Just wanted to share a short story.
On the way to the airport, I met a man from India who shared with me a plant that he states many use in India that lowers blood glucose. He called it “krela.” When I researched it, it bitter gourd came up.
I thought you all might be interested in learning more about it. Here is the link to the article.
