Dr. Oz and Dan Buettner author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest wrote about the 5 most important Superfoods we must all begin to eat now. The Queen of Fruits, the Mangosteen was #3 on this list. Mangosteen (Tang YP) has more antioxidants than any other fruit, is rich in vitamins A and C and tastes delicious. Mangosteens contain xanthones (Watanapokasin) which are considered to be the most powerful of all antioxidants. Benefits researched cover improved cardiovascular health, natural antibiotic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging.
