Aphrodisiac properties were noted (in mice) at 200mg/kg bodyweight a day, and performance enhancing properties were noted at 250mg-500mg/kg bodyweight a day (again, in mice). These mice studies lead to estimated human doses of:
- 1,100-2,700mg for a 150lb person
- 1,400-3,600mg for a 200lb person
- 1,800-4,500mg for a 250lb person
