Comparative analysis of α-mangosteen in developed nutraceutical with market sample
Background Information: Mangosteen or Garcinia mangostana L. belongs to the family Guttiferae and its fruit, whose pericarp contains a family of tricyclic isoprenylated polyphenols referred to as xanthones. Xanthones possess anti-oxidant, anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic activities.rnObjectives: Quantitative analysis of α-mangosteen content in the developed nutraceutical product and comparing with purchased market sample with the validated HPLC method. rnMaterials & Methods: High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to characterize the α-mangosteen content of developed nutaceutical product. rnResults: The content of α-mangosteen, 8.689% was conformed in the sample which is developed as the nutraceutical product and in market samples A & B was 8.97% & 9.04% respectively.rnConclusion: It has been estimated there is minimum loss in the developed nutraceutical product when compared with market Sample A & B which conforms the quality of the product.
