Thailand Finds Health Benefits for Mangosteen

May 12, 2009: 06:15 AM EST
Thai scientists say they have found that mangosteen extracts can boost the body's immune system and cure some (unspecified) diseases without side effects, adding that they have developed extracts for use in food as well as in health and beauty supplements. An export drive is being launched and a private company, Asian Phytoceuticals, has agreed to buy 2,000 metric tons of the fruit this year, which will be increased tenfold to 20,000 metric tons in 2010, from farmers in a number of outlying regions.
