With 60 capsules in each bottle, the most common daily dosage for individuals is 2 tablets per day to assist health and wellbeing.
Many of the Vita team usually take one with breakfast, and the other just before bed as a good routine. One bottle is one month's supply.
The other method of consumption is through herbal tea. Simply brew a cuppa then add 10g of dried Red Sage to steep for up to 5 minutes, then serve and enjoy. Add 1 teaspoon of honey if a sweeter taste is required!

Each capsule contains 500mg of herb. These concentrated herbal supplements have been standardised to a concentration ration of 7:1, up to 200% stronger than other brands on the market.
These are typically safe to consume when pregnant, but we would always advise checking with your Chinese medical practitioner to confirm your appropriate dosage.
