Bitter melon grows in tropical areas, including parts of the Amazon, East Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean, and is cultivated as a food and medicine.

Bitter melon has a long history of use as a hypoglycemic agent in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, where the plant extract has been referred to as vegetable insulin. Bitter melon is used medicinally mainly for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Some preliminary evidence suggests that the consumption of bitter melon as whole fruit, extract, or dried powder may reduce blood sugar levels.

More recently, bitter melon has been proposed as an antiviral and antineoplastic agent. Folkloric uses have included a myriad of other indications, including psoriasis, infertility, gastrointestinal cramps, infections, and cancer and as an abortifacient.

In China, bitter melons have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for a long time. Like most bitter-tasting foods, it stimulates digestion. Bitter melon can clear stomach heat and boost eyesight. Perhaps the best substantiated use today is that of bitter melon for people with diabetes mellitus.

Other properties and actions documented by traditional use are antifungal, antiparasitic, antivenin, bitter, cardiotonic (tones, balances, strengthens the heart), digestive stimulant, emetic (causes vomiting), menstrual stimulator, purgative (strong laxative), vermifuge (expels worms).
