I understand that there are studies that show potential positive impact, including depressing histamines and combating specific types of cancers, but what I have been saying since the beginning of my part of the discussion, and what I should make more clear, is I object to the selling of Xango as a cure-all. Just read or listen to the info from the Xango folks. They are often very, very careful to not say, "Xango cures cancer", but they leave the impression that it does; and helps with pain, diabetes, etc. What I would like to see is why should I spend $60 / liter on Xango - WHICH HAS NOT BEEN TESTED - instead of $5 / liter for pomegranate juice.
Again, I understand there are studies that show that extracts from the Mangosteen may hold some promise in combating certain aliments. Never said I didn't believe that. I just object to the "Xango cured me, buy some, it will cure you" multi-level marketing machine. I object to people, many with good intentions, off to make a buck, by-passing the "obdurate pharmaceutical companies", taking money from people with NO CERTIFIABLE STUDIES showing this juice is better than water.
Is Xango better than water? Pomegranate juice? Cranberry juice? "__fill in the blank__" juice? How do you know, other than random people saying, "It made me feel better"? Again, I do not doubt that people say they feel better / are cured from drinknig Xango - I just doubt Testimonials. I have a close friend who swears by this stuff...I don't doubt that she does get some benefit...but I am concerned that there will be people that will by-pass real Science and real medicine in favor of juice.
