What Is The Best Pine Pollen Dosage?
We frequently get asked how to select the best Pine Pollen dosage. Below are a few things to consider and our basic dosage recommendations.
Things to Consider When Determining the Best Pine Pollen Dosage
#1: Pine Pollen Dosage Varies For Men and Women
Because Pine Pollen contains natural phytoandrogen, the optimal dosage for each sex will vary.
It is true that both men and women need testosterone to live and regenerate cells and muscle tissue; however, men require a much larger amount of these hormones than women do. Because of that, the best Pine Pollen Dosage for men is going to be higher for men than women.
For men, Pine Pollen can be consumed daily, while it is recommended for women to consume it no more than a three to four days a week.
#2: Pine Pollen Dosage Depends on Goals
For people simply looking to benefit from Pine Pollen's immense power as a superfood, a teaspoon of the RAW powder or two to three capsules a day is more than enough to add a ton of nutrients to your diet. Again, refer to the guidelines above for differences for men and women.
For those looking to support testosterone, improve sports performance, or improve sex drive and libido, the best Pine Pollen dosage is going to be much higher.
This is often referred to as "mega dosing" and is not intended for everyone. Mega dosages of Pine Pollen range from 1 tablespoon (roughly 3 grams) to 10 grams (about 3 tablespoons).
When mega dosing, most people will break out their consumption through out the day; that is, one tablespoon upon waking, one before a workout (Pine Pollen is a great pre-workout supplement), and one before bed.
Most people who mega dose do so to harness the androgenic effects of Pine Pollen. As mentioned above, this can be done for individuals with low-t; people looking to build lean muscle; people looking to increase sex drive or erectile strength; and/or, athletes looking to improve workout recovery and sports performance.
#3: The Best Pine Pollen Dosage Depends on the Form
The last thing you need to know when picking the best Pine Pollen dosage is the type and form that you want to use; that is, capsules, powder, or tincture.
Capsules are by far the easiest way to consume Pine Pollen, as all you need to do is swallow with water. Powders are also easy, but require mixing with water, tea, coffee or a smoothie for consumption.
The thing to consider with capsules and powders is that some of the androgenic effect can be lost when consuming capsules and powders due to the digestive enzymes and acids in the stomach.
However, for simply powering your nutrition, these are by far the best and most economical choices (capsules and powder are the cheapest form as they require less processing).
Plus, despite the small amount of the hormones being destroyed during digestion, these options still provide a solid dose of beneficial phyto-androgens.
As hinted to above, if you're looking to support your hormones, sex-drive or libido, you will want to consider using the tincture form. This is because the androgenic phyto-hormones are suspended in MCT Oil, held under the tongue, and absorbed directly into the blood stream.
Basic Pine Pollen Dosage Guidelines
Our normal recommendation for the average person is between 500 mg to 1 g daily. See the table below for product specific doses to meet that recommendation.
Capsules: 2 to 3 a day (Men); 1 a day or 2 every other day (women)
Powder: 1 to 2 teaspoons a day (Men); 1 teaspoon daily or every other day (Women)
Tincture: 1-2 full eye droppers under the tongue daily (Men); 1 full eye dropper under the tongue every other day (Women).
Note: The Pine Pollen Dosage recommendations above are conservative and for those looking to harness the anti-aging benefits or Pine Pollen or simply to optimize their nutrition. Try varying dosages and adjust based on how you feel.
As always, consult with your doctor before starting any supplement or workout regimen to determine what is suitable for your needs. It is also important to note that Pine Pollen is not intended for use by those under the age of 21.
