This juice is great to help lower blood sugar levels because it contains bitter gourd which has been shown to display incredible blood-sugar lowering type abilities. Bitter melon contains three active substances called charantin (confirmed blood glucose-lowering effect), vicine, and an insulin-like compound called polypeptide p.
These substances work individually, or together, to help reduce blood sugar levels! Not only that, but bitter melon contains a lectin that reduces blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and suppressing appetite, similar to the way insulin acts on the brain.
If you currently suffer from diabetes, or have other blood-sugar issues, this juice is just the thing you need to help get your blood sugar stabilized and back on track. Enjoy!
