Abstract

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF MANGOSTEEN (GARCINIA MANGOSTANA) PERICARP

Divya Raichu Jacob, Nora Vigasini* and Priya Iyer

ABSTRACT

Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is a fruit that has had its origin from the South East Asian countries. Traditional healers have found its antibacterial potency in curing various ailments. After consumption of the fruit pulp, the pericarp is regarded as waste but this contains a lot of bioactive components which have unique antibacterial effect. In this study, the anti bacterial activity of mangosteen pericarp against specific respiratory tract and food borne pathogens like Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi and Escherichia coli was assessed. It was found that mangosteen pericarp exhibited moderate to excellent antibacterial effect against all the pathogens at smaller concentrations like 5 μl, 10 μl and 15μl. This proves its efficacy as a natural antibacterial agent in curing various diseases.

Keywords: Bioactive, Agar well diffusion, Concentration, Pathogen, Zone of Inhibition, Subculture, Sterile.
