Monk Fruit Extract Drops — 1.76 Fluid Ounces
Monk fruit, or Lo Han Guo, or Longevity Fruit, is a small green gourd native to southern China. It was named after the monks who first cultivated it centuries ago, to sweeten their teas. The health benefits of the fruit have been well-known in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for millenia. One of its names, Longevity Fruit, comes from the famed long life of monks who routinely drank Lo Han Guo sweetened tea and were known for living longer than others. Today, this sweet little secret is making its way into the western mainstream.
Monk fruit is 150-250 times sweeter than table sugar, has zero calories or carbs and does not raise blood glucose levels. It is hypo-allergenic (almost no one is allergic to it, which is rare in the plant world.) Most other so-called, natural, alternative sweeteners (Xylitol, Stevia, etc.) can cause side effects like gas, bloating, or allergic reactions. And some artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Acesulfam, Saccharin, and Equal are controversial (and very likely health damaging to some extent - although a case can be made for sugar being even more damaging). In the case of monk fruit extract sweeteners, there are no known side effects, ONLY PLUSes.
The Food and Drug Administration Trusted Source has deemed monk fruit “generally recognized as safe (GRAS)” for everyone, including pregnant women and children. Even so, because monk fruit is relatively new to the mass market, there are no scientific studies on the effects of long-term use.
Potential Health benefits of Monk Fruit
Please note that these are potential benefits, not yet scientifically agreed upon benefits. Further research and studies are needed:
- Safe for diabetes — Monk fruit gets its sweetness from natural compounds called mogrosides. It’s great for persons with elevated blood sugar because it doesn’t increase blood sugars.
- Promotes weight loss — Monk fruit has no calories, carbs, or fat, so it may be a great option for anyone watching their waistline. You can save substantial calories and carbs by simply substituting monk fruit sweetener for table sugar throughout your day and making treats with Monk Fruit.
- Anti-inflammatory properties — According to a 2011 study, monk fruit has been used in traditional chinese medicine for centuries to make hot drinks that relieve sore throats and reduce phlegm. The fruit’s mogrosides are said to be anti-inflammatory.
- Improves energy production — by optimizing both the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) phosphorylation and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase processes (IE, makes more efficient the mitochondrial electron transport chain).
Potential Risks of Monk Fruit
- Allergic responses to Monk Fruit are rare. But, there is a risk of allergic reaction with any food. Monk fruit is a member of the Curcurbitaceae family (also known as the gourd family), which includes pumpkin, squash, cucumbers, and melons. Your risk of monk fruit allergy is higher if you’re allergic to other gourds.
