 What is Monk Fruit Extract                                               

Monk fruit extract, also known as luo han guo, is native to the forests of southern China. The fruit itself looks like a melon but is actually a gourd. Monk fruit grows on vines and is about the size of a lemon.Hundreds of years ago, Buddhist monks cultivated monk fruit for medicinal purposes. Even today, folks in southern China use monk fruit extract to treat sore throats, colds, and intestinal ailments.

monk fruit extract is comprised of substances called mogrosides. Mogrosides have antioxidant properties (which is a good thing). And along with being an antioxidant, mogrosides appear to have anticancer properties and may have the ability to prevent diabetes complications. In a study with mice,mogrosides lowered oxidative stress, improved blood glucose, and lowered lipid (blood fat) levels.

What is stevia?

Stevia is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar. Commercial stevia sweeteners are made from a compound of the stevia plant,

which is an herb from the Asteraceae family.

What are the benefits of stevia?

1.Stevia sweeteners don’t have calories and are a good choice for people trying to lose weight.

2.They generally don’t raise blood sugar levels, so they’re a good sugar alternative for people with diabetes.

3.They’re available in liquid, granule, and powder forms.

Monk fruit and stevia are nonnutritive sweeteners. This means they have little-to-no calories or nutrients. Both are marketed 

as natural alternatives to sugar. 

This is true to a point. Monk fruit is typically not as refined as stevia, but may contain other ingredients.
