Pictures of How The Natural Home Cures Mangosteen Product is Manufactured
Mangosteen dietary supplements made their debut on the American market in 2002 and the product generated quite a buzz. Dubbed as the “Queen of Fruits”, it caught the attention of the public and sent shock waves across the globe – from the realm of homeopathic medicine to the dietary supplement industry. A number of companies were quick to pounce on the opportunity and before we knew it, various mangosteen products sprouted like mushrooms and were on the market. However, this discussion will focus primarily on mangosteen capsules and how the different products compare in terms of certain criteria.
Mangosteen is usually taken for holistic health and no one would argue about the substantial health benefits that can be derived from the fruit. The best mangosteen supplements out there are manufactured from the rind of this superfruit. In order to make mangosteen capsules in the best possible way, the fruit is to freeze dried. This is because other antioxidant extraction methods like solvent usage may cause significant damage to the quality of the antioxidants and the nutrients.
You may notice
are selling outrageously expensive mangosteen capsules. However, this
highlights the abuse of consumer credibility because even though the
be labeled “Mangosteen”, it does not necessarily mean that you will be
100% mangosteen. As a consumer, you must be aware of the dubious
some greedy companies that are taking advantage of mangosteen’s immense
popularity nowadays. For instance, if you look closely at the
ingredients/supplement facts of some mangosteen products, you would
it says “Proprietary Blend Mangosteen”. To a layman, nothing seems
long as the word mangosteen is present. However, the terms were
chosen to conceal both the true quantity and quality of mangosteen that
Some products are candid enough to disclose that what they are offering is simply a mangosteen extract. Again, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that… unless you know exactly what an extract is. An extract can be defined as a preparation containing the active ingredient of a substance in concentrated form. Extracts are often made by using a solvent such as ethanol or water. Simply put, a mangosteen extract is not 100% mangosteen since it is mixed with other components (usually alcohol). In order to harness all the healthful benefits that mangosteen has to offer, you need more than just an extract. You need the fruit processed in such a way that you don’t lose the precious xanthones that you are after. You have to isolate the xanthones and avoid interactions with other substances as much as possible so they don’t lose their potent antioxidant properties.
Now, you know how some companies are able to market their mangosteen capsules at a much lower price. It’s quite alarming because such products get pitched all the time and a lot of honest health-seekers are spending their hard-earned cash on them without really reaping the true benefits of mangosteen. This is a classic case wherein paying less is not always best as there are several things to consider when making a decision as to which brand of powdered mangosteen supplement to go with.
The Natural Home Cures Super Formula, Fast Acting Mangosteen, comes in bottles of 120 capsules (515 mg/capsule). This is in sharp contrast to other brands on the market which offer as few as 60 capsules. Still others may offer a few more capsules but you would have you to take two of their capsules just to achieve the recommended dosage. It is important that you do not allow yourself to be fooled by advertisements and marketing ploys which may convince you to purchase low-quality mangosteen capsules.
Mangosteen capsules are an easy way to maintaining good health. However, it is important to note that they are only as good as their processing, the environment they are grown in and the ingredients that go into the manufacturing process. The best form of mangosteen capsules are produced with nothing more than the rind and are contained within naturally made capsules. The mangosteen capsules offered by Natural Home Cures are manufactured from mangosteen harvested in a large farm in Thailand. The fruits are grown without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. The mangosteen and its pericarp are processed with the highest standards of quality and you can rest assured that what you are getting is 100% mangosteen along with all the benefits that this superfruit has to offer.
Scams are common and somewhat ubiquitous on the Internet, especially in the mangosteen market. And while some of these 'free offer' scams are quickly found by authorities, often times they open back up under a different business name within hours of being shut down.
Let's get more familiar with the anatomy of the 'free trial mangosteen' scam, some of this may sound familiar. First, you receive an enticing offer to try a new mangosteen product in which all you have to pay for is the shipping and handling (a nominal cost). During sign up, you are presented with other offers such as paid magazine subscriptions, a paid membership to the site (which should be your first warning), free upgraded mangosteen products and/or almost anything else under the sun. Once you've completed the necessary steps, which include providing your credit card number, the steel-cage door is shut, so to speak, and you're locked into the scam. This is where the nightmare begins.
you know that given the terms of your agreement, if you don't cancel
within 30 days you'll be charged for the next months' subscription.
Unfortunately, there is no way to cancel. You look for an email
address, telephone number or any other contact information only to
find that all you have is a company name, website address, and
physical post office box location.
However, being Internet savvy, you know that you can find the information you need by going to the Internet Domain Registry and doing a search for the domain name but once again you will have reached a dead end; when you get to the domain registry you will find that the web site address is unlisted. The only real way to get the information is to either be in law enforcement or know someone who is.
Once you have the contact information of the company (however it is that you get it) you'll likely find an “out of service” message when you try to call them. If you're enough lucky to get a live person on the phone you'll be put on hold and transferred from one person to another like a ping-pong ball until you give up and, in the end, wind up with some hefty phone charges for your trouble.
now realize that phoning is just a waste of time and you decide to
file a dispute with your bank. This could take ages before anything
gets resolved because the banks themselves can’t trace and/or
verify transactions from these bogus companies. Finally, out of sheer
frustration and disgust, you decide to cancel your credit card. All
the while, your credit card has been charged multiple times because
you're locked into a subscription and you end up paying 4 or even 5
times the price that you would have if you had just purchased Natural
Home Cures Mangosteen.
Moving forward, the whole ordeal has taken about three months to 'fix' and you're stuck with at least two months worth of product that you can't return. Since you can't get your money back you decide that you may as well consume the product you've purchased but to your dismay you learn that the supplement you paid so much for is inferior and the actual mangosteen content is almost non-existent!
That’s how these scammers make their money, by selling cheap products and locking you into subscription plans. This happens more often with mangosteen juice than it does with pills because with the juice you only need to add water to dilute it and unless you have access to a product testing laboratory (which few people do) you will never know if you're drinking over-priced water or a mangosteen supplement.
So how do you know which companies won't scam you? First off, never believe those 'free offers'. We all know that nothing in life is truly free. Natural Home Cures does not offer free mangosteen. Instead, our mangosteen is priced below our closest competitor's product (as you will learn in a few minutes).
The second thing you need to look for is how long the company has been in business. A company which is not above-board will be here today and gone tomorrow. They will have no proven history of how long they have been in business for because most of them will be less than a year old.
third thing to look for is how prominently contact details are
displayed on their website. Is there a mailing address and a
telephone number that you yourself have verified?
Natural Home Cures has been in business for 5 years and our contact information is prominently displayed on almost every page of our website. In fact, if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you'll see just what I'm talking about.
fourth thing you should make sure to look
for is if the company lets
you buy their product as you need it or if you are forced into
paying a monthly charge for your mangosteen 'subscription'.
Alternatively, the site may automatically renew your order every
month but not officially lock you into a monthly contract: either
'choice' should be considered unacceptable.
Natural Home Cures only offers a “buy as needed” option with our products: you are never locked into a fixed recurring monthly charge.
last thing to look for is the companies' money back policy. Most
companies typically offer you only 30 days from the date of purchase
to return your product. This means that by the time you receive the
first order your return window will have already expired. Returning
the product under the best of circumstances, of course, hinges on you
being lucky enough to find the companies' contact details.
Natural Home Cures differentiates itself from its competition by offering you the longest money back guarantee in the industry: we let you try our product for up to 4 months.
sad truth is, most companies that offer free trial mangosteen
supplements are scammers. They just want your credit card number in
order to lock you into a monthly subscription that, if you'd read all
the fine-print, you wouldn't have signed up for in the first place.
They sell inferior products and don't care about your health or
well-being. Natural Home Cures is different: our product is made from
100% mangosteen pericarp (the rind of the fruit) which is where all
the beneficial compounds are found. Our drying process preserves all
those healthful compounds and we sell the end result to you at a fair
price. There's no paying for water with us. With Natural Home Cures,
all you pay for is pure, dried mangosteen. Don't believe me? Look us
up, read our testimonials
section or better yet, call us with any
questions that you might have. I think you'll find our reputation for
selling top quality products at competitive prices is well deserved.
And, if you're not satisfied with our product simply send it back -- no
contracts. No fuss. No questions asked.
Irradiation is a high-tech way of treating the mangosteen you consume through the use of 10 kilorays of ionizing radiation – a bacteria-killing surge of energy equal in power to 150 million chest X-rays. The purpose is to kill, fungi or bacteria, insects (specifically, the Asian fruit fly that is transported from Asia from food entering into North America) and to prevent agricultural cross contamination. The drawback to irradiating food is that it depletes many different vitamins: A, thiamine, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid, C, E, and K as well as some amino acids and essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. In addition, carcinogens can also be deposited in irritated foods, which you then consume when you eat the food.
In recent experiments conducted by German government scientists, one of these chemicals, 2-dodecylcyclobutanone ¾ or 2-DCB ¾ was shown to cause genetic damage when given to rats and genetic and cellular damage to human and rat cells. Two other chemicals in the cyclobutanone family 2-TCB¾ and 2-TDCB ¾ were also shown to cause genetic and cellular damage to human cells.
Only whole fruits such as those found in liquid mangosteen juice need to be irradiated. Dry, powdered mangosteen pericarp that Natural Home Cures offers is not irradiated so you can rest assured that with Natural Home Cures you will receive only 100% non-irradiated mangosteen.
Thailand and the
Philippines are the worlds largest suppliers of mangosteen fruit and
also one of the biggest users of pesticides in the South Asia
region. Most of the pesticides are imported;
The three main insecticides used are the organophosphates monocrotophos, methamidophos, and methyl parathion, all of which contain carcinogens and other pathogens. Human consumption of these pathogens, over time, could result in various deadly diseases.Before you purchase a liquid mangosteen or any other mangosteen product for that matter, ask yourself this question: "How clean is my mangosteen? "
part of the mangosteen is the pericarp (rind or skin) because of its
rich xanthone content. Chemical pesticides sprayed on the
mangosteen tree will end up on the fruit, especially the
skin. Determining how heavily sprayed the fruit is and what
pesticides were used is often difficult because most companies get
their pericarp from fruit canning companies. These companies
can/bottle the pulp (white inner meat) and throw away the skin as
“waste material,” which is then swept off the floor and sold to
companies looking for pericarp. Since these large canning
companies purchase their fruits from many different farms, the quality
the pericarp will be inconsistent. The cleanliness of the factory
floors is also a concern.
In fact, we pride ourselves on it! Why would anyone market a product that does not maintain quality standards all the way from the harvesting to the end consumable product.
Our mangosteen is grown on one large mangosteen farm in Thailand. It’s grown without chemicals (that means no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers). The mangosteen and its pericarp are processed with cleanliness in mind. Although our product is not labeled organic because the fields haven't been certified by a US organic certifying agency, as our farms are not within the United States, they are certified by BCS Oko-Garantie. This means that they meet the inspecting procedures, applied inspection, and control procedures of the Japanese Agricultural Standard of Organic Agricultural Products (JAS) of the Japanese Ministry of Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF). The Japanese organic standards are very similar to those of the United States (and more strict in some areas). With our product, you can rest assured that no pesticides are being sprayed on the pericarp and that the processing of our mangosteen product is of the highest quality.
So, the next
think about purchasing your liquid mangosteen or any other mangosteen
for that matter, ask yourself this question: "Does
mangosteen you're consuming come with any dirty secrets?"
