Mangosteen Rx capsules are made from pure Mangosteen powder derived from the fruit's pericarp or rind, the part of the fruit which contains most of the xanthones found in the fruit.
Xanthones, the principal active ingredient in these capsules, are concentrated mostly in the fruit's rind.
There are more than 40 xanthones in the Mangosteen, with similar molecular structures but with different health-enhancing properties.
The most well-known of these xanthones are alpha-mangostin and gamma-mangostin, two of the most-studied xanthones found in this exotic fruit.
These two xanthones were found to provide a wide variety of health benefits, and are praised for their anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Manufacturers say that these capsules offer three times more pure Mangosteen than the liquid supplements, but they sell for much less.
They claim that these capsules have no fillers, additives, preservatives or artificial colors, compared to Mangosteen liquid dietary supplements which contain other fruit extracts. In other words, these capsules contain just pure 100 percent Mangosteen.
Manufacturers also say that they do not use heat or solvents in the extraction process, which preserves the fruit's natural quality.
This amazing fruit has been used for centuries by the indigenous peoples of Southeast Asia for its medicinal value. Scientific studies done on the fruit show that it possesses potent healing properties.
Aside from alpha-mangostin and gamma-mangostin, Mangosteen contains the following xanthones which have been the subject of many scientific studies and pharmacological research:
Mangosteen Rx capsules are manufactured mostly in 500 mg dosages. Some are sold in bottles of 90 capsules, while others come in bottles of 60 capsules. They sell for as low as $4 per bottle.
