A Message About Dosing from Rosita
The dosing recommendation is different for EVCLO liquid and softgels.
A serving size of 3 softgels has:
Vitamin A: 365 mcg
Vitamin D: 3 mcg
And 9 softgels = 1 teaspoon of liquid EVCLO.
Therefore, 1 teaspoon of liquid EVCLO has:
Vitamin A: 1100mcg
Vitamin D: 9mcg
Why is the dosing recommendation different for the liquid and the softgels? A “standard”' recommended dose is required by law for all labels. At the same time, adults come in many sizes - and one size does not fit all! The dose for children of all ages and sizes will also vary.
Make no mistake, this is the exact same oil in both the capsules and the liquid. The difference is the dosing recommendations, which are based on the person. Here’s the short explanation:
Capsules: A standard dose of EVCLO capsules (3 softgels) can be suited to a person who is maintaining his or her health. As the capsules were created for convenience, they’re also great for people who don't like the taste of the fresh, raw cod liver oil (or the taste of rosemary) and for travel, as they don’t require refrigeration to stay fresh.
Liquid: On the other hand, a person who is working with a practitioner (and likely making changes to diet) and desires a larger dose is better suited for the liquid, which is appropriate for certain protocols that call for therapeutic doses. It is also more economical.
Now, here’s the longer answer, that includes our approach to dosing...
Unique needs: Everyone is unique and their needs are unique, too. As you may have guessed by now, we are not attached to standard dosing.
It’s okay to vary serving sizes: We have written one teaspoon of liquid EVCLO. This could be considered an adult serving size. But again, people come in all shapes and sizes! We also recommend a half teaspoon for adults and sensitive individuals. Some will start with just drops of the oil. It is okay to vary the serving sizes - you will still be absorbing the amazing vitamins and omegas!
No large doses: We also don't suggest the EVCLO be taken everyday in large doses for an extended period of time. Please never force large doses.
Working with a practitioner: If, however, you are trying to get your vitamin levels back up and are working with a practitioner on your diet, perhaps you start with the liquid EVCLO and take it in the larger dose (1 teaspoon daily) for two weeks and then on an as-needed basis. The point is, there is no need to sustain a high dose for an extended period of time, unless prescribed by your doctor.
The bottom line that we’re trying to teach our customers is to dose by how they feel. This I know is vastly different from what we've been taught by the pharmaceutical industry with all the standard dosing.
This may not be the answer you were expecting. But we think it's important for people to reclaim their power and tap back into their gut instinct rather than being told how much to take and when. Again, we are all unique. You can't go wrong varying when and how you take your EVCLO (as long as you do not exceed the dosing recommendations).
As a quick recap, the liquid EVCLO will be more economical per bottle if you want to take larger serving sizes. We recommend the liquid EVCLO for those focused on trying to get their vitamin levels back up when working with their practitioners. We recommend the softgels for maintenance and again, those who don't like the taste of fish or are traveling.
