On a similar note,we have tried, and are still taking Mangosteen juice. The company Zango sells the whole fruit processed in a fruity bottle, but Costco and Whole Foods also carry the juice. It is supposed to be anti-inflammatory in nature because of its Zanthones. I figure it can't hurt, and with the other vitamins, it might just help a bit. Tastes great, but is expensive. No cure yet....
