Good health after all, leads to a happy and productive life. Mangosteen is truly an amazing fruit that nature provides to us in terms of medicinal history that dates back for centuries, and we are just beginning to find out about it. Current research on xanthones suggests that they are beneficial in helping the human body fight off a multitude of disorders. Animals also equally benefit from Mangosteen. Garcinia Mangostana, the scientific name for Mangosteen has the lion's share of naturally occurring xanthones. Our awe and respect for this magnificent fruit naturally became the deciding factor in naming our companies respectively, Mangosteen Queen and Garcinia-Mangostana.com. The Garcinia mangostana tropical fruit from Asia comes from a tree that grows nearly twenty-three meters in height and can take up to ten years of cultivation to bear fruit. It has been used by tens of thousands of people for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. Chinese medical accounts mentions this exquisite fruit dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 A.D.-1644 A.D.) It is not only claimed by some to be the best tasting fruit in the world, but is also recommended in preventive maintenance of the body. Garcinia mangostana or Mangosteen as used interchangeably here for simplicity is rich in antioxidants, and contains forty-three of the possibly two hundred xanthones found in nature. Xanthones support and enhance our body's immune system. In India, Thailand, China, and other parts of Asia preparations made from the mangosteen's bitter but valuable rind are used as anti-microbial and anti-parasitic treatments for dysentery and other forms of infectious diarrhea. The mangosteen plant?s astringent qualities are also used in preventing dehydration and the loss of essential nutrients from gastrointestinal tract of diarrhea sufferers. In the United States, Garcinia mangostana is taken by mouth and is supposed to support microbiological balance, help the immune system, improve joint flexibility, and provide mental support. Some proponents claim that Mangosteen can help in tuberculosis and a host of other illnesses. It has been long recognized in Asia that the garcinia mangostana fruit along with its leaves and bark of the tree has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and is therefore effective in treating eczema, hyperkeratosis and related skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrhea. In the Philippines, and in areas where this magnificent and valuable fruit is grown, the mangosteen rind may be steeped in water to make tea, while others boil the leaves and bark of the tree to make a medicinal drink, or to mix with other herbs to apply to wounds. The roots may be boiled to make a drink for women with menstrual problems. In the Caribbean, a tea made from mangosteen, known as ?Eau de Creole?, is used as a tonic for fatigue and low energy states, a universal symptom experienced by millions of people around the world. Brazilians use a similar tea as a de-worming agent and digestive aid. In Venezuela, parasitic skin infections are treated with poultices of the mangosteen fruit rind while a fruit preparation to control fever is employed in the Philippines. Additional studies in Japan and India found that the mangosteen fruit possessed effective anti-inflammatory capabilities. It is also said that the xanthones found throughout Mangosteen have the ability to prevent atherosclerosis, which involve the hardening of the arteries. While the healing properties of Garcinia mangostana is known in many parts of the world for centuries, it is only recently that it is being discovered by North Americans. It is ironic that North America being the first to benefit from medical discoveries, will turn out to be one of the last in discovering Garcinia's phenomenal cure for a multitude of ailments. Fortunately, word about this fabulous fruit is spreading quickly via the internet, and Garcinia mangostana is becoming known in countries far removed from where it is grown. In Western Society, although currently there is no reliable evidence that mangosteen juice, puree, or bark is effective as a treatment for cancer in humans, its fruit has been shown to be rich in antioxidants. Very early studies in the lab suggest that Mangosteen may have promise as a treatment to be applied to the skin for acne. While there simply hasn?t been enough studies conducted on Garcinia mangostana that can conclusively assess its medical power, early small studies in the lab and on rats suggest that further research should be done to find out if it can help with cancer prevention in humans. Extracts of garcinia mangostana have shown in lab tests that they can stop certain bacteria and fungi from growing. One lab study suggested that mangosteen extract inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria. However, it has not been tested on people to find out if mangosteen helps acne in humans. In a lab dish, it also showed activity that slowed the growth of certain cancer cells. A small study on cancer inhibition in rats suggested that the rind of the mangosteen may reduce the risk of cancer cell growth in the bowel. Garcinia mangostana's cancer inhibitory effect has not been tested in humans. If there any possible problems or complications, no ill effects have been reported to date (http://www.cancer.org/docroot/ETO/content/ETO_5_3x_Mangosteen_Juice.asp?sitearea=ETO). Incidently, tests have been done on human breast cancer cell line where these investigations suggested that the methanolic extract from the pericarp of Garcinia mangostana had strong antiproliferation, potent antioxidation and induction of apoptosis. Thus, it indicates that the pericarp substance of the mangosteen can show different activities and has potential for cancer chemoprevention which were dose dependent as well as exposure time dependent (Journal of Ethno-Pharmacology: antiproliferation, antioxidation and induction of apoptosis by Garcinia mangostana (mangosteen) on SKBR3 human breast cancer cell line). As with all plants, allergies may be possible. Because of antioxidant effects, mangosteen supplements might interfere with radiation therapy or other forms of chemotherapy, possibly making these treatments less effective. While this is only a theory, people getting treatment for cancer should speak with their doctors before taking this supplement. Other interactions are not well described. Although many believe that mangosteen juice may aid in the maintenance of intestinal prosperity, create a stronger immune system, increase cartilage and joint function, neutralize toxins, and increase respiratory health, the FDA observed that the product was being promoted to treat illness for which it had not been proved safe and effective. Hence, the FDA sent a warning letter to one overzealous mangosteen vendor that the product was being illegally marketed (http://www.fda.gov/foi/warning_letters/archive/g6031d.htm). Garcinia mangostana is categorized as food and not a drug. The FDA therefore may never have to prove the efficacy of mangosteen juice. I myself have tried a mangosteen extract and was very pleased with the results. This happened at a time when I had pain on the underside of one leg deep inside the muscle slightly above the knee area. I had difficulty getting up when I squatted. Months went by without any improvement until one day I remembered learning about Mangosteen several months earlier at a house party and decided to try it. I was skeptical at first, but I had nothing to lose. I have always known about Mangosteen and was lucky to have eaten it many times on occasion. It is a rare and expensive fruit even in areas where it is grown. But I never gave thought to its medicinal qualities because I only ate the delicious pulp of the fruit itself, and people like me unaware of mangosteen's use threw away the bitter rind. Within a matter of about four hours after drinking a half a cup of a mangosteen extract mixed with local fruits which included pears and I think blueberries, I felt a click occur inside my pain afflicted leg. I then could literally feel the muscle in that leg relax very quickly, and the pain began to subside. Three days later I was completely cured. I have seen the same near miracle result to a friend that had a swollen hand which he could not move because of the pain. Ceasar's hand looked like it had some sort of an infection. The skin on his hand was so stretched from being swollen that I was afraid for him. He played it down, but deep inside I hoped that it was not the onset of Gangrene. He needed help quickly but may not seek medical attention for it. I decided to give him a free bottle of mangosteen. I had just purchased this only bottle from a specialty herb and fruit store in New York City. My wife had intended to sell it for a small profit, but I assured myself that she would understand. The following week I met him at a park where we usually meet and again the result on his problem hand was impressive. His hand was no longer swollen, and was able to move it normally with only a tinge of pain remaining. I had asked him if he had finished the mangosteen bottle, his reply was: "I Didn't Want to Drink All of it... I Wanted to Have Something Left Over for the Next Time". And I felt very happy for him. Named for the French priest and explorer Laurentiers Garcin (1673-1751), the Mangosteen is thought to have originated in Southeast Asia. Its scientific name is Garcinia mangostana and today this fruit tree is cultivated in the tropical regions of both the eastern and western hemispheres with commercial plantations in Thailand, India, Malaysia, and the Philippines. A number of other countries in both Asia and Central to South America are smaller producers of the fruit. Prized because of its excellent flavor, in Asia it is called ?the Queen of Fruits? and in the French Caribbean ?the Food of the Gods.? Garcinia mangostana belongs to the family Guttiferae which includes over 800 species of plants. Two relatives of the mangosteen, Hypericum perforatum (St. John?s wort) and Garcinia cambogia have already become well known as medicinal plants. What is amazing is that the mangosteen (no connection with the mango) has never been utilized for its multiple health benefits in North America or Europe despite history and popularity as a folk remedy in Asia, Africa, and South America. Until recently, Mangosteen has been one of nature?s best-kept secrets. Even more amazing is that many people that live in areas where Garcinia mangostana is grown are also unaware or has only recently known about its inherent healing capability. From the time a seed is planted, a mangosteen tree takes from 7 to 10 years to yield fruit. Although Garcinia mangostana is one of the slowest growing of the tropical fruit trees, it can reach 75 feet in height when fully matured. Joseph Routis, CEO
