Mangosteen is known as the queen of fruits. It has been grown and cultivated throughout Southeast Asia. It has been long recognized for its healing properties and health benefits. So how come most people in the U.S. haven’t even heard of the fruit, let alone what it tastes like? We need to bring mangosteen and start educating people on this wonderful little fruit.
First off, mangosteen is packed with essential nutrients like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and more. It’s also rich in fiber, energy, water, protein, and carbohydrates. Additionally, mangosteen contains every vitamin under the sun that’s necessary for maintaining good health. These vitamins include vitamin B6 and B12, vitamin C, and vitamin A.
The fleshy part of the mangosteen known as the pericarp contains xanthones which have anti-cancer properties as well as anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Research found that xanthones stunt cancer cell growth in the colon. It’s hopeful that future research will yield the development of xanthones as agents to prevent cancer.
From boosting your immune system to reducing the risk of skin inflammation from conditions like eczema and aging, mangosteen does it all. Do you want powerful antioxidants? Eat mangosteen. Do you want a speedy recovery? Eat mangosteen. Having stomach issues? Guess what? Eat mangosteen. Anything that you want cured, eat mangosteen.
