Miracle Fruit

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, taste changes.

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 the view that effort, together with safe natural remedies is the best way to go. You simply cannot get any more natural than the miracle fruit berry.

The official name of the Miracle Plant is Sideroxylon Dulcificum Synsepalum but it is also known as Miracle Berry, Magic Berry, or even Flavor Berry. The plant was first documented by a 1725 explorer - Machais during his expedition in the plant's native West Africa. He noted that the tribesmen chewed the berries before meals.

In its natural habitat, miracle plant grows as a shrub, reaching heights of up to 20-feet. (Cultivated plants however will tend to grow no higher than ten feet). The plant is an evergreen that produces 2 crops each year of small red berries with white flowers over many months. Miracle fruit plant seeds are approximately the size of coffee beans.

Miracle fruits have been used in their native country of West Africa, without any adverse side effects being experienced by its consumers. In recent years, increasingly more people in a number of other countries have also started eating the berries without reactions.
