Bitter Melon Tea May Have BG-Lowering Qualities for Diabetics
Nutrition advisor’s note: Blood glucose monitoring is recommended when using any product that can cause hypoglycemia.
Ampalaya (Momordica charantia), also known as bitter melon or bitter gourd, is a medicinal herb that is traditionally used as a home remedy for various illnesses. For diabetics, it has been demonstrated to have blood glucose-lowering qualities, according to studies published in a 1999 issue of the Bangladesh Medical Research Council Bulletin.
Ampalaya as a natural remedy for diabetes is most widely used in the Philippines, where the government promotes it solely for the disease. Following its use there and in many parts of Asia, it was introduced in Europe under the brand Charantea.
In Europe, Charantea is sold in 20,000 pharmacies and 5,000 health food stores. Charantea is now available to Americans in tea and 500-mg capsule form, manufactured by FulLife Natural Options, Inc.
