Miracle Fruit and Antioxidants

Antioxidants have been known to help prevent diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. These substances have the natural ability to counteract oxidative stress and delay, or even prevent, cell damage. Oxidative stress is caused by free radicals, which can promote the progression of several serious conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Fruits and vegetables are a great source of antioxidants, making them an important part of an everyday diet. However, many people find it hard to eat a hearty amount of fruits and vegetables due to their taste.


Fortunately, MiraBurst™ can help people eat a more antioxidant-rich diet. Because miracle berries contain a glycoprotein called miraculin, they are able to temporarily alter taste perceptions. After eating a miracle berry product from MiraBurst™,like our easy-melt Miracle Fruit Tablets, sour and acidic foods will taste sweet!

For people that don’t necessarily like the taste of antioxidant-rich fruits like strawberries or grapefruits, MiraBurst™ can be a helpful addition. The miraculin in the miracle berry can make these fruits taste sweeter, providing a more enjoyable eating experience. MiraBurst™ products also work well when combined with salads – simply use vinegar in the salad instead of a salad dressing, and top off the salad with lemon juice or use freshly squeezed lemons.

Antioxidants in Miracle Fruit

Not only can our miracle berry products help you eat more antioxidant-rich foods, but they also contain antioxidants themselves! A study conducted by the USDA found that miracle berry’s skin and pulp contain high amounts of antioxidants, flavonoids, and phenolics, all substances that aid in the protection against disease.
