The leaves of Espinheira Santa are available in capsules and traditionally prepared as a decoction taken at a dosage of 1 cup, 2 to 3 times daily.
To prepare a decoction of Espinheira Santa, 1 tsp. of the powdered leaves is used for each 8 oz. of water. Using medium-high heat, bring water to a boil in an open ceramic pot 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.
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.
I am well pleased with the product delivered.
The packing was excellent and durable bags of sufficient thickness as to expect the ziplock will hold up throughout the duration of use.
The bulk powder was clearly dry and free flowing and I would and will reorder this product.
