Mangosteen Juice for Inflammation
I’ve recently come across information about the body’s natural inflammatory response and how that can get out of hand, causing internal inflammation throughout the body that can impact health in a wide range of ways.
The symptoms of chronic inflammation are so numerous that they just about include every condition from Asthma to Vaginitis but one of the most common, persistent symptoms is Joint pain and stiffness. Even though joint stiffness and joint pain is a rather noticable symptom of internal inflammation, there are other less noticable and more serious repercussions to having an overactive inflammatory response, including heart stress and organ stress. In other words, internal inflammation might be a contributing factor underlying just about any condition, rather than being just a symptom of that condition.
If you think about it, anything that is swollen and inflamed cannot function as well as that same limb or organ without the inflammation.
Diets that are way out of balance with Omega 6 fatty acids vs. Omega 3’s tend to produce more inflammation than the body needs so looking into dietary changes that correct that imbalance are important, and that’s for another article.
Additional Mangosteen Juice Benefits:
In this little health tip, I’d just like to mention Mangosteen Juice for helping the body with internal inflammation. Of course, that’s not the only health benefit to Mangosteen Juice. It has a wide range of vitamins and minerals, for example, including B vitamins (1,2 and 6) and vitamin C as well as potassium, calcium and other minerals. Mangosteen Juice is also very high in antioxidants and Xanthones, which show promise for reducing cholesterol and atherosclerosis.
However, it is the effect Mangosteen has on inflammation that has most impressed me personally. I actually don’t see that talked about as much as the other qualities and, to me, it may be the most important benefit. If you suffer with joint stiffness, why not check out Mangosteen Juice?
Other natural anti-inflammatories include tumeric (which I’ve also used and found effective), boswellia, bioflavinoids, ginger, MSM (I’ve used and found effective), glucosamine (which I’ve also used and which did not agree with me at all) and Omega-3’s.
Of course, there are prescription drug anti-inflammatories too including NSAIDs like Motrin and Advil and and COX-2 inhibitors like Celebrex and Vioxx but these are not without serious potential side effects and risk.
There is a also a medically recognized blood test called C-reactive protein test, or CRP for short, that can measure levels of inflammation in the body and diagnose internal inflammation so it’s wonderful to have a medical test that can definitely confirm this condition.
