A Answers (1)

  • AMichael T. Murray, ND, Naturopathic Medicine, answered
    Bitter melon is low in calories -- a whole cup of cooked bitter melon is only 23.5 calories -- but dense in nutrients. Bitter melon is an excellent source of vitamin C, folic acid, zinc, potassium, and dietary fiber; a very good source of thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin E, magnesium, and manganese; and a good source of pantothenic acid and copper.
