High Standard Product Quality Control
|Randomized, double‐blind, placebo‐controlled clinical trial|
|Subject||60 participants – 30 men and 30 women (age 18 – 60 years old)|
|Dosage||A daily single dose (245 mL) of placebo (fructose liquid) or Verve energy drink (mangosteen- based formula)|
Figure 1: Plasma ORAC levels of mangosteen and placebo groups after intervention.
Figure 2: Plasma C- reactive protein concentrations of mangosteen and placebo groups before and after intervention.
|Functions||Mangosteen-based formula significantly increases antioxidant capacity and possesses anti-inflammatory benefits。|
Rich sources of antioxidants
|Subject||Fresh mangosteen purchased in a retail store in Bangkok, Thailand|
|Parameters analyzed||Antioxidant activity|
|Subject||Obese patients (n = 122)|
|Group||4 groups including placebo, and 3 different doses of test product|
|Dosage||XanGo Juice™: 3, 6 or 9 oz twice daily
(XanGo Juice™ contains a whole fruit puree of the mangosteen in addition to other fruit juices)
|Parameters analyzed||Level of inflammatory proteins (HS-CRP)|
Table 1: Mean HS-CRP level before and after mangosteen juice supplementation.
|Functions||Mangosteen Juice demonstrated an ability to reduce inflammation (as measured by HS-CRP), at all 3 dosages while the placebo group showed a small increase in the amount of inflammation.|
Supports blood sugar control
|Prospective randomized, controlled, parallel group study|
|Subject||Obese insulin resistant patients (n = 20)|
|Dosage||Mangosteen supplement 400 mg once daily|
|Parameters analyzed||Insulin levels, (homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance) HOMA IR%, Glucose level|
Figure 1: Glucose metabolism markers. (A) Insulin levels decreased significantly in the treatment group compared to control at 26 weeks; (B) HOMA IR% change went in the same direction in favor of the mangosteen group that showed a frank improvement in insulin resistance; (C) glucose levels did not significantly change in any of the studied arms.
|Functions||Mangosteen could potentially represent an appealing treatment of insulin resistance, given its favorable cost/benefit ratio.|
Reduces fats accumulation, improves antioxidant and anti-inflammation activities
|In vivo experiment|
|Subject||Healthy Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 40) fed with/without high fat diet for 10 weeks|
|Dosage||Supplementation with GMF in obese rats (200 mg/kg, 400 mg/kg and 600 mg/kg) via oral gavage|
|Parameters analyzed||Plasma lipid profile, antioxidant enzymes and pro-inflammatory markers|
Table 1: The effect of mangosteen flesh supplementation on plasma glucose and lipid profile in rats. *NC = normal control; OC = obese control
Table 2: The effect of mangosteen flesh supplementation on plasma antioxidant enzymes and total antioxidant status.
Table 3: The effect of mangosteen flesh supplementation on inflammatory markers.
|Functions||Supplementation of Garcinia mangostana flesh may help in reducing body weight and has the potential to ameliorate the biochemical changes of the high fat diet-induced obesity in rats.|
