Heard of Gac? It’s a bright-red super fruit from Vietnam (aka Momordica cochinchinensis) that is widely cultivated and consumed for its many benefits. They include improvements in vision, reproductive function, immunity, skin condition, prostate health, and heart health. Also known as Chinese bitter cucumber, it is packed with beta-carotene, lycopene, and zeaxanthin. Working in synergy, these antioxidants boost the immune function by increasing production of white blood cells and improve sperm production. Gac fruit contains roughly ten times more beta-carotene than carrots.
