Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana): Named after the French priest and explorer, Laurentiers Garcin, the Garcinia Mangostana or Mangosteen is thought to have originated in Southeast Asia. Evidence shows that mangosteen reduces inflammation in the musculoskeletal system, its powerful antioxidant properties benefit the cardiovascular system and its anti-viral, anti-parasitic and antifungal properties aid the immune system. The main active compounds in mangosteen are called xanthones, a group of compounds that have powerful antioxidant, anti-bacerial, antifungal, anti-tumor activity. Lab (animal) tests show, so far, that mangosteen compounds have activity against several cancer cell lines including breast, liver and leukemia. The rind or”pericarp” contains the active xanthone compounds. Xanthone compounds include mangostin, mangostenol, mangostenone A, mangostenone B, trapezifolexanthone, tovophyllin B, alpha and beta-mangostins, garcinone B, mangostinone, and the flavonoid epicatechin.
