The CARELA Beverages Clinical Study

A university study has been conducted on CARELA beverages by a U.S. accredited scientific research facility adhering to strict U.S. scientific standards.

This study was published in "Nutrition & Diabetes” on January 16, 2017 after nearly 1.5 years of clinical research.

  CARELA Clinical Study Clinically Studied Blood Drop

Study Title:  

"Acute Effects of a Beverage Containing Bitter Melon Extract (CARELA) on Postprandial Glycaemia Among Prediabetic Adults"

Study Purpose:

This study was designed to further understand the commonly accepted cultural understanding that Bitter Melon is helpful to individuals with elevated blood sugar.

Study Findings:

Drinking CARELA led to a reduced glucose response during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in 50% of the pre diabetic participants.  We classified these individuals as ‘Responders’

Of the 50% of participants who responded, their average reduction was -13.2% with a range of -7.6% to 17.1%.

Drinking CARELA did not affect the body’s natural hormones / insulin response, an outcome we believe to be very positive - i.e. CARELA did not alter the body’s natural body chemistry.
