The liver is an important organ in regulating blood
sugar. During chronic hepatitis, many patients develop diabetes and
hypoglycemia. Bitter Melon Capsule has been successfully used to regulate
tatarium (bitter buckwheat)
charantia (bitter melon)
· The two constituent herbs contain active ingredients that
can help lower and stabilize blood sugar level. Both have been used for
diabetes in Asia and Central and South America for centuries. In China and
Southeast Asia, bitter melon is a commonly consumed vegetable, a testament
to its safety as an herbal remedy.
· Recently a capsule containing bitter melon and bitter
buckwheat has been used in the U.S. and the clinical outcome of its
blood-sugar-normalizing effect has been proven to be reliable. It takes about 2 weeks
to lower or normalize blood sugar level using Bitter Melon Capsule.
Continued use maintains the normalized level.
· A 1981 clinical trial in England found that extracts of
bitter melon fruit significantly improved glucose tolerance in Type II
(adult-onset) diabetics. Further testing using a water-soluble extract of
bitter melon found that the extract "significantly reduced blood
glucose concentrations during oral glucose tolerance tests." Animal
studies with normal and diabetic rats and rabbits have shown bitter melon
to possess a hypoglycemic (lowering of blood sugar level) effect. Extract
of bitter melon can also stimulate the pancreas to secrete insulin, so it
can help Type II diabetics to produce more insulin.
· Insulin-like molecules in bitter melon extract have
physiological effects similar to those of insulin, indicating that it has
beneficial effects for Type I (juvenile-onset) diabetics, who do not
secrete insulin. Some of the
active ingredients of bitter melon can prolong the effects of insulin.
Thus the blood-sugar-regulating effects of the herb are gradual and
steady, exactly what is necessary to prevent blood sugar swings from low
to high and back again. Comparative studies conducted in China found that
bitter melon's blood sugar reduction effects were similar to and stronger
than those of tolbutamide (D860), a pharmaceutical used to stabilize blood
sugar in Type II diabetics.
· Bitter buckwheat is used as an absorption medium for bitter
melon extract. Bitter buckwheat has also shown hypoglycemic,
blood-lipid-reduction, and anti-oxidant effects. When used concurrently,
bitter melon and bitter buckwheat show a synergistic relationship.
Each bottle contains 100 capsules.
