I Love Mangosteen Fruits!

It's surprising but I would admit, my first encounter with mangosteen fruits occurred in Cambodia when I first arrived here April of 2007. I guess mangosteen can also be found in other tropical countries and Philippines is just one of them but I don't know why I never encounter this fruit when I was still in the Philippines.'s the season for mangosteen again in Vietnam and since I am staying at the boarder, I can always get that chance to buy this fruit at a cheaper price. Currently, it's priced at $1 per kilo.

I used to buy this now around 3 x a week. I'm taking advantage of the cheap price as I know that the price will later increase. I really love it's taste. In fact, I considered it as one of the most delicious fruits around. It has a hard covering that comes in a dark purple color. Since, I'm always eating this every now and then, I get curious on what are the benefits of mangosteen and my readings led me to a discovery that this mangosteen fruit is packed with essential nutrients. It is a good source of Vitamin C and Vitamin B complex and also contains substantial amount of minerals like potassium, manganese and magnesium. This also has no saturated fats and cholesterol but rather rich in dietary fibers.

With it's cheap price when in season, it's delicious taste and nutritional benefits, who would not love to get indulge eating this fruit?
