Mangosteen extract is refined from mangosteen husk as raw material, and its main component is α-Mangostin (α-Mangostin). Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana Linn) is a very common fruit in Southeast Asia. However, many scholars have made further research on mangosteen. Mangosteen extract contains many unique active substances, mainly including oxalonone chemicals.
Among them Mangostin is the most deeply explored with scientific experienment. Mangosteen extract function is confirmed that its biological activity has anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
Mangostin is insoluble in water, but easily soluble in low to medium polar solvents such as n-hexane, chloroform, and ethyl acetate.

Mangosteen extract has been studied in animal experiments and clinical double-blind human trials to study its anti-inflammatory effects. The mechanism of action is to inhibit cytokines (Cytokines: TNF-α, IL-1), thereby reducing the activity of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2) and reducing prostaglandin PGE2 It also reduces the inflammation index TNF-α, and human test results show that taking 600mg of 10% mangosteen extract every day for five consecutive days can effectively reduce pain by 50%, which is equivalent to the effect of taking the non-steroid drug Nimesulide, which is long-term The best alternative for patients taking anti-inflammatory drugs.
It is a new choice for patients with arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis who have taken anti-inflammatory drugs for a long time. Mangosteen extract is extracted from mangosteen fruit. It is 100% natural food material and has no doubts about side effects. It has been clinically tested The data shows that the effect is equivalent to that of the medicine, and it can be used as a normal health care product.
2. Phytoestrogen-like effects
The biological effects of phytoestrogens are mainly manifested in hormone-related diseases, such as breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, menopausal syndrome, etc. Alpha-mangostin has a therapeutic effect on hormone-related diseases.
