Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), is a tropical evergreen tree, with edible fruit, native to island nations of Southeast Asia and Thailand. Due to widespread prehistoric cultivation, its origin is not certain.
The deliciously sweet, musky fragrance, fresh, tangy flavor, makes it an exotic addition to confection and drinks.
This beautiful, globular, fruit contains a number of active compounds, including xanthones that have antioxidant and other important properties. In laboratory experiments, mangosteen extracts have shown some promising effects, which include halting the growth of some bacteria and fungi and slowing the growth of some cancer cells.
