Natural Home Cures - Other Xanthones & Properties in Mangosteen
Scientists investigating the effects of the mangosteen xanthones on the HIV-1 virus found that mangostin and gamma-mangostin demonstrated the ability to inhibit the activity of the HIV-1 virus that causes AIDS.(1) (Clinical, Academic and Medical Laboratory Testing Only - No Long Term Human Testing Was Performed In This Study)
Xanthones also have cancer-fighting properties. In one study, a xanthone from the mangosteen—Garcinone E—was found to be more effective than the chemotherapy agents flouraurcil, cisplatin, vincristine, methotrexate, and mitoxantrone in killing lung, stomach, and liver cancer cells.(2)
Researchers found that alpha-mangostin, beta-mangostin, and garcinone B were strong inhibitors of mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Mangostin was also found to have the ability to protect the LDL from oxidative damage by free radicals.(3) This helps control and lower "bad cholesterol" (LDL) levels and so assists in preventing the clogging of arteries (heart disease). Xanthones also have the ability to stop histamines that often cause uncomfortable inflammation in people with allergies.(4)
