At the center of attention about mangosteen are the biologically active compounds found in the skin of the fruit, called xanthones. Within the last 7 years, the xanthones have been the focus of much scientific research. With over 200 xanthones identified in nature, so far 43 xanthones are identified in the mangosteen fruit. The mangosteen is simply the most singular, abundant source of xanthones on earth. Continued study is required as only 6 of the 43 xanthones found in the mangosteen fruit, have been researched. However, their potent activity and broad-ranging indications for use may soon reveal the mangosteen’s xanthones to be one of the all-time greatest medical discoveries.
