Bitter Melon is a diabetes home remedy


#1

The antipsychotics we take can raise blood sugar levels, so I thought this might be interesting. It turns out a vegetable called bitter melon has anti-diabetic properties and can lower your blood sugar levels naturally. I don’t know the exact science behind this but bitter melon is supposed to be similar to the drug Metformin. Bitter melon also suppresses the appetite somewhat.

I drink raw bittermelon juice every once in a while for its health benefits. As the name implies, bitter melon is really bitter, so mix the bittermelon juice with unsweetened apple juice, otherwise you can get sick to your stomach.

Good to know, thanks Tanaka. I have diabetes and take Metformin. Maybe I’ll give it a try.

I juice my bitter melon in a juicer. The bitter melon juice is really bitter, so mix it with unsweetened apple juice or unsweetened pear juice.
