Best Bitter Melon Supplements

(Last Updated On: April 29, 2019)

Is there such a thing as bitter melon supplements? Aren’t melons only sweet-tasting in nature? No, because bitter melon does exist and so do the supplements. Melons are one of the healthiest snacks you can eat. They are low in fat and calories and they are loaded with vitamins. They are 90% made of water so they are one of the most thirst-quenching snacks around. But you can consume them in supplement form which would mean they would be more concentrated.

Feedback: This is a wonderful review because it helped a person who is diabetic. They started taking these supplements and it lowered their sugar levels and it lowered their AIC by one point. Along with the other medications the person is taking it has really helped them feel better. The person has been able to reduce the medications they have been taking because the diabetes is under control. Here we have a benefit that bitter melon supplements offer that is not listed in the product description. The user rated the product 5-stars.

Here we have a very interesting review because the client is challenging their PCP’S (Primary Care Physician) diagnosis. The physician told this person they were pre-diabetic but the person says no way can this be the case. The client says either you are diabetic or you are not but the client is not a health care professional. The client had above normal sugar levels and the eyesight started to go bad. These are two beginning signs of diabetes. So, this would make sense that the person had the beginning symptoms of diabetes. They started taking these supplements and the eyesight cleared up and their sugar levels returned to normal. So, if the person was not pre-diabetic then I do not know what they were. The supplement cleared up the symptoms quite quickly according to the user. The client rated the product 5-stars.

Here we have a revealing review in the client says the supplement lowered their blood sugar level 100 points which are pretty amazing. There is a pattern emerging in these reviews. So, for the customers have testified that the supplements have lowered or removed symptoms tied to diabetes. The supplements are said to be low in sugar content and high in vitamin content which may be contributing to the relieving of diabetic or pre-diabetic symptoms. It is not being said that the supplements can heal diabetes but they can help relieve the symptoms of diabetes. If the supplements could heal diabetes it would be a miracle drug selling over-the-counter only for a very high price.

The customer says the supplements help to fight candida ( a yeastlike parasitic fungus that can sometimes cause thrush) because they say that it will get rid of your digestive biofilm (the customer says it protects bacteria, viral, and fungus) and the supplements will attack and kill the bacteria, viral, fungus. This happens because the supplements will kill the glucose these germs live on and this will eliminate these germs according to the customer. The client says that cancer cells will thrive on glucose to so the customer is implying these supplements will fight cancer. But it seems a little bit of a stretch that bitter melon supplements can fight cancer. It seems rare that in any cancer therapy those bitter melon supplements are used to treat cancer. The customer rated the product 5-stars but some of the benefits the customer says/imply these supplements can help with may be beyond their scope to treat.

Best Bitter Melon Supplements

This customer directly writes that his wife suffers from cancer. They read in an article written by natural health Dr. Al Sears that bitter melon supplements can fight cancer. The doctor is a practitioner of natural health and so the wife will try the bitter melon supplements for 3 months to see if the supplements will fight cancer. Chemotherapy is the other option for the wife but the wife will not take chemotherapy and it is not an option. The couple is looking for a natural remedy for cancer. It is alarming that this natural doctor would say that bitter melon supplements will fight cancer. The company who made the supplements never said the product would help to cure cancer. There is no solid evidence that the bitter melon supplements will reduce the risk of cancer let alone fight it or cure it. The couple cited no evidence or facts from the article the natural doctor wrote. This is a life-threatening issue because the wife suffers from a life-taking disease so it is a big risk, in the author’s opinion, to take these bitter melon supplements to cure cancer when there is no proof that it will even address cancer. The customer has rated the product 5-stars but for his wife to take bitter melon capsules to fight cancer; based on an article written by a natural doctor is very risky.

The customer says their doctor recommended the patient take these bitter melon supplements to fight high blood sugars. A couple of other users took these supplements for the same issues. In their cases, it helped to lower their sugar levels. The customer said they started taking the supplements for the high blood sugar levels and he does not say if they worked or are working. The customer rates the product 5-stars which may be premature. The customer does not know if the product will lower his blood sugar levels. Maybe the customer needs to take the supplements for a while before they rate it 5-stars. It would be reasonable to rate the product 5-stars after the customer felt and saw some positive results in their health.

Feedback: The customer says his doctor diagnosed him with prediabetes and that he should take metformin but the user likes to try natural sources of medicine first before he will take a prescription drug. The doctor prescribed this because the customer’s blood sugar had shot up from 90 to 112. And his AIC was 5.8 which meant he was developing diabetes and type 2 diabetes runs in his family.

This person tried many natural blood supplements but none of them helped the condition. He tried this supplement and took it very methodically. He did not change his eating habits or food intake. He says this supplement lowered his blood sugar level from 110-119 to 98-98 instantly in the morning. He says if he takes 2 of these at night and he does not snack his blood sugar levels are in the low to middle 80s. If he takes two with his meal his blood sugar level is 110-119 one hour after the meal and in the ’90s two hours after the meal. So, it is supposedly really helping to control his blood sugar levels. It seems like the supplements are helping this individual and he hopes this review will help someone. He rated the product 5-stars.

But they opened one bottle and found 31 capsules after they took out some paper towels that were stuffed in the bottle. The customer rated the product 1-star. The customer never did say whether the supplements actually helped their health or not.

This product contains no additives, preservatives, or sweeteners. It does have vitamin C and the company claims it is a good source of minerals. It is vegan and it is gluten-free and it is an anti-inflammatory plant-based super food the company claims. It is packaged in eco-friendly packaging. But does it improve the health of those who take it? All these benefits are nice but if the product is ineffective when the client takes it the benefits are useless.

Feedback: There is no feedback because there have been no reviews written about the product. The product may be so new that there have been no reviews written about it. The company says the product has a lot of good benefits so it should be able to have a positive impact on anyone to may take the product. It has all natural products which would help those who may be allergic to any chemicals or additives, preservatives, or sweeteners. But on the flip side, if a person needs more than just organic ingredients for their body to be healed then this product will not help them. But it is a healthy supplement and may do some good for those who have needs for a healthier body.

Conclusion:

We have discussed some of the better bitter melon extracts available on the market today in this article. The bitter melon extract seems to be able to regulate the blood sugar levels and help people suffering from diabetes in that sense. But none of the product descriptions said that the supplements would help diabetic symptoms. So these could be unknown supplements that the users discovered in using the supplements.

Time and time again reviews detailed that the supplements would help these people to control their glucose levels and the blood sugar levels. The supplements would normalize the blood sugars and keep them in a healthy range.
