Black Ant Dosage*
Recommended Dosage: 750 – 4,500 milligrams @ 1-3 times a day*
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 a keto-diet of ~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.*
Black Ant dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~1,500 mgs black polyrachis vicina ant extract
Black Ant drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~50 mgs black polyrachis vicina ant extract
Suggested Black Ant Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 7-30 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.*
How to take Black Ant
Black Ant is a versatile tonic superfood that may be freely taken anytime to support adaptation to stress.* Overall Black Ant supports non-stimulating lasting stamina of all physical activities and maintains homeostasis balance of bodily functioning.*
- Performance - 15-30 minutes before physical activity, especially strenuous and strength oriented exercise and work.*
- Meals - consume around meal time to support nerve recovery and adrenal restoration.*
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health.
