Lipgloss Culture Highlight
Mangosteen is not a mango, and is not even related to mangos. It is a tropical fruit native to southeast Asia and is super rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Mangosteen nutrition benefits include prevention of conditions such as arthritis and hormonal imbalances. It was also found to be anti-inflammatory and helps stop the growth of bacteria, fungi and certain cancer cells.
Mangosteen is a superfood much like acai and goji, packed with antioxidants. Although not readily available in its fruit form, most health food stores have mangosteen juice in the beverage isle.
Cool Fact: It takes 10-15 years for a mangosteen tree to bear the first batch of fruits.
