Malabar Gourd Extract - New Hope for Diabetics

Malabar Gourd (Fig Leaf Gourd or Shark Fin Melon) grows in Asia, Chile, France, Mexico, Portugal, Peru, and Argentina,  and it’s related to the cucumber family and can grow up to 12 pounds. And extracts from the seeds have powerful health benefits for diabetics.

Studies show that extracts from Malabar Gourd Seeds rejuvenate insulin producing cells of the pancreas, thus helping those suffering from type 2 diabetes... and according to a study done in Mexico it also seems to work well for prediabetics. Blood glucose levels change fast with Malabar Gourd, usually a week... and within 3 months blood glucose is back to normal. 

Malabar Gourd contains polysaccharide sugars that restore pancreatic tissue including insulin producing cells, and increases circulation in the pancreas. And another study shows that fresh Malabar Gourd juice also works well for lowering blood glucose.  

Malabar Gourd Seed Extract ends cravings for carb, thus helping with weight loss... and it’s very low in carbs and high in protein, and the meat of the gourd is also low in carbs. Plus the gourd has powerful antioxidant capabilities that prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer... and it’s a great anti-inflammatory agent too.

Plus the green parts of the plant and the flowers can be used in salads. And the gourd can also be used for cooking, and can be made into alcoholic drinks, cookies, cakes, jams, spreads, and even candy. In Mexico a special dessert is made with the seeds like peanut brittle... and in Costa Rica and other countries special jams are made for Easter... and in Asia they make soup from the flesh of the gourd. 

Malabar Gourd can be found at your local Asian Market... and you can order seeds on line.
