Mogrosides in Monk Fruit extract may be able to protect tissues in the body from the damage of free radicals, a major source of Inflammation. This is a perfect contrast to the inflammatory response that is caused by sugar consumption. We came across one study and actually found that this antioxidant effect was able to provide protection for the insulin-secreting cells of the pancreas and therefore improve insulin response. This would then further provide anti-inflammatory effects through blood sugar regulation.
Sounds pretty good to me !!
There are also cells within our bodies that are responsible for initiating inflammatory responses when needed. This Inflammation is called a histamine response that is mediated by cells called mast cells. This is the same mechanism that is responsible for nasal congestion and that puffy feeling you may get in your face during Pollen Season.
Unlike sugar, which may feed unwanted microbes in the intestinal tract, monk fruit compounds actually exhibit beneficial anti-microbial properties that may help maintain proper bacterial balance. Extracts from the fruit and leaves have been shown to inhibit candida, streptococcus, and bacteria responsible for gum disease in the mouth. So …. No more Bad breath!!
We use a touch of Monk Fruit Extract Powder to every batch !!
