WHEN TO TAKE YOUR SUPPLEMENTS


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.

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

MAGNESIUM

When to take: Before bed to promote relaxation. Magnesium Glycinate is my favorite form.

PROBIOTICS

When to take: At bedtime

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

*Some supplements may interact with prescription medications. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.
