My husband is a Type 2 diabetic. He ignored dietary restrictions and failed to monitor blood sugar levels for months. I bought him Bitter Melon, but he refused to take it. I had noticed his worsening excessive thirst and his need to sleep after meals. When my husband finally measured his blood sugar level after eating, the score was 398. One hour after a Metformim tablet prescribed by an M.D., the blood sugar level had increased to 458. Numbers in the 400s were recorded for days. In desperation, after several days of frightemimgly high blood sugar levels, my husband took Bitter Melon before bed. To our great surprise and relief, his blood sugar that first the morning was 298. The second morning, his blood sugar level was 258. The third morning following Bitter Melon at bedtime, my husband's blood sugar level was 225. We are now on day #4 of this experiment with Bitter Melon as a natural control for blood sugar. The results have been nothing short of amazing. My husband will continue to use Bitter Melon, and will soon consult his M.D. about possibly adjusting the recommended dose of Metformin, which did not control his blood sugar when taken without the addition of Bitter Melon.
Paleo heroes claim Bitter Melon helps convert white adipose fat (WAT) to brown adipose fat ( BAT ). Body more readily burns up BAT.
Works Like Metformin

Exactly the same effect as Metformin for my husband.
Have not noticed anything so far except some reflux?

I have not been taking to long but I have had reflux from these and usually I don't get reflux. A one time buy if re-flux continues after stopping and starting again. iHerb has good customer service and also good DHL delivery service Thanks !
Seems to Lower Blood Sugar

In My personal experience, it does seem to lower blood sugar, consult your doctor so your diabetes meds can be adjusted.

I have taken bitter melon capsules for bout two years and they keep my blood sugar levels perfect, but this Himalaya brand makes my stomach cramp, and later on my bowel cramps...it just seems to be too strong for me. I like Source Naturals much better.
