Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana Linn.) is a tropical evergreen fruit tree of the family Guttiferae, with deep reddish purple fruit, cultivated in Southeast Asian countries. In
Mangosteen rind contains tannins (polyphenols) and xanthones i.e. alpha-, beta- and gamma-mangostins. Alpha-mangostin is a major component,which possess anti-inflammatory and antibacterial activities against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, S. epidermidis, and Propionibacterium acne ,which is the critical eticologic agent in acne. It was also reported to inhibit alveolar duct formation in a mouse mammary organ culture model and to suppress the carcinogen induced formation of aberrant crypt foci in a short-term colon carcinogenesis model.

Support microbiological balance
Help the immune system
Improve joint flexibility
Provide mental support
Mangosteen is touted for its antioxidants, especially xanthones (a type of chemical in certain plants). Independent scientific research studies showed that Mangosteen contains more than 40 xanthones (Alpha-mangostin is a major component),- roughly 20% of about 200 xanthones found in nature. The Mangosteen is the single, most abundant source of xanthones known to science. A number of these xanthones were demonstrated in scientific studies to be even more potent antioxidant than vitamins C and E, two of the most powerful antioxidants found in food. They were also shown in scientific and pharmacological studies to possess a variety of immune-system-boosting and healing properties, such as supporting microbiological balance, helping the immune system, improving joint flexibility, and providing mental support. Some proponents claim that it can help diarrhea, infections, tuberculosis, cancer, and a host of other illnesses.
Are there any possible problems or complications? No ill effects have been reported to date. Alpha-mangostin and common Mangosteen Rind or Fruit Extract are safe. But relying on this type of treatment alone, and avoiding conventional medical care, may have serious health consequences.
• The typical dose is 300-900mg (90% alpha-mangostin) per day (usually in 2-3 doses throughout the day).
• Consult physicians for different condition specifics.

They are all very good powder extracts, strictly standardized, of natural red-biege color (from fresh fruit) or brown to bright light yellow color (from dry fruit pericarp), preserving the natural fine scent and taste of the plant. The extracts from fresh fruit have ideal water solubility and with the least sediments and almost no suspended substance in their solvents, which are suitable for drink use. The extracts from dry fruit pericarp is of high contents of alpha-, beta-, garma-mangostin, the active ingredients, which are for pharmaceuticals or health products use.
