Karela, also known as bitter melon, is native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central and South America, Africa and Asia. It is grown as both food and medicine.

The plant grows as a vine, and its leaves are long and separated in several sections.It has yellow flowers, and the fruits have a rough surface, resembling a cucumber.

In the struggle to find a cure for cancer, Dr. Frank Shallenberger was trying to find a natural substance that interrupts the odd metabolism of cancer cells. His discoveries include resveratrol, green tea, Seanol, and others.
However, his newest research found a fruit that was effective in killing pancreatic cancer cells. This beneficial fruit is popular in Okinawa, Japan, and it is called “bitter melon”.
Bitter melon proved to be extremely efficient in damaging pancreatic cancer cell lines when diluted to 5% in water.
Experts claim that bitter melon juice reduced the viability of two cancer cell lines by 90% and killed the remaining two lines at a rate of 98%.
Nevertheless, there was a doubt whether these effects will be the same in cases of animals and human beings. However, it turned out that the answer is positive.
Namely, researchers at the University of Colorado administered bitter melon doses to mice and found a 64% reduction in pancreatic tumor size without any kind of side effect.
The dose was the same as six grams of powder for the average sized human.
In addition, this superb fruit offers strong benefits to diabetics as well. Research showed that it helps ameliorate metabolic problems by its effects on glucose metabolism.
Yet, if you have cancer or diabetes, it is strongly advisable that you consult your doctor whether you should combine the bitter melon treatment with other beneficial treatments in order to obtain best results in the fight against the disease.
