Studies done with diabetic mice showed that monk fruit extract may even reduce blood sugar levels. The mice had lower oxidative stress and blood sugar levels and increased levels of good cholesterol.

ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

The mogrosides, specifically mogroside V, that is found in monk fruit, have been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Over a thousand years ago:

In remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment and ascension through meditation and pure living.

In this primeval forest, the monks discovered a rare superfood prized for its sweetness and its ability to raise chi, or life energy. This sacred fruit was named monk fruit and was used for centuries to increase chi and well-being, earning it the nickname “The Immortals’ Fruit.”

We still harvest monk fruit for Lakanto in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environmental methods.
