Bitter Melon Extract

"The Modern Day, Essential"

Bitter melon has been found to activate the cellular machinery to regulate energy production (AMPK) and the way that fats are handled by the liver. Activation of this metabolic pathway is important to aging. It is sometimes referred to as “exercise in a bottle” because activation of AMPK is an aspect of the benefits derived from exercise. This herb is beneficial for virtually anyone who is serious about their body composition and blood sugar balance.

How

Bitter Melon Extract

can help you:

Bitter melon helps normalize blood sugar levels, fights bacterial infections & viruses, improves digestive & liver health, reduces respiratory symptoms and may help prevent obesity & heart disease.

Longevity

  • Bitter melon increases UCP1 expression in the white adipose tissue (WAT), thereby supports energy homeostasis and balance (9).
  • Bitter melon increases expression of genes related to mitochondria biogenesis, thereby supporting, greater energy efficiency and function (10).
  • In Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean for its edible fruit. It is traditionally used in alternative system of medicines as one of the remedy for its anti-diabetic, laxative, anti-ulcer, anti-helminthic and anti-malarial activities (11).

Blood Sugar

  • Bitter melon holds hypoglycemic perspectives owing to different modes of actions, i.e. repairing damaged β-cells, increased insulin levels & its sensitivity, inhibiting the absorption of glucose by inhibiting glucosidase, and also suppresses the activity of disaccharides (5).
  • Bitter melon has a modest hypoglycemic effect and significantly reduces fructosamine levels from baseline among patients with type 2 diabetes. However, the hypoglycemic effect of bitter melon was less than metformin 1,000 mg/day, although this is still very promising (6).
  • Bitter melon is one of the most commonly used vegetable that contains polypeptide-p and is used to control diabetes naturally. Polypeptide-p or p-insulin is an insulin-like hypoglycemic protein, shown to lower blood glucose levels (7).
  • Bitter melon supplementation appears to have benefits in lowering elevated fasting plasma glucose in prediabetes, thereby improving blood sugar control (8).

Body Composition

  • Bitter melon demonstrates a beneficial role in obesity and related complications in metabolic syndrome, via modulating fat and sugar metabolism (1).
  • Bitter melon can modulate fat metabolizing kinases such as AMPKs, genes, and nuclear factors like PPARs, LXRs, and PGC-1α, in liver and skeletal muscle and affected adipocyte differentiation, suggesting an antidiabetic effect (2).
  • In rats body weight and the high level of fasting blood glucose has been improved by the administration of BM extracts about (3).
  • Bitter melon contains PPARα and PPARγ activators, that facilitate lipid metabolism, reduce blood lipids, and cause anti-inflammatory activity. This subsequently reduces fat accumulation, resulting in weight-loss effect (4).
