Adult Dosage
    Eagle Herbs is now supplying a 2 gram “little spoon”. (Please wash and dry before using.)
    An “average dose” is 10 grams per day of the granules. This means 5 “little spoons” or 20 capsules each day. Each capsule is 1/2 gram. 
    A Big Dosage for Short-lived but intense issues: 3 little spoons (12 capsules) twice a day.
    A Smaller Dosage for Lingering low-grade concerns: 2 little spoons (8 capsules) twice a day. 
    If you are very sensitive to medicines: start out low (1/2 little spoon or 2 capsules) once per day, and raise the dosage each day.
    We find that people find the right dosage for themselves. We don’t know your body weight, your sensitivity etc… So take what feels good for you and you get the results you are looking for. Many people get great results with taking less.
