Were you looking for information about Mangosteen? Mangostine is a common misspelling of mangosteen.
Although mangosteen is claimed to help treat or prevent conditions such as cancer, arthritis, and tuberculosis, more research is needed to determine whether it is effective and safe for any use. It is known, however, that mangosteen does contain several medicinally active compounds, so this substance may have several medicinal properties (such as antioxidant activity and antihistamine properties). Prior to taking the product medicinally, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
