Does anyone know....? (re: vitamins/supplements)

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm just wondering, should I take my vitamins/supplements all together in the morning, or spread them out throughout the day? I'm taking my prenatal, B complex, D3, St. John's Wort, and an iron supplement.

I don't think I eat something rich in vitamin c every day.


Quoting Magnolia7:

Calcium inhibits iron absorbtion. Take iron separately with vitamin c rich food to increase bioavailability.




Quoting polkaspots:

I've always taken everything at the same time, and that includes iron pills, calcium chews and prenatals. What does it matter?






Quoting tabi_cat1023:

If you take any calcium dont take it the same time as iron...so check your prenatal if it has calcium take it a different time, BUT take iron with something..even juice that is strong in vit c
