Dr. Alfred's Pure Mangosteen Capsules 500mg Box of 60's

Dr. Alfred's Pure Mangosteen Capsule are made in Kidapawan City, at the foot of the majestic Mt. Apo where mangosteen trees grow abundantly. It has been proven that mangosteen fruits and leaves contain xanthones- the most powerful anti- oxidant known to man.

This is the best defense against cancer! Dr. Alfred Mangosteen Pure Mangosteen Capsules have strongly suggested inhibitory effect (decreased in the growth) on cancer cells as shown in the studies done by UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, Chandler Medical Center, USA.

Mangosteen contains 40 highly potent Xanthones.

There are 200 known Xanthones found in fruits & vegetables and remarkably 40 are found in mangosteen.

  • Mangosteen (Gardenia mangostana L.) contains Xanthones, a biologically active phytonutrients with powerful natural antioxidant properties. Scientists and researchers have found Xanthones-laden fruit of Mangosteen for the beneficial effects of Alpha-mangostin, Gamma-mangostin and Garcione E. It also contains healthy protective substances such as Catechins, Polyphenois, vitamin C, vitamin E and vitamin B complete

  • Dr. Alfred's Pure Mangosteen Capsule is 500 milligrams in weight and has 60 capsules per box.

  • Each capsule is made up of Mangosteen (Gardenia mangostana L.) fruit pulp powder, gelatine and Magnesium stearate.

    The World Bank has a think tank of experts who each year consider all of the world's serious challenges and prioritize them. In 2002, these experts felt that the integrity of the world's water supply was the earth's top problem. However, the number two spot was taken by the problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Studies show that xanthones can inhibit the reporduction of certain types of bacteria, such as, salmonella typhi and the tuberculosis bacteria.

    Systemic fungal infections have increased 800 percent in the past decade, and in those patients the mortality rate is from 40-60 percent. The xanthones of the Mangosteen were tested experimentally against three common fungi and demonstrated capability of inhibiting their growth.

    While inflammation can affect all tissues in the body, it is the primary mechanism underpinning diseases, which attact muscles, joints and connective tissues. Researchers from India used the rind from Mangosteen to investigate its effects on other types of inflammation in the body.

Their experiments produced the following results:
            1.) Suppression of acute and chronic inflammation and edema rats.
            2.) Inhibition of systemic anaphylaxis (fatal inflammatory reaction) in guinea pigs and rats.
            3.) Inhibition of arthritis in rats.

    In another paper studying Mangosteen's effect on inflammation, it was noted that the xanthones do not interfere with the clotting mechanism of blood or produce stomach ulcers. Both of these are serious side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs. In fact, it was found that the xanthones exhibited significant anti-ulcer activity in experimental animals.

Anti-Lipidemia - Lowering of blood cholesterol
    Scientist from Australia and Thailand have postulated that if Mangosteen inhibits oxidative (free radical) damage, then perhaps it could help with reducing the oxidination of LDL ("bad" cholesterol) in the blood. After a series of such experiments, scientists concluded  that  the xanthones from Mangosteen are effective inhibitors of LDL oxidination. They further suggested that the xanthones possess therapeutic in the Mangosteen, were discovered to be five times more potent as antioxidants than vitamin C, which is commonly regarded as the most powerful known antioxidant.

    To combat the destructive effect of free radicals upon cells, "antioxidants" are necessary in large quantities. An antioxidant is an atom or molecule with extra electrons that if can donate to neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules having unpaired valence electrons. After studying the antioxidant properties of the Mangosteen, a new laboratory test known as ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), developed by USDA researchers at Tufts University. Researchers discovered that the Mangosteen rind exhibited "potent free scavenging activity".

    Cancer always begins with a single change in a single cell. Every day the immune system literally inactivates numerous aberrant cells that could become cancerous. The anti-cancer activity of Mangosteenphytoceuticals specifically Garcinone E has been well-documented. Garcinone E, a xanthone found only in Mangosteen, is a natural compound and has been known to cause no side effects, as opposed to (5) five commonly used chemotherapeutic agents. Catechins, a tannin derivatives found in many plants and high amounts in Mangosteen, have been shown to protect the body from some forms of cancer in at least three different ways:
            1.) Prevent the formation of carcinogenic compounds by blocking cocarcinogens.
            2.) Turn up the body's natural detoxification defenses.
            3.) Directly suppress cancer growth and development.
In addition, Mangosteen can compliment and enhance the efficiency and effectivity of the anti-cancer drugs.

    Viruses account for the majority of human infections, many of which are acute short-lived illnesses like colds. Other viruses are never eliminated from the body but persist for years in chronic infections. Because xanthones have anti-viral capabilities, scientists at the National University have on the HIV virus. In the experiment, two xanthones demonstrated the ability to interfere the HIV protease causing the virus to remain immature and incapable of infection.

    Asthma is a chronic (long duration) inflammatory disease of the smaller airways of the lungs. In asthma, inflammation and other complex immune system effects cause recurrent episodes of characteristic wheezing when the small airways of the lungs are narrowed due to the contraction of muscles in their walls. Asthma can develop at any age, but about %0 percent of cases occur in childhood. The majority of the remaining cases start before age 40. It is rare to develop asthma after age 50. The incidence of the disease has been increasing and despite the development of many new medications, the number of deaths from asthma has risen substantially in recent years. Unfortunately, all the medications used to treat asthma have some undesirable or dangerous side effects. Bronchodilators cause rapid beating of the and can precipitate panic attacks. Steroids, inhaled and taken orally, have side-effect profiles that become a problem when used for a long duration.

    Atheroclerosis is a pathological process, wherein the arteries have been narrowed by plaques and fatty deposits on the aterial walls, thus narrowing the diameter of the arteries, diminishing the elasticity of the blood vessel wall, thereby, impeding or compromising blood flow. The Mangosteen contains xanthones that are among the most potent antioxidants known to science. Research has demonstrated the positive effect these xanthones can do in preventing atherosclerosis. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart that pumps oxygen-rich blood via arteries to every cell in the body, and the veins and capilliaries that eventually bring it back to the heart. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), cardiovascular disease contributed to one-third of disease all global deaths. The AHA has estimated that by 2010 cardiovascular disease will be leading cause of death in developing countries.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
    COPD is the acronym for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a label grouping two common obstructive lung diseases: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Caused by smoking, air pollution and occupational exposure, these two entities commonly coexist. Like asthma, another obstructive lung disease, COPD has been increasing in the U.S. population over the past couple decades. Currently, it affects about 15 million people and is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. Chronic bronchitis is defined as chronic cough productive of mucous for at least three months of the year and for at least two years. In emphysema, the obstructive component of the disease results from changes in lung tissue rather than from the increased production of mucous or the presence of chronic inflammations in chronic bronchitis. Once again, as it does in asthma, Mangosteen intervenes at several points in the disease processes of chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Its antiviral, antibacterial and anti fungal effects can reduce the frequency of lung infections, thereby reducing cumulative tissues damage. As a result, effects of the xanthones (active biological ingredients in the Mangosteen) decrease both inflammation and cell damage while helping prevent the onset of deadly pulmonary hypertension. Since Mangosteen extract  also has potent antioxidant effects, it intervenes in every process where free radicals cause cell damage, wheher from the inflammation of chronic bronchitis or the destruction of the elastic recoil of the alveoli in emphysema.

Diabetes Mellitus
    Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disorder that is mainly characterized by an increase or elevated blood sugar (hyperglycemia) due to reduced insulin secretion, decrease or under-utilization of glucose, an increase of all glucose production. The metabolic dysregulation associated with the diabetes mellitus causes secondary pathophysiological changes in multiple organ systems and on the health care system. In the United States diabetes mellitus is the leading cause end stage renal disease non-traumatic lower extremities amputation due to infection and finally gangrene, and adult blindness. Diabetes Mellitus will most likely continue to be a leading cause of morbidity and mortality for the foreseeable future.

Patients using Mangosteen supplement report:
    1) Decreased fasting blood-sugar levels.
    2) Decreased 2-hour, postprandial blood-sugar levels.
    3) Improved energy 
    4) Decreased requirements for hypoglycemic medications
    5) Decreased pain from neuropathy.

    Crohn's disease is another chronic inflammatory disease with no identified cause, which commonly afflicts young people from 10 to 30 years of age. Crohn's disease begins below the mucous and spreads both inward and outward through the deeper layers of the bowel wall. Crohn's disease is often treated surgically by resecting areas of diseased bowel, which never fully heals and where scarring can cause obstruction. The mainstay of medical treatment is the use of powerful anti-inflammatory medications (like steroids). Mangosteen addresses the problems of inflammation, immune cell damage, and the treat of infection in Crohn's disease. Perhaps the most widespread use of the Mangosteen for folk medicine purposes has had to do with the gastrointestinal (GI) systems. Dysemetry in the third world has at times reached plaque proportions and is always a significant factor in the mortality of infants and children. Active against GI pathogens , the Mangosteen is also used to reduce the inflammation in the intestine, which causes the loss of essential nutrients and body fluids into the stool. In other GI related studies, a laboratory in 1996 demonstrated that the xanthones, alpha and gamma mangosteen, had both histamine and  serotonin receptor blocking capacity.

Immune system
    The word around us contains all sorts of microbial dangers. Daily. we are confronted with bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. These organisms are called pahtogens, and they invade our bodies at every opportunity. Our body's immune system amazingly orchestrates a complex defense system against pathogenic invaders. However, the immune system is weak at various time in our life, like in infancy and old age, and is affected by nutrition, pollution and many other environmental factors such as radiation found in sunlight. That is why diet, exercise and supplements play critical roles in keeping our bodies healthy and strong. The xanthones abundantly found in Mangosteen support and bolster the body's immune system.

Multiple Sclerosis
    Multiple sclerosis is the leading cause of neurological disability in young adults. It usually strikes between 20 and 50 years of age with a peek of age 30, and women are afflicted twice as often as men. The central nervous system, meaning the brain and the spinal cord, is the target of this disease, which is both inflammatory and autoimmune in nature. Other diseases, which belong to autoimmune category, are rheaumatoid athritis, some forms of hypothyroidism and lupus. While the absolute cause of MS is still not clear, more than 20 infectious agents, both viruses and bacteria, have been linked to its occurence. The xanthones of Mangosteen are powerful anti-inflammatory and appear to work by diminishing the damage of inflammation both during and between attacks. Additionally, experiments with powerful antioxidant therapy have shopwn protective effects upon the myelin sheaths. Finally, infections that lead to MS as well as prevents, recurrent urinary tract and bedsore infections in patients with advance disease.

     Myalgia simply means muscle pain, and there are literally a dozen disease entities as well as just plain unaccustomed exertion that can cause it. Once severe destruction of the muscle fibers has been ruled out by blood tests, the problem becomes the control of the inflammation that's causing pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. NSAIDS, are used both over the counter and by prescription to control symptoms. However, these drugs have several side effects, and if used for a prolonged period of time, they can cause stomach irritation, ulcers, gastro-esophageal reflux and kidney damage. It makes sense to use side effect-free alternatives. In laboratory studies, MAngosteen extract was found to be a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDS) more potent anti-inflammatory agent, and it is very effective in the treatment of myalgia.

Nervous system - Parkinsonism and Alzheimer's disease
    Few diseases have been  in the public eye as consistently as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's> these terribly debilitating degenerative disease of the central nervous system already affect millions, and the incidence is rising yearly. Unfortunately, the emphasis in research has been on finding cures rather than focusing on prevention. Once again, 
Dr. Nakatani's research with research with gial cells (central nervous system cells) suggests that Mangosteen could produce a therapeutic effect in both the prevention and treatment of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease by reducing oxidative damage and inflammation.

    As air pollution increases, the incidence of asthma, an allergic/inflammatory disease of the lungs, is rising alarmingly. Both TB and asthma, including all other forms of lung infection, begin with the inhalation of microbes of allergens. A study released in September of 2002 reported that the rind of the Mangosteen not only acted as an anti-inflammatory agent but also as an anti-allergenic agent. This is important information for asthma sufferers. When you consider that the Mangosteen affects both the initial insult and the body's inflammatory response to asthma, it becomes a unique agent in the treatment of the disease. No other single agent can intervene in both disease pathways. Mangosteen alone can accomplish waht several drugs do in the treatment of asthma.

Skin doctors
    Skin disorders are usually problems of inflammation, like eczema and dermatitis infection, in wounds, ringworm, acne and impetigo; and growth disorders of the dermis, like psoriasis or seborrhea. Cancer and sun damage make up the remaining common causes of skin complaints. Mangosteen has been used in folk medicine for centuries to treat these problems and the reported end results were truly amazing.
