XANTHONES
What are Xanthones? Xanthones are a family of phytonutrients loaded with potent health benefits and antioxidant properties. Xanthones even offer greater antioxident properties than vitamins C and E.Where are xanthones found? They are found in a select number of rain forest plants, but nowhere are they found inmore abundance than in the pericarp, or rind of the mangosteen fruit. The mangosteen – not just the inner flesh, butthe whole fruit – represents the single greatest supply of these beneficial xanthones. Research has revealed themangosteen is the source of more than 40 distinct xanthones, and ongoing science is finding new benefits of thesexanthones every day.
