Bitter melon is a vegetable used widely in Asian countries as both a food and a medicinal. The variety used in our formula is known as Momordica charantia (or “Ku Gua”) a tropical vine that belongs to the gourd family and prized for the many beneficial properties of its “fruit,” leaves, and vines.
This formulation uses all of the key parts of the plant and is highly concentrated in order to maximize the yield of all three target proteins.
Bitter melon is thought to be helpful for stabilizing blood sugar in Ayurvedic Medicine. It is used for maintaining healthy blood glucose levels, glucose uptake, glycogen synthesis, and glucose oxidation that are already within normal levels.
Bitter melon is rich in vitamin C, a micronutrient involved in disease prevention, bone formation, and wound healing, vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes skin health and proper vision, and folate, which is essential for growth and development, as well as smaller amounts of potassium, zinc, and iron.
Bitter melon is also a good source of catechin, gallic acid, epicatechin, and chlorogenic acid – powerful antioxidant compounds that can help protect the body’s cells against damage.
