An ethanolic extract of 125mg/kg has been used in rats with efficacy, which translates to an estimated human dosage of:
- 1,400mg for a 150lb person
- 1,800mg for a 200lb person
- 2,300mg for a 250lb person
These are estimated human doses based on rat studies, and it is uncertain if they are the optimal dosage or not.
