Bitter Melon General Information
Bitter Melon grows in the tropical parts of Asia, East Africa, the Caribbean and South America. It is a green cucumber shaped fruit with gourd like bumps all over it. It looks like an ugly cucumber. The fruit should be firm and it tastes very bitter. All the parts of the herb are used, seeds, leaves, vine and the fruit. The fruit is the safest and most prevalent part of the plant used for medicine. For centuries it was an Asian folk remedy for treating diabetes. The Philippines called it Ampalaya or Amargozo, and even though it is an ugly bitter-tasting vegetable, it is rich in iron and vitamins A and C. According to Philippine folk medicine, the more bitter the taste, the more medicinal value it has.

Bitter Melon Uses & Scientific Evidence For
It has been suggested that Bitter Melon has anti-tumor and antiviral actions. MAP 30 is a protein found in Bitter Melon that is believed to have multiple functions that could be beneficial in treating HIV infection. Two proteins in the seeds of the Bitter Melon appear to be able to modulate the activity of lymphocytes that could suppress macrophage activity; but are not cyto-toxic. There are no studies to support this claim. There have been research studies that suggest Bitter Melon may lower blood sugar by increasing the activity of enzymes in your body that convert sugar into glycogen, which can be stored in your liver and used later for energy. Asian researchers have published studies regarding Bitter Melonís effectiveness in lowering blood sugar. The Department of Health of the Philippines recommends using Momordica Charantia in the treatment of diabetes. It has also been seen as the best herbal medicine to help with liver problems and HIV. Medicinally, the plant has a long history of use by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. A leaf tea is used for diabetes, to expel intestinal gas, to promote menstruation, and as an antiviral for measles, hepatitis, and feverish conditions. It is used topically for sores, wounds, and infections and internally and externally for worms and parasites.

Bitter Melon Dosage Information
The recommended dosage is one small, unripe, raw melon or about 50 ml of fresh juice, each taken in 2 or 3 doses over the course of the day. Because Bitter Melonís taste is so bitter, herbalists recommend you hold your nose and take a 2 oz shot. A tincture formulation may be easier to swallow. For best results, read and follow product label directions

If you are hypoglycemic (low blood sugar), on medication for diabetes, or pregnant or nursing, consult your physician before using. Diabetics taking hypoglycemic drugs (chlorpropamide, glyburide, or phenformin for example) or insulin should use Bitter Melon only under medical supervision. People should not stop their medication or substitute it with Bitter Melon unless they are told to do so by their Doctor/Health Care Professional.
