To take this product you can either use a dropper or a measuring cup, remembering that 1 ml corresponds to about 12 drops.
To facilitate intake by children, tablets can be crushed and mixed with fruit juice, yoghurt or other beverages. Alternatively you can mix them with a teaspoon of honey or jam to make them more pleasant-tasting. The same reasoning also applies to liquids, which can be diluted and sweetened to taste. Most of Dr Giorgini food supplements are not sweetened, to let the consumer free to add the sweetener he/she prefers (sugar, honey, natural sweeteners, etc.).
