Supplements - How To Take Them

It's unfortunate but many people have digestive systems that find it hard to break down food and absorb nutrients - this can be caused by poor levels of stomach acid, toxic substances in the gut, insufficient production of digestive enzymes among other reasons.

This condition can of course be dramatically improved as nutrient intake is increased slowly. An organic diet is of course the healthiest you can use but you may just need to compensate for any shortfalls and take some supplements.

You don't need to visit your doctor to take supplements they can be self-prescribed once taken in small regular amounts, which can be ideal for treating any minor health problems.

Taken Supplements in large amounts for either nutritional support of server pathological conditions have been found to be therapeutic on their own or with conventional medical treatments. Always remember larger doses should be taken under the supervision of your physician or nutritional therapist.

When To Take Supplements

The best time to take supplements is with meals the body can absorb it best when your digestive system has been stimulated by the presence of food. Time-released formulas should be taken with food as to make sure they travel through the body at the correct speed and for efficient release at the appropriate place.

Water-soluble vitamins quickly pass through the body, so basically taken them twice or three times a day is often the best practice. Fat-soluble vitamins are better absorbed if taken with meals that include some fat. Almost all minerals work in conjunction with vitamins and should be taken along with them.

Some minerals can interfere with the absorption of others so make sure to take them at different time to your multiformula. If you multiformula contains antagonistic minerals there will not be enough to conflict with one another so you don't need to worry.

Vitamins A, D, E - Should be taken with meals which include a little oil or Fat

Vitamin B-Complex - This should be taken first thing in the morning to give maximum energy, but can of course be taken anytime especially if taken with whole grains.

Vitamin C - Taken with meal if possible, can be taken on an empty stomach if you don't feel like eaten because of a cold. Take two or three times a day.

Time-Release - Take with your main meal of the day.

Iron - Best absorbed with food.

Calcium - About 30 minutes before bedtime.

Magnesium - About 30 minutes before bedtime.

Multiformulas - These can be taken anytime but best with small amounts of food.
