Is mangosteen recommended on the BTD?
If so, is it okay for type A? Thanks

mangosteen is better suited for As.
also a MAO inhibitor, like S J Wort, in a way.......

Quoted Text
Mangosteen has 43 Xanthones in comparison with
ST John's Wort which might have contain one or
two Xanthones.


Quoted Text
"The rind of partially ripe fruits yields a
polyhydroxy-xanthone derivative termed
mangosteen, also ß-mangostin. That of fully
ripe fruits contains the xanthones, gartanin,
8-disoxygartanin, and normangosteen. A
derivative of mangosteen, mangosteen-e,
6-di-O-glucoside, is a central nervous system
depressant and causes a rise in blood pressure."

it's a MAO (monoamine oxidase)  depressant

Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana - Clusiaceae)
Though in their native habitats other Garcinia sp. will be called "Mangosteen" as well.

For the reasons listed in the information that Lola posted mangosteens may not be a good idea for a type O to use.

Here are some other threads where mangosteen has been discussed, which I found by using the search feature:
Say it isn't so!!!
Mangosteen or Mangostan....
