Product description

#Puteria_lùcuma the golden fruit of the Incas... A health dynamite since ancient times. The antioxidant capacity of lucuma extracts was found to be high. Catechin and epicatechin, present in these extracts, may contribute to the observed antioxidant capacity (Ma, 2004). A recent study found that lucuma aqueous extracts have the highest concentration of phenolic compounds (11.4 mg g – 1 dw) compared to other Peruvian fruits and high α-glucosidase inhibitory activity. The latter could suggest lucuma as a food-based treatment to complement the management of diabetes ( Silva Pinto et al. , 2009 ). The growth of Staphylococcus aureus is inhibited by lucuma extracts (Lazo, 1990).
