Mangosteen has been most commonly used by adults at doses of up to 560 mg orally per day for up to 12 weeks. Consulting a healthcare provider is the best way to determine the right dosage for a particular condition. Eating mangosteen two or three times a day is considered safe, but there is no specific recommended daily intake. Mangosteen extracts and xanthones have been reported to eliminate 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), 2,20-azino-bis-(3-ethylbenziazoline-6-sulphonic) (ABTS) and peroxynitrite radicals (Yoshikawa et al.).
To account for individual variability in absorption rate of xanthone in mangosteen juice, 60 participants were used in the study (Chitchumroonchokchai et al.). Patented mangosteen juice and extract, aloe vera gel and green tea (decaffeinated) made up 10% of the wet weight of the beverage. For those who want to reap the health benefits of mangosteen but have difficulty finding fresh fruit, there are many mangostean-based products available, such as supplements and juices.
