How Karela Works

Numerous health benefits of Karela include positive influence on sugar levels in blood and urine. Some of Karela constituents have direct influence on the glucose tolerance and thus blood glucose levels. These are:

  • Steroidal saponins (charantin)
  • Insulin-like peptides
  • Alkaloids

Namely, such polypeptide as Gumarin, which is a Karela constituent, is very similar to bovine insulin.

Karela extract has been used in natural medicine for centuries as a blood purifier. Studies have shown that bitter melon extract significantly improves glucose tolerance in 73% of patients.

Karela is rich on other elements that are beneficial to health in general. These are:

  • Iron
  • Beta carotene (twice more than in broccoli)
  • Calcium (twice more than in spinach)
  • Potassium (twice more than in bananas)
  • Vitamins C, B 1, B2, B3
  • Phosphorus

Owing to these elements, Karela not only helps keep blood sugar levels normal, but also supports pancreas and liver, improves digestion and general body metabolism, maintains normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels in blood and liver, supports immune system, and acts as a powerful detoxifier.
