Ampalaya cure for Diabetes?
Various animal and human clinical studies on the blood sugar-lowering effect of ampalaya extracts have already been conducted in several countries like the Philippines, India and Japan. The results of these studies suggest that ampalaya can have a significant decrease in blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes who are not insulin-dependent.
To take advantage of the medicinal benefit of ampalaya for diabetes, diabetics need not buy capsules, tablets, teas or other preparations. They can cultivate the plant in their own garden and prepare the extract.
The blood sugar-lowering effect of ampalaya is gradual and cumulative. Of the different ampalaya preparations, the juice or decoction has been the most consistently effective.
