Re: iron supps..empty stomach
Daises28--I say do the best that you can. You can't always comply and thats okay too. You will still absorb some. Sometimes people have to take their supplements with food and that decreases the absorption by 50%. No need to be fanatical just try the best when you can. The very best thing that you can do; is eat red meat and take vit c 500 at the same time, just as you would with your iron supplement. It increases the absorption something like 6 fold. Taking a B-12 complex also works well when you are anemic in rebuilding RBC's. Everything helps. Take care. FLFG
Best of luck to you! FLFLOWERGIRL
