Frequently Asked Questions about Orthomolecular’s OrthoBiotic:
When to take Ortho-Biotic: What time of day should I take Ortho-Biotic?
People frequently ask about what time of day to take their probiotics. We often recommend that probiotics be taken in the morning but they can be taken anytime of the day. Orthobiotic has the recommended dose for adults and adolescents 13+ years: Take one capsule once per day. If you are on antibiotics or antifungals, take at least 2-3 hours before or after and consult your physician.
Do you take Ortho-Biotic with Food: Should I take Ortho-Biotic with a meal?
Generally, it doesn’t matter what time of the day you take a probiotic but often it is recommended that it be taken with food or within 30 minutes of eating. The logic behind this recommendation is that eating a meal often lowers the stomach acid level and that your stomach will empty soon, sending the probiotic along it’s journey to help your gut health.
