Why mangosteen juice for arthritis? Mangosteen, beyond it's antioxidant and vitamin content, seems to have one very special feature. Though studies haven't had time to be substantiated, research is showing that mangosteen has very strong anti-inflammatory properties, making it the perfect drink to take if you have arthritis. But beyond arthritis, natural anti-inflammatory substances have a wide range of uses. There are whole diets centered around eating as many natural anti-inflammatory foods as possible. Anti-inflammatory diets are just plain good for your overall health. Proponents of anti-inflammatory diets claim that such diets reduce the risk of heart disease, keep existing heart conditions in check, reduce blood pressure, and last but not least, help control arthritis. In reality how can you eat a stready diet of anti-inflammatory foods all of the time, unless ofcourse you live in a anti-inflammatory supermarket.
