Cerasee is used in many cultures as an herbal treatment to a couple of medical conditions and predominantly the plant has also been studied for its healing benefits. Here are some of the known uses for Cerasee:
Weight Loss: Cerasee has another potential application in weight loss, according to a published study in 2010. According to the study’s outcome, Cerasee was effective in reducing and suppressing lipid (fat) accumulation in the body by successfully regulating adipogenic transcription factors and adipocytokine gene expression. However, the study suggested that more studies need to be conducted for Cerasee’s formal use for human weight loss.
Diabetes: Possibly one of the most significant uses of Cerasee involves its application in diabetes treatment. Due to Cerasee’s hypoglycemic activity, studies all over the world were conducted for the plant for its use in diabetics, leading to the development of natural supplements containing Momordica/Cerasee for ailing patients. According to one 2013 review, there are abundant pre-clinical studies published supporting Cerasee’s hypoglycemic effects benefiting patients with diabetes. However, the same study also outlined the need for better-designed clinical trials to further establish Cerasee’s importance when it comes to diabetes treatment.
