and put his hand on your throat and say "hear you talk." I used to worry all the time that Camron would wander off when we were outside or get into danger, like dart off into the street because he didn't understand certain dangers but now I notice he will take direction from us alot better and I can tell him to "stop" or "hot" and he would understand. Xango has helped his sleeping habits also and he is doing well in a full day kindergarten program. In a recent IEP meeting we were amazed at how much progress Camron has made. He is able to sit during a task and is willing to play with the other kids. We are so grateful to Xango [mangosteen juice] and the way that it has facilitated in Camron's progress. In the past we have tried so many supplements in order to help Camron function better but he would refuse to take it because of the taste or texture of the vitamins but we don't have to fight him to take Xango. In fact all of our kids ask for it several times a day and it is getting harder to keep a supply in our house. We know Xango will continue to help our family especially Camron. It has helped him better communicate and focus on the different activities in school. In the past the teachers would not be able to get him to sit still and participate in activities. He is able to transition better from one activity to the next and he has started to interact more with the kids. One time Camron was crying and my husband asked him what was wrong and Camron said "you tell me." This is just one of many surprises we have encountered while Camron has been taking Xango. We would be happy to share many more testimonials of Camron's progress because [mangosteen juice] has helped us in so many ways.

Chester and Christine Green (413)737-0131 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hi Bradys, Our little boy (3 at the time) was diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) in December '03 and when we got started in this business in January this year, started taking approx. 30mls (1oz) of our Xango mangosteen product at breakfast. We noticed an improvement in his speech during the first few days and our doctor was so impressed with his improvement after two months, he suggested we increase the dosage to 30mls x 3 times a day. To date he has improved incredibly in all areas ... speech, digestion, eye contact, motor skills, general understanding, increased energy levels, playing with other children ... during this time he started calling out for us by name and a few weeks ago even answered the telephone when it rang!! Our excitement with these improvements will make perfect sense to all the parents out there that have Autistic children :). Autism has a huge range of conditions and issues so results will vary just as widely I'm sure. Starting March/April this year, our boy also has been attending a special needs pre-school, weekly speech therapy sessions, occupational therapy sessions every two weeks and, more recently, started on a low gluten/low casein, low salicylate/low amine diet. Due to his older brother's condition, our new son (10 months now) has an increased chance of developing ASD. Our Doctor, an Autism specialist, has suggested a number of preventative measures for us with the inclusion of our Xango mangosteen product in his daily diet high on the list. We are thrilled with the improvement that taking our mangosteen product has had with our little boy and share our mangosteen product with every parent we can. ~Cathy & Jason Haks, Australia 866.663.9776 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Date: Tue Jul 6, 2004 5:35 am Subject: Autism / ASD - MORE FROM THE HAKS There are so many reasons we've found that the mangosteen juice can help our ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) son ... one of the main ones is the normalising effect it has on his intestinal flora - ie. helping the "good" bacteria and depleting the "bad" ones in the gut. We should share a word of caution - As the "bad" bacteria get knocked out, they can give off some nasty toxins which can have a nasty short-term affect. This is called the "die-off" effect and generally occurs/starts somewhere between say 3 and 10. On 1 ounce (30ml) a day, it shouldn't be a problem but if someone reports that the child's behaviour and how they look is improving and then suddenly deteriorates sometime after day 3 (eg develop (more) hyperactivity / dark circles under the eyes), then it may be because of this "die-off" effect. It's our understanding that this is a sign you're on the right track, but just cut back the dose or spread it out over multiple doses during the day during this period. Our little boy came through this "die-off" with flying colors. Please be sure to consult your 'good' doctor when introducing anything new to your child's treatment. ~Cathy & Jason Haks 866.663.9776 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Please note the highlighted section below that talks about inflammation and autism. Maybe this explains in part why some autistic children have shown improvement with Xango since it's a strong natural antiinflammatory. Jim Kosglow (11/15/04)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------SANCHEZ: Welcome back to AMERICAN MORNING. I'm Rick Sanchez. Autism affects more than 400,000 children in America. We all know so many parents who suddenly have to deal with this situation. It almost seems like more and more seeming all the time. Well, what's new? What do we know about this. DR. SANJAY GUPTA, CNN MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT: Yes, you know, a couple things, Rick. First of all, good morning. There have been some concern that the numbers of autistic cases have actually been increasing, a lot of researchers paying attention now, trying to figure out not only why, but what the causes is as well. Researchers at John Hopkins University specifically tried to measure what they call neuroinflammatory cells. These are cells that are present in the brain and the fluid surrounding the brain, and trying to figure out, are they any different than those with autism. You can see there in fact, they found out that the neuroinflammatory cells overactive in autistic people. Interesting, these are the same inflammatory cells that produce brain function as a neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinsons or Alzheimer's disease. The important thing about this, Rick, and what sorts of exciting about this, is that they may be one step closer to figuring out a cause for an autism. That has really been something scientists have struggled with for some time. Also being able to diagnose autism has been difficult as well. __________________________________________________________________________________

I have noticed a tremendous difference in my workouts since taking Xango. Much more endurance, shorter recovery time, I can breath deeper, my explosions at the top of my rep are incredible, and the resting time between sets is 1/2 of what it was before. I am twice as excited today to go and do my lifts, than I was a month ago. I work out three times a week now, but I am sure that if I were back into competition, which is one reason for my diligence in building this business, I would not hesitate to tell your friend that the mangosteen will be just one of the edges he'll have on his side. When your going from one event to another such as the iron man competition, he can not afford not to!! For athletes, this product is going to increase performance to new levels. My cardiovascular workout is incredible, I have cut at least 4 minutes off my the time in my 2 mile walks, it seems that my legs and breath increase with each session. Physique wise, I can tell a difference in my definition, more defined and the pump seems to last longer. Of course, I am sure there are more qualified folks to answer your question. If your friend does use the product, we would all be very interested in watching his performance.

BONE DENSITY Date: Tue Jan 11, 2005 4:22 pm

Cholesterol / HBP / GERD / Degenerative Disc Disease / Arthritis / Rheumatoid Arthritis / Peripheral Neuropathy / Bone Density This is from my mother. I am so blessed that this juice has changed her

health! I am 71 years of age and have many health issues - high cholesterol, high blood pressure, GERD (acid reflux), degenerative disc disease, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, pacemaker (AV heart block) and peripheral neuropathy. I am not a diabetic. At my last physical in August my doctor ordered an additional cholesterol medication. I did have it filled but have not started taking it. My desire for months has been to delete the Lipitor, not add another one! My 34 year old daughter, Kris, was getting pretty excited about a Mangosteen juice she had been taking for a few weeks. She literally bounces in and out of our house and has energy I long for. Her concern for my health caused my husband and me to attend a very informative [mangosteen juice] meeting. I started with a bottle the next day drinking 2oz. 3 times a day. The third day I felt bad, achy and tired. I remembered what I had heard at the meeting and had read. I realized my body was getting rid of toxins, so I continued with the juice. Symptoms were gone the next day. The next several days I noticed some great changes - peaceful rested sleep, nighttime post nasal drainage stopped relieving the need for continuous swallowing, and renewed energy. When I vacuumed my entire house, I did not have a bad back ache! I stopped taking Tylenol PM totally. I stopped taking Colace 2xs/day totally. I had surgery on hammer toes (each foot) involving bones, pins and sutures in mid–September. I healed beautifully with no swelling or bruising and no pain. My doctor was amazed and very pleased. After walking on my heels for two weeks, I had no back pain. My chiropractor is amazed at how well I am doing and is now looking at [mangosteen juice] too. I am now drinking one ounce three times per day and anticipating more good results. THANKS, KRIS! 12/5/04 Update: In November, my mom had multiple tests run at Mayo Clinic. Her blood pressure has come down into normal range. Her cholesterol has dropped from 217 to 191, including a drop of 90 points in her triglycerides.

Her bone density has improved since her previous test in 2002. Her doctor's report reads: "Since your previous analysis dated August 28, 2002, you actually have an increase in your bone density of 7.6% in the spine and of 2.6% in the hip. This is very good news, as at your age we typically mainly see stability or decrease in the bones and rarely see actual increases in the bone density… At this time, I would not start the liquid Fosamax therapy as it does seem like your bones have improved…we do not need to add any more medications at this time." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------From: "Nina Harrison" Date: Wed, 28 Jul 2004 18:15:26 -0700 (PDT) Subject: Re: [xango] Coumadin...high blood pressure

BREAST CANCER, CHEMO AND RADIATION From: "eveh" [email protected] Date: Fri, 22 Oct 2004 18:27:03 -0700 Subject: Re: Xango mangosteen during chemo? I was in my second round of chemo for breast cancer when I first started drinking mangosteen juice. I only drank the minimum dose of 2 oz a day because I asked my oncologist about taking it during chemo. He said anti-oxidants should not be taken in large doses because it could make the chemo ineffective, but he also said I could get my anti-oxidants naturally by just eating the right foods. That is why I only drank 2 oz a day until I finished chemo. Then, I started drinking 6 oz a day and I really recovered fast from the chemo. Also, I never got a cold or flu during chemo and am still in great health now 4 months post chemo and radiation. I smile all the time now, and I call it my "happy juice!"

She had a carcinogen level of 800 in her blood at that time. She has been under radiation therapy since that time.

Her carcinogen level has fluctuated between 125-80 during this time frame. Never showing concrete signs of remission. 20 days ago the contractor introduced the Xango mangosteen juice to her. She begin an increased doseage regiman that included 3 oz/3 times per day. After the first ten days she saw her physician. During this 10 day period she had only one radiation therapy. Her carcinogen level in her blood was 110. The next ten days there were no radiation therapies , only mangosteen juice in the mentioned doseage regime.

BURSITIS Date: Tue Jun 1, 2004 10:47 am Subject: Gout / Bursitis / Virus / Cold Sore / Stomach Problems When I started taking Xango mangosteen juice, I had been bothered by a really stubborn case of gout. The doctor prescribed all different types of medication and it seemed that nothing was working. After taking Xango for 3 weeks the inflammation in my big toe joint started to subside and I finally felt some relief. I have been taking [mangosteen juice] faithfully and the gout has not returned. I also had a painful case of bursitis in my left shoulder...the inflammation has decreased considerably. Linda ---------------------------------------------Date: Wed Feb 25, 2004 1:24 am Subject: RE: [xangopros] Bursitis, Depression I experienced an amazing relief of bursitis pain after my fourth day - - - pain I had experience for three years without relief. It felt "as sweet as honey" in my shoulders for four days straight, and then the pain returned and stayed as usual for a week. I thought; "Ah foohey!" The good news is that now that I'm starting my fourth week on Xango, I'm slowly feeling less and less pain, not only in my shoulders but in a troublesome right hip (anti-inflammatory effects of mangosteen). I think my body's initial totally pain free reaction to Xango was a "sign" of the healings to come more slowly, and perhaps permanently.

CANCER AND DR. TEMPLEMAN (MD) INPUT Here's a quote from Mangosteen, the X-Factor by Dr. F. Templeman, MD, about the mangosteen's (Xango's) Antitumor Properties, page 37: "The anticancer activity of phytoceuticals (plant-derived flavonoids) has been well documented. Catechins, tannin derivatives, found in many plants and in high amounts in mangosteen, have been shown to protect from cancer in at least three different ways: 1. Catechins prevent the formation of carcinogenic compounds by blocking cocarcinogens. 2. Catechins turn up the body's natural detoxofication defenses. 3. Catechins directly suppress cancer promotion or growth. "In Novermber 2002, scientists at the National Research Institute of Chinese Medicine in Taiwan tested the mangosteen xanthone Garcinone E against human cancer cell lines for primary liver cancer (hepatoma), stomach cancer and lung cancer. The results were astounding.

"The xanthone was also compared to several other anticancer chemo-therapeutic drugs already in use. Garcinone E was capable of killing all cancer cell lines but one. In fact, the xanthone was more efficient than cisplatin, methotrexate, vincristine, mitoxantrone and 5 FU." - footnote 37 in Templeman's book. "Also in the fall of 2002 a study was conducted in Japan investigating the effects of xanthones isolated from the manogsteen pericarp against human leukemia cell lines. The study showed that, 'the pericarp oif the mangosteen contains a variety of xanthones which exhibit antiproliferative activity against human leukemia.' Templeman concludes, "As with the protection against microbes, a small daily dose of phytoceuticals, capable of directly suppressing cancer or stimulating our immune system makes good sense."

CANCER Mangosteen juice- Ovarian tumor and Eczema December 23, 2003, I had a large ovarian tumor removed. Because of the size and the way the tumor looked additional blood tests were done. One of the test they ran was to check my CA 125 levels. (Woman with high levels of CA 125, a tumor maker that may indicate the presence of ovarian cancer cells, have a higher than average risk of developing ovarian cancer) In Dec. my CA 125 level was at 93, the normal high is 35. Anything 35 and over they start looking and treating for possible ovarian cancer. April 7, 2004 , I took the Mangosteen Juice twice a day. The amounts varied. On June 23, 2004 , in my 6 month follow, I had the CA 125 blood test done. When my Dr. said the test results looked great I was very anxious to know how much the level had dropped. My levels today are at 24 !!!!!!!!!!!. He was very excited about the drop and mentioned that some times it takes up to 2 years to see the levels drop that much. I told him what I was doing the past 2 months or more, he just waved his hand indicating that had nothing to do with the levels dropping, & went on talking. I took ave. of 3 oz 2X / day. I KNOW what I just experienced was mangosteen juice. Another story. A Lady I work with had eczema really really bad. She has this skin problem for years. She has been using a prescription suave on her hands. From time to time it would get better, other times it was so bad her hand would get really raw and red and lots of blisters and was now between her fingers. A few weeks ago I had the courage to tell her about [Mangosteen juice]. She went off on me, stating nothing like that would ever work. I spoke with Johanna about my experience, Johanna suggested that I give her one more piece of information and then make a statement of confidence on the [mangosteen juice] product, but also let her know that it is entirely up to her what she wants to do. I had barly stated my statement when she said, "Bring me a case of 'that' juice you have, I will do anything to get rid of this pain." She was taking 2 oz twice a day.

I brought her a case on a Thursday, she started taking it as soon as she got the product. The following Wed we talked about the results she’s had. In less than a week, her hand was no longer raw, only red but looked healing, the eczema was no longer between her fingers. She had such great results that she is a believer of the product. Laughingly she said, "the day before I started on the Mangosteen Juice I paid a stinkin' $51.00 dollars on a suave that never worked." Fern Bontrager from Indiana – June 24, 2004 ________________________________ Cancer, chemotherapy, & [mangosteen juice] I had recurrent breast cancer, and I was going through my third round of chemotherapy (Taxol and Carboplatin) when I was introduced to [Mangosteen Juice] back in January 2004. I asked my oncologist about this, and he also said not to take an excess of anti-oxidants for the same reasons mentioned below. But, he said I could get all my anti-oxidants only from the "food" I eat. So, since mangosteen is a food, I took only 2 ounces (a maintenance dose) a day during chemo and radiation treatments. Once I started taking the mangosteen, I had no more nausea and I never got a cold or the flu which was going around at that time even though my blood counts were low. I did still experience the severe body aches and fatigue from the chemo, however.

The tape was orange in color. There was a lady on the tape testifying that she had cateracts and was facing surgery. She said that within a couple of months after drinking mangosteen juice her cateracts had shrunk to the point of surgery no longer beong necessary and was hoping for a full recovery. Nina [email protected] --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------When I first heard about Xango [mangosteen juice] I was very skeptical that it could have health benefits in so many different areas. However, I bought a bottle and my husband and I started drinking 2 ounces a day. My husband had the first results. First his back pain disappeared and then his eyesight improved. We had bought 2 different mattresses in six months and after taking the [mangosteen juice] he had no more back pain. Next, he related to me that he could see detail on things that were before only blurry from a distance. Later, [mangosteen juice] cleared a patch of dry skin on his face. All his previous attempts to heal this skin on his face had failed, but [mangosteen juice] turned it around in about a month.

the product and then my depression lifted. I have now been 45 days depression free. What a relief it is to be up and functioning again thanks to this Juice!!! Also, my eyesight has improved so I don't have to wear my eye-glasses anymore. My blood sugar has gone down into the normal range so I don't have to take diabetic medication. Also, I have had a bad case of athlete's foot since 7 years old, nothing would cure it. I also, had fungus on two of my toenails. Now, the athlete's foot is healed and so is my toenail fungus.

I started taking [mangosteen juice] and now I am pain free and not getting any shots and can walk normally! I was also afraid I was losing my hearing and might need a hearing aide. I went to church. Usually I sit in the front so I can hear. However, one Sunday I was late for church and had to sit in the back and I heard everything crystal clear. I have also lost about 10 lbs.

It has given her hope in life. ---------------------------------------------------------------To: [email protected] Sent: Thursday, July 29, 2004 8:40 AM Subject: A Great Big Thank You Thank you so much for the testimonial. It is so great to hear from people who lives have been touched by drinking mangosteen juice. I also have a wonderful story for you. I was going to save it until I saw you but I just can't wait any longer to tell you. Among all my other health issues, my cholesterol was high, 357 in 2003. My doctor put me on Lescol to help lower my cholesterol. I have been taking it for a little over a year. Four months ago, I did not have health insurance due to the fact of changing jobs. Anyway I could not afford the medication. I am now on my seventh bottle of mangosteen juice and I had lab work done last week and my cholesterol was 177!!!! And I am not through. I had a bunionectomy over a year ago and from that I had three large bumps (xanthoma tendon) on my right foot. The largest one is totally gone, the other two are getting smaller. I feel so blessed that I met Georgia and she told me about this miracle juice. Suzi ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sandi; Also, I had been taking Lipitor for years to lower my cholesterol. It has never been under 200. After consulting my Cardiologist I lowered my Lipitor from 40mg to 10mg and then began using angosteen Juice]. 90 days later my cholesterol was 195 and I am now off the Lipitor!- Ann & Gregg Adair ---------------------------------------Dear Debbie, My name is Thomas E. Lowe Jr.M.D., and as you know I was a bit skeptical when I started using Xango Mangosteen juice one ounce three times a day on July 12,2004. I've had Moderately severe Psoriasis for 15 years. One week later I noticed a very definite improvement in my Psoriasis. I am not on any drugs for Psoriasis. I also noted a definite drop in my blood pressure. My usual average BP checked 3 times a day was 144/90 (No BP meds.). After I started the mangosteen juice, my Bp averaged 117/70 taken morning, Noon & Nite. I was also having a lot of arthralgia in my hips, knees, & back, which is completely gone now. I am currently on Zocor 20mg a day for cholesterol. After my next Lipid Panel I may drop the Zocor if my levels are lower than usual to see if the mangosteen juice will KEEP it down by itself. Your Friend , Dr.Tom Lowe -------------------------------------------------------------------1/17/05 SUBJECT: Mangosteen and Cholesterol, Neck Pain, Headaches I have been been taking Zocor, a cholesterol lowering drug, for well over 10 years. My cholesterol levels have been in the 235-250 range. Both of my parents also had high cholesterol levels. After being on mangosteen juice for the past several months, the effects have now apparently kicked in, because my latest blood test came in this week at 194!! That's a 50 point drop from my last test, at a level of 244. The only thing different that I have done in my daily intake is to introduce mangosteen juice into my daily diet (I take 4oz, 2x a day on a regular basis.) I have taken this amount of mangosteen to help handle the pain and headaches following neck surgery in which 3 vertebrae in my neck were fused, 3 disintegrated discs were replaced with bone from my hip, and the 3 fused vertebrae were secured with a titanium plate and 4 screws. The mangosteen has done a better job of handling my neck pain and headaches than the prescription and over the counter drugs that were prescribed. Prior to my pain relief experience, I had been very skeptical of what mangosteen might do for my pain, and that is a big understatement. This latest result of having a 50 point drop (from 244 to 194) in my cholesterol level has made me a big believer. Yvonne Johnson

Terry --------------------------------------------------------Date: Sat Oct 2, 2004 8:01 pm - see Jerry's update below. Parkinsons / COPD/Congestive Heart Failure / High Blood Pressure / High Cholesterol I was 59 years old when I was released from a hospital at the end of October 2003 with some serious health problems. The doctors had told me that I had Parkinsons, rapid eye movement disorder associated with Parkinsons, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), angina, and renal problems. I was sent home on four liters of oxygen and a suit case full of drugs. These are medications that I was on: Atenolol 25mg, Candesartan Cilexetil 16mg, Nitroglycerin 0.4mg tab., Nitrogycerin 0.4mg/hr patch, Lovastatin 20mg, Carbidopa 25/Levodopa 250mg, Entacone 200mg, Clonazepam 1mg, Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg, Glyburide 8mg, Albuterol 90mcg., Advair 500mg. Foradil Aerolizer, Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution 0.083%. I would wake up every morning and walk from my bedroom to the couch, a distance of about 30 feet. I literally fell to the couch because I was completely out of breath. My skin color was turning to an ashen color and the skin under my finger nails was dark blue. A friend came over to see me and brought me a case of [mangosteen juice]. He told me to take it and said that it might help me. He was telling me all the helpful things that this product would or could do. I was very skeptical at first because how could a fruit have so much healing power and work on all the organs in the body at the same time. I asked my doctors about it and they never heard of the fruit. They told me that it would not hurt me to try. I started taking three ounces three times a day and was hoping for an instant cure. It did not happen! I did not feel anything at all until I had finished my third bottle. I noticed that I was sleeping the whole night through and that a little energy was coming back. I could walk from the bedroom to the couch and was not huffing and puffing. After a month on Xango [mangosteen juice], my blood sugar was back down into the 140-150s which was not bad since a month before it was in the 300s. My blood pressure was dropping from 180/90 to 120/70 and my tremors had stopped! I was also checking my oxygen absorption rate everyday and noticed that is was climbing up which is a good thing. I would be getting readings of 88-89 at rest and when I moved around the level dropped to 80-81 before any [mangosteen juice]. At the end of a month on [mangosteen juice], my readings were 94-95% at rest and when moving the level stayed the same!! I began cutting back on all my medication gradually and was taking readings from all my machines. I noticed that when I was cutting back on my medications that I was feeling less and less fatigued. By Christmas time, I was off ALL my medication and oxygen and I had reduced my [mangosteen juice] to only two ounces three times a day. I am still taking two

ounces three times a day. To me this is a miracle fruit. I will be glad to talk to anybody about this product.

Here we see that, even AFTER 3 months, significant improvements can be achieved! Also note, without the doctor's tests, Jan may never have even known she had diabetes, or that it improved. The first thing that our juice did for Jan last June was improve her severe breathing problems (COPD). She has also mentioned to me that her edema (foot and ankle swelling) improved significantly.

Prior to that the only health problem that I had was migraine headaches. In the fall of 2001, my condition became much worse. I was unable to sleep more than an hour at a time and was up and down all night. I awoke each morning extremely stiff throughout my complete body. I would run hot water over my hands until I was able to actually turn the shower on to take a hot shower massage or take a hot bath. I tried everything that I could think of and anything that anyone suggested. Finally in Oct, my doctors put me on disability from work because I could not stand up straight or walk without holding on to a wall or rail, scooting up and down stairs in my home, and walking with a cane when away from home. Additional medicines were added. I was now taking 13 medicines and not getting very much relief. I was taking anti-inflammatories, 2 different anti-depressants, medicine for Irritable

Bowel Syndrome, muscle relaxants, 3 different pain medications, medicine to put and keep me asleep at night and 2 different inhalers for the COPD plus migraine medicines and finally medicine to overcome the stomach problems all the other medications had caused. After 1 month on [MANGOSTEEN JUICE], I'm no longer taking any prescribed medication. I use Mangosteen ([MANGOSTEEN JUICE]) only. I am pain free. My depression is gone. I sleep all night every night instead of fighting to fall asleep and waking constantly all night and have so much energy! Thanks, Mary Mangosteen's Role in Pulmonary Disease. Whole fruit mangosteen intervenes at several points in the disease process of emphysema and chronic bronchitis: 1. The antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal effects of the mangosteen fruit can reduce the frequency of lung infections, thereby reducing cumulative lung tissue damage. As a result, fewer courses of antibiotic therapy are required. 2. The anti-inflammatory effects of the xanthones in whole fruit mangosteen decrease both inflammation and cell damage while helping prevent the onset of deadly pulmonary hypertension. 3. Since mangosteen extract also has potent antioxidant effects, it intervenes in every process where free radical damage, whether from inflammation of chronic bronchitis or the destruction of elastic recoil of the alveoli in emphysema.
