Benefits of Bitter Melon

A member of the gourd family, the bitter melon (Momordica charantia) grows wildly throughout Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. Similar in shape to a cucumber, the fruit has a distinct warty exterior.

Bitter melon contains active compounds called steroidal saponins, which are credited for most of its health benefits.

Bitter melon has been shown to be an effective remedy in killing bacteria, viruses, and some cancer cells. It has also been useful in treating pre-diabetes as well as an aid in digestion. Other research indicates that bitter melon has effects that may improve overall wellness.

In addition, researchers suggest that bitter melon extract is a supplement that might be used to prevent breast cancer due to its ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

Bitter melon is typically consumed in supplement form due to its bitter taste.
