The fruit (cactus fruit), stems and leaves are used as a food substance and as an extract in a multitude of medicinal remedies. The cactus is harvested and dried as a natural supplement. It is used medicinally to help clear the digestive tract, treat hangover, inflammation of the blood vessels near the heart, viral infections, and diarrhea, treat enlarged prostate and high cholesterol, prevent the absorption of insulin into the blood stream, and promote heart and liver health.

For centuries Chinese and Japanese cultures have been knowing the secrets and enjoying the benefits of Green Tea and Bitter Melon. Numerous studies on the benefits of miracle green tea concluded that when you consume green tea and bitter melon you can help your body with cancer prevention, reducing hypertension, bringing down blood sugar levels, cutting down on cholesterol, liver protection, reducing atherosclerosis risks, inflammatory bowel disease prevention, diabetes prevention, antibacterial and antiviral functions, metabolism stimulation, anti-ageing, tweaking immune system functions, oral health benefits and stress-relieving properties. Imagine enjoying all of these benefits just by drinking green tea with some bitter melon powder every day.

Research suggests that green tea may prevent many types of cancer. Not only does green tea prevent the growth of new cancer cells, but some experts believe that it may even have cancer cell destroying properties. The antioxidant EGCG, that is, Epigallocatechin Gallate is the protective substance in green tea doing this good work. EGCG is a lot more powerful that Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Many studies show that bladder cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, esophageal cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and skin cancer can be prevented by drinking green tea regularly. It brings down the level of unwanted cholesterol and ups the “good” cholesterol levels. Diabetic patients can drink green tea to reduce blood glucose levels. Effects of hypertension can be considerably reduced. Drinking green tea helps oral hygiene as it kills plaque-forming bacteria. Some believe that green tea strengthens the immune systems and therefore protects us against different infections and diseases such as cold, flu, fever and diarrhea. Green tea is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can even help prevent inflammatory bowel disease. Due to green tea’s metabolism stimulating properties, many dietitians are strongly advising its consumption for weight loss. Green tea is believed to burn fat and helps digestion.

Bitter melon’s applications in traditional medicine include killing bacteria, viruses, and some cancer cells, reducing inflammation, high cholesterol,  psoriasis and cleansing the blood. As most bitter-tasting foods, bitter melon stimulates digestion. This can be very helpful for people with sluggish digestion, dyspepsia, and constipation. So far 32 active chemicals have been identified in Bitter Melon, beta-sitosterol-d-glucoside, citrulline, GABA, lutein, lycopene and zeaxanthin.  Bitter Melons are rich in iron.

Home Remedies For Bad Breath

Have you ever had your confidence tested when the person you just said “Hello” to startled and took a quick step back? Most times, other people will take notice before the person who is afflicted with it – Bad Breath.

Bad breath can be caused by many things. Poor oral hygiene, cavities, bacteria on the back of the tongue are just some of the more obvious reasons for bad breath. Certain foods, smoking, dehydration, gum disease, or sinus conditions can be other causes for bad breath. In some persistent cases of bad breath a serious condition like gastrointestinal problems, sinus infection, bronchitis, diabetes, liver or kidney failure, or even cancer can be the underlying cause. People suffering from persistent bad breath should consult their dentist as well as their physician to rule out any serious health problems.

Ruling out any serious conditions, getting rid of offensive breath can be as simple as:

  1. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day, or after every meal, flossing daily, and brushing the back of your tongue.
  2. Avoid certain beverages, like beer, wine, or coffee. Residue from these beverages attaches to the plaque in your mouth and gets into the digestive track, then with every breath the bad odor comes back out. Black tea, on the other hand, will freshen breath as well as benefit your health.
  3. Eat fresh Parsley. This breath saver contains chlorophyll, a known breath deodorizer. You can also juice a few handfuls of the green goodness, mix in some watercress for a tasty flavor twist, and sip a little whenever the breath needs freshening.
  4. Ease up on the cheese. Some of the cheesy favorites are called strong for a good reason. They can get a hold of somebody’s breath and just won’t let go. Be cautious: other dairy products may have the same effect.
  5. Make sure you are well hydrated. A dry mouth is often a smelly one.
  6. Make your own gargle. Mix equal amounts of sage extract, Calendula extract, and myrrh gum extract, store in a tightly sealed jar at room temperature. Use to gargle 4 times a day. If you are out without your gargle, simply remember to rinse your mouth with water after a meal.
  7. Certain Spices have been used for centuries as natural breath fresheners. Keep a small amount of cloves, fennel seeds, anise, or cardamom with you to chew a few after a meal. Some of the flavors may be strong and may take getting used to, so, pick the ones you like best, they are well worth a try. Not only do they freshen the breath, they also aid digestion.
  8. As a last resort, there are always the cover ups – commercial mouthwash, breath mints and gum. They are really just a short-term fix, if you take a short ride with someone in a compact car, or similar situations.
