Bitter melon extract 4:1 is a fine yellow-brown powdered extract of the fruit of the Mormodica charantia plant. It grows in tropical and subtropical regions and is commonly known as bitter melon or bitter gourd.

Traditionally in folk medicine melon has been used as a treatment for diabetes, and the fruit has been used as a vegetable for millennia.

Several in vivo and in vitro studies have shown that M.charantia extracts have potent anti-diabetic,  anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. These effects are thought to be due to the variety of bioactive compounds found in the plant such as peptides, lipids, terpenoids, saponins, phenolics and sterols.

Bitter melon extract 4:1 is ideal for use in food supplements.
