Ultra Mangosteen is a dietary supplement that offers several classes of powerful phytonutrient antioxidants that have been derived from the mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L), an exotic fruit that comes from Southeast Asia. The mangosteen has been nicknamed the Queen of Fruits and in some parts of the world the Food of the Gods for its various health benefits and for its delightful taste. For thousands of years, Asian countries have been using the mangosteen in Chinese, Ayurvedic and folk medicine to support optimal health.
The secret to the mangosteens health promoting abilities is the xanthones contained in the fruit. Xanthones are biologically active plant phenols that that are structurally similar to flavonoids that have been found to possess multiple health benefits. When it comes to xanthones, there is no other fruit that possesses a more potent concentration of xanthones than the mangosteen.
One of the key benefits of xanthones is their antioxidant properties. Xanthones possess an extra electron, and help to seek out and quench free radicals in the body. Free radicals are atoms that have an odd number of electrons. Free radicals wreak havoc on the bodys cells as they wander through the body searching for another electron. ConcenTrace®
The difference between Ultra Mangosteen and other mangosteen products found on the market is that Ultra Mangosteen contains a potent, full spectrum complex of over 72 ionic trace minerals and elements from ConcenTrace®. This complex of bioavailable minerals supercharges our formula to help in the absorption and assimilation of all nutrients so you can attain the greatest health benefit possible.
Highest ORAC Value30,000!
The reason Ultra Mangosteen is different from other mangosteen products is because of its unmatched ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score. The ORAC test is a laboratory test tube analysis that measures the total in vitro antioxidant power of foods. The higher the ORAC score, the greater the potential benefits because of the antioxidants that help defend against free radical damage to the cells. Recent research highlights the benefits of eating plenty of high-ORAC foods, citing that they may help support healthy aging in both body and brain. By using a proprietary extraction process, Ultra Mangosteen contains the highest concentration of free radical-fighting xanthones , which gives it the highest potency of antioxidants when compared to similar mangosteen products.
The Mangosteen is a tropical fruit that grows on trees, and is cultivated in both the northern and southern hemispheres. It is composed of pericarp (rind), pulp (fruit), and seeds. The pulp is composed of four to eight white segments of juicy, soft flesh that is of the consistency of a ripe plum. The pericarp consists of a dark purple, smooth rind about 6-10 mm thick which encloses the pulp.
