This Chinese monks fruit will help you fight diabetes, cholesterol and many other diseases.
Many know that this fruit is a healthy replacement for sugar, and that has positive effects on the reduction of cholesterol level. However, the latest research indicates that this fruit can even cure cancer.
It should be noted that Japanese researchers in the early 21st century, discovered that certain substances in the fruit inhibit the growth of cancer cells in mice.
Since then, numerous studies have been carried out in favor of the fruit:
A Chinese study in April last year found that a compound named mogroside V in the Lu Han Guo fruit induces apoptosis of cancer cells and causes a stop of their cell cycle.
A study from 2015 found that the compounds mogrol and biometabolite, has anticancer properties and to reduce the growth of cells in leukemia.
A study from 2011 found that a variant of lu han guo fruit, called Momordica grosvenorii, has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
The Chinese study from 2008 has shown antidiabetic properties and found that mogroside V has antioxidant properties.
It appears that anti-cancer properties in these fruits have chemical substances called mogrosides. These include mogrol, mogroside V and 11-oxo-mogroside.
Mogrosides are compounds that give the sweet taste of the fruit, as well as being responsible for the destruction of cancer. If we consider the fact that researchers have demonstrated that a high intake of sugar causes the spread of cancer, lu han guo is a fruit that can slow the cancer, as well as to cure him.
Researchers state that mogrosides belong to the group of glycosides compounds, which are present in bitter melon, which proved effective against cancer and regulate the immune system.
Otherwise, the first ever discovered glycoside amygdalin was in 1830.
Amygdalin is a strong substance that destroys a cancer that is present in the cores of apricot kernel oil.
Researchers are not yet sure whether the healing property related to glycosidic group, but one thing is certain: lu han guo is the best low-calorie natural sweetener that can still be found in the market and has a very positive effect on diabetes, which can indicate that act against the cancer.
