You probably know someone who has breast cancer… maybe someone who has even had a double mastectomy or possibly someone dealing with diabetes.
|This is the ultimate super plant that can battle cancer and diabetes!|
When you are needing something new, something fresh to try and see if you can battle or even prevent something as malicious as cancer or debilitating as diabetes, you need to dig deeper into the vast arsenal of weaponry – the weapons provided By Mother Earth herself.
Could one plant possibly help you with achieving both of those goals?
This might sound far-fetched to you, but multiple studies have shown that this is one mighty plant and that yes, bitter melon (Momordica charantia) can help prevent cancer and manage diabetes.
Now there’s another tool for your toolbox. It really doesn’t take much of this botanical powerhouse to give a punch, either!
The extract of bitter melon alone has proven to trigger the death of breast cancer cells, as reported in the study, Bitter Melon Extract Inhibits Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation.
Another study with mice (Effects of Bitter Melon or Ginger Rhizome) also showed similar results. The researchers gave the mice free access to hot water extracts of either bitter melon or ginger. After some careful observation, it was found that tumor growth was significantly inhibited.
|Do what you want to do to mask the bitter taste!|
As far as diabetes go, if you are having blood sugar issues, this amazing fruit actually has its own chemical that is able to help regulate blood sugar. People from Asia and South America have used bitter melon for years specifically for diabetes, because of the plant insulin it naturally contains.
Overall, this fruit really is an awesome food to add into your diet. Even if you don’t feel like you are at risk of developing cancer or diabetes, what’s the harm in including such a powerful, healthy bitter into your daily life and reaping the benefits?
Just as a caution: You should not drink this tea if you are pregnant or want to conceive, nor should children drink the juice – there were two reports of children going into a coma after drinking bitter melon. It lowers blood sugar AND it also inhibits the liver’s release of glucose. A child’s system is not mature enough to handle such a potent effect quite yet.
