Karela Bitter Melon benefits for diabetes

Karela / Bitter Melon / Bitter Gourd

Karela or Bitter Melon (Momordica Charantia) has long been known for its effectiveness in reducing glucose levels in the blood and urine. There have been several studies on Karela demonstrating its hypoglycemic properties. Karela contains charantin, peptides and alkaloids that lower blood sugar. Karela is bitter in taste and Gurmarin - a polypeptide present in Karela suppresses the neural response to sweet taste stimuli. Karela is also rich in vitamins such as potassium (twice that found in bananas) , calcium ( twice that of spinach) and beta carotenes (twice that of broccoli). In addition to being very beneficial in controlling diabetes mellitus, Karela is very good for the liver and is a powerful detoxification agent.
