How much Udo’s Oil should I take a day?

What’s the dosage for children?
6 months - 1 year = 1 tsp
1-3 years = 2 tsp
3-10 years =1 Tbsp
10 years and up = 2 or more Tbsp
Is there any danger in taking too much?
Not really, but as with any oil, your body will let you know if you are taking too much. You will feel nauseated and will have much softer stools, almost diarrhea. If this occurs, just cut back.
How soon will changes be apparent?
This varies from person to person. Udo states that with the proper dosage there should be a noticeable improvement in athletic performance and the skin should become softer and smoother, within a few weeks.
What about capsules versus the liquid oil?
Taking Udo’s Oil in capsules is not ideal. It takes 14 caps to give you 1 Tbsp of the liquid oil. The caps are for convenience and travelling, not for continuous use.
Can the oil be added to hot foods?
Yes it can: oatmeal, steamed vegetables, baked potatoes, soups, etc – after they are served. (Temp. up to 325° F)
Can I stir-fry with the oil?
