Mangosteen Reduces Inflammation

Spread the love

In a recent randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study, 2 cups of mangosteen juice a day was found to reduce c-reactive protein (CRP) levels in the blood. CRP is a protein made by the body which indicates inflammation and is a marker for some diseases, like heart disease and lupus. Mangosteen has been touted recently as a super fruit because of its immune enhancing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

It is also delicious. It is available in powder was well ready to drink liquid. You may want to think about reaching for a glass of mangosteen tomorrow morning instead of  the old OJ.
