Since most people consume less fiber per day than is recommended, you should start out with one-teaspoon (3 g) servings twice a day and gradually increase, over two weeks, to the recommended serving. The recommended serving size per day is based on weight:
Up to 150 pounds (68kg) - 1 tablespoon (9g) per day
150 - 200 pounds (68 - 90kg): 11/2 tablespoons (14g) per day
200 pounds or more ( 90+ kg): 2 tablespoons (18g) per day
Children should start out with ½ teaspoon (11½g) per day and gradually increase to 1 teaspoon (3g) per day.
Use for 3 months for initial program, then as desired.
