Compared to other mangosteen products, Super ORAC mangosteen powder has an unmatched ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) content of 1500-1800 umole TE/g, says the company. Mangosteen comprises a range of antioxidant xanthones, most of which are concentrated in the fruit's pericarp. Each of these chemically beneficial molecules has its own specific quality, and no other known plant offers the same quantity and variety of xanthones as mangosteen does, says the firm. The whole fruit is used to produce the fruit powder with exceptionally high ORAC content. NP Nutra (Gardena, CA), 310/694-3031, www.npnutra.com.
