Bitter melon contains iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamins A and C. Good for skin and hair. It helps me reduce acne and skin blemishes. It has polypeptide, a compound that functions similar to insulin. That's why it can actively reduce our blood glucose levels. I usually consume it with a carb heavy meal. Moreover, it can boost the liver enzymes and reduce alcohol deposits on the liver. Liver friendly and gut friendly.
