Were you looking for information about Mangosteen? Mangoesteen is a common misspelling of mangosteen.
 
Mangosteen contains several medicinally active components that may be effective at treating and preventing a number of health problems. Some of the possible health benefits of mangosteen include treating or preventing conditions such as arthritis, cancer, and eczema. However, there is not enough evidence at this point to determine whether mangosteen is safe or effective for any use. Therefore, before using mangosteen medicinally, it is probably a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider. Even though mangosteen is a "natural" product, it does not mean it is safe for everyone or free of side effects.
