This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
This week I am going to tell you about Xanthones and Mangosteen fruit juice supplement, loaded with xanthones.
According to Dr. Frederick Templemen, board certified physician in both Canada and United States, xanthones are a unique biological “active” compound. Active means they couple with other molecules and become very beneficial to the systems of the body. Xanthones can kill cancer cells. They enter the cell wall with antioxidants and can even kill intracell bacteria before it has a chance to mess with the cell’s DNA. Xanthones are never found alone, but in mixed molecules. There are 200 known xanthones and 24 are found in the pericarp (hard outer rind) of the mangosteen fruit. No other fruit or single food source has this quantity. Scientific and clinical studies are being continued on an ongoing basis.
Now to give you an idea on just how hard your body has to work, most of us have heard of free radicals. Free radicals are a molecule or an atom missing an electron. Free radicals are unstable but seek stability. To do this they relentlessly attack the cells like piranhas. They often create damage impossible to repair. Virtually all known health problems are caused by pollutants, infection and poor eating habits. Unfortunately, these free radicals are in abundance everywhere.
Antioxidants, on the other hand, are single molecules or atoms with an extra electron. These extra electrons stabilize free radicals. Antioxidants help the cardiovascular system, the gastro-intestinal system, the respiratory system, the immune system. the nervous system, the skin and many other places which have been damaged by free radicals.
Scientific studies have shown the mangosteen fruit grown in the rain forests of southeast Asia, and no relation to the mango fruit grown in the western hemisphere, is the best source of xanthones. The mangosteen fruit is revered by the natives in the southeast Asia countries where it is grown as the Queen of Fruits.
Dr. Templemen has this to say about the qualities contained in the mangosteen fruit. “Secondary research has unearthed over 40 scientific papers in which biochemically acive components of the mangosteen have been rigorously examined in the laboratory. It is already evident that the multiple health benefits of the fruit are supported by scientific investigation.”
The whole mangosteen fruit, including the rind (pericarp) is used in the production of the health saving liquid product. With the cooperation of Wild Flavor, from Germany apple juice concentrate, pear juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, pear puree, blueberry juice concentrate, raspberry juice concentrate, strawberry juice concentrate, cranberry juice concentrate, cherry juice concentrate and two grams of neutral sugar for every 25.35 ounces of mangosteen juice have been added to the whole food to make it more palatable. It is obvious from the contents of ingredients that ingesting the juice will not affect any chemical preparations your doctor might have prescribed. There are only 10 calories in a whole 25.35 ounce bottle so weight gain will not be a problem.
As usual I have given this information a lot of thought and research. If you have any questions about this article or any other articles I have written, you can call me at 773-5764. I like to talk to my readers.
