Bitter Melon Powder (Organic), 100g

Bitter Melon (Mormordica Charantia)- also known as Karela. Originally from Africa, the use of this herb is now widespread and established across Asia and the Carribean. It is a nutritious herb rich in vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and dietary fibre. It is also rich in minerals- iron, beta-carotene, calcium and potassium. Thus, it can be taken as a food item, juice or used as a herb- medicinally.

As a herb it has been used for a variety of conditions from psoriasis to poor athletic performance and diabetes. It is, however more commonly used today for diabetes, pre-diabetes metabolic syndrome, and weight loss. It helps to regulate blood sugar, promote normal glucose metabolism and improve digestion. There is some evidence to support its uses in this context when taken as a herb or juice.
