If taking more than one mushroom, start with one. Take a couple of drops under the tongue, or in coffee or juice. After 2 to 3 days, increase to one dropper full. Take that for a couple of days.
Then add in a second mushroom extract, by putting a couple of drops of that one, in with the extract/ drink mixture you’re already using. (Or under your tongue, if that’s your preferred way of taking them,) After 2 to 3 days, increase to a full dropper of the second one, as well.
Continue the same regimen with each additional mushroom extract type. *We are not Doctors, and are not offering medical advice. If you are on any medications you should check with your Dr. before taking anything.
