Mangosteen Extract - from "Queen of Fruits"
Mangosteen Fruits, a tropical fruit famous as the "Queen of Fruits", is one of the most nutrient-rich plant foods on Earth, in which containing the compounds called Xanthones with biological active plant phenols structurally similar to flavonoids, which is thought to have antioxidant properties; which also a rich source of other bioactive molecules including flavenoids, benzophenones, lactones, phenolic acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and also contain such nutrients as well as zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, etc.
The Xanthones have been known as unique, biologically active group of molecules processing a six-carbon conjugated ring structure with multiple double carbon bonds, in Mangosteen including: 1,6-dihydroxy-3-methoxy-2-(3-methyl-2-butenyl) xanthone, 1,5,8-trihydroxy-3-methoxy-2-(3-methyl-2-butenyl) xanthone, maclurin, 1,3,6,7-tetrahydroxy xanthone, 1,3,6,7-tetrahydroxy xanthone-O-.beta.-D-glucoside, chrysanthemin, cyaniding-3-O-.beta.-D-sophoroside, 8-deoxygartanin, 1,5-dihydroxy-2-isopentenyl-3-methoxy xanthone, 1,7-dihydroxy-2-isopentenyl-3-methoxy xanthone, 5,9-dihydroxy-8-methoxy-2,2-dimethyl-7-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)2(H), 6(H)-pyrano-(3,2,6)-xanthen-6-one, fructose, garcinone A,B,C, D and E, gartanin, glucose, cis-hex-3-enyl acetate, 3-isomangostin, 3-isomangostin hydrate, 1-isomangostin, 1-isomangostin hydrate, kolanone, mangostin, beta.-mangostin, alpha.-mangostin, mangostin-3,6-di-O-gulcoside, normangostin, sucrose, tannins, BR-xanthone-A, BR-xanthone-B, calabaxanthone demethylcalabaxanthone,2-(.gamma.,.gamma.-dimethylallyl)-1,7-dihydroxy-3-m ethoxyxanthone, 2,8-bis-(.gamma.,.gamma.-dimethylallyl)-1,3,7-trihydroxyxanthone, 1,3,5,8-tetrahydroxy-2,4-diprenylxanthone, and mangostanol.
Since the first scientific article on the mangosteen's function properties was written by Jaques Garcin in 1697, researches in 11 different countries investigating Mangosteen fruits for its function properties have produced over 50 published scientific papers. In most instances, the research was initiated to elucidate the mechanisms behind the mangosteen for it's new function claims:
Antioxidant protection against free radicals Maintains immune system health Promotes joint flexibility Provides positive mental support Reduces allergies Reduces joint inflammation Prevents cancer Pain control -sciatica and radicular pain syndromes
