Bitter gourd (aka. bitter melon) is a tropical vine indigenous to Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. It is recognized for its medicinal properties regarding blood sugar management for diabetics, liver cleansing, and its ability to help alkalize the body.
Bitter gourd contains several biologically active constituents, like momordicin I and II, which help the body in numerous ways. It is antiseptic and antibacterial, helping to clean-up gut flora by removing pathogens and parasites, thereby clearing up any fungal or yeast infections.
Bitter gourd juice also helps stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin and insulin receptors, making it an incredibly healing drink for individuals suffering from diabetes. It is alkalizing, and therefore helps improve blood circulation, and cleans up toxic, acid-forming deposits in the body (making it great for individuals trying to find relief from gout and arthritis).
Try to find organic ingredients when making this juice if possible!
