Queen Victoria declared Mangosteen her favourite fruit – and it probably contributed to her longevity because it has a range of health benefits. In-fact it is listed as having some 138 separate benefits.
This extensive range of benefits is because Mangosteen contains several classes of phytonutrient antioxidants and flavonoids, and is the only place in nature to contain a broad spectrum of a class of phytonutrients called Xanthones.
Modern science and medicine agree that the root cause of most sickness and disease begin at the cellular level from free radical damage which leads to chronic low grade inflammation which leads to sickness and disease - xanthones help greatly arrest both.
The anti-inflammatory properties of Mangosteen have been compared in strength to one of the most potent anti-inflammatory prescription drugs, Dexamethasone.
Mangosteen contains Catechins in abundance, which are proven to prevent the formation of carcinogenic compounds by blocking co-carcinogens, thus suppressing cancer promotion or growth. Its Flavonoids help lower LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and help fight certain types of cancer.
The Sterols in Mangosteen are often referred to as "natures Viagra" whilst the Polysaccharides and Proanthocyanidins aids digestive function, aids the body’s immune functions, improves general well being as well as providing extra antioxidant protection against heart disease and cancer
A study in 2002 reported that the anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic capabilities showed great benefit for asthma sufferers and could accomplish what several drugs do. “It is the ideal product to use daily to protect our respiratory systems integrity”.
