Purple mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), simply known as the mangosteen, is an evergreen tropical plant that
produces an edible fruit that is known to have many nutritional benefits. The plant is native to Thailand and the Southeast Asian islands. Scientists are not absolutely certain of its origin because of widespread cultivation in prehistoric times.
Today it is grown mainly in Australia, Southeast Asia, southwest India, and tropical locations such as Florida in the US, Colombia, and Puerto Rico.
The tree grows from 6 to 25 metres tall. The mangosteen’s fruit is fibrous, sweet, tangy, and juicy, similar to citrus fruits. When it is ripe, it has a deep reddish-purple coloured skin that is inedible. Its seeds are almond-shaped and are also inedible. The fruit is highly sought after because of the fragrant edible flesh that surrounds the seeds, which is extremely healthy.
Known in South-East Asia as the “Queen of Fruit”, it is often paired with the “King of Fruit” durian. This pairing in Chinese therapy is because, mangosteen is considered “cooling”, as a counterbalance to the “heaty” durian. There is a legend that Queen Victoria offering a reward of 100 pounds to someone who could provide a fresh mangosteen fruit tree.
Studies, performed by the Agricultural Research Service, Human Nutrition Centre for The Aging, USA, concluded that foods scoring high in ORAC may protect cells from oxidative damage. ARC’s Administrator, Floyd Horn stated, “Many people may be able to reduce their risk of disease by simply adding ORAC foods into their diets”. The study concluded, “Eating ORAC foods raised the antioxidant power of the human blood by 10-25%.” Studies show the average person consumes only 1,200 ORAC units daily.
The USDA recommends 3,000-5,000 units of ORAC daily. This equates to 3-5 servings of vegetables per day, however, this may not be enough. Over-processing of foods, aggressive farming practices (chemicals), deplete the nutrient levels of soil, and the food grown in it. Aficionados in fruit and vegetables, often result in inadequate ORAC levels.
Supplementing with Vitalxan capsules (3365 gm) ORAC solves the issue.
