FOR BUILDING THE DHA LEVELS: The DHA in our oil is stored by the body over time (which is the goal). So, initially, more is recommended and over time, the dosage can be reduced.
Most of the population is DHA / Omega-3 deficient or overly exposed to Omega-6 fatty acids. To rebuild the system, 2 ml (~ 2 grams or 2 droppers) / day is recommended initially. At 2 ml / day, the bottle is a 25 day supply.
IDEALLY, if the person can afford it, consuming a bottle every 12 days is the BEST way to build DHA stores and doing so for 3 months will raise the blood levels, while doing it for 12 months will do so in the tissues.
Children can take half that amount (1 ml / 1 gram / 1,000 mg / 1 dropper).
After that, consumption can be reduced and the body will still maintain its necessary levels.
FOR MAINTENANCE, AFTER HAVING BUILT UP DHA LEVELS: Adults: 1 ml / 1 gram / 1,000 mg / 1 dropper Children: 0.5 ml / 0.5 gram / 500 mg / 0.5 dropper
FOR BEAUTY: ~ 300-500 mg / day (~ ⅓ - ½ dropper) will make an incredible difference in the appearance of your complexion, overall skin condition (look and feel of entire surface of the body) as well as your hair and nails.
If you're not bothered by Algae oil (I'm easily turned off by anything and even I'm not bothered by it), you may apply 2-5 drops on your face (and arms, etc.) and gently massage it in. Leave it on for 5-10 minute or for good. You may wash it off after 5-10 minutes, if desired, using one of our Cleansing Bars or some other PURE product. The nourishment will already have absorbed into your skin by then. Personally, I leave it on...it's AMAZING what it does and I certainly appreciate its further protection from environmental stress (even if at home) and so I leave it on. It absorbs, so it's more like I leave it "IN".
WHY NOT TAKE FISH OIL INSTEAD?
Fish oils are comprised of roughly 30% omega-3 at the most, incredibly contaminated with heavy metals and pollutants and are usually proceeded with a. list of chemicals. Schizandu® Omega-3 DHA contains 50% DHA by weight....a big difference! Also, since it is grown indoors in a controlled environment, it is clean (unlike fish oil) and free of PCBs, dioxins, and heavy metals. It is concentrated, cruelty-free, Earth-friendly and it is sustainable!
