Mangosteen is a stunningly beautiful fruit. The curved caylex leaves and thick purple rind (or exocarp) hide the luscious smooth white segments of flesh (called arils) inside.
Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is a tropical evergreen tree from the Guttiferae family that grows primarily in Thailand, parts of India, the Malay Peninsula, and the Philippines. The tree yields a sweet, edible dark purple fruit that is parthenogenesis, meaning it doesn’t require fertilization. Besides being eaten in its natural raw state, it’s also used in jellies, jams, fruit juices, and a wide variety of mangosteen nutritional supplements.
Besides being a healthy and delicious fruit, it is now being recognised as a super fruit. Studies are still underway in the United States to learn about the full potential of mangosteen. It is usually stated as being rich in nutrition with great antioxidant strength and which reduces risk of disease.
Mangosteen nutritional supplements are usually offered in the form of a beverage supplements, often combined with other superfood nutrition sources such as berries. Mangosteen is also an ingredient in Kyäni Sunrise
Mangosteen and Xanthones
Xanthones are chemical compounds that are either produced synthetically or found in naturally grown fruits and vegetables. They are powerful antioxidants and are part of a family called phytonutrients. So far about 200 xanthones have been discovered. Around forty of these have been found in mangosteen. PubMed.gov documents much research on mangosteen and xanthones. Antioxidants are beneficial because they help your body neutralize free radicals, or toxins, that often build up in the body and cause health problems or disease. Such toxin build-up has been known to cause cancer, heart disease, and other harmful diseases.
We know that pure water is essential to our survival. But did you know that water can do much more for you than just quench your thirst?
Every year thousands of people with a wide variety of health problems spend a lot of money to travel to special sacred places around the world. They do this for one reason… to drink the so called “miracle water”.
These places include very well known sites like Lourdes in France plus others that may not be as well known, like Nordenau in Germany, Tlacote in Mexico and Nadana in India.
People flock to the natural water sources at such sites because they believe the water has special healing powers, with the ability to improve their serious health conditions, slowing down the aging process and generally helping their well-being.
So what is different about the water at these locations?
Forget myth and fantasy, science has an answer. The waters from these site share a particular property which makes it unique – lots of hydrogen. In scientific research conducted by Dr. Shirahata at Kyushu University in Japan, “miracle water” samples contained at least 200-300 times more hydrogen than the normal tap water he tested. Depending on the source of the “miracle water”, that number was often even greater.
Why does the increased level of hydrogen matter? Getting back to science, because when water contains hydrogen, it’s a powerful antioxidant that gobbles up harmful free radicals (unstable electrons which “steal” electrons from our cells in order to stablize themselves) and helps remove than from your system. This reduces the cell damage that contributes to aging. So, to summarize – Hydrogen is known as a powerful antioxidant due to its readiness to donate its electron and its ability to penetrate into cell membranes, thus effectively protecting your DNA from free radical attacks. The hydrogen’s electrons pair up with the free radicals and convert them into harmless substances, like water. So a dangerous free radical becomes simply water!
You can now have as much as this extraordinary water as you want, whenever you want it – without expensive overseas travel – all you need is the Hexagon Alkaline Hydrogen Water Filtration System. We have covered to the hydrogen part, but what about the Alkaline… please keep reading.
Our bodies have a natural, built in alkali buffer, so this in itself means that it’s important for our bodies to remain alkaline. It seems quite straightforward to me, though there are people who doubt it and they are entitled to their opinion. However, personally, I’m not prepared to take the risk. Our alkali buffer “wears out” over time and over time our acidic diets overburden us, so I’m willing to take steps to help my body remain alkaline.
Our natural pH buffer has the ability to keep our blood pH at an optimal level. However, over a long period of time acidity can occur, especially considering most people have relatively poor acidic diets. When acid starts to build up from too much stress, too much junk food and simply getting older, it could mean serious health problems. The Hexagon Alkaline Hydrogen Water Filter produces alkaline water to ensure your body does not become acidic.
Hexagon Alkaline Hydrogen Water contains small hexagonal water clusters.
Generally the molecular size of tap water is around 128Hz thus need to be broken down by the body before the water can be utilised by the body.
RO (reverse osmosis) water and bottled mineral water have a reading of 90 – 100Hz.
On the other hand, the Hexagon AHW water consist of small hexagonal water clusters around 43Hz which penetrates easily into the cellular membrane and helps to carry in nutrient and toxins out of the cells.
By energizing clean water with natural energy from the ceramic beads in the Hexagon Hydrogen Alkaline Water Filter, the energy is retained through the water memory and transferred to the body cells, and “activates” our cells.
A Natural Food to Help Beat “The 3 Deadly HIGHs” – HIGH Blood Pressure, HIGH Blood Sugar & HIGH Triglyceride Levels!
In general, there are two types of buckwheat, the common buckwheat ( Fagopyrium Esculentum Moench) and the Tartary Buckwheat (Fagopyrium Tataricum Gartner). Tartary Buckwheat is also known as ‘Golden Buckwheat’.
Golden Buckwheat is touted as the ‘King of Cereals’ and in recent years has gained much attention from nutritionists and medical doctors, because of its high nutritional content. In Korea it is known as the ‘Food for Fairies’, in Japan as ‘Longevity Buckwheat’ while in Germany it is called ‘Oriental God’s Herb’. Buckwheat is naturally low in fat and high in protein, fibre and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium. Tartary Buckwheat is also rich in rutin, quercetin and other nutrients that are good for health.
Rutin or Vitamin P is unique to Buckwheat and Golden Buckwheat has 5 times more of it than common buckwheat. Rutin is a natural antioxidant with powerful properties that can help neutralise free radicals that may cause damage to the body. Rutin can help to prevent colon cancer and act as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and tumour inhibitor.
Recent studies have shown that rutin may provide the health benefits listed below:
1 ) Inhibits Platelet Aggregation
Rutin can inhibit the activity of phosphodiesterase to prevent platelet aggregation. It helps to thin the blood and improve blood circulation. It also protects platelets from oxidation thus helping high blood pressure patients to achieve and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
2 ) Strengthens & Improves Blood Vessels
Rutin inhibits the activity of Lipoxygenase & Prostaglandin synthesis enzyme to prevent the weakening of blood vessels, especially the capillaries. At the same time, it also expands blood vessels to reduce the risk of bruising, NF tumours and haemorrhoids. It can also help to lower blood pressure and triglycerides and prevent strokes.
3 ) Prevents Diabetic Complications
Aldose Reductase is an enzyme found in the eyes and other parts of the body. It can help to convert glucose into sorbitol (sugar alcohol). Excessive sorbitol that accumulates around the eyes and nerve cells can cause retinopathy and neuropathy (severe eye & nerve problems which often happen to diabetes patients). Studies also showed that flavonoids (including rutin) can help to prevent and inhibit Aldose Reductase activity to prevent or delay the risk of diabetic complications.
4 ) Maintains Skin Youthfulness
Rutin helps the body to absorb and utilise vitamin C. This can help to prevent cells from free radical damage and to maintain collagen levels which results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Golden Tartary Buckwheat contains more soluble fibre than other grains. It has 4 times more soluble fibre than paddy, 2.7 times more than wheat, 1.1 times more than corn and 1.6 times more than common buckwheat. Dietary fibre fills you up and provides a sense of fullness which can help to prevent overeating for successful weight loss. It also promotes healthy bowel movement easing constipation and eliminating toxic build-up in the gastrointestinal system.
Soluble fibre can help to reduce the accumulation of bile juice which helps to prevent gallstone formation. The American Journal of Gastroenterology reported that consuming high amounts of dietary fibre can reduce the risk of gallstones! Glucan-based dietary fibre may also help to prevent sugar spikes after meals (good for preventing diabetes). Dietary fibre can also help to control the body’s cholesterol levels.
One more unique nutrient found in Golden Buckwheat – D-Chiro-Inositol, plays a similar role to insulin in reducing blood sugar levels effectively.
