Mangosteen Powder - Powerful antioxidant
The Mangosteen tree (Garcinia mangostana) is native to the tropical climates of South-East Asia. In Thailand, Burma (now Myanmar) and throughout Indonesia, the Mangosteen fruit has long been respected for its medicinal properties. The Mangosteen fruit turns a deep purple when ripe and is made up of a rind, pulp and seed. It is the astringent rind that contains most of the nutrients, while tasty fruit or pulp is often enjoyed as a dessert in South East Asia.
Mangosteen (no relation to the mango fruit, by the way) has been used as a medicinal herb traditionally for centuries, applied topically to treat wounds and skin infections or taken orally as a remedy for diarrhea and dysentery. In the Caribbean, Mangosteen tea is still taken to counter fatigue and low energy. Mangosteen gets its potent antioxidant properties from xanthones; these naturally occurring chemical compounds, often known as "super antioxidants", are found in high concentrations in the rind of the Mangosteen fruit. In fact, Mangosteen contains more xanthones than any other fruit leading to its increasing reputation as a "super fruit".
Mangosteen also is a great source of naturally occuring Vitamin A, vitamin C, Calcium, and Magnesium.
