The Supplement Label Lists the Ingredients 

The serving size of a supplement is listed on the label in the top of the supplement box; this is the suggested size for one serving. Additionally, the amount of daily servings may appear elsewhere on the label.

Start with a minimum serving size the first couple times when beginning a new supplement.

Dosage is a term used for a small serving size that are milligrams (mgs) or milliliters (mls) or International Units (I.U.). Vitamins, minerals, spices, and botanical extracts may use dosage type instructions to remind someone they are taking a smaller serving size.

For example: if the serving size of a tincture is a 1 ml dropper, this may be considered a dosage due to the small serving size; a dose would be 1/2ml which is half a serving size.
