My husband is a diabetic and has been using alternative medicines rather than the typical doctor-oriented meds. Bitter Melon was recommended by a PhD friend of ours in the homeopathic industy and it works. It is also fairly expensive, that is, until we came across Nature's Herbs at eVitamins. The cost is less than half what we were paying before, for the same product. Thank you for your product and your service.
I have used bitter melon with great success as a person who is at risk for diabetes. That is, I have noticed a considerable drop in blood sugars after meals that contain any significant amount of carbohydrates. In fact, often the levels are near normal or normal usually within a half hour after eating. I am wondering why this product is not being used by the conventional medical community as my own personal physican scoffed at the mere mention of it. Metaformin was suggested as the drug of choice for me, but I rejected it after learning all about its potential negative side effects. Of course, I adhere to the need to exercise daily (if at all possible) and choose to eat a diet relatively free of simple carbohydrates.
My husband's glucose was over 250. After 2 days (yes, days)on bitter melon his reading dropped 50 points. We couldn't believe it and none of his friends believe it. The exact day the bitter melon arrived we just had returned from the dr who said, "you have to go on insulin". We didn't say a word. There in the mailbox was the Bitter Melon and now his readings are 105-115 daily.
Tenho diabetes tipo I e estou usando Bitter Melon há 2 semanas. O controle da glicemia melhorou, mas o produto sozinho não tem tanto efeito. Uma alimentação com baixo índice glicemico, vegana e natural são aliados importantes na manutenção da saúde.
