Mangosteen the Xanthone Fruit!
In the exotic region of Thailand the Mangosteen grows abundantly. Mangosteen should not be confused with the mango, an entirely different plant. It is part of a group known as the Guttiferae, a family of mainly tropical trees and shrubs that secrete an acrid yellow resinous juice. Mangosteen's scientific designation is Garcinia Mangostana.
Xanthones (pronounced zan-thone) are abundantly found in Mangosteen fruit. Consisting of a smooth dark outer skin and snow-white fleshy interior pulp, the Mangosteen fruit's xanthone content is of the highest levels researchers have found.
Xanthones by definition are biologically active plant phenols that possess a high degree of medicinal properties. Garcinia Mangostana L. or the Mangosteen tree, is a natural source of dietary xanthones that offer a wide range of health benefits.Άχ
