Adaptogenic—increases resilience to stress and fatigue
Enhances physical and cognitive performance
Supports wellness and healthy aging
Fós™ is ideal for the on-the-go executive, athlete, busy parent, and others who require physical and mental strength for work, play, and competition. Fós™ fights fatigue without the side effects of caffeine, supplying sustainable energy, and increased resilience to life’s stresses. Fós™ supports the body and nervous system, healing, and recovery from injury and illness.
Zoi Medicinals™ tinctures are alcohol (27%) and vegetable glycerin (10%) extracts of non-toxic herbs. All herbs used in the manufacturing of Zoi Medicinals™ products have been tested for heavy metals, bacteria, fungus, and pesticides.
Directions and Dosage
Use standard dose daily for consistent energy support and to improve the body’s ability to handle stress.
Use standard dose daily for injury and illness recovery.
Use standard dose every 2 hours in times of stress and when extra energy is required.
Liquid tinctures are rapidly absorbed by the body and may be taken directly by mouth or in a small amount of water or juice. If alcohol content is a concern, a standard dose (1.5 ml) in one cup of water dilutes the alcohol content to less than 0.5%.
The standard, adult dose is three droppers full (1.5 ml) three times a day, or as directed by your health care professional. A dropper full is drawn by full compression of the dropper bulb (the dropper may not appear “full”).
Standard adult dose (100-150 lb) – 3 droppers full (1.5 ml), three times a day.
Standard adult dose (>150 lb) – 4 droppers full (2.0 ml), three times a day.
Standard child dose (30-100 lb) – 1 dropper full (0.5 ml), three times a day.
For some, it may take several weeks to notice an effect. Consistency is more important than dose, so we encourage you to take some tincture each day even if you can’t keep to a regular schedule. As your body responds to the tincture, you may decrease the dose, accordingly.
Take tinctures with food, as the most common side effect is minor stomach upset.
Consult a medical professional if pregnant or breastfeeding.
Not to exceed five droppers full at a time.
Discontinue use if any new symptoms appear, including symptoms of allergic reaction.
May cause palpitations at high doses (ginseng).
If experiencing minor headache or digestive discomfort, reduce the dosage to ⅓ of starting dose and gradually increase to the desired dosage.
Every body is different, and herbs alter internal processes, so it is important to find the best dosage for you at any given time, while staying within the recommended range.
