Known as the Queen of fruits, Mangosteen contains more Xanthones (polyphenolic compounds that take place naturally in various organic materials) than any other fruit and vegetable. Scientists around the world discovered numerous medical properties from Xanthones in mangosteen as follows:

Anti-Oxidant Properties

Xanthones in Mangosteen are one of the most effective anti-oxidants found in nature. Academic research worldwide indicate that Xanthones in Mangosteen, have the most strength of anti-oxidants, 20-30 times better than any other fruit or vegetable. Phytonutrient which has a high Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) property, can reduce all damages from free radicals which are the causes of cancer, heart diseases and ageing.

Anti-Microbial Properties

Xanthones in Mangosteen have anti-bacterial properties for both gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Furthermore, they have rich properties in inhibiting the increasing of outer cell viruses which cannot be affected even by antibiotics.

Relieve Allergy Properties

Based on Academic Research, Xanthones are capable of inhibiting histamine pathways which are the cause of human allergies and could encourage the respiratory system to perform more effectively (Asthma, Excema).

Reduce Oxidized LDL Cholesterol

Xanthones can help the human body to decrease the absorption of cholesterol, thus preventing cardiovascular diseases and certain heart illnesses.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Xanthones can also help relieve Rheumatism found mostly in the elderly. Xanthones inhibit the Cyclo-Oxygenase 1 (Cox-1) and Cyclo-Oxygenase 2 (Cox-2) enzymes activities, which are the primary cause of human inflammatory pathways. Xanthones also help increase human joint elasticity (Arthritis, Acne).

Disclaimer: The Xanthones from the mangosteen have been shown in laboratory studies to be powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and to have other special properties. However, laboratory results do not guarantee that the same will happen in

the human body. Mangosteen is a nutritious fruit not a drug, and no therapeutic claims are made for this product.

ARTHRITIS PAIN DIMINISHES by James Graham, M.D. Cynecologic Oncologist

I reached a point in my life where I was going to have to give up my career as a cancer surgeon. I had developed severe arthritis primarily in my knee and ankle joints. After undergoing arthroscopic surgery I was told that I had lost most of the cartilage in my knee joints. I was walking "bone on bone." I was in severe pain and began using a number of traditional western medications, including COX-2 inhibitors. After three months, I developed a gastric ulcer and my hemoglobin dropped to a level of six, thus requiring admission to the Intensive Care unit, endoscopic surgery and transfusion. One of my patients with ovarian cancer as being treated with chemotherapy and was doing extremely well. She was also drinking mangosteen juice. She told me to drink three onces a day. After three days, I could

honestly feel a difference. I was at a point that pain would wake me up as I rolled over in bet at night. Now I sleep through the night and rather than waking up in the morning with stiff joints, I get out of bed and feel great. I have since canceled my disability application and now look forward to many more years of treating cancer patients. Try it! 2,3,4,8,12
