What is Mangosteen Juice?

Mangosteen juice is the juice squeezed from the mangosteen fruit, which comes from an evergreen tree in Indonesia. Despite the tough outer rind of this fruit, the inner fruit is juicy and soft, often compared to a peach. The fruit and its juice have a citrus flavor and a wide range of nutrients, including a range of vitamins and minerals, such as dietary fiber, magnesium, vitamin C, iron, and potassium, among others. This fruit also possesses a rare form of antioxidant called xanthones, which can have significant health effects on the body.

Benefits of Mangosteen Juice

The powerful benefits of mangosteen juice include its ability to improve skin health, prevent premature aging, reduce inflammation, and defend against gum disease, among others.

Skin Care

The xanthones found in mangosteen juice are quite rare and are not found in many commonly eaten foods. These antioxidants are able to prevent oxidative stress caused by free radicals, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, eliminating age spots and even improving the elasticity of the skin, helping you look younger for longer. [2]

Reduce Inflammation

The various anti-inflammatory compounds found in this juice can help with many common conditions, including arthritis, gout, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and headaches, among many others. [3]

Gum Disease

Research has found that the antibacterial and antioxidant capacity of this juice can aid in preventing common infections of the mouth, which can lead to gum disease. [4]

Antioxidant Effects

Not only do the antioxidants in this juice help with skin care, they can also reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system, aiding with blood pressure control, and will boost the efficacy of the immune system against pathogens and other inflammation that can lead to chronic disease. [5]
