Chatsworth, CA-- Renaissance Herbs, Inc. has added XanoMax™ to their line of innovative botanical extracts. XanoMax™ is an extract of the fruit “mangosteen” (Garcinia mangostana) — renowned in Southeast Asia as the “queen of the fruits.” The product is standardized by HPLC to mangostin, one of a family of active compounds found in the fruit known as xanthones. Three grades are available: Water soluble 1% mangostin, water soluble 10% mangostin and a cosmetic grade standardized to contain 40% mangostin.
XanoMax™ was designed as a superior antioxidant and immune tonic. Tests of XanoMax™ 10% revealed an ORAC value of 2,574, extremely high compared to other fruits. In vitro tests have shown that the constituent xanthone “Gammamangostin” is a more potent antioxidant than vitamin E. Tests also show that the related parent compound, mangostin, inhibits the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol and the activity of PGE2, COX-1, and COX-2 (prostaglandin E2 and cyclooxygenases-1 and -2), key factors involved in inflammatory conditions.
