 PRODUCT INFO

Special-Tea is made from 50% leaves & 50% fruits from bitter melon plant known as Momordica Charantia(scientific name) to maximize the benefits of an isolated property known as protein called MAP30, that was patented by American scientists in 1996.  These scientists stated that MAP30 is effective against tumor, HIV, Aids and other viruses related to blood diseases.  It has been proposed to have hypoglycemic, antiviral, and antineoplastic activities.  Some components are structurally similar to animal insulin, and preliminary studies suggest that may decrease hepatic gluconeogenesis, increase hepatic glycogen synthesis, and increase peripheral glucose oxidation in erythrocytes and adipocytes.  One mechanism for the hypoglycemic activity is an increase in beta-cell production in the pancreas.

 

Each tea bag contains 2 grams of exotic wild and farmed (cultivated) bitter melon freshly harvested and naturally grown without the use of fertilizers or pesticides.  It is 100% all natural ingredients, caffeine free and no preservatives.
