A typical dosage pattern for "toning," or dealing with a chronic problem, would 1-2 dropperfuls, or 20-40 drops, at the rate of 1-3 times a day. Toning means to improve health or create change over time. For example, if the iron count is low, called anemia, one can use Forti-FeED iron support to bring it back up over time, usually a couple of weeks. If the count is significantly low, 3 times a day would be indicated. If moderately low, 2 would be good. If the count is only slightly low or for maintenance, 1 times a day would be plenty. It would be best to take Forti-FeED right before meals, but most herbs are better taken on an empty stomach so they can go right to work. Good times are: upon rising, late morning before lunch or mid-afternoon, and just before bed.
