The xanthone-packed rind and the many health benefits of the Mangosteen are grabbing the attention of the health and functional food industry with several independent lab companies investigating the use of Mangosteen in a variety of over-the-counter drugs.
Mangosteen has been found to contain over 40 different xanthones, which are mostly concentrated in the pericarp, or fruit wall. No other known plant offers the same quantity and variety of xanthones as Mangosteen. Many of the beneficial xanthones found in Mangosteen have been shown to possess antioxidative properties several times more powerful and potent than vitamin E and C. Research has shown that these xanthones can have a positive effect on maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. Scientists in India and Japan began investigating Mangosteen in the 1990s and demonstrated that Mangosteen has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Mangosteen is also rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, iron, fiber, protein, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, cathechins/tannins and niacin.
The uses of Mangosteen as a potent health supplement date back as far as 600 AD. In today’s global marketplace, people from all walks of life are attracted to the health benefits of Mangosteen. Known as the “food of the gods” due to its exquisite flavor and exceptional nutrition, the Mangosteen fruit has been described as tasting like a blend of strawberry, peach, and vanilla ice cream.
The phytoceuticals (plant chemicals) of the mangosteen fruit have been widely studied; in particular the class of highly active substances called xanthones has captured researchers’ attention.
Xanthones are also known as “adaptagens” for their unique ability to adapt to the needs of the body. In other words, they modulate and assist the body in many different areas.
Science has identified approximately 200 different xanthones that occur naturally (i.e. in certain plants, fruits, herbs, etc). The mangosteen fruit alone possesses over 40 different xanthones. In addition, mangosteen has some of the most potent xanthones studied to date.
