Use Nero™ during times of any fluid loss, via work, exercise, menopausal hot flashes, illnesses with fever, or other loss of fluids (vomiting, diarrhea).For the athlete, adventurer or others who work and play outside, Nero™ is a perfect companion. Even before you feel thirsty, mild dehydration can cause fatigue, and alter your mood, energy level, and ability to think clearly.Nero™ can be thought of as herbal electrolytes, but is also cooling to the body and has protective and regenerating effects. Comprised of herbs that Chinese medicine describes as “fluid generating”, Nero™ increases the ability for cells to retain moisture and nourishes the body’s fluids, skin, muscle, joints, and organs. A lack of, or mal-distribution of these “fluids” cause symptoms such as dry skin, dry cough, thirst, burning pain in the stomach, constipation, dark urine, night sweats and some types of insomnia.

Directions and Dosage
- Use standard dose daily for daily hydration
- Use standard dose daily for illness recovery
- Use standard dose every 2 hours with water consumption in hot weather or when at risk for heat exhaustion.
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.
- Seek medical attention with high fever (>103˚F), heat exhaustion/stroke, or severe dehydration
- 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.
- 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.
