Mangosteen ensures adequate blood flow to all organs of the body, especially the heart, by dilating the blood vessels. This hypotensive quality of mangosteen is very valuable for remedying the symptoms of high blood pressure, such as severe headache, stress and palpitations. No, mangosteen does not increase blood pressure. In fact, it has hypotensive properties that can effectively control high blood pressure.
Taking mangosteen together with medications that also slow blood clotting could increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
