Why USDA Certified Organic?
Important: Why is it important that our Mangosteen be certified organic? First of all, it guarantees that you are getting a product that is free of additives, chemicals and preservatives. Secondly, because buying certified organic Mangosteen ensures that you are actually getting real Mangosteen. We have been selling Mangosteen for about 7 years, and since the recent media focus on Mangosteen it has increased in popularity. It has also increased the number of Mangosteen products on the market and many of them are not pure Mangosteen or may not even contain Mangosteen. Buying certified organic Mangosteen ensures that you are buying the real thing at its best!

Mangosteen Elixir® Ingredients:
Our Mangosteen Elixir® is a synergistic blend of pure, hand-harvested, cold-pressed mangosteen juice (Garcinia mangostana) and mangosteen puree (mangosteen is 60% by volume), organic black cherry (Prunus avium), black elderberry (Sambucus nigra), pomegranate (Punica granatum), noni (Morinda citrifolia), goji (Lycium barbarum), organic red raspberry (Rubus idaeus), organic cranberry (Vaccinium oxycoccus), and blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) juice blend (40% by volume).
Our juice includes the sweet fleshy pulp of the interior of the mangosteen fruit as well as the xanthone-rich pericarp.
Pulp (n.): soft of fleshy plant tissue such as the inner part of a fruit or vegetable.
Per·i·carp (n.): the part of a fruit that surround the seed or seeds, including the skin or rind.
Xan·thone (n.): C13H8O2 a unique class of biologically active compounds possessing numerous bioactive capabilities, such as high antioxidant properties.
The exact place of origin of mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana L.) is unknown but research indicates it was probably somewhere in the Malay Archipelago. Native species may still be found growing wild on some islands. The majority of today’s mangosteen cultivation occurs in Thailand with smaller areas of cultivation throughout Southeast Asia. Mangosteen has proved itself a difficult plant to domesticate. It has been planted throughout the warm/humid climate regions of the world with little success in any mass cultivation. This is due to the mangosteen’s inability to acclimate itself to any other region than its place of origin. The result of this limited cultivation, combined with the mangosteen plant being very slow growing, is expressed it the high price for the pure finished product.
Mangosteen is composed of these substances:
There is a big buzz in the medical and holistic community these days and it’s all because of a fairly recent discovery. This discovery is the phenomenal health benefits the human body derives from a phytochemical class known as xanthones. Over 200 xanthones have been identified in nature, with each one possessing its own unique effects on the body. Xanthones are contained within a large family of compounds known as phenols and within this grouping can also found bioflavonoids, anthocyanins, and proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Xanthones are the primary active phytochemical class found in the Mangosteen fruit (Garcinia mangostana L.). Science has crowned the king of xanthones and it’s the mangosteen fruit, with over 40 xanthones identified in the pericarp, more commonly known as the rind, making the mangosteen the most abundant source of xanthones in the world. Of these 40 or so xanthones only six of the xanthones have been studied in depth - with much excitement, I would like to add. These xanthones isolated are Mangostin, Mangostanol, y-Mangostin, Gartanin, Garcinone B and Garcinone E. Researches still don’t completely understand how the xanthones in the mangosteen fruit exert such a favorable impact on human health. Researches though, do validate the fact that the mangosteen possesses powerful healing properties that surpass many man made substances.
In conclusion, over the months and years to come the scientific community will continue to unlock more secrets still to be found inside the mangosteen fruit. With each new clinical study we move another step closer to validating its main phytonutrients, mangosteen xanthones, for the treatment and prevention of disease. Today we can all reap the benefits from nature and science in the form of our Synergy Juice Blend™ of nine high ORAC rated, antioxidant-rich fruits that are Mangosteen Elixir®. It tastes terrific and it’s terrific for you!
