Pure Rich Pericarp Mangosteen


One of the newest, hottest topics in health food supplements today is mangosteen! The whole fruit of a mangosteen contains compounds called xanthones: naturally occurring, high-potency antioxidants found primarily in the peel/hull of the fruit. Mangosteen has been revered for centuries as "Asia's Queen of Fruits". Of course, you don't need to take our word for it.

Research scientists are now discovering that there is valid science behind the folk medicine traditions and the answer seems to be in the mangosteen's compounds called xanthones. There have been 43 xanthones discovered in the fruit thus far (mostly in the rind); some unique only to the mangosteen. Xanthones are potent anti-oxidants and are used for their antitoxic benefits; they have been found to have potent anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-tumor and antifungal properties. The mangosteen is one of nature's only readily available sources of xanthones known thus far.

Additionally, mangosteen was used traditionally for its anti-parasitic effects: Malaria, amoebic dysentery and syphilis are caused by parasites. Asian healers have used mangosteen for centuries to deal with those illnesses. In South America, mangosteen is also used to cure intestinal worm infestations. Laboratory research to confirm these practices, however, is not yet available at this time.

Guidelines for Taking Mangosteen

If one is seeking therapeutic results from mangosteen, he or she must commit for a period of three months of use. If you are on prescribed medications consult your physician before consuming mangosteen supplements. We also recommend that you take your prescribed medication at least 45 minutes before or after consuming your mangosteen supplements.

Minor to Mild Condition/Illness (two capsules - two to three times a day): With this regimen, 1 bottle of capsules will last 20 days. If you are currently on doctor prescribed medication or addressing conditions such as mild arthritis, carpal tunnel or other joint, bone or body pain; cardiovascular health, diabetes or just want to lose weight then you will want to consume two capsules two to three times a day.

Severe to Chronic Condition/Illness (two to three capsules three to four times a day): With this regimen, 1 bottle of capsules will last 15 days. If you are currently under continuous doctor or specialist supervision, consume large amounts of prescription medication or have been dealing with your medical issue for longer than one year then you will want to consume two to three capsules three to four times a day.

Protocol for Diabetics and Dieters: It is important to note that you should consume the same number of capsules, based on your health category (as above), but do so 30 to 45 minutes after a meal. The rich fiber content in our Mangosteen Capsules will make you feel fuller. For diabetics, the fiber will absorb the sugars from the food you eat and not spike your blood levels during the normal digestion of a meal.

As you start to overcome your condition or illness, you will be able to reduce the number of capsules you consume per day, by first reducing the number of capsules during each intake and then by reducing the number of intakes per day.

Preventative Maintenance (one to two capsules twice a day): This dose is recommended if you currently DO NOT suffer from any known medical issues and are NOT taking doctor prescribed and monitored medication and only if you are looking for benefits of increased energy, stamina and vitality, increased sense of happiness or increased mental clarity, concentration, focus and recall, increased male sexual function (libido), restored menstrual activity for women, improved visual acuity & eye health, hangover protection from a night of partying, or just looking to enhance your overall immune system.

It is important to take two capsules twice a day - for a total daily consumption of four capsules - The Loading Dose If you are taking mangosteen for the first time then a higher dose (the loading dose) may be given initially before dropping down to a lower maintenance dose:

1 Capsule Every 6 - 8 Hours: No real medical issues, not under primary care or consuming any pharmaceutical medication.

2 Capsules Every 6 - 8 Hours: Currently experiencing minor to moderate health challenges and may be under primary care and consuming some light to moderate quantities of pharmaceutical medications.

3 Capsules Every 6 - 8 Hours: Currently experiencing moderate to severe health challenges or crises and are under primary care and consuming large amounts of pharmaceutical medications.

Not To Exceed 12 Capsules/Day

For those who have a condition that requires urgent attention, it may be helpful to use the loading dose. This dose is not for everyone, and may rarely cause side effects such as loose stools or constipation. The reason for side effects is the sudden introduction of the mangosteen to the body in large quantities. The side effects are not dangerous, and are no more than an inconvenience. Another reason for using the loading exposure would be if you sense that an illness is about to strike. For instance, if you wake up with a scratchy throat or find yourself becoming congested, lethargic, or experiencing malaise, you may want to switch to the loading dose. when using mangosteen for symptomatic control of chronic disease. Mangosteen is a home remedy and should never be viewed as a replacement to medical intervention.

Maintenance Dose

The maintenance dose of one capsule twice a day will enhance internal protection against viral, bacterial, parasitic, and fungal infection.
