You’ve bought a new supplement that really indicated to you as something that might help your health problem. But, it never gives the exact dosage you should take, or it is vague and you don’t really know how much you should take. Well, everyone is different and everyone has a different deficiency when it comes to vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids.
So how to you work out what to take?
Some supplements come with directions on how much to take – those are easy – but often then don’t. You want to start at the smallest dosage. . You take the smallest dosage for 3 days. It takes the body 3 days to adjust. Did you get a positive change?
If not, up the dosage a bit and take that for 3 days, positive change? You can continue on this until you do get your positive change and that is the amount you need.
Often, you don’t need to take much, but sometimes you do need more and you can judge by the positive change. Remember more isn’t always better. If you follow this rule, you can get the correct dosage for you.
But you should always remember that sometimes a deficiency will get fixed and you won’t need to take as much. If you feel like maybe that’s true, then go down a bit and see if you still feel good. Play it back and forth until again you get the best dosage for you.
