The leaves of Bitter Melon are taken in the form of juice, decoctions, tinctures, and powder and extract powders in capsules. Due to its very bitter taste, the leaves aremore popularly taken in capsules than by the traditional, cultural practice of drinking the juice. By combining the decoction or tincture with sweet-tasting substances, such as Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf, the bitter taste can to some extent be masked.
To prepare a decoction of Bitter Melon, use 2 tsp. of the powder for each 8 oz. of water. In an open ceramic pot, bring water to a boil and then add the powder. Reduce the heat to medium-low and place the lid on the pot. Allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes. Pour the mixture through a fine strainer and allow it to cool for a time before drinking. Refrigerate unused portions in a well sealed container. One cup is taken 1 to 2 times daily.
Caution: Not for internal use during pregnancy or lactation. If you are taking medications or have a medical condition, consult with a health care professional before use. Keep this product out of the reach of children.
