First off, taking on an empty stomach will help improve absorption..
Secondly, sometimes people have a lot of inflammation that needs a large dose to see immediate results. This is NOT something that we recommend without medical practitioner oversight. In this case up to 4 capsules two to three times a day for 2-3 days could really make a difference.
Not all pain is inflammation. If you have a bulging disk impinging on a nerve, no amount of inflammation support will help.
