 Good for non-insulin dependent diabetes, but can also help Type 1 to balance blood sugar. Good for psoriasis. Studies are showing it benefits leukemia. In folk-medicine it is used for dysentery, parasites, lack of menses, constipation, high blood pressure, and topically for infections.

 Bitter Melon does not like to be cultivated; it is a wild and free soul that grows abundantly by roadsides, backyards and along playgrounds. Use it to cultivate your own sense of freedom and liberty. Be mindful where it is harvested, making sure the area is free of toxins.
