BITTER MELON BENEFITS

B

Bitter melon is a tropical vine and belongs to the gourd family. The oblong-shaped fruit is green, has a unique bumpy appearance and an equally distinct sharp flavor. Also known as Momordica Charantia, the bitter gourd originally came from India before it was introduced to China and then traveled to other parts of Asia. Some of the excellent health benefits of bitter melon include an incredible source of fiber and key nutrients like Vitamin C, folate, and Vitamin A.

While bitter melon has long been used to alleviate stomach and other GI issues, it is also known to regulate blood sugar.* Though research is ongoing, there is evidence to suggest that some active ingredients in bitter melon act like insulin in the body. Like most other fruits and vegetables, bitter melon is low in calories and high in fiber content. According to a number of animal studies and small-scale studies on humans, bitter melon is purported to improve weight management and cholesterol levels. Finally, test tube studies in laboratory settings suggest that bitter melon may have very impressive anti-cancer properties.

Bitter melon has been used in numerous Asian cuisines for a very long time and is actually quite easy to prepare. One of the easiest ways to prepare the butter gourd is to cut it length-wise, scoop out and discard the seeds, cut the halves into thin slices, and create a stir-fry. If you want to dress up the fruit a little more and do something fancy, bitter melon can also be made into a curry, soup, or stuffed with other ingredients and baked.

We will admit, the flavor of bitter melon is not for everyone. But that’s okay! If you do not prefer the taste, supplements can still provide impressive health benefits.
