Southeast Asia is home to the mangosteen plant, Garcinia mangostana. The fruit is either dark crimson or purple. The pulp of the apple is sweet and somewhat acidic.
Mangosteen is used for serious gum infections, obesity, muscle growth, diarrhea, and many other diseases, although the majority of these claims are not well-supported by science.
Mangosteen has been used to treat diarrhea and skin diseases. Mangosteen is thought to have potent antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-microbial, and anti-malarial properties, according to recent scientific investigations. Mangosteen is low in calories and offers a variety of necessary vitamins, minerals, and fiber. These nutrients are crucial for maintaining a variety of bodily processes.
Mangosteens can thrive in shade as well. Young plants might not be able to thrive in direct sunlight, unlike fully established trees. Therefore, keep your plants in the shadow or in a location where they receive filtered or indirect sunlight. The plants require up to 13 hours of light exposure every day on average.
