Mangosteen has two important components: (1) The beneficial antioxidants and (2) the medicinal properties of Xanthones. Xanthones are a unique biologically “active” compound. Active means they couple with other molecules and become very beneficial to the systems of the body. Xanthones are anti-depressant, anti-diabetic, anti-leukemic, anti-microbial (fungus and bacteria) and anti-viral.
Xanthones enter the cell wall with antioxidants and can even kill intracell bacteria before it has a chance to mess with the cell’s DNA. Xanthones are never found alone, but in mixed molecules. Of the 200 known Xanthones, 24 are found in the pericarp of the mangosteen fruit. No other fruit or single food source has the quantity.
