Take on an empty stomach between meals. For maximum absorption do not ingest with foods containing cholesterol (animal fat), including all meat, dairy, eggs, seafood, etc. This does not mean that you eliminate these foods from your diet, only that you take Moducare AWAY from cholesterol-containing foods. Cholesterol has a very similar molecular structure and the two compounds “compete” for absorption. You can take Moducare® with fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, or any beverage which does not contain cholesterol. Adults: Take one capsule 3 times daily or two capsules upon arising and one capsule before bed. Children: 1 capsule per day for children under 5 years; 2 per day for children between 5 and 12 years; and children over 12 years can take the adult dose. For very young children who are unable to swallow a capsule, the capsule can be opened and the contents mixed with applesauce or other fruit/vegetable.
