  1. Karela Extract helps lower blood sugar levels

Studies have demonstrated a hypoglycemic effect of Bitter Melon extract. Karela extract helps to lower blood glucose (sugar) levels and regulate the body’s use of insulin. In some ways, Karela extract acts like insulin that the body produces naturally. Studies have shown that bitter melon extract helps to significantly lower blood glucose levels. It did this by helping cells to take up more glucose from the blood as needed. It is regarded as a regulator of glucose metabolism.

The main constituents of bitter melon which are responsible for the antidiabetic effects are triterpene, proteid, steroid, alkaloid, inorganic, lipid, and phenolic compounds

Momordica charantia extract is helpful in controlling blood glucose levels. It’s antioxidant properties also protect vital organs, including the liver, against damage caused by diabetes-induced oxidative stress. The protection effect of bitter melon extracts on the liver is mainly due to its antioxidant capacity to scavenge free radicals and reduced inflammation in liver due to noxious stimuli.
