The project aims to determine if an extract of mangosteen fruit helps to reduce symptoms of depression in those with Bipolar Disorder.
It is believed that the symptoms of bipolar depression may be partially caused by increased levels of inflammation and oxidative stress (an imbalance in the levels of antioxidants) in the brain. There is evidence to suggest that the rind of the fruit from the Mangosteen tree contains bioactive compounds that may be beneficial in reducing oxidative stress, which may in turn reduce the symptoms experienced by those with bipolar depression.
Anyone 18 years or older with a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder and currently experiencing low mood.
