Bitter Goard: Powerful Treatment For Diabetics…And Everyone Else!

Everyone Can Benefit From Lower Blood Sugar

Drink a mocha latte… or any other sweetened drink and you will feel a powerful surge of energy, which is awesome for tackling a mountain of paperwork. But just like you, your metabolism is going 100 times faster to keep up with the surge of metabolic sugar in your digestive system.  One glass a day of this juice will rescue your cells from the mountain of processed sugar you consume daily… and help keep that extra un-processed metabolic sugar from damaging your cells… leading to a host of metabolic diseases – and the inevitable afternoon SUGAR CRASH.

Oh… So Bitter, but well worth it!

Bitter melon is a vegetable widely used in Chinese cooking and medicine. I first tasted bitter melon stir-fried over white rice in a small Chinese restaurant in New York. It tasted very bitter and pungent. I would be lying if I said I like the taste! But, I enjoyed the rush of energy and the feeling of well-being after eating half of my bitter melon dish. And if people can drink a shot of wheat grass juice.. this is certainly better, and comes with a powerful amount of good nutrition.
