Bitter leaf and Diabetes: Can Bitter Leaf Water Reduce Sugar in the Body?
DOES BITTER LEAF JUICE REDUCE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS?
Like I said in my previous post, people look for bitter food items once they are diagnosed of high blood sugar. The notion is that the bitterness of these food items neutralize the sugar in the blood… Lol😂.
As the name implies, bitter leaf a very ‘BITTER LEAF’ not to talk of the juice that comes out of it. This first of all serves as a punishment to anyone whose sugar is high. The depression😴😔😔 that comes with just the thought of having to drink this juice or chew the leaf is enough to add hypertension to the victim’s problems.
The scientific truth 😁😁is that bitter leaf contains beneficial plant compounds and most importantly fiber which play important roles in reducing sugar levels just like any other green leafy vegetable. The unscientific truth😑 now is that it does not perform magic as people think.
The bitterness of any food does not in any way contribute to its potential in reducing sugar level… so please be careful. The compounds found in a food item can give it a bitter taste.

Something else worthy of note is that uncooked vegetables contain some levels of microorganisms that might add stress to your kidneys while trying to filter blood. These leaves are washed with hands that may not be totally free from germs and the juice taken without any form of heating. Long term practice of this may be dangerous to health.
The bottom line is that bitter leaf is not a bad leaf but don’t you think that it is better to use other alternative and easier ways of reducing sugar levels than having to gulp down a cup of bitterness everyday🤤? Your guess is as good as mine.
Let me say it again, the beneficial characteristics of bitter leaf are also found in other green leafy vegetables. The hype of the leaf is just a fallacy.
Let me rest my case here. I believe you should have one or two questions. I’m here to answer you… just drop them in the comment section.
