Question is as above really. For the past 8 months I have taken my folic acid first thing in the morning when taking my temp. I've seen a few comments that it needs to be taken with a meal and I have just read the packet for the first time () which also states this.
I will no doubt forget to take it if I wait later in the day, but does taking it on an empty stomach mean that I'm not getting the full benefits or something?
Oh, am not pregnant btw, still TTC.
Thanks in advance, you lovely knowledgeable people.
I think it's only because it can upset some people's stomachs if they take it when their stomach is empty. If it doesn't cause you any problems then it isn't a problem I don't think. I take mine last thing at night.
I remember sitting in on a pharmacy lecture and they said something about taking things with meals, I think its because those that advise taking with a meal can cause gut rot if you don't. But I think that might be relating to medications rather than supplements, so as long as you feel ok, stay as you were!
