Bitter melon, also known as bitter gourd or Momordica charantia, is a tropical fruit-like gourd said to offer a variety of benefits. Consumed as a food, juice (known as karela juice), or tea, bitter melon contains compounds thought to aid in the treatment of conditions like diabetes.
Preliminary research suggests that compounds found in bitter melon may have effects similar to those of insulin, which is the hormone responsible for allowing blood sugar to enter your cells. Since this insulin-like activity may help protect against insulin resistance and keep your blood sugar from rising, it's thought that bitter melon may help fight diabetes.
In addition, bitter melon is said to help treat and/or prevent following health problems:
Acne
Constipation
Gout
Herpes
Menstrual complaints
Psoriasis
Ulcerative colitis
Bitter melon is also said to combat cancer and promote weight loss.

Benefits
Here's a look at some of the available research on bitter melon and its possible benefits:
1) Diabetes
Although preliminary research suggests that bitter melon has hypoglycemic effects, there's currently a lack of clinical trials supporting these findings.
For a report published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2012, researchers analyzed four previously published clinical trials (with a total of 479 participants) testing the potential benefits of bitter melon in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
Noting that the reviewed studies were low quality, the report's authors found that bitter melon failed to have a significant effect on blood sugar control compared to diabetes drugs (glibenclamide and metformin) or a placebo.
2) High Cholesterol
In an animal-based study published in Nutrition Research in 2013, scientists observed that animals placed on a diet enriched with bitter melon extract experienced a significant decrease in cholesterol levels.
3) Obesity
A preliminary animal study published in Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice in 2008 found that bitter melon helped reduce the buildup of visceral fat in mice fed a high-fat diet. Characterized by excess fat around the stomach and abdomen, visceral obesity has been associated with increased risk of conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
