The Queen of Fruits: Modern Research and Ancient Wisdom Finally Agree

The Mystery of the Queen of Fruits

Modern Research and Ancient Wisdom Finally Agree
Mangosteen Fruit

Mangosteen fruit, known as the “Queen of Fruits,” has been used for centuries by the people of Southeast Asia to treat an incredible array of ailments. We now know it contains an impressive variety of vitamins and minerals, but the most exciting components are a group of phytochemicals called xanthones (pronounced ZAN-thnz) that are ONLY found in the rind. This is critical because most mangosteen products on the market do NOT include the rindOur mangosteen powder does. Xanthones have powerful antioxidant properties(1), and they are at the center of modern research on the potential to treat major ailments such as:
The phytochemicals found in the rind of mangosteen has been found to inhibit the growth of liver cancer cells(2). Another study found that these phytochemicals extracted from mangosteen significantly suppressed growth of tumors that could lead to breast cancer and inhibited metastasis (spreading) in surrounding lymph tissues(3). Yet another study went as far as suggesting that the phytochemicals found in mangosteen are “a potential anti-colon cancer candidate(4).”
Mangosteen’s phytochemicals were found to have comparable effects to the anti-diabetic drug acarbose, which inhibits enzymes that cause starches to break down into glucose(5).
One of the most important aspects of mangosteen is its anti-inflammatory capabilities(6). The anti-inflammatory power of the phytochemicals in mangosteen has ranged from improving symptoms related to allergic asthma(7) to the inflammation associated with cardiovascular damage(8).
 Pain and Infections      
Because mangosteen can act as an anti-inflammatory, it has been shown to have pain relieving effects, too. One study noted the traditional uses of mangosteen in Southeast Asia for abdominal pain, dysentery, wound infections and chronic ulcers, going on to scientifically observe mangosteen’s potential to relive pain and inflammation(9).

Applications of mangosteen have been shown to be effective in minimizing acne. One study showed that mangosteen was successful in scavenging free radicals, as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant which can be useful in relieving common skin conditions(10).

Review by Ricki

Mangosteen Powder

“I have been sick for years with something that doctors never figured out. They wanted to put me on several prescription drugs. Since they never found a diagnosis, I felt no drug could do anything but treat symptoms, so why deal with the side effects? I decided to treat myself naturally. Mangosteen Powder was one of my treatments. I used it for immune system improvement since that seemed to be what happened to me as a result from whatever caused this mystery illness. UNBELIEVABLE results!!!! Ordering more!”
