5 Essential reasons to try Bitter Melon

1 THE OKINAWAN DIET

Bitter melon (also known a gōyā) is a staple ingredient in the traditional Okinawan diet, and may help explain why the Okinawan population enjoys some of the world’s longest lifespans.

 

2 IT’S SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO HELP REGULATE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS.

Researchers have identified a range of chemical compounds (namely charantins, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids) within the bitter melon plant, all of which contain anti-diabetic and hypoglycemic effects.

 

3 IT MAY HELP REDUCE CHOLESTEROL AND TRIGLYCERIDES.

Evidence from animal and in vitro studies have shown that bitter melon extracts can produce decreased levels of lipids, cholesterol and triglycerides. Researchers attribute these effects to the plant’s ability to induce lipid and fat metabolizing gene expression.

 

4 IT CONTAINS UP TO 15 ACTIVE PHYTOCHEMICALS.

Phytochemical consumption is associated with a decrease in risk of several types of chronic diseases because of their antioxidant and free radical scavenging effects. The bitterness of the fruit itself comes from the phenols, flavonoids, isoflavones, terpenes, and glucosinolates, which makes it an excellent source of antioxidants.

 

5 BITTER MELON HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF OVER 140 CLINICAL AND OBSERVATIONAL STUDIES.

Focus topics include its effects on diabetes, blood sugar regulation, obesity, dyslipidemia, lipid production, inflammation, respiratory ailments and more. You can find many of the published articles and study results here.
