A small percentage of women need to adjust their protocol. Here’s what to do if you are one of them:

  • If you are generally sensitive to supplements, start with two (2) tablets per day with a meal for one week, then increase to the recommended protocol of four (4) tablets per day.
  • If you experience digestive issues or loose stools, reduce your protocol to two (2) tablet per day with a meal. After symptoms abate, return to the recommended protocol of four (4) tablets per day and consider adding a probiotic or l-glutamine to your regimen.
  • Return to taking your Better Bones Basics at the regularly scheduled time when you are able.
