cut up mangosteen

What’s so impressive about mangosteen juice?

This juice beverage uses the WHOLE mangosteen fruit.

Mangosteen fruit is known throughout the world as The Queen of Fruits.

“There is a legend about Queen Victoria offering a reward to anyone who could deliver to her the fabled fruit.” (Wikipedia)

One of the things I learned was that  this juice uses every bit of the fruit.

Remember what your Mom said about the best part of the apple and the potato and the carrot being in the peel?

The best part of the mangosteen is found in the peel.

The peel of the mangosteen is called the Pericarp.

This is where most of that good stuff is found.

That good stuff is called Xanthones.

What are these Xanthones?

“Among the powerful phytonutrients found in the rind of the mangosteen, xanthones stand alone in their impressive benefits. Scientific studies suggest xanthones may promote well-being.”

Xanthones in Mangosteen

“Researchers have identified dozens of biologically active xanthones in the mangosteen fruit. Today, researchers are just beginning to uncover the powerful scientific properties behind the mangosteen fruit.”

Summer has definitely  arrived. This past week we’ve enjoyed 30-35 degree weather. (85 – 95 degrees F) I say it’s too hot to be serious about working. Sitting in my little office with merely my fan for air conditioning, I’m thinking of everything but computer stuff.

Some of you may be having images  of a nice cold beer right about now.

Actually, I’m still thinking about last weekend and our weekend retreat at beautiful Stillwood Camp and Conference Centre.

No, I’m not talking about me… I just happen to be in the picture… surrounded by inspiration.
