As this extract is very bitter, it is recommended to mix it with either fruit juice, or a smoothie. It can be consumed by mixing the extract with water, but will provide a very bitter taste. It can also be used by adding it to common baking recipes.
As a dietary supplement, take 750 mg (rounded 1/4 tsp) once daily with meals, or as directed by a physician.
I'm a big fan of bitter melon in my cooking for both its taste and health benefits. The powdered version from Sam's blends nicely with my morning shake and I have the assurance of stable blood sugar
Excellent addition to balance out overly sweet smoothies...5*! Thanks again Sam!!
