Question Bitterness for hangover cure?

Does the bitterness of green tea have any effect on the "hangover effect" from eating too much carbohydrates the night before? (no alchohal) I have read that decafinated green tea is good for stress.

I am also thinking about Bitter Mellon tea.

Does it really do this??: "Diabetic patients now stop worrying about your increasing blood sugar level. Here is the solution to your problem and that is Bitter gourd juice. A small cup of this juice increases the insulin level of your body. "

Apparently Bitter Gourd Juice works similar to, but not as effective as, metformin. Of course, this hasn't deterred the sale of this as a supplement with all sorts of claims.

Bitter Melon and Diabetes - Effect on Blood Glucose Levels & Benefits

Quote:
In January 2011, the results of a four-week clinical trial were published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, which showed that a 2,000 mg daily dose of bitter melon significantly reduced blood glucose levels among patients with type 2 diabetes, although the hypoglycemic effect was less than a 1,000 mg/day dose of metformin. [68]

However, research published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology in 2007 failed to show any benefits of bitter melon for poorly controlled type 2 diabetes, while another clinical review published two years later in the British Journal of Nutrition stated that more, better-designed and clinical trials are required to confirm the fruit’s role in diabetes treatment

It seems...the worse something tastes, the better they think it is for you.

Why not take the bitter melon in a capsule?

They say that the tea is not very bitter, and the tabs are expinsive. another scam.

I like the biterness of "gunpowder" green tea. It has the rigth amount of Umami flavor.

I found 60 caplets on Amazon for $10.44, I haven't gotten them yet since I'm unsure if I want to add another supplement just yet.

But I'll try the green tea idea since I actually have some in my pantry I forgot about!
Be well.

Question

does it tell you how much of the active ingredient is in the tabs? I don't think that is even posible.

All I know is what it says on the label:
410 mg organic bitter lemon powder (stem) - 3% bitters 12.3 mg
250 mg organic bitter lemon extract (fruit) )momordica charantia
2.5 % bitters 6.25 mg

what all that means is anyone's guess.

I haven't bought it. I just found it and there are many other capsules by other suppliers there. Check it out for yourself and see.

Unhappy

Well that is the problem with the health food industry, absolutly no regulation, there could be vertualy nothing to way too much of the active ingredient.

Too bad, because it would be nice not to have to use Metformin.
