Our Raw Organic Mangosteen Powder, which includes the outer rind/pericarp is a natural source of powerful antioxidants, antibiotic compounds and may help to support a healthy inflammation response. Scientific research shows that Mangosteen contains a class of naturally occurring polyphenol compounds known as xanthones. These xanthones are found in the ripe dark purple rind (called pericarp) of the fruit. The rind of partially ripe Mangosteen fruit yields a polyhydroxy-xanthone derivative termed mangostin, also beta-mangostin. Fully ripe fruits contains the xanthones gartanin, beta-disoxygartanin and normangostin.

According to research reported in professional journals such as Free Radical Research and the Journal of Pharmacology, these amazing Xanthones may have a remarkably beneficial effects in supporting cardiovascular health. They also have properties which help to support the body's ability to protect against cellular damage by free radicals and support a healthy aging process. Xanthones also demonstrate the most powerful antioxidative properties found in nature as well as possibly supporting a healthy immune system and inflammation response.

For hundreds of years the people of Southeast Asia have traditionally used the Mangosteen, especially the rind (called the pericarp) to possibly support the body's ability to ward off infections, support a healthy pain response and support a healthy immune response. The pericarp can also be made into an ointment and applied to support healthy skin.

Our whole fruit Raw Organic Mangosteen Powder is non-GMO and made from both the fruit and the pericarp so it provides all the benefits this amazing fruit has to offer.
