What is Ampalaya?

Commonly known in the USA as the Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia Linn.), the Ampalaya is both a nutritious vegetable and a trusted medicinal herb that grows abundant in many regions in Asia and South America. Unlike most herbs, the Ampalaya is commonly eaten as a dish, proof positive of its safety. The Ampalaya plant is a creeping vine that loves the sun and welcomes the rain. During season, large yellow flowers add accent to its vines, accompanying its much-valued fruit.

The Ampalaya is also known by many names: Karela (India), Nigai Uri (Japan), Amorgozo (Mexico) and Fukwa (China). In the United States it is known as the Bitter Melon.

How does it work?

Since as early as the 1940s, scientific research conducted in many countries has supported the traditional belief in the Bitter Melon's health benefits.

Scientists have identified several key compounds found in the Bitter Melon fruit such as charantin, vicine, peptides and polypeptide-p. 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 Bitter Melon is an effective supplement to the low-fat, high-fiber diet recommended by doctors for maintaining a normal sugar level.

A Trusted Asian Natural Remedy

Healers and caregivers in Asia have long been aware of the Bitter Melon's health benefits.

By chopping, grinding and boiling the fruit, these natural healers have learned to extract the Bitter Melon's vital nutrients into a bitter, tea-like beverage that is then regularly imbibed by the patient to help maintain normal blood sugar levels.

Today, the Bitter Melon is well-accepted as a useful supplement and is readily available in many commercial variants all over the world. Whether taken as tea or in capsules, with Charantea, you're sure you get only 100% Bitter Melon to supplement your daily diet.
