If I'm taking biotin, iron, calcium & acidillophus vitamins at the same time, is it effective & are there certain times to take each?

If I'm taking biotin, iron, calcium & acidillophus vitamins at the same time, is it effective & are there certain times to take each?

OK together but...: Minerals are best absorbed on an empty stomach as adequate stomach acid helps & our stomachs have the most acid when empty. However, stomach acid kills acidophilus, so it's far better to take it after a meal (for some strange reason many probiotic labels say take on empty stomach- they're wrong!). Biotin can be taken any time. Taking vit c with iron improves absorption. Consider vit. D in winter. ...Read more
