Vitamins & Minerals
Depending on the type of vitamins and minerals in the supplement, ideal timing for taking this category of supplements can vary significantly:
Digestive Enzymes & Bitters
Digestive enzymes and bitters are meant to aid in digestion by either providing the body with the digestive enzymes and acid necessary to properly digest, or by stimulating the body’s own production of the enzymes and acid. Ideally, bitters should be taken around 15 minutes prior to a meal to help stimulate your appetite and give your body some time to switch on the digestive process.
If the timing you were given for a specific supplement prescription differs from the recommendations given in this article, please consult with your healthcare practitioner before changing the timing of your dose.
