| MANGOSTEEN: Exposing Its Secret
|(abstracted from : Doctor's Choice /Speical report)
Mangosteen: "The Queen of Fruits"
"Dawn breaks over the jungle of Souteast Asia and begin to burn away the nightime mists. Although it is early, the street side produce markets in villages and towns throughout the land are already bustling with activity, for today is different. In these tropical climates, most fruits and vegetables are available any time of the year, but today, the open air markets are humming with an almost electric anticipation. This only happens twice a year. Every six months. That's the harvest cycle for the prized fruit above all others. THE QUEEN OF FRUITS!"
"For centuries, this scene has played out in lands now known as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. An exotic tropicl fruit, prices and valued above all others, has been a source of enjoyment and benefit for countless generations. The ancient people of Southseast Asia referred to this marvel as The Queen of Fruits. 19th century scientists named it "Garciania Mangostana"".
"With the arrival of Europeans and their ocean going vessels, the Mangosteenwas introduced to the faraway places. Queen Victoria of England, once tasted this imported delicacy, promptly declared it her favorite fruit."
"Today you'll find Mangosteen growing in Australia, Brazil and the islands fo the Carribean. The local people in every spot know the benefit of this extraordinary fruit, and they use it for everything from Malaria to Tuberculosis.A wealth of scientific studies has been conducted to pinpoint the chemical properties that infuse Mangosteen with its remarkable benefits."
MEDICAL DOCTOR FINDS MANGOSTEEN JUICE EFFECTIVE FOR PATIENT CARE
(Dr. J. Frederick Templeman, MD is a primary care physicain with 20 years experience. He is board certified in both the Unites States and Canada.)
"I have been using a Mangosteen functional beverage to draw valid clinical conclusions about its effectiveness in many medical conditions. Initially,I used it as a fallback product only when the regular medicines I prescribed proved ineffectual. I now use it as a first line theraphy in a wide range of conditions because it has, in my experience, proven to be as effcacious or more efficacious than the prescription medicine I used to prescribed for numerous disease states."
"My logic for using Mangosteen extrat rathan than a drug is relatively simple. All drugs are potentially dangerous. There is no safe drug. For example, in a recent study, I read that 11 commonly prescribed drugs would proved fatal to a two year old child if simply one dose for an adult were ingested. Food, by compariosn, is absolutely safe. It also has a legitimate used other than simply to provide energy and nutrition. Food can, and should be used, to modulate body function. After all, Hippocrates, centuries ago, said:"Let food be your medicine"
