Bitter Melon helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels* particularly in those with insulin resistance (those who have diabetes and women going through menopause). Bitter Melon when taken regularly has the capacity to slow down weight gain and reduce visceral fat over time.
What is insulin and insuline resistance?
The hormone insulin helps control the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood.
Insulin is released when you eat a meal and the level of glucose in your bloodstream is high. Insulin works by stimulating the uptake of glucose into cells, lowering your blood sugar level.
Your liver and muscles should take up glucose either for immediate energy or to be stored as glycogen until it's needed, however too much insulin and it gets stored as fat.
If you are insulin resistant, which many women experience whilst going through menopause, the body's cells don't respond normally to insulin any longer. Glucose can't enter the cells as easily, so it builds up in the blood. This can eventually lead to type 2 diabetes as well as fat stores around the stomach. That's where bitter melon can help. It has properties that act like insulin, which helps bring glucose into the cells for energy rather than storing it as fat.
* In conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet.
Take 1 capsule with each meal (3 capsules per day). Store in a cool dry place.

Menopause and insulin resistance
Menopause is associated with insulin resistance and if you have insulin resistance, rebalancing it is going to be one of the best way to improve your menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog as well as weight gain during menopause.
As we know estrogen drops during menopause. Your metabolism liked the insulin-sensitising effects of estrogen and that’s why losing estrogen can trigger a shift to insulin resistance and abdominal weight gain.
Recent studies show that bitter melon works in improving glucose intolerance among patients. The components present to enhance the sensitive nature of insulin in the body. By doing so, the process mitigates insulin resistancethus suppressing blood glucose levels.
Some research shows that bitter melon can have beneficial effects on reducing the waistline. One study found that consuming a capsule containing 4.8 grams of bitter melon extract each day led to significant decreases in belly fat.
It is a great product. I was surprised to see the 1 star review - it should be removed because that person didnt try it or bother to read the "how to use" before purchasing, so that review does not represent the product.
Glad you're loving the Bitter Melon! We like to be transparent with our reviews and that's why we have left the other one there, but you're right, they didn't try the product as they couldn't use it. Thanks for leaving a review that helps everyone decide if this is the right product for them :)

Thanks for the review Michelle and it's great to hear they are working for you. Keep up the good work with your walking and diet and you should hit your goals in no time!
Bitter melon can aid in weight loss alongside a healthy diet and exercise routine. Simply take 2 capsules before your main meals to help curb the spike in insulin. With less insulin spikes throughout the day, overtime this will reduce any further fat being stored on your body and through exercise and healthy eating, your body will use existing fat stores to fuel your body whilst losing weight.
