“Fruit of Medicine, the natrual sweet fruit, for general well being, and some even claimed for its slimming effect, with regular consumption of it.”
Luohan guo (Medicine term as Siraitia grosvenorii), in Chinese, 罗汉果, is a natural sweet fruit which often used as medicinal herbs by Chinese physician.
Luohan guo made into form of beverages, especially herbal tea, commonly sold in many Chinese herbal shops in Singapore. We do not usually use the raw green fruit to cook herbal tea, but get the dried one which has turned into dark brown fruit with hard thin shell. This low-caloric ‘fruit of medicine’ helps to detoxify body, and hence, some even claimed for its slimming effect, if consume it on regular basis. I drink it regularly mainly to maintain general health so as to eliminate summer heat in the body which may lead to feverish illnesses.
