I'm currently traveling through South East Asia and I've found some wild Tinospora cordifolia/Guduchi plants growing in the hillside nearby. I've read all about the benefits of Guduchi and it's use in Ayurvedic medicine in India for thousands of years so I am really excited to try it. However I can't find any information on how to consume the freshly picked stems. Even though I have read that fresh is better than dried, all the info I've seen talks about extracts or dried powders.
So how do I take fresh Guduchi? Boil the stem like a tea? Chew it like a Pirate? Blend it? Juice it? And how much of this stem should I eat? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
