Bitter Melon Products
Native to Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, Bitter Melon has been used in ancient healing systems for millennia. Armed with the knowledge that bitter foods and herbs were cleansing to the body and good for the digestive system, the Chinese were attracted to this fruit's bitter taste. In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is used as a digestive tonic and for other stomach complaints.
In the Indian system of Ayurveda, Bitter Melon is considered one of the most important herbs for "ethnobotanical practices" - the study of folklore remedies to drive research towards modern usage. The Bitter Melon is still widely used as a vegetable in Asian cuisine, where it is commonly stir fried or used in soups.
Here at Indigo Herbs we are delighted to offer Organic Bitter Melon Teabags from Buddha Teas, a soothing herbal, subtle tasting tea that doesn't taste bitter at all.
