Mangosteen, the wonder fruit

No, this isn't some exotic variety of mango. Native to Indonesia, Mangosteen is sweet and tangy, juicy, and somewhat fibrous, with an inedible, reddish purple rind.

Researchers often call it a wonder fruit due to its innumerable healing properties...

- Mangosteen contains more than 40 biologically-active, natural chemical compounds called Xanthones - powerful antioxidants and immune system boosters. Alpha-mangosteen, for example, is a very potent antioxidant. Gamma-mangosteen is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Garcinone E is a strong anti-tumour agent.

- Scientists have found that the fruit is helpful in preventing and possibly even stopping a wide range of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, and other chronic diseases.

- Mangosteen also contains Polysaccharides. This is a highly potent anti-cancer and anti-bacterial plant compound. They help block a mutated cell's ability to stick to healthy cells to help stop the spread of cancer, and are specially effective against intracellular bacteria.
