Mangosteens are a tropical fruit that is helping people who suffer from allergy symptoms. It is in the powerful class of antioxidants called xanthones. Doctors are recommending it and there are a large number of testimonials as to its success in helping allergy sufferers.
Mangosteen, often called “the queen of fruit,” has been used for centuries by the people of Southeast Asia to relieve pain from inflammation and to control diarrhea and dysentery. Researches thought that if it could control intestinal inflammation, it should be able to control inflammation in other parts of the body as well.
Mangostin, one of the mangosteen’s xanthones, was found to be as effective as vancomycin, a powerful antibiotic. Xanthones are found in every part of the fruit. The highest concentration of them are found in the pericarp, or rind.
Many allergy sufferers have found natural allergy relief in this juice, which is supposedly great tasting. Of course, if you have peanut allergy, wheat allergy, gluten allergy or some other type of food allergy, you need to continue to avoid these substances.
Aloe vera once created a sensation when people found out about its healing properties for cuts, scrapes and burns. It truly is a remarkable plant, but aloe vera has only one xanthone. Mangosteen has 43 xanthones. It also has a 20 to 30 times greater ability to neutralize free radicals than most fruits and vegetables.
