The scientific name is Garcinia Mangostana, and for thousands of years it has not only been eating as a delicious tropical fruit but also used in folk medicine for various ailments. The medicinal value is actually not in the fruit itself but in the rind. The hard leathery rind is ground into a powder, poultice or tea and used to treat diarrhea, dysentery, skin ailments, chronic pain, infection, fever and inflammation amongst others. In 2002, The Queen of Fruits was first made commercially available in XANGO JUICE ! This juice remains the only mangosteen whole-fruit juice. A strategic partnership with Wild Flavors, took several years designing special manufacturing processes to grind the entire fruit, including rind, pericarp, seeds and pulp, into a palatable formula safe for all ages. This juice deliciously delivers the full nutritional value of mangosteen to the homes of consumers. For centuries, those in Southeast Asia have revered the mangosteen, both for its flavor and the suggestion that it promotes good health. The whole mangosteen fruit especially the xanthone packed pericarp or rind has been used traditionally to treat a variety of health conditions. As early as 600 AD, scribes recorded the use of the mangosteen in the support and maintenance of good health. In 2013 XANGO was issued US Patent # 8,524,285 . There are 2 formulations, The Classic Juice and The Reserve Juice.
