Momordica charantia

MOMORDICA charantia

Insulin Regulator & Weight Loss


The problem with type II diabetics is that the Langerhans cells located in the pancreatic that produce the body’s own insulin, are mostly hypertrophic and produce enough insulin. The insulin levels of patients are sufficient or even increased, but still the blood sugar value appears increased. The reason for this is the so-called insulin resistance, i.e. the insulin cannot enter the cell as the cell membrane closes down. The body now tries to “press” the body’s own hormone into the cell due to increased insulin production, which is initially successful, but becomes increasingly difficult, until it comes to the “outbreak” of diabetes.
So we need a substance, which ensures the cell permeability of the body’s own insulin again. Momordica charantia seems to contain such substances.

It is widely misunderstood that the plant contains insulin-like or even herbal insulins. Insulin is produced only by mammals and is not present in any plant. As a crutch, so to speak, researchers have named substances V-insulin in the analysis of the ingredients, in ignorance of the not so long known insulin resistance. The use of Momordica charantia is known all over the world for generations but not the actual effect. Furthermore, Momordica charantia seems to be a plant of which Thailand probably has the most numerous sub-species, a positive effect on the Adiponectine, leading to sustained weight loss. Since this is a complex process, it is discussed in detail under “STUDIES” on it.

Differences of species:

There are different species under the same botanical name, especially a commercial as you can see here which has none of or only to a small extent the effects described. This is purely optically distinguishable even for the novice. This is the unripe and non-toxic Thai fruit.

Weight loss through appetite-suppressing effect, type II diabetes, prediabetes, associated with physical activity and dietary change.
Infection of the stomach with Helicobacter pylori, viral-related infections, bacteria related infections for support, especially diseases caused by staphylococci, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, Streptobacilli and streptococci. Triglyceride and cholesterol-lowering effect. Viral and bacterial skin diseases such as boils and acne.
Reports of immunostimulatory activity as well as antimutagenic and antitumor effect.


None known so far, but for safety’s sake do not use during pregnancy and in nursing mothers. It is also advised to avoid overdose. If you are taking oral antidiabetics, inform your physician, since these agents must be reduced.


3 times daily 1 capsule of 400 mg before meals.


Momordica charantia form the Cucurbitacea family. Also known as balsam pear, bitter cucumber, bitter melon, bitter pear, Bitter Apple.


Insulin is not inulin. It is widely misunderstood that the plant Momordica contains insulin-like substances or even vegetable insulin. Here is a confusion with inulin.

Inulin is a polysaccharide of D-fructose, a homoglycan in ß-2,1 glycosidic linkage – about 30 fructose units, an herbal carbohydrate reserve. Occurs in artichoke and dahlia tubers. In parenteral feeding without reabsorption Inulin is excreted by the kidney (creatinine clearance).
