Benefits of Bitter Melon
Support of Weight Loss:
Bitter Melon is low in calories but contains high fiber content, so its optimal consumption helps to lose weight. Fiber has a slow passage through the digestive tract and helps the consumers to feel full for longer times thereby reducing appetite and hunger. Results of some scientific studies have also shown that bitter melon helps to lose weight by fat burning.
Reduced Cholesterol Levels:
Higher cholesterol levels cause a buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries and the heart has to work harder to pump blood to the body. Various animal-based studies have revealed that optimal and regular use is helpful to reduce cholesterol levels and support heart health.
Reduced Cancer Risk:
A test tube-based study has shown that the extract is significantly helpful in killing cancer cells of the nasopharynx, lungs, breast colon, and stomach.
Reduced Blood Sugar:
Bitter Melon Powder is being used by indigenous communities to treat blood sugar levels. Results of a three-month study focused on 24 adults has shown that daily-based consumption of 2000 mg is effective in reducing hemoglobin A1c and blood sugar level.
The extract and juice have potential wound-healing properties and are greatly effective in treating ringworm, scabies, and psoriasis. Its effectiveness can be enhanced by the addition of one teaspoon of good quality and contaminant-free lime juice.
Parasitic infections are causing major health risks across the globe and are affecting the gastrointestinal system of both livestock and human beings. Regular and optimal use of Bitter Melon is helpful in fighting against parasites through the active involvement of glycoprotein, tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, and saponins. These compounds fight against parasites by reducing their entry into human and animal bodies, reducing the survival capacity of new larvae, and minimizing their migratory capabilities.
