2. The Blood Sugar Beater
More than 100-million Americans live with blood sugar disorders, namely – diabetes or pre-diabetes. This green juice recipe is ideal for people with diabetes, as the strong diuretic action of the bitter melon helps to reduce blood glucose levels. We wouldn’t recommend this recipe to anyone who doesn’t have any blood sugar issues, as the bitter melon leaves a strong taste, even with the addition of apple and cucumber.
1-head romaine lettuce.
Juice of half a lemon
1-medium English cucumber.
Mix the ingredients in your blender and pulse until smooth. Drink this juice first thing in the morning, and wait for 30-minutes after drinking before you consume any food. The polyphenols found in bitter melon do an excellent job of preparing the body to handle your meds and your breakfast.
Be careful when drinking this juice, as combining it with your medication may result in the development of hypoglycemia. Yields 3-cups.
