Bitterguard Juice

This is a very famous juice in our In-laws place. My MIL being a diabetic takes this juice everyday.

Ingredients:-
  1. Bitterguard - 1 (chop it)
  2. Salt - a pinch
  3. Lemon Juice - few drops
Just put bitterguard in a blend, add a glass of water and blend it finely and drain it. Now add salt and lemon juice and drink it. Drinking 4 to 6 ounce of bitterguard juice everyday helps to reduce diabetics.

Short and salty... great recipie... but frankly tell me how much diabetes has reduced due to drinking this concoction?

To tell you frankly, I really don't know :-) She has a belief that it will reduce or it will not increase further more...

Vidhya, my editor side is at it again. Correct the spelling....it is bittergourd (karela). In fact, let me tell you, my father's diabetes came down drastically after he had bittergourd juice early in the morning regularly for a year. I believe it works in some diabetic patients, who, alongwith drinking bittergourd juice, controls their other food habits also. Drinking this juice alone and no control over other food will never help.

Thanks sangeetha, for correcting my spelling and for giving this useful information. As far as my MIL is concerned, sometimes she will be very strict and some times she will eat cakes from starbucks :-)
