Xanthones in Mangosteen

Information I found on Xanthones:

Xanthones, highly active plant phenols found in a limited number of plants, are among the most powerful antioxidants known to science. With 210 known xanthones in nature, over 40 have been discovered in mangosteen. Of all the known xanthones, the "beta mangostin" compound is one of the most studied and researched. What's remarkable is that it's not just the inner flesh of the mangosteen, but the whole fruit, that represents the single greatest known supply of these tremendously beneficial xanthones found anywhere in nature. Xango's proprietary formula utilizes all the xanthone rich components of the mangosteen fruit including the pericarp (62 mg. beta mangostin per ounce), and brings a wealth of incredible benefits to every system in the body.
