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:
Xanthones in Mangosteen are one of the most effective anti-oxidants found in nature. Research worldwide indicates that Xanthones in Mangosteen, have the most strength of antioxidants, 20-30 times better than any other fruit or vegetable.
Scientists who studied the properties of Xanthones in Mangosteen found that they “exhibited potent free-radical scavenging activity”. Xanthones help absorb free radicals and stop cellular damage that leads to many types of diseases.
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. Antioxidants, like the Xanthones found in the Mangosteen, can prevent mutation and the activation of cancer genes.
Scientists claim that two of the Mangosteen Xanthones, alpha-mangostin and gamma-mangostin, proved to be much stronger antioxidants than others that are known for their antioxidant capabilities. Gamma-mangostin, for example, was shown to have more potent antioxidant activity than even vitamin E, one of nature’s most potent antioxidants.
There are other powerful antioxidants in this amazing fruit. Catechins were discovered to be five times more potent than vitamin C. The Quinones in the Mangosteen, known for their anti-bacterial properties, are also strong oxidants.
Stilbenes, known to posses potent anti-fungal properties, also are strong antioxidants. And polyphenols were found to be far more potent as antioxidants than vitamin E. The presence of all these antioxidants in Mangosteen makes it a very potent immune-system booster that promotes good health and wellness.
Xanthones in Mangosteen have anti-bacterial properties for both gram positive and gram negative bacteria. Studies indicates that the antimycobacterial activity of alpha-mangostin, beta-mangostin and garcinone B and found that they possess strong inhibitory effects against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. 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. Mangosteen appears to work on sinus problems due to its strong antibacterial and antiviral properties. When someone ingests this fruit, these properties work inside the body to kill the bacteria and viruses that cause sinus problems. Many people find that they get good results using mangosteen for sinus problems by drinking 30ml to 60ml of Naturexan Gold each day. For acute sinus problems, one can take the recommended dosage daily until symptoms are relieved. For chronic problems, it is suggested to take the recommended daily dose indefinitely. The antioxidants in the fruit may eventually cause your immune system to strengthen to the point that you can be free of sinus problems even if you’re not taking it.
Reduce Oxidized LDL Cholesterol
Xanthones can help the human body to decrease the absorption of cholesterol, thus preventing cardiovascular diseases and certain heart illnesses. There are two types of cholesterol, HDL and LDL, there is really only one you need to worry about—LDL. HD and LD stand for high density and low density, respectively. The L is both stands for lipoprotein which is another way to classify cholesterol. LDL is “bad” because it’s lower density means it tends to stick to things and build up. The Xanthones in our Naturexan Gold can prevent LDL plaques from building up; subsequently, this reduces or eliminates the harmful effects of too much LDL. Mangosteen fruit also contains high levels of magnesium. Magnesium helps control the electrical function of the heart, keeping the heart rate and blood pressure under control and promoting a regular heart beat. Vitally important for people with minor symptoms concerning their circulatory systems.
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. Inflammation is important in helping the body to heal, but it can also cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. Inflammation in the human body has been linked to many types of serious diseases e.g. Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s, Colon Caner, Breast Cancer, Uterine Cancer, Osteoporosis and many more. Mangosteen’s health-giving Xanthones reduce inflammation and pain, and each of the trillions of cells in the human body will be positively affected in a powerful way by these natural healing compounds. Many respiratory issues are caused by inflammation within the passageways of the lungs, reducing that inflammation can open up the airways and allow normal breathing. Therefore, mangosteen fruit may help anyone who suffers from various breathing problems. Moreover, preventing inflammation may help people who have mobility issues due to swelling and soreness of the joints to feel better and be able to move more freely.
The fibre that naturally exists in the Mangosteen fruit can assist sufferers from digestive problems to better regulate their digestive systems. The result is increased health throughout the body as many digestive issues negatively affect other areas of the body which may lead to other health problems.
Maintaining a Healthy Weight
Mangosteen is a low-calorie fruit high in vitamins which aids in the metabolism. This means the potential for a leaner and healthier body, as well as having increased energy.
Mangosteen promotes weight loss through its natural appetite suppressant property. It promotes synthesis of glycogen in the body. When adequate levels of glycogen are produced and stored in the body, the brain receives a signal, which in turn suppresses the appetite. Mangosteen increase metabolism in the body and enhance lipid breakdown. Studies have established the fact that Mangosteen speeds up fat-burning in the body.
Mangosteen is also enriched with niacin, folate, thiamine, manganese, potassium, magnesium, and Vitamin C. High content of Xanthones, which have antioxidant properties protects the body against harmful effects of free radicals, supports the immune system, and improves digestion. A strong immune system improves the overall health of a person. Mangosteen speeds up the metabolic rate due to it’s high fibre content and makes digestion more effective, thereby enhancing absorption of nutrients.
Mangosteen acts as a natural blood thinner. It means that if a person is on “blood thinners” like Warfarin, we suggest that you DO NOT use Mangosteen in conjunction with the prescribes medication. Consult your doctor before proceeding with Naturexan Gold.
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.
