I'm really glad that I subscribed to this thread because my mom called me up today with questions related to this statement by the WAPF
. She's trying to determine dosage for both her and my Dad in order to meet the recommendations of their ND with a better source of CLO than he recommends.
She's got the Blue Ice Royal Gel...according to GP's website
it's got 60% of the DV of A and 150% of the DV of D. Using the conversion guide Dave gave
that means that there's 3000 IU of A and 600 IU of D in 1/2 tsp. So...if on were to take the 1tsp recommended dosage on the WAPF website I get 6000 IU of A and 1200 IU of D. If I go by Dave's information then we're talking one would need somewhere around 1 3/4 tsp to get anywhere near the 9500/1950 the WAPF website mentions.
The information on the two websites doesn't really mesh. I'm assuming you'd go with GP's information, correct? Which would put dosage at 1 3/4 tsp for an adult, somewhere near 1T for a nursing/pregnant woman, and slightly more than 3/4 of a teaspoon for children. Does that makes sense?
