Mangosteen Products – General Dosage Guidelines to Get Maximum Benefits

In this Page:

The guidelines below are used based on what is suggested by Dr J. Frederic Templeman in the book “The 90-Day Mangosteen Action Plan”.  The dosage is based on mangosteen juice supplement and is intended to serve as general guidelines only.  A caution before you use it, you should check the recommended dosage on the label when you buy the mangosteen supplement since different brands of mangosteen supplement may have variability in the content and purity.  After all, all the mangosteen products are not created equal!

Is Mangosteen Overdose Exist?

There was a study done on rat to study the effects due to overdose of mangosteen juice. The rats were given huge amounts of the product which would be almost impossible for humans to consume in a day. The results show that there are no adverse changes on all the vital organs at the microscopic level. Hence, it is reasonable to conclude that it is near impossible to have mangosteen overdose.

Mangosteen Products - Recommended Dosage Guide

Here is the recommended dosage based on different conditions, please note that individual optimal dosing may be different and you may adjust the amount to meet your needs.

Before you use mangosteen juice, shake the product well to distribute the sediment evenly.

  • Best to take with before, during or within half an hour after meals. Mangosteen is best to take with food because it is fat soluable and needs to have fat in order to be utilized by the body. Or you can take some almonds to go with it.
  • Study has showed that by dividing the serving into 3 times a day is much more effective than taking it 1 time a day. This is due to the half-life effect of mangosteen. The half-life is a period where half of the elements of mangosteen remain in the blood and tissue. Let’s say if the half-life of mangosteen is 5 hours, in the first 5 hours, half of the elements in the blood or tissues will be gone, and if no more mangosteen product consumed after this, the remaining half of the elements will be completely gone in the next 5 hours. To get maximum benefits, it is best to consume a few times rather than 1 time throughout the day.
