Somewhere I read about Mangosteen and your immune system so I bought some yesterday at Whole Foods. I was wondering if I could expect a die-off or herx from it as it is supposed to be pretty potent. Anyone here use Mangosteen?? Thanks   D

This juice is largely cheap pear and apple juice. The amount of active ingredient is too small to be of consequence for health. It might put a bounce in your step because of the sugar content in the pear/apple juice, but that's about all it is good for.

If you want antioxidants, get clove essential oil (over 1 million on the ORAC scale) and Ningxia wolfberries. Nothing else has as high antioxidant properties.

Good luck,

Oh ok, so it's not XanGo. You might find http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangosteen of interest...

Take care,
