What is Bitter Melon?

Used in Asian cuisine for generations, bitter melon is a tropical, vine-ripened fruit that grows in South America, Asia and the Caribbean. It has long been used in folk wellness practices to help with indigestion and overall health and well-being.**

Today’s research, however, emphasizes a different bitter melon benefit: The fruit helps to maintain blood sugar already within normal range. Intriguingly, this modern research-backed application is mirrored by tradition: Chinese wellness herbalists have used the bitter fruit to assist with blood sugar problems for centuries. While its exact mechanisms of action are unknown, bitter melon is believed to have multiple compounds that influence blood sugar, including some compounds that appear to optimize glucose uptake and other compounds that bear a striking molecular resemblance to insulin.**

In addition to supporting healthy blood sugar levels within the body, the bitter green fruit supplies antioxidant compounds that help to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals. Research has also shown that the melon’s seeds supply two proteins that may help to optimize and reinforce the immune system. The bitter fruit has been suggested, through its influence on blood sugar levels, to assist with appetite and healthy weight management as well.**

Bitter Melon Supplements

Bitter melon supplements are most often found in capsule form, but may also be available as an ingredient in herbal teas. These supplements have become increasingly popular as a larger segment of the population seeks out natural ways to help balance and maintain healthy blood sugar levels.**
