Start low and slow: Smidge® supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.
Because Smidge® HCl + Enzymes contains HCl (hydrochloric acid), it's not intended for babies or toddlers, unless otherwise prescribed by a healthcare professional.
