Bitter melon is a member of the same family as squash, melon, and gourds (Cucurbitaceae). Organic Bitter Melon Powder is very low in calories and dense with precious nutrients. It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and high in dietary fibre. It is rich in iron, contains twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, and twice the potassium of a banana.
This plant is best prepared as a tea. Use one teaspoon of powder for each cup of water, gently boil in a covered pot for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and settle for 10 minutes then strain warm liquid into a cup (leaving the settled powder in the bottom of the pan). It is traditionally taken in one cup dosages, 2-3 times daily.
