grows in abundance in Thailand &
southeast Asia but has a relatively short growing season. It is renowned as
the Queen of Fruits for its delicious sweet white fruit but it is in the bitter tasting pericarp (rind) where the greatest value abides.
Sun-dried Mangosteen pericarp yield the highest Tannin concentration of 5.5%.
Mangosteen contains the following phytochemicals:
Mangosteen has long been used in Asia for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and has been effectively used for treatment of various skin conditions as well as a traditional tonic for fatigue and low energy. There may be no other plant more widely used and studied in Asia that is so unfamiliar to the Western world.
Anti-bacterial and anti-viral
Highest content of Xanthones from the organic fruit rind
Strong antioxidant rejuvenating benefits
Over the past six years, noted ethnobiologist,
Dr. James Duke has identified 210 distinct active ingredients each of which
play a role
in maintaining balance in the human body. The value of mangosteen has two important components:
(1) antioxidant properties and
(2) other medicinal properties of Xanthones.
Holistic health properties:
The dried mangosteen pericarp (rind or peel) mixed with mineral water or massage oil makes a powerful paste for body scrubs and face masks.
Mangosteen rind powder is used to treat numerous skin disorders and contains high levels of xanthones providing anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties essential for healing eczema and psoriasis and natural compounds that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-tumor activity.
Laboratory tests have indicated that extracts of mangosteen have shown activity against several cancer cell lines including breast, liver, and leukemia.
The Mangosteen tree originates from the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas. Most of the Mangosteens grown are harvested in the Far East, mainly in Thailand, Vietnam, China, and Taiwan. It takes about 15 years before the Mangosteen tree bears fruit. Mangosteen fruit
does not ripen well after harvesting, so it should be harvested when ripe or almost ripe. It is usually eaten fresh but it can be stored for a
few weeks. The fruit (pulp), is known for being one of the tastiest in the world.
Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules
generated by our bodies during metabolism (at a level that your natural defense
normally handle), but which are generated more abundantly in response to unnatural stress, exposure to air pollution, smoking, pesticides
and other environmental factors. The enormous increase in these free radicals from environmental stress can overwhelm your body.
A free radical occurs when an oxygen molecule looses one of its two electrons making it incomplete. This free radical looks to take on an
electron from healthy molecules destroying the healthy cells in the process and generating a chain reaction which creates more and more
free radicals. This can disturb the equilibrium between various organs as well as the stability of the organism as a whole (homeostasis)
and cause various illnesses including cancer, diabetes, liver disease, inflammation and arthritis, and accelerate the process of aging.
Contained in the skin pulp (rind) of the Mangosteen
fruit are powerful, life-enhancing substances which scientists have named
Xanthones. These are natural chemical substances that are found nowhere in nature in more abundance than in the rind of the
Mangosteen fruit. Modern medical research supports the fact that the apha mangostin and gamma manostin Xanthones are among
the most powerful and effective antioxidants found anywhere in nature. In their natural form (not synthesized in a laboratory) these are
digested and metabolized and help your body to fight oxidation and the deleterious effects that result.
Xanthones are naturally occurring biological
chemically active compounds which couple with other molecules to become beneficial
great many systems in our bodies. Xanthones have been intensely and thoroughly studied for several decades regarding their medicinal
effects and pharmaceutical properties. No plant in nature has a higher concentration or variety of xanthones than mangosteen.
Twenty- four distinct xantones have been identified in mangosteen rind. Researchers have demonstrated their positive effect on
cardiovascular health; and their antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties in addition to their being a powerful antioxidant.
They boost our energy, prevent pain, reduce anxiety, help to prevent Alzheimers disease and dementia, and have anti-tumor and cancer
properties. There is probably not a more well- rounded or overall beneficial herbal supplement than mangosteen, and in our highly concentrated powdered form you should enjoy both the short term and long term positive results. more research data
Anti-inflammatory properties of Mangosteen
are comparable in strength to Dexamethasone, a potent anti-inflammatory prescription
drug. However, take a look at the long list of possible adverse side effects of Dexamethasone compared to the use of mangosteen which is
without adverse side effects. The many health benefits we derive by the use of mangosteen are without any known negative side effects.
Dr. James Dukes list of proven attributes
of garcina mangostana are most impressive and include:

Many of the remaining effects are major such as analgesic action (controls pain), anti-inflammatory, and anti-ulcer properties
(stomach, mouth, and bowel ulcers).
Dr. James Duke, now retired, worked for the USDA for 35 years and the University of Maryland. He created a comprehensive phytochemical and ethnobotanical database as a guide into the health potential of Mangosteen and many other plants.
