Hello friends, Watch► is BetterGourd Can Really can # DureDiabetes? | Here is the proof | #DiabetesCare #ABCHealth:
Bitter gourd, also known as African cucumber, has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicines as a treatment for diabetes.
The bitter melon analysis indicates that it is very high in antioxidants, a protein that seems to be active against tumor cells, enzymes and fatty acids. It also contains charantine, which appears to be responsible for its effects on blood sugar, vicin and a substance that appears to mimic insulin: polypeptide p.
Main evidence that bitter melon can benefit diabetics:
There are two main lines of evidence that bitter melon could be useful in the treatment of diabetes. These two lines of evidence are that bitter melon can lower blood sugar levels and triglyceride levels in the blood. These studies indicated that this can happen in cells, animal studies and in some human studies.
At this point, the evidence is limited, but very promising because bitter melon seems to be safe in clinical studies and because of the long-term history of bitter melon as a food, and as a traditional medicine for diabetes.
A recent article compared the effect of bitter melon and metformin in newly diagnosed T2D patients and found that bitter melon (at 500, 1000 or 2000 mg per day) was effective in reducing blood sugar levels. However, metformin at 1000 mg / day was slightly more effective than either dose of bitter melon.
In this study, bitter melon seeds were removed and the pulp dried and standardized to contain 0.04-0.05% charantin in 500 mg of dry powder.
How do diabetics add bitter melon to beat diabetes?
You can include the bitter melon as food, juice or in a smoothie. It is often available in grocery stores of Asian or African specialties. As a food, it can be fried, boiled, steamed or roasted. The skin should be peeled and the seeds removed after cutting the bitter melon along. After removing the seeds, cut the bitter melon into pieces and cook. It can be a side dish or added to soups and stews.
If it is too bitter, after cutting into pieces, drain in boiling water for 2-3 minutes and let it drain on a towel for about 10 minutes, then cook it as planned. You can also make bitter melon juice by removing the peel and seeds and cutting them into pieces. Then, place the pieces in a juicer or add them to your favorite shake recipe. You can add ginger, stevia or lemon to reduce bitterness or simply add some fruits such as apples or pears.
You can also find bitter melon tea in some specialty stores. There are no recommendations for bitter melon tea, but 2-4 cups of tea per day are often recommended
