Here is My Question:
I have been ordered to take Vitamin D (1x), iron (1x), and alpha lipoic acid (2x) daily. How should these be taken for optimal absorption with regard to taking them at the same time and with or without food?
Alpha lipoic acid and vitamin D can be taken with or without food. Iron supplements should be taken one hour before or two hours after meals usually with water. All can be taken together.
