Superfood: mangosteen

  1. Sometimes you come across a product on the internet or in the vitamin shop that stimulates your curiosity. Such a product is mangosteen. It is neither a mango nor a stone, but a fruit that has been used as food and medicine in Southeast Asia for hundreds of years. It is also increasing in popularity with us. Justly?

  1. In the tropical rainforests of Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and in some parts of China a tree grows that is not well known to us in the West. It's the mangosteen tree (Garcinia Mangostana). The mangosteen tree grows to a height of about 20 to 80 meters and produces a special fruit twice a year: mangosteen, also called mangosteen or mangosteen. In these areas, the fruit has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments such as diarrhea, malaria, inflammation, skin conditions, fatigue and fever.

Thick skin

  1. The name suggests that the fruit is related to the mango, but that is not the case. He also looks very different. The fruit is about the size of a tomato and has a thick purple skin. So thick that about half of the fruit consists of peel. The pulp is white and shaped like tangerine wedges. The structure resembles that of a lychee. Hardly any fresh mangostones are available in the Netherlands, because they have to be eaten quickly once they are off the tree. We have to make do with mangosteen juice and mangosteen capsules. If they are available fresh, they are also quite expensive. A mangosteen then costs more than two euros.

Xanthones

  1. What is so special about the mangosteen? Those are the xanthones. Xanthones are powerful antioxidants that are said to have anti-inflammatory properties. The mangosteen contains more than 40 of these active nutritional components, especially in the thick skin. Superlatives are flying around your ears when it comes to xanthones. They would, among other things: Promote healthy breathing. Help maintain healthy digestion. Help relax the muscles. Help strengthen the immune system. Neutralize free radicals.

Innocent?

  1. Mangosteen is not entirely uncontroversial. In addition to the above claims, reference is made to action against diabetes, osteoarthritis and even cancer. There is a lot of scientific research on various sites, but that is difficult to estimate. Almost all the research that has been done has been done on mice and rats. More double-blind research on humans is needed to really be able to say something about the effect. In its pure form it is of course just fruit and therefore healthy in any case. There are no known side effects of mangosteen. With Mangosteen it is actually just like with all kinds of other superfoods. You should try it for yourself for some time to see if it works for you.
