Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum) is a berry born on a small shrub native to Ghana, Africa. The fruit contains a unique glycoprotein called miraculin that binds to the taste receptors altering the natural flavors of food in such a way that undesirable flavors are masked and the desirable flavors are greatly enhanced.
The effects of the miraculin have been shown to mask the overwhelming metallic taste food can get after chemotherapy that causes extreme nausea and can lead to patients developing an aversion to eating and unwanted weight loss..
Doctors agree that chemo patients are able to enjoy a simple meal after using a Miracle Fruit, and this can help improve quality of life, reverse unwanted weight loss, boost nutrition, and help speed recovery. Miracle fruit plants in Kerala is also available now.
