Nutrition Update: When Should I Take My Dietary Supplements?

dietary-supplementsdietary-supplementsMany of us take dietary supplements daily, but how often do we think about when to take them? Try these tips to help you improve absorption of your dietary supplements:

■ Take multivitamins with a meal because the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K require some fat to be absorbed. Also, drink plenty of water to help vitamins dissolve efficiently.

■ Take calcium supplements in doses of 500 milligrams with meals. Don’t take calcium supplements at the same time as a supplement with iron because the two minerals can interfere with each other, resulting in reduced absorption.

■ Take fiber supplements several hours before taking any nutritional supplement because fiber can bind to minerals and could make them unavailable for the body to use.

■ Ask your doctor or pharmacist if your vitamins may have any potential interactions with your prescription or over-the-counter medications.
