  1. Ah I hate brazil nuts guess I have to try again haha. Love this video! So much info but you speak so well that I found myself listening closely the whole time :)

    1. Thank you! Definitely not cheating – happy to answer. I think 2-5g per “dose” is adequate. Dose would mean pre-workout, mid-workout or post-workout (or whenever else you’d take them). I for sure would not exceed 20g per day. I take approx. 3g pre and post workout – I’m starting to experiment taking them mid-workout. Hope this helps!
