Answer to your Health Question

Question (02/11/2011):

I take prevacid once a day, I am also supposed to take Metamucil once a day, I also take individual vitamins A, E, B, and D and two antioxidants; Pycnogenol and grape seed extract.

Should I take all these at once or is there a more optimal time to ingest each of these meds and supplements

Joan

Answer:

Dear Joan,

It is best to take Prevacid 30 minutes before breakfast.

Any time of day is appropriate to take Metamucil.

Fat-soluble vitamins need fat in order to be absorbed, so they should always be taken with meals that contain fat.

Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamins A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K.

Pycnogenol is water-soluble; it is best taken in divided doses in the morning

Take your vitamin E at the same time as grapeseed extract.

The best time to take your antioxidant supplements is before, during or after your workouts.
