Scientific Study of Mangosteen

mangosteen-juice-glassThis is a compilation of scientific studies found at the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health (NIH). These studies illustrate how the Xanthones found in the mangosteen fruit could greatly impact health. Hundreds of scientific research papers can be found, but these should be enough to capture your attention.

This studies demonstrate how the mangosteen could play a significant role in the treatment of inflammatory conditions, cancer of all types, heart disease, allergy/asthma, tuberculosis, central nervous system conditions, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Additional studies show the Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Fungal and Anti-Viral properties of the mangosteen. At the center of attention are the biologically active compounds found in the mangosteen called Xanthones

Within the last 5 years, the Xanthones have been the focus of much of the scientific research. With over 200 Xanthones identified in nature, so far 43 Xanthones are identified in the mangosteen fruit. The mangosteen is simply the most abundant source of Xanthones on earth. Continued study is required as only 6 of the 43 Xanthones found in the mangosteen fruit, have been researched.

However, their potent activity and broad-ranging indications for use may soon reveal the mangosteen’s Xanthones to be one of the all-time greatest medical discoveries.

The Xanthones from the mangosteen have been shown in laboratory studies to be powerful Antioxidants, Anti-Inflammatories and to have other special properties. However, laboratory results do not guarantee that the same will happen in the human body. Mangosteen is a nutritious fruit not a drug, and no therapeutic claims are made for this product.
