BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  "with a meal" or "away from food"?

Sciencia, Philoxicin and Phyto-D are recommended (on the bottle) to be taken "with a meal".  It is my understanding that if I'm taking Bromelain for joint pain, it works best for that application if taken "away from food".  Is the same true of Sciencia, Philoxicin and Phyto-D since my sole purpose for taking these is for arthritis pain in my left hip?  When I look-up Joint Formula these supps are among others that are recommended there as being helpful for maintaining healthy joints.

Please look at Prolotherapy.. the videos are scary but the real application is not.. it might save you from future surgery..

The usual recommendation is to follow the recommendations on the bottles or call DPN with any questions during business hours.

enzymes (i.e.Bromelain etc) work on the food when you take with a meal. taken away from meals, they are free to do other work.

as far as i know, generally, vitamins and minerals are better absorbed with food (especially a food containing the supplement in natural form and/or the cofactors).

herbs, not so sure as they are a food in themselves.

you can always call DPN and ask.

Thanks for your input.  I will call DPN tomorrow AM.  I have learned that the only way to get the desired results is to learn how to do it "right" and then do that way.

DPN told me to follow the directions on the bottle. But,to definitely take the Bromelain away from food for the application that I want it for.  It always pays to check with them.

Vitamin D (Phyto-D) particularly needs to be taken with food containing some fat, for best results.  :)
