Is Mangosteen Juice the Next Acai Berry Or Just a One Hit Wonder?

With all of the health foods and juices out there, it can at times be difficult to pick out the one that you will receive the most benefits from. Not every health food or juice is the same and it is important that you do your research to find out which one is the best for you. Luckily, there is a juice that promotes health that is definitely worth taking notice of. The juice in question is mangosteen juice, which comes from the mangosteen fruit.

Upon seeing the word, one would probably think that the mangosteen is somehow related to the mango, but they are not related even in the slightest. The mangosteen fruit actually comes from Southeast Asia and is purple in coloring. In size, it could be compared to either a small apple or tangerine and to open the fruit, you would either squeeze it or twist it. Once inside the fruit, you will see a thick and dark rind and in the middle of that rind will be the actual fruit which is soft and white in color.

The cost of mangosteen juice is a little on the high side and it may be one of the juice’s only downfall. A bottle of mangosteen juice can run anywhere from fifteen dollars all the way up to thirty of 40. Luckily, juice manufacturers claim that a person only needs an ounce or two of the juice per day in order to receive the maximum health benefits. Mangosteen juice can be ordered on the Internet or can be purchased in some health food and vitamin stores. For those who don’t want to drink the juice, there is a pill supplement containing mangosteen as well.

 Most of the positive nutrients  that is found in the mangosteen fruit do not actually come from the fruit itself; it comes from the hard rind which does not have that swell of a taste to it. Due to this, when mangosteen juice is made, it is often times intermingled with other fruit juices in order to give it more of a pleasant taste. It has been found that drinking mangosteen juice does not just have one health benefit; it actually has many.

Mangosteens are rich in antioxidants, which have been all over the news and in the media the past several years. Antioxidants stop the oxidation process of the body burning up cells, which then leads to inflammation. Antioxidants are thought to be able to help prevent heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease and some even say that they help prevent cancer as well. This is important information to have since everyone seems to be more concerned about their health now then they have ever been.

The last benefit is that mangosteen juice is often used to promote weight loss in women. Certain studies have shown that mangosteen juice can help women fight obesity and it has been used for this purpose in some countries for quite some time. There are several more benefits to drinking mangosteen juice, but it can easily be seen from the few that are listed that the juice is something to check into if you’re interested in promoting your body’s health. Drinking beverages for health related nutrients seems to be a new forming health trend.
