The New [Superfood] Kids on the Block (Part 8): Mangosteen

"Mangosteen provides huge health benefits for every organ in our bodies."
– Sam Walters, N.M.D., a family practitioner trained as a specialist in both traditional and natural medicine, with more than 30 years of comprehensive practical experience in the medical profession, and formulated nutritional products for companies and institutions including the NASA Space Center for the astronauts.

"Mangosteen… is able to reverse most of the ailments of modern man."
– Kenneth J. Finsand, M.D., a practicing chiropractic physician for nearly 30 years who specialized in functional medicine throughout his medical career.

"Mangosteen provides powerful support for every organ system in the human body. This fact is being confirmed on a daily basis by clinical experience… I am convinced that Mangosteen will, without a doubt, be the most successful food supplement ever."
– J. Frederic Templeman, M.D., a primary care physician for more than 20 years and board certified in both the United States and Canada.

Mangosteen, The Quick, Nutrition Science bla-bla-bla……

The purple Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), is a tropical evergreen tree believed to have originated in the Sunda Islands and the Moluccas of Indonesia. Though mostly unknown in the USA, it seems to be a very popular fruit in the East Indies, with various uses in Traditional Holistic Medicine.

It grows mainly in Southeast Asia, southwest India, and other tropical areas such as Puerto Rico and Florida, where the tree has been introduced.

Mangosteen, a little more, Nutrition Science bla-bla-bla……

When analyzed specifically for its content of common essential nutrients, mangosteen's nutrition content is considered by some as "modest" at best. But where this superfood is gaining attention is its content of powerful antioxidants called "Xanthones", which occupies a special place above all other fruits, as the main "heavy hitter" in Mangosteen's arsenal of healing compounds.

Xanthones have been shown to have more potent antioxidant activity than vitamin E, one of nature's most powerful known antioxidants. Mangosteen also contains other potent natural compounds like catechins, polysaccharides, quinones, stilbenes and polyphenols.

Xan – WHAT ?………

"Xanthones" are active and natural substances rarely found in fruits and vegetables and are extremely powerful antioxidants. Scientists have identified 200 different varieties of xanthones and remarkably, 40 of which are found in mangosteen.

These antioxidants travel throughout your body, literally mopping up the free radicals on their way, leaving the body cleaner and healthier than before. No other tropical fruit has been found to contain as much xanthones as mangosteen [source of prev. statments].

My "Spooky" Mangosteen Experience…..

Mangosteen is promoted as making one look younger, and I "think" mangosteen has contributed to me looking a little younger than I really am,  although I can't prove it (remember, I'm not trying to sell you anything).

The "spooky" part, is my best friend, had also used mangosteen, and said the same thing about himself, although we had never previously discussed anything with each other about having bought or used mangosteen. It does seem that research has shown that mangosteen has among other things, anti-aging qualities. My experience is of course not a true scientific study, but worth noting…….

Mangosteen is on Amazon!!!

I wanted to make special note of the Genesis Today below right, because they create very high quality products with every attempt to process their product in traditional way.

Genesis Today's products contain not just the fruit juice, but the pulp, flesh, seed oils, skin or inner rinds, also called pericarp, giving the full spectrum of nutrients in the liquid, not like other so called health juices, which are often diluted other low quality juices or water

Click on either product below to check out the product on Amazon.


They call me Mr. Smooth[ie]

As I have said a gazillion times,  to take advantage of these amazing superfoods now popping up un the USA ……


This superfood is perfect for my milkshake tasting daily smoothies, in either liquid or powder form.

Remember, "Doubt is their Greatest Weapon"…..

… one author recently titled his book on how the Pharmaceutical Industry, Modern Medicine, and the Processed Food Industry will do ANYTHING in their power to convince us that these miracles of nature are a hoax or a scam.

Big Business is actually paying people to spread confusion on the web as these new Superfoods try to take root in the lucrative USA market to compete with their manufactured and processed foods and laboratory made medicines.

They are even coming after me and my blog now…..sigh :(
