Take your vitamins

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Do you know the best time to take your vitamins?  If not, here are some tips from Dr. Weil.

“A common question that we get is when to take supplements to get the most benefit. If you take daily supplements, vitamins or herbs, the following guidelines can help to lessen or prevent any side effects – and help to promote the full benefits of supplements:

  • Take your supplements during or right after a meal, unless directed otherwise, and drink plenty of fluids as well.
  • Take consistently to achieve maximum health benefits. It usually takes two to three months before you feel the full positive effects of adding nutritional supplements.
  • Take as indicated. Your supplements may be recommended or packaged for morning, noon or evening dosages, based on your individual health needs. For maximum benefit, take your supplements at the time of day indicated on the package.

In addition, keep your physician informed about your supplement usage, to help prevent any possible side effects and interactions with medications you may be taking.”
