Mangosteens – we all love them, both for the one-of-a-kind succulent taste of the flesh and the vibrant purple color of the rind. My kids love them. I love them. I do not know of anyone who does not love them. But I hate peeling them! It’s so troublesome to get to the flesh of the mangosteen. Sometimes, I would accidentally stain my clothes with the bright purple color from the rind. And it is so time-consuming to eat mangosteens, for you have to labour over yanking the hard rinds, just to eat a few segments from each fruit. For this reason, I seldom buy mangosteens. I wish that peeled mangosteens will soon be available in the market. But for now, we can drink the goodness of mangosteen juice from a bottle.
One of the mangosteen juices with the highest grades available in the market is the Ostania Premium Mangosteen Amrita juice. And I am so thankful that the company that manufacturers Ostania mangosteen juice, Furley Bioextracts have so kindly sent me 3 bottles to try! Thank you Furley!!
We have always discarded the hard purple rind of the mangosteen but did you even know that the rich purple mangosteen skin is where all the goodness is? Yup, it’s true and Ostania mangosteen juice is composed of the purple mangosteen skin, as one of the ingredients. The mangosteen skin / rind is said to be packed with xanthones, anthocyanins and polyphenols — potent antioxidants that have been scientifically proven to be beneficial.
Furley Bioextracts has now made the Ostania Mangosteen Amrita – its mangosteen drink with skin and all, available in certain pharmacies in the country. The Ostania Mangosteen Amrita is the only health beverage in the market to be tested and validated by the National University of Singapore (NUS). Every single one of Furley’s Ostania Mangosteen Amrita products have been validated to have a 14186 ORAC. This ORAC score reflects that the Ostania is higher in antioxidants than some of the other well-known superfoods such as blueberries, acai berry and raw cacao, the purest form of chocolate said to have the highest source of antioxidants of all foods and the highest source of magnesium.
Ostania Mangosteen Amrita contains the whole mangosteen fruit, including the skin, and is combined with apple, roselle, acai berry, grape and pomegranate. With no added sugars or colouring, it is suitable for the whole family and is a health drink that anyone, including diabetics can indulge in.
Some of its benefits include boosting the immune system, improving the bowel system, easing allergy symptoms, helping skin conditions, maintaining eye health, stopping fatigue and fighting harmful free radicals responsible for ageing and inflammation.
At only RM49.90 a bottle, the Ostania Mangosteen Amrita is a very affordable health supplement. You can buy it cheaper at RM43.35 if you buy 3 bottles.
Ostania Mangosteen Amrita is a great tasting beverage. You can drink it neat from the bottle but it’s best served with a 1:1 dilution with water or ice. It tastes best when chilled. You can even make ice popsicles for your little ones to enjoy. Or add it into your homemade fruit smoothies, like what I am doing now 🙂
This is the orange + green apple + fresh coconut water + Ostania Mangosteen Amrita juice smoothie that I made yesterday – so refreshing! To give this smoothie an extra kick, blend it with ice cubes – perfect thirst quencher on a sweltering day.
Mangosteen Amrita comes in an attractive reusable aluminum bottle. It is of export grade and is sold in other countries such as New Zealand.
