The Best Time To Take Omega 3
I am taking multivitamin, omega 3, vitamin d and alpha lipoic acid daily. When is the best time to take each of them. Eg. Before or after meal.
When should I take omega 3 and multivitamins (I play gym and I go to school. What's the best time)?
Best not together...: I advise taking multivits in the morning &/or afternoon- if it's a single pill am is best (as they may give you energy), if multiple pills can take some ins am & some in afternoon. The minerals in the vitamin are better absorbed on an empty stomach but a/d/e better absorbed after food. Stomach upset less likely after a meal. Best to take omega 3's after a meal but at a different time. See comment:. ...Read more

Doc wants me to take three 300mg of krill oil daily after my omega 3 test came back. I had been taking 1 krill plus a fish oil daily. Is this unusual?
EPA ; DHA: Fish oil and krill oil have 2 major components: epa and dha. Generally people need at least 1-2 grams of epa, and at least 500 mg dha daily. The preparations you were using may not have delivered this much of each component in the capsules you were taking, so you needed more. Please know that if you eat wild alaskan salmon, sardines, etc at least twice each week, you may not need supplements. ...Read more

Hello, I have Nutrilite heart health omega-3 supplement, but It says to take 3 softgels per day before meals. Can I take all three softgels at once?
You Like Fish Burps?: Better to split them up. Better absorbed with food. If you don't eat three meals a day then take two with one meal and one with another. But in this case food will help. Or, take the third with a healthy snack. Taking all three at once won't hurt but you want to get your money's worth, right? Also, if you eat some salmon that day, you can skip the supplement.
