The Aratiles fruit or Kerson fruit in English resembles American cranberries.
It’s a fruit found in several tropical countries.
A student scientist from the Philipines did a wonderful discovery.
She discovered that the aratiles fruit possibly has anti-diabetic components.

Aratiles grows abundantly in their backyard and by the roadsides of her hometown, Iloilo City.
This gave her the idea of studying the fruit’s antioxidant and anti-diabetic properties.
She hopes her research could lead to the development of a cost-effective alternative cure for diabetes.
Isabel’s research won as Best Individual Research in Life Science during the Department of Education’s 2019 National Science and Technology Fair.
Her research – and six other entries – also represented the Philippines in the 2019 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Due to her excellence in Science and Technology, she is among the pioneer recipients of the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation Young Scientist Award.
