Our expert says:
Hi Christine, if you take supplements on an empty stomach, they spend about 30 minutes in your stomach before they would go through to your small intestine. If you take supplements with a meal (in other words, up to 15 minutes before eating, they can spend up to 3 hours in your stomach, depending on the size of your meal. So, if you take your medication 30 minutes before your meal, you can then safely take your supplements after your meal. I hope this makes sense and answers your question. Kind regards, Andrea du Plessis
