Dosages for adults 12 years & older:
4 to 16 grams per day total, divided into two or three separate doses. Start at a low dose and increase gradually. Maximum daily dose is 30 grams. If you stabilize at a lower dose, stay there. Under 12 years old consult your physician. Acacia should be used daily for best result.
Begin with a low dose (try 1/2 level teaspoon, twice daily). Add Acacia to an empty cup, then stir with a fork as you add liquid. Let rest for a few seconds and then stir again to completely dissolve. Or, stir Acacia into any moist foods, hot or cold. Gradually increase your daily dose until IBS symptoms stabilize. Diarrhea and spasms should resolve in just a few days, especially as you begin to increase your dose. Constipation, particularly if it has been chronic and severe, may take several weeks, and often requires a gradual increase to the maximum dose of about 4 level tablespoons per day.
