What is Mangosteen?

Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia, often referred to as the "queen of fruits." It has a thick, purple rind and juicy, fragrant white flesh divided into segments. The taste of mangosteen is sweet and tangy, with a hint of citrus and peach.

Health Benefits of Mangosteen

  1. Rich in Nutrients: Mangosteen is a good source of vitamins C and B, fiber, and minerals like manganese and magnesium.
  2. Antioxidant Properties: Contains powerful antioxidants called xanthones, which help fight free radicals and protect against oxidative stress.
  3. Anti-inflammatory: Xanthones also have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body.
  4. Immune Boost: High vitamin C content helps boost the immune system.
  5. Digestive Health: Fiber aids in digestion and helps prevent constipation.
  6. Heart Health: The antioxidants in mangosteen support cardiovascular health by improving blood flow and reducing cholesterol levels.
  7. Skin Health: The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties can promote healthy skin and help treat skin conditions.
