Benefits of Luo Han Guo Fruit
Sweetfruit Drops come from the Chinese fruit called Luo Han Guo (Momordica grosvenori), also known as "Monk Fruit". Luo Han Guo has been favored as an herbal remedy for colds, coughs, sore throats, and gastorintestinal disorders, and used in Asian herbal medicine as a blood purifier. That is not the only benefit of Luo Han Guo, however. Luo Han Guo fruit is a natural sugar subsitute.
Natural Sugar Substitute
Luo Han Guo fruit contains a compound called mongrosides, and these substances make the fruit 300 times sweeter than sugar (sucrose). In addition, the mongrosides contain hardly any calories, are low glycemic, and are handled differently than carbohydrates. Mongrosides do not cause insulin levels to rise, and they are not broken apart to produce energy, meaning they don't add extra pounds.
Luo Han Guo Glucoside (Mogroside) is a stable non-fermentable substance with high sweetness and low heat. It can be used to sweeten all kinds of drinks and food as a substitute for sugar. It is a ideal sweetening agent for those who need food with small amount of heat (calories) and want to use less sugar.
Additional Benefits of Luo Han Guo Fruit
Luo han guo is a very sweet fruit and a superb Lung tonic used to relieve lung congestion and to cool the lungs, thus "clearing heat" such as one might experience on a hot smoggy day.
In addition to its natural sweetening characteristic, Luo Han Guo fruit has exhibited anti-hyperglycemic effects. In studies, Luo Han Guo fruit was shown to decrease blood sugar, total cholesterol, triglycerides, and to increase "good" cholesterol levels.
Sweetfruit (Lou Han Gup) may also have an antihistimine action, making it a tasty option for allergy relief.
Sweetfruit is being widely researched because it appears to be a potent immune potentiator. Sweetfruit is safe and has no known side effects. It may be used by children and adults.
Luo han guo was named after the luohan monks, Buddhist practitioners, from the steep mountain region of Southern China. It is also called "the longevity fruit" because residents of the steep mountain fields in the Guangxi Province of China where it grows are reported to live to be 100 years old or more. Luo Han Guo, Monk Fruit, the Longevity Fruit, or Sweetfruit- whatever you call it, you are sure to love it.
