WHEN TO TAKE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS

Updated: 3 days ago


AMINO ACIDS

Examples: Glutamine, N- Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), Tyrosine, Taurine, Glycine, etc.

When to take: On an empty stomach (30 minutes before or 1 hour after meals).

VITAMINS A, D, E, and K

These vitamins are fat soluble, meaning they need to be taken with fat to be absorbed.

When to take: Take with food, Vitamin D is best taken in the morning or midday.


SELENIUM

Selenium absorption can be enhanced by taking it with Vitamin E and fat.


When to take: Take with food.


IRON

When to take: Take on an empty stomach. Increase absorption by taking with Vitamin C.

Take at least 2 hours away from zinc and calcium for maximal absorption.


ZINC

Can cause stomach upset, if this occurs, take with a meal.

When to take: Take at least 2 hours away from iron and calcium for maximal absorption.


MAGNESIUM

Magnesium Glycinate is my favorite form as it is highly bioavailable, less irritating to the digestive tract, and is more calming than other forms.


When to take: Before bed to promote relaxation.


PROBIOTICS

When to take: At bedtime

*Always take your supplements as recommended by your health care provider, based on your individual health needs.
