I’m sure at some time you have wondered if you should take your vitamins when you detox.
Well, yes – you need to take your vitamins during a detox because you want to replace the bad with the good, but the timing when you take your vitamins is important.
Never take your vitamins within 45 minutes of taking a fiber supplement or a detoxification supplement, especially if taking timed released vitamins and minerals (I do not recommend using timed released or buffered ever).
Fiber can interfere with supplement absorption, especially those that are oil-soluble. Detoxification products might remove your supplements along with the toxins before your body has a chance to assimilate them.
In other words, let any fiber cleanse or detoxification program do its job before you add supplements that you need to restore your health.
When To Take Your Vitamins
Take your multi-vitamin and additional supplements with your lowest fiber meal. Fiber is great for moving out the contents of your digestive tract, but mixing fibers such as psyllium husk or ground flax seed with other supplements, vitamins, minerals, and herbs, will dispose of them before they have a chance to be digested and assimilated within your body.
I recommend taking your vitamin and mineral supplements with breakfast or early in the day, and taking fiber supplements later in the day or before bed. This provides your body with needed fuel to operate efficiently during the day.
Then, stop eating all foods that require digestion around 6:00 to 7:00 P.M. to allow your body to repair and restore and to properly cleanse your colon.
Consider the same for any detoxification program supplements you may be taking. It is important to let the detox components scour toxins from your body before vitamin supplements are added.
This way, they don’t get in one another’s way.
