All of our products are created with optimal absorption in mind and are safe to be taken together. They don't negatively interact with each other.
In general, we recommend that you take our supplements together with a meal such as breakfast or lunch. That being said, we do have a few products that have special instructions.
Our Iron capsule should be taken in between meals and separately from Calcium Plus, if present in your cart as well.
Our Multivitamin+Iron and Prenatal should also be taken in between meals if you also have Calcium Plus in your pack, whereas Calcium can be taken with food.
You mainly want to avoid taking Calcium Plus and Multi+Iron/Prenatal together, however that works for you, as large doses of supplemental calcium can interfere with iron absorption.
For optimal sleep benefits, we recommend taking Magnesium at night. It will not make you drowsy, so it can be taken earlier in the day, as well, but before bed provides a more relaxing and restorative sleep.
Minerals in general can be known to cause some stomach upset, and Zinc is no exception. Taking it alongside a full meal can help to reduce any possible upset, but you may also notice you feel fine even if you just take it with a snack - do what works for you!
Adaptogens such as Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, and American Ginseng can be taken on an empty stomach (unless you have a sensitive stomach).
Rhodiola should be taken in the morning due to its energizing properties.
American Ginseng should be taken earlier in the day or an hour before a task that requires more focus. Simply avoid taking it too late in the day, as it can be slightly energizing.
Quick Sticks are intended to be taken on an ‘as needed’ basis. Feel free to play around with taking them and see how you feel, and if you find yourself taking them more frequently, you can always add more to your cart for future orders. We simply recommend only taking one of each type of quick stick per day.
For optimal results, we recommend taking our Sleep Blend 30-60 minutes before your intended bedtime to best ensure a night of restful sleep. We do not recommend taking our Sleep Blend when you are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant, or are nursing.
Focus Blend works best when taken 30-60 minutes prior to the desired time you want to achieve better focus. The results should be seen for 3-4 hours post-ingestion, but this varies from person to person so see what works best for you. If you are caffeine sensitive, we don't recommend taking this past early afternoon to ensure it wears off before bed. In addition, we do not recommend taking our Focus Blend when you are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant, or are nursing.
All of that being said, everyone's body is unique and responds differently to supplements and powders! We would definitely recommend speaking with your doctor before beginning a new routine and to find out about any potential interactions if you are taking prescription medications.
