Many tropical plants have interesting biological activities and in Mangosteen the key ingredients under investigation are the unique Xanthones and Mangostins.

Garcinia mangosutana Linn (GML) belongs to the family of Guttiferae and is named "The Queen of Fruits". It is cultivated only in the very tropical rainforests of some Southeast Asian nations. People in these countries have used the pericarp (peel, rind, hull or ripe) of GML as a traditional medicine for centuries. The pericarp of GML is a source of xanthones and other bioactive substances. Prenylated xanthones isolated from GML have been extensively studied; some members of these compounds possess antioxidant, anti-tumoral, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. While further studies are underway to determine if these properties have pharmaceutical application, Mangosteen is becoming ever more popular as a food and dietary supplement and contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including Calcium, Iron and Vitamin C.

Matakana SuperFoods’ Mangosteen 10:1 Concentrate Powder is derived from the whole pericarp and retains all of the beneficial and health-supporting elements Mangosteen has to offer.

We suggest you add a teaspoon of Mangosteen powder to your green drink, smoothie, cereal or fruit juice to support your general health and wellbeing. The bioactives in Mangosteen have a wide range of health benefits including support for healthy and clear skin particularly for those skin-types prone to breakouts. In addition the anti-infectives within Mangosteen help support the body’s defences against infection as well as overall immune and cellular function.
