Mangosteen Reduces Fat Cell Inflammation and Insulin Resistance

A new mangosteen study1 shows that the xanthone antioxidants are able to regulate important gene signals in fat cells, reducing adverse inflammation and insulin resistance (by stabilizing adiponectin Protein hormone that modulates metabolism including glucose and fatty acid catabolism. High levels are associated with low body fat. levels).
It is now well understood that when you become overweight there is a combination of low grade inflammation, leptin resistance, and insulin resistance. There are many nutrients that help to balance and offset this problem – and mangosteen is one of them.
The xanthones of mangosteen, like tocotrienol Specialized form of vitamin E. Powerful antioxidant showing positive benefits for cholesterol, cardiovascular, neurological health and cancer risk reduction. vitamin E, are unique in that they are able to readily attach to the inside of cell membranes where they not only act as antioxidants but also as helpful communication regulators of a cell’s activities. In this study it was found that mangosteen could favorably influence the key cellular gene signal, NF-kappa B, so that inflammation did not occur. It was also able to stabilize the fat hormone adiponectin Protein hormone that modulates metabolism including glucose and fatty acid catabolism. High levels are associated with low body fat. – which is vital to preventing insulin resistance.
