The Mangosteen Fruit

mangosteenThe mangosteen fruit, or Queen of Fruits as labeled by Queen Victoria, is native to extreme tropical regions South Ease Asia. The mangosteen fruit is about the size of a tangerine and has a dark purple peel, or rind, that surrounds between 4 to 8 white fleshy pulp segments.

The Mangosteen Pulp

The pulp of the mangosteen is where the amazing taste of the mangosteen comes from. These pulp segments have been said to taste something like a strawberry and orange mix. It's this amazing taste that has made the mangosteen fruit the official fruit of Thailand.

The Mangosteen Rind

The true power of the mangosteen fruit is not that amazing tasting pulp, but the bitter and tart tasting pericarp or rind of the fruit. It's this half inch thick peel that contains the 40+ plus known Xanthones. It is these Xanthones that give the mangosteen fruit all its amazing health benefits.

Xanthones

The effects of the Xanthones contained in the mangosteen fruit have been studied for over 25 years in laboratories and universities around the world. Some of the findings are …

  • Suppression of acute and chronic inflammation and edema in rats
  • Inhibition of arthritis in rats
  • Growth inhibitory effects in human leukemia cells

  • Laboratory tests showed that the Xanthones in Mangosteen killed breast cancer cells in vitro
  • Gamma-mangostin, a xanthone derivative from mangosteen, directly inhibits COX activity

The above list is not nearly a complete account of the Xanthones found in the mangosteen fruit. In Fact to date only about 12 of the 40 known Xanthones found in the Mangosteen have been studied in laboratory tests.
