Time to Take Supplements

What is the best time to take supplements? The fact is that various supplements are best taken at different times. For example, vitamin E is best taken with meals since it is fat soluble. The same holds true for vitamins A and D. But pycnogenol and natto are best taken on an empty stomach. The pycnogenol is better absorbed with water, not with food. And natto works best when it is not taken with food because it would simply digest the food instead of going into the bloodstream and doing its job of thinning the blood. To find out the best time to take supplements look on the supplement label. If it says take with water this usually means take an hour before or two hours after a meal.
