Mangosteen: An Old Fruit With New Benefits

Category: Health  

Mangosteen is a beautiful, exotic, tropical fruit that is nearly entirely used for medicinal purposes.

The fruit, rind, twig, bark, and juice from the fruit may serve as effective remedies for many conditions. It is not to be confused with the mango. Mangosteen originates from Southeast Asia, but grows in many tropical climates worldwide.

The fruit is deep purple in color and the inside is bright white. It gives the consumer a sweet and sour flavor all in one making it not only great as a preventative and treatment for many ailments, but also delicious.

Mangosteen & Daily Uses

This unique fruit is often eaten as a dessert and is thought to be Queen Victoria’s favorite fruit. It can also be made into a jam and eaten with toast as a spread for breakfast. In this way you can take in the benefits of this fruit as part of your usual daily routine.

Adding Mangosteen to your daily health regimen is easy and highly recommended. This fruit powder is incredibly nutritious providing 3.5 grams of fiber per serving, 9 percent of the vitamin C we should be getting in and 15 percent of the B vitamin folate. All of this for just 180 calories and 1 gram of fat!

Mangosteen & Antioxidants

The antioxidant power of Mangosteen may make it an effective supplement for many health conditions and as a preventative.* Antioxidants might work in the body to rid the body of free radicals that cause cell damage.* When this damage is allowed to continue and replicate, it may lead to the development of cancer and other chronic conditions.

A primary result of free radical damage may be chronic inflammation. This inflammation might also lead to the development of chronic conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.* As an antioxidant, Mangosteen Powder may work to eliminate these conditions at the source by reducing inflammation and free radical cell damage.*

Mangosteen produces pinkish white flowers that grow solitary or arranged in pairs.

Mangosteen Benefits

So what all does Mangosteen Powder pretend to do? The range of benefits provided by Mangosteen Powder are wide and varied. As an anti-microbial, Mangosteen may help with UTI’s, menstrual cramps, osteoarthritis, infections, and gastrointestinal issues.*

The fiber and vitamin C content of Mangosteen Powder may give it impressive immune support benefits.* Part of Mangosteen’s immune benefits might come from the improvement in gut health it might produce*. The fiber content may feed good bacteria in the gut which might help promote a healthy immune system as the bulk of the immune system exists in the intestines.*

Those living with a diabetes diagnosis may have some hope in controlling their glucose through natural means. Mangosteen has been shown to both help improve glucose control as well as help improve insulin resistance.*

A population study looking at cancer rates and diet showed cultures with diets high in fruits like Mangosteen had lower rates of cancer.* Animal studies have shown a reduction in the rate of growth in colon and breast cancers.*

Some people have seen improvements in the health of their skin by applying Mangosteen Powder to the skin with a carrier oil.* The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant content of the powder may make it useful in treating eczema as well as helping provide anti-aging elements.*

Last, but certainly not least, in the list of Mangosteen Powder’s benefits may be its weight loss potential.* This benefit may be what has contributed the most to Mangosteen’s growing popularity. In an animal study, mice that were fed the same high fat diet along with Mangosteen Powder gained significantly less weight than those that did not receive Mangosteen Powder. A similar study was conducted in human participants and the same results were found; weight gain was much lower in those who supplemented with Mangosteen Powder. These findings show that Mangosteen could be eventually considered in a weight loss regimen.*

Mangosteen tress can reach 20 to 82 feet in height.

How Does Mangosteen Work?

Plants, including fruits and vegetables, may have properties known as phytochemicals that can be produced to help give protection to the plant. We might benefit from these protective elements when we consume plants like fruits and vegetables, including Mangosteen.

The compounds contained in Mangosteen Powder known as tannins may give this fruit powder its powerful benefits. Tannins may be responsible for helping provide the antioxidant properties.* Another compound found in Mangosteen called xanthones may also contribute to the anti-inflammatory capabilities of Mangosteen Powder.*
