Approximately 40 of over 200 naturally occurring xanthones are found in Garcinia mangostana (mangosteen). The most studied xanthones are α, β and γ-mangostins, garcinone E, 8-deoxygartanin and gartanin. They possess antioxidant, anti-tumoral, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties.
♦ Anti-microbial activities: The extract has broad spectrum anti-bacterial activity against several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
♦ Anti-allergic action: The extract strongly inhibits histamine release and prostaglandin E2 synthesis.
♦ Anti-inflammatory action: It attenuates expression of inflammatory mediators such as TNF-α and IL-6, NF-ϰB. Ingestion of a blended mangosteen juice decreased serum C-reactive protein levels.
