Recommended Dosage: 750 – 4,500 milligrams @ 1-3 times a day*
Black Ant dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~1,500 mgs black polyrhachis vicina ant extract
Black Ant drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~50 mgs black polyrhachis vicina ant extract
Black Ant Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of Black Ant taken is highly dependent on activity level.
BW + AL + DF
Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~150 pounds bodyweight
AL = + 1-5 droppers - 1 low, 2-3 medium, 3-5 high
DF = + 1 dropper for every 75 grams fat or ~1500kcals
Example #1: 135lb person (BW = 0-1 dropper) who is going for a walk on a day-off (AL = 1 dropper) who eats ~60 grams of fat and ~1750kcals (DF = 1 dropper) would have a functional dosage of ~2-3 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #1 is BW 0-1 + AL 1 + DF 1 = 2-3 droppers
Example #2: 195lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is doing circuit-style weight-training with compound exercises (AL = 3-5 droppers) who eats ~200 grams of fat and ~3000 kcals (DF = 2-3 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~6-9 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #2 is BW 1 + AL 3-5 + DF 2-3 = 6-9 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 15 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
Suggested Black Ant Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 3-30 days
- Long Term = ∞
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 2-14 days
Continuous consumption of Black Ant will yield increasing benefits and performance results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Black Ant at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and performance.*
After an initial cycle Black Ant may be continued on-and-off as desired for long-term tonic adaptogen superfood supplementation.*
