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 -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."

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

Another untested, tasty, Neutral.

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....
