3 stars out of 5 stars

I have recently came across this in Watsons Personal Store. What attracted me is that this supplement is 100% Vegetable, thus vegetarians can take this as well. The concept of this pure herbs is based on the Ayuveda. There is no harm buying a naturally good supplement which is priced at a affordable price.

Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent. The word “Ayurveda” is a tatpurusha compound of the word āyus meaning “life”, “life principle”, or “long life” and the word veda, which refers to a system of “knowledge”. Thus “Ayurveda” roughly translates as the “knowledge of life”, or “knowledge of a long life”. According to Charaka Samhita, “life” itself is defined as the “combination of the body, sense organs, mind and soul, the factor responsible for preventing decay and death, which sustains the body over time, and guides the processes of rebirth”. According to this perspective, Ayurveda is concerned with measures to protect “ayus”, which includes healthy living along with therapeutic measures that relate to physical, mental, social and spiritual harmony.

Product Information:
Karela (Bitter gourd) is a herb used to regulate blood sugar levels. It helps to regulate carbohydrate matabolism rate. More about this herb here.

250mg of Karavella

Method of Use:
One capsule once twice daily

My experience on this product:
Hee, when i purchase this product, i thought it can help me regulate my carbohydrate metabolism rate. This is because i am an avid Carbo Eater. I love eating bread, potatoes, rice etc. But as i grow older, i also realised that my metabolism rate has slowed down tremendously as well. Though after i came home and did my research and realised that this product is more for people with diabetes to help them regulate their sugar level in their blood, however, i do feel that it helps me to “digest” my carbo intakes better. At the very least, i have managed to stop my weight gain. 🙂
