How Mangosteen Works?

The most effective parts of Garcinia mangostana are the juice, fruit, bark, rind and twigs. The juice and fruit are utilized as a healthy juice and thought to be medicinal drink and food.

Mangosteen skin, fruit and bark appear to contain a number of pharmacologically active constituents. The activity of some of these segregated constituents has been characterized. But there is no trust worthy information about the effects of eating the entire organic product or taking the powdered bark or rind extracts. The skin part of mangosteen reportedly contains tannins. Tannins can have an astringent impact on mucosal tissue and can diminish emissions rate. This astringent impact may lessen the diarrhea problems. Mangosteen also contains xanthones that have antioxidant and different impacts. The particular xanthones include beta-mangostin, alpha-mangostin and gamma-mangostin. Both alpha mangostins and beta-mangostins appear to have in vitro activity against the human Mycobacterium tuberculosis and leukemia cell line HL60. Gamma-mangostin restrains cyclooxygenase and hence leads to the production of prostaglandin. Alpha-mangostin is an inhibitor of mitochondrial function, upsetting the ATP production and electron transport chain, which result in creating accumulation of reactive oxygen species and triggering apoptosis. These impacts may prompt lactic acidosis. Mangosteen also contains the xanthone subsidiaries garcinone E and garcinone B. These constituents seem to have in vitro activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Garcinone E also has in vitro cytotoxic activity against hepatocellular carcinomas. The alpha- and gamma-mangostins also seem to have histamine and serotonin receptor blocking impacts.
