5 Nutritional and Health Benefits of the Miracle BerryAndrea Sedillo
The MiraBurst miracle berry, scientifically known as Synsepalum dulcificum, grows on a shrub native to Ghana and has been used by Ghanaians for centuries to alter the taste of their food. This miracle fruit has the ability to make sour or tart fruits, food, and drinks taste sweet. Miraculin, a protein contained within the pulp of the miracle berry, binds to receptors on the taste bud and get activated when the pH level drops in the presence of sour foods. Miraculin then activates the sweet receptors and supercharges them to turn any sour or tart fruits, foods, and drinks to sweet-tasting without any added sugar or sweeteners at all for up to 60 minutes.
Beneficial Health Attributes of the Miracle Berry
Besides the incredible taste modifying ability, the miracle berry itself has some very beneficial attributes of its own. The MiraBurst miracle berry is a superfruit that contains antioxidants and essential phytonutrients to help manage blood sugar levels and enrich your overall diet
A High Concentration of Flavonoids and Phenolic compounds
The pulp of the berry has been shown to be rich in flavonoids and phenolic compounds. Flavonoids and phenolic compounds are subgroups of polyphenols that can help prevent development of chronic diseases when consumed consistently over time. In clinical studies, it is been shown that the miracle berry can help prevent oxidative stress. The compounds found in the miracle berry offer antioxidant qualities, lowering levels of free radicals and reducing stress on organs. They may also help improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin.
Contains Many Important Vitamins
The miracle berry contains vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin K. Vitamin C stimulates white cell production which is the body’s first defense against infections and pathogens. Vitamin A aids vision health, supports a healthy immune system, bone health, and reproductive systems. Vitamin E supports vision, reproduction, and the health of blood, brain, and skin while also having antioxidant properties. Vitamin K supports blood clotting and bone health.
Anti-Colon Cancer Attributes
Miracle berries have also been shown to have some anti-cancer effects on colon cancer cells according to a study conducted at De LaSalle University in the Philippines.
Reduce Insulin Resistance
One of the most important health attributes of the miracle berry is its ability to reduce insulin resistance for diabetic patients. MiraBurst miracle berries pair well with sour and tart drinks such as lemon water with apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has been shown in clinical studies to improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin and lemon water helps prevent blood sugar spikes after meals. Recent research conducted in Taiwan has reported that the polyphenols found in the miracle berry may have the ability to improve insulin sensitivity in diabetics and decrease plasma glucose.
Masks Metallic Taste for Chemotherapy Patients
In some patients, miraculin is capable of masking the metallic taste of food that is often associated with chemotherapy which can lead to an aversion to eating and subsequent weight loss. Doctors have embraced the ability of miracle fruit to potentially improve the quality of life for chemotherapy patients, enabling them to get the nutrition they need for recovery.
