Xango Review — Is it a scam?
XANGO is a MLM company operating in the health and wellness business sector. The company was founded in 2002 and is based out of Lehi, Utah.
This MLM is geared toward Millennials, focusing most of its recruiting efforts toward women.
Along with selling products, this company also gives back to the community. XANGO Goodness Foundation donates a percentage of net corporate profits to children’s foundations around the world.
XANGO offers a variety of products that contain extracts from the mangosteen fruit. This fruit is said to have major health benefits and is the key ingredient to every XANGO product. This fruit is native to Southeast Asia and is packed full with fiber and is low in calories. Mangosteen also contains a high concentration of antioxidants and xanthones.

Although a large portion of the products claim to be clinically tested and approved, it is important to note that they are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
It is also to recognize that the effectiveness and safety of the key ingredient (mangosteen) is sketchy. There have been studies that warn consumers of the possible dangers of ingesting extracts from this fruit.
This company’s compensation plan is very complicated and not easy to understand. Similar, to other MLM’s this plan showcases the potential for huge earnings. However, actually attaining these huge payouts can prove to be very difficult.
To see the compensation plan for yourself, click here.
To get started as a XANGO distributor you will have to pay a $35 distributor fee and purchase a starter-kit ($100). Next, you will also have to purchase 4 bottles of XANGO juice which will cost you an additional $100.
There are several different levels that you as a distributor can reach. However, your qualification to a higher level depends on the success of your downline.
If you have a good group of successful people on your team you have the potential to earn a generous amount of money. However, if you have a weak group of people your ability to advance to a higher level will be impossible.
If you are lucky, and are able to succeed with this MLM you have the potential to earn 50% commissions.
Although this company offers its distributors with an amazing opportunity to earn generous pay outs, it is highly unlikely that you will reach the advanced levels and earn that money.
There are a few details that give cause for concern.
First, the company compensation plan is very complex and difficult to understand.
Second, the products sold by this MLM are quite expensive. For example, one bottle of XANGO Juice costs distributors $25. Suggested retail price is $45, garnishing you a $20 profit.
With high product costs and a confusing compensation plan, this company may not be the best choice for those interested in joining an MLM. You have to take into account how realistic it is to sell such expensive products.
