Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) is a plant whose therapeutic potential has already been noticed in antiquity. It was used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a remedy for a wide variety of ailments. Nowadays, extracts from bitter melon are used mainly in the prevention of metabolic diseases and as an auxiliary in the treatment of glucose-insulin disorders. In addition, bitter melon extracts are believed to show an antiviral activity and a beneficial effect on the immune system.
Preparations in this category are conducive to improving metabolic parameters, which is why they work well in people who are struggling with dysregulated glucose metabolism, reduced insulin sensitivity, and unstable sugar levels. They can be part of the prevention of diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases.
Bitter melon extracts can be confidently recommended to physically active people. Clinical trials have proved that the compounds contained in the plant, by activating the AMPK enzyme, promote the deposition of glycogen in the muscles and liver. This, in turn, has a positive effect on endurance and efficiency, and consequently may translate into better sports results.
