There are no fillers in each dose of liquid glucosamine as there are in pills and tablet forms of the substance. The dosage information for daily use of Synflex is listed below.
The Recommended daily dosage for adult humans is one quarter of an ounce per day of Synflex. It is suggested the daily dose be doubled for the first 10 days for Syn-flex. After that there is no benefit in increasing the dosage. If one weighs over 230 pounds, the dosage of about one-half ounce per day is suggested.
One quarter of an ounce is about 1.5 teaspoons. Each bottle of Syn-flex has an easy to measure spout with the markings clearly visible. Simply squeeze the bottle until the required dosage fills the reservoir. Then pour it into a spoon, into water, or your favorite juice.
One may wish to keep a daily journal each day of how one feels. The majority of people taking Syn-flex start to feel the positive effects in 10 to 15 days. Sometimes it may take up to a month of daily doses to ease pain.
