Hi, can you tell me the nutritional value and benefits of the colorful mangosteen? Thanks!

Mangosteen is usually sold canned in juice in the United States. Half a cup of canned, sliced, and drained mangosteen is low in fat and sodium, and saturated fat and cholesterol free.  It also contains xanthones, a powerful antioxidant, which protects your body from free radicals.
