In general, minerals such as as calcium and magnesium are best absorbed with food. It also best to divide the dosage between 2 meals rather than all in one to optimize bio availability. I would recommend doing that with nutrients such as Glucosamine as well.

There is no data to suggest that taking it with food increases absorption.
