Miracle Fruit for Cancer & Chemotherapy Patients

Scientific research has shown that eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables can reduce a person’s risk of developing chronic diseases including some types of cancer.

Plant derived polyphenols, other antioxidants, and phytonutrients as well as fiber have several disease preventing properties including anticancer properties.

MiraBurst miracle berry is a natural taste modifier that helps patients enjoy other healthy superfruits, foods, and drinks that have cancer-fighting properties.

In addition, the berry itself is a superfruit which is rich in antioxidants and other essential phytonutrients that also have cancer-fighting properties.

Are taste disturbances due to chemotherapy affecting your eating?

A recent clinical trial in Europe concluded that habitual consumption of miracle berry improves food taste perception, nutritional status, and quality of life in malnourished cancer patients receiving antineoplastic treatment.

Taste Changes During Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy can negatively affect taste buds and reduce saliva production which is key to tasting food flavors. Patients may have dry mouth and develop taste disturbances including “metal mouth”. When this happens, food may seem to lack flavor or taste more salty, bitter, or metallic.

These distortions often lead to food aversions during meals and can lead to reduced food intake, risk of malnutrition, weight loss, and ultimately a decrease in morale affecting quality of life.

Malnutrition negatively impacts quality of life and oncologic treatment. It is associated with increase in complications and toxicity of treatment.

Miracle berry (Synsepalum dulcificum) has been found in clinical trials to be beneficial in masking and managing chemotherapy associated taste disturbances leading to improvement in food taste perception. This improvement translates into increased food intake, thereby improving nutritional status and mitigating associated risks.
