Exclamation Supplementation Schedule (in relation to meals)

Hey guys.. I have a variety of supplements I take daily, but many of them are affected by timing (taken with meal/before/after).

Wondering the optimal timing/split up for this group of supps:

9x Fish oil (1200mg/ea)
2x Activated Charcoal (260mg/ea)
3x Psyllium Husk Caps (500mg/ea)
1x Primal Defense Probiotic
3x Zinc (50mg/ea)

If this is not the right place for this thread, please tell me where to ask!

Re: Supplementation Schedule (in relation to meals)

Generally, I would say check the bottle because different brands have different suggestions for use. That said:

-Fish oil - generally recommended to take with food in the AM

-Activated Charcoal with a meal, so you could choose, but AC absorbs drugs and supplements as well as heavy metals and such, so try to put a few hours between it and any drug or other supplement you take.

-Psyllium Husk - my bottle suggests doses AM and PM. Be sure to drink a full glass of H2O with each dose. Can be taken with or without food.

-Probiotics usually taken AM. Again, check the bottle. Mine is taken 20 min. before a meal and this is probably best for most probiotics as stomach acid from food could effect the benefits of the good' bacteria.

-Zinc - don't take with iron, calcium or other minerals as it could interfere with their absorption. Some people have stomach upset if not taken with a meal.
