State of the Mangosteen Category: 2009

Mangosteen category-creator XanGo continues its leadership in product innovation with green skincare application

Next phase of performance research shows XanGo(R) Juice reduces inflammation in obese subjects

Statement by Robert Conlee, CEO of XanGo, LLC

LEHI, Utah, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- XanGo, LLC, the first company to market a premium mangosteen beverage, continues to lead the superfruit movement. As a global nutrition company, XanGo now reaches 23 countries and is expanding the benefits of the popular mangosteen to new applications. With the launch of Glimpse(TM) Intuitive Skincare, XanGo revisits its category-creating status by introducing the first personal care product to feature the power of the mangosteen at its foundation to deliver the fruit's numerous nutrients through a green, toxin-free formula that protects consumer's health and the environment.

Introducing Innovative, Topical Mangosteen Experience

The development of a personal care brand using mangosteen was a natural progression in the company's growth following last year's introduction of 3SIXTY5(TM), a whole food nutrition mangosteen-based multi-vitamin. In November 2008, XanGo introduced Glimpse Intuitive Skin Care as topical nutrition that is free of harsh chemicals and featuring green chemistry technology in self-adjusting formulas.

One of the formula's driving ingredients is BioActive X(3) Complex(TM), a proprietary ingredient that incorporates an exclusive biofermentation technology that combines meticulous, time-honored techniques with advanced science from Japan to amplify the phytonutrient potency of the mangosteen. The inclusion of these three exclusive ingredients with mangosteen-infused water helps ensure optimum nutrient density in the formulas to further promote the health-giving properties of the mangosteen.

XanGo has made a public commitment to green chemistry by signing the Compact for Safe Cosmetics, by which the company pledges to do no harm and to comply with EU directive 1776 that bans the use of several chemicals popularly used in personal care products in the U.S.

Rising to the Popularity of the Mangosteen

Exotic, nutrient-packed fruits are taking front stage in the natural health marketplace. As the National Restaurant Association reports, superfruits have sustained consumer interest and represent a significant area of growth in 2009. These antioxidant-packed fruits rank 7th among "Top 20" hot trends and 3rd among products in "What's Hot" in a chef survey done by the NRA.

XanGo was able to get ahead of and capitalize on that trend when it introduced the category-creating XanGo(R) Juice just six years ago. Since that time and several new product introductions later, XanGo is now a cumulative $1.5 billion sales company. With more than 1 million direct sales distributors worldwide, XanGo now spans four continents.

Even in a tough economy, XanGo is positioned well as it continues to experience strong sales. Both natural products and direct sales fare well during an economic downturn as evidenced by data released by Information Resources Inc. citing nationwide retail sales of vitamins and supplements that totaled nearly $639 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, a 10 percent jump from 2007. Meanwhile, the direct sales industry operates at 5 percent higher growth than the gross domestic product when the economy contracts, according to the Direct Selling Association. All of which bodes well for XanGo, which fortuitously represents the best of both natural products and direct sales.

Leading Scientific Research on Mangosteen Performance

With scientific partners that include Northridge, Calif.-based Medicus Research, Weber State University and leading independent laboratories, XanGo continues to spearhead scientific exploration of the whole mangosteen fruit through a tiered approach on safety, standardization and efficacy.

In XanGo's most recent independent research of the mangosteen completed in January 2009, promising peer-reviewed clinical trials by the UCLA School of Medicine's Dr. Jay K. Udani have shown that XanGo(R) Juice reduces inflammation in obese subjects, which may be valuable in preventing the progression to diabetes and heart disease. This eight-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study included a pre-study two-week washout period. It evaluated the effect of multiple dosages of a proprietary mangostoeen juice on indicators of inflammation and antioxidant levels in obese patients with elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) levels.

Previous independent research sponsored by XanGo has demonstrated that the proprietary whole fruit formula in XanGo Juice leads to high levels of xanthone absorption while unnaturally elevated levels of xanthone consumption actually were shown to decrease absorption efficiency.

XanGo is intent on continuing to lead the worldwide market in mangosteen-based research and category-creating mangosteen-based products. Expect more research in the coming years that continues to validate existing claims about the mangosteen and further product extensions that broaden the benefits of the mangosteen to myriad oral, topical and other wellness applications.
