I take the capsules now as well. I started with one capsule with breakfast and one with supper...then upped it to two after a week. I'm now at 3 capsules with breakfast and supper.
If you eat 3 times daily, start with one daily then the next day one at two meals then the day after one at three meals...do that for a week and increase.
I did have some mild gut discomfort from them initially...no biggie, however.
Stick it out through the discomfort..however. Definitely worth it.
Don't take a high dosage starting out.
Keep us posted.
