Chaga Mushroom Dosage
For best results hold the extract liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of the extract. Doing this
allows many of the constituents to bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth. It also better promotes the immediate effects.
Being based upon studies that show efficacy and the numerous textbooks concerning Chaga mushroom, 2,000 to 12,000 milligrams daily is the recommended dosage.
This is 2-12 droppers a day.
One may take 1-3 droppers once to twice daily or three times for a more powerful detoxification effect.
Many benefits of adaptogens come from consistent continued use over a period of time – we believe low doses taken over the course of 30-90 days to be a good time-frame concerning a course of supplementation.
