Mangosteen Merits Consideraton



There is a great deal of discussion about newest miracle fruit mangosteen. It is one of the latest to
claim therapeutic benefits. We know a great deal about the fruit because mangosteen research
has been done that provides all types of theories that mangosteen has the ability to heal many
diseases and in fact increase our lifespan.

Mangosteen has been grown and used in Asia for centuries, but isn't easily cultivated in the
Western world. It should never be confused with the mango which is a different fruit. These purple
fruits are where the interest is focused.

The fruit has two parts: a thick, purplish hull and a soft, white inner fruit. The inner fruit is prized
for its delicate flavor similar to pineapple or peach combo. But it's the hull that has the most health
benefits. The hull is usually a more bitter and you'll find that the center is where the purple juice is
stored.

Mangosteen is known for having high density xanthones. Xanthones are nutrients that are
powerful antioxidants. These have some highest score on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance
Capcity, (ORAC) scale. Antioxidants repair cell damage and improve cell function. Xanthones
work on all of our body systems. They are good for brain function, heart and lung function, immune
system function, muscle and joint function and digestive function.

The fruit is claimed to have a potential to support the immune system and combat various
diseases because it will make the body stronger to fight any infection that comes its way.
However, mangosteen fruit is never a medicine for all diseases. What it can do is improve your
immune system, which in the end will make your body stronger and healthier.

Preliminary studies have indicated that benefits of mangosteen promoted by many people are in
fact really helpful. These studies show that mangosteen has both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
properties and thus it can be used for these purposes when someone contracts an infection.

When you contract a virus like the common cold, you can treat it by simply waiting for your body to
remove the virus or usually we can treat the symptoms, but not the underlying virus itself.
Therefore, it is essential to remember that mangosteen has anti-viral properties as well.

One major benefit of mangosteen is the antioxidants contained in the fruit, which is well-known for
slowing the aging process. In addition, the fruit is also rich with natural supplements like fiber,
potassium, calcium, Vitamin B1 and B2, Vitamin C, and iron to name a few.

One of the benefits that mangosteen is said to contribute towards is the reduction of hives on
people who have strong allergies. Many people who have tried fruit will tell you that their allergies
have become less and less frequent ever since they started eating mangosteen.

    There have been many claims on the web about the positive benefit mangosteen has on
fighting Cancer. Researchers still aren't 100% sure about is mangosteen's potential to reduce
getting cancer. There are just 29 articles on the topic of mangosteen in PubMed, which is a library
of 14+ million citations. Only four of these studies relate to mangosteen and cancer. In one test
tube experiment it was shown that a chemical compound found in mangosteen kills cancer cells as
effectively as many chemotherapeutic drugs.
    For those of us who believe in plants rather than chemical drugs, manngosteen joins a long list
natural compounds that might show promise in defeating cancer. Many lifetime consumers of
mangosteen will support the argument that mangosteen does reduce the likelihood of getting
cancer later in life.

One other supposed benefit is mangosteen's potential to improve respiratory infections such as
asthma. This is probably one of the biggest reasons why people in the Western world have
become so fanatical about mangosteen.

Finally the last benefit that mangosteen contributes is its ability to improve skin strenth. You can
actually get mangosteen oitment which is reasonably cheap compared to the fruit that health to
heal skin marks and sores.

It's important to understand that all these claims haven't been proven; the research is still
preliminary. This fruit may or may not be the cure for the common cold and cancer. However,
because it definitely has the health benefits of high concentrations of antioxidants, it could make
you feel better and healthier. And like most natural substances, mangosteen does not cure
anything but, simply gives your body more of the nutrition it needs to cure itself.

The best way is to buy mangosteen fruit from its original location. Sometimes, the fruit is shipped
to some stores, but unfortunately, mangosteen fruit is susceptible about shipping condition. If you
want to enjoy the benefits of this fruit, you should consider drinking its juice. You will obtain more
benefits from this juice because it comes from the whole fruit, not only the central part.

If you are interested in trying mangosteen, the easiest way is to do it online. There are many
online distributors of mangosteen juice and supplements. You can also consume mangosteen fruit
dried form. No matter which way that you choose, you will experience these benefits in no time.
