Bitter melon or Karelia is a kind of vine from the Cucurbitaceae family. It grows in tropical and subtropical regions and has recently been successfully cultivated in other climates. It is grown and used as food (usually among eastern nations) but also as a medicine across all continents.
All the parts of the bitter melon are bitter and can be used in the preparation of foods and medicines. Bitter melon is rich in vitamin C, potassium and phosphorus. Mature fruit is rich in glycoprotein (lectin), which by its action is similar to insulin (reduces blood sugar). It acts as an immunomodulator, that is, increases the immunity of the stationary functions, and in this way, people who suffer from cancer and HIV infections lead to the death of the cancer cells, which prevents their reproduction.
The leaves of bitter melon are used in the form of tea in malaria patients, and they also act antibacterial. Bitter melon contains many antioxidant compounds such as beta-carotene, flavonoids, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which have been tested in defense against free radicals – an aging factor and various degenerative diseases. Bitter melon contains very few calories, and many vitamins (B1, B2, BZ, C), minerals (magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, and manganese).
With the latest research, its strong activity has been confirmed without hesitation, in the treatment of cancer, HIV infection, diabetes and the removal of toxins from the human organism.
Colorado has published his clinical studies that successfully treat pancreatic cancer. With many other clinical studies, the successful action of bitter melon has been confirmed and in the treatment of breast, prostate, liver and colon cancer.
All this is due to the action of glycoprotein lectin. The use of bitter melon is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
Bitter melon cures pancreatic cancer, liver, colon, lung and breast cancer
This miraculous fruit has been used for centuries in Asian and African phytotherapy. But has recently captured the attention of scientists, especially because of its effect on malignant diseases. Many studies have found that the active ingredients of bitter melon juice impede the metabolism of glucose in the cancer cells and starve them. Scientists from the University of St. Louis found that the bitter melons’ soft part destroys breast cancer cells and prevents their reproduction.
A study by researchers at the University of Colorado’s Carcass Research Center confirmed that the bitter melon juice affects the growth of the pancreas cancer. It also helps in the case of prostate cancer, liver, colon, and lungs cancer. The juice of bitter melon also prevents the spread of leukemia and neuroblastoma – the neuroendocrine tumor. And strengthens the immune function of cancer patients. Its powerful effect is attributed by scientists to glycoprotein lectin, which contains this bitter product in large quantities
In its actions this glycoprotein is similar to insulin, it reduces the blood glucose concentration and acts as an immunomodulator. The extract contains at least three active substances with antidiabetic action (quarantine, vicine, and polypeptide P).
