If you have a diet that is high in starch or simple sugars, then there is a good chance that you have an unusually high level of glucose in your blood stream. This is normally countered by insulin, but if your pancreas isn’t producing insulin at an appropriate rate, then it might need a bit of help. Bitter gourd contains a number of nutrients and volatile components that can stimulate pancreatic function and induce the production of insulin. Therefore, adding some bitter gourd to your weekly diet can have a preventative and regulatory effect on diabetes.
