Synsepalum dulcificum (commonly known as miracle fruit) is a plant native of West Africa and known for its berry that, when eaten, causes foods to alter its taste, specially turning sour foods such as lemons and limes into sweet taste. This effect is due to the ability of the miraculin to activate the sweet perception and inhibiting the tongue’s taste of sour flavors while maintaining a neutral pH in the mouth. This effect lasts until the protein is washed away by saliva, usually in 90 to 120 minutes
The fruit is commonly used as a novelty, but it is also valuable for medicinal and dietary purposes. This berry has a very low sugar content preventing the alteration of the glycemic index specially in diabetic people. Miracle Fruit can help diabetics and dieters naturally reduce or even eliminate their sugar intake without sacrificing their favorite foods or drinks. It is not an artificial sweetener. It is an all-natural way to enjoy sweet flavors and keep blood glucose levels in the target range without the risk of overloading with unwanted carbohydrates.
Dr. Mike Cusnir, conducted a clinical trial using fresh Miracle berries in patients with taste alterations. The clinical trial consisted in helping patient with a very common side-effect produced by strong medications (bitter and metallic tastes within the mouth). The berries mask these unpleasant types of taste, motivating users to eat better and therefore obtaining the necessary nutrition. By helping taste perceptions, patients show significant improvement on their quality of life. The results of this study have been presented in scientific meetings and covered by major news outlets such as CNN, The New York Times, The Miami Herald, and Univision.
OR Taste contains 100% pure miracle fruit powder that will help with abnormalities in taste perception by masking unpleasant food taste (like metallic flavor). People with taste alterations will be able to enjoy a simple meal after using OR-Taste, and this can help improve quality of life, reverse unwanted weight loss, and help speed recovery.
OR Taste has a mild, sweet taste. The chewable tablets coat the tongue with a special glycoprotein called miraculin. The miraculin binds to the taste receptors altering the brain’s perception of taste. Sour becomes sweet, bitterness is diminished, and metallic off-putting flavors are masked entirely. While OR Taste does not offer a cure for any disease, it can provide a great deal of comfort when food is not tasting its best.
OR-Taste is the world’s first miracle fruit supplement designed by a doctor. Take one or two before each meal, you will be able to enjoy food again.
