Charantea is made from 100% dried whole Ampalaya [Bitter Melon] fruits, long used by Asian diabetics for its nutritional value and health benefits. Natural, safe and effective, Charantea helps fortify a low-fat, high-fiber diet recommended for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
Since as early as the 1940s, scientific research conducted in many countries has supported the traditional belief in the Ampalaya's health benefits.
Scientists have identified several key compounds found in the Ampalaya fruit such as charantin, vicine, peptides and polypeptide-p (a plant insulin). It is believed that the interplay of these compounds is what gives the herb its potency.
Although more studies are needed to completely unlock the secrets of this herb, this much researchers do agree on: taken regularly, the Ampalaya is an effective supplement to the low-fat, high-fiber diet recommended by doctors for maintaining a healthy sugar level.
Healers and caregivers in Asia have long been aware of the Ampalaya's health benefits. In the Philippines, herbalists and the traditional healers called herbolarios have long used the Ampalaya as a natural remedy for any number of ailments most particularly for diabetics to help reinforce their diets.
By chopping, grinding and boiling the fruit, these natural healers have learned to extract the Ampalaya's vital nutrients into a bitter, tea-like beverage that is then regularly imbibed by the patient to help maintain normal blood sugar levels.
WARNINGS: It is important that you drink Charantea after each meal, when your blood sugar levels naturally go up.
