It is no secret that not only does it rid body of insulin resistance but also has no knwon side effects. It thus is fast becoming a wonder drug preferred by diabetics all over the world. Having said all that we need to know exactly how this wonder fruit works?
Bitter Melon contains a chemnical that acts like insulin to help reduce blood sugar levels. The way it controls sugar is two-fold. First, it acts as a mediator between the body’s cells and insulin already produced by the pancreas. Its also blocks the formation of glucose in the bloodstream and breaks down the barrier that prevents cells from using their own natural insulin.
Secordly, bitter melon has been shown to help increase production of beta cells by the pancreas, thereby improving the body ability to produce and release insulin. At the same time it may increase the number and activity of insulin receptors. It is also known to improve glucose tolerance and help the body process blood sugars.
Researcher believe bitter melon may lower sugar by increasing the activity of hexokinase and glucokinase, enzymes in your body that convert sugar into glycogen, which can be stored in your liver and used later for energy. I guess now it is clear why this fruit is quickly gaining importance with not only doctors but also diabtics all over the world.
