Have you seen any data on bioavailability of the active ingredient of skullcap? My mother-in-law started getting sick the other day (I don't think it's covid but it's possible), and she asked me how much to take. I said I have no idea, so just take one every 8 hours to be on the safe side.

If she's getting the liftmode stuff off Amazon that scoop is 200mg. The max dose is like 1500mg/day. I did a scoop in the morning, with lunch and at night.

Here is an in vivo mouse study w oral admin and serum measures of baicalin:

240mg/kg 2x per day was the effective low dose, which would be 19.4mg/kg in humans, or 1200mg 2x per day in me.

This powder recommends up to 1500mg/day, so I'd probably start at 750mg 2x per day. EDIT: Label stays start low to gauge response.

Not sure what the pills contain. 2 pills every 8 hours is probably safe for a short while.

Only contraindication I have found is when mixed with black catechu.

Trying to collect some data:
