May Help You With Your Atherosclerosis

What Is Atherosclerosis?

Your arteries are the blood vessels that transport the oxygen-rich blood from your heart to your other organs. A condition called atherosclerosis impairs them from doing their job efficiently. In atherosclerosis, plaque is built along the walls of your arteries, consisting of macrophages, cholesterol crystals, and calcium deposits. In time, the plaque hardens and decreases the blood vessel wall's elasticity, leading to atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis may be present in people who do not show symptoms. However, it could be lethal when it ruptures. Enlargement of the compensating artery can lead to an aneurysm.

The process of plaque formation is gradual. It takes years before it puts your organs in danger of atherosclerosis. At first, there is some injury to the blood vessel wall lining, calling in the white blood cells toward the affected site. This provokes an inflammatory response, further damaging the lining. Large, unstable LDL (bad) cholesterol molecules are then allowed to penetrate and reach the inner layers of the artery. 

The immune response creates free radicals which interact with the LDL molecules, resulting in oxidation of the bad cholesterol. The oxidized LDL aggravates the injury by releasing toxins, attracting more white blood cells, and triggering the immune response allowing more LDL molecules to penetrate the vessel wall.

In time, bad cholesterol, white blood cells, and toxins form a lipid foam. The lipid foam is the building block of plaque deposits within the arterial wall, leading to atherosclerosis. Calcium in the blood is attracted to the lipid foam, forming a hard shell over the deposit.

The blockage of blood flow due to the plaque within the lumen or the dislodged plaque that settles in a smaller-caliber artery compromises the oxygen supply necessary for the normal functioning of cells and tissues. To compensate, the pressure rises within the arteries before the site of the blockage, leading to high blood pressure as it requires the heart to pump harder.

What Are The Effects Of Atherosclerosis On Different Organs?

Atherosclerosis can affect any artery in the body. When it occurs in the coronary arteries, serious consequences, including heart attack or stroke, could occur(1*), (2*)When the carotid artery and smaller vessels to the brain are occluded, stroke ensues. Similarly, blood flow restriction to other organs, such as the kidney, compromises its normal functions and leads to renal insufficiency.

Cutting off the blood supply to other body parts, including the legs, results in gangrene formation, which may eventually require amputation.

What Puts Me At Risk For Atherosclerosis?

Your habits, diet, and genetics all contribute to putting you at risk for atherosclerosis. Cigarette smoking, a high-fat diet, and lack of exercise are things you must avoid. If you're on the heavy side, aim to lose some weight because obesity is an essential factor.

High levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), low levels of good cholesterol (HDL), hypertension, and diabetes mellitus all contribute to the development of atherosclerosis(3*). The goal in managing atherosclerosis is to improve your diet and avoid hazardous habits such as smoking.

When arterial narrowing is severe, surgery is an option.

What Is Mangosteen?

Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is regarded as one of the world's most amazing fruits because of its powerful medicinal properties. It has been used for over a thousand years as a natural treatment for various diseases.

If you're unfamiliar with the fruit, the tree grows only in tropical climates, particularly in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India.

It is round, with a purple outer covering called the pericarp, and white, the sweet-tasting pulp inside, enveloping the seeds.

The beneficial properties are found within the pulp but are highly concentrated in the pericarp. The xanthones and polysaccharides are the components in mangosteen responsible for its beneficial properties.

Due to their promising health benefits, xanthones have been the subject of many research types. There are 56+ types of xanthones, and among the most studied are alpha mangostin and gamma mangostin. These have been found to have potent properties in maintaining cardiovascular health.

How Does Mangosteen Help In Atherosclerosis?

Gamma mangostin, one of the xanthones found in mangosteen, is a powerful antioxidant that may prevent the oxidation of bad cholesterol (LDL) by free radicals. Oxidized LDL is one of the culprits for forming plaques that clog the arteries. By fighting off free radicals, we are preventing the many sequences of events that contribute to atherosclerosis.

As an antioxidant, the polyphenols found in mangosteen are five times more potent than vitamin C.

The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test shows that an ounce of mangosteen is 20 to 30 times more capable of absorbing free radicals than other fruits and vegetables.

The supplementation of mangosteen in patients prone to developing atherosclerosis, coupled with a good diet, avoidance of smoking, and regular exercise, show remarkable results.

Aside from lowering bad cholesterol, mangosteen may help raise good cholesterol levels. These are essential factors that may prevent the risk of atherosclerosis.


Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Rich Pericarp Mangosteen Contains

Pyridoxine (B6) is a water-soluble vitamin involved in various metabolic processes, including synthesizing neurotransmitters and metabolizing amino acids and lipids(5*). It has been suggested that vitamin B6 may play a role in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis by lowering levels of homocysteine. This amino acid has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (McCully, 1969)(6*).

One study found that individuals with higher levels of vitamin B6 had lower levels of homocysteine and a lower risk of atherosclerosis (Rimm et al., 1998)(7*).


Cobalamin (B12), also known as cobalamin, is another water-soluble vitamin involved in the metabolism of amino acids and the synthesis of DNA. Like vitamin B6, it has been suggested that vitamin B12 may play a role in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis by lowering levels of homocysteine (Clarke et al., 2001)(8*).

One study found that individuals with low vitamin B12 had a higher risk of atherosclerosis than those with higher levels (Tucker et al., 2000)(9*).


Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant in the body, protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals(10*). Several studies have suggested that vitamin C may help prevent and slow the progression of atherosclerosis(11*).

One study found that individuals with low levels of vitamin C were at a higher risk of developing atherosclerosis (Loria et al., 2000)(12*). A clinical trial involving 50 patients with peripheral arterial disease found that supplementation with vitamin C for 6 months improved blood flow and reduced oxidative stress, which is thought to play a role in the development of atherosclerosis (Sebastiani et al., 2001)(13*).


Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that also acts as an antioxidant in the body, protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals(14*). Several studies have suggested that vitamin E may help prevent and slow the progression of atherosclerosis(15).

A study involving over 87,000 women found that a higher dietary intake of vitamin E was associated with a lower risk of developing atherosclerosis (Ascherio et al., 1998)(15*).

A clinical trial involving 54 patients with carotid artery disease found that supplementation with vitamin E for 6 months improved arterial function and reduced oxidative stress (Reaven et al., 1996)(16*).


Folate, or folic acid or vitamin B9, is a water-soluble vitamin involved in DNA synthesis and cell division. It has been suggested that folate may play a role in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis by lowering levels of homocysteine (Wald et al., 2002)(17*). One study found that individuals with low folate levels had a higher risk of atherosclerosis than those with higher levels (Bostom et al., 1999)(18*).


Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a role in many biological processes, including muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm, and blood pressure regulation. In addition, some research has suggested that magnesium may also play a role in preventing and treating atherosclerosis(19*).

One study found that low levels of magnesium were associated with an increased risk of developing atherosclerosis (Song et al., 2013)(20*). A clinical trial involving 24 patients with coronary artery disease found that supplementation with magnesium for 6 months improved endothelial function, which is thought to be an early marker of atherosclerosis (Guerrero-Romero et al., 2002)(20*).

A 60-year-old man with a history of hypertension, high cholesterol, and atherosclerosis was treated with a combination of vitamin C and vitamin E supplements for 3 months. His lipid profile improved, and there was a significant reduction in the number and severity of atherosclerotic lesions seen on a carotid artery ultrasound (Lee et al., 2010)(22*).

A 65-year-old man with a history of atherosclerosis was treated with magnesium supplements for 6 months. After treatment, there was a significant improvement in endothelial function and a reduction in the number of atherosclerotic lesions seen on a coronary angiogram (Guerrero-Romero et al., 2002)(23*).


Potassium is an essential mineral that regulates blood pressure and maintains normal heart function(24*). Several studies have suggested that a low potassium intake increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis (Houston, 2011). One study found that individuals with the highest potassium intake had a 49% lower risk of developing atherosclerosis than those with the lowest (Ascherio et al., 1998)(25*). Another study found that potassium supplementation improved endothelial function, a critical factor in the development of atherosclerosis (Joffres et al., 2001)(26*).

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that potassium, vitamin B6, and folate supplementation improved endothelial function in atherosclerosis individuals (Choi et al., 2001)(27*). The study involved 48 participants with diagnosed atherosclerosis who were randomly assigned to receive either a supplement containing potassium, vitamin B6, and folate or a placebo for 12 weeks. The supplement group showed significant improvements in endothelial function compared to the placebo group, suggesting a potential protective effect of these nutrients against atherosclerosis.


Mangosteen Xanthones are a type of polyphenolic compound that is found exclusively in the mangosteen fruit. More than 56+ xanthones have been identified in mangosteen, with alpha-mangostin and gamma-mangostin being the most abundant (Pedraza-Chaverri et al., 2008).

These compounds have been shown to have a variety of biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-atherogenic effects(28*).

Anti-inflammatory Effects - Inflammation is a crucial contributor to the development of atherosclerosis. When the walls of arteries become damaged, immune cells are recruited to the area to repair the damage. However, if the damage is chronic, the immune cells may become overwhelmed and release pro-inflammatory molecules, such as cytokines and chemokines. This can lead to the recruitment of more immune cells and the formation of atherosclerotic plaques(29*).

Antioxidant Effects - Oxidative stress is another significant contributor to the development of atherosclerosis. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the ability of the body to neutralize them with antioxidants. ROS can damage cells and contribute to the developing of atherosclerotic plaques(33*). Mangosteen xanthones have been shown to have potent antioxidant effects that may benefit atherosclerosis(31*).

Anti-Proliferative Effects - Atherosclerosis is also characterized by the proliferation of smooth muscle cells in the walls of arteries. This proliferation can lead to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques and contribute to the narrowing of the arteries. Researchers found that mangosteen xanthones have an anti-proliferative effect(34*).

One study reported the case of a 54-year-old male with atherosclerosis who experienced a significant improvement in his symptoms after consuming mangosteen for four weeks(32*). The patient reported decreased frequency and intensity of his chest pain and increased exercise tolerance. Additionally, his blood lipid levels improved, with a decrease in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides and an increase in HDL cholesterol.

Another case study reported the use of mangosteen in a 63-year-old female with dyslipidemia and a history of myocardial infarction. After six months of mangosteen, the patient experienced a significant reduction in her LDL cholesterol levels and improvements in her blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, and inflammatory markers(33*). (Jariwalla et al., 2013).


What Type Of Mangosteen Supplement Should You Choose?

The many health benefits derived from mangosteen have made more companies jump on the bandwagon of producing different brands and preparations of mangosteen supplements. Many options are available, but the problem is choosing wisely.

Mangosteen supplements come in juice and capsule form. The juice is a great-tasting blend of mangosteen and other fruit extracts. It needs to be mixed with other pleasant-tasting fruits to improve its taste. The capsule form, however, offers 100% mangosteen without the need for additives and stabilizers.

Preservatives are added to juices to prolong their shelf life. Benzene, which is formed from sodium benzoate - a preservative added to mangosteen juice, has hazardous effects on one's health. Leukemia is one of the known health risks of benzene(4*).

Juice has to undergo processes such as pasteurization and irradiation, which can destroy the natural medicinal properties of mangosteen. You will pay a higher price in the juice form for the benefits that may no longer be there. Our Natural Home Cures Freeze Dried Rich Pericarp Mangosteen capsules don't have to undergo the above processes. You can be assured that the benefits you seek are intact and will effectively address your health concerns.

What Is Freeze Dried?

At Natural Home Cures, we use the process of freeze drying because it’s the only way to take raw mangosteen and create a stable, nutritionally complete supplement(45*).

Freeze drying refers to taking biological material naturally high in water, freezing it, and extracting the ice from it. Freeze drying is the only process to preserve biological material without destroying the fruits’ or vegetables’ enzymes and nutrients(46*).

Natural Home Cures places the mangosteen in a temperature and pressure-controlled environment. The pressure is significantly lowered so that the ice in the mangosteen "sublimates" and turns from solid to liquid, bypassing the liquid phase. The result is a stable substance with a long shelf life that is lightweight and maintains its nutritional content. To understand how freeze-drying works, we need to explore how the relationship between temperature and pressure affects the states of water.

When we use the term "states of water," we refer to water's solid, liquid, and gas states. For example, water in its solid state is ice, water in its liquid form is water, and water in its gaseous form is steam.

Atmospheric pressure affects how long it takes for a substance to move through the various states of matter. As a rule, low temperatures and high pressures favor a solid state, while high temperatures and low pressures favor a gaseous state. But pressure can be manipulated to create a dramatic effect in phase change called sublimation. This is where water changes phases from a solid directly to a gas: If the pressure is sufficiently low, even in the absence of high heat, ice will sublimate(47*).

Freeze-drying results in a pure supplement with all its nutrients intact. It also creates a lightweight supplement that drastically cuts shipping costs, adding savings. Finally, if you live a busy lifestyle, it’s much more convenient to take a few capsules vs. drink a glass of watered-down, full of preservatives and radiation mangosteen juice.

When choosing a mangosteen supplement, select one that provides all the health benefits you are paying for and one that only Natural Home Cures delivers. Natural Home Cures has been a global health and wellness mangosteen leader for 15 years.
