Try Mangosteen

The mangosteen fruit is exotic, delicious and packed full of xanthones and other phytonutrients that demonstrate these impressive health benefits:

·Maintain intestinal health
·Support the immune system
·Neutralize free radicals
·Support cartilage and joint function
·Promote a healthy seasonal respiratory function

Although the mangosteen has been touted for its splendid flavor, it has also been suggested that use of the whole mangosteen fruit can promote good health-wellness. In fact, the whole mangosteen fruit—especially the xanthone-packed rind—has been utilized to treat a variety of health conditions. In early medicine the mangosteen rind was sliced and dried, then ground to a powder and administered as an herbal preparation. The mangosteen rind was steeped in water overnight and taken as a tea. It was also made in to an ointment and applied externally as a lotion. It was through these popular uses that the benefits of mangosteen were passed down through history and several scientists and explorers took note.
