Eating and taking vitamins
I was wondering, if I eat a meal and take my vitamins with it, then go to the bathroom 10 mins. after eating, will the vitamins not have any positive effect at all because you just went to the bathroom?

If this is the case, should I eat, go to the bathroom, and then take my vitamins. I just do not want to defeat the purpose of taking vitamins.

You don't poo out your food you just probably won't poo it out till the next day...or even the day after.

Food can stay in your stomach for around 4 hours.

I take my vitamins with my morning meal and then before bedtime.

Thanks. The reason that I asked, is because, I have a lot of fiber in my diet, especially with the morning meal.

All should be fine...just make sure you take in enough fluids.
