Prized because of its exquisite flavor, the Mangosteen (no relation to the Mango of course) is called the "Queen of Fruits" in Asia and the "Food of the Gods" in the French Caribbean.

Scientific studies have revealed an incredible scope of potent human health benefits leading many to believe that Mangosteen will be the most important fruit on earth.

One of its biggest advantages is the presence of antioxidants, which is well-known to stop the aging process. There are also other natural supplements such as: fiber, potassium, calcium, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Iron, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6, to name a few.

One of the greatest benefits of the mangosteen fruit is that it strengthens the body’s immune system, thus helping it to fight infections and other diseases.
