Mangosteen is an amazing tropical fruit, believed to have been originated in Indonesia and is widely available in several South East Asian and Africa regions. One of the planet’s most powerful superfruits has been used to naturally treat a wide variety of health concerns for centuries. Its white, soft and juicy flesh is sweet and aromatic. It contains a potent concentration of Xanthones, one of the best anti-oxidants ever discovered. It has natural antibacterial properties and antimicrobial compounds, which are highly effective in treating many common skin problems like acne, skin blemishes or oily skin. They can be cured simply by the consumption of this fruit ( I eat 3 mangosteens every day while in Bali). Research shows that this tropical fruit can boost the immune system, decrease inflammation and even fight cancer. Benefits also include being high in fiber yet low in calories, as well as having a good serving of vitamin C. If the fresh fruit is not available for you can easily buy it in capsules, tablets, oils or beverages.
