(MORMORDICA CHARANTIA) Bitter melon, also known as African cucumber, bitter gourd, bitter squash, and karela, traditionally grows in tropical areas, including parts of the Amazon, east Africa, and the Caribbean. It is cultivated throughout South America and Asia as a food and medicine. Like all bitter tasting foods, bitter melon stimulates the digestive system, so its used for various stomach and intestinal disorders such as; constipation, ulcers, and dyspepsia. The fruit has been confirmed to contain three active substances with anti-diabetic properties including charantin, which has been proven to have blood glucose-lowering effect, vicine and a insulin like compound known as polypeptide-p. These chemicals can work together or individually to reduce blood sugar levels.  Bitter Melon juice daily helps overcome type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is caused due to the inability of a cell to absorb the sugar in the blood due to the ineffectiveness of the insulin produced. The absorption of sugar occurs due to the activation of AMP- activated protein kinase in the cells. Bitter melon activates these kinases due to which the absorption of sugar increases and aids in bringing diabetes under control. More than just a diuretic, bitter melon has tons of healing properties for such ailments like heart disease, boost immune system, acne, liver disease, respiratory disorders, cancer, weight loss, and hair loss.
