Dosages (Melon):

Fruit widely eaten raw, pickled, or baked; seeds eaten raw or toasted, or slurried in fruit juices; or the oil is expressed. Roasted charmagaz is a mixture of peeled melon, cucumber, pumpkin, and watermelon seed (FAC; TAN; EB54:155); leaves eaten as a relish, vegetable, and in soups (UPW).

• Algerians give floral tea after surgically removing fetus (HJP).

• Asian Indians apply bruised seeds to children with tympanites (DEP).

• Asian Indians suggest fruit, raw or cooked, as lotion in eczema, freckles, and sunburn (NAD); one fruit a day for eczema (DEP).

• Asian Indians consider their beverage called burfi good for the prostate (FAC).

• Asian Indians consider the seed oil diuretic (NAD).

Ayurvedics consider the fruit aphrodisiac, diuretic, febrifuge, laxative, and tonic, using it for ascites, biliousness, fatigue, and insanity (KAB).

• Chinese suggest the seed for stomach cancer (JLH).

• Lebanese rub fruit pulp on breast and give it to weaning children to suck (HJP).

• Lebanese believe the melon repels bedbugs (HJP).

• Unani, considering the seed diuretic, lachrymatory, and tonic, use for bronchosis, fever, hepatosis, nephrosis, ophthalmia, sore throat, thirst; the fruit they consider cardiotonic, cerebrotonic, diaphoretic, diuretic, lactagogue, used for dysuria and ophthalmia, the vulnerary rind applied to the hypogastrium as diuretic (KAB).

Extracts (Melon):

Vouldoukis et al. (2004) proved antioxidant and antiinflammatory activities in a melon extract selected for its high superoxide dismutase activity. The extract dose dependently inhibited the production of superoxide anion (maximal at 100 pg/ml). The antiinflammatory properties of the extract were, in part, due to the induction of production of IL-10 by peritoneal macrophages (X15261965). Alpha-spinasterol significantly (circa 1000 x simvastin, a coenzyme-A inhibitor) modulates development and/or progression of diabetic nephropathy. It reduced significantly attendant increases in serum triglycerides, renal weight, and urinary protein excretion in diabetic mice (X15326549).

Diabetes 2

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
