Sweet juicy mangosteen is known as “The Queen of Fruits.” It’s a white fleshy fruit housed in a dark red inedible rind. Mangosteen is high in vitamin C that your body needs for healthy wrinkle-free skin and normal immune system function.
Mangosteen is also high in B vitamins that are essential for converting the foods you eat into the energy you need to get through your workouts. It’s also a great source of iron, which is important for women who have heavy menstrual periods. Not getting enough iron can leave you feeling tired and weak.
The fruit is also a good source of dietary fiber that will keep your digestive system healthy and help regulate your cholesterol levels.
You’ll find canned mangosteen on the shelves in your local grocery store. It’s more difficult to find fresh mangosteen but it’s often sold at stores that specialize in health foods or exotic fruits and veggies.
