What is Vemma?
Vemma is a multi-dimensional wellness and clinically studied formula. Our two Gold Standard, 60-person, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies rely on blood draws and thorough analysis of the data of not only the Vemma formula group, but also a placebo (fake) formula group.
The double-blind part means the participants didn’t know what version they were taking, which is one reason why results from a clinical study far outweigh the surveys filled out in an observational study.
Our two studies showed the Vemma formula significantly boosted immune function, significantly decreased CRP (inflammation) and increased antioxidant levels by 18% within two hours, and kept them saturated for 6 hours (blood draws were done at 0, 2, 4 and 6 hour marks).
Vemma shouldn’t be classified solely as a multivitamin. Phytonutrients and glyconutrients, those plant-based compounds from the superfruit mangosteen, green tea and aloe vera, dominate the contents of this formula as well as our 65+ plant-based minerals. The copper and iron minerals used in the mortality study were elemental … a huge difference to plant-based minerals! Our full-spectrum vitamin blend makes up only a small part of a sound overall wellness strategy, and numerous positive studies have confirmed beneficial properties of vitamins.
What are Xanthones?
Xanthones are biologically active plant phenols found in a few selected tropical plants. Current research on Xanthones suggests they are beneficial in helping with many conditions including: allergies, infections (microbial, fungus, viral), cholesterol levels, inflammation, skin disorders, gastro-intestinal disorders, and fatigue.
Xanthones are powerful antioxidants in a family of phytonutrients, which is beneficial for neutralizing free radicals in the body.
Facts about Xanthones
|Xanthones are some of the most potent antioxidants known. It is thought to be more potent than both Vitamin C and Vitamin E. In fact, many doctors refer to Xanthones as “Super Antioxidants.“…|
Xanthones are heat stable molecules. Unlike proteins, they won’t denature or lose their structure when heated.
Xanthones, have been touted by independent researchers to have properties to include anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant, anti-allergic, anti-tumor, and anti-platelet, to name just a few.
Some of the most important Xanthones found in mangosteen include:
Medical Properties & Health Benefits of Xanthones
Scientific research has made it abundantly clear that no other fruit compares in its health benefits to mangosteen, due to its Xanthones and other nutritional properties.
The Xanthones function to travel through your body, literally mopping up the free radicals on their way, leaving your body cleaner and healthier than before.
Helping to fight cancer is just one of the many properties that different Xanthones perform. For instance, one study performed in Japan showed that the xanthone alpha-mangostin had apparent properties that suppressed the development of tumors.
Another, performed in China, found the xanthone garcinone E to show significant anti-cancer effects in terms of liver, lung, and gastric cancer cells.
There is also a recent study that has confirmed that gamma mangostin, a xanthones derivative found in the mangosteen, is a potent COX (Cyclooxgenase) 2 inhibitor. The COX 2 enzyme is a chemical in the body that causes inflammation. This enzyme is commonly found in people suffering from joint pain and arthritis.
However, it is also being found with other diseases as well, that are not as obvious, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Diabetes. In three separate studies, a Xanthones derivative of the mangosteen slowed down the body’s production of the COX 2 enzyme.
In addition, some Xanthones have shown significant antimicrobial effects in terms of fighting MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), which is a bacterial strain known for its tenacious resistance to pharmacologic antibiotics. One scientific study also showed that alpha-mangostin, beta-mangostin, and garcinone B to have pronounced inhibition effects on a strain of tuberculosis.
As if that isn’t enough, Xanthones have also been scientifically proven to help lower LDL, the bad cholesterol, by protecting the LDL from coming into contact with free radicals, thus leaving it unable to oxidize and attach to arterial walls and cause atherosclerosis.
Taking into account the anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and cholesterol-lowering effects of the Xanthones found in mangosteen, there are many other benefits that science has either researched or is in the process of discovering. You may get the report here.

Vemma Clinical Studies
|Changes in IL-1α Concentration (Immunity Marker)The purpose of the first independent, randomized, double-blind placebo study evaluated how Vemma enhanced immune function and well-being in humans.*
Participants were randomly divided into two groups and received 2 ounces of Vemma or placebo each morning for 30 days.
After the 30-day evaluation, the study showed favorable results in immune markers and a lowering of C-reactive protein (CRP) while taking Vemma.*
