RAMBAN Tea (Bitter melon) Natural Dietary Supplement...
Bitter melon also called Ampalaya or Karila, is a climbing tropical vine. The green fruit is widely used as vegetable in many countries. The nutritional value is due to high mineral and vitamin content; its bitterness is attributed to the presence of alkaloids, momordicosides, and momordicines.
It has a hypoglycemic effect (ability to lower blood sugar levels) and post prandial (after eating) blood glucose level in the body. The extract of leaves, stem, green fruits and roots can also be utilized as a dietary supplement.
Like most bitter tasting foods, bitter melon seems to stimulate digestion, and so helps to treat dyspepsia and constipation.
