Miracle Fruit - is this the way
forward for dieters and diabetic womens health?
A new super food, - miracle berry fruits could be set to revolutionize
not only the the dieting industry but also the diabetic health
food industry as well. (Check out the video below).
While miracle berries or miracle fruit has been known to the food industry
since the early 1970's, more recently they have become increasingly
popular in food tasting events, namely 'flavor tripping
parties'. Party-goers simply chew on one very small miracle
berry before consuming very sour or bitter foods such as
limes, lemon fruit, vinegar etc., to experience sweet, pleasant,
Miracle fruits work in an ingenious way! The berry, which is
rather tasteless, contains an active 'glycoprotein molecule
with trailing carbohydrates, called miraculin'. Consuming the
fleshy part of just one berry, cause the molecule to bind to the
tongue's tastebuds, thus causing bitter and sour foods to taste
sweet. Take a look at this miracle berry health video!
The effects of the West African miracle berry lasts any where from
half an hour to up to two hours.
Just think what this can achieve for dieters, people who
are diabetic and those of you who find drinking water for health
and beauty bland! Miracle fruit is not a sweet,
nor sweetner but is the result of a naturally safe chemical
reaction. The taste effect will largely depend on what is consumed
after eating the berry.
Attempts are underway to create an artificial miracle berry
sweetener for people who are diabetic and one company is at
present pursuing the development of a purified version of the
protein with the aim of getting it approved.
So, what about the safety aspects of using miracle berry fruits!
Here at Health Womens Healthy Living Goals, we have always held

effort, together with safe natural remedies is the best way to go.

"Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his
so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never
stand in favour compared with the products of nature, the living
cell of the plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the
mother of all life" (T A Edison)
