A Look at Xanthones and Mangosteen
You may or may not have heard of the warm weather fruit mangosteen but chances are that you have. In fact, you have probably heard about all the health benefits of the mangosteen. The proponents of this fruit claim it helps with every condition known to man. I recently read that the mangosteen is supposed to help with the following conditions:
Female HORMONE IMBALANCE, Male HORMONE IMBALANCE, BLOOD PRESSURE PROBLEMS, GASTRITIS, RHEUMATIC DISEASE, LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, ACID DYSPEPSIA, CROHN’S DISEASE, ADHD, CHOLESTEROL PROBLEMS, ANEMIA, BLADDER INFECTIONS, ANXIETY, CHRONIC PAIN, HASHIMOTO’SHYROIDITIS,ASTHMA,HEMORRHOIDS,AUTISM,AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS,DIVERTICULITIS,ADD,ECZEMA,ALLERGIC RHINITIS,BACK PAIN,ARTHRITIS, H. PYLORI, GUM DISEASE, HYPOGLYCEMIA, CELIAC DISEASE, CHRONIC FATIGUE, FIBROMYALGIA, HEPATITIS C, CYSTIC FRIBROSIS, DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE, DEPRESSION, URINARY TRACT INFECTION, DIABETES, HEADACHE, BACTERIAL CONDITIONS, EPSTEIN-BARR, FATIGUE, FUNGAL INFECTIONS, IMMUNE FUNCTION, CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE, GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE, HOMOCYSTEINE, MIGRAINES, CANCER, PREGNANCY, GERD, SLEEP DISORDERS, DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS, HIATAL HERNIA, ALLERGIES, HEAVY METAL TOXICITY, ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE, HYPERACTIVITY, INDIGESTION, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, SCLERODERMA, ULCERATIVE COLITIS, LOW ENERGY LEVELS, LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSIS, MALE INFERTILITY, MEMORY LOSS, WEIGHT ISSUES, STRESS, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SYSTOMS, PSORIASIS, MUSCLE & JOINT PAIN, MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, NEURODERMATITIS RAYNAUD’S PHENOMENON, OSTEOARTHRITIS, OTITIS EXTERNA, PARASITIC CONDITIONS, PARKINSON’S DISEASE, PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY, PMS, MENOPAUSE, PROSTATE CONDITIONS, SEBORRHEA, IRRITABLE BOWL DISEASE, THYROIDITIS, ULCERS, VIRAL INFECTIONS
Believe it or not, that is only a partial list of the supposed benefits of mangosteen. The one I want to focus in on ahs to do with hormone imbalance. Does mangosteen (and xanthones, which we will look at in a little while) really help with the symptoms of hormone imbalance? In my opinion the verdict is still out. I see a lot of this stuff in the same class as the acai berry fad. These things seem to come and go and I am not yet sold on the “miracle wonders” of mangosteen. So what about Xanthones?
Xanthones are supposed to assist with many of the symptoms of hormone imbalance. Some of the areas in which this biologically active plant phenols is supposed to help is with fatigue, inflammation, skin disorders and many other areas. Once again, I am not sold on this but I am sure it does not hurt. You should always contact a physician before beginning any new treatment.
