Enhanced stem cell function from monk fruit produces anti-aging effects
06/26/2019 // Michelle Simmons // Views

A study carried out by researchers from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College assessed the anti-aging effects of monk fruit (Siraitia grosvenorii) in a mouse model. The findings of the study were published in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine.

  • Monk fruit, also known as luo han guo in Chinese, is a local fruit in China that is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat gastritis, sore throats, and whooping cough.
  • In this study, the researchers fed mice with monk fruit for 10 months.
  • The results showed that mice fed with monk fruit exhibited a slower aging process.
  • This effect occurred due to the enhanced function of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), which are the stem cells that give rise to other blood cells, caused by monk fruit intake.
  • In addition, monk fruit consumption increased the ability of HSCs to self-renew.
  • It also maintained quiescence, reduced senescence, and improved the function of HSCs, slowing the aging process of mice.

Based on these results, the research team concluded that the consumption of monk fruit can enhance stem cell function, leading to a slower aging process.
