Bitter Melon Benefits
Blood Sugar Support - Bitter melon is known around the world by various names such as bitter gourd, bitter squash, or karela. It is a common remedy to promote healthy blood sugar levels. In people with higher blood sugar levels, it is sometimes due to the inability of their cells to absorb the sugar in the blood caused by insufficient insulin or due to the development of resistance to insulin. In either case, the body's cells become unable to absorb sugar due to the ineffectiveness of the insulin produced. Moreover, the absorption of sugar occurs due to the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase in the cells. Bitter gourd may activate these kinases and the absorption of sugar increases. And hence aids in supporting healthy blood sugar.
Blood Pressure Support - Another common use of bitter melon is to promote healthy blood pressure. Scientific studies have shown ingesting bitter melon may help to support systolic blood pressure. Systolic blood pressure is the first number in the blood pressure ratio and measures the force of the blood found in the arteries while the heart is beating.
Healthy Cholesterol Support - Several studies have shown bitter melon to support healthy cholesterol levels. Chemicals in bitter melon are thought to affect the activity of an enzyme that breaks up fats from the diet so they can be absorbed by the body. As a result, less cholesterol may be absorbed and more may be eliminated from the body.
