In brief: See below
Bitter melon stimulates easy digestion and peristalsis of food through the bowel until it is excreted from the body.
Thus, helps in relieving indigestion and constipation problems. In addition, the vegetable is an also good source of Niacin (vitamin b-3), pantothenic acid (vitamin b-5), pyridoxine (vitamin b-6) and minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, manganese and magnesium.
