Lets Make A List Of Supplements Which Should Be Taken On Empty Stomach
I take about 20 different supplements, more are coming, and I have trouble deciding which ones should be taken with food, in the middle of a meal, and which ones on empty stomach.
I thought that with some special exceptions, most supplements are absorbed better with food, so I was just taking everything with food, as I didn't yet find time to research the optimal method for each supplement separately.
Now I read that Magnesium Citrate is better absorbed taken on empty stomach. There is contradicting advice on taking zinc - from "never take it on empty stomach" to "best absorbed taken away from food".
Can we make a big guide here in this thread, specifically about timing of supplements in relation to food. What should be taken in the middle of a meal, what on empty stomach, and what in some other special timing optimizations. This is rarely mentioned when reading supplement recommendations, and it can be very important.
So if you have knowledge about food-relation-timing of any supplement, mineral or other, please post a detailed explanation here, with source of that information (even if the source is your own n=1 experiment). Opinions without sources are not worth very much.
