A co-worker of mine brought in a mangosteen supplement drink and she was selling it for $30 (her price) for a 25 fl oz bottle. I thought to myself, holy smokes! Who in the world would buy that? What is mangosteen?
She gave me some useful information and also these 22 reasons why everyone should be drinking mangosteen juice:
1. Prevents hardening of the arteries
2. Protects the heart muscle
3. Anti-Parkinson, anti-Alzheimer and other forms of dementia
5. Prevents and arrest fungus
6. Prevents bacterial infections
7. Viral fighters and prevention of infections
8. Prevents gum disease
10. Lowers fevers
11. Eye care-prevents glaucoma and cataracts
12. Pan systemic - a synergistic effect on the whole body
13. Energy boosters - anti-fatigue
15. Weight loss (I'll drink to this!)
16. Lowers blood fat (what the heck, I didn't know there is fat in our blood!)
17. Anti-tumour benefits
18. Cancer: Mangosteen helps in the prevention of cancer with its powerful antioxidants.
19. Lowers blood pressure
20. Numerous references to "Immunostimulants"
21. Blood sugar lowering
22. It tastes good
Upon further research, the mangosteen (Garcinia Mangostana) is a tropical evergreen tree, believed to have originated in the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas. The tree grows from 7 to 25 meters tall. The edible fruit is deep reddish purple when ripe. In Asia, the mangosteen fruit is known as the "Queen of Fruits," while the durian (Durio spp.) is known as the "King of Fruits." It is closely related to other edible tropical fruits such as button mangosteen and lemon drop mangosteen.
The outer shell of the fruit is rather hard, typically 4-6 cm in diameter. Cutting through the shell, one finds a white, fleshy fruit 3-5 cm in diameter. Depending on the size and ripeness, there may or may not be pits in the segments of the fruit. The number of fruit pods is directly related to the number of petals on the bottom of the shell. On average a mangosteen has 5 fruits (round up figure).
I was treated to a lot of exotic fruit while visiting Singapore, including the 'King Of Fruits' - durian (which in my own humble opinion tastes as bad as it smells) as well as the 'Queen of Fruits', mangosteen.
Many Countries are not fortunate enough to have this amazing fruit growing in their climates, so it is worth investing in the next best thing: capsules or mangosteen juice - if you can get your hands on it.
