Hi Guys,

Pretty much what it says on the tin. If I take a vitamin which is fat soluble (and not already packaged with fat e.g. in capsules) how quickly afterwards should I consume some fat? Also, how much fat needs to go along with them for full absorption?

Right some I'm having vitamin D supps and washing them down with a fatty coffee each morning.

Thanks,
Cowlean

I kind of thought we were supposed to have a little fat before taking the fat soluble vitamin, but that's just what I've read in the popular press; I have no idea whether it has a scientific basis.

Ruminating, but I'd think it wouldn't matter whether it was just before or after, just as long as it was digested at the same time.
