XanGo – Trial and Tribulation for Mangosteen Juice

The dates that follow are to the best of my knowledge. The end intent is the same. To clear up whether XanGo LLC has a patent or not on their mangosteen juice.  So you don’t have to scan this post the answer is a resounding “YES Xango’s patent has been granted”.

Confusion arises because the original filing for the patent goes back to 2002 and a long legal process with two other MLM companies that challenged the validity of the application for patent.

Patent US8,524,285 was granted in 2013, amid joyous news on  Xango’s blog, Xango distributor websites and standard commentary by MLM industry pundits. The confusion arises because the grant of patent was challenged, yet again. Some pundits are confused that this challenged happened after Xango issued the good news of the patent being granted.  This is NOT the case and Xango LLC issued their news to their distributors after the patent challenge failed.

Xango Juice patent granted 2013

Xango’s patent was granted September 3, 2013 but the decision to grant the Xango patent was appealed. This is where some people get confused as little was heard of the outcome from the appeal.

The appeal was adjudicated upon and the decision in Xango’s favour in early 2014. So Xango does have a patent for their mangosteen  juice puree of the whole mangosteen fruit.

What Does The XanGo Patent State?

First time I read the Xango patent application back in 2007, I fell asleep.

However, on reading the patent again I was most surprised. Here is an excerpt:

“In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the mixture of mangosteen fruit pulp and pericarp is complemented by the addition of one or more juice concentrates selected from the group consisting of alfalfa juice concentrate, apple juice concentrate, apricot juice concentrate, banana juice concentrate, blueberry juice concentrate, cantaloupe juice concentrate, carrot juice concentrate, celery juice concentrate, cherry juice concentrate, cranberry juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, grapefruit juice concentrate, green barley juice concentrate, green lettuce juice concentrate, kale juice concentrate, kiwi fruit juice concentrate, orange juice concentrate, papaya juice concentrate, parsley juice concentrate, pear juice concentrate, pear puree, pineapple juice concentrate, prune juice concentrate, raspberry juice concentrate, spinach juice concentrate, strawberry juice concentrate and tomato juice concentrate.”

Now what a surprise “Did You Know?” that statement is. Now I don’t know how to interpret that in a commercial patent copyright setting. It raises more questions; such as is there more than the 9 usual fruits and berries that are spoken about in some videos. Do we have to read the label every time to see if we may also have papaya or kale in Xango Juice?

HAhaha!  🙂 That leads to an interesting answer to “What is in Xango mangosteen juice?”.  I guess it is to keep us guessing.  Folks!  Its a secret. Or just search YouTube for the answer.

What are the benefits of Xango Juice?

Wow! I didn’t expect to find any info like this in the XanGo Patent but this excerpt is from the patent grant.  Read the patent long enough and you will find clinical examples of how effective the composition of the mangosteen fruit pulp and pericarp mixture was in certain conditions.

“The effectiveness in improving general health and wellness of the nutraceutical mangosteen compositions described herein is demonstrated from the following clinical examples; which are listed for illustrative purposes only and are not meant to be limiting instances of therapeutic use.” 

Then there is the following text within the Xango Patent:

“The nutraceutical compositions of the present invention deliver therapeutic amounts of natural xanthone compounds derived from the mangosteen fruit pulp and pericarp mixture.”

For the described “clinical examples of how effective the composition of the mangosteen fruit pulp and pericarp mixture was in certain conditions” may I suggest you refer to the link above and go to the XanGo Patent and read in amazement as I did.

How Much XanGo Juice Should I Take?

Within the XanGo Patent you will also find out how much each of the clinical examples ingested of the mangosteen beverage.

While my blog post answer to this question is still the most relevant.

” Each subject ingested 3 ounces of the beverage daily for a three week period.” For those of us that share a common decimal means of measurement, 3 ounces is 90 mLs.

How Many Mangosteens are In a Bottle of XanGo Juice?

Read the XanGo patent and you can also answer this question. My response is a previous post about 19 FAQs, is really relevant, view FAQ 9 and FAQ 10. Here is the patent extract:

“The nutraceutical compositions of the present invention deliver therapeutic amounts of natural xanthone compounds derived from the mangosteen fruit pulp and pericarp mixture.”

My interpretation of this is that XanGo must measure some component of xanthones, there are currently 63 known xanthones in mangosteen. Quantification of a xanthone allows for regional, seasonal and other variations so that the fruit component can increase or decrease according to the patent formulation.
