Question about supplements and when is the best time to take them...
Does anyone have an opinion on the best time to take their vitamins? I have been taking mine at night, a habit I formed while pregnant and trying to keep down my prenatals. If I took them in the AM, I would just throw them back up. My coworker says her Dr. said the best time to take them is middle of the day for best absorption. Also, my supervisor was saying that his Dr. said NOT to take multi-vitamins with iron since the iron could prevent the absorption of other vitamins and mineral. Does anyone know abou these statements, true? not true?
I have to take iron as I am aenemic (aggravated by many years of low fat, very little red meat, high carb dieting). I have been taking a multi-vitamin w/iron, but I wonder if it would be better to take one with out and take a separate iron supplement. I am truly hoping that this diet with help this as I am adding quite a bit more red meat to my diet (eating it a couple times a week as opposed to a couple times a month).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
